Although driveline wiring has built-in redundancy as a safety measure, driveline trauma can cause internal damage and lead to pump failure. Damage can be acute such as a cutting or crush injury or the result of chronic stress/fatigue on the line. In these settings, there will often be alarms preceding or accompanying the pump stoppage, but alarms will cease once the batteries are drained. There is a risk of de novo

63. Fatigue, Sleep Disturbances, and Their Influence on Quality of Life in Cervical Dystonia Patients Full Text available with Trip Pro

Fatigue, Sleep Disturbances, and Their Influence on Quality of Life in Cervical Dystonia Patients Nonmotor symptoms (NMS) are highly prevalent in cervical dystonia (CD). In general, fatigue and sleep are important NMS that determine a decreased health-related quality of life (HR-QoL), but their influence in CD is unknown. The authors systematically investigated fatigue, excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS), and sleep quality in patients with CD and controls and assessed the influence (...) of psychiatric comorbidity, pain, and dystonia motor severity. They also examined the predictors of HR-QoL.The study included 44 patients with CD and 43 matched controls. Fatigue, EDS, and sleep quality were assessed with quantitative questionnaires and corrected for depression and anxiety using analysis of covariance. The Toronto Western Spasmodic Torticollis Rating Scale and the Clinical Global Impression Scale-jerks/tremor subscale were used to score motor severity and to assess whether motor

CJEM Infographic: Bystander Fatigue and CPR Quality by Older Adults CJEM Infographic: Bystander Fatigue and CPR Quality by Older Adults - CanadiEM CJEM Infographic: Bystander Fatigue and CPR Quality by Older Adults In , by Simon Huang November 15, 2016 This month CanadiEM is featuring an article from the Canadian Journal of Emergency Medicine (CJEM) that compares the effectiveness of the continuous chest compression (CCC) and 30:2 compressions to ventilation (30:2) methods of CPR in an older (...) bystander population. Considering that most cardiac arrests occur at home where both the victim and bystander (spouse) are aged in their sixties, there is merit in evaluating these two methods in terms of fatigue and CPR quality for this population. To compare these two methods, Liu et al . 1 conducted a randomized crossover trial with 59 participants over the age of 55 who were physically capable of performing CPR. Study participants were instructed on both methods of CPR and allowed to practice for 5

Effect of Processed Honey and Royal Jelly on Cancer-Related Fatigue: A Double-Blind Randomized Clinical Trial. Cancer-related fatigue (CRF) is experienced by 50% to 90% of cancer patients and can severely affect their quality of life and functional capacity. Several randomized trials have recommended various ways to alleviate the symptoms of CRF with or without recourse to medications.The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of processed honey and royal jelly on the symptoms (...) . Both groups were assessed at the beginning of the study, after 2 weeks, and then at the end of 4 weeks of treatment. Fatigue was measured using a visual analogue fatigue scale (VAFS) and fatigue severity scale (FSS). The results were compared between the two arms of study, and equality of probability distributions was assessed using a Kolmogorov-Smirnov test.The mean age of the 52 patients was 54.84.

A case report of shoulder fatigue imbalance in wheelchair rugby: implications to pain and injury The purpose of this case-control study was to examine potential agonist-antagonist fatigue imbalance during wheelchair rugby activity. A 16-channel NORAXON electromyography (EMG) system 1400A with telemetry was used to assess EMG activity in a 39-year-old male with a C6 complete spinal cord injury (American Spinal Injury Association Impairment Scale (AIS) A), 17.5 years post injury. Mean amplitude (...) continuous pushing. The current study is one of the first to document sport fatigue through electromyography during intermittent, live play rather than clinical conditions (that is, continuous pushing).

Exploring Fatigue Trajectories in Early Symptomatic Knee and Hip Osteoarthritis: 6-year Results from the CHECK Study To examine whether different groups of fatigue trajectories can be identified among patients with early symptomatic osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee or hip, to describe the level of fatigue severity within each of these fatigue groups, and to investigate the involvement of age, sex, use of medication, comorbidity, and OA severity in relation to group membership.Six years (...) of followup data on fatigue (Medical Outcomes Study Short Form-36 Vitality scale) came from the Cohort Hip and Cohort Knee (CHECK) cohort. Growth mixture modeling was applied to identify distinct fatigue trajectories as well as to take into account the effects of the patient characteristics.Three fatigue trajectories were identified: low fatigue, low-to-high fatigue, and high fatigue. Latter trajectories showed considerable overlap from years 2 to 6, but differed in some patient characteristics

70. Evaluating the Impact of Whole-Body Vibration (WBV) on Fatigue and the Implications for Driver Safety Full Text available with Trip Pro

Evaluating the Impact of Whole-Body Vibration (WBV) on Fatigue and the Implications for Driver Safety Driver fatigue is a significant contributor to motor vehicle accidents and fatalities, although the exact share of those events attributable to fatigue is still uncertain. In 2013, accidents involving heavy trucks killed more than 3,944 people in the United States, with over 80 percent of those killed not in the truck. Numerous factors contribute to driver fatigue among commercial drivers (...) , including shiftwork schedules; high prevalence of alcohol and substance use; extended hours; comorbid medical conditions, such as pain; and high prevalence of sleep disorders. Many of these factors have been studied extensively in the trucking industry. Whole-body vibration (WBV) is another potential factor that may contribute to driver fatigue, but it has received little attention. Beginning in January 2015, Bose Corporation and AIG commissioned the RAND Corporation to study the link between WBV

73. The Pathophysiology of Fatigue in Parkinson's Disease and its Pragmatic Management Full Text available with Trip Pro

The Pathophysiology of Fatigue in Parkinson's Disease and its Pragmatic Management Fatigue is 1 of the most common and most disabling symptoms among patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) and has a significant impact on their quality of life. Yet the pathophysiology of fatigue is poorly understood, while its treatment is "limited to an empirical approach based on plausible hypotheses."PubMed was searched for articles with the key words "Parkinson's disease" or "parkinsonism" and "fatigue (...) " that were published by or before August 2015. The analysis of articles, which were selected on subjective grounds, was used to review the current knowledge of pathophysiology and treatment outcomes in studies focused on fatigue in PD.Clinical and experimental findings support the view that fatigue is a primary manifestation of PD. The main hypothesized pathophysiological mechanisms include abnormal basal ganglia (BG)-cortical mechanisms, particularly frontal loops, and an imbalance between

75. Fatigue in Parkinson’s disease: report from a mutidisciplinary symposium Full Text available with Trip Pro

Fatigue in Parkinson’s disease: report from a mutidisciplinary symposium Fatigue is a severe problem for many people living with Parkinson's disease (PD). Best estimates suggest that more than 50% of patients experience this debilitating symptom. Little is known about its etiology or treatment, making the understanding of fatigue a true unmet need. As part of the Parkinson's Disease Foundation Community Choice Research Program, patients, caregivers, and scientists attended a symposium (...) on fatigue on 16 and 17 October 2014. We present a summary of that meeting, reviewing what is known about the diagnosis and treatment of fatigue, its physiology, and what we might learn from multiple sclerosis (MS), depression, and cancer-disorders in which fatigue figures prominently too. We conclude with focused recommendations to enhance our understanding and treatment of this prominent problem in PD.
