141. Patient Dignity (Formerly: Patient Modesty): Volume 92

, tacit agreement – no females were allowed. This would be strictly for men and men felt safe in these situations. I don’t think naked military induction exams really became standard until WW1. That’s not to say it didn’t occur during the Crimean War, the American Civil War or the Franco-Prussian War. We’d have to research that. But before “modern” warfare, governments were more interested in bodies in any condition to man the front lines. Doctor’s examining naked bodies didn’t really begin seriously (...) TO THE EXTENT THAT NONE OF YOU CAN TRULY APPRECIATE. PT At , said... Dr. Bernstein, I looked at Volume 12. There were more women participating back then and that was an excellent discussion about the pelvic exams in exchange for birth control. I hope that isn't still as mandatory as it was then. The discussion was as well a bit more focused on patients simply being modest and/or uncomfortable with opposite gender intimate care without going into staff misbehavior or unprofessional behavior as being

Complete necrosis of myocardial cells at risk requires at least 2–4 h, or longer, depending on the presence of collateral cir- culation to the ischaemic zone, persistent or intermittent coronary arterial occlusion, the sensitivity of the myocytes to ischaemia, pre- conditioning, and individual demand for oxygen and nutrients. 2

the clinical and radiologic characteristics of stroke in Uganda, with particular attention to differences by HIV serostatus. We will describe the clinical presentation of stroke, including history and physical exam findings and presenting modified National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (mNIHSS) score. We will also compare radiologic characteristics, including location of the stroke and its classification as either ischemic or hemorrhagic. We hypothesize that: i) HIV-infected patients are predominantly (...) in Uganda. We will fit regression models to identify predictors of poor outcomes as described in Aim 1, both in the total cohort, and restricted to the HIV-infected cohort. We hypothesize that age, presence of hypertension, dyslipidemia, smoking, and low Glasgow coma score are associated with PSO in Uganda and that HIV-specific predictors of poor outcome are low mid-upper arm circumference (MUAC), low CD4 cell count, high HIV viral load, and report of recent constitutional symptoms.

published, the topic has been roughly the same and unchanged, essentially, a patient's right for privacy when undressed either in the operating room, procedure room, office exam room or the patient's hospital room. The thread is about the ethical and perhaps legal right for the patient to be able to request and hopefully receive the medical attention by professionals of the patient's desired gender when undergoing a medical examination or procedure. That request to whatever part of the medical system (...) patients has never meant that I was unaware of the concept of modesty especially when applied to genital/rectal areas of the body and breasts in the female. And certainly that is why I always had a female chaperone present with female pelvic exams. But, in my mind, since I got no warnings from my patients, was that they looked at the examination value for their diagnosis and health as trumping any personal modesty issue and accepted that as such. Looking back I am not sure that for some of the requests

Impossible for a living being to achieve. The few remaining people in the room use hushed voices. The room feels sacred, somehow. I look at the man again.

Specific Aim 3 will study the relationship among IASIS treatment-related changes in rs-MEG slow-wave imaging, PCS, and neuropsychological measures in Veterans with mTBI.

The success of the proposed research will for the first time confirm that facilitation of slow-wave generation in wakefulness leads to significant therapeutic benefits in mTBI, including an ultimate reduction of abnormal slow-waves accompanied by an improvement in PCS and cognitive functioning.
