The purpose of this study was to examine whether if the effect of standing with assistance of the tilt table on diaphragm excursion and thickness in the stroke patients with tracheotomy.
Lack of proper stroke care delivery leads to poor patient outcomes in middle- and low-income countries that can be improved by implementation of international standards. We aim to determine feasibility of implementing stroke core measures and training through blended learning modules in resource poor countries to improve stroke outcomes.
Korean Stroke Cohort for functioning and rehabilitation (KOSCO)-II is a large, multi-centre prospective cohort study for all acute first-ever stroke patients admitted to participating hospitals in nine distinct areas of Korea. This study is designed as a 10-year, longitudinal follow-up investigating the residual disabilities, activity limitations, and quality of life issues arising in patients suffering from first-ever stroke as previous similar stroke cohort with KOSCO. The main objectives of this study are to identify and compare the factors that influence residual disability and long-term quality of life in first-ever acute stroke patients with KOSCO. The secondary objectives of this study are to determine and compare the risk of mortality and recurrent vascular events in first-ever acute stroke patients with KOSCO. Investigators will investigate longitudinal health behaviors and patterns of healthcare utilization, including stroke rehabilitation care. Investigators will also investigate the long-term health status, mood, and quality of life in stroke patient caregivers. In addition, investigators will identify baseline and ongoing characteristics that are associated with secondary outcomes.
In this study, we will be looking at results of tests of memory and thinking and daily activities in a group of people without known chronic kidney disease (CKD) , and a group of CKD patients, and follow them for up to four more years, including after they start dialysis or receive a transplant. We are doing this study to compare how often memory loss, confusion and difficulty with daily activities occur in those without and those with CKD. Additionally, we are doing this study to identify risk factors for memory and thinking problems in CKD patients. The information received through the NDI will be utilized to help track our study population and help provide useful information regarding cause of death of those in our study.
The aim of this study is to describe the effect of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) in the form of functional electrical stimulation (FES) applied to different lower limb muscles on reactive balance and gait performance in stroke participants. Methods: Twenty individuals with chronic stroke will be asked to perform an experimental protocol that includes a postural disturbance in the form of a slip- or trip-like perturbation and a standardized walking test in both laboratory and outdoor environments with and without FES applied to different lower limb muscles of the paretic leg. FES will be applied using an advanced software that is able to synchronize muscle activation with the time of perturbation onset and according to the phases of gait. This project design aims to examine whether a specific pattern of lower limb muscle stimulation could improve the kinematic and behavioral responses during reactive balance following slip- and trip-like perturbations. Additionally, the project aims to see if the kinematic and spatio-temporal gait parameters can be modified during a standardized walking test under different sensory and environmental conditions.
The main purpose of the study: To evaluate the effect of nitrosone 1 special for patients with acute ischemic cerebral stroke. The secondary purpose of the study: To evaluate the effectiveness of the injection of nitrosone I. T for loyal patients with acute ischemic stroke All women think.
Objective To evaluate whether Xingnaojing injection combined with Naoxueshu oral liquid can significantly improve the clinical outcome of patients with intracerebral hemorrhage. Secondary objectives included to evaluate whether combined application of Xingnaojing injection and Naoxueshu oral liquid can promote hematoma absorption or reduce perihematoma cerebral edema in patients with intracerebral hemorrhage
The regional health authorities of South-East Norway has commissioned Sørlandet Hospital (SSHF), Norway to establish mechanical thrombectomy in large-vessel occlusion stroke. SSHF is a limited volume stroke center, and introduction of thrombectomy may impose quality challenges. Therefore the implementation will be guided by a simulation based quality assurance program. In this study, we will monitor timelines, technical and clinical outcomes, including adverse events.
The objective of this study is to establish a near-real-time prospective monitoring program in Medicare, Optum and MarketScan Research data to evaluate the benefit of new cardiovascular disease (CVD) drugs for older adults with frailty. Prospective monitoring program seeks to find early effectiveness and safety signals of new drugs by updating the analysis at regular intervals as new Medicare data become available. This study specifically aims to emulate a prospective surveillance of the effectiveness and safety of non-vitamin K oral anticoagulants (NOAC) vs. a comparator, warfarin, in older adults with atrial fibrillation and different frailty status. This program will be enhanced by incorporating a novel claims-based frailty index, which has been shown useful in assessing how the benefits and harms of drug therapy vary by frailty.
Purpose The purpose of the study is to evaluate if training with oral screen IQoro® improves swallowing in patients with dysphagia after stroke. Method Inpatient from a stroke unit in Sweden who have been assessed with fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing(FEES) which proves swallowing difficulties (dysphagia) were recruited. The participants were randomise to control- or intervention group. Both groups received usual care. The intervention group were instructed to oral screen (IQoro®) training for 13 weeks. Follow up with FEES was made 13 weeks post of recruitment. The assess with FEES was recorded and the recordings are going to be analyzed afterwards to compare the swallowing ability between baseline and follow up in group and between group.
