Gene Basset's Vietnam sketchbook : a cartoonist's wartime perspective by Thom W Rooke( )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 944 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1965, Gene Basset, a well-known political cartoonist, was sent to Vietnam by his newspaper publishing syndicate. His assignment: to sketch scenes of the increasingly controversial war in order to help the newspaper-reading public better understand the events occurring in Southeast Asia. In much the same way that M.A.S.H. gave viewers an irreverent, wry view of war and its devastating effects on citizens as well as soldiers, Basset's sketches portray the everyday, often mundane, aspects of wartime with an intimate touch that eases access to the dark subject matter. In this affectionately curated collection, Thom Rooke, author, doctor, and longtime friend of the artist, deftly leads us through more than eighty of Basset's cartoons, organizing his insights according to the well-known stages of grief, from denial to acceptance, and demonstrating how Basset's images convey moments of trauma, coping, and healing. From scenes of American GIs haggling with Vietnamese street vendors to a medic dressing the wounds of a wide-eyed soldier, Basset's endearing sketches and Rooke's friendly prose humanize life during wartime. The seriocomic vignettes and analyses are delivered with wit, compassion, and subtle charm sure to please academic, artistic, and casual readers alike. -- Back cover
The quest for cortisone by Thom W Rooke( )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This fascinating history recounts the discovery of cortisone and pulls the curtain back on the peculiar cast of characters responsible for its advent, including two enigmatic scientists, Edward Kendall and Phillip Hench, who went on to receive the Nobel prize. The book also explores the key role the Mayo Clinic played in fostering cortisone's development, and looks at drugs that owe their heritage to the so-called 'King of Steroids.'"--Back cover

Burden of hospitalization in clinically diagnosed peripheral artery disease: A community-based study( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The burden and predictors of hospitalization over time in community-based patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) have not been established. This study evaluates the frequency, reasons and predictors of hospitalization over time in community-based patients with PAD. We assembled an inception cohort of 1798 PAD cases from Olmsted County, MN, USA (mean age 71.2 years, 44% female) from 1 January 1998 through 31 December 2011 who were followed until 2014. Two age- and sex-matched controls (n = 3596) were identified for each case. ICD-9 codes were used to ascertain the primary reasons for hospitalization. Patients were censored at death or last follow-up. The most frequent reasons for hospitalization were non-cardiovascular: 68% of 8706 hospitalizations in cases and 78% of 8005 hospitalizations in controls. A total of 1533 (85%) cases and 2286 (64%) controls (p < 0.001) were hospitalized at least once; 1262 (70%) cases and 1588 (44%) controls (p < 0.001) ≥ two times. In adjusted models, age, prior hospitalization and comorbid conditions were independently associated with increased risk of recurrent hospitalizations in both groups. In cases, severe PAD (ankle–brachial index < 0.5) (HR: 1.25; 95% CI: 1.15, 1.36) and poorly compressible arteries (HR: 1.26; 95% CI: 1.16, 1.38) were each associated with increased risk for recurrent hospitalization. We demonstrate an increased rate of hospitalization in community-based patients with PAD and identify predictors of recurrent hospitalizations. These observations may inform strategies to reduce the burden of hospitalization of PAD patients
Discordant Diagnosis of Lower Extremity Peripheral Artery Disease Using American Heart Association Postexercise Guidelines( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract Abstract To determine whether postexercise criteria for peripheral artery disease (PAD) diagnosis recommended by the American Heart Association (AHA) identifies the same group of PAD patients. Diagnosis of PAD is performed using ankle-brachial index at rest (resting-ABI). When resting-ABI is not contributive, an AHA scientific statement recommend to use 1 of 2 following criteria: a postexercise ABI decrease of greater than 20% or a postexercise ankle pressure decrease of greater than 30 mm Hg. Between 1996 and 2012, 31, 663 consecutive patients underwent lower-extremity arterial study at Mayo Clinic. Among them, only unique patients who had exercise treadmill testing were analyzed. In this retrospective analysis, resting-ABI, postexercise ABI, and postexercise decrease of ankle pressure measured at 1-minute were measured in each patient. We conducted an analysis of agreement between postexercise criteria expressing the agreement separately for the positive and the negative ratings. Twelve thousand three hundred twelve consecutive patients were studied with a mean age of 67 ± 12 years, 61% male. According to resting-ABI, 4317 (35%) patients had PAD. In the whole population, if a clinician diagnoses "PAD" with 1 postexercise criterion, the probability that other clinicians would also diagnose "PAD" is 74.3%. If a clinician diagnoses "no PAD", the probability that other clinicians would also diagnose "no PAD" is 82.4%. In the patients to be of potential benefit from treadmill test when the resting-ABI > 0.90, if a clinician diagnoses "PAD" with 1 postexercise criterion, the probability that other clinicians would also diagnose "PAD" is 58.4% whereas if a clinician diagnoses "no PAD, " the probability that other clinicians would also diagnose "no PAD" is 87.5%. Postexercise criteria do not identify the same group of PAD patients. In our opinion, postexercise criteria to define PAD deserve additional study
