How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

The Diagonal Line Rule (DLR) is an educational pattern recognition tool for the classification of 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECGs) as normal or abnormal. To develop a score using the DLR for the risk stratification of abnormal ECGs. Patients at the Palo Alto, VA, referred for a routine resting ECG between 1987 and 1999 were retrospectively conside...
Current guidelines for interpretation of the ECGs of athletes recommend that isolated R and S wave amplitudes that exceed traditional criteria for left ventricular hypertrophy be accepted as a physiological response to exercise training. This is based on training and echocardiographic studies but not on long term follow up. Demonstration of the pro...
Objectives: With diminishing time afforded to electrocardiography in the medical curriculum, we have found Sibbitt's simple mnemonic, the Diagonal Line Lead Rule, for a pattern recognition approach to 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) interpretation to be appreciated by students. However, it still lacks universal acceptance because its clinical util...
Methicillin- and vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA & VRSA) infections are growing global health concerns. Structure-activity-relationships of phenylthiazoles as a new antimicrobial class have been addressed. We present 10 thiazole derivatives that exhibit strong activity against 18 clinical strains of MRSA and VRSA with acceptable PK...
The study of J waves and slurs and their association with cardiovascular death is clouded by the lack of a standardized coding or classification methodology. Over the past three years of studying these ECG patterns, we have evolved a Data Entry Form that is designed to resolve some of the key issues. These issues include the effect of other ECG fin...
We investigated the capability of antisense peptide nucleic acids (PNAs) conjugated to the (KFF)3K cell-penetrating peptide to target possible essential genes (ligA, rpoA, rpoD, engA, tsf, and kdtA) in Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium and inhibit bacterial growth in vitro and in cell culture. All targeted PNA-based gene inhibition has shown...
