Oppewal, Alyt; Schoufour, Josje D.; van der Maarl, Hanne J. K.; Evenhuis, Heleen M.; Hilgenkamp, Thessa I. M.; Festen, Dederieke A. – American Journal on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, 2018
We aim to provide insight into the cause-specific mortality of older adults with intellectual disability (ID), with and without Down syndrome (DS), and compare this to the general population. Immediate and primary cause of death were collected through medical files of 1,050 older adults with ID, 5 years after the start of the Healthy Ageing and…

Sundarrajan, Anusha; Huber, Jessica E.; Sivasankar, M. Preeti – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2017
Purpose: The objective of the current study was to investigate the effects of age and vocal loading on the respiratory and laryngeal systems. Method: Fourteen younger (M = 20 years) and 13 older (M = 75 years) healthy individuals participated in a 40-min vocal loading challenge in the presence of 70-dB background noise. Respiratory kinematic and…

Chih, Yu-Chun; Stierwalt, Julie A. G.; LaPointe, Leonard L.; Chih, Yu-Pin – Communication Disorders Quarterly, 2017
Physiological activities (heart rate and respiratory rate) during a word retrieval task were measured in normal participants. Word frequency demonstrated a significant effect on naming accuracy and latencies but not on physiological activities. These data will serve as a basis for comparison for individuals with a compromised language system.

Bhaskar, Anand; Subramani, Selvam; Ojha, Rajdeep – Advances in Physiology Education, 2013
An article by Belusic and Zupancic described the construction of a finger pulse sensor using a singing greeting card beeper. These authors felt that this beeper made of piezoelectric material could be easily modified to function as a respiratory belt transducer to monitor respiratory movements. Commercially available respiratory belt transducers,…

Hailstone, Jono; Kilding, Andrew E. – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2011
The Zephyr[TM] BioHarness[TM] (Zephyr Technology, Auckland, New Zealand) is a wireless physiological monitoring system that has the ability to measure respiratory rate unobtrusively. However, the ability of the BioHarness[TM] to accurately and reproducibly determine respiratory rate across a range of intensities is currently unknown. The aim of…

Ochs, Raymond – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Understanding redox reactions in biochemistry requires a clear grasp of three definitions: electron exchange, oxidation number, and oxygen atom insertion. Here, the electrochemical cell is explained for redox-active ions, introducing a new comparison between the measurement of midpoint potential and the measurement of initial velocity for enzymes.…
