Disease relevance of Health Surveys


Psychiatry related information on Health Surveys


High impact information on Health Surveys

  • HRQOL was measured with established instruments (the RAND 12-Item Short-Form Health Survey and a validated short form of the University of California Los Angeles Prostate Cancer Index) that addressed impairment in the physical, mental, urinary, bowel, and sexual domains [11].
  • METHODS: Twenty-eight subjects completed the following self-report questionnaires: HAP, Modified Health Assessment Questionnaire, Medical Outcomes Study 36-Item Short Form Health Survey, and Arthritis Impact Measurement Scale 2 [12].
  • We analyzed data from the 1992 Singapore National Health Survey with the objective of defining the clinical and metabolic parameters associated with isolated low HDL cholesterol [13].
  • There were highly significant differences in the initial health survey between the fatty acid composition in serum in subjects who remained normoglycemic (n = 1,753) and in those who later developed NIDDM (n = 75) [14].
  • METHODS: Serum thyrotropin and free thyroxine concentrations were measured in 2108 archived serum samples from a 1981 community health survey in Busselton, Western Australia (Busselton Health Study) [15].

Anatomical context of Health Surveys


Associations of Health Surveys with chemical compounds

  • The effects of modafinil were evaluated using the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HAM-D), the Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS), the Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS), the Clinical Global Impression of Change (CGI-C), and the Medical Outcomes Study 36-Item Short-Form Health Survey (SF-36) [29].
  • At week 52 the sertraline plus exposure group and the sertraline-alone group had a significant deterioration on the 36-item Short Form Health Survey compared with exposure alone [30].
  • Determination of a trivariate reference region for free thyroxine index, free triiodothyronine index, and thyrotropin from results obtained in a health survey of middle-aged women [31].
  • Relationships of gender, sex hormone use, and age with lipoprotein cholesterol/triglyceride ratios in an adult population. The Pacific Northwest Bell Telephone Company health survey [32].
  • Data were obtained from five biennial cross-sectional household health surveys, with current use of postmenopausal estrogen determined by inspection of medication bottles [33].

Gene context of Health Surveys

  • CONCLUSION: Large-scale screening for HH can be performed at a relatively low cost if combined with a health survey programme [34].
  • Although quality-of-life information comparing thrombolytics is unavailable, most patients who received streptokinase or alteplase rated their quality of life as high on the basis of results from time trade-off assessments and health surveys [35].
  • METHODS: Adult patients (n = 150; 106 women and 44 men) with confirmed celiac disease were randomly selected from a computerized database of >350 patients, and were asked to complete a bowel questionnaire and the Short Form 36 Health Survey (SF-36) [36].
  • DESIGN: We assembled a 9-person expert panel of North American physicians familiar with the use of the Chronic Respiratory Questionnaire (CRQ), a disease-specific HRQoL measure, or the generic Medical Outcomes Study Short-Form 36-Item Health Survey (SF-36, Version 2.0) among patients with COPD [37].
  • METHODS: DNA samples from the German centres of the European Community Respiratory Health Survey were analysed for genetic variants in the IL1RA gene and the development of asthma, atopy and bronchial hyperreactivity [38].
