Adrenocortical suppression and recovery after continuous hypnotic infusion: etomidate versus its soft analogue cyclopropyl-methoxycarbonyl metomidate
Rile Ge, Ervin Pejo, Joseph F Cotten, Douglas E Raines
Critical Care , 2013, DOI: 10.1186/cc12494
Abstract: Dexamethasone-suppressed rats were randomized into an etomidate group, CPMM group, or control group. Rats in the etomidate and CPMM groups received 120-minute continuous infusions of etomidate or CPMM, respectively. Rats in the control group received neither hypnotic. In the first study, adrenocortical function during hypnotic infusion was assessed by administering adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) 90 minutes after the start of the hypnotic infusion and measuring plasma corticosterone concentrations at the end of the infusion 30 minutes later. In the second study, adrenocortical recovery following hypnotic infusion was assessed by administering ACTH every 30 minutes after infusion termination and measuring plasma corticosterone concentrations 30 minutes after each ACTH dose.During hypnotic infusion, ACTH-stimulated serum corticosterone concentrations were significantly lower in the CPMM and etomidate groups than in the control group (100 +/- 64 ng/ml and 33 +/- 32 ng/ml versus 615 +/- 265 ng/ml, respectively). After hypnotic infusion, ACTH-stimulated serum corticosterone concentrations recovered to control values within 30 minutes in the CPMM group but remained suppressed relative to those in the control group for more than 3 hours in the etomidate group.Both CPMM and etomidate suppress adrenocortical function during continuous infusion. However, recovery occurs significantly more rapidly following infusion of CPMM.
Rural nurses’ perceptions of a volunteer program in an acute setting: Volunteers delivering person-centred care for patients with dementia and delirium  [PDF]
Kaye Ervin, Sharon Moore
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2014.41005
Abstract:

Community volunteers were recruited and trained to deliver person-centred care to patients with dementia or delirium in an acute hospital setting, in a small rural Australian hospital. The volunteer program was grounded in action research methodology, and modelled on a previous research project. As a form of evaluation, interviews were conducted with nursing staff eight weeks after implementation of the volunteer program to explore their opinions. Data were analysed through a collaborative process and findings revealed strong benefits from the perspectives of the nursing staff. These benefits included overall improved patient care and improved time management for nursing tasks.

The Pleiotropism of Nerve Growth Factor Sensorial Pathway: Supplemental Growth Stimuli Could be Required During Danger Signalization Like a Surviving “Proclaim”
Ervin ?. Mingomataj
Iranian Journal of Medical Hypotheses & Ideas , 2008,
Abstract: Nerve growth factor (NGF) is the founder-member of neurotrophins family that provides growth and surviving effect not only for neuronal tissue but also for various non-neuronal cellular populations. It effectuates its physiologic or pathologic functions in sensorial neuronal system and some certain tissues through NGF-receptors such as tyrosinkinase A and p75, involving also transient receptor potential vanilloid 1, substance P and its receptor NK1 (members of NGF-pathways - NGFP). In different situations, such as stress-related or inflammatory pathologies (including allergy, asthma, depression, multiple chemical sensivity, stressful or dangerous events, etc), are reported elevated local and serologic concentrations of these mediators. Reflecting on the pleiotropic effects of mentioned substances, it could be suggested that over-regulation of NGFP mediators is generally required during identification of somatic or psycho-emotional integrity threatening like a surviving proclaim. In this context, the identification of a danger may induce NGFP-mediated growth stimuli to assure better surviving possibilities for the organism, maybe as a compensatory effect. Experiments in knockout animals with regards to genes of NGFP mediators could be helpful for the verification of its role as leader of information in the mentioned processes. Some investigations in such animals have demonstrated their abnormal passivity to fight for vital demands, whereas the behavior of subjects with down-regulation of aforementioned factors is associated with sensory or cognitive disorders such as congenital insensivity for pain with anhidrosis, schizophrenia, diabetes, or self-mutilatory behaviors. The last mentioned facts manifest the inability to recognize the situation of bodily and mental integrity during the NGFP insufficiency, leading to the necessity for further pharmacologic investigations with regards to NGFP mediators in the related pathologies.
Paul’s Understanding of the Church in the Epistle of Ephesians as a Model for Today’s Church
Ervin Budiseli?
Kairos : Evangelical Journal of Theology , 2012,
Abstract: This article analyzes Paul’s view of the church in the epistle of Ephesians and how this view should affect the life and work of the churches that have a Reformation background in Croatia. In the first part of the article, the author points out some problems that are present among such churches, like the negligence of the catholic or universal dimension of the church, an inadequate understanding God’s purposes and intentions that God has for his church, an inadequate understanding of the scope that Jesus’ sacrifice has on the life of a believer, and finally, an inadequate view of the relationship between salvation and membership in the church. Therefore, the author offers theological corrections in those areas. In the second part of the article, the author offers guidelines and implications that should surface from the proper theological understanding of the church that Paul presents in Ephesians. These implications refer to church growth, proper relationships with individuals who are gifted with various gifts and ministries, rejection of the mentality “Jesus – Bible and I” and the need for the development of unity and fellowship among the churches.
Critical Reflection on the Parables of the Leaven and the Mustard Seed as Foundational for Postmillennialist Eschatology
Ervin Budiseli?
Kairos : Evangelical Journal of Theology , 2010,
Abstract: This article analyzes one part of postmillennialist eschatology which claims that the kingdom of God before Christ’s second coming will be victorious in transforming every aspect of all societies of this world. Evil will not be completely destroyed, but Christian values and principles will be predominant. Some critics of postmillennialism think that support for such a view can only be found in the parables of the mustard seed and the leaven. Therefore, this article explores the meaning of parables and the history of their interpretation, and briefly analyzes the nature of the kingdom in an attempt to show the difference in interpretation of parables as allegories, metaphors and similes. The author’s position is that the parables of the mustard seed and the leaven are similes, and though they explicitly compare two elements (kingdom with the seed and kingdom with the leaven), the key to their correct interpretation is to realize that each parable as a whole reveals something about the nature of the kingdom and not just one point of identification or some detail.
Impact of the Formation of the New Testament Canon on the Creed of Sola Scriptura
Ervin Budiseli?
Kairos : Evangelical Journal of Theology , 2011,
Abstract: The purpose of this article is to evaluate and test the creed of sola scriptura against the historical and theological implications of the several-centurieslong process of the formation of the NT canon. As a result of all this, the author thinks that sola scriptura can be affirmed in some aspects, but in others it must be revised and changed. Historically speaking, sola scriptura accepts only twenty-seven NT canonical books (along with the OT) as the ultimate authority for the church’s life and faith. However, since the term canon was not used for a closed list of the books from which nothing can be taken and nothing added until Athanasius in 367 AD, and since in the first four centuries, the term Scripture was applied more broadly than just to today’s twenty-seven NT canonical books, it cannot be claimed that sola scriptura is the original teaching of the early church. Accordingly, if Protestantism continues to claim sola scriptura as the historical and original teaching of the church, then for the sake of historical correctness, it must either include more books as ultimately authoritative Scriptures than just today’s twenty-seven NT books, or not claim sola scriptura until the time of Athanasius. Theologically speaking, the author argues that the NT canon was not the ultimate authority for the life and faith of the early church. Instead, the author suggests that the ultimate authority for the early church was the gospel message that was proclaimed by Jesus and which continued to be proclaimed by the church in oral and eventually in written form. Accordingly, the NT documents were recognized as authoritative primarily because they testified about the Jesus event and contained a written record of the gospel that was proclaimed by Jesus and the apostles, and not because they were inspired by God. Instead of focusing on the precise meaning and definitions of terms like Scripture and canon, the author suggests that focus should be placed on how much and in what measure these writings/books were used, that is, to make distinction between three categories/classes of writings (based on how often they were cited) and three stages through which these writings were cited (in the first, second, third, and fourth centuries).
The Impartation of the Gifts of the Spirit in Paul’s Theology
Ervin Budiseli?
Kairos : Evangelical Journal of Theology , 2011,
Abstract: This article analyzes an idea that the gifts of the Spirit can be imparted from one person to another person based on Romans 1:11 and 1Timothy 4:14. The author’s thesis is that such a theology is unbiblical because it does not recognize the distinction between the gifts of the Spirit and spiritual gifts, and claims that the gifts of the Spirit can be imparted from one person to another. Also, the doctrine and practice of impartation violates the Reformation’s teaching about the priesthood of all believers because believers are encouraged to rely on people and not on God in order to receive something from God. In this way, particularly gifted individuals in the church are no longer intercessors or vessels which God uses to work in the lives of other people, but they are elevated to the position of mediators which actually reflects the Roman Catholic doctrine about saints and priests as mediators between God and people.

New Apostolic Reformation: Apostolic Ministry for Today
Ervin Budiseli?
Kairos : Evangelical Journal of Theology , 2008,
Abstract: This article analyzes the idea of Peter Wagner, the main representative of the New Apostolic Reformation, that apostles should and must govern local church congregations. The support for this claim is based primarily on Ephesians 2:20 where Paul said that the church is “built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets.” The question then is, whether people with the gift of apostolic ministry represent that foundation or the foundation is the apostolic teaching itself. Closely connected with this is the question whether the apostolic ministry/office continues today or not. The first part of the article analyzes the reasons for the occurrence of this idea in Wagner’s theology and the ultimate goals of the NAR movement. In the second part, it analyzes the biblical understanding of the apostolic ministry which is common for NAR theologians, and finally, compares these ideas with traditional ideas about apostolic ministry in Christianity. The author argues that while apostolic ministry in the Body of Christ continues even today and should be recognized as an office, the authority of apostles should be influential and spiritual, not governmental and hierarchical.
