Effectiveness of Holistic Interventions for People with Severe Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: Systematic Review of Controlled Clinical Trials
Ulugbek Nurmatov, Susan Buckingham, Marilyn Kendall, Scott A. Murray, Patrick White, Aziz Sheikh, Hilary Pinnock
PLOS ONE , 2012, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0046433
Abstract: Background Despite a well-recognised burden of disabling physical symptoms compounded by co-morbidities, psychological distress and social isolation, the needs of people with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are typically poorly addressed. Aim To assess the effectiveness of interventions designed to deliver holistic care for people with severe COPD. Methods We searched 11 biomedical databases, three trial repositories (January 1990-March 2012; no language restrictions) and contacted international experts to locate published, unpublished and in-progress randomised controlled trials (RCTs), quasi-RCTs and controlled clinical trials (CCTs) that investigated holistic interventions to support patients with severe COPD in any healthcare context. The primary outcome was health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Quality assessment and data extraction followed Cochrane Collaboration methodology. We used a piloted data extraction sheet and undertook narrative synthesis. Results From 2,866 potentially relevant papers, we identified three trials: two RCTs (from United States and Australia), and one CCT (from Thailand): total 216 patients. Risk of bias was assessed as moderate in two studies and high in the third. All the interventions were led by nurses acting in a co-ordinating role (e.g. facilitating community support in Thailand, providing case-management in the USA, or co-ordinating inpatient care in Australia). HRQoL improved significantly in the Thai CCT compared to the (very limited) usual care (p<0.001), in two sub-domains in the American trial, but showed no significant changes in the Australian trial. Exercise tolerance, dyspnoea, and satisfaction with care also improved in the Thai trial. Conclusions Some 15 years after reports first highlighted the unmet needs of people with severe COPD, we have been unable to find robust trial evidence about interventions that can address those needs. There is an urgent need to develop and evaluate holistic care interventions designed improve HRQoL for people with severe COPD. Systematic Review Registration PROSPERO (CRD42012002430).

Abstract: Background Telehealthcare involves the use of information and communication technologies to deliver healthcare at a distance and to support patient self-management through remote monitoring and personalised feedback. It is timely to scrutinise the evidence regarding the benefits, risks and costs of telehealthcare. Methods and Findings Two reviewers searched for relevant systematic reviews published from January 1997 to November 2011 in: The Cochrane Library, MEDLINE, EMBASE, LILACS, IndMed and PakMed. Reviewers undertook independent quality assessment of studies using the Critical Appraisal Skills Programme (CASP) tool for systematic reviews. 1,782 review articles were identified, from which 80 systematic reviews were selected for inclusion. These covered a range of telehealthcare models involving both synchronous (live) and asynchronous (store-and-forward) interactions between provider and patients. Many studies showed no differences in outcomes between telehealthcare and usual care. Several reviews highlighted the large number of short-term (<12 months) feasibility studies with under 20 participants. Effects of telehealthcare on health service indicators were reported in several reviews, particularly reduced hospitalisations. The reported clinical effectiveness of telehealthcare interventions for patients with long-term conditions appeared to be greatest in those with more severe disease at high-risk of hospitalisation and death. The failure of many studies to adequately describe the intervention makes it difficult to disentangle the contributions of technological and human/organisational factors on the outcomes reported. Evidence on the cost-effectiveness of telehealthcare remains sparse. Patient safety considerations were absent from the evaluative telehealthcare literature. Conclusions Policymakers and planners need to be aware that investment in telehealthcare will not inevitably yield clinical or economic benefits. It is likely that the greatest gains will be achieved for patients at highest risk of serious outcomes. There is a need for longer-term studies in order to determine whether the benefits demonstrated in time limited trials are sustained.
Neutron star structure in an in-medium modified chiral soliton model

Physics , 2015, DOI: 10.1016/j.physletb.2015.08.035
Abstract: We study the internal structure of a static and spherically symmetric neutron star in the framework of an in-medium modified chiral soliton model. The Equations of State describing an infinite and asymmetric nuclear matter are obtained introducing the density dependent functions into the low energy free space Lagrangian of the model starting from the phenomenology of pionic atoms. The parametrizations of density dependent functions are related to the properties of isospin asymmetric nuclear systems at saturation density of symmetric nuclear matter $\rho_0\simeq 0.16$~fm$^{-3}$. Our results, corresponding to the compressibility of symmetric nuclear matter in the range $250\,\mbox{MeV}\le K_0\le 270\,\mbox{MeV}$ and the slop parameter value of symmetry energy in the range $30\,\mbox{MeV}\le L_S\le 50\,\mbox{MeV}$, are consistent with the results from other approaches and with the experimental indications. Using the modified Equations of State, near the saturation density of symmetric nuclear matter $\rho_0$, the extrapolations to the high density and highly isospin asymmetric regions have been performed. The calculations showed that the properties of $\sim 1.4M_\odot$ and $\sim 2M_\odot$ neutron stars can be well reproduced in the framework of present approach.

Journal of Electronics Cooling and Thermal Control (JECTC) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jectc.2016.62008
Abstract: This paper presents a set of parametric studies of heat dissipation performed on automotive radiators. The work’s first step consists of designing five radiators with different fin pitch wave distance (P = 2.5, 2.4, 2.3, 2.2, 2.1 mm). Then, we proceed to the fabrication of our five samples. The purpose of this work is to determine through our experiment’s results which one have the best cooling performance. This numerical tool has been previously verified and validated using a wide experimental data bank. The analysis focuses on the cooling performance for automobile radiator by changing several dimensions of the radiator fin phase as well as the importance of coolant flow lay-out on the radiator global performance. This experience has been performed at Hubei Radiatech Auto Cooling System Co., Ltd. For the cooling performance experience, we use JB2293-1978 Wind Tunnel Test Method for Automobile and Tractor Radiators. The test bench system is a continuous air suction type wind tunnel; collection and control of operating condition parameters can be done automatically by the computer via the preset program, and also can be done by the user manually. The results show that the more we increase the fin phase, the better the cooling performance will be and we also save material so the product cost will be cheaper.
Parallel proximal methods for total variation minimization
Ulugbek S. Kamilov
Mathematics , 2015,
Abstract: Total variation (TV) is a widely used regularizer for stabilizing the solution of ill-posed inverse problems. In this paper, we propose a novel proximal-gradient algorithm for minimizing TV regularized least-squares cost functional. Our method replaces the standard proximal step of TV by a simpler alternative that computes several independent proximals. We prove that the proposed parallel proximal method converges to the TV solution, while requiring no sub-iterations. The results in this paper could enhance the applicability of TV for solving very large scale imaging inverse problems.

The temperature dependence of the density of energy states in semiconductors is considered. With the help of mathematical modeling of the thermal broadening of the energy levels, the temperature dependence of the band gap of semiconductors is studied. In view of the non-parabolic and the temperature dependence of the effective mass of the density of states in the allowed bands, graphs of temperature dependence of the band gap are obtained. The theoretical results of mathematical modeling are compared with experimental data for Si, InAs and solid solutions of p-Bi2-xSbxTe3-ySey. The theoretical results satisfactorily explain the experimental results for Si and InAs. The new approach is investigated by the temperature dependence of the band gap of semiconductors.

Learning optimal nonlinearities for iterative thresholding algorithms
Ulugbek S. Kamilov,Hassan Mansour
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: Iterative shrinkage/thresholding algorithm (ISTA) is a well-studied method for finding sparse solutions to ill-posed inverse problems. In this letter, we present a data-driven scheme for learning optimal thresholding functions for ISTA. The proposed scheme is obtained by relating iterations of ISTA to layers of a simple deep neural network (DNN) and developing a corresponding error backpropagation algorithm that allows to fine-tune the thresholding functions. Simulations on sparse statistical signals illustrate potential gains in estimation quality due to the proposed data adaptive ISTA.
Transverse charge densities in the nucleon in nuclear matter
Yakhshiev, Ulugbek;Kim, Hyun-Chul
High Energy Physics - Phenomenology , 2013,
Abstract: We investigated the transverse charge densities in the nucleon in nuclear matter within the framework of the in-medium modified Skyrme model. The medium modification of the nucleon electromagnetic form factors are first discussed. The results show that the form factors in nuclear matter fall off faster than those in free space, as the momentum transfer increases. As a result, the charge radii of the nucleon become larger, as the nuclear matter density increases. The transverse charge densities in the nucleon indicate that the size of the nucleon tends to bulge out in nuclear matter. This salient feature of the swelling is more clearly observed in the neutron case. When the proton is transversely polarized, the transverse charge densities exhibit the distortion due to the effects of the magnetization.

Yakhshiev Ulugbek,Kim Hyun-Chul
EPJ Web of Conferences , 2012, DOI: 10.1051/epjconf/20122004005
Abstract: We present recent investigations on the properties of nucleons in nuclear matter and, in particular, nucleon electromagnetic form factors in the framework of the in-medium modified Skyrme model. Medium modifications are achieved by introducing the pion-nucleus optical potential for the pion fields in nuclear environment. In order to reproduce the bulk matter properties, the parametrization of the Skyrme term in the nuclear matter has been adjusted and the sensitivity of results to the pion-nucleus optical potential parameters are discussed.
