Étude des impacts de la ventilation sur la qualité de l'air intérieur et la santé respiratoire des enfants asthmatiques dans les habitations (Projet IVAIRE) by P Lajoie( )

3 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in French and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les objectifs du projet de recherche Impact de la Ventilation sur l'Air Intérieur et la Respiration des Enfants asthmatiques dans les habitations (IVAIRE) étaient d'évaluer l'impact de la ventilation sur la qualité de l'air intérieur et la fréquence des symptômes respiratoires chez des enfants asthmatiques d'habitations unifamiliales. Le projet s'est déroulé en deux phases d'une durée d'un an chacune : la phase préintervention (phase I), qui a permis de réaliser une étude descriptive de l'ensemble des participants recrutés et de sélectionner les participants admissibles à l'étude randomisée portant sur l'amélioration de la ventilation, et la phase postintervention (phase II), au cours de laquelle on a effectué le suivi des participants de l'étude randomisée
Prévention du diabète de type 2 chez les femmes avec un antécédent de diabète gestationnel : étude d'outils de dépistage et de mesures préventives by Véronique Gingras( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les femmes avec un antécédent de diabète gestationnel (DbG) présentent un risque accru de diabète de type 2 (DbT2). Cependant, après leur grossesse, une proportion importante de ces femmes n'adopte pas un mode de vie sain et leur suivi médical est inadéquat. L'objectif de ce mémoire visait d'une part à identifier un outil de dépistage postgrossesse efficace pour détecter les anomalies du métabolisme du glucose chez ces femmes et d'autre part à qualifier leur mode de vie en période postgrossesse et la relation avec les complications métaboliques associées au DbT2. Les résultats démontrent qu'en période postgrossesse, la combinaison de l'hémoglobine A1C et de la circonférence de la taille représente un test sensible pour dépister les anomalies du métabolisme du glucose chez ces femmes. De plus, la majorité de ces femmes n'adopte pas les mesures préventives recommandées et présentent des profils anthropométriques et métaboliques altérés comparativement à celles qui les adoptent

Projet IVAIRE : appréciation du rapport des visites environnementales et suivi des retombées auprès des participants by Marie-Christine Gervais( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le projet de recherche IVAIRE visait à évaluer l'impact de la ventilation sur la qualité de l'air intérieur et sur la fréquence de symptômes respiratoires chez des enfants asthmatiques vivant dans des habitations unifamiliales. Dans le cadre de cette étude randomisée réalisée entre 2008 et 2012, 83 enfants vivant dans des habitations où le taux de ventilation était faible, ont été répartis au hasard entre un groupe intervention et un groupe témoin. L'intervention pour améliorer la ventilation dans les maisons du groupe intervention a consisté à l'installation d'un système de ventilation mécanique ou à l'optimisation du système existant. Des visites environnementales étaient effectuées dans les résidences. À la fin du projet IVAIRE, un rapport incluant divers paramètres mesurés dans les résidences, des informations de base sur les contaminants et les recommandations pertinentes s'y rapportant a été transmis à chacun des participants. Des évaluations visant à évaluer le degré d'appréciation du rapport, à documenter les perceptions de la qualité de l'air intérieur de la résidence ainsi que les modifications comportementales et environnementales survenues trois ans à la suite de l'intervention ont été menées par téléphone et par sondage en ligne

Equivalence of unproctored internet testing and proctored paper-and-pencil testing of the Big Five( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: The use of unproctored Internet-based testing (IBT) for personality assessment is increasingly popular, especially in personnel selection. Previous studies on its equivalence to traditional proctored paper-and-pencil testing (PPT) have used between-subjects designs, which makes it difficult to separate intergroup effects from format effects, and have shown mixed results. The aim of the present study was to assess the quantitative, qualitative, and auxiliary equivalence of unproctored IBT and proctored PPT of personality, using a within-sample design. Undergraduate students (n = 407) completed both an Internet and a paper-and-pencil version of a measure of the Big Five, with a 1 to 3 week interval. The proctored paper-and-pencil assessment was completed in class and the unproctored Internet assessment was completed at the time and place chosen by the participants. Results showed effect sizes for mean differences to vary from null to small. Skewness and kurtosis indices, reliability coefficients, intercorrelations magnitudes, as well as factor solutions, were highly similar across formats. Respondents did not prefer IBT over PPT on a series of statement about their perceptions and reactions to IBT. In conclusion, results suggest that IBT and PPT of the Big Five personality traits are equivalent, and that the data obtained are comparable across formats

Optimisation du contrôle glycémique des patients atteints de diabète de type 1 : traitement efficace des hypoglycémies, calcul des glucides et pancréas artificiel by Véronique Gingras( )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Optimal glucose control is essential to reduce the risk of diabetes-related complications. Yet, a large proportion of patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D) struggles to achieve glycated hemoglobin (A1c) targets and a high frequency of hypoglycemia events is still observed. We believe simplification of meal glucose control as well as efficient treatment of hypoglycemia have the potential to improve glucose control in T1D. We showed that a large proportion of patients report being confident in applying carbohydrate counting for meal bolus calculation; yet, many specific difficulties were encountered by patients. The use of available technologies for carbohydrate counting by participants appears to be uncommon despite a favorable perception and interest towards such technology. Closed-loop automated insulin delivery systems, also called "artificial pancreas (AP)", is a technology by which insulin infusion rates from the continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII; insulin pump) are regulated based on algorithm-generated recommendations relying on continuous glucose monitoring systems readings. The AP improves glucose control considerably in patients with T1D, but prandial glucose control remains a significant challenge. We have developed a simplified meal bolus strategy combined with the AP. In this strategy, patients choose a meal category based on a semi-quantitative carbohydrate assessment (e.g. a regular meal = 30 to 60 g of carbohydrates). In controlled conditions using a dual-hormone AP (insulin and glucagon), this strategy yielded adequate postprandial glucose control, except for very large carbohydrate content meals (> 90 g). After adding a meal category, this strategy was tested in uncontrolled conditions. Glucose control with the simplified strategy was comparable to what was seen with precise carbohydrate counting. However, a higher frequency of hypoglycemia events was observed which led to modifications to the algorithm. We finally showed the safety of this simplified strategy in the context of misclassification of the meals. We also found a low adherence to guidelines for self-treatment of mild to moderate hypoglycemia. The average treatment observed for hypoglycemia was twice the recommended quantity of carbohydrates. On the other hand, we showed that 16 to 21 grams of carbohydrates is insufficient to treat, in a 15-min delay, a significant proportion of hypoglycemia episodes in T1D patients treated with insulin pump. In conclusion, patients encounter several difficulties associated with carbohydrate counting and the AP represents a promising therapy to alleviate some of the carbohydrate counting burden. A simplified prandial bolus based on meal categorization could simplify carbohydrate counting while preserving adequate glycemic control. In addition, a large proportion of patients with T1D do not follow recommendations for treatment of hypoglycemia episodes, which could be partly explained by the lack of efficacy of this treatment in a large subgroup of patients
