10-week reading intervention improves brain activity in autistic children Ten weeks of intensive reading intervention for kids with autism spectrum disorder was enough to strengthen the activity of loosely linked regions of their brains that work together to comprehend reading, University of Alabama at Birmingham researchers have found. At the same time, the reading comprehension of these 13 children, whose typical age group was 10.9 years, also improved . This study is the first to do reading intervention with ASD kids using brain imaging techniques, and the findings reflect the plasticity of the mind, stated Rajesh Kana, Ph.D., associate professor of psychology in the UAB College of Sciences and Arts and the senior author upon this paper.

For the Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium Investigators: A Trial of an Impedance Threshold Device in Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest Standard cardiopulmonary resuscitation , defined as manual upper body compressions with rescue inhaling and exhaling, could be lifesaving but provides only a relatively small fraction of normal cardiac output, even when performed correctly.1,2 One proposed technique to augment cardiac output during CPR is the use of an impedance threshold device .3-5 The ITD is made to enhance venous return and cardiac output during CPR by increasing the degree of negative intrathoracic pressure .
