This monograph reproduces, under the name of The Q-Codes: General Practice / Family Medicine Multilingual Terminology, the list of Q-Codes and their definitions. The Q-Codes are a classification of non-clinical items in General Practice / Family Medicine (GP/FM). This list is in an ontology-ready format, and made available at www.hetop.eu/Q by the Laboratory of Bioinformatics, University of Rouen, France. The Q-Codes, whose classification is complementary to ICPC-2, are part of the 3CGP project and are intended to retrieve the main organizational concepts in GP/FM. 3CGP is an acronym for “Core Content Classification in Primary Care.” The 3CGP project joins ICPC-2 and Q-Codes to create a new ontology to improve the indexing of grey literature in GP/FM. This monograph contains an explanation of the process of elaboration of the taxonomy, a tabular list of the Q-Codes, the list of their definitions and an index. [less ▲]

In the Tunisian south, the heated greenhouses are an important axis of development of agriculture thanks to the big geothermal potential of this zone. Currently, this sector suffers from several phytosanitary problems. In the last years, a new insect, Tuta absoluta, threaten the cultures of cultivated tomatoes in heated greenhouses. To improve control of T. absoluta, the effectiveness of pheromone traps (associated or not with a source of light) and luminous traps (associated or not with water, with limed buckets for limed covers) were compared. The results show that the traps with pheromones significantly catch more adults of T. absoluta compared to all the other types of traps (average number of trapped adults of T. absoluta = 73.4 (± 142)). The luminous traps associated with water, with limed buckets as with limed covers show, as for them, an intermediate effectiveness. In spite of this slightly less effectiveness, the luminous traps have the advantage of low costs of production as well as the advantage of simultaneously capturing males and females of T. absoluta.

Continuous-flow micro- and mesofluidic reactors come with inherent properties that can be advantageously utilized for expanding the horizon of preparative chemistry. Accurate control over local process parameters, even under extreme conditions, inherent safety, production homogeneity and seamless scale-up are amongst the most important assets of continuous-flow chemistry. Besides, flow chemistry enables the design of efficient multistep processes with significantly reduced footprints. In this note, we discuss some of the most fascinating aspects of continuous-flow micro- and mesofluidic reactors in the specific context of preparative organic chemistry. [less ▲]

Insects, particularly those belonging to the family Acrididae (grasshoppers), are commonly consumed as human food in many parts of the world. Grasshoppers of the species Chorthippus parallelus are abundantly found throughout Europe. However, these insects were not consumed by Europeans till now, but could possibly be used as human food, which is why we investigated their chemical composition. We found that they contain high level of proteins (69%), with an excellent amino acid profile and protein digestibility (97%). Furthermore, specimens of C. parallelus have an interesting fatty acids profile and minerals composition. Preliminary toxicity assessment indicates that these insects do not exhibit toxicity towards neutrophil cells (white blood cells). These data suggest that C. parallelus could be considered for human consumption. Rearing trials done during the study show that commercial rearing could be developed to produce sufficient biomass for sustaining human consumption. [less ▲]

Less invasive surfactant therapies (LIST) use surfactant instillation through a thin tracheal catheter in spontaneously breathing infants. This review and meta-analysis investigates respiratory outcomes for preterm infants with respiratory distress syndrome treated with LIST rather than administration of surfactant through an endotracheal tube. Randomised controlled trial (RCT) full texts provided outcome data for bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), death or BPD, early CPAP failure, invasive ventilation requirements and usual neonatal morbidities. Relative risks (RR) from pooled data, with subgroup analyses, were obtained from a Mantel-Haenszel analysis using a random effect model. Six RCTs evaluated LIST: 4 vs InSurE and 1 each vs delayed or immediate intubation for surfactant. LIST resulted in decreased risks of BPD (RR = 0.71 [0.52-0.99]; NNT = 21), death or BPD (RR = 0.74 [0.58-0.94]; NNT = 15) and early CPAP failure or invasive ventilation requirements (RR = 0.67 [0.53-0.84]; NNT = 8 and RR = 0.69 [0.53-0.88]; NNT = 6). Compared to InSurE, LIST decreased the risks of BPD or death (RR = 0.63 [0.44-0.92]; NNT = 11) and of early CPAP failure (RR = 0.71 [0.53-0.96]; NNT = 11). Common neonatal morbidities were not different. CONCLUSIONS: Respiratory management with LIST decreases the risks of BPD and BPD or death, and the need for invasive ventilation. This strategy appears safe, but long-term follow-up is lacking. WHAT IS KNOWN: • Initial management of preterm infants with CPAP decreases the risk of death or BPD, but many still require surfactant or invasive ventilation. • Surfactant can be instilled through a tracheal thin catheter while the infant breathes on CPAP, but improvement in BPD is inconsistent between studies. What is New: • Less invasive surfactant therapy (LIST) strategies decrease the risks of BPD, of death or BPD, and of CPAP failure compared to strategies where surfactant is administered through an endotracheal tube. • LIST strategies decrease the risks of the composite outcome of BPD or death and of early CPAP failure when compared to "intubation-surfactant-extubation" approaches.

It has recently become possible to monitor patients’ voices outside the speech therapist’s office with a portable, easy-to-use tool: the voice dosimeter. This tool measures voice frequency and sound pressure level, as well as the duration of phonation, during a full day of regular activities. In addition to voice accumulation in an ecological context, the dosimeter used in this study (VoxLog, Sonvox) gives patients feedback on their voice use. In practice, the clinician configures the device so that it provides a vibratory signal in real time when the patient speaks above or below a predetermined frequency or sound pressure threshold. The feedback is intended to make patients aware of inappropriate vocal behavior and encourage them to change it. In this case study, we used biofeedback with the aim of reducing sound pressure level for a teacher suffering from vocal fold nodules. Our goal was to determine whether vibrotactile biofeedback applied in an ecological context for three consecutive weeks could reduce excess sound pressure. The feedback was activated every time the teacher spoke too loudly; its purpose was to help her avoid vocal abuse and (re)learn healthy vocal behaviors. This preliminary study generated encouraging results regarding the use of biofeedback in voice treatment. Nevertheless, it is important to investigate how this tool can best be implemented for patient management in speech language pathology. In addition, the method should be validated with randomized studies using a larger sample. [less ▲]

Du fait de sa position stratégique entre l’Afrique du Nord et l’Afrique subsaharienne, le Niger est une terre d’intense mobilité par le départ et le transit de nombreux migrants dont le flux venait de tous les pays de l’Afrique de l’Ouest. Le contexte géopolitique actuellement dominé par l’insécurité dans la partie Est du pays et le nord du Nigeria voisin (guerre imposée par la nébuleuse Boko Haram) ; et l’instabilité des pays frontaliers à l’Ouest (Mali) et au Nord (Libye) poussent les populations à chercher refuge en migrant massivement (plus de 60% des migrants en direction du Maghreb et l’Europe passent par le Niger selon l’Organisation Internationale pour les Migrations) et irrégulièrement vers les grandes villes minières du nord du Niger (Agadez, Arlit, Djado et Dirkou) qui sont les portes d’accès au pays de l’Afrique du Nord et ensuite à la méditerranée afin d’atteindre les pays européens. A tous ces problèmes sécuritaires, s’ajoute le problème d’insécurité alimentaire et foncière qui oblige les populations rurales comme celles de la région de Tahoua à migrer pour un exode temporaire ou saisonnier qui finira par une migration de longue durée à force de prendre goût à l’aventure. Les ruraux qui font face aux déficits cycliques imposés par le changement climatique vont à la recherche du mieux-être et du complément alimentaire des ménages. Cet article traite de l’exode qui sera considéré comme une migration locale et en même temps une initiation à la migration régionale et intercontinentale. Il ressortira les impacts socio-économiques de l’exode agissant sur les ménages dans la région de Tahoua au Niger. [less ▲]

The formation of a global and complex episodic memory requires memory for single units of information of the target event but also binding these elements together. This binding capacity diminishes in healthy aging leading to a so-called associative memory deficit. Interestingly, when support is provided during encoding thanks to semantic prior-knowledge (e.g., semantically related word pairs), this associative deficit can be alleviated. The aim of the present review is to summarize the current literature about the influence of prior-knowledge on associative memory performance in healthy aging. Through an analysis of the procedures that have been used in associative memory studies, we suggest two factors that appear to modulate the impact of prior knowledge on older adults’ associative memory. First, the way word pairs are recombined from the encoding to the retrieval phase is the main factor that has to be taken into account. Conditions that promote recall-to-reject discrimination processes lead to similar performance in older compared to younger adults, whereas conditions that require recollection discrimination lead to an age-related decline. Second, the nature of the semantic relations involved in the prior-knowledge support may influence older adults’ performance by modulating the contribution of recollection and familiarity to recognition. Indeed, categorical semantic relations engage both recollection and familiarity-based discrimination, whereas thematic relations allow participants to rely on familiarity-based discrimination only. This latest observation is crucial when one considers recollection as a declining process, in contrast to familiarity, which remains spared in healthy aging. Therefore, future studies should explore the propensity of other semantic relations to alleviate the age-related associative memory decline. [less ▲]

Despite the increasing need to understand factors shaping community assembly, few studies have simultaneously explored the influence of niche-based and phylogenetic processes. Here, we investigate the relationships between diet, habitat and social behaviour in damselfishes (Pomacentridae) collected in 2014 at Moorea Island (17°30′S, 149°50′W), French Polynesia. Isotope ratios of carbon and nitrogen, in association with stomach contents, delineate three trophic groups: pelagic feeders consuming zooplankton, benthic feeders mainly grazing on algae and an intermediate group feeding on prey from the whole bentho-pelagic compartment. Sulphur isotope ratios indicate segregation between species of the outer reef mostly depending on oceanic input of zooplankton and the lagoonal species relying on locally produced resources or even on terrestrial supply. We demonstrate a tight association between dietary specializations, habitat characteristics and social behaviours, and these correlations are further confirmed by integrating the phylogeny of Pomacentridae. We also provide evidence of phylogenetic conservatism for the stomach content and the habitat–behaviour characters. However, the isotopic trait is evolutionarily more labile probably because it thoroughly depicts the ecological niche of species. To summarize, pelagic feeders (mainly from the Chrominae) usually form shoals in areas close to the open ocean at a maximum depth of 20 m. Benthic feeders (well represented in the Stegastinae) are ubiquitous, solitary and mostly territorial species found at various depths. The intermediate group includes gregarious species from three subfamilies that forage in the lagoon usually above 12 m depth. Overall, we give insight into processes that have structured the damselfish community in Moorea. [less ▲]

We present digital holographic interferometry in the long-wave infrared for monitoring the deformation under cryogenic conditions of a segmented focal plane array (FPA) to be used in a space mission. The long wavelength was chosen for its ability to allow measurement of displacements 20 times larger than DHI in the visible and which were foreseen with the test object under large temperature variations. The latter is a mosaic of 4×4 detectors assembled on a frame. DHI was required to assess the global deformation of the assembly, the deformation of each detector, and piston movements of each of them with respect to their neighbors. For that reason we incorporated the temporal phase unwrapping by capturing a sufficiently high number of holograms between which the phase does not undergo large variations. At last, since the specimen exhibits specular reflectivity at that wavelength, it is illuminated by means of a reflective diffuser. [less ▲]
