Heart failure (HF) affects over 5.1 million people in the United States resulting in poor clinical outcomes, early mortality, and increased readmission rates despite advances in technology and treatment modalities. Healthcare costs are projected to rise from $31 billion in 2012 to $70 billion by 2030. Telemonitoring ("technology") allows self-monitoring of daily weight, blood pressure, and clinical symptoms. Remote access to patient data facilitates communication and timely follow-up between healthcare teams and patients. However, older adults with HF often lack appropriate training and support when introduced to new technology and may not recognize or interpret early HF-related symptoms due to poor self-care behavior or lack of skill-building. Nurse coaching ("touch") reinforces HF education and promotes self-care behavior. Telemonitoring and nurse coaching combined demonstrate potential benefits; however, both care transition approaches are costly with mixed results. No studies have explored dose effects of technology and touch on self-care, self-care confidence, and clinical outcomes. The purpose of this study was to examine relationships among selected patient characteristics, dose intervention of technology and touch, self-care, self-care confidence, and 30-day outcomes in older adults with HF. A descriptive correlation design using secondary analysis of data collected for the Better Effectiveness After Transition - Heart Failure Randomized Clinical Trial was used. Measures included sociodemographic and clinical characteristics, Self-Care of Heart Failure Index scores, dose intervention of technology and touch, and 30-day readmission rates. Descriptive findings are presented. Statistical analyses included chi square, t-tests, and analysis of variance. Four dose intervention subgroups were identified: Low Tech Low Touch (LTLT), Low Tech High Touch (LTHT), High Tech Low Touch (HTLT), and High Tech High Touch (HTHT). Dose intervention was significantly associated (p

Media Technology And Literature In The Nineteenth Century

Operating at the intersection where new technology meets literature, this collection discovers the relationship among image, sound, and touch in the long nineteenth century. The chapters speak to the special mixed-media properties of literature, while exploring the important interconnections of science, technology, and art at the historical moment when media was being theorized, debated, and scrutinized. Each chapter focuses on a specific visual, acoustic, or haptic dimension of media, while also calling attention to the relationships among the three. Famous works such as Wordsworth's "I wandered lonely as a cloud" and Shelley's Frankenstein are discussed alongside a range of lesser-known literary, scientific, and pornographic writings. Topics include the development of a print culture for the visually impaired; the relationship between photography and narrative; the kaleidoscope and modern urban experience; Christmas gift books; poetry, painting and music as remediated forms; the interface among the piano, telegraph, and typewriter; Ernst Heinrich Weber's model of rationalized tactility; and how the shift from visual to auditory telegraphic instruments amplified anxieties about the place of women in nineteenth-century information networks. Full of surprising insights and connections, the collection offers new impetus for stimulating historical conversations and debates about nineteenth-century media, while also contributing fresh perspectives on new media and (re)mediation today.

Offering the first comprehensive analysis of touchless fingerprint-recognition technologies, Touchless Fingerprint Biometrics gives an overview of the state of the art and describes relevant industrial applications. It also presents new techniques to efficiently and effectively implement advanced solutions based on touchless fingerprinting. The most accurate current biometric technologies in touch-based fingerprint-recognition systems require a relatively high level of user cooperation to acquire samples of the concerned biometric trait. With the potential for reduced constraints, reduced hardware costs, quicker acquisition time, wider usability, and increased user acceptability, this book argues for the potential superiority of touchless biometrics over touch-based methods. The book considers current problems in developing high-accuracy touchless recognition technology. It discusses factors such as shadows, reflections, complex backgrounds, distortions due to perspective effects, uncontrolled finger placement, inconstant resolution of the ridge pattern, and reconstruction and processing of three-dimensional models. The last section suggests what future work can be done to increase accuracy in touchless systems, such as intensive studies on extraction and matching methods and three-dimensional analytical capabilities within systems. In a world where usability and mobility have increasing relevance, Touchless Fingerprint Biometrics demonstrates that touchless technologies are also part of the future. A presentation of the state of the art, it introduces you to the field and its immediate future directions.

Mobile phones are a ubiquitous technology with a fascinating history. There are now as many mobile phones in the world as there are people. We carry them around with us wherever we go. And while we used to just speak into them, now mobiles are used to do all kinds of tasks, from talking to twittering, from playing a game to paying a bill. Jon Agar takes the mobile to pieces, tracing what makes it work, and puts it together again, showing how it was shaped in different national contexts in the United States, Europe, the Far East and Africa. He tells the story from the early associations with cars and the privileged, through its immense popular success, to the rise of the smartphone. Few scientific revolutions affect us in such a day-to-day way as the development of the mobile phone. Jon Agar's deft history explains exactly how this revolution has come about - and where it may lead in the future.
