Comparing mortality in patients with atrial fibrillation who are receiving a direct-acting oral anticoagulant or warfarin: a meta-analysis of randomized trials
BackgroundIn patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF), direct-acting oral anticoagulants (DOACs) are at least non-inferior to warfarin for the prevention of stroke and systemic embolism. The main objective of ...
General practitioner contribution to out-of-hospital cardiac arrest outcome: a national registry study
(Informa UK Limited, 2014-11-11)
Background: There is a wide variation in reported survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). One factor in this variation may be the contribution of general practitioners to pre-hospital resuscitation. Studies ...
Optimising reproductive performance of beef cows and replacement heifers
(Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2014-04-07)
A reproductively efficient beef cow herd is fundamental to meeting the protein and specifically, red meat demand of an ever increasing global population. However, attaining a high level of reproductive efficiency is ...
Assessing the state of pelagic fish communities within an ecosystem approach and the european marine strategy framework directive
(Oxford University Press (OUP), 2014-02-20)
Pelagic fish are key elements in marine foodwebs and thus comprise an important part of overall ecosystem health. We develop a suite of ecological indicators that track pelagic fish community state and evaluate state of ...
Interactive water services: the waternomics approach

Estimating biomass, fishing mortality, and &quot;total allowable discards&quot; for surveyed non-target fish
(Oxford University Press (OUP), 2014-08-27)
Demersal fisheries targeting a few high-value species often catch and discard other &quot;non-target&quot; species. It is difficult to quantify the impact of this incidental mortality when population biomass of a ...
Prespawning herring distribution in the irish celtic sea between 2005 and 2012
(Oxford University Press (OUP), 2014-08-24)
Knowledge of the spatial distribution of species is fundamental to understanding trophic interactions and ecosystem structure. Intraspecies-specific dynamics and environmental factors shape species distribution within an ...
A review of the past, the present, and the future of fishers' knowledge research: a challenge to established fisheries science
(Oxford University Press (OUP), 2014-10-03)
Fishers' knowledge research is an approach to fisheries research that has a relatively long history, yet has generally failed to become integrated into the fisheries science mainstream alongside approaches that rely primarily ...
Cost-effective imta: a comparison of the production efficiencies of mussels and seaweed
(Springer Nature, 2014-03-05)
This paper compares the biofilter capacity and cost-effectiveness of blue mussels (Mytilus edulis) and seaweed for use in integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA) based on experiences in Ireland and Denmark. This ...
