    Do Child Characteristics Matter to Mitigate the Widowhood Effect on the Elderly’s Mental Health? Evidence from China

    Yuxin Wang*, Haoyue Ma, Lan Zheng

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.5, pp. 673-686, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.026394

    Abstract This study empirically examines whether child characteristics mitigate the negative impact of widowhood on the elderly’s mental health using follow-up survey data from the China Health and Retirement Longitudinal Study (CHARLS). A total of 5,326 older adults aged 60 years and older are selected from three waves of panel data (2013, 2015, and 2018). The findings suggest that respondents who experienced widowhood exhibit an increase in depressive symptoms. However, the higher income of children and frequent face-to-face emotional interactions improve the mental health of the widowed elderly. Moreover, heterogeneity analyses show that the buffering effect of higher child income is… More >

    Deep Forest-Based Fall Detection in Internet of Medical Things Environment

    Mohamed Esmail Karar1,2,*, Omar Reyad1,3, Hazem Ibrahim Shehata1,4

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.45, No.3, pp. 2377-2389, 2023, DOI:10.32604/csse.2023.032931

    Abstract This article introduces a new medical internet of things (IoT) framework for intelligent fall detection system of senior people based on our proposed deep forest model. The cascade multi-layer structure of deep forest classifier allows to generate new features at each level with minimal hyperparameters compared to deep neural networks. Moreover, the optimal number of the deep forest layers is automatically estimated based on the early stopping criteria of validation accuracy value at each generated layer. The suggested forest classifier was successfully tested and evaluated using a public SmartFall dataset, which is acquired from three-axis accelerometer in a smartwatch. It… More >

    Abeer Abdulaziz AlArfaj, Hanan Ahmed Hosni Mahmoud*

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.35, No.2, pp. 2527-2540, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.030168

    Abstract The detection of heart disease is a problematic task in medical research. This diagnosis utilizes a thorough analysis of the clinical tests from the patient’s medical history. The massive advances in deep learning models pursue the development of intelligent computerized systems that aid medical professionals to detect the disease type with the internet of things support. Therefore, in this paper, we propose a deep learning model for elderly patients to aid and enhance the diagnosis of heart disease. The proposed model utilizes a deeper neural architecture with multiple perceptron layers with regularization learning techniques. The model performance is verified with… More >

    Stefania Nobili*, Daniele Lavacchi, Gabriele Perrone*, Giulio Vicini, Renato Tassi‡1, Ida Landini*, AnnaMaria Grosso§, Giandomenico Roviello, Roberto Mazzanti, Carmine Santomaggio¶2, Enrico Mini

    Oncology Research, Vol.28, No.3, pp. 237-248, 2020, DOI:10.3727/096504019X15755437099308

    Abstract The use of vinorelbine as a single agent or in combination regimens in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is associated with satisfactory clinical activity. However, the role of vinorelbine-based chemotherapy in chemonaive locally advanced unresectable or metastatic NSCLC patients, according to real-world treatment patterns, has still not been widely explored. Eighty-one patients treated at a single institution were retrospectively analyzed. Thirty-seven received standard first-line single-agent vinorelbine, and 44 received vinorelbine plus platinum drugs, based on physician’s choice; 61.7% were older than 70 years, and 60.5% were affected by 2 comorbidities. Sixty-three patients were evaluable for objective response: 22% achieved partial… More >

    Virtual Nursing Using Deep Belief Networks for Elderly People (DBN-EP)

    S. Rajasekaran1,*, G. Kousalya2

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.42, No.3, pp. 985-1000, 2022, DOI:10.32604/csse.2022.022234

    Abstract The demand for better health services has resulted in the advancement of remote monitoring health, i.e., virtual nursing systems, to watch and support the elderly with innovative concepts such as being patient-centric, easier to use, and having smarter interactions and more accurate conclusions. While virtual nursing services attempt to provide consumers and medical practitioners with continuous medical and health monitoring services, access to allied healthcare experts such as nurses remains a challenge. In this research, we present Virtual Nursing Using Deep Belief Networks for Elderly People (DBN-EP), a new framework that provides a virtual nurse agent deployed on a senior… More >

    Evaluation of NFC-Guidable System to Manage Polypharmacy in Elderly Patients

    Khalid Alzahrani1,*, Mrim Alnfiai2

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.41, No.2, pp. 445-460, 2022, DOI:10.32604/csse.2022.020620

    Abstract A complete and thorough understanding by patients of their prescriptions is one of the most critical components of a successful treatment journey. Being unfamiliar with the intricacies of prescribed medication can cause serious health risks due to not adhering to prescription instructions or noting potential drug interactions, which can lead to life-threatening injuries. Pharmacists face communication barriers (including non-English speaking patients), lack of time, lack of knowledge, workload, and frequent interruption when dispensing medicines often preventing them from providing the necessary guidance to their patients. To minimize this risk, an NFC-Guidable polypharmacy system was developed integrating Near Field Technology (NFC)… More >
