Summary

Patients will complete questionnaires at 5 time points over 24 months (within 60 days of diagnosis, then at 3, 6, 12 and 24 months after diagnosis). Surveys can be done either on paper or online. It is estimated that it will take 45-60 minutes to complete the first questionnaire and 20-30 minutes to complete the 3, 6, 12 and 24 month questionnaires. Information requested will be about the patient's finances and employment, as well as basic demographic information which will be obtained from the patient's medical records. Patients will be asked to provide their contact information to the ECOG-ACRIN Outcomes and Economics Assessment Unit at Brown University, which will administer the surveys.

Summary

This study will compare the safety and effectiveness of a new facemask, the Tao mask, as compared to the standard mask for manual ventilation of patients with BMIs of 40 or greater who are undergoing elective surgery. The Tao mask and the standard mask will both be used for each patient but the order of evaluating the masks will be randomized.

Summary

This study proposes to design and build a neural imager/stimulator which will let us obtain information about brain circuits and pathways by acquiring electrical and fMRI signals from the brain at the same time. By adding magnetic stimulation to the instrument we will be able to perturb these circuits at precise times and locations in order to both improve how TMS is used as an anti-depression treatment as well as to better understand how our brains function. This research has the potential to revolutionize our understanding of how best to use TMS as a treatment as well as learning how our brains function. This study simply proposes to develop the combined instrument. The use of the new instrument as a anti-depressive treatment will be presented independently after we have developed a working instrument.
