Abstract
Long QT-interval is one of most important predictors of risk of development of life threatening arrhythmias and sudden death. Correct measurement of QT-interval is essential for diagnosis of its prolongation. At present the Bazett formula for calculation of corrected QT (QT(c) = QT/ radical (RR)) is a standard method of QT estimation. However historically in Russia calculation of predicted QT (QT(k) = k radical (RR)) QT(k) has become an accepted technique. Furthermore many authors in this country apply criteria created for QT(c) for interpretation of QT(k) values. This results in hyperdiagnosis of QT prolongation in unaffected persons, erroneous conclusions on harmless nature of this condition, and underestimation of risk in patients with real long QT syndrome. Thus it is vital to proclaim calculation of QT(c) an obligatory standard and to use existing international criteria for its interpretation.

Abstract
Between 1971 and 1985, sex-specific suicide rates in Canada have diverged, with male rates increasing and female rates decreasing. Using linear regression techniques, we examined changes in sex- and method-specific rates and their association with changes in overall sex-specific rates. 92% of the variability in the overall female rates was explained by the declining rate for poisoning by solid or liquid substances. The most important change for males was the increasing rate for hanging, strangulation and suffocation which explained 65% of the change in the overall rate.

Abstract
At the population level, the quantitative assessment of the impact of social-economic and medical-demographic factors on the dynamics of main mental health indicators (prevalence, incidence, level of suicide, disability) in the population of the Russian Federation in 1992-2010 years is presented. Regression models relating the key indicators of mental health with the health-demographic and social-economic factors have been developed. The interpretation of the dynamics of mental health in Russia according to the social changes and living conditions in the country during 1992-2010 years is suggested. Models have good predictive performance, which allows their use as a tool for real-time monitoring and planning of health and social services.

Abstract
This study examined the relationship between job stress and employees' performance and withdrawal behavior among nurses (N = 440) in two hospitals in a metropolitan Canadian city on the east coast. Job stressors assessed included role ambiguity, role overload, role conflict, and resource inadequacy. Employees' performance was operationalized in terms of job performance, motivation, and patient care skill. Withdrawal behaviors assessed were absenteeism, tardiness, and anticipated turnover. Multiple regressions, curvilinear correlation coefficients, and canonical correlations were computed to test the nature of the relationship between stressors and the criterion variables of the study. In general, data were more supportive of the negative linear relationship between stress and performance than for positive linear or curvilinear relationship. However, the stressor role ambiguity did exhibit a monotonic nonlinear relationship with a number of criterion variables. Employees' professional and organizational commitment were proposed to moderate the stress-performance relationship. However, the data only partially supported the role of the moderators.

Abstract
The Social Anxiety and Phobia Inventory for Children (SPAI-C), the Children's Depression Inventory (CDI), Harter's (1982) Perceived Competence Scale for Children (PCSC), as well as an inventory of cost and likelihood appraisal of negative social and non-social events, were filled in by 184 adolescents (14-15 years old). It was expected that social anxiety would be specifically related to low perceived competence in the social domain and threat appraisal in the same domain, whereas depression would be related to more general perceived competence deficits. The relationships of social anxiety and depression to perceived competence and appraisal were largely supported. Social anxiety was most strongly related to perceived social competence as well as to both social cost and likelihood appraisals, whereas depression was more generally related to perceived competence, and appraisal of negative events did not improve the prediction of depression any more than the prediction based on perceived competence.

Abstract
Mechanisms underlying effects of physical factors on twin births are unclear. The present work studied an association between monthly and yearly multiple birth rates (MBRs) in the Novosibirsk region, south-west Siberia, in relation to solar activity (sunspot numbers) and geomagnetic activity (Ap index) from 1957 to 2008. The difference was verified by comparing the yearly MBR observed in 3-year peaks (M = 7.36, SD = 0.33 per 1,000 births) and 3-year troughs (M = 8.10, SD = 0.31 per 1,000 births, p

Abstract
Correlation and regression analysis of tuberculosis morbidity among children in Udmurtiya covered the period from 1991 to 2007. It was shown that linear functions can be used to prognosticate the morbidity rate. It is expected to increase in the near future. The morbidity rate is influenced by such factors as the lack of adequate disinfection in the foci of tuberculous infection, unfavourable living conditions, irregular treatment of infection sources, concomitant chronic pathology, incomplete family, and poorly controlled preventive chemotherapy.
