  • A study in dogs demonstrated that profound hypocapnia [PaCO2 below 10-15 mmHg (1.3-2.0 kPa)] and extreme hypercapnia [PaCO2 in excess of 90-95 mmHg (12.0-12.7 kPa)] can reduce MAC (Eisle et al. 1967). Another study in rats, however, demonstrated a linear relationship between MAC and PaCO2 (Brosnan et al. 2007). At this time, no information on the…[Read more]

  • Engle and Patton (2001) harped on the theme that a volatility model must be able to forecast volatility, which this is the central requirement in almost all-financial applications. Their conclusion was that pronounced persistence and mean-reversion, asymmetry such that the sign of an innovation also affects volatility and the possibility of…[Read more]

  • FundingFunding for this study was provided by the Clinical Research Committee, Department of Medicine, Christiana Care Health System, Newark, DE, USA. The statistical analysis only was partially supported by an Institutional Development Award (IDeA) from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health under…[Read more]

  • 3. Results3.1. Macroscopic freeze concentration of BSAUsing a common thermofluid set temperature of ?40 °C, solutions of unlabeled BSA were frozen at different freezing rates. The fastest freezing rate involved immediate switch from room to set temperature. Relatively slower freezing rates involved linear temperature ramps from room to set…[Read more]

  • The rate of maternal injury death varied widely by demographic and pregnancy characteristics, including religion, education, insurance status, residence, employment status, and number of live children. Maternal death also varied by injury characteristics, including mechanism of injury and anatomic location of injury (see Supplemental materials…[Read more]

  • Our study demonstrated that the average excursions of the bilateral order ddr1 during tidal breathing (right: 11.0 mm, 95% CI 10.4 to 11.6 mm; left: 14.9 mm, 95% CI 14.2 to 15.5 mm) were numerically less than those during forced breathing in previous studies using other modalities 2; 7 ;  8. Using fluoroscopy, Alexander reported that the average…[Read more]

  •  A representative video of sequential chest radiographs obtained by chest dynamic radiography for the motion of the diaphragms (“dynamic X-ray phrenicography”). A board-certified radiologist placed a point of interest (red point) on the highest point of each 7 8-dihydroxyflavone on the radiograph at the resting end-expiratory position. These…[Read more]

  • We found that higher BMI and higher tidal volume were independently associated with the increased excursions of the bilateral levosimendan by both univariate and multivariate analyses, although the strength of these associations was weak. We cannot explain the exact reason for the correlation between BMI and the excursion of the diaphragm.…[Read more]

  •  A representative video of sequential chest radiographs obtained by chest dynamic radiography for the motion of the diaphragms (“dynamic X-ray phrenicography”). A board-certified radiologist placed a point of interest (red point) on the highest point of each brompheniramine maleate on the radiograph at the resting end-expiratory position. These…[Read more]

    Multiple linear regression analysis using all variables as factors (Model 1) demonstrated that weight, BMI, and tidal volume were independently associated with the bilateral excursion of the diaphragms (all P < 0.05) after adjusting for other clinical variables, including age, gender, smoking history, height, VC, %VC, FEV1, FEV1%, and %FEV1. There…[Read more]
