Fluoroquinolones are antibiotics that are very effective against many gram negative microorganisms, including P. aeruginosa. However, resistance to these antibiotics has been reported in recent years as well. In this study, the sensitivity of 136 P. aeruginosa strains, isolated from various clinical materials, to fluoroquinolones has been investigated. The(More)
BACKGROUND Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is characterized by repetitive collapse of the upper airway during sleep. Red blood cell distribution width (RDW) increases platelet activation and has been reported as an independent predictor of adverse outcomes in the general population and is believed to be associated with cardiovascular morbidity and(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility of main pulmonary artery diameter quantification by thoracic computerized tomography (CT) in the diagnosis of pulmonary hypertension seconder to biomass smoke exposure. MATERIAL AND METHODS One hundred and four women subjects with biomass smoke exposure and 20 healthy women subjects were(More)
Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) devices are gaining more importance for obtaining sensory information in mobile robot applications. However, existing solutions in literature yield low frequency outputs with huge measurement delay to obtain 3D range image of the environment. This paper introduces the design and construction of a 3D range sensor based on(More)
Loeffler's syndrome is an acute pneumonia with an unclear cause. One fourth of Loeffler's syndrome patients are idiopathic, although the most common etiologic causes include parasites. Asymptomatic form is usually a reversible, self-limited disease, which does not require a specific treatment regimen. We presented a 17-year-old young man with diagnosis of(More)

MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was performed on 86 severe OSA patients and 86 controls. Genotyping was performed to investigate the association of G14713A and T29107A polymorphisms of Caveolin-1 with severe OSA.(More)

Spontaneous combustion of coal is an important problem in mining and storage, in terms of both safety and economics. This is because coal reacts with oxygen in the air and an exothermic reaction occurs, even in ambient conditions. The heat of the reaction accumulates and the reaction becomes progressively faster and thermal runaway may take place to the(More)
