The authors studied the effect of multiple threshold determinations on local and global (root-mean-square) short-term fluctuation in 30 subjects (10 controls, 10 glaucoma suspects, and 10 glaucoma patients) with a mean age of 56.70 years. Five custom programs were designed on the Octopus perimeter in which the total number of threshold determinations was(More)
Phenobarbital plasma levels were studied in a group of 25 newborn infants. Phenobarbital was administered i.v. in all cases throughout the study period. The mean loading dose was 19.4 mg/kg, ranging from 16.4 to 20.5, and the mean maintenance dose was 4.0 mg/kg/day, varying from 2.6 to 5.0. We obtained mean plasma levels of 22.9 micrograms/ml, 24 h after(More)
We report a 43 year old man who developed progressive weakness of all extremities with fasciculation over four months. Neurological examination was consistent with an anterior horn syndrome. CSF examination showed elevated opening pressure and a lymphocytic pleocytosis. The diagnosis of sarcoidosis was confirmed by muscle and lacrimal gland biopsies. He was(More)
The aim of this research was to develop a path-flow analysis model from age-group swimmer's performance based on biomechanical and energetic parameters. Twenty two young male age-group swimmers with several competitive levels volunteered to serve as subjects. It was assessed swim velocity, stroke length, stroke frequency, stroke index, propulsive(More)
