Sixty individuals including 17 competitive weight lifters (CWL), 12 competitive long-distance runners (LDR), 7 amateur (noncompetitive) weight lifters (AWL), 14 heavy controls (HC), and 10 light controls (LC) were studied at supine rest and during static exercise at 40% of maximal voluntary contraction. Blood pressures were similar in all groups at rest (R)(More)
Sixty individuals including 17 competitive weight lifters (CWL), 12 competitive long-distance runners (LDR), 7 amateus (noncompetitive) weight lifters (AWL), 14 heavy controls (HC), and 10 light controls (LC) were studied at supine rest with echocardiographic determination of the left venticular mass (LVM) by the Penn convention. Lean body mass (LBM) was(More)
To determine the acute and chronic effects of static and dynamic exercise upon the cardiovascular system, two groups of athletes were studied and compared to untrained control individuals. Thus, 12 long distance runners (LDR) and 17 competitive weight lifters (CWL) were compared to 10 light controls (LC) and 14 heavy controls (HC). The echocardiographically(More)
Propranolol levels in plasma were studied in relation to dose prescribed in order to assess poor compliance with antihypertensive treatment. Fifty consecutive ambulatory patients (36-81 years) having hypertension, including 19 with azotemia, were investigated. Patient interviews using questionnaires and chart reviews were used to evaluate compliance. A(More)
A simple, fast, sensitive, and inexpensive method is described for routine therapeutic monitoring of both total and free valproic acid (VPA) at therapeutic concentrations in seizure patients. The method uses solid-phase (Bond Elut) columns for the preliminary extraction of 100 microliters plasma or serum and gas-liquid chromatography (GLC) analysis, using(More)
We study the topology of a subspace of the function space of continuous selfmappings of a givenmanifold: the subspace determined bymaps having the least number of fixed points in its homotopy class. In the case that the manifold is a closed disk of finite dimension, we prove that this subspace is both globally and locally path connected. We also prove this(More)
