The most recent advance is the development of continuous glucose monitoring system (CGMS) which gives 24 hour trend of blood sugar levels thus helping both the patient and the physician in achieving better glycemic control. CGMS in pediatric population is generally used(More)

A major reason for this policy gridlock is the inability of different parties to come to an agreement on a path forward. The purpose of this paper is to set out a new framework for regulation in which(More)
This paper evaluates the Depth First Forwarding (DFF) protocol - a reliable data forwarding mechanism for use in low power, lossy networks. Routing protocols used for lossy networks typically take time to converge if the topology changes, during which data failure may occur. DFF was proposed to help reduce this; it reacts to data delivery failures at a node(More)
