The small archipelago of Bermuda is a geologically young landmass in the Western Atlantic Ocean and recently turned out to be inhabited by a number of intertidal oribatid mites. One newly described species, Carinozetes bermudensis, showed an unusual vast range of habitats like sandy beaches, rocky substrate and mangroves. In the present study, 13 Bermudian(More)
OBJECTIVE To review story, mechanism of action, clinical and therapeutic bases of a sulfur mustard poisoning, by accidental, terrorism or war exposure. DATA SOURCES References were obtained from computerised bibliographic research (Medline), from personnel data (academic memoir, documents under approbation of the National Defense Office) and from the(More)
BACKGROUND Structured, multicentre psychosocial support programmes are rare in Switzerland. The Swiss Cancer League has therefore designed a programme of this kind for cancer patients, and the effect on quality of life (QL) is investigated in the present study. METHODS The programme consisted of 10 weekly 2-hour sessions and was carried out, on the basis(More)
Six dogs and 5 monkeys underwent extra-corporeal circulations with membrane oxygenators for variable time periods (from 4 to 57 hours). The development and evolution of the lesions, which were similar in the two animal species, were controlled by electron microscopic examination of lung samples. From the 2nd h, abnormalities of the capillary endothelium(More)
Schusteria marina sp. nov. is a newly discovered intertidal mite species found on the Lesser Antillean Islands of Martinique and Grenada. It represents the first record of the genus Schusteria within the Caribbean area. Schusteria marina sp. nov. is very similar to the type species, S. littorea from Brazil, but can be distinguished by its smaller body size,(More)
Extracorporeal circulation with membrane oxygenator (E.C.M.O.) was performed in 6 dogs and 5 baboons during 4 to 57 hours. Examination of pulmonary samples showed progressive lesions in the two species: at the second hour of E.C., alteration of capillary endothelium, at the sixth, extensive lesions of all the lung structures, worsening later on. We(More)
Six dogs and 5 monkeys were subject to extracorporeal circulations with membrane oxygenators for various time periods (from 4 to 57 hours). The pulmonary samples, examined with electron microscopy, enabled us to control the appearance of lesions (similar for the two animal species) and to follow their evolution. From the second hour, abnormalities of the(More)
We report the case of a patient with a history of facio-thoracic burns, the treatment of which included prolonged intubation, whose trachea could not be intubated because of a subglottic obstacle. The ventilation was easily controlled with a laryngeal mask. At the end of surgery for postburn cheloids, laryngoscopy through the laryngeal mask showed a(More)
