AIM To calculate the first Austrian avalanche survival curve and update a Swiss survival curve to explore survival patterns in the Alps. METHODS Avalanche accidents occurring between 2005/06 and 2012/13 in Austria and Switzerland were collected. Completely buried victims (i.e. burial of the head and chest) in open terrain with known outcome (survived or(More)
IgM antibodies to cytomegalovirus (CMV) could be detected in about 7 per cent of 629 pregnant women, whereas in 225 nonpregnant control women of similar age distribution only 2.6 per cent showed CMV IgM antibodies. Intrauterine CMV infections were almost exclusively detected among the CMV IgM positive gravides. The high incidence of CMV IgM antibodies in(More)
An avalanche survival curve is a graphical illustration of survival probability during complete avalanche burial as a function of time. The purpose of calculating these curves is not only to illustrate that survival is time-dependent, but to deduce practical information from the course of the curve. The step-wise decrease of survival over time was first(More)
