The photosynthetic antenna of Chloroflexus aurantiacus includes bacteriochlorophyll (BChl) C740 and BChl a792, both of which occur in chlorosomes, and B808-866 (containing BChl a808 and BChl a866), which is membrane-located (subscripts refer to near-infrared absorption maxima in vivo). BChl a792 is thought to mediate excitation transfer from BChl c740 to(More)
BACKGROUND A nondepolarizing muscle relaxant with an onset and offset profile similar to succinylcholine is desirable for pediatric anesthesia. The onset and offset of rapacuronium are rapid in children. In the current study, the authors determined its pharmacokinetic characteristics in children. In addition to administering rapacuronium by the usual(More)
Understanding the differences between the infant upper airway and the adult upper airway is important in properly managing the infant and pediatric airway. Proper history and physical examination and selection of the appropriate endotracheal tubes, LMAs, and laryngoscopes are key to managing the normal infant and pediatric airway. The difficult infant and(More)
We describe four cases of successful late surgical treatment of lateral condylar fractures of the humerus performed 8 weeks and 2, 5, and 14 years after injury and review the literature on the subject. We suggest that children with symptomatic nonunion and malunion of these fractures can benefit from late surgical treatment at the time of diagnosis. We(More)
BACKGROUND Intravenous rapacuronium's rapid onset and short duration suggest that intramuscular rapacuronium might facilitate tracheal intubation without prolonged paralysis. Accordingly, the authors injected rapacuronium into the deltoid muscle to determine the optimal dose and time for intubation in pediatric patients. METHODS Unpremedicated patients(More)
