[1] Expeditions 304 and 305 of the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program cored and logged a 1.4 km section of the domal core of Atlantis Massif. Postdrilling research results summarized here constrain the structure and lithology of the Central Dome of this oceanic core complex. The dominantly gabbroic sequence recovered contrasts with predrilling predictions;(More)
Impedance cardiography was compared with thermodilution cardiography in the measurement of cardiac output serially during maintenance hemodialyses in ten chronic uremic patients. Measurements were carried out pre-dialysis and post-dialysis as well as hourly during dialysis. The results demonstrated statistical identity between impedance and thermodilution(More)
A case of toxic shock syndrome and a case of drug-induced toxic epidermal necrolysis with renal involvement are described. The two patients had similar early clinical manifestations and therefore posed a difficult differential diagnosis. Diagnostic distinction is important because therapy differs considerably. A skin biopsy in each case proved helpful in(More)
Previous studies from our laboratory suggested a decrease in tissue oxygen delivered during hemodialysis of chronic uremic patients due to an increase in hemoglobin-oxygen affinity, i.e. decrease in P50. This current study was designed to determine whether the changes in cardiac index and/or tissue oxygen extraction could compensate for increases in(More)
Five patients developed pruritic, keratotic, perforating follicular papules and nodules within 2 months of starting maintenance hemodialysis. Clinically and histologically, the papules and nodules showed the features of perforating folliculitis with superimposed prurigo nodularis, a condition not previously described in patients on maintenance dialysis. The(More)
