Maintaining the energy of sensors in Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is important in critical applications. WSN consists of sensor nodes which sense the physical parameters such as temperature, humidity, pressure and light etc and send them to a fusion center namely Base Station (BS) from where one can get the value of physical parameters at any time. Man(More)
Most of the sensor nodes in a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) have limited energy. In order to increase the network lifetime, some energy efficient algorithms were proposed earlier. It has been a challenge to design wireless sensor networks to enable applications for oceanographic data collection, pollution monitoring, offshore exploration, disaster(More)
We present a rare case of steatohepatitis due to neutral lipid storage disorder in a 1.5-year-old male presenting with intermittent fever, hepatomegaly and dark-coloured urine. On examination, there was ichthyosis involving both the limbs. Liver biopsy showed steatohepatitis. The peripheral blood smear revealed fat vacuoles in the cytoplasm of leucocytes,(More)
Various well-established techniques exist for functional safety analysis of safety-critical avionics systems. Most of these techniques are based on informal models and due to this, analysis is often subjective and success is dependent on the skill of the practitioner. Various standards like DO-178B, IEC 61508 etc. that provide guidelines to perform safety(More)
Mucocele first described by langenbeck in 1818, is an epithelial lined, mucous containing sac completely filling the sinus and capable of expansion. 1 A clinically significant mucocele most commonly originates in the frontoethmoidal sinus. 2 Frontoethmoidal areas are most susceptible to mucocele formation due to complexity of its drainage as compared to(More)
