We present Bedmap2, a new suite of gridded products describing surface elevation, ice-thickness and the seafloor and subglacial bed elevation of the Antarctic south of 60 S. We derived these products using data from a variety of sources, including many substantial surveys completed since the original Bedmap compilation (Bedmap1) in 2001. In particular, the(More)
INTRODUCTION Beta 2 microglobulin (beta2M) is filtered by the glomeruli and reabsorbed by the proximal tubular cells where it is metabolized. Its plasma concentration increases with decreasing renal function. AIM To compare serum creatinine (Cr) and serum beta2M as markers of GFR. PATIENTS AND METHODS In 160 adult patients, with various kidney diseases(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the agreement between the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and an estimate of creatinine clearance (CCr), calculated from the values of body cell mass (BCM) and of plasma creatinine (PCr), thus avoiding urine collection. The value of BCM was obtained from the measurement of total body impedance in 80 renal patients. The(More)
The haemodynamic effects of dobutamine were studied in 14 patients with chronic congestive cardiac failure. Heart rate, central venous, pulmonary arterial, pulmonary wedge, and aortic pressures, aortic dp/dt, cardiac output, cardiac index, stroke volume, and pulmonary and systemic vascular resistances were measured or derived. Dose-response curves were(More)
