At cardiac investigations Doppler echocardiography is an established technique for the recording of intracardial and intravascular flow velocities. Transvalvular and venous flows are, however, markedly influenced by respiration. Since the start of inspiration is the important time of reference, accurate recording of the respiratory phase is important when(More)
When one analyzes transvalvular and venous flow velocity patterns, it is important to relate them to respiration. For this reason a nasal thermistor technique is often used, although it is known that this signal is delayed in relation to intrathoracic pressure changes. The magnitude and variation in delay have not been investigated previously and were,(More)
The hemispheric proximal isovelocity surface area method for quantification of mitral regurgitant flow (i.e., Qc = 2 pi r2v), where 2 pi r2 is the surface area and v is the velocity at radius r, was investigated as distance from the orifice was increased. Computer simulations and steady flow model experiments were performed for orifices of 4, 6, and 8 mm.(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the changes of displacement and stress in the model of lumbar pelvic and proximal femur during lumbar rotatory manipulation. METHODS The date of lumbar pelvic and proximal femur CT scan by Mimics 10.01 software was established a lumbar pelvic and proximal femur geometric model, then the model was modified with Geomagic 9, at last the(More)
OBJECTIVE Previous studies on atrial recovery after cardioversion of atrial fibrillation have not taken into account new knowledge about the pathophysiology of transmitral and transtricuspid flow velocity patterns. It is possible to shed further light on this problem if atrioventricular inflow velocity, venous filling pattern, and atrioventricular annulus(More)
