Agitation, restlessness, and aggression are frequent neurobehavioural sequelae in the early stages of recovery from traumatic brain injury (TBI). These behavioural symptoms disrupt patient care and impede rehabilitation efforts. We review the current literature (1985 onwards) examining the pharmacological management of post-TBI agitation in both acute and(More)
Modulated (frequency-domain) infrared photothermal radiometry (PTR) is used as a dynamic quantitative dental inspection tool complementary to modulated luminescence (LM) to quantify sound enamel or dentin. A dynamic high-spatial-resolution experimental imaging setup, which can provide simultaneous measurements of laser-induced modulated PTR and LM signals(More)
An amplitude-sensitive optical heterodyne polarimeter was set up to monitor noninvasively the aqueous glucose concentration in a rabbit's eye. A Zeeman laser in conjunction with a Glan-Thompson analyzer was used to generate an optical heterodyne signal. The amplitude of the heterodyne signal linearly related to the optical rotation angle of the aqueous(More)
83 cases (97 eyes) of keratoplasty after chemical corneal injury were followed up for a mean 14 months with the results that 21 (21.6%) grafts were transparent and 76 (78.4%) opaque or semitransparent. The success rate depended on the severity of the chemical injury; it was 87.5% for type A corneal scarring and 15.7% for type B. The causes of graft failure(More)
In situ high-pressure x-ray diffraction, low-temperature resistivity, and magnetization experiments were performed on a La(32)Ce(32)Al(16)Ni(5)Cu(15) bulk metallic glass (BMG). A sudden change in compressibility at approximately 14 GPa and a rapid increase of resistivity at approximately 12 K were detected, whereas magnetic phase transformation and magnetic(More)
Coupled resonator filters designed using a single-layer coupler require coupling materials with an acoustic impedance less than 5.0 MRayl. Carbon-doped oxide, with an acoustic impedance of 4.8 MRayl and an acoustic attenuation of 200 to 600 dB/cm at 1 GHz, can be used as a single-layer coupler to produce a competitive 2-stage coupled resonator filter for(More)
166 patients of corneal perforation from HSK, suppurative corneal ulcer and chemical or thermal burn were treated by penetrating keratoplasty. In the group of HSK, 69.8% of the grafts remained transparent and vision was restored to 0.05-1.0 in 81 cases (69.8); in the group of suppurative corneal ulcer, 40% of the grafts were transparent and vision was(More)
A three-dimensional theory of the frequency-domain thermal-wave field generated inside a turbid medium with optical and thermal properties of human tissue is presented. The optical source is treated as a three-dimensional harmonically modulated diffuse-photon-density wave (DPDW) field in the diffusion approximation of the radiative transfer theory. Unlike(More)
