Keywords: Wireless local area network (WLAN) IEEE 802.11 Energy efficiency Power management a b s t r a c t In recent years, IEEE 802.11 wireless local area networks (WLANs) have been widely deployed, and more and more mobile devices have built-in WLAN interfaces. However, WLAN employs the carrier sense multiple access with collision avoidance (CSMA/CA)(More)
AIMS This study examined the predictors for lower extremity amputation (LEA) in patients with diabetic foot ulcers according to kidney function and, in the case of dialysis patients, specifically evaluated the vasculature with the ankle-brachial index (ABI) and Doppler waveforms. METHODS Among 658 diabetic patients admitted to the Diabetic Foot Care(More)
Patients with diabetes are at a higher risk of having diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) or necrotizing fasciitis (NF). The present study aims to examine the clinical characteristics and associated risk factors for lower-extremity amputation (LEA) in patients with DFU complicated by NF.We retrospectively reviewed patients treated at a major diabetic foot center in(More)
AIMS To elucidate the risk factors for lower extremity amputation (LEA) in patients of diabetic foot disease with different Wagner gradings. METHODS This study was conducted in a multidisciplinary diabetic foot care center. Demographic characteristics, laboratory data, disease history, ankle brachial pressure index (ABI) and Wagner classification were(More)
BACKGROUND Papillary and follicular thyroid cancer is a common malignancy in young patients, and the incidence of this cancer has been increasing. The aims of this study are to assess the clinical characteristics of papillary and follicular thyroid cancer in young patients and evaluate the long-term therapeutic outcomes and prognostic factors for cancer(More)
The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of blood sugar control by a short-course reinforcement program, consisting of using continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) for young adult type 1 diabetic patients. Twenty-six pump-naïve type 1 diabetic patients were successively enrolled in two years. (More)
BACKGROUND Antithyroid drug (ATD)-induced agranulocytosis is rare but may cause fatal complications in patients with thyrotoxicosis during treatment with thionamide-derived drugs. From our previous experience, we note that 2 of 11 such patients died in a 10-year retrospective study. METHODS We reviewed thirteen patients who developed agranulocytosis from(More)
—The design of packet transmission mechanisms of video and voice over wireless networks generally utilizes the characteristics of real-time data to improve the network performance, the energy efficiency of mobile devices, and etc. Unfortunately, WLAN medium access control (MAC) layer does not distinguish real-time and data packets during MAC frame(More)
AIM This study aimed to investigate the nutritional status of patients with limb-threatening diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) and its impact on treatment outcomes. METHODS A total of 478 consecutive patients (mean age, 65.4years) treated for limb-threatening DFUs were enrolled. Nutritional status assessment using the Mini Nutritional Assessment (MNA) and(More)
