This decrease was greatest in the left frontal and temporal regions; no occipital lead showed this pattern. Relative EEG amplitude analysis, based on normalized maps, revealed decreases with age across alpha, delta, and theta bands with(More)

UNLABELLED PET is a sensitive technique for the identification of viable myocardial tissue in patients with coronary disease. Metabolic assessment with (18)F-FDG is considered the gold standard for assessment of viability before surgical revascularization. Prior research has suggested that viability may be assessed with washout of (82)Rb between early and(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the clinical features in HIV-positive patients with and without infective endocarditis (IE). PATIENTS AND METHODS All bacteremic, HIV-positive patients with suspected IE admitted over a four-year period who underwent either transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) or transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) were retrospectively reviewed(More)
This systemic review was performed to determine whether rocuronium creates intubating conditions comparable to those of succinylcholine during rapid sequence intubation of the trachea. We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL; 2015, Issue 2), MEDLINE (1966 to February Week 2 2015), and EMBASE (1988 to February 14 2015) for any(More)
