This paper reports results from two example data sets of a two-stage sampling design where sampling (in panels) both farms and animals within selected farms increases the efficiency of parameter estimation from measurements recorded over time. With such a design, not only are farms replaced from time-to-time but also animals subsampled within retained farms(More)
The purpose of this study was to establish a range of acceptable torque values for competition in high school football. The results indicated that body weight can be used as an acceptable predictor of lower extremity muscular torque. Therefore, it was concluded that body weight can be utilized to produce an average range of desirable torque values for(More)
We describe the case of a 53-year-old patient who presented with an intermittent discharging sinus on his face which, following a number of investigations, was found to be secondary to an ectopic third molar in the condylar region. The ectopic tooth was surgically removed with complete resolution of the facial swelling. This case highlights the possibility(More)
BACKGROUND Most information about pharyngeal collapse in dogs is anecdotal and extrapolated from human medicine. A single case report describing dynamic pharyngeal collapse in a cat has been published, but there is no literature describing this disease process in dogs. OBJECTIVE To describe the signalment, clinical presentation, concurrent disease(More)
BACKGROUND Primary hyperaldosteronism (PHA) in cats occurs as a consequence of excessive hormone production by an adrenocortical tumor. Median survival time, association between tumor type and prognosis, and the likelihood that cats require continued medical therapy after surgery have not been systematically evaluated. OBJECTIVES To determine the median(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies have validated methods for determining kinematic gait events using threshold-based techniques. However, a simple method that can be successfully applied to walk, trot and canter is yet to be identified. OBJECTIVES To develop a simple kinematic method to identify the timing of hoof contact (hoof-on), peak vertical force and lift(More)
To define the appropriate regime for the transition from intravenous lignocaine to oral tocainide after uncomplicated acute myocardial infarction, 43 patients received lignocaine to steady state. Each patient then received a tocainide dosage schedule. Plasma concentration of lignocaine and tocainide was measured frequently until the third peak plasma(More)
