Gene expression in higher organisms is thought to be regulated by a complex network of transcription factor binding and chromatin modifications, yet the relative importance of these two factors remains a matter of debate. Here, we show that a computational approach allows surprisingly accurate prediction of histone modifications solely from knowledge of(More)
The admixture of air in inspired gas with a paediatric insufflation system based on a gas jet has been investigated. During anaesthesia with spontaneous ventilation 1% of air per kg body weight was found in tracheal gas samples. A venturi effect was virtually absent even at high jet flows, which suggests that artificial ventilation prevents air admixture.
Five dogs were cooled externally with ice-bags to rectal temperatures of 21.8-24.8 degrees C. Rewarming was performed with a specially constructed double-lumen oesophageal tube with circulating water at 42 degrees C. With this device, rewarming of the dogs to 30 degrees C took place in 60-102 min (mean 82 min). Up to a temperature of 31 degrees C (the(More)
Previous to October 1st, 1981, 8 major Danish anaesthesiological departments registered 105 patients treated with extradural opiates for a period of more than 7 days, partially or completely on outpatient basis. Ninety-four suffered from painful malignant diseases and 11 patients from various painful benign diseases. The mean period of treatment was 65 days(More)
