Morphological and metabolic development of the gustatory zone of the rostral nucleus of the solitary tract (NST) was examined in rat. Transganglionic transport of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) was used to visualize the organization of gustatory projections to the rostral gustatory NST in rats aged postnatal day 1 (P1) to P34. Golgi impregnation studies were(More)
Adaptation to dynamic environmental cues during organismal development requires coordination of tissue growth with available resources. More specifically, the effects of oxygen availability on body size have been well-documented, but the mechanisms through which hypoxia restricts systemic growth have not been fully elucidated. Here, we characterize the(More)
The Direct Observation of Procedural Skills (DOPS) form is used as a workplace-based assessment tool in the current Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists curriculum. The objective of this study was to evaluate the reliability of DOPS when used to score trainees performing ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia. Reliability of an assessment(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The objectives of this study were to determine the learning curve for capturing sonograms and identifying anatomical structures relevant to ultrasound-guided axillary brachial plexus block and to determine if massed was superior to distributed practice for this core sonographic skill.
