Preface This user guide is intended for clinicians with some knowledge of programming and/or graduate-level researchers with knowledge of biomedical signal processing. The user is expected to have a working knowledge of SQL. Basic knowledge of a statistical (signal processing) package such as Matlab or R is useful. Knowledge of C/C++ and/or Java may also(More)
The present study examined whether hemodilution with 20% human serum albumin (HSA) or 10% hydroxyethyl starch (HES) improved the outcome from closed-head trauma (CHT) in rats. Rats anesthetized with halothane were given one of three hemodilution solutions (i.e., 20% HSA, 10% HES, or control [0.9% saline]) after CHT or sham surgery. CHT was delivered using a(More)
Closed head trauma (CHT) increases brain tissue prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) concentration, and that increase is associated with cerebral edema formation and worsening of the neurologic severity score (NSS). Injection of the bacterial endotoxin lipopolysacharride (LPS) increases cerebral and hypothalamic PGE2, and the hypothalamic increase is associated with(More)
Recently, the enzyme cyclooxygenase (COX) has been recognized to exist as constitutive (COX-1) and inducible isoforms (COX-2). In previous studies, drugs that were inhibitors of both COX-1 and COX-2 failed to decrease brain edema formation or improve Neurological Severity Score (NSS) after closed head trauma (CHT), although some did decrease(More)
