mmediate, on-scene emergency medical response can reduce the number of fatalities sustained during military operations. Without medical support, injured soldiers must be transported over signifi cant distances to a facility capable of administering defi nitive medical care, an action that may not be possible. Domestic mass casualty support has also come to(More)
When urea is added to Ureaplasma urealyticum, it is hydrolysed internally by a cytosolic urease. Under our measuring conditions, and at an external pH of 6.0, urea hydrolysis caused an ammonia chemical potential equivalent to almost 80 mV and, simultaneously, an increase in proton electrochemical potential (delta p) of about 24 mV with resultant de novo ATP(More)
Citrus crops are considered to be relatively poor hosts for Queensland fruit fly, Bactrocera tryoni (Froggatt), as for other tephritid species. Australian citrus growers and crop consultants have reported observable differences in susceptibility of different citrus cultivars under commercial growing conditions. In this study we conducted laboratory tests(More)
While the epidemiologic trends concerning alprazolam (Xanax) are unknown, the use of benzodiazepines, in general, has increased in popularity among youth within recent years. To shed light on the drug problem, the current pilot study used a qualitative approach to investigate relevant beliefs, norms, and perceived addiction associated with alprazolam(More)
The complex blood flow patterns occurring in a trout secondary lamella were computed from a theoretical electrical model consisting of a two-dimensional array of unitary resistances representing the blood channels of the lamella. Estimates of oxygen uptake from water to blood were made by means of the standard conductance equations for oxygen and values(More)
