A comprehensive gas puff capability is being developed on the Z pulsed power generator. We describe the methodology employed for developing a gas puff load on Z, which combines characterization and modeling of the neutral gas mass flow from a supersonic nozzle, numerical modeling of the implosion of this mass profile, and experimental evaluation of these(More)
The objective of this study was to determine whether PGE1 or PGE2 prevents a premature luteolysis when oxytocin is given on Days 1 to 6 of the ovine estrous cycle. Oxytocin given into the jugular vein every 8 hours on Days 1 to 6 postestrus in ewes decreased (P ≤ 0.05) luteal weights on Day 8 postestrus. Plasma progesterone differed (P ≤ 0.05) among the(More)
The objective of this study was to determine whether prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) or prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) prevents premature luteolysis in ewes when progesterone is given during the first 6 days of the estrous cycle. Progesterone (3 mg in oil, im) given twice daily from Days 1 to 6 (estrus = Day 0) in ewes decreased (P < 0.05) luteal weights on Day 10(More)
Surgically created arteriovenous fistulae (AVF) for hemodialysis can contribute to hemodynamic changes. We describe the cases of 2 male patients in whom new right ventricular enlargement developed after an AVF was created for hemodialysis. Patient 1 sustained high-output heart failure solely attributable to the AVF. After AVF banding and subsequent(More)

The literature suggests that there is a need for measuring public health informatics (PHI) competency to further understand whether current educational modules and modalities meet the needs of PHI practitioners and researchers to perform their jobs more effectively, particularly for mid-tier practitioners that constitute the majority of public health(More)
