C-reactive protein (CRP) is directly implicated in atherogenesis and associated cardiovascular morbidity in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Effective continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment has been shown to gradually decrease CRP levels and thus consequently improve disease-related cardiovascular morbidity. However, the influence(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate if serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) is related to the whole Body Surface Area (BSA), and to several other anthropometric and environmental factors. MATERIALS/METHODS Serum 25(OH)D was determined in 489 apparently healthy subjects (346 women and 143 men, mean age 43.9 years) in April and May. From all subjects the following data(More)
Within the context of assistive robotics we develop an intelligent interface that provides multimodal sensory processing capabilities for human action recognition. Human action is considered in multimodal terms, containing inputs such as audio from microphone arrays, and visual inputs from high definition and depth cameras. Exploring state-of-the-art(More)
A case of a 59-year-old man with a distant forearm muscular metastasis due to squamous cell lung carcinoma is presented. Fourteen months after a right pneumonectomy the patient was readmitted with a mass in the right forearm and pain in the right elbow during flexion. He underwent an en bloc wide resection of the tumor, which was confirmed to be metastatic.(More)
We present a novel video representation for human action recognition by considering temporal sequences of visual words. Based on state-of-the-art dense trajectories, we introduce temporal bundles of dominant, that is most frequent, visual words. These are employed to construct a complementary action representation of ordered dominant visual word sequences,(More)
