Diagnosis of mixed acid-base disturbances is often difficult. Nowadays it depends on biochemical and statistical interpretation, coupled with clinical data. The acid-base slide-rule is a useful tool to carry out this five step procedure, which it simplifies, giving rapidly at the patient's bed-side an objective support for the diagnosis of acid-base(More)
An automatic feedback control system that maintains an average bit error rate (BER) on decoded code words is proposed for log-likelihood ratio (LLR)error correction code (ECC) decoders. The input to the controller is the LLR output of the decoder, while the controller output is the decoder iteration parameter. The loop error signal is constructed by(More)
Eighty-two children, class ASA I, between four months and 14 years of age, all undergoing elective subumbilical surgery, were randomly assigned to two groups: a control "halothane anesthesia" group (n = 35) and a 0.25% bupivacaine "caudal anaesthesia" group (n = 47). In the control group, there was a significant peroperative increase in heart rate,(More)
The properties of propofol in emulsion given by continuous intravenous infusion to spontaneously breathing patients have been well studied. Thirty randomized voluntary premedicated patients undergoing dental extraction were anaesthetized with propofol (2.5 mg X kg-1 IVD, and 9 mg X kg-1 X h-1) or with propanidid (9 mg X kg-1 IVD, and 60 mg X kg-1 X h-1),(More)
Three cases of thrombocytopenia in pregnant women are described. Two of these patients had an AIDS-like illness and the third one had AIDS. This HIV-associated change occurred in 8% of the complications of a consecutive series of 38 pregnant women who were positive for the HIV antibody test in the course of one year. A link with HIV was established after(More)
