The study of CVI is still a new field, and diagnosis is frequently difficult and sometimes may not even be considered. Different studies have taken(More)
Reflex responses of mean blood pressure and of heart rate to either bilateral common carotid occlusion (CO) or unilateral carotid sinus dilatation (CSD) during rest and different behaviours have been compared in conscious cats. Unloading and loading the carotid sinus receptors elicited equal reflex responses both of mean blood pressure and of heart rate(More)
Large-scale simulation of the soil-derived dust emission in semi-arid regions needs to account for the in ̄uence of the soil moisture on the wind erosion threshold. Soil water retention consists of molecular adsorption on the soil grain surface and capillary forces between the grain. Interparticle capillary forces (characterized by the moisture tension) are(More)
Syndrome X is a clinical entity not yet well defined. The identification of patients with syndrome X is important as, in comparison with patients with obstructive coronary artery disease, their prognosis is quite favorable. The diagnosis is confirmed by coronary angiography, but non-invasive tools can give some useful information, too. We illustrate 5 cases(More)
In the article the authors illustrate: a) a community detection program designed to identify subjects with high blood pressure for treatment; b) the degree of participation; c) the cost of realization; d) the prevalence of arterial hypertension. A total of 4.149 subjects, or 65% of the examined population over age 8, were screened. The opportunity to have(More)
