Paracoccidioidomycosis is a systemic mycosis of importance in Latin America. Because of its polymorphic manifestations, it is not always suspected and patients are sometimes misdiagnosed. Case histories of patients with paracoccidioidomycosis are presented in order to illustrate its various manifestations, with emphasis on the primary pulmonary localization.
OBJECTIVE Arterial stiffness has been demonstrated to predict and be related to cardiovascular disease (CVD). Reference values of carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (cf-PWV), the gold standard measure of arterial stiffness, and local carotid and femoral arterial stiffness, derived from the distensibility coefficient (DC), have been established. The use of(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim was to test the technical feasibility of a set up combining tonometry and ultrasound, designated as Continuous Physiological and Medical Monitoring (CPMM), for cardiovascular assessment on humans and to evaluate the ability to assess physiological changes induced by artificial gravity in the short arm human centrifuge (SAHC, Verhaert,(More)
In this work a two-valued state feedback control for a plant of second order with known constant coefficients and an additive bounded disturbance is designed. In this controller the control signal can take only two possible values. The controller design is based on Lyapunov-like function method, achieving the convergence of the tracking error to a(More)
