OBJECTIVE The study investigates the effectiveness of aerosol treatment on gas exchange and pulmonary inflammatory reaction using perfluorocarbons with different molecular structure and vapor pressure. DESIGN Experimental, prospective, randomized, controlled study. SETTING Experimental laboratory at a university hospital. SUBJECTS Twenty anesthetized(More)
A colloidal particle adsorbed at a fluid interface could have an undulated, or irregular contact line in the presence of surface roughness and/or chemical inhomogeneity. The contact-line undulations produce distortions in the surrounding liquid interface, whose overlap engenders capillary interaction between the particles. The convex and concave local(More)
The arterial wall consists of three major microstructural components, collagen, elastin, and smooth muscle cells; all of which play important roles in the cardiovascular function of health and disease. From a biomechanical perspective, collagen with its high tensile strength constitutes the most important component, endowing the arterial wall with strength(More)
Wave propagation problems play an important role, not only in the scientific community, but also in industry. Think of acoustic scattering, sound radiation and other related problems. A common feature of these problems is the large or even infinite extension of the acoustic domain compared to the rather limited extension of the surface of the embedded(More)
