The histologic findings, natural history, and response to treatment were investigated in 62 patients with pulmonary angiitis andgranulomatosis seen over a 23 year period. Three histologic types were recognized: lymphocyte depleted angiitis and granulomatosis, 24 cases (39 per cent); benign lymphocytic angiitis and granulomatosis, 14 cases (22 per cent); and(More)
Weaning patients from mechanical ventilation can be hindered by both physical and psychologic factors. Biofeedback has been used successfully as an adjunct in difficult weaning problems. We have used a combination of hypnosis and biofeedback to wean a patient with neurologic disease who previously failed weaning by standard procedures. A 30-year-old woman(More)
We present an analytical model to estimate the expected minimum numbers of network elements required to support traffic demands in a multilayer service transport network for the case where grooming of demands into channels is permitted at all nodes. This new scalable formulation expands upon earlier models and makes use of global expectation values, the(More)
Fibrocystic pulmonary disease is a common sequel of chronic pulmonary sarcoidosis, and the subsequent development of intracavitary aspergillomas is frequent, especially in black patients. Pulmonary hemorrhage from aspergilloma is second only to cardiorespiratory failure as the cause of death in sarcoidosis. Opinions regarding the role of resectional surgery(More)
The recent advances in generalized multiprotocol label switching/multiprotocol label switching (GMPLS/MPLS) and extensive study and understanding of packet-over-optical network architecture have made it possible to manage the resources of the packet network and underlying optical transport network in an interoperable manner. This opens up the possibility(More)
Recent advances in generalized multiprotocol label switching (GMPLS) [1,12] and the extensive study and understanding of packet-over-optical network architecture, has made it possible for a single integrated control plane to manage the resources of the packet network and underlying optical transport network in an unified manner. This opens up the(More)
