And God said, Let there be light; and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. Genesis 1:3 Depression has been linked with seasonal affective disorder (SAD), a condition that affects many people during the seasons of relatively fewer hours of daylight. Experimental research in psychology has documented a clear link between depression and(More)
The complications associated with acquiring and storing whole blood for transfusions have launched substantial efforts to develop a blood substitute. The history of these efforts involves a complicated mixture of science, ethics, and business. This review focuses on clinical trials of the three hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers (HBOC) that have progressed to(More)
BACKGROUND Perioperative fluid therapy remains a highly debated topic. Its purpose is to maintain or restore effective circulating blood volume during the immediate perioperative period. Maintaining effective circulating blood volume and pressure are key components of assuring adequate organ perfusion while avoiding the risks associated with either organ(More)
In the aftermath of a mass disaster, standard care methods for treatment of burn injury will often not be available for all victims. A method of fluid resuscitation for burns that has largely been forgotten by contemporary burn experts is enteral resuscitation. We identified 12 studies with over 700 patients treated with enteral resuscitation, defined as(More)
Physiological compensatory mechanisms can mask the extent of hemorrhage in conscious mammals, which can be further complicated by individual tolerance and variations in hemorrhage onset and duration. We assessed the effect of hemorrhage rate on tolerance and early physiologic responses to hemorrhage in conscious sheep. Eight Merino ewes (37.4 ± 1.1 kg) were(More)
There is a need for accurate monitors that can track blood loss and report a patient's current physiological response. We explored phase coherence between components of the arterial blood pressure waveform for this purpose. Adult conscious sheep underwent 25 mL/kg BodyWeight hemorrhages over 15 minutes (14 total hemorrhage experiments) while continuous(More)

the pervasiveness of hybrids between Cx. pipiens and Cx. molestus in North America, but not in Europe and Af-rica, still remains to be determined. In southernmost Europe, we identified two populations with a few hybrid individuals, as well as populations with pure Cx. pipiens signatures and populations with a mix of pure Cx. pipiens and pure Cx. molestus(More)
