A myoelectric signal, under isometric contraction of the muscle, is modelled as the output of a linear time-invariant system whose input is a stationary Poisson pulse train. The mean frequency γ of the Poisson pulse train and the transfer function of the linear system are evaluated using the spectral properties of the signal. An estimate of the number of(More)
The bioavailability of papaverine, administered as sustained release capsules, an elixir, and soft gelatin capsules, was studied with volunteers. Blood samples were assayed for papaverine, using a gas chromatographic method, following the administration of single 150 mg doses of papaverine HC1. The elixir and the soft gelatin capsule resulted in nearly(More)
The immunosuppressive effects of MPA (medroxyprogesterone acetate) were tested in clinical studies with laboratory dogs and rabbits. The laboratory procedures employed in the studies are explained and results are tabulated and graphed. 2 microscopic photographs illustrate the observed effects. MPA significantly prolonged the survival of dogs with renal(More)
BACKGROUND Community-acquired pneumonia is a frequent cause for hospital admission that results in significant costs to the health care system. The length of hospital stay (LOS) affects costs as well as risk for nosocomial medical complications. The purpose of this study was to test whether the addition of intensive clinical case management to clinical(More)
