BACKGROUND High levels of exhaled carbon monoxide (eCO) are a marker of airway or lung inflammation. We investigated whether hypo- or hyperventilation can affect measured values. METHODS Ten healthy volunteers were trained to achieve sustained end-tidal CO2 (etCO(2)) concentrations of 30 (hyperventilation), 40 (normoventilation), and 50 mmHg(More)
Chronic disorders of the musculoskeletal system, particularly low back pain (LBP), are increasing and represent a social and economic problem of growing importance, especially if correlated with working conditions. Health care workers are at higher risk of developing LBP during work shifts in the hospital. The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence(More)
The study of particles containing heavy quarks is currently a major topic in High Energy Physics. In this paper. neural net trigger algorithms are developed to distinguish heavy quark (signal) events from light quark (background) events in a fixed target experiment. The event tracks which are parametrized by the impact parameter D and the angle @ of the(More)
A bacteriological assessment of flexible bronchoscopes that were stored after a reprocessing procedure was performed to determine whether reprocessing removes microbiological contamination and whether the instruments could be used safely after extended storage without repeating the disinfection before bronchoscopy. The microbiological quality of manual and(More)
