The objective of this study was to determine the upper thermal limits of Arctic cod Boreogadus saida by measuring the response of maximum heart rate (f(Hmax)) to acute warming. One set of fish were tested in a field laboratory in Cambridge Bay (CB), Nunavut (north of the Arctic Circle), and a second set were tested after air transport to and 6 month(More)
Cholesterol embolism after left heart catheterisation by the femoral approach was diagnosed in seven men (mean age 59.6 years) out of a total of 4587 catheterisations. Diabetes was present in four patients, systemic hypertension in three, and signs of extensive atherosclerosis in six; five patients were taking anticoagulant drugs. Acute pain in the legs or(More)
Metabolic and hormonal effects of muscular exercise were studied in juvenile-type diabetics in relation to the prevailing degree of metabolic control and compared with those in healthy control subjects. Two groups of diabetic patients, one in moderate metabolic control and one in ketosis due to insulin withdrawal, were subjected to a 3 hour bicycle(More)
HLA-A and B antigens were determined in 112 patients with insulin-dependent juvenile onset diabetes mellitus, who could be subdivided into "non" and "high responder" to insulin. The data revealed a trend of an association of these diabetes subgroups with only one of the diabetes-associated antigens HLA-B8 and HLA-BW15 and indicated the existence of at least(More)
Blood amino acid concentrations were determined in the postabsorptive state in nine patients with insulin excess (functioning insulinomas), nine juvenile-type diabetics with insulin deficiency (diabetic ketosis due to insulin withdrawal), six juvenile diabetics in moderate metabolic control, and five healthy control subjects. Blood branched-chain amino acid(More)
Work in swine and poultry units is associated with exposure to significant levels of organic dust and endotoxins with the highest concentrations found in poultry houses, whereas values found in dairy and in cattle farming are much lower. Corresponding to this is an excess of work-related respiratory symptoms in swine farmers. A dose-response relationship(More)
In this open multicenter study, 156 patients with acute myocardial infarction received 30 U of anistreplase intravenously over 5 minutes within 4 hours of the onset of chest pain. The patency of the infarct-related vessel was determined by coronary angiography 90 minutes after anistreplase treatment, and also 24 hours after treatment, in patients with a(More)
Radical surgery of the nose and paranasal sinuses was performed in 56 patients as a last resort for severe recurrent treatment-resistant rhinosinusitis. Surgery consists of removal of all walls between the nasal fossa and the paranasal sinuses, creating one cavity. All patients were permanently relieved of sinusitis and nasal obstruction, and other symptoms(More)
Wild adult and reared larval Boreogadus saida were acclimated to 3·5° C before testing their cardiac response to acute warming. Heart rate transition temperatures during warming were similar for adult and larval hearts, except that the maximum temperature for heart rate was 3° C warmer for adults. Thus, in a rapidly warming Arctic Ocean, the upper(More)
