Developmental changes in cerebral autoregulatory capacity in the fetal sheep parietal cortex
We validated laser Doppler flowmetry (LDF) for long‐term monitoring and detection of acute changes of local cerebral blood flow (lCBF) in chronically instrumented fetal sheep. Using LDF, we estimatedExpand

Progressive Adaptation in Physical Activity and Neuromuscular Performance during 520d Confinement
To understand whether prolonged confinement results in reductions in physical activity and adaptation in the musculoskeletal system, six subjects were measured during 520 d isolation in the Mars500Expand

Effects of betamethasone administration to the fetal sheep in late gestation on fetal cerebral blood flow
1 Glucocorticoid administration to women at risk of preterm delivery to accelerate fetal lung maturation has become standard practice. Antenatal glucocorticoids decrease the incidence ofExpand

Prevention of bone loss during 56 days of strict bed rest by side-alternating resistive vibration exercise.
Bed rest is a recognized model for muscle atrophy and bone loss in space flight and in clinical medicine. We hypothesized that whole body vibration in combination with resistive exercise (RVE) wouldExpand

Intra-articular injections of high-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid have biphasic effects on joint inflammation and destruction in rat antigen-induced arthritis
To assess the potential use of hyaluronic acid (HA) as adjuvant therapy in rheumatoid arthritis, the anti-inflammatory and chondroprotective effects of HA were analysed in experimental ratExpand

Lung perfusion, shunt fraction, and oxygenation during one-lung ventilation in pigs: the effects of desflurane, isoflurane, and propofol.
OBJECTIVE To study how desflurane, isoflurane, and propofol affect pulmonary perfusion, shunt fraction, and systemic oxygenation during one-lung ventilation (OLV) in vivo. DESIGN Prospective animalExpand

The Effects of Increasing Concentrations of Isoflurane and Desflurane on Pulmonary Perfusion and Systemic Oxygenation During One-Lung Ventilation in Pigs
During one-lung ventilation (OLV), hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV) reduces venous admixture and attenuates the decrease in arterial oxygen tension by diverting blood from the nonventilatedExpand

Percutaneous transtracheal ventilation: effects of a new oxygen flow modulator on oxygenation and ventilation in pigs compared with a hand triggered emergency jet injector.
The application of percutaneous transtracheal jet ventilation for emergency ventilation depends on special equipment which is often not available outside the operating room. The oxygen flow modulatorExpand

One-lung flooding for video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery in animal experiments on pigs — oxygenation and intrapulmonary shunt
Unilateral flooding of the lung after intubation with a double-lumen tube makes intraoperative sonography of the lung during video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery possible. After flooding with 15Expand
