The objectives of this study were to determine directly if mounting activity in dairy cattle varied as a function of stage of the estrous cycle and to determine if mounting by cows could be stimulated when novel estrous cows were introduced. Detector cows were normally cycling. Estrous cows were ovariectomized and injected with estradiol cyprionate and(More)
We consider the problem of modeling point-level spatial count data with a large number of zeros. We develop a model that is compatible with scientific assumptions about the underlying data generating process. We utilize a two-stage spatial generalized linear mixed model framework for the counts, modeling incidence, resulting in 0-1 outcomes, and prevalence,(More)
High dose narcotic anesthesia with fentanyl or morphine is not associated with significant direct myocardial depression. Morphine is reported to produce arteriolar dilatation and a decrease in SVR (probably due to histamine release) while fentanyl is not. Studies were undertaken to determine if morphine or fentanyl caused histamine release; if such a(More)
BACKGROUND Nasal transmucosal midazolam is effective for premedication of pediatric patients; however, 61-74% of these patients cry at nasal drug administration. Sublingual benzodiazepines, including midazolam, are effective in adults. The current blinded randomized study compared acceptance of and behavioral responses to transmucosal midazolam administered(More)
The cardiopulmonary and anaesthetic responses of nine healthy volunteers, breathing concentrations of 1-4% halothane in oxygen, were studied. Supine fasting subjects breathing room air exhaled to residual volume and then inhaled a vital capacity breath of 1, 2, 3 or 4% halothane in oxygen. After a breath-hold of 30-90 s they exhaled and then breathed(More)
Two experiments were conducted to evaluate the fate of sperm following uterine insemination. In Exp. I, five pairs of Holstein cows were inseminated with egg yolk-Tris extended semen (approximately 1.0 X 10(9) sperm; .5 ml) from five ejaculates from a single bull that had high levels (approximately 70%) of morphologically abnormal sperm. Cows were(More)
Nasal administration of sufentanil or midazolam is effective for preinduction of pediatric patients, but there are no data on which to base a choice between them. This blinded randomized study compares behavioral and physiologic responses to sedation with one of these medications followed by inhalation or intravenous induction. Ninety-five patients aged(More)
Sections of synovium from 393 operations on diseased joints were re-examined without knowledge of the clinical findings. Specimens were scored for each of 37 histopathologic features. Independently, patients were assigned to one of 10 diagnostic groups after review of all available clinical data. Computer analysis revealed statistically significant(More)
The post-hatch ontogeny of hepatic GH binding and its relationship to GH plasma profile characteristics in male and female turkeys of slow- (RBC-2) and fast-growing (F; selected from RBC-2) genetic lines were determined. Specific binding of 125I-labelled recombinant chicken GH to crude hepatic membrane preparations (100,000 g pellet) was determined at 2, 4,(More)
