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)
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)
Using radiography, inseminating syringe tip location and inseminate distribution in excised bovine reproductive tracts were described for 20 professional and 20 herdsman-inseminators using .5- and .25-ml French straws. Inseminations (20 by each participant) were performed in tracts placed on a device that stimulated the anatomical position of the(More)
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)
Sixty test forages (alfalfa, timothy, bromegrass, and orchardgrass mixtures), of differing cuttings and maturities, were harvested as hay in each of 2 yr (30/yr) from three locations. Each of the 60 hays was chopped and fed to four growing sheep to determine voluntary intake. The duration of the trial was 2 yr with five experimental periods per year. In(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)
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)
