Poor assessment of hydration status during hemodialysis can lead to under- or over-hydration in patients with consequences of increased morbidity and mortality. In current practice, fluid management is largely based on clinical assessments to estimate dry weight (normal hydration body weight). However, hemodialysis patients usually have co-morbidities that(More)
In this paper, we describe and assess feasibility of instrumentation and algorithms for detecting bleeding due to hemorrhagic strokes and traumatic brain injury using electrical impedance tomography, a novel biomedical diagnostic modality in which the body is probed noninvasively with generally imperceptible alternating currents applied in patterns to a set(More)
<italic>Objective:</italic> In electrical impedance tomography (EIT), we apply patterns of currents on a set of electrodes at the external boundary of an object, measure the resulting potentials at the electrodes, and, given the aggregate dataset, reconstruct the complex conductivity and permittivity within the object. It is possible to maximize sensitivity(More)
Tripulse is a novel orientation/attitude estimation system that is designed to accurately estimate the orientation of a satellite borne phased array relative to one or more earth stations. This system has an accuracy potential that is signi cantly better than conventional Earth-Moon-Sun attitude sensors. Tripulse has conceptual similarities to amplitude(More)
A single aptamer bioreceptor layer was formed using a common streptavidin-biotin immobilization strategy and employed for 100-365 bind/release cycles. Chemically induced aptamer unfolding and release of its bound target was accomplished using alkaline solutions with high salt concentrations or deionized (DI) water. The use of DI water scavenged from the(More)
