OBJECTIVES AVE0118 is a novel blocker of the K(+) channels K(v)1.5 and K(v)4.3 which are the molecular basis for the human cardiac ultrarapid delayed rectifier potassium current (I(Kur)) and the transient outward current (I(to)). The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of AVE0118 on atrial refractoriness (ERP), left atrial vulnerability(More)
To assess functional cortical organization in newborns during quiet sleep we investigated instantaneous interhemispheric coherences in six healthy full-term subjects using linked ear reference and average reference. Tracé alternant was the most frequent EEG pattern during quiet sleep of these newborns and consists of burst and interburst periods. The(More)
The definition of an electroencephalographic (EEG)-based brain dysmaturity index that could allow automatic detection of neonates who deviate from expected ontogenetic patterns is proposed. The investigation was performed in a group of 94 term and preterm infants (28-112 weeks postconceptional age). For each neonate, one continuous two-channel EEG of 1-6(More)
Age dependent EEG signatures were detected in the EEG of 71 neonates of 28-100 weeks of conceptional age (CA). Using the new method presented, neonates were automatically classified in three age groups (28-35 weeks CA), (36-40 weeks CA) and (41-100 weeks CA). Analysis was performed employing relative distance functions for the complete frequency spectra of(More)
Neonatal heart rate and its interaction with respiration were computerized by spectral and coherence analysis (FFT) to differentiate healthy newborns (n = 9) from newborns with mild neonatal risk (n = 20). An increased mean heart rate and decreased total variability have been found in newborns-at-risk. Respiratory Sinus Arrhythmia is diminished in(More)
In a study on 66 newborns and infants, factor VII activity and factor VII related antigen were investigated on 110 occasions. A normal range was calculated by testing plasma from 12 healthy male volunteers at various dilutions. Most of the values in the newborns and infants fell within this range but 18.2% of the factor VII proteins showed a significantly(More)
Best parameters of power and coherence spectra of heart rate fluctuations (HR) and respiration rhythms (RR) were established to differentiate sleep states in healthy newborns and newborns-at-risk by means of multivariate variance and discriminant analysis. Nine healthy newborns and 20 newborns with low risk features were examined polygraphically.(More)
Penile sympathic skin response (PSSR) was measured in 20 normal patients and in 46 patients with erectile dysfunction (ED). PSSR could be registered in 80% of normal patients. The latencies were 1,100-1,600 ms. In patients with ED, latencies were 1,240-3,640 ms. A reproducible normal latency of PSSR (< 1,600 ms) indicates a normal sympathic innervation of(More)
OBJECTIVES A correlation between sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and apnea has been discussed in a variety of studies. We analyzed polysomnographic data in 51 infants and investigated correlations between the manifestation of apneas and changes in EEG pattern. METHODS Measurements were performed by means of the commercial polysomnographic device(More)
Factor VIII procoagulant activity and factor VIII related antigen were examined in 20 full-term and preterm newborn infants during the first days of life. The control group involved 15 adults volunteers. Factor VIII activity was estimated by a one-stage test and factor VIII related antigen was determined by immunelectrophoresis according to Laurell, using(More)
