BACKGROUND Blood pressure (BP) monitoring with arterial waveform display requires an arterial cannula. We evaluated a new noninvasive device, Vasotrac (Medwave, Arden Hills, MN) that provides BP measurements approximately every 12-15 beats and displays pulse rate and a calibrated arterial waveform for each BP measurement. METHODS Surgical and critically(More)
PURPOSE To assess the effect of using a lossy Joint Photographic Experts Group standard for wavelet image compression, JPEG2000, on pulmonary nodule detection at low-dose computed tomography (CT). MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred sets of lung CT data ("cases") were compressed to 30:1, 20:1, and 10:1 levels by using a wavelet-based JPEG2000 method,(More)
BACKGROUND Halogenated anesthetics potentiate the positive inotropic effects of alpha- and beta-adrenoceptor stimulations, but their interactions with dobutamine remain unknown. METHODS The effects of halothane, isoflurane, sevoflurane, and desflurane (1 and 2 minimum alveolar concentration) on the inotropic responses induced by dobutamine (10(-8)-10(-4)(More)
