BACKGROUND The performance of anesthetic procedures before operating room entry (e.g., with either general or regional anesthesia [RA] induction rooms) should decrease anesthesia-controlled time in the operating room. The authors retrospectively studied the associations between anesthesia techniques and anesthesia-controlled time, evaluating one surgeon(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVES (1) To introduce anesthesia clinical pathways as a management tool to improve the quality of care; (2) to use the Procedural Times Glossary published by the Association of Anesthesia Clinical Directors (AACD) as a template for data collection and analysis; and (3) to determine the effects of anesthesia clinical pathways on surgical(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVES (1) To incorporate regional anesthesia options for common outpatient orthopedic surgery into clinical pathways; (2) to use the clinical pathway format and the Procedural Times Glossary published by the Association of Anesthesia Clinical Directors (AACD) as management tools to measure postoperative same-day surgery processes and discharge(More)
We present the first CMOS-only receiver chip for NMR-applications at 300 MHz. The system consists of an on-chip reception coil, a tuning-capacitor, a downconversion-mixer and a low-frequency gain-stage as well as biasing and offset-compensation circuitry. It has an input referred voltage noise density of 0.7 nV/√Hz and a gain of 75 dB. The power(More)
We present the first single-chip array of integrated NMR receivers for parallel spectroscopy and imaging. The array, optimized for operation at 300 MHz, is composed of eight separate channels, with each channel consisting of a detection coil, a tuning capacitor, a low noise amplifier and a 50 ohm buffer. As all the integrated electronics are placed(More)
We report on the design, fabrication, and characterization of an integrated detector for electron spin resonance spectroscopy operating at 27 GHz. The microsystem, consisting of an LC-oscillator and a frequency division module, is integrated onto a single silicon chip using a conventional complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor technology. The achieved room(More)
We present a fully integrated CMOS receiver for micro-magnetic resonance imaging together with a custom-made micro-gradient system. The receiver is designed for an operating frequency of 300 MHz. The chip consists of an on-chip detection coil and tuning capacitor as well as a low-noise amplifier and a quadrature downconversion mixer with corresponding(More)
We present a fully integrated detector suitable for active tracking of interventional devices in MR-guided interventions. The single-chip microsystem consists of a detection coil, a tuning capacitor, an intermediate frequency downconversion receiver, and a phase-locked-loop-based frequency synthesizer. Thanks to the integrated mixer, the chip output stage(More)
In this paper we present a novel architecture for phase-locked loop (PLL) based high-speed demodulation of frequency-modulated (FM) atomic force microscopy (AFM) signals. In our approach, we use single-sideband (SSB) frequency upconversion to translate the AFM signal from the position sensitive detector to a fixed intermediate frequency (IF) of 10 MHz. In(More)
