STUDY OBJECTIVES Sleep apnea often is associated with impotence and/or erectile dysfunction (ED). The purpose of this study was to test whether a presentation for ED confers a pretest probability for obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS). DESIGN A self-report survey for sleep complaints was conducted in consecutive male patients (>16 years of(More)
To graduate students accustomed to working with the numerical solution of partial differential equations using finite difference, finite elements, spectral methods, etc. where time generally progresses in evenly-spaced small intervals, switching paradigms to a discrete-event simulation environment is not only counterintuitive but is also difficult. The(More)
Ein 60jähriger Patient wird mit retrosternalen Schmerzen stationär aufgenommen. Die Beschwerden haben drei Wochen vorher begonnen. Ansonsten ist das Allgemeinbefinden gut. Röntgenologisch fällt eine Verbreiterung des linken Hilus und eine rundherdartige Verschattung im linken Lungenoberlappen auf. Echokardiographisch imponiert ein großer Tumor im linken(More)
THREE LINES OF PUBLISHED WORK SUGGEST AN ASSOCATION BETWEEM IMPOTENCE OR ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION (ED) AND SLEEP APNEA. First, there are collections of patients in which reports of impotence are found to be present at the time of diagnosis of sleep apnea;1,2 one study reported that symptoms of impotence are improved in 40% of patients after treatment of sleep(More)
Screening for hereditary medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) includes both calcitonin stimulation tests and DNA analysis. Positive results of these diagnostic procedures are indicators for the presence of neoplastic C-cell hyperplasia or an asymptomatic MTC. Thyroidectomy and lymphadenectomy of the first compartment are mandatory in both conditions even in(More)
Particular applications require analysts to estimate plant throughput from external observables via inverse modeling techniques. For example, auditors, law enforcement personnel, and financial planners might need to perform these types of analyses. Researchers at the SimCenter at The University of Tennessee Chattanooga have elected to model several simple(More)
