1. The patterns of on-going synaptic events recorded intracellularly in neurones of superior cervical ganglia (SCG)of anaesthetized female rats were analysed by constructing inter-event interval histograms, autocorrelograms, ln-survivor curves and histograms triggered by the arterial pulse wave and by the intercostal EMG. 2. In 11/12 cells with on-going(More)
1. Synaptic events evoked by brief noxious cutaneous stimuli were recorded in sympathetic neurones in the superior cervical ganglion of anaesthetized rats. 2. On-going excitatory synaptic potentials (ESPs) and/or action potentials (APs) were recorded in 69% of neurones at mean frequencies that varied from 0.01 to 6.3 Hz in different cells. From histograms(More)
PURPOSE Stimulation of afferent neurons from the urinary tract can evoke powerful cardiovascular reflexes in animals and in humans. Here we tested whether and to what extent postganglionic sympathetic neurons projecting to the head and neck are involved in these reflexes. MATERIALS AND METHODS In adult anesthetized female Wistar rats, reflex changes in(More)
It is probable that both genetic and environmental factors play some part in the aetiology of most cases of degenerative hip disease. Geneticists have identified some single gene disorders of the hip, but have had difficulty in identifying the genetics of many of the common causes of degenerative hip disease. The heterogeneity of the phenotypes(More)
BACKGROUND Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) is a fractionated blood product whose off-label use for treating a variety of conditions, including spontaneous recurrent miscarriage, has continued to grow in recent years. Its high costs and short supply necessitate improved guidance on its appropriate applications. OBJECTIVE We conducted a systematic review(More)
Evidence to support improved outcomes with early ambulation is strong in medical literature. Yet, critically ill continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) patients remain tethered to their beds by devices delivering supportive therapy. The University of Michigan Adult CRRT Committee identified this deficiency and sought to change it. There was no guidance(More)
Advances in technology and pharmacology have enabled gastrointestinal endoscopists to expand the diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities of the specialty. Research into the impact of the endoscopy environment on patient stress, acknowledgement of the various patient coping styles, development and deployment of procedural preparative programs and information(More)
