Autistic children subjected to the stress of insulin-induced hypoglycemia showed slower recovery of blood glucose, and faster and intractable cortisol response in the 3 hours following the stress. These data suggest that autistic children over-react to this stressor and support clinical evidence of stress intolerance. It is suggested that this peculiarity(More)
Objective. To determine whether there is an association between smoking and the location of acute myocardial infarctions. Methods. Using a cohort from our hospital and published cohorts from Ireland, Uruguay, and Israel, we calculated odds of having an inferior wall as opposed to an anterior wall acute myocardial infarction among smokers and nonsmokers.(More)
It has been postulated that intrathoracic pressure increases may impair cardiac function by decreasing coronary flow. To determine whether altered coronary flow causes or results from change in cardiac function, we used 14 anesthetized dogs in propranolol-induced heart failure following atrioventricular node ablation. After thoracoabdominal binding, the(More)
Over many years the author and others have given theories for bubbles rising in line in a liquid. Theory has usually suggested that the bubbles will tend towards a stable distance apart, but experiments have often showed them pairing off and sometimes coalescing. However, existing theory seems not to deal adequately with the case of bubbles growing as they(More)
To determine whether the incidence of nausea and vomiting in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) varies with infarct location, we studied 180 patients who had been admitted to our hospital for ST-segment elevation AMI or AMI associated with left bundle branch block. The presenting symptoms (chest pain, nausea, and vomiting), initial(More)
Two daughters of phenotypically normal parents are described with severe proportional dwarfism with microcephaly, peculiar craniofacial anomalies, microtia, absent patellae, joint hyperextensibility, and other anomalies. Intrafamilial variability is minimal. This combination of anomalies has many similarities to the six cases previously described with the(More)
