Using in vivo 31P NMR spectroscopy, the authors compared the NMR spectra of the flexor muscles of the forearm from 13 humans characterized as MH susceptible on the basis of in vitro caffeine/halothane contracture tests with those from 25 normal controls. The levels of phosphocreatine (PCr), inorganic phosphate (Pi), and ATP during rest, graded exercise, and(More)
Malignant hyperthermia (MH) is a potentially fatal, anesthetic-induced syndrome. Currently, the only accurate means of diagnosing susceptibility to this syndrome is the testing of biopsied skeletal muscle for its contracture response to halothane and caffeine. A less invasive means of diagnosis is needed. The authors previously reported that MH-susceptible(More)
The preliminary focus of this investigation is to conduct an agent-based modeling approach to particulate entrainment on a suite of pathogens endemic to the southwest region of the United States, negatively affecting agricultural and public health. An application of numerical modeling techniques will be employed to ascertain the conditions ideal for aerial(More)
[1] Enceladus’s south polar thermal anomaly and water‐ rich plumes suggest the existence of a subsurface ocean, which is overlain by an ice shell of uncertain thickness. Our objective is to constrain Enceladus’s ice shell thickness, through assessment of tidally driven Coulomb failure of Enceladus’s tiger stripe faults. We find that thin to moderate ice(More)
