Results of four electrical stimulation (ES) studies were summarized to demonstrate the impact of different ES parameters on pH decline patterns in postmortem M. longissimus thoracis et lumborum. Postmortem pH decline was modeled as a non-linear function of time, and estimates of minimum obtainable pH, pH decline rates, and time to reach pH 6·0 were compared(More)
Metal homeostasis and resistance in bacteria is maintained by a panel of metal-sensing transcriptional regulators that collectively control transition metal availability and mediate resistance to heavy metal xenobiotics, including As(III), Cd(II), Pb(II), and Hg(II). The ArsR family constitutes a superfamily of metal sensors that appear to conform to the(More)
Medical treatment of ectopic pregnancy with methotrexate has become the standard of care in many areas of the U.S. Rupture of ectopic pregnancy after medical treatment presents a diagnostic challenge to the Emergency Physician. We review a series of 11 patients with ectopic pregnancy treated with methotrexate who then required surgical treatment for rupture.
BACKGROUND Simulation training and competency-based assessment are the evolving standard for surgical education. The Focused Assessment Diagnostic Echocardiography (FADE) examination is a bedside, limited transthoracic ultrasound to assess cardiac function, anatomy, and volume status. FADE can be used to noninvasively evaluate and guide resuscitation of(More)
BACKGROUND Emergency physicians (EPs) are expected to deliver quality care while maintaining high levels of efficiency and productivity as measured by the relative value unit (RVU). OBJECTIVES We sought to determine whether academic EPs with higher RVUs spend less time at the bedside than their colleagues. METHODS This was a prospective, observational,(More)
INTRODUCTION Quality resident education in point-of-care ultrasound (POC US) is becoming increasingly important in emergency medicine (EM); however, the best methods to evaluate competency in graduating residents has not been established. We sought to design and implement a rigorous assessment of image acquisition and interpretation in POC US in a cohort of(More)
One hundred twenty-five granulocyte transfusions were given concurrently with amphotericin B to 31 granulocytopenic patients with acute leukemia during a four year period. Twenty-six patients had culture-documented, and 5 had presumed fungal infections; pulmonary infiltrates were present in 26 patient courses. Eight patients developed pulmonary(More)
To evaluate the incidence of thrombocytopenia and bleeding among patients with solid tumors treated intensively with chemotherapy, the records of 1274 patients treated between 1972 and 1980 on protocols known to produce significant myelosuppression were reviewed. Three hundred one patients with solid tumors (breast, lung, melanoma, sarcoma, primary brain,(More)
