BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES This prospective, randomized, double blind study was designed to determine whether reduction in volume from 20 to 10 mL of ropivacaine 0.5% for ultrasound-guided interscalene block might decrease the incidence of diaphragmatic paresis and preserve pulmonary function. METHOD Thirty patients scheduled for arthroscopic shoulder(More)
BACKGROUND Sciatic nerve block when combined with femoral nerve block for total knee arthroplasty may provide superior analgesia but can produce footdrop, which may mask surgically induced peroneal nerve injury. In this prospective, randomized, observer-blinded study, we evaluated whether performing a selective tibial nerve block in the popliteal fossa(More)
The reliability of second-order rate constants for assessing microbial degradation kinetics in natural waters was examined by using three compounds that undergo hydrolytic degradation. The butoxyethyl ester of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid was studied in water samples from 31 sites, malathion was examined in water from 14 sites, and chlorpropham was(More)
Frequency response analysis is applied to analyze NIR-TRS spectra in a tissue model with a simulated thrombus. The value changes in parameters obtained from frequency response analysis are correlated with heterogeneity position in three dimensions. The goal of this research is to noninvasively localize deep vein thrombosis in the human leg through the use(More)
