A study has been made to determine which methods of numerical integration require the least computation time for a given amount of truncation error when applied to a particular system of ordinary differential equations where function evaluations are relatively trivial. Recent methods due to Butcher and Gear are compared with classic Runge-Kutta,(More)
BACKGROUND There is little systematically derived evidence-based guidance to inform plasma transfusion decisions. To address this issue, the AABB commissioned the development of clinical practice guidelines to help direct appropriate transfusion of plasma. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS A systematic review (SR) and meta-analysis of randomized and observational(More)
The initial findings from user trials convinced us that a fully integrated solution on a smart phone platform is the ultimate design objective. A smart phone is a perfect I/O and capture device for applications we're targeting. We estimate that the reader/writer will share 80 percent of a wireless local-area-network (WLAN) system, so the silicon real estate(More)
BACKGROUND Although vaccination of infants against Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) invasive infections is effective and has been routinely available in Canada since 1992, cases of the disease continue to occur. We were interested in determining whether recent cases of Hib infection reflected progressive loss of protection with time since vaccination,(More)
Acknowledgements It takes many players to succeed in any project. This 2000 annual report of the Canadian Paediatric Surveillance Program (CPSP) highlights the many contributions that have resulted in our program's success. The key to the CPSP's strength is the participation of Canadian paediatricians, subspecialists and other health-care providers in the(More)
The Shared Wireless Aaccess Protocol (SWAP) specification for wireless voice and data networking within the home will enable a new class of mobile consumer devices that draw from the power and content of the Internet and the Home PC. If cable modems and xDSL represent the "last mile" access to the home, then HomeRFTM's mission with SWAP could be called the(More)
Cortical and outer medullary collecting duct segments were dissected from human kidneys and perfused in vitro. The transepithelial potential difference was measured and found to be lumen positive +6.8 +/- 0.6 mV (n= 20). This lumen-positive potential difference was inhibited by ouabain and furosemide but not by acetazolamide. Replacement of chloride in bath(More)
