Bubbles in rat adipose tissue were studied at 1 bar after decompression from an exposure to air at 3.3 bars (absolute) for 4 h. During air breathing the bubbles grew throughout the observation period. During heliox (80:20) breathing they shrank and eventually disappeared from view. If the breathing gas was changed from heliox back to air or to N2O-O2(More)
Our purpose was to examine the behavior of air bubbles in three non-lipid tissues (skeletal muscle, tendon, and the anterior chamber of the eye) during breathing of air, helium-oxygen (heliox, 80:20), or oxygen. Air bubbles were injected into skeletal muscle or tendon in rats after decompression from a 1-h air exposure at 3.5 atm abs (355 kPa) or into the(More)
A method is described which permits continuous estimation of adipose tissue blood flow (ATBF) in anesthetized female rats. The method is basesd on continuous monitoring of the elimination of 133Xe after labeling of the animal by intraperitoneal injection. From 2 to 6 h after the beginning of the elimination period close to 100% of the measured activity is(More)
The fate of bubbles formed in tissues during decompression to altitude after diving or due to accidental loss of cabin pressure during flight has only been indirectly inferred from theoretical modeling and clinical observations with noninvasive bubble-measuring techniques of intravascular bubbles. In this report we visually followed the in vivo resolution(More)
Injected air bubbles in spinal white matter in the rat were studied at 1 bar after decompression from an exposure to air at 3.1 bar (absolute) for 4 h. During air breathing all injected bubbles grew for the first 2 h of the observation period. Thereafter three of nine bubbles began to shrink and one of them disappeared. During breathing of heliox (80:20)(More)
A longitudinal study design was used to assess the management, chemical composition of cows’ milk and quantify the microbial load of raw milk produced at farm level. Data were collected between December 2010 and September 2011 in Morogoro municipality. Milk samples were collected once every month and analysed for butter fat (BF), crude protein (CP), total(More)
We studied the effect of SF6-O2 breathing on air bubbles injected into skeletal muscle, rat-tail tendon, the anterior chamber of the eye, and spinal white matter. Decompression-induced nitrogen bubbles in adipose tissue were studied during breathing of SF6-O2 (80/20). The results of SF6-O2 breathing are compared with previous experiments using heliox(More)
A rat model of spinal decompression sickness (DCS) allows study of spinal cord function for at least 3 h after decompression to 1 atm abs (101 kPa) after an exposure to air at 3.8 atm abs (385 kPa) for 1 h. During these 3 h, spinal evoked potentials (SEPs) elicited by peroneal nerve stimulation may be reduced or disappear, and histologic lesions in the(More)
We applied the concept of "phase synchronization" from nonlinear dynamics to the complex relationship between intracranial pressure (ICP) and arterial blood pressure (ABP) signals. This method is based on multiresolution wavelet transform (MRWT) in which the signals are divided into different frequency bands. We examined ICP and ABP signals from(More)
A study was conducted on 50 steers (183 ± 4 kg initial body weight, 3 years of age) to assess effects of days in feedlot on performance, carcass characteristics and meat quality of Tanzania shorthorn zebu (TSZ) cattle with the aim of determining appropriate finishing period. Periods were 0 day (P0), 25 days (P25), 50 days (P50), 75 days (P75) and 100 days(More)
