Six workers exposed as bystanders to heated triglycidyl isocyanurate (TGIC) developed occupational asthma confirmed by serial peak expiratory flow measurement and Oasys analysis. Specific inhalation challenge testing resulted in late or dual asthmatic reactions to heated TGIC in four of four tested and was negative in three control asthmatics. One worker(More)
This paper describes and validates a new Cumulative Pressure-Time Index (CPT) which takes into account both duration and degree of cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) derangement and determines critical thresholds for CPP, in a paediatric head injury dataset. Sixty-six head-injured children, with invasive minute-to-minute intracranial pressure (ICP) and blood(More)
