A new method of sampling based on the extraction of blood from the cavernous sinus of the dura mater has been assessed in hunted wild boar. Blood from 139 animals was obtained by two different extraction methods: the harvesting from thoracic cavity (TC) and intracavernous venipuncture (IV). Sera obtained by the IV method had higher volume (mean 2.85 vs 1.85… (More)
This article analyzes methods to reduce the exposure of personnel to high energy arcing faults to levels below 40 cal/cm and also defines a method to determine the limits of coordination among protective devices to identify where the selectivity could be jeopardized.
A comparative study was carried out to assess the usefulness of the blood extraction method by endocranial venous sinuses (EVS) puncture in hunted wild ruminants. Blood samples from 245 ruminants, including 76 red deer, 89 fallow deer, and 59 European mouflon, were taken from thoracic cavity (TC), and from 21 Pyrenean chamois by intracardiac (IC) puncture.… (More)
Franco, Juan. Rapid prototyping and design of a fast random number generator. Information in the form of online multimedia, bank accounts, or password usage for diverse applications needs some form of security. The core feature of many security systems is the generation of true random or pseudorandom numbers. Hence reliable generators of such numbers are… (More)
Retrospective analysis of registry data on angiographically confirmed stent thromboses recorded between 1998 and 2007. In total, 58 cases of stent thrombosis occurred, of which 15 were in drug-eluting stents. Fourteen (24.1%) stent thromboses were acute, 27 (46.6%) were subacute, 9 (15.5%) were late, and 8 (13.8%) were very late. The most common clinical… (More)
