OBJECTIVE These studies evaluated the feasibility of using oral prolonged-release oxycodone/naloxone (OXN PR) for the management of acute postoperative pain. METHODS Three studies were undertaken: (i) the analgesic efficacy of OXN PR was compared with prolonged-release oxycodone (OXY PR) in patients with knee arthroplasty in an immediate postoperative(More)
The Nymble compiler system accepts C code, annotated by the user with partitioning directives, and translates the indicated parts into hardware accelerators for execution on FPGA-based reconfigurable computers. The interface logic between the remaining software parts and the accelerators is automatically created, taking into account details such as cache(More)
We describe extending the hardware/software co-compiler Nymble to automatically generate multi-threaded (SIMT) hardware accelerators. In contrast to prior work that simply duplicated complete compute units for each thread, Nymble-MT reuses the actual computation elements, and adds just the required data storage and context switching logic. On the CHStone(More)
The simulation of biomedical models often requires the numerical integration of ordinary differential equation systems, a computationally intensive task that can be accelerated well by deeply-pipelined FPGA-based accelerators. Since the main design target is throughput, larger FPGA devices can easily be exploited by scaling-up the number of parallel(More)
Parents of 100 paediatric patients hospitalized in the Gondar College of Medical Sciences were interviewed on their knowledge of and experience with indigenous medicine in the region. The result has provided an orienting review of methods used for common childhood disorders and attitudes towards traditional and modern medicine, resp. and some understanding(More)
In high-level synthesis, loop pipelining is a technique to improve the throughput and utilisation of hardware datapaths by starting new loop iterations after a fixed amount of time, called the initiation interval (II), allowing to overlap subsequent iterations. The problem is to find the smallest II and corresponding operation schedule that fulfils all data(More)
