BACKGROUND Movement in response to painful stimulation is the end point classically used to assess the potency of anesthetic agents. In this study, the ability of modeled propofol effect-site concentration to predict movement in volunteers during propofol/nitrous oxide anesthesia was tested, then it was compared with the predictive abilities of the(More)
Propofol is often used for sedation during regional anesthesia. We tested the hypothesis that propofol blood concentration, the Bispectral Index and the 95% spectral edge frequency predict suppression of learning during propofol/epidural anesthesia in volunteers. In addition, we tested the hypothesis that the Bispectral Index is linearly related to propofol(More)
This manuscript presents the results of a review of the effects of recombinant bovine somatotropin (rBST) on dairy cattle health, reproductive performance, and culling, that was carried out by an expert panel established by the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA). The panel was established by the CVMA in response to a request from Health Canada(More)
Chinchillas rendered hyperlipidemic by a 1% cholesterol diet or maintained on a normal diet were either exposed to a 2-octave bandpass noise (700-2,800 Hz for 220 min at 105 or 114 dB) or else not exposed to noise. The animals were assessed with tone-burst (2-16 kHz) elicited compound action potentials (CAP). Compared with normal diet animals, the(More)
BACKGROUND Thoracic ultrasonography (US) and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) analysis are antemortem methods used to identify the lung lesions associated with bovine respiratory disease (BRD). Accuracy of US and the cell distributions in BALF have not been characterized in calves with subclinical disease. OBJECTIVES To evaluate the accuracy of US and(More)
