Electrical stimulation of four specific acupuncture points (Liver 3, Stomach 36, Large Intestine 11, and the Groove for Lowering Blood Pressure) was examined in order to determine the effect of this stimulation on diastolic blood pressure in 10 subjects with diastolic hypertension. Subjects were randomly divided into two groups: (1) an Acu-ES group, which(More)
Multi-protocol Label Switching extends the IP destination-based routing protocols to provide new and scalable routing capabilities in connectionless networks using relatively simple packet forwarding mechanisms. MPLS networks carry traffic on virtual connections called label switched paths. This paper considers path selection and bandwidth allocation in(More)
Outbreaks of Acinetobacter baumannii demonstrating multiple antibiotic resistance, including meropenem resistance, have been described as severe therapeutic problems. Here we describe a monoclonal outbreak of infection and colonization with multidrug-resistant A. baumannii over a two-month period. Resistance to meropenem was mediated by expression of a(More)
This study compared the effect of the dynamic ankle foot orthos is (DAFO) and the Utley foot orthosis (UFO) on foot loading patterns in five hemiplegic subjects. An A-B-B-A single subject design was used. Foot loading data were collected in three sessions, which were separated by a two-week wearing time for each orthosis. The DAFO produced significantly(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM To assess differences in the early outcome after complete arterial myocardial revascularization with (ONCAB) or without cardiopulmonary bypass (OPCAB). METHODS Out of 870 consecutive CABG procedures 58 OPCAB and 91 ONCAB patients receiving exclusive arterial grafts were analyzed. OPCAB patients had more single-vessel (p < 0.0001), less(More)
Several studies show that the application of oral glucocorticoids in patients with active RA leads to fast resolution of disease activity [1]. Treatment strategies that include the initial application of glucocorticoids seem to have a favourable outcome in terms of long-term control of disease activity [2]. Moreover, when tapered down to low doses,(More)
Our objective was to assess differences in early outcome after completely arterial myocardial revascularization with (on-pump coronary artery bypass grafting or ONCAB) or without cardiopulmonary bypass (off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting or OPCAB). Fifty-eight OPCAB and 91 ONCAB patients receiving exclusively arterial grafts were analyzed. OPCAB(More)
USE OF PROPOFOL FOR SEDATION IN YOUNG CHILDREN Use of propofol for sedation for adults in the ICU is accepted as a good standard. Propofol is registered for use in children of 3 years and older. We used propofol in children who were intubated for epiglottitis or laryngotracheabronchitis and were spontaneous breathing and for children who were on mechanical(More)
