We report the case of a boy with achondroplasia and i(21q) Down syndrome. Besides craniofacial features typical in Down syndrome, the skeletal findings of achondroplasia dominate the clinical picture. The diagnosis of Down syndrome was based on clinical features and the cytogenetic finding of i(21q) trisomy 21. The diagnosis of achondroplasia was based on(More)
Fifteen adult New Zealand white rabbits were used to determine if exogenous surfactant immediately improves oxygenation in experimental meconium aspiration syndrome (MAS). They were ventilated with 100% O2 before insufflating 3 mL/kg of 40% filtered meconium. Arterial blood gases, dynamic lung compliance (CLdyn) and resistance (RL) were monitored for 2(More)
Although most authors recommend charcoal hemoperfusion (CHP) for the removal of carbamazepine (CBZ) in acute CBZ poisoning, we present a case where we had the chance to compare CHP with hemodialysis (HD). A 50-year-old white man with normal renal function ingested an unknown quantity of CBZ with lithium. He was dialyzed for 3 h and his serum CBZ level was(More)
Histological surveys of the kidneys of two poeciliid fishes, the Amazon molly Poecilia formosa and the guppy P. reticulatus, throughout their lifespans showed no regular aging trends. Few kidney lesions were found in the Amazon molly until very late in life, 60 months or more, when obsolescent glomeruli and dilated renal tubules occurred. Guppies showed(More)
Since systemic dexamethasone therapy for bronchopulmonary dysplasia is associated with numerous side effects, a simple system to deliver aerosolized beclomethasone dipropionate (BDP) directly to the lungs of intubated neonates was developed and evaluated in vitro. The system consists of a self-inflating bag, metered dose inhaler (MDI) adapter, Tygon spacer(More)
This paper describes the use of client-side JavaScript and server-side Perl to implement instrumentation for the collection and preprocessing of educational survey data over the World Wide Web. It discusses the advantages and disadvantages of these technologies in comparison to the less technically complex email or browser “MAILTO” methods, provides working(More)
Sixteen elements found in 33 cumin spice samples from China, India, Syria, and Turkey were analysed by wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) spectroscopy using the commercially available Bruker - AXS S4 Explorer for the purpose of using the elements to discriminate among country of origin. Pellets were prepared of the samples and elemental(More)
