We report the case of an 18-year-old man with pulmonary leptospirosis presenting as an atypical pneumonia with alveolar haemorrhage, without icterus. Has he developed ARDS the patient was admitted in intensive care unit. This patient was contaminated when swimming in a lake. The purpose of this article is to remind doctors that in patient presenting(More)
Parametric amplification is an interesting way of artificially increasing a MEMS Quality factor and could be helpful in many kinds of applications. This paper presents a theoretical study of this principle, based on Matlab/Simulink® simulations, and proposes design guidelines for parametric structures. A new device designed with this approach is presented(More)
Air Medical Journal 29:3 Dear Editors: To improve the prognosis of patients with critical conditions, the air medical evacuation system is expected to move patients faster and farther than in previous years. Modern technology allows for the establishment of a seamless en route care capability for ill patients as they move through the evacuation system. Air(More)
The cornerstone of the current concept of military medical operations is the function, fit, and form of the provision of en route care. The life-saving capability of far-forward surgery creates the need for a new and unique ability: to move stabilized, but not necessarily stable, patients. The current system of en route care serves as a primary and(More)
illness, as far as quantitative and qualitative sleep depriva tion can have negative consequences on a physiologic function, particularly the immune mechanism, as well as psychological well-being [1]. Patients’ perception of intensive care is very diff erent depending on the study. To illustrate, Simini reported frequent feelings such as ‘pain, noise, sleep(More)
OBJECTIVES The ability to auscultate during air medical transport is compromised by high ambient-noise levels. The aim of this study was to assess the capabilities of a traditional and an electronic stethoscope (which is expected to amplify sounds and reduce ambient noise) to assess heart and breath sounds during medical transport in a Boeing C135.

Staphylococcus aureus is responsible for two main clinical presentations in humans: suppurative infections and toxigenic diseases. A small percentage of S. aureus strains secrete Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL). This toxin is implicated in skin infections, furunculosis, osteoarticular infections, and particularly, in serious pulmonary infections known as(More)
