PURPOSE Some of the neuroprotective effects of hydrogen sulfide (H(2)S) have been attributed to systemic hypometabolism and hypothermia. However, systemic metabolism may vary more dramatically than brain metabolism after cardiac arrest (CA). The authors investigated the effects of inhaled exogenous hydrogen sulfide on brain metabolism and neurological(More)
Congenital heart disease (CHD) is one of most common birth defects, causing fetal loss and death in newborn all over the world. Atrial and ventricular septal defects were the most common CHD subtypes in most districts. During the past decades, several genes were identified to control atrial septum formation, and mutations of these genes can cause cardiac(More)
Hypersonic boundary-layer transition can be affected significantly by surface roughness. Many important mechanisms which involve transition induced by arbitrary roughness are not well understood. In this paper, we propose a new high-order cut cell method which combined the non-uniform finite difference method for discrete points near the curvilinear(More)
Personalized and contextual interventions are promising techniques for mobile persuasive technologies in mobile health. In this paper, we propose the "fingerprints" technique to analyze the users' daily behavior patterns to find the meaningful moments to better support mobile persuasive technologies, especially mobile health interventions. We assume that(More)
Hypersonic boundary-layer transition can be affected significantly by surface roughness. Many important mechanisms which involve transition induced by arbitrary roughness are not well understood. Direct numerical simulation is broadly applied for investigating the roughness induced instability and transition in recent decade. But due to the complex(More)
