The accidental release of methyl isocyanate (MIC) in Bhopal, India, was reportedly responsible for the deaths of more than 2,000 people. To study the pathology of acute inhalation exposure to MIC, the tissues of male and female Fischer 344 rats were evaluated immediately after a single 2-hr exposure to 0, 3, 10, or 30 ppm MIC, and through day 91.

Preliminary data are given on the LD50 of PdCl2 following different routes of exposure and on the LD50 of PtCl4 following intravenous exposure. The retention, tissue distribution, and excretion of 103Pd and 191Pt in rats was determined following oral, intravenous, intratracheal, and inhalation exposure. The highest retention for both 103Pd and 191Pt was(More)

Successful and responsible oil and gas exploration in sensitive environments involves monitoring for potential environmental impacts across large geographic areas over the full life cycle of a lease property. Remote sensing, a tool widely used in geologic investigations and the oil and gas industry, can be a valuable new tool for monitoring and tracking(More)
BACKGROUND New published guidelines recommend treatment of ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) within 30 minutes of first medical contact to thrombolysis and 90 minutes to primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). OBJECTIVES To determine how a tertiary care center compares to these new guidelines and to evaluate the success of measures(More)
