 Hypoxia activates erythropoietin-producing cells, chemoreceptor cells of the carotid body and pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells (PSMC) with a comparable arterial PO2 threshold of some 70 mmHg. The inhibition by CO of the hypoxic responses in the two former cell types has led to the proposal that a haemoprotein is involved in the detection of the PO2(More)
INTRODUCTION Sepsis is a leading cause of admission to non-cardiological intensive care units (ICUs) and the second leading cause of death among ICU patients. We present the first extensive dataset on the epidemiology of severe sepsis treated in ICUs in Spain. METHODS We conducted a prospective, observational, multicentre cohort study, carried out over(More)
BACKGROUND Several investigations have studied hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV) during endotoxemia, as in this situation there is an increase in the activation of the inducible nitric oxide synthases, producing a greater liberation of nitric oxide (NO) in the pulmonary vessels. However, these studies yielded conflicting or at times contradictory(More)
A numerical model using the Finite Element Method (FEM) for the nonlinear static and dynamic analysis of reinforced concrete (RC) beams, plates and shells is presented in this work. For this purpose, computer programs based on plasticity theory and with crack monitoring capabilities are developed. The static analysis of RC shells up to failure load is(More)
