OBJECTIVES This study determined the frequency of improvement in peak oxygen uptake and its role in reevaluation of candidates awaiting heart transplantation. BACKGROUND Ambulatory candidates for transplantation usually wait > 6 months to undergo the procedure, and during this period symptoms may lessen, and peak oxygen uptake may improve. Whereas initial(More)
Despite evidence of therapeutic benefit of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors for congestive heart failure and asymptomatic left ventricular (LV) dysfunction, recent studies suggest that in heart failure patients, rates of ACE inhibitor usage in clinical practice remain low. In this study, the medical records of 107 patients with documented LV(More)
Based on field extensions we propose a novel aspect for designing linear dispersion space-time block codes (STBCs). The proposed code achieves the maximum attainable diversity. This code is also full-rate and proved to be information lossless. The simulation results also show that the proposed scheme outperforms the Golden code when BPSK constellation is(More)
