Peridynamic States and Constitutive Modeling
A generalization of the original peridynamic framework for solid mechanics is proposed. This generalization permits the response of a material at a point to depend collectively on the deformation ofExpand

Clinical experience and pre-test probability scores in the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism.
BACKGROUND The Geneva and Wells pre-test probability scores are intended to replace empirical assessment of patients with suspected pulmonary embolism (PE). The effect of clinical experience on theExpand

Developments in novel breath tests for bacterial and fungal pulmonary infection.
PURPOSE OF REVIEW Breath testing has developed over the last 20 years. New techniques that can identify fingerprints for specific diseases and specific markers of respiratory pathogens have beenExpand

Measurement of breath acetone concentrations by selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry in type 2 diabetes.
Selected ion flow tube-mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) can measure volatile compounds in breath on-line in real time and has the potential to provide accurate breath tests for a number of inflammatory,Expand

Endotoxin exposure, wheezing, and rash in infancy in a New Zealand birth cohort.
BACKGROUND Wheezing in infancy is common and is associated with small lungs, viral respiratory tract infection, and environmental tobacco smoke exposure. Recently, increased levels of endotoxin inExpand

Quantification of hydrogen cyanide (HCN) in breath using selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry--HCN is not a biomarker of Pseudomonas in chronic suppurative lung disease.
Hydrogen cyanide (HCN) in exhaled breath has been proposed as a biomarker for airway inflammation, and also a marker of the presence in the airways of specific organisms, especially PseudomonasExpand

Inflammatory bowel disease and the lung: is there a link between surgery and bronchiectasis?
PurposeOne-third of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) has extracolonic manifestations. Inflammatory bowel-associated pulmonary disease is one of the less commonly recognized and moreExpand

Mobile selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) devices and their use for pollution exposure monitoring in breath and ambient air-pilot study.
Studies of health effects of air pollution exposure are limited by inability to accurately determine dose and exposure of air pollution in field trials. We explored the feasibility of using a mobileExpand

Validating a breath collection and analysis system for the new tuberculosis breath test.
Mycobacterium tuberculosis releases four volatile compounds, methyl phenyl-acetate, methyl nicotinate, methyl p-anisate and o-phenylanisole, some of which we have previously been reported to beExpand
