Tiger puffer, Takifugu rubripes, juveniles were fed with four semi-purified experimental diets containing 0.2% Ca from Ca-lactate (diet 1), no supplemental Ca (diet 2) and 0.2% and 2.5% Ca from tricalcium phosphate, TCP (diets 3 and 4), respectively. After a 10 week rearing period, growth and feed utilization were significantly lower in the fish group fed(More)
Juvenile tiger puffer (Takifugu rubripes) were fed semi-purified diets with graded levels (0–0.40%) of calcium (Ca) supplements for 8 weeks at a temperature of 23.0–25.5 °C. At the end of the feeding experiment, average final body weight increased with increasing dietary Ca levels. A diet without Ca supplement resulted in poor average final body weight and(More)
Negative pressure pulmonary edema (NPPE) is a noncardiogenic pathological process that is treated with invasive ventilation via a tracheal tube. To investigate the feasibility and safety of noninvasive positive pressure ventilation (NPPV) as an alternative treatment for NPPE, we retrospectively reviewed charts of 15 perioperative NPPE patients.

The production of nitric oxide (NO) by inducible NO synthase (NOS) and carbon monoxide (CO) by inducible heme oxygenase (HO) contributes greatly to endotoxemia. Reciprocal relationships have been proposed between the NO/NOS and CO/HO systems. However, the interaction between these systems during endotoxemia is unclear, and it is unknown whether the(More)
