Reflex syncope is classified based on the efferent autonomic system as vasodepressant type, cardioinhibitory type and mixed type. We employed quantitative sweat testing to assess differences in sudomotor sympathetic activity in relation to the type of reflex syncope. In cardioinhibitory type sweating started in 7/9 patients after and in vasodepressor type(More)
Over the past decade, a dramatic increase of functionality, quantity, size, and complexity of software-intensive embedded systems in the automotive industry can be observed. In particular, the growing complexity drives current requirements engineering practices to the limits. In close cooperation between partners from industry and academia, the recently(More)
The aims of this work were to characterize the fermentation process of mezcal from San Luis Potosi, México and identify the yeasts present in the fermentation using molecular culture-dependent methods (RFLP of the 5.8S-ITS and sequencing of the D1/D2 domain) and also by using a culture-independent method (DGGE). The alcoholic fermentations of two separate(More)
OBJECTIVE To quantify the risk for bleeding complications after thrombolysis for ischemic stroke in patients on warfarin (international normalized ratio [INR] ≤ 1.7) and to put these data into perspective with previous studies. METHODS A total of 548 consecutive stroke patients receiving IV recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA) were(More)
OBJECTIVE Prominent fibrinogen cleavage by recombinant tissue plasminogen activator and formation of fibrinogen degradation products with anticoagulant properties was proposed to amplify the risk of thrombolysis-related bleeding complications, but supportive evidence mainly derived from studies on myocardial infarction. METHODS This study included 547(More)
The process of cocoa fermentation is a very important step for the generation or aromatic compounds, which are attributable to the metabolism of the microorganisms involved. There are some reports about this process and the identification of microorganisms; however, there are no reports identifying the yeasts involved in a Mexican cocoa fermentation process(More)
Einleitung Im Entwicklungsprozess von Softwaresystemen und spe-ziell in der Entwicklung softwareintensiver eingebetteter Systeme (siES) kommt dem Requirements Engineering (RE) die Aufgabe zu, die Anforderungen an das zu entwi-ckelnde Systeme zu gewinnen, zu spezifizieren, abzu-stimmen, zu verwalten und die angemessene Umsetzung der Anforderungen verfolgbar(More)
BACKGROUND Parkinson's Disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by motor symptoms, but in which behavioral and cognitive disturbances are also common. Trust, due to its pervasiveness in society, has become a major research topic in several scientific disciplines. However, empirical evidence for trust behavior in neurological patients, and(More)
