Until today, the efficient partitioning and mapping of applications for multiprocessor systems is a challenging task. The deployment of reconfigurable hardware in this domain helps to meet the application requirements more efficiently due to hardware adaptation at design and runtime, which is not applicable in the traditional multiprocessor domain. To(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of intracoronary (IC) nitroprusside and intravenous adenosine (IVA) for assessing fractional flow reserve (FFR). BACKGROUND IV infusion of adenosine is a standard method to achieve a coronary hyperemia for FFR measurement. However, adenosine is expensive, causes multiple side(More)
Esophageal perforation is the most feared complication of transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), although the overall risk is extremely low. We report a case of esophageal perforation in a 77-year-old woman who had no apparent contraindications to TEE. Chronic steroid therapy for symptoms of asthma as well as osteophytic changes of the cervical vertebrae(More)
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) usually causes self-limiting upper respiratory tract infections, but can be associated with severe lower respiratory tract infection disease (LRTID) in infants and in patients with hematologic malignancies. We have analyzed the risk factors and the measures for containment within an outbreak of nosocomial RSV infections in(More)
We present a system architecture for trusted transactions in highly sensitive environments. This architecture takes advantage of techniques provided by the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) to attest the system state of the communication partners, to guarantee that the system is free of malware and that its software has not been tampered with. To achieve(More)

(99)Tc(V)O2-NHC complexes containing monodentate and bidentate N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) have been prepared by the reactions of [TcO(glyc)2](-) (glyc = ethyleneglycolato) with 1,3-dimethylimidazoline-2-ylidene (L1), 1,1'-methylene-3,3'-dimethyl-4,4'-diimidazoline-2,2'-diylidene (L2), and 1,1'-methylene-3,3'-diethyl-4,4'-diimidazoline-2,2'-diylidene(More)
Nowadays, large projects are developed by globally distributed developer teams. Global Software Development (GSD) is currently not supported by appropriate tools but with the tools designed for on-site development. In this work we analyze benefits of a peer-to-peer approach to integrated environment for GSD, analyze its requirements from selected industrial(More)
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES To study the effect of Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and QT dispersion (QTd) in patients presenting with Acute ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). METHODS This is a retrospective study conducted on patients admitted with the diagnosis of acute ST elevation myocardial infarction. In all 100 patients with acute myocardial(More)
The efficient automatized application partitioning and mapping process for multiprocessor systems is a challenging task in academics as well as in industry until today. The introduction of reconfigurable hardware in this domain helps to meet the application requirements more efficiently due to the method of hardware adaptation at design and runtime. The(More)
