METHODS We performed a prospective, randomised, crossover study in a simulated 6-year-old paediatric manikin model. Each participant performed 2-minute(More)
A novel 1,3,5-substituted triethylbenzene derivative with a 2-aminobenzimidazole moiety as a binding and signaling subunit was synthesized. The sensor was tested in a buffered CH(3)CN/H(2)O (99:1, v/v) solution and found to be selective for iodide as demonstrated by the photophysical properties obtained through UV-vis absorption and fluorescence(More)
BACKGROUND Obesity induced by high-fat diet (HFD) is one of the most widespread metabolic disorders in current society. However, there has been little research regarding the effects of HFD-induced obesity in the septa of animal models of cerebral ischemia. Therefore, in the present study, we investigated septal effects of HFD on neuronal damage and gliosis(More)
OBJECTIVE There has been little investigation on the appropriateness of the hand position suggested by various guidelines in paediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). We aimed to identify anatomical structures underneath the chest compression landmarks and tried to find the proper hand position using computed tomography (CT) images for more effective(More)
