Sleep, respiratory, and cardiac data obtained during sleep and wakefulness by continuous 24-hour polygraphic monitoring from twelve infants who were "near misses" for the sudden-infant-death syndrome were compared with similar information obtained from seven low-risk infants. Although the sleep variables studied were of limited value in differentiating(More)
Several types of apnea are described in premature infants and in infants who have survived breathing-stoppage episodes which may be related to the sudden infant death syndrome. Upper airway apnea appears to induce the greatest changes: oxygen desaturation is more pronounced than in a central apnea of similar duration, and secondary cardiac changes are(More)
Homodimeric EIAV p51/51 and heterodimeric EIAV p66/51 reverse transcriptase were purified in order to compare the different modes of DNA synthesis supported by the enzymes. Analysis of the dimerization behavior of the EIAV enzymes indicates that the dimer stability of EIAV reverse transcriptase enzymes is higher than that of their HIV-1 reverse(More)
Enterobacter cloacae Ecl261 was isolated with Escherichia coli Ec257 from the urine of a patient living in a nursing home. Both isolates were resistant to ticarcillin (MICs, 1,024 microg/ml), without significant potentiation of its activity by 2 microg of clavulanate per ml (MICs, 512 microg/ml), and susceptible to naturally active cephalosporins. This(More)
Five full-term infants were referred for "near miss" sudden infant death syndrome events, which occurred between 3 and 12 weeks of age. After a complete pediatric evaluation and 24-hour polygraphic monitoring, each infant was monitored at home with a cardiorespiratory monitor. Each was followed regularly (with repeat polygraphic recordings) up to 4 years of(More)
Eight full-term infants between 3 and 8 weeks of age, who had had 24 to 48 hours of vague problems involving a congested upper airway and/or irritability, had a life-threatening respiratory episode at home, called a near-miss for sudden infant death syndrome event. Polygraphically monitored mixed apneas occurred in clusters during non-rapid eye movement(More)
