UNLABELLED To investigate how surgical positions affect the severity and progress of hypoxemia during one-lung ventilation (OLV), we studied 33 adult patients undergoing right thoracotomy with left OLV. The patients were divided into three groups according to the positions during surgery as follows: the supine position (SP) group (n = 11), the left(More)
A full-potential augmented-plane-wave (FLAPW) band-structure calculation in the local density approximation (LDA) was carried out for hexagonal Na(x)CoO(2) (x = 0.45, 0.55, 0.66 and 0.75). The Seebeck tensor was estimated by the Boltzmann theory, assuming that the relaxation time is constant on the Fermi surface. The Seebeck tensor is extremely anisotropic;(More)
The recent development of multi-agent simulations brings about a need for population synthesis. It is a task of reconstructing the entire population from a sampling survey of limited size (1% or so), supplying the initial conditions from which simulations begin. This paper presents a new kernel density estimator for this task. Our method is an analogue of(More)
We report herein a case of laryngeal sarcoidosis that was refractory to systemic corticosteroids, but that improved spontaneously. A 49-year-old woman complained of dysphagia and hoarseness with accompanying edematous swellings of both arytenoid regions. She was referred to our hospital after systemic corticosteroid therapy failed to achieve any(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of traditional herbal medicines (Kampo) on the symptoms of Yusho. Yusho is a mass food poisoning that was caused by ingestion of rice oil contaminated with dioxins and related organochlorines in 1968. Patients with Yusho suffer from skin symptoms (acneform eruptions, liability to suppuration and(More)
