UNLABELLED Oral and intravenous (IV) N-acetylcysteine (NAC) are used for the treatment of acetaminophen poisoning. The objective of this multicenter study was to compare the safety of these two routes of administration. METHODS We conducted a multicenter chart review of all patients treated with NAC for acetaminophen poisoning. The primary safety outcome(More)
Based on convex programming, this paper presents a new training signal design for orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) under colored Gaussian noise. An effective method for OFDM symbol detection with the use of precoding is also described. Both analytical and simulation results show that the proposed training design and detection method can(More)
This paper proposes an optimal training design for an amplify-and-forward (AF) relay system, in which the source, relay, and destination are all equipped with multiple antennas. Examined is the scenario when spatial correlation exists among the multiple antennas employed at each node. By properly exploiting the correlation information, the training design(More)
Cryptosporiopsis eucalypti has been associated with foliar disease of eucalypts in many parts of the world, especially in South-East Asia where Eucalyptus camaldulensis can be severely affected. In a field trial in southern Vietnam of 150 open-pollinated families of seven tropical provenances of E. camaldulensis, C. eucalypti was the main pathogen(More)
Optimal training design and channel estimation for spatially correlated multi-user multi-input multi-output with orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) systems is still an open research topic of great interest. This study first applies tractable semi-definite programming (SDP) to obtain the optimal training signal for the general case of(More)
The optimal preceding design to maximize capacity of spatially correlated dual-hop non-regenerative multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) relaying systems is proposed in this paper. The correlated systems generally have additive colored Gaussian noise (ACGN) at receive terminals and correlated data symbols at the source. By designing the optimal precoder in(More)
This paper proposes an optimal training design for an amplify-and-forward (AF) relay system in which the source, relay and destination are all equipped with multiple antennas. Examined is the scenario when spatial correlation exists among the multiple antennas employed at each node in the system and such information is properly taken into account in the(More)
This paper studies the bit error rate (BER) performance of an adaptive decode-and-forward (DF) relaying scheme for a cooperative wireless network operating on independent and identically distributed (i.i.d.) or independent and non-identically distributed (i.n.d.) Rayleigh fading channels. The considered network is with one source, K relays, and one(More)
Conditional mutual information (CMI) analysis and precoding design for generally correlated wireless multi-hop multi-input multi-output (MIMO) channels are presented in this paper. Although some particular scenarios have been examined in existing publications, this paper investigates a generally correlated transmission system having spatially correlated(More)
