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)

CTC is able to distributively and asynchronously exploit available environmental and topological awareness and better allocate resources without significant overhead. Depending on the utility functions employed by CTC(More)
Optimal training design and channel estimation for spatially correlated multiuser 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)
This paper investigates orthogonal space-time block code (OSTBC) transmission for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) amplify-and-forward (AF) relaying networks composed of one source, K relays, and one destination and with M-ary frequency-shift keying (FSK) modulation. A non-coherent detection scheme is proposed and analyzed in a situation where 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)
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)
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)
