The Adaptive Visual Analog Scales is a freely available computer software package designed to be a flexible tool for the creation, administration, and automated scoring of both continuous and discrete visual analog scale formats. The continuous format is a series of individual items that are rated along a solid line and scored as a percentage of distance(More)
Calmodulin (CaM), a multifunctional calcium binding protein with no known enzymatic activity, has been purified to homogeneity from bovine adrenal cortex. The purification included anion exchange on DE-52 cellulose, ammonium sulfate precipitation, and separation by molecular sieving on Sephadex G-150. The yield of CaM from 900 g of whole adrenal was 150 mg.(More)
The effect of test environment on the creep behavior of a poly(ethylmethacrylate) bone cement was investigated. The aim of the study was to assess the influence of environment on the inherent material behavior, and so it was convenient to perform tests in tension on well-prepared samples. In addition to control tests in air, the liquid environments studied(More)
The creep behaviour of bone cements based on polyethylmethacrylate, with and without addition of hydroxyapatite filler has been investigated, in order to determine the effect of hydroxyapatite filling and to investigate methods of predicting the long-term creep behaviour from short-term tests. The materials were produced under laboratory conditions and(More)
The option of analgesic anaesthesia without hypnotic was investigated in 13 patients, submitted to general, orthopedic or urologic surgery. Induction and maintenance of anaesthesia was performed with syringe-pump infusion of remifentanil 1-->2.2 mcg/kg/m and cisatrecurium, 0.2/air with FIO2 0.3; ecg monitoring, sieric level of ACTH were studied.
