INTRODUCTION To validate the Japanese Association for Acute Medicine (JAAM) disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) scoring system in patients with severe sepsis, we conducted a multicenter, prospective study at 15 critical care centers in tertiary care hospitals. METHODS This study included 624 severe sepsis patients. JAAM DIC was scored on the day(More)
INTRODUCTION Abnormal body temperatures (Tb) are frequently seen in patients with severe sepsis. However, the relationship between Tb abnormalities and the severity of disease is not clear. This study investigated the impact of Tb on disease severity and outcomes in patients with severe sepsis. METHODS We enrolled 624 patients with severe sepsis and(More)
To detect indices of recruitment intensity of the Pacific stock of chub mackerel Scomber japonicus, the relationship between the growth rate during early life and recruitment variability and the effects of temperature on annual change of the growth rate were examined. Growth-trajectories in larval and juvenile stages were back-calculated by otolith(More)
Growth of the autumn and winter spawning cohorts of the Japanese common squid Todarodes pacificus was examined based on daily growth increments in the statolith and gladius. The samples were taken from three groups of young (≤180 days old) squid: the autumn cohort collected in the Tsushima Current and the winter cohort collected in the Pacific near the(More)
— This paper describes a voltage-induction type elec-trostatic film motor that operates by feeding electric power to the slider by electrostatic induction. In electrostatic film motors, feeding power to slider is important for better output capability and positioning performance. However, the power feeding using electric cables sometimes cause mechanical(More)
