The authors attempted to simultaneously measure cardiac output by thermodilution (COtd), thoracic bioimpedance (CObi), and suprasternal Doppler ultrasound (COdopp) in 68 patients. Subgroups separately compared included patients whose lungs were mechanically ventilated, patients undergoing cardiac surgery, aortic surgery, patients with dysrhythmias, and(More)
Actinomycin D (ACT-D), an inhibitor of transcription, was added to chick muscle cultures to study its effect on the synthesis of acetylcholine receptor (ACHR) and acetylcholinesterase (ACHE, EC 3.1.1.7). Doses of ACT-D (1.85-18.5 nM), which inhibited uridine incorporation up to 80%, increased ACHR, ACHE, and creatine kinase (CK, EC 2.7.3.2) levels without(More)
Chicks affected with hereditary muscular dystrophy were injected twice daily with 20 milligrams of diphenylhydantoin per kilogram of body weight on days 1 to 40 after hatching. The righting ability of dystrophic chicks treated with diphenylhydantoin was improved compared to that of untreated dystrophic chicks, and acetylcholinesterase activity was reduced(More)
