Very little data exists on the prevalence and impact of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). The aim of this study was to examine the impact of SDB on newly diagnosed IPF patients and explore associations with lung function parameters. From 2005 to 2009, a cohort of 27 newly diagnosed patients with IPF(More)
In his reports on the regional hydrogeology of the central Great Plains, in particular southeastern Colorado and southwestern and central Kansas, Darton considered the Dakota aquifer to be a classic example of an artesian system. Computer simulations of the flow system in this study, however, suggest that the Dakota is not a regional artesian aquifer in the(More)
The nomenclature for Kansas aquifers needs revision. Many of the names currently in use were derived in an ad hoc manner without the benefit of a consistent set of hydrogeologically based guidelines. Because nomenclature forms the basis of scientific discussion of hydrologic issues, names should be clearly defined and consistently applied in order to(More)
Ground-water availability from the High Plains aquifer in Southwest Kansas Ground-water Management District 3 (GMD 3) is declining as it is elsewhere in the western part of the state (Figure 1). Water-use density, defined as the annual amount of water pumped from the aquifer per unit of land area, is high over much of the District and greatly exceeds annual(More)
