Preface Currently, the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) GPS and GLONASS are modernized and new GNSS such as Galileo and Compass are developed. The modernization of GPS includes an additional signal on L5 which lies in an aeronautical band. This will enable a dual frequency positioning on board an aircraft and an elimination of the dispersive(More)
Magnetometers provide compass information, and are widely used for navigation, orientation and alignment of objects. As magnetometers are affected by sensor biases and eventually by systematic distortions of the Earth magnetic field, a calibration is needed. In this paper, a method for calibration of magnetometers with three Global Navigation Satellite(More)
The intention of this study was to examine whether it is possible to induce an acute and long-time hemodilution by a 6% Hydroxyethyl Starch solution (HES 40). This study was investigated in 30 patients with acute cerebral ischemia. Primarily a isovolemic infusion of HES 40 was made in order to reduce the hematocrit nearly 40%. Secondly, a hypervolemic(More)
Blood samples were taken from 39 patients with head and neck carcinomas after the initial irradiation, and the activity of the glycolytic enzyme glucose-6-phosphate isomerase (GPI) was measured. All patients showed GPI peaks at reproducible times. The height of the enzyme peak occurring 15.5-19.5 h after irradiation, was significantly correlated with tumour(More)
In 20 patients with oesophageal carcinoma blood samples were taken after the first irradiation and the activity of the glycolytic enzyme glucose-6-phosphate isomerase was measured. In all patients there occur GPI peaks at reproducible times. The height of the enzyme peak occurring 15.5 to 19.5 hours p.irr. expresses a significant dependence on tumour size(More)
After a first irradiation with 2 and 5 Gy blood samples were collected at 30 minutes' intervals for 24 hours in 19 tongue cancer patients to assess the activity of the glycosis enzyme glucose-6-phosphate isomerase (GPI) and the creatine kinase (CK). In all patients the GPI activity exhibited peaks at reproducible points in time. Observed for the very first(More)
