The contributions of beat-to-beat changes in mean arterial blood pressure (MABP) and breath-by-breath fluctuations in end-tidal CO2 (EtCO2) as determinants of the spontaneous variability of cerebral blood flow velocity (CBFV) were studied in 16 normal subjects at rest. The two input variables (MABP and EtCO2) had significant cross-correlations with CBFV but(More)
Nodularia spumigena is a filamentous diazotrophic cyanobacterium that dominates the annual late summer cyanobacterial blooms in the Baltic Sea. But N. spumigena also is common in brackish water bodies worldwide, suggesting special adaptation allowing it to thrive at moderate salinities. A draft genome analysis of N. spumigena sp. CCY9414 yielded a single(More)
BACKGROUND Aneurysms of the peroneal artery are infrequent and consist mainly of pseudoaneurysms. CASE PRESENTATION This report describes an unusual case of peroneal pseudoaneurysm developing after thromoboembolectomy with a Fogarty catheter. It was managed successfully using an endovascular technique consisting of selective catheterization and coil(More)
The widespread use of mobile devices, particularly by young people, offers new and exciting possibilities for learning. The mobility and pervasiveness factors inherent to mobile technologies allow support for learning at any time and in any place. A common problem among young undergraduate students is that many are disinterested in learning. Often very(More)
Harvested social media data has the potential to enhance emergency response decision support if its reliability can be assessed. We are working on an EU-FP7 project called Slándáil (Project No. 607691). Slándáil aims to develop a prototype system which automates social media data analysis for emergency response. This paper(More)
Back in 1994, Bill Gates in "The Road Ahead" suggested that research via the Internet would become so prevalent that researchers would become frustrated if they sought information on a topic via the web, and could not find it. Back then the World Wide Web was in its infancy. Today, electronic libraries are at a similar early stage. Will it be the case, that(More)
INTRODUCTION Chronic thoracic aortic aneurysm (CTAA) affecting the arch or descending aorta is an indolent but life-threatening condition with a rising prevalence as the UK population ages. Treatment may be in the form of open surgical repair (OSR) surgery, endovascular stent grafting (ESG) or best medical therapy (BMT). Currently, there is no consensus on(More)
E lectromagnetic interference (EMI), whether intentional or not, causes a wide spectrum of difficulties including momentary, minor inconveniences to system failures in electronic devices [7], [26]. Within a hospital environment , electronic devices must reliably perform or fail gracefully , including telecommunications infrastructure through basic(More)
