nodes, most of the energy is consumed when transmitting or receiving data. Sleep-wake scheduling mechanism is an effective way how to prolong node's lifetime. However, this mechanism can result in delays because a transmitting node has to wait until his neighbor wakes up. Another solution is event-driven communication model, where nodes communicate in case… (More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY A large amount of material was used to study the distribution, location and shape of meniscoids in intervertebral joints of the human spine, from the atlanto-occipital joint to the sacrum, in order to find out how many of intervertebral joints had mobile meniscoids. These might be regarded as possible causes of spinal blockade or other… (More)
—Global warming is big issue of this time. It is caused by producing emissions, mainly carbon dioxide. Many organizations tries to establish restrictions to limit CO 2 emissions. Our aim is to monitor underground parking lots and detect level of carbon dioxide using wireless sensor network. Gained results are drawn in the map of pollution of monitored area.
Application scenarios of WSN implementations are really broad. Due to their typical characteristics, such advantageous power consumption, wide communication coverage and relatively broad sensing possibilities, many application fields can be covered. In this paper, the problematic of power metering is targeted. Places with shared power sources, where… (More)
—Indoor environment is from the point of the wireless communication an extremely hostile environment. Despite this fact, wireless sensor network applications in the indoor environment are very common. Having signal propagation in a real environment, without considering interferences from other sources, we meet (not only indoors) four basic… (More)
Bupivacaine is a widely used long-acting local anaesthetic. In clinical practice, a mixture of bupivacaine and lidocaine is often used in order to combine the faster onset of sensory blockade of lidocaine with more profound and longer duration of blockade by bupivacaine. The aim of this study was to compare the cardiotoxicity of large doses of bupivacaine… (More)
