Patient care can be intense and stressful, especially in emergency care situations. Emergency care has two parts, field care by a paramedic and in-hospital care. Paramedics often consult with physicians before the patient reaches the hospital. To do this effectively, they must convey the patient's condition rapidly and effectively. Upon hospital arrival(More)
Mouse peritoneal macrophages were incubated with varying amounts of heat-inactivated fetal calf serum (FCS) and treated with diazepam at the concentrations of 0.5 and 5.0 mug/ml. These macrophage preparations demonstrate that the capacity for synthesis and release of prostaglandins (PGs) E2, F2 alpha, 6-keto-PGF1 alpha and thromboxane TX(B2) is: (a)(More)
The next frontier of sensor networking is integration: building operational systems that meet business requirements and integrate with existing business processes. We describe an industrial deployment and the system architecture that overcomes challenges in energy efficiency, system reliability, data fidelity, and flexible integration. We evaluate the(More)
In emergency medicine, patient care is intense and stressful, often requiring paramedics to consult with remote physicians to convey the patient's condition. We present a framework for context-management in telemedicine developed in collaboration between engineers, physicians, and paramedics. We describe a mobile platform and embedded wireless sensors to(More)
The relationships between experimentally induced deciduoma formation, circulating estradiol (E) and progesterone (P) levels and alterations in uterine blood flow (UBF) were studied between days 4 and 15 of pseudopregnancy (PSP: day 0 = ovulation) in rats. Blood flow was measured with an electromagnetic blood flow monitor and serum analyzed for E and P(More)
The growth of the R3230AC mammary carcinoma was studied in female Fisher 344 rats that were treated with diazepam. Diazepam at 250 micrograms/animal/day (2.5 mg/kg body weight) and 500 micrograms/day was administered for 4 weeks, starting 2 days before subcutaneous transplantation of uniform pieces of the tumour. Tumour size was significantly increased in(More)
Walker 256 tumours grafted under the left kidney capsules in rats showed enhanced growth following daily treatment with diazepam 500 micrograms (1.7 mg/kg body weight) subcutaneously but not with 1250 micrograms. Thromboxane B2 (the metabolite of TXA2) levels in venous drainage from both the tumour bearing left kidney and from the right control kidney were(More)
To determine if oxytocin and estradiol were effected by pelvic neurectomy (PN), utero-ovarian vein blood was collected from PN rats during the preparturient period and assayed for these hormones. Radioimmunoassayable oxytocin levels were not significantly different in any groups of sham operated (S) or PN animals on days 21 and 22 or PN animals on days 23(More)
