STUDY OBJECTIVES To measure the tracheal diameters (TDs) [transverse (Tr) TD, and anteroposterior (AP) TD] and left main bronchus diameters (LBDs) [Tr and AP] using multiplane CT scan reconstructions with a tridimensional correction of the declination. To evaluate the relationship between clinical variables and CT scan diameters of the tracheobronchial(More)
BACKGROUND The treatment of status epilepticus (SE) is based on relatively little evidence although several guidelines have been published. A recent study reported a worse SE prognosis in a large urban setting as compared to a peripheral hospital, postulating better management in the latter. The aim of this study was to analyse SE episodes occurring in(More)
In this paper, we evaluate the performance perceived by end-users with very high access rates, connected to a common backhaul link that aggregates the traffic of multiple access areas. We model, at flow level, the way a finite population of users with heterogeneous access rates and traffic demands shares the capacity of this common backhaul link. We then(More)
This paper proposes simple dimensioning rules for high speed m access links carrying data traffic. Assuming a finite source population and fair bandwidth sharing among user flows, we derive formulas relating capacity, demand and performance. These formulas allow link dimensioning for a target quality of service expressed in terms of useful per-flow(More)
A technological specimen, representative of industrial structural elements, was developed in order to analyze the material properties existing within the structure [1]. The specimen is of beam type and presents design singularities such as important thicknesses, ply drop off zones and a reinforced zone. The present study concerns the central reinforced zone(More)
We analyze the impact of inter-cell mobility on user performance in dense networks such as that enabled by LTE-A and 5G. To this end, we consider a homogeneous network of small cells and first show how to reduce the evaluation of user performance to the case of a single representative cell. We then propose simple analytical models that capture mobility(More)
This paper presents a topology-aware load balancing approach for clusters of non-uniform memory access (NUMA) compute nodes. In these machines, both network and memory communication costs are asymmetric. Ignoring this asymmetry can lead to a reduction in application communication performance. Therefore, to fully exploit the potential of these machines and(More)
