The authors have examined the nasal septum in 273 newborns. Nasal septal deformations have been divided into anterior, posterior and anterior-posterior groups. Newborns have been divided into age groups within 12-h time sections. The incidence of nasal septal deviations in the group of newborns born by spontaneous labour has been compared with the incidence(More)
Intrinsically hydrophobic rare-earth oxides (REOs) have emerged as a robust class of ceramics for a variety of applications. Recently, the hydrophobicity of REOs has been observed experimentally and subsequently scrutinized using electronic structure density functional theory (DFT) calculations. In this work, we applied the DFT method to analyze the(More)
The authors have compared the frequency of occurrence of nasal septum deformation in two groups of newborns, using the simplest testing methods for: 1. newborns born by spontaneous labor (254 newborns), 2. newborns born by caesarean section (52 newborns). The deformation from the central position of the nose were found in 2 newborns from group 2 (3.9%) and(More)
