To compare outcomes in TEN patients treated in our burn unit since 1999, when we began to use IVIG (IG group), with TEN patients treated between 1995 and 1999 who did not(More)
Let A and B be fields of subsets of a nonempty set X and let µ : A → E and ν : B → E be finitely additive measures (" charges ") taking values in a commutative semigroup E. We assume that µ and ν are consistent (e.g. µ = ν on A ∩ B) and ask whether they have a common extension to a charge ρ : A ∨ B → E. Now, we shall see (proposition 2.3) that the most(More)
There are many causes of ventricular arrhythmias in pediatric patients, even those with structurally normal hearts. However, in young patients with 'normal' hearts, sustained ventricular arrhythmias are relatively rare. The primary concern of the physician is to identify which patients have benign ventricular arrhythmia patterns and which are at risk for(More)
