Intravenous Immunoglobulin (IVIG) has been proposed as a beneficial therapy for toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN). However, this has been based on a limited amount of Class 5 evidence. 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)
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)
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)
Let G be an Abelian group and let μ : A → G and ν : B → G be finitely additive measures (charges) defined on fields A and B of subsets of a set X. It is assumed that μ and ν agree on A∩B, i.e. they are consistent. The existence of common extensions of μ and ν is investigated, and conditions on A and B facilitating such extensions are given. 0. Introduction.(More)
In [l], the notion of a rigid separable measurable space was defined, and such spaces were shown to exist. We expand upon this idea and ask what are the possible automorphism groups for such spaces. We show that there is only one such non-trivial group which is Abelian (a countable product of two element groups), and that this group is realised as the(More)
A type of Strassen's Theorem for measures taking values in the positive cone of a Banach lattice is proved. An application is given to metrics for convergence of vector measures. 1. Preliminaries: vector measures Let y be a field of subsets of a set X, and let (B, || • ||) be a Banach space. (All vector spaces we consider are assumed to have real scalars.)(More)
