A nephrology practice in Alabama did not feel in control of vascular access management. Scheduling delays, as well as variable techniques and outcomes, leading to high morbidity and mortality, caused frustration with the existing care system for vascular access. Our objective was to develop an integrative system of vascular access care, involving(More)
Goat browsing can slow the encroachment of juniper (Juniperus pinchottii and Juniperus asheii) onto rangelands, but potential detrimental effects of monoterpenoids on reproduction are unknown. We determined whether redberry juniper consumption by pregnant goats caused abortions or reduced offspring neonatal viability. Pregnant Boer-cross nannies (n = 19)(More)
The mechanism by which angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors reduce red cell mass in renal transplant recipients with erythrocytosis is unclear. To examine the role of angiotensin II in this disorder, losartan (a competitive antagonist of the angiotensin II type 1 [AT1] receptor) was administered to 23 patients with erythrocytosis. Fourteen patients took(More)
In the southwestern United States, redberry {Juniperus pinchotii Sudw.) and ashe {Juniperus ashei Buchholz) juniper are two invasive species that dominate some rangelands. Goats will consume up to 30% of their diet in juniper, but it is unknown if sheep will accept juniper to the same extent. The objectives of this study were to determine if sheep can be(More)
