Eighty-two women expressed no preference for sex of offspring; of the remaining 58, 33 chose girls and 25 chose boys. Of the 26 women who indicated they would(More)
Pigs are frequently anaesthetized in animal research settings. Due to the unique laryngeal anatomy, endotracheal intubation is demanding in pigs. Several complications associated with endotracheal intubation have been reported in pigs, but laryngeal perforation following difficult intubation has not been documented so far. The present case report describes(More)
OBJECTIVE Perioperative hypothermia is a common problem that must not be underestimated. There are plenty of methods to prevent or reduce heat loss during anaesthesia. The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of warmed intravenous (IV) infusions to the perioperative decrease of body temperature of anaesthetized cats. MATERIAL AND METHODS In(More)
Surveyor V has provided the first direct chemical analysis of the lunar surface. In addition, the amount of ferromagnetic material was measured. More than 18,000 television pictures were taken, and a variety of scientific data were obtained.
Surveyor I landed on the lunar surface on 2 June 1966 and obtained more than 11,000 pictures of the environment with its television camera. The same region was photographed by the 24-inch (61-centimeter) camera of Orbiter III on 22 February 1967. Surveyor I has been located in these Orbiter photographs; its image was found and all search and identification(More)
