The determination of O(2) consumption by using arteriovenous O(2) content differences is dependent on accurate oxyhemoglobin saturation measurements. Because swine are a common experimental species, we describe the validation of CO-oximeter for porcine-specific oxyhemoglobin saturation. After developing a nonlinear mathematical model of the porcine(More)
OBJECTIVE This commentary discusses known links between Exertional Heat Illness (EHI), Malignant Hyperthermia (MH), and other hereditary diseases of muscle. Genetic and functional testing is also evaluated as measures of fitness to return to duty/play. DATA SOURCES Reviews and research articles from Sports Medicine, Applied Physiology, and Anesthesiology.(More)
The authors present a unique medical technical application for illustrating the success and/or failure of the physiological healing process as a dynamically morphed video. Two examples used in this report include the healing of a severely fractured humerus from an explosion in Iraq and the other of dramatic tissue destruction from a poisonous spider bite.(More)
Our purpose was to demonstrate the consistency of radiologists' three-dimensional measurements of simulated blast fragment locations in vitro in an effort to objectively localize retained fragments and wound paths. We designed a phantom consisting of 10 nail heads (simulating blast fragments) glued to wooden pegs that were randomly situated at distances(More)
