BACKGROUND The prevalence and characteristics of fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) and partial FAS (PFAS) in the United States (US) are not well known. METHODS This active case ascertainment study in a Rocky Mountain Region City assessed the prevalence and traits of children with FAS and PFAS and linked them to maternal risk factors. Diagnoses made by expert(More)
The effect of hematocrit (Ht) on in vitro hemolysis test results (i.e., index of hemolysis) was evaluated using a Baylor/NASA prototype axial flow pump. Red blood cell suspensions of six different Ht (5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 40%; n = 30) were prepared and used for this evaluation. The pump was operated for 60 min under 5 L/min flow conditions, and blood samples(More)
Our newly developed axial flow pump consists of a flow tube, an internal rotating impeller, and a fixed flow stator (we call the stator) behind the impeller. This pump produces a flow of 3 to 8 L/min against 50 to 150 mm Hg pressure difference, respectively, in the range of 10,000 to 16,000 rpm. An axial flow pump that will be used as a ventricular assist(More)
A cooperative effort between Baylor College of Medicine and NASA/Johnson Space Center is under way to develop an implantable left ventricular assist device for either pulmonary or systemic circulatory support for more than 3 months' duration. Using methodical evaluation and testing, an implantable axial pump has been systematically improved. These(More)
A cooperative effort between Baylor College of Medicine and NASA/Johnson Space Center is under way to develop an implantable axial flow left ventricular assist device (LVAD). The pump is intended as an assist device for either pulmonary or systemic circulatory support for more than 3 months' duration. Currently, in vitro studies are under way to reduce the(More)
