INTRODUCTION Operating department staff are usually required to wear dedicated theatre shoes whilst in the theatre area but there is little evidence to support the beneficial use of theatre shoes. PATIENTS AND METHODS We performed a study to assess the level of bacterial contamination of theatre shoes at the beginning and end of a working day, and(More)
This paper presents an effective multiple-inductive-loop pattern suitable for heterogeneous and less lane-disciplined traffic and its performance evaluation. Vehicle detection system based on conventional inductive loops works well only for lane-based and homogeneous traffic. A multiple-loop system for sensing vehicles in a heterogeneous and less(More)
This paper presents a suitable algorithm to classify vehicles detected by a multiple inductive loop system, developed for measuring traffic parameters in a heterogeneous and no-lane disciplined traffic. The proposed classification scheme employs Random Forest (RF) algorithm. This scheme is suited not only for classifying the detected vehicles as bicycle,(More)
A more complete inventory of inoculum sources would help our understanding of epidemics of Fusarium head blight (FHB). We hypothesize that Fusarium species can colonize and survive on leaves in the US northern Great Plains. In 2001, two hard red spring wheat cultivars Alsen (resistant to FHB) and Oxen (susceptible) were planted in a wheat stubble or plowed(More)
Iron oxide-hydroxide (α-Fe(2)O(3); Fe(OH)(3)) nanoparticles have been prepared by a microemulsion route using ammonia (NH(3)) solution or tetrabutylammonium hydroxide (TBAH) as precipitants. The iron oxide-hydroxide nanoparticles obtained were characterized by TGA, N(2) sorptiometry, XRD, IR, SEM, HR-TEM, and DLS techniques. Properties such as specific(More)
Renal medullary carcinoma (RMC) is a rare, yet aggressive malignancy of the kidney that is found predominantly in young patients with African descent and sickle cell hemoglobinopathies and most specifically sickle cell trait. Due to its aggressive nature, most cases have metastasis or local invasion at the time of diagnosis. Prognosis is extremely poor with(More)
This paper presents a new pedometer which requires, practically, no user depended calibration. This new scheme is based on an inductive proximity sensing principle. The proposed pedometer consists of two modules, to be installed one in each shoe. These modules can be easily integrated, by the user, into commercially available shoes. A prototype unit has(More)
