Following distal arterial and venous cannulations in both hind limbs of 10 dogs, left leg arterial pressure was reduced to less than 50 torr (group I) and 50 to 75 torr (group II). Muscle membrane potential difference (PD) measurements, muscle biopsies, and arterial and venous blood samples were taken at baseline, after 3 hours of ischemia, and following 3(More)
The effect of Ringer's Lactate (RL) and a colloid containing salt solution Plasmanate (PL) on extravascular lung water (EVLW) during aortic surgery was evaluated in a prospective study of 18 patients. Measured blood loss was replaced with packed red blood cells. In addition to red blood cell replacement, either RL or PL was infused (1) to maintain the(More)
Sherpa is a large-scale distributed and globally replicated multi-tenant cloud data storage system. Sherpa scales by horizontally partitioning data into tablets and distributing these tablets across multiple servers. While Sherpa scales for increasing workload sizes by adding servers, it is vulnerable to load imbalance among tablets that cause hotspots to(More)
Meckel's diverticulum is the most common congenital abnormality of the gastrointestinal tract. Complications most frequently arise in children younger than 2 years who present with gastrointestinal bleeding. The diagnosis is usually made via radionuclide scintigraphy or intraoperatively. The authors report a 71-year-old man who developed a sudden onset of(More)
The endorphins appear to play an integral role in the physiopathology of hemorrhagic shock. Blockade of these endodgenous opiates by naloxone can significantly alter the course of this syndrome. While the administration of naloxone to normal rats had no effect upon the circulation or cellular function, it improved the hemodynamic status of rats subjected to(More)
In the pregnant patient when visualization of the ureters is requested, excretory urography is often ordered. We propose the use of digital radiography using single exposure as an alternative to conventional urography. This technique allows significant dose reduction while visualizing the entire urinary tract. It can be performed on most current-generation(More)
Transmembrane potential difference (PD) is a reliable indicator of cellular function. Decreased PD in hepatocytes in hemorrhagic shock occurred concomitant with decreased adenosine triphosphate (ATP), suggesting energy depletion as the mechanism of cell dysfunction. This study correlates changes in liver and muscle PD with hepatocyte ATP,(More)
