This retrospective study examines the relationship of multiplace chamber compression rates and the influence of several predisposing factors on the risk of symptomatic barotrauma. Data were reviewed from a 3-yr period for 111 patients who received 2,394 routine hyperbaric oxygen treatments. A total of 35 patients reported symptoms of barotrauma, with an(More)
Correlates of the leucocyte count (WBC) and its relationships to other coronary heart disease (CHD) risk factors were assessed in 4981 black and white young adults. Mean WBC was higher in women than men, higher in whites than blacks, and higher in those aged 18-24 than aged 25-30 years. It also varied by season with the highest levels in the autumn. Other(More)
Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) is the most commonly inherited peripheral neuropathy. CMT disease signs include distal limb neuropathy, abnormal gaiting, exacerbation of neuropathy, sensory defects and deafness. We generated a novel line of CMT2E mice expressing an hNF-L(E397K) transgene, which displayed muscle atrophy of the lower limbs without(More)
Data from the US Army Health Risk Appraisal Program were used to compare health and fitness levels in flight and nonflight personnel. Survey data collected from an aviation brigade, consisting of 428 aircrew and 899 support personnel, were compared with US Army summary statistics. Flight personnel scored better on evaluation of hypertension, stress, weight(More)
The U.S. Army Aviation Epidemiology Data Register (AEDR) was queried for Army aviators with the finding of glycosuria, hyperglycemia, impaired glucose tolerance, diabetes mellitus (DM), use of oral hypoglycemic agents, or use of insulin for the period 1988-92. The study tabulated the incidence and age-specific annual rates of DM, and tabulated the(More)
This report presents explicit analytical expressions for the primal, primal shadows, dual and dual shadows functions for the Laplace equation in the vicinity of a circular singular edge with Neumann boundary conditions on the faces that intersect at the singular edge. Two configurations are investigated: a penny-shaped crack and a 90 • V-notch.
Explicit asymptotic series describing solutions to the Laplace equation in the vicinity of a circular edge in a three-dimensional domain was recently provided in Yosibash et al, Int. Jour. Fracture, 168 (2011), pp. 31-52. Utilizing it, we extend the quasidual function method (QDFM) for extracting the generalized edge flux intensity functions (GEFIFs) along(More)

A newly developed method, named the quasi-dual function method (QDFM) is proposed for extracting edge stress intensity functions (ESIFs) along circular crack fronts from finite element solutions, in a general three-dimensional domain and boundary conditions. The mathematical machinery developed in the framework of the Laplace operator in [17] is extended(More)
