BACKGROUND The impaired balance of the low-frequency/high-frequency ratio obtained from spectral components of RR intervals can be a diagnostic test for sepsis. In addition, it is known that a reduction of heart rate variability (HRV) is useful in identifying septic patients at risk of the development of multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS). We have(More)
In order to conduct fast screening of passengers with infections such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) or pandemic influenza at a quarantine depot, we developed a non-contact screening system with self-produced program to conduct a human screening within five seconds, via a linear discriminant function from non-contact derived variables, i.e.(More)
The plasma levels of alkaline phosphatase (ALP), calcium, and inorganic phosphorus in the Japanese macaque were measured during its growing period. The plasma ALP level within two days after birth was 818±186 IU/1, and the level showed a temporary peak at about 2 months of age (2747±763 IU/1). The ALP level formed a plateau from 1 to 3 years of age, then(More)
We examined how Japanese monkeys in the wild formed an aversion to food which had been paired with poison. Ten monkeys of various ages and both sexes were chosen as subjects from 105 members of the Shiga-A1 troop at Jigokudani in Shiga Heights in Japan. We gave almond nuts to each subject. Once a monkey ate 10-20 almond nuts, he was captured and moved into(More)
A 70-year-old female was admitted to our hospital with a complaint of gross hematuria for two months. She had a 5 years history of eczematous vulvar skin eruption. With the diagnosis of T3N0M0 bladder cancer and anogenital Paget's disease, she underwent pelvic exenteration, vulvectomy and reconstruction of the vulva. Histopathological examinations and mucin(More)

Caffeine concentration in plasma and scalp hair has been determined for subjects consuming normal daily amounts of caffeine and the results used as an indicator of individual hepatic metabolic capacity. Daily exposure to caffeine was assessed in six healthy Japanese volunteers by direct HPLC measurement of the concentrations of caffeine in aliquots of all(More)
A 45-year-old female, who had undergone an operation for rectal cancer 4 years previously was admitted to our hospital because of a left renal mass found by follow-up ultrasonography. Ultrasonography revealed two high echoic tumors. Enhanced computerized tomography (CT) showed relatively low density tumors measuring 3.8 x 3.8 cm and 0.8 x 0.8 cm in the(More)
We have developed a non-contact stress monitoring system which measures respiratory V(T)/T(I) (tidal volume/inspiration time) alterations using a 10 GHz microwave radar. The measurable distance of the system is 50 cm, which is 10 times longer than our previously developed stress monitoring system which measures heart rate variability using a 24-GHz(More)
