Postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) are still common following surgery. This is not only distressing to the patient, but increases costs. The thorough understanding of the mechanism of nausea and vomiting and a careful assessment of risk factors provide a rationale for appropriate management of PONV. Strategy to reduce baseline risk and the adoption of(More)
Amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) is a rare pathological syndrome, sometimes fatal that arises as an obstetric complication during vaginal delivery, caesarean, immediate postpartum or during pregnancy. It remains as an important cause of fetal and maternal morbidity and mortality. The authors present a clinical report of a young woman who developed an acute(More)
Astrometry can bring powerful constraints to bear on a variety of scientific questions about neutron stars, including their origins, astrophysics, evolution, and environments. Using phase-referenced observations at the VLBA, in conjunction with pulsar gating and in-beam calibration, we have measured the parallaxes and proper motions for 14 pulsars. The(More)
Aims. Adipocytokines are implicated in the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes and may represent identifiable precursors of metabolic disease within high-risk groups. We investigated adiponectin, leptin, and TNF- α and assessed the contribution of these molecules to insulin resistance in south Asians. Hypothesis. South Asians have adverse adipocytokine profiles(More)
1 This white paper was assembled by Lyman Page with input from many of the co-signers. It is part of the efforts of NASA'a Primordial Polarization Program Definition Team (PPPDT), Shaul Hanany chair, and of a NASA award to Steve Meyer and colleagues entitled " A study for a CMB Probe of Inflation " (07-ASMCS07-0012). Executive summary How did the universe(More)
Over the last decade, considerable effort has been made to measure the proper motions of the pulsars B1757−24 and B1951+32 in order to establish or refute associations with nearby supernova remnants and to understand better the complicated geometries of their surrounding nebulae. We present proper motion measurements of both pulsars with the Very Large(More)
Results are presented from a long-term astrometry program on PSR B0919+06 using the NRAO Very Long Baseline Array. With ten observations (seven epochs) between 1994–2000, we measure a proper motion µ α = 18.35 ± 0.06 mas yr −1 , µ δ = 86.56 ± 0.12 mas yr −1 , and a parallax π = 0.83 ± 0.13 mas (68% confidence intervals). This yields a pulsar distance of(More)
The radio pulsar B1951+32 and the supernova remnant CTB 80 provide a rich laboratory for the study of neutron stars and supernova remnants. Here, we present ground-based optical and near-infrared observations of them, along with X-ray observations with Chandra and a re-analysis of archival data obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope. The X-ray(More)
