Removing the motion artifacts from measured photoplethysmography (PPG) signals is one of the important issues to be tackled for the accurate measurement of arterial oxygen saturation during movement. In this paper, the motion artifacts were reduced by exploiting the quasi-periodicity of the PPG signal and the independence between the PPG and the motion(More)
The glk gene from Corynebacterium glutamicum was isolated by complementation using Escherichia coli ZSC113 (ptsG ptsM glk). We sequenced a total of 3072 bp containing the 969-bp open reading frame encoding glucose kinase (Glk). The glk gene has a deduced molecular mass of 34.2 kDa and contains a typical ATP binding site. Comparison with protein sequences(More)
The instant transmission of radiological images may be important for making rapid clinical decisions about emergency patients. We have examined an instant image transfer system based on a personal digital assistant (PDA) phone with a built-in camera. Images displayed on a picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) monitor can be captured by the(More)
Yuk-Hap-Tang (YHT) induces cell death in human cervical carcinoma HeLa cells. Caspase-3, -6 and -9 were markedly activated in HeLa cells treated with YHT. The preferred substrate for caspase-3 cysteine protease, PARP, was cleaved to its 85-kDa cleavage product. YHT increased the amount of the anti-apoptotic protein, Bcl-2, and the pro-apoptotic protein,(More)
Soft-computing techniques are commonly used to detect medical phenomena and help with clinical diagnoses and treatment. In this work, we propose a design for a computerized sleep scoring method, which is based on a fuzzy classifier and a genetic algorithm (GA). We design the fuzzy classifier based on the GA using a single electroencephalogram (EEG) signal(More)
In this paper, the three-dimensional geometry of the human cochlea is modeled by the helico-spiral seashell model. The 3-D helico-spiral model, the generalized representation of the Archimedian spiral model, provides a framework for measuring cochlear features based on consistent estimation of model parameters. Nonlinear least square minimization based(More)
3D modeling and visualization of the cochlea using the World Wide Web (WWW) is an effective way of sharing anatomic information for cochlear implantation over the Internet, particularly for morphometry-based research and resident training in otolaryngology and neuroradiology. In this paper, 3D modeling, visualization and animation techniques are integrated(More)
The telemedicine systems for the decision of patient transfer, and the direction of patient treatment through remote consultation are necessarily required for better patient care in emergency situation. In this paper, the prototype emergency telemedicine system has been designed and implemented. The unified integration of multimedia components, including(More)
OBJECTIVES This study is part of the ongoing development of treatment methods for metabolic syndrome (MS) project, which involves monitoring daily physical activity. In this study, we have focused on detecting walking activity from subjects which includes many other physical activities such as standing, sitting, lying, walking, running, and falling.(More)
Thiopental intravenous injections before temporary clipping and mild hypothermia have protective effects in the setting of cerebral ischemia, and are used clinically in some centers. However, it is not known whether mild hypothermia affects thiopental-induced electroencephalogram (EEG) burst suppression. In this study, the authors compared the onset and(More)
