It has been previously known that low-dose atropine (LDA) enhances vagal outflow to the heart. To demonstrate the importance of vagal cardiac modulation in arterial blood pressure (ABP) stability, we evaluated the effect of vagal cardiac stimulation with administration of LDA on ABP fluctuation during dynamic hypertensive and hypotensive stimuli. We(More)
In this paper we propose a circular path planning algorithm for a mobile robot using only monocular vision system. The proposed method reduces the size of image data obtained by CCD camera to improve the image processing speed and noise immunity. A circular path for obstacle avoidance of the mobile robot is determined by the position and size of obstacles.(More)
A 39-year-old woman with no history of trauma or meningitis presented to the neurology department of our hospital with an occipital headache, neck pain, nausea, and dizziness that had worsened during the previous month. The headache worsened when sitting or standing and partially regressed when lying down. She was diagnosed with spontaneous intracranial(More)
Nerve ligation injury may produce a tactile allodynia. Intrathecal adenosine receptor agonists or morphine have an antiallodynic effect. In this study, we examined the effect of intrathecal morphine on the antiallodynic state induced by the adenosine A1 receptor agonist, N(6)-(2-phenylisopropyl)-adenosine R-(-)isomer (R-PIA), in a rat model of nerve(More)
Compromised cardiac autonomic modulation can produce cardiovascular disturbances. We investigated whether combined deep and superficial cervical plexus (CP) blockade for carotid endarterectomy (CEA) produces changes in autonomic cardiovascular regulation. To estimate alterations in cardiovascular autonomic control before and after combined CP blockade in 22(More)
PURPOSE Antiallodynic effects have been demonstrated after intrathecal administration of alpha-2 adrenoceptor agonists and cholinesterase inhibitors in rats. Intrathecal carbachol also increases the activity of cholinergic receptor system at the spinal level. However, there is no study regarding the antagonism of carbachol on touch-evoked allodynia and the(More)
In this paper, we design an image-based robust controller to compensate uncertainties with image Jacobian and robot dynamics due to uncertain depth measurement and load variations. The proposed controller with eye-in-hand structure has separate terms to compensate each of uncertainties. The ultimately uniform boundedness of the closed-loop system is proved(More)
Mayer wave (~10 s) blood pressure (BP) oscillations may represent rhythmic vasomotor activity. However, it remains unclear if volatile anesthetics disturb the coherence between heart rate (HR) and BP rhythms in this region, which may result in improperly affecting BP–HR modulation by the baroreflex, especially when sympathetic stimulation is evoked during(More)
AIMS/INTRODUCTION Early initiation of basal insulin therapy is recommended for normalizing fasting blood glucose in type 2 diabetes mellitus. However, basal insulin treatment might not adequately control postprandial glucose levels. The present study evaluated whether the combination of the α-glucosidase inhibitor, acarbose, and basal insulin improved blood(More)
