BACKGROUND Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) in on-pump cardiac surgery can have harmful systemic effects, triggered in part by radical oxygen species (ROS) produced by ischemia-reperfusion in the heart and the lung. We determined the relationship between levels of oxidative stress markers (8-isoprostane and nitrites/nitrates) in plasma with aortic cross clamp(More)
The stability condition or non-degeneracy property means that the interior angles of all elements have to be bounded uniformly away from zero. Non-degeneracy is essential, for example, for the approximation properties of finite element spaces and the convergence behavior of multigrid and multilevel algorithms. Rosenberg and Stenger [1] showed the(More)
In this work we study the diameters reduction rate for the iterative application of the longest edge (LE) n-section of triangles for n P 4. The maximum diameter dnk of all triangles generated at the kth iteration of the LE n-section is closely connected with the properties of the triangular mesh generated by this refinement scheme. The upper and the lower(More)
Invasive candidiasis (IC) is a frequent and life-threatening infection in critically ill patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate the epidemiology of IC and the antifungal susceptibility of etiological agents in patients admitted to our surgical intensive care unit (SICU) in Spain. We designed a prospective, observational, single center,(More)
Let t be a triangle in R. We find the Longest Edge (LE) of t, insert n−1 equally-space points in the LE and connect them to the opposite vertex. This yields the generation of n new sub-triangles whose parent is t. Now, continue this process iteratively. Proficient algorithms for mesh refinement using this method are known when n = 2, but less known when n =(More)
