OBJECTIVES During cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), elimination of CO2 was shown to be limited by low tissue perfusion, especially when very low perfusion pressures were generated. It has therefore been suggested that sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3), by producing CO2, might aggravate the hypercarbic component of the existing acidosis and thereby worsen CPR(More)
Fractures of the neck and/or head of the ulna or distal ulna fracture (DUF) other than ulnar styloid fractures can occur in combination with distal radius fractures (DRF). This combination can have a significant influence on the treatment and prognosis since it causes the entire distal forearm to be unstable. In a series of 1279 consecutive unilateral DRFs,(More)
Truffles, i.e. tree root-associated fungal fruiting bodies, clearly range among the world’s most exclusive delicacies. Despite the quite restricted natural geographic occurrence of one of the most renowned fungal species, namely Tuber melanosporum, the development of inoculation procedures in the late 1960s made it possible to enlarge its production area in(More)
