An experimental telerobotics (TR) simulation is described suitable for studying human operator (HO) performance. Simple manipulator pick-and-place and tracking tasks allowed quantitative comparison of a number of calligraphic display viewing conditions. An enhanced perspective display was effective with a reference line from target to base, with or without(More)
We report a case of a 57-year-old male with a pancreatic arteriovenous malformation (AVM). The diagnosis was made by CT scan and angiography. In the reported case, bleeding from AVM into the biliary tract caused haemobilia and bleeding into the pancreatic head caused abdominal pain. Pancreatic AVM has been only rarely reported as a cause of haemobilia.
We propose a novel method for detection of protein impurities present in plasma-derived and recombinant purified injectable biopharmaceuticals by enhancing the concentration of protein impurities, in essence "amplifying" their presence to detectable levels. The method is based on the capture of proteins using a combinatorial solid-phase hexapeptides ligand(More)
Advances in extracorporeal membrane oxygenation have enabled the facilitation of surgical intervention in patients who may otherwise be considered inoperable using conventional ventilation-for example, the resection of an early stage metachronous lung cancer in a patient who has previously undergone a pneumonectomy for a prior lung cancer. We present one(More)
INTRODUCTION To our knowledge, there is no published data on the pharmacokinetic (PK) profile of antiretroviral (ART) drugs on patients undergoing extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) therapy. We present PK analyses of Ritonavir, Darunavir, Lamivudine and Tenofovir in a patient with HIV who required veno-venous ECMO (VV ECMO). METHODS Plasma(More)
A previously fit and well man developed acute respiratory failure due to environmental mould exposure from living in damp rental accommodation. Despite aggressive intensive care management he rapidly deteriorated and required respiratory and cardiac Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation. We hypothesize that poor domiciliary conditions may make an(More)
