INTRODUCTION To compare the safety and efficacy of high frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) with conventional mechanical ventilation (CV) for early intervention in adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), a multi-centre randomized trial in four intensive care units was conducted. METHODS Patients with ARDS were randomized to receive either HFOV or(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the safety and efficacy of an early enteral pharmaconutrition supplement containing glutamine dipeptides, antioxidative vitamins and trace elements, and butyrate in critically ill, septic patients. DESIGN A prospective, randomized, controlled, double-blind clinical trial. SETTING Adult intensive care unit in a university hospital. (More)
The last decade has seen increased appreciation of ventilator-induced lung injury. The understanding that the process of mechanical ventilation can itself damage lungs has spurned the search for ventilation strategies that are more lung protective. High-frequency oscillatory ventilation is a mode of high-frequency ventilation that may accomplish all of the(More)
In this paper, we survey the nature of spinors and supersymmetry (SUSY) in various types of spaces. We treat two distinct types of spaces: flat spaces and spaces of constant (non-zero) curvature. The flat spaces we consider are either three or four dimensional of signatures 3 + 1, 4 + 0, 2 + 2 and 3 + 0. In each of these cases, SUSY generators anti-commute(More)
