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)
Our study focused on the etilogy of specific behavioral problems rather than on a global syndrome such as hyerpactivity. As a first step in studying specific behavioral problems, we revised the Conners (1970) Parent Symptom Rating questionnaire to improve its factor structure. Our revised instrument and the test-retest reliabilities of its 12 scales are(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)
Abstract. 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(More)
