The AN/APG-66 is a digital, multimode, fire control radar that is the primary sensor for the F-16 air combat fighter. The detection and false alarm performance of this radar are described when it operates in its medium PRF pulse Doppler downlook mode. Descriptions are included of medium PRF clutter, the AN/APG-66 signal processing, the flight tests used to(More)
The effectiveness of intrauterine irrigation with an antibiotic solution of cefamandole nafate in reducing the incidence of endometritis after cesarean section was studied in a prospective, double-blind fashion. Ninety patients who underwent cesarean section at Tripler Army Medical Center were divided into three equal groups. Each group received one of the(More)
Amphetamines and methamphetamines are part of an important class of drugs included in most urine drugs of abuse screening panels, and a common assay to detect these drugs is the Amphetamines II immunoassay (Roche Diagnostics). To demonstrate that meta-chlorophenylpiperazine (m-CPP), a trazodone metabolite, cross-reacts in the Amphetamines II assay, we(More)
We report that use of the popular analgesic tramadol can cause false-positive urine buprenorphine results. We examined the extent of tramadol cross-reactivity in three point-of-care urine buprenorphine immunoassays (ACON, QuikStrip, and ABMC) and an instrument-based one (Cedia). We tested 29 urine samples from patients known to be taking tramadol. Ten(More)
CONTEXT Emergency department physicians frequently request urine drug screens, but many are unaware of their limitations, including the potential for false-positive results. Promethazine, a phenothiazine derivative, is used for the treatment of allergies, agitation, nausea, and vomiting. Many patients taking promethazine are subject to urine drug screens(More)
We report on the utility of urine total buprenorphine, total norbuprenorphine, and creatinine concentrations in patients treated with Suboxone (a formulation containing buprenorphine and naloxone), used increasingly for the maintenance or detoxification of patients dependent on opiates such as heroin or oxycodone. Patients received 8-24 mg/day(More)
The effectiveness of intrauterine irrigation during cesarean section with a solution of cefamandole nafate in reducing febrile morbidity was studied in a prospective double-blind fashion. Ninety patients who were undergoing cesarean section at Tripler Army Medical Center were randomized into three groups: (1) intrauterine irrigation with cefamandole nafate(More)
