Accumulation of deuterium oxide in body fluids after ingestion of D2O-labeled beverages.
D2O accumulation in serial samples of plasma and saliva was slower for ingested solutions containing 40 and 15% glucose and faster for hypotonic saline and a 6% carbohydrate-electrolyte solution, which appear to reflect known differences in gastric emptying and intestinal absorption of these beverages.

Air contaminants encountered by firefighters.
The concentrations of eight air contaminants suspected of causing acute and chronic health problems for firefighters were measured in over 200 fires in the City of Boston using a personal airExpand
Effects of ingesting 6% and 12% glucose/electrolyte beverages during prolonged intermittent cycling in the heat
The data suggest that the slow absorption of a 12% glucose/electrolyte beverage during prolonged intermittent exercise in the heat may increase the risk of gastrointestinal distress and thereby limit performance. Expand

Carbohydrate-electrolyte drinks: effects on endurance cycling in the heat.
Ingestion of MC can help maintain blood glucose and enhance performance of prolonged cycling exercise without compromising fluid replenishment. Expand
Foot impact force and intravascular hemolysis during distance running.
Findings support the theory that mechanical trauma to red blood cells occurring at footstrike is a major cause of hemolysis during running. Expand
Exposure of firefighters to toxic air contaminants.
A personal sampling apparatus for firefighters was developed to sample the fire atmosphere for CO, CO2, O2, NO2, HCI, HCN and pariculate content and CO presented a potential acute hazard and particulate concentrations were high. Expand
A monumental study--reconstruction of a 1920 granite shed.
A small granite shed in Barre, Vermont was operated for one week without any ventilation, protecting the granite cutters by means of respirators, and it appeared that 10 mppcf of granite dust was equivalent to about 0.2 mg/m3 of “respirable” free silica. Expand
