Physiological Parameters Of The Pulmonary Airflow

- In this experiment, several physiological parameters were observed in three patients before, during, and after moderate exercise. One of these parameters was the pulmonary airflow, which was recorded utilizing an Airflow Transducer. This device measures airflow using slight pressure differences created by the resistance of a screen inside the device. Pulmonary airflow is the rate of movement into and out of the lungs, and is directly proportional to the pressure difference of the intrapulmonary pressure and the atmospheric pressure, and inversely proportional to the resistance of the lungs (elasticity/diameter of air pathways).1 The BIOPAC program then can convert the airflow to volume of ai...   [tags: Heart, Muscle, Blood, Exercise physiology]

Parameters of Crisis Communication

- Introduction For the whole year of 2003, China was besieged by a strain of virus that masqueraded as pneumonia but inflicted a far more lethal effect (Jin et al, 2006, p.81). By all accounts, the mystery of how the SARS (Severe Respiratory Acute Syndrome) virus originated has remained largely unsolved (New York Times, 2003). What began as routine fever and cough in a Chinese physician, later identified as a super-carrier, rapidly spread to those who came into cursory contact with him, spiralling into a worldwide crisis and infecting people across Asia and as far as Canada (New York Times, 2003)....   [tags: Emergency Preparedness, Contagion]

The impact of Ig G levels on routine clinical biochemistry parameters in neonatal calves

- Summary: The minimisation of neonatal mortality is critical for the success of an animal management programme. The period between calving and weaning is the most crucial period in the animal's life. A major management tool that could be used to reduce health problems in calves is feeding with colostrum. Colostrum is rich in energy, protein and vitamins (especially vitamins A, D, E and B12). Most importantly, colostrum is essential for newborns, in that it contains high levels of immunoglobulins, which transfer passive immunity to the calf, and thereby, enable it to fight with infections....   [tags: Animal Science ]

The female beetles are found to deposit about 100 eggs loosely on commodities which hatch between 6- 10 days in territory weather conditions (Cabrera, 2007). The beetles that emerge as adult are capable of flight and do not feed as adult but create holes in the product to locate a suitable oviposition site (Papadopoulou, 2006). The shortest development period from egg to adult stage is 26 days at 30°C and 70 % relative humidity (Rees, 2004) (in what product?)

Wire-Electrical Discharge Machining

- Wire-electrical discharge machining (EDM) is a non-traditional machining process in which a pulsed voltage difference between a wire electrode and a conductive work piece initiates sparks which erode work piece material. Removing material in such a way is often advantageous when the work piece material would be difficult to machine with traditional machine tools due to high strength, hardness, toughness, etcetera (Newton, 2008). Due to the process itself, EDM are able to produce any complex shape but at the loss of surface integrity and some other after effect like Kerf width, Heat affected zone and etc....   [tags: non-traditional machining processes]

TLBO ALgorithms and Optimization

- Optimization, in simple terms, means minimize the cost incurred and maximize the profit such as resource utilization. EAs are population based metaheuristic (means optimize problem by iteratively trying to improve the solution with regards to given measure of quality) optimization algorithms that often perform well on approximating solution to all types of problem because they do not make any assumptions about the underlying evaluation of fitness function. There are many EAs available viz. Genetic Algorithm (GA) [1] , Artificial Immune Algorithm (AIA) [2], Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) [3], Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) [4], Differential Evolution (DE) [5, 6], Harmony Search (HS) [7], Ba...   [tags: Application, System, Implementation]

A High-Voltage Compliant Microelectrode Array Driver for Neuro Prosthesis: Effects of Process Variation

- 1. INTRODUCTION The loss of physiological functions can be restored partially or completely using functional electrical stimulation and this mechanism has been used in a number of biomedical devices such as the mo- tor nerves stimulator [1], pacemaker, urinary implant [2], and cochlear implant [3]. The advance in microelectronic technologies is allowing the researchers to engineer highly miniaturized implantable integrated microsystems [4]. Some of these implantable advanced prosthetic devices use intracorti- cal functional electrical microstimulation for recovering diseases such as Parkinson and epilepsy [5]....   [tags: electric stimulation of brain]

The Effect Of Temperature On The Temperature Operating Spectrum

- The temperature operating spectrum varies from 2 to 80 °C, although practically, in the study of biomolecules, a narrower range of temperatures is used (usually from 10 to 35 °C). During an experiment cells are filled with liquid, with the reference cell used as a reference that usually contains water and the second cell (sample cell) contains the sample. The temperature is set by the user and is maintained at the same level between the cells and the jacket by heaters (resistances). The whole system is based on the constant power that is supplied to the reference cell, which in turn enables or disables the heater on the sample cell and provides a baseline power signal, the DP (differential p...   [tags: Thermodynamics, Entropy, Internal energy]
