  • Blood Gases
  • Blood gases are a group of tests that are performed together to measure the pH and the amount of oxygen (O 2 ) and carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) present in a sample of blood, usually from an artery, in order to evaluate lung function and help detect an acid-base imbalance that could indicate a respiratory, metabolic or kidney disorder . (labtestsonline.org)
  • Blood gases may also be used to monitor treatment for lung diseases and to evaluate the effectiveness of supplemental oxygen therapy. (labcorp.com)
  • Blood gases are used to detect an acid-base imbalance, such as can occur with kidney failure, heart failure, uncontrolled diabetes, severe infections, and drug overdose. (labcorp.com)
  • When someone is "on oxygen" (ventilation), blood gases may be measured at intervals to monitor the effectiveness of treatment. (labcorp.com)
  • Other treatments for lung diseases may also be monitored with blood gases. (labcorp.com)
  • Blood gases may also be ordered when someone has head or neck trauma, which may affect breathing, and when someone is undergoing prolonged anesthesia - particularly for cardiac bypass surgery or brain surgery - to monitor blood gases during, and for a period after, the procedure. (labcorp.com)
  • Checking blood gases from the umbilical cord of a newborn may uncover respiratory problems as well as determine acid/base status. (labcorp.com)
  • atoms
  • Quantum gases - collections of atoms cooled to the lowest known temperatures in the universe, have sparked a revolution in atomic physics. (edu.au)
  • In the ultracold Fermi gas experimental group we use gases of Li-6 atoms, cooled to temperatures below 100nK, to investigate strongly correlated fermions in the crossover from a Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer (BCS) superfluid of Cooper pairs to a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) of molecules. (edu.au)
  • civilians
  • One application of the Nazis' gas van became known in 1943 after the trial of members of crimes against humanity committed in the territory of the Krasnodar Krai of the USSR, where about 7,000 civilians were killed by gas poisoning [ citation needed ] . (wikipedia.org)
  • The existence of gas vans first came to light in 1943 during the trial of Nazi collaborators involved in the gassing of 6,700 civilians in Krasnodar . (wikipedia.org)
  • Atomic
  • Taking advantage of the precise control and purity available in atomic systems, quantum gases are now being used to address a range of questions in many-body quantum physics. (edu.au)
  • helium
  • Helium is typically separated from natural gas , and radon is usually isolated from the radioactive decay of dissolved radium compounds. (princeton.edu)
  • compounds
  • their outer shell of valence electrons is considered to be "full", giving them little tendency to participate in chemical reactions, and it has only been possible to prepare a few hundred noble gas compounds . (princeton.edu)
  • Electricity
  • The Gas and Electricity Acts, and the Health and Safety in Employment Act, each contain requirements to report certain accidents and incidents. (energysafety.govt.nz)
  • A notifiable electrical or gas accident is one involving gas or electricity that results in serious injury or death and/or significant damage to property. (energysafety.govt.nz)
  • Notifiable electrical and gas accidents are defined in section 16 of the Electricity Act 1992 and section 17 of the Gas Act 1992 . (energysafety.govt.nz)
  • If an electricity or gas accident in a workplace results in serious harm to any person (including a member of the public), or significant property damage, then WorkSafe New Zealand should be contacted as soon as possible at 0800 030 040. (energysafety.govt.nz)
  • You may be required to provide additional details as per the Gas (Safety & Measurement) Regulations 2010 or Electricity (Safety) Regulations 2010. (energysafety.govt.nz)
  • Natural gas is a fossil fuel used as a source of energy for heating, cooking, and electricity generation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Before electricity became sufficiently widespread and economical to allow for general public use, gas was the most popular method of outdoor and indoor lighting in cities and suburbs . (wikipedia.org)
  • Natural gas peaker plants step in when electricity demand is high, but their days could be numbered. (inhabitat.com)
  • quantum
  • We have developed a technique to obtain local measurements of homogeneous parameters in a harmonically trapped quantum gas and used this to make in situ observations of pair condensation in a unitary Fermi gas. (edu.au)
  • The contact is a recently introduced parameter to characterise universal properties of strongly interacting quantum gases. (edu.au)
  • equation of st
  • The ideal gas concept is useful because it obeys the ideal gas law , a simplified equation of state , and is amenable to analysis under statistical mechanics . (princeton.edu)
  • We experimentally measure the thermodynamic equation of state of a 2D Fermi gas with tunable interactions. (edu.au)
  • Search
  • In fact, Jack goes to the flat each night to search for the jewels, and lighting the gas lights in it causes the lights to dim in the rest of the building. (wikipedia.org)
  • emissions
  • 11 April 2014, Rome - New FAO estimates of greenhouse gas data show that emissions from agriculture, forestry and fisheries have nearly doubled over the past fifty years and could increase an additional 30 percent by 2050, without greater efforts to reduce them. (fao.org)
  • This is the first time that FAO has released its own global estimates of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agriculture, forestry and other land use (AFOLU), contributing to the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). (fao.org)
  • With regards to climate change, this commitment translates to actions aimed at reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions at the university, departmental, and individual level. (vanderbilt.edu)
  • The vast majority of anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions (i.e., emissions produced by human activities) come from combustion of fossil fuels , principally coal , oil , and natural gas , with additional contributions coming from deforestation, changes in land use, soil erosion and agriculture (including livestock). (wikipedia.org)
  • Last week, NET Power officially began operations at its 50-megawatt, emissions-free natural gas power plant in. (inhabitat.com)
