  • Injury
  • The primary goals of stroke management are to reduce brain injury and promote maximum patient recovery. (wikipedia.org)
  • Brain injury is therefore the chief limiting factor for recovery from clinical death. (wikipedia.org)
  • Brain failure after clinical death is now known to be due to a complex series of processes called reperfusion injury that occur after blood circulation has been restored, especially processes that interfere with blood circulation during the recovery period. (wikipedia.org)
  • The combination of mildly reducing body temperature, reducing blood cell concentration, and increasing blood pressure after resuscitation was found especially effective-allowing for recovery of dogs after 12 minutes of clinical death at normal body temperature with practically no brain injury. (wikipedia.org)
  • The addition of a drug treatment protocol has been reported to allow recovery of dogs after 16 minutes of clinical death at normal body temperature with no lasting brain injury. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cooling treatment alone has permitted recovery after 17 minutes of clinical death at normal temperature, but with brain injury. (wikipedia.org)
  • The interruption results in a decrease or loss in motor function, sensation, or both below the level of injury and will also affect the bowel, bladder, and sexual function. (wikipedia.org)
  • chronic
  • Senior author Dr. Ingo Vernaleken, Professor at RWTH Aachen University in Germany, led a team of researchers examining dopamine function in chronic smokers before and after long-term cessation. (elsevier.com)
  • course of recovery
  • In type- II, which was a delayed recovery for a period as long as 6 hours following removal from the noise, the pure tone threshold remained elevated and stable before thresholds began to follow a monotonic course of recovery. (cdc.gov)
  • In type-III a growth function was noted in that over a period of at least 6 hours following removal from the noise, pure tone thresholds continued to worsen before they began to follow a monotonic course of recovery. (cdc.gov)
  • Two previous studies have suggested a protracted course of recovery of endothelial function following instrumentation during diagnostic angiography undertaken via the radial artery. (hindawi.com)
  • period
  • Under laboratory conditions at normal body temperature, the longest period of clinical death of a cat (after complete circulatory arrest) survived with eventual return of brain function is one hour. (wikipedia.org)
  • Experiments
  • Our first set of experiments will be to apply modern tracing techniques to fully understand the connectivity of this important area of the brain and importantly activate specific connections to examine their function in freely moving animals. (wingsforlife.com)
  • In summary our set of experiments will provide a detailed roadmap of connectivity and function in an area of the brain critical for goal-directed movements. (wingsforlife.com)
  • significant
  • No significant difference in 30-day mortality was observed between the LV function subgroups. (biomedsearch.com)
  • In addition, there are cardiopulmonary and vascular changes, including a significant decrease in red blood cell mass, that affect skeletal muscle function. (wikipedia.org)
  • better
  • Further research of preferential motor reinnervation will lead to a better understanding of peripheral nervous system function in the human body regarding cell roles and abilities. (wikipedia.org)
  • measure
  • Vasomotor function of the endothelium, mediated mainly by nitric oxide (NO) and widely accepted as a measure of generalized endothelial cell function, is readily determined by flow mediated dilation (FMD). (hindawi.com)
  • area
  • It has been proposed that this area, based on its structure and connectivity, has "a role in coordinating a set of diverse brain functions", and the claustrum has been elucidated as playing a crucial role in consciousness. (wikipedia.org)
  • the supplementary motor area (or SMA), has many proposed functions including the internally generated planning of movement, the planning of sequences of movement, and the coordination of the two sides of the body such as in bi-manual coordination. (wikipedia.org)
  • affect
  • The effects can range from the relatively mild to the catastrophic but all will, to some degree, affect the child's ability to function within an educational and / or social setting. (wikipedia.org)
  • allow
  • Variants of these algorithms allow for simultaneous reconstruction of the pupil function of an optical system, allowing for the correction of the aberrations of the microscope objective, and diffraction tomography which permits the 3D reconstruction of thin sample objects without requiring the angular sample scanning needed for CT scans.
