The fourth stomach of ruminating animals. It is also called the "true" stomach. It is an elongated pear-shaped sac lying on the floor of the abdomen, on the right-hand side, and roughly between the seventh and twelfth ribs. It leads to the beginning of the small intestine. (From Black's Veterinary Dictionary, 17th ed)
The second stomach of ruminants. It lies almost in the midline in the front of the abdomen, in contact with the liver and diaphragm and communicates freely with the RUMEN via the ruminoreticular orifice. The lining of the reticulum is raised into folds forming a honeycomb pattern over the surface. (From Concise Veterinary Dictionary, 1988)
The third stomach of ruminants, situated on the right side of the abdomen at a higher level than the fourth stomach and between this latter and the second stomach, with both of which it communicates. From its inner surface project large numbers of leaves or folia, each of which possesses roughened surfaces. In the center of each folium is a band of muscle fibers which produces a rasping movement of the leaf when it contracts. One leaf rubs against those on either side of it, and large particles of food material are ground down between the rough surfaces, preparatory to further digestion in the succeeding parts of the alimentary canal.

Infection with nematodes of the genus HAEMONCHUS, characterized by digestive abnormalities and anemia similar to that from hookworm infestation.
Pathological processes involving the STOMACH.
The first stomach of ruminants. It lies on the left side of the body, occupying the whole of the left side of the abdomen and even stretching across the median plane of the body to the right side. It is capacious, divided into an upper and a lower sac, each of which has a blind sac at its posterior extremity. The rumen is lined by mucous membrane containing no digestive glands, but mucus-secreting glands are present in large numbers. Coarse, partially chewed food is stored and churned in the rumen until the animal finds circumstances convenient for rumination. When this occurs, little balls of food are regurgitated through the esophagus into the mouth, and are subjected to a second more thorough mastication, swallowed, and passed on into other parts of the compound stomach.

Effects of increasing ruminally degraded nitrogen and abomasal casein infusion on net portal flux of nutrients in yearling heifers consuming a high-grain diet. (1/204)

Seven Meat Animal Research Center (MARC) III heifers (410+/-25 kg) fitted with hepatic portal, mesenteric venous, carotid catheters, and an abomasal cannula were used in a 7 x 5 incomplete Latin square design experiment. The objective was to evaluate the effects of increasing levels of ruminally degradable N (RDN) with or without the addition of abomasally infused casein on portal-drained visceral (PDV) flux of nutrients. Treatments consisted of dietary CP percentage levels of 9.5 (control), control plus .72% dietary urea (11.5U), control plus 1.44% dietary urea (13.5U), control plus abomasally infused casein (250 g/d; 11.5C), or control plus .72% dietary urea and abomasally infused casein (250 g/d; 13.5UC). All diets contained (DM basis) 80% ground corn, 15% corn silage, and 5% dry supplement and were provided for ad libitum consumption. Nitrogen intake increased (linear, P < .001) as CP increased from 9.5 to 13.5%. Portal-drained visceral release of ammonia N increased (linear, P < .10) as RDN increased, and was greater (P < .05) when protein was fed compared with heifers fed control (P < .10). Urea N removal by PDV was not affected ( P > . 10) by level of RDN but was greatest when 11.5C was fed and least when 13.5UC was fed. Net alpha-amino N (AAN) release by PDV was greatest when 13.5UC was fed (309 mmol/h), least when 9.5% CP was fed (112 mmol/h), and intermediate for the other groups (205 to 252 mmol/h). These data suggest that removal of N by the PDV may promote microbial protein synthesis when dietary RDN is low. When RDN needs have been met and amino acids are deficient for the host, escape protein should be fed to increase amino acid absorption.  (+info)

Vagotomy suppresses cephalic phase insulin release in sheep. (2/204)

The effect of selective vagotomy of the abomasum, pylorus, duodenum and liver on insulin release during the cephalic phase of digestion was investigated in wethers and lactating ewes. Electrical stimulation of the cervical vagus nerves was carried out to test the completeness of the vagotomies performed. In experiment 1, using wethers, the abomasal, pyloric and duodenal branches (ADV; n = 7) or the hepatic, abomasal, pyloric and duodenal branches (HADV; n = 10) of the ventral and/or dorsal vagus nerves were cut; a third group of wethers underwent sham-operation (SO; n = 8). In experiment 2, vagotomy (ADV; n = 5) or sham-operations (SO; n = 5) were carried out in lactating ewes. Jugular blood was drawn before and after presentation of food for glucose and insulin determination (experiments 1 and 2) or before, during and after the electrical stimulation of the peripheral ends of the cut cervical vagus nerves in randomly selected lactating ewes (experiment 3: ADV = 3, SO = 3) and wethers (experiment 4: ADV = 4, HADV = 4, SO = 4), for determination of insulin only. Presentation of food caused an immediate and significant (P < 0.05) rise in plasma insulin levels in SO animals compared with ADV or HADV wethers (experiment 1) or ADV ewes (experiment 2) without any significant change in blood glucose concentrations. In comparison with the SO group the baseline-corrected areas under the insulin response curve were significantly (P < 0.05) smaller for the respective vagotomized groups for periods 1-2, 2-4 and 4-6 min (experiment 1) and 1-2 and 2-4 min (experiment 2) after presentation of food. Total area under the response curve for 10 min was significantly (P < 0.05) lower (experiment 1) and tended (P < 0.10) to be lower (experiment 2) for the vagotomized groups compared with that of the control groups. Direct electrical stimulation of the cervical vagus nerves raised plasma insulin concentrations to significantly (P < 0.05) higher levels in the SO ewes but not in the ADV ewes (experiment 3). It was also evident that in experiment 1, HADV did not have any additive effect over that achieved by ADV alone. These results indicate that the vagal innervation of the gut mediates insulin release during the cephalic phase of feeding in sheep. It is concluded that insulin secretion from the pancreatic -cells in response to either food-related reflex activation of the vagal nuclei in the hypothalamus or direct cervical vagus nerve stimulation is mediated through the vagal efferent fibres carried in the abomasal, pyloric and duodenal branches of the vagus nerves in sheep.  (+info)

Phylogenetic characterization of 'Candidatus Helicobacter bovis', a new gastric helicobacter in cattle. (3/204)

Recently helicobacter-like organisms have been reported in the pyloric part of the abomasum of calves and adult cattle. Cultivation of these spiral bacteria has not been successful to date. In the present study, comparative 16S rDNA sequence analysis was used to determine the taxonomic position of these bacteria. Seven abomasal biopsies of adult cattle were sampled from different Belgian and Dutch farms. In all samples the presence of helicobacter-like organisms was demonstrated by biochemical, immunohistochemical and electron microscopical data. Bacterial 16S rDNA was amplified by PCR and sequences were determined either by direct or indirect sequence analysis. Pairwise comparisons revealed all sequences to be more than 99% homologous. Phylogenetic analysis placed the organism, corresponding to the reference sequence R2XA, within the genus Helicobacter. A diagnostic PCR assay was designed, differentiating all of the bovine 16S rDNA sequences from Helicobacter and Wolinella species. The low similarity level towards Helicobacter bilis (92.8%), its closest validly named neighbour, indicates that this novel taxon is indeed a novel Helicobacter species. An in situ hybridization procedure associated the bovine sequences to the helicobacter-like organisms in the abomasum. The name 'Candidatus Helicobacter bovis' is proposed for this new abomasal helicobacter from cattle.  (+info)

Development of a selective medium for isolation of Helicobacter pylori from cattle and beef samples. (4/204)

Helicobacter pylori has been isolated from the human stomach with media containing only minimal selective agents. However, current research on the transmission and sources of infection requires more selective media due to the higher numbers of contaminants in environmental, oral, and fecal samples. The objective of this study was to develop and evaluate detection techniques that are sufficiently selective to isolate H. pylori from potential animal and food sources. Since H. pylori survives in the acidic environment of the stomach, low pH with added urea was studied as a potential selective combination. H. pylori grew fairly well on H. pylori Special Peptone plating medium supplemented with 10 mM urea at pH 4. 5, but this pH did not sufficiently inhibit the growth of contaminants. Various antibiotic combinations were then compared, and a combination consisting of 10 mg of vancomycin per liter, 5 mg of amphotericin B per liter, 10 mg of cefsulodin per liter, 62,000 IU of polymyxin B sulfate per liter, 40 mg of trimethoprim per liter, and 20 mg of sulfamethoxazole per liter proved to be highly selective but still allowed robust colonies of H. pylori to grow. This medium was highly selective for recovering H. pylori from cattle and beef samples, and it is possible that it could be used to enhance the recovery of this bacterium from human and environmental samples, which may be contaminated with large numbers of competing microorganisms.  (+info)

Cross-sectional study of the association of abomasal displacement or volvulus with serum electrolyte and mineral concentrations in dairy cows. (5/204)

The objective of this study was to evaluate serum mineral and electrolyte concentrations at the time of on-farm diagnosis of left displaced abomasum, right displaced abomasum, or abomasal volvulus in dairy cows. Data were collected from 104 affected cows and 96 control cows matched with cases, based on herd, parity, and stage of lactation. Cows with abomasal displacement or volvulus had significantly lower calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, potassium, and chloride concentrations and increased anion gap at the time of diagnosis compared with control cows from the same herds. The percentages of cases and controls with total serum calcium concentrations below the lower limit of the laboratory reference range (2.08 mmol/L [8.3 mg/dL]) were 70% and 23%, respectively. Based on the large percentage of cases with hypocalcemia, administering calcium salts at the time of treatment of field cases of abomasal displacement or volvulus may be beneficial.  (+info)

Influence of abomasal infusion of high levels of lysine or methionine, or both, on ruminal fermentation, eating behavior, and performance of lactating dairy cows. (6/204)

Four multiparous late-lactation Holstein cows were fed a basal ration designed to be co-limiting in intestinally absorbable supplies of methionine and lysine. Cows were supplemented with no amino acids, lysine by abomasal infusion to 140% of the calculated intestinally absorbable requirement, methionine by abomasal infusion to 140% of requirement, or both amino acids in a 4 x 4 Latin square design with 28-d periods. Unsupplemented cows consumed 23.8 kg/d of dry matter and produced 36.9 kg/d of milk containing 3.70% fat, 3.22% protein, and 4.82% lactose. Cows ate less dry matter and produced less milk and milk lactose, and tended (P = .06 or .08) to produce less milk protein when abomasally infused with methionine alone or together with lysine. Infusion of lysine alone resulted in production values numerically between those of unsupplemented cows and those cows supplemented with methionine alone or together with lysine. Evaluation of the results with two metabolic models of dairy cows indicated that performance of unsupplemented cows may have been limited by delivery of metabolizable or digestible protein, or intestinally absorbable lysine, isoleucine, or histidine, depending on the metabolic model used to evaluate animal performance. Regardless, results are consistent with those using nonruminant species, which have shown that imbalanced profiles of intestinally absorbable amino acids are associated with reduced dry matter intake and animal performance. Results also show that negative effects on performance of lactating dairy cows can occur if methionine is supplied at levels substantially in excess of calculated intestinally absorbable requirements, either alone or together with lysine.  (+info)

Isolation and characterization of a novel inducible mammalian galectin. (7/204)

A novel mammalian galectin cDNA (ovgal11) was isolated by representational difference analysis from sheep stomach (abomasal) tissue infected with the nematode parasite, Haemonchus contortus. The mRNA is greatly up-regulated in helminth larval infected gastrointestinal tissue subject to inflammation and eosinophil infiltration. Immunohistological analysis indicates that the protein is localized in the cytoplasm and nucleus of upper epithelial cells of the gastrointestinal tract. The protein is also detected in mucus samples collected from infected abomasum but not from uninfected tissue. The restricted and inducible expression of ovgal11 mRNA and limited secretion of the protein support the hypothesis that OVGAL11 may be involved in gastrointestinal immune/inflammatory responses and possibly protection against infection.  (+info)

The effect of the plasma glucose level on the abomasal function in dairy cows. (8/204)

We have studied the effect of plasma glucose level on the abomasal outflow rate of fluid using a hyperinsulinemic glucose clamp technique in dairy cows. Four nonpregnant, nonlactating cows were subjected to one of the following treatments: hyperinsulinemic normoglycemic clamp; hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemic clamp; hyperinsulinemic hyperglycemic clamp; or, as a control, an intravenous infusion of .9% sodium chloride in a Latin square design. The cows were previously fitted with a permanent fistula in the abomasum and the outflow rate of abomasal fluid was determined using Co-EDTA as a marker assuming that the outflow followed first-order kinetics. The abomasal pH was also registered. Insulin was infused continuously through a jugular catheter at a rate of 4.8 mU. kg(-1)min(-1) for 2.5 h in the three clamp treatments. A glucose solution was infused through the catheter at a variable rate to achieve a circulating concentration, near the preinfusion glucose level (approximately 4.1 mmol/L), 2 mmol/L below the preinfusion level, and 2 mmol/L above the preinfusion level for the three hyperinsulinemic treatments, respectively. There was a significant effect of treatment on the rate of abomasal outflow (P < .001). The rate of abomasal outflow was highest for the control treatment (7.8%/min). The slowest outflow was observed in the hyperglycemic cows (3.40%/min). The hypoglycemic and normoglycemic cows showed intermediate rates (6.0%/min and 5.2%/min, respectively). The rate of outflow for the hyperglycemic cows was significantly lower than for all the other treatments (P < .01). Abomasal pH was affected by treatment (P < .05). The highest pH was observed in the hyperglycemic cows (pH 2.3). The values for the other three treatments ranged from pH 1.9 to 2.0. These results show that hyperglycemia reduced the rate of outflow and increased the pH of abomasal fluid in dairy cows. An elevated plasma glucose level thus can be considered as a potential risk factor in the pathogenesis of left-displaced abomasum.  (+info)

During the last six weeks of the dry period, eight Holstein-Friesian cows were fed a restricted amount of grass silage; after calving, a mixture of maize silage and concentrates was offered in a feeding regimen designed to induce a displacement of the abomasum. In the first month after calving, the cows were monitored for the following variables: feed intake and composition, milk production, the position of the abomasum, and the pH and osmolality of the rumen contents. In five of the eight cows, a left displacement of the abomasum occurred between four and 21 days after calving in the absence of other diseases. The displacement was temporary, lasting between five and 36 consecutive hours and one or two days in two of the cows (floaters), and for three or more days in the other three. Before these three cows developed the displacement, their abomasum was 4.3 to 7.9 cm higher, its contents had a higher mean osmolality (+19.2 mosmol/kg), and the ratio of roughage to concentrates in their feed was ...
Electromyographic (EMG) recordings of the reticulum, abomasal corpus, pyloric antrum and duodenum of six dairy cows with left displacement of the abomasum (LDA) were made in order to substantiate abomasal atony as a prerequisite to abomasal displacement. EMG recordings were made when LDA was present as well as when absent. Mean values were determined in five of six cows for the maximum peak or amplitude, mean peak values, peak-to-peak interval and count of the electrical response activity (ERA) for each 15 min segment of the waveform recordings. Segments containing phase III migrating myoelectric activity were not analysed. LDA positive periods were compared to LDA negative periods in each cow. The 6 h period (transition period) prior to the diagnosis of LDA was analysed separately. Paired t-tests were applied to group values with statistical significance established at the P = 0.05 level. There was a significant decrease in the ERA count during the LDA positive periods in the abomasal corpus (-1.40% to
Previous studies indicated large, thin-walled, milk-filled rumens in lethal grey and white Karakul lambs. There was also a significant decrease in the number and size of the myenteric plexuses and the number of ganglion cells in these lambs. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the myenteric ganglia of the affected lambs are functional, by testing for the presence of vaso-active intestinal peptide, somatostatin, neurotensin, neuropeptide Y, met-enkephalin, calcitonin gene-related peptide and substance P in the myenteric ganglia and nerve fibres in the forestomach and abomasum of grey, white and black Karakul lambs. Four 1-cm² samples were taken from analogous areas of the wall of the rumen, reticulum, omasum and abomasum of five grey, five white and five black newborn Karakul lambs. They were pinned to wax squares, fixed for 18 h in Zambonis fixative, dehydrated and rehydrated through graded alcohols and stored in phosphate-buffered saline. The outer longitudinal muscle layer of ...

All herds in the present study had generally overconditioned dry cows. Several studies have shown that overconditioned dry cows have a greater depression of feed intake ap and pp and deeper negative energy balance than cows with a lower body condition [1, 2]. In the present study 13% to 38% of the cows in all herds lost over 1.0 unit in BCS in early lactation, up to six weeks pp (Table 3). High BCS ap, as well as major losses in body condition have been associated with abomasal displacement, ketosis and other metabolism related diseases, decreased fertility and increased culling rates [2, 34, 35]. The high BCS ap and loss of BCS pp in all 5 herds most likely were major contributing factors to the herd problems with metabolic disorders.. Assessing the metabolic blood profiles may aid in investigating the herd problems by indicating the severity and timing of disturbed energy metabolism. Thus herds A and C had higher levels of NEFA ap than the other herds, for herd C mainly during the last week ...
When a goat kid is born, the rumen is small and the abomasum is the largest of the four stomach compartments. The rumen of a goat kid is about 30 percent of the total stomach area, while the abomasum is about 70 percent. Hence, digestion in the goat kid is like that of a monogastric animal. In the suckling goat kid, closure of the esophageal groove ensures that milk is channeled directly to the abomasum instead of going through the rumen, reticulum, and omasum. Peptic cells in the abomasum of young milk-fed ruminants secrete, in addition to pepsin, the enzyme rennin. This enzyme is responsible for forming milk curdles and digesting milk protein ...

In tropical regions, protein supplementation is a common practice in dairy and beef farming. However, the effect of highly degradable protein in ruminal fermentation and microbial community composition has not yet been investigated in a systematic manner. In this work, we aimed to investigate the impact of casein supplementation on volatile fatty acids (VFA) production, specific activity of deamination (SAD), ammonia concentration and bacterial and archaeal community composition. The experimental design was a 4×4 Latin square balanced for residual effects, with four animals (average initial weight of 280±10 kg) and four experimental periods, each with duration of 29 days. The diet comprised Tifton 85 (Cynodon sp.) hay with an average CP content of 9.8%, on a dry matter basis. Animals received basal forage (control) or infusions of pure casein (230 g) administered direct into the rumen, abomasum or divided (50 : 50 ratio) in the rumen/abomasum. There was no differences (P,0.05) in ruminal pH ...

The gastrointestinal tract (GIT) of animals is capable of sensing various kinds of nutrients via G-protein coupled receptor-mediated signaling transduction pathways, and the process is known as gut nutrient chemosensing. GPR40, GPR41, GPR43 and GPR119 are chemoreceptors for free fatty acids (FFAs) and lipid derivatives, but they are not well studied in small ruminants. The objective of this study is to determine the expression of GPR40, GPR41, GPR43 and GPR119 along the GIT of kid goats under supplemental feeding (S) v. grazing (G) during early development. In total, 44 kid goats (initial weight 1.35±0.12 kg) were slaughtered for sampling (rumen, abomasum, duodenum, jejunum, ileum, cecum, colon and rectum) between days 0 and 70. The expression of GPR41 and GPR43 were measured at both mRNA and protein levels, whereas GPR40 and GPR119 were assayed at protein level only. The effects of age and feeding system on their expression were variable depending upon GIT segments, chemoreceptors and ...

Play media A hairball is a small collection of hair or fur formed in the stomach of animals, and uncommonly in humans, that is occasionally vomited up when it becomes too big. Hairballs are formed from hair or fur that is delivered into stomach orally. Hairballs are primarily a tight elongated cylinder of packed fur, but may include bits of other elements such as swallowed food. Animals with hairballs are sometimes mistaken as having other conditions of the stomach such as lymphosarcoma, tuberculosis, and tumor of the spleen. Felids are especially prone to hairball formation since they groom themselves by licking their fur, and thereby ingest it. Rabbits are also prone to hairballs because they groom themselves in the same fashion as cats, but hairballs are especially dangerous for rabbits because they cannot regurgitate them. Due to the digestive systems of rabbits being very fragile, hairballs in rabbits must be treated immediately or they may cause the animal to stop feeding and ultimately ...
Left-sided displacement of the abomasum (LDA) is a common disease in many dairy cattle breeds. A genome-wide screen for QTL for LDA in German Holstein (GH) cows indicated motilin (MLN) as a candidate gene on bovine chromosome 23. Genomic DNA sequence analysis of MLN revealed a total of 32 polymorphisms. All informative polymorphisms used for association analyses in a random sample of 1,136 GH cows confirmed MLN as a candidate for LDA. A single nucleotide polymorphism (FN298674:g.90T|C) located within the first non-coding exon of bovine MLN affects a NKX2-5 transcription factor binding site and showed significant associations (ORallele = 0.64; −log10Pallele = 6.8, −log10Pgenotype = 7.0) with LDA. An expression study gave evidence of a significantly decreased MLN expression in cows carrying the mutant allele (C). In individuals heterozygous or homozygous for the mutation, MLN expression was decreased by 89% relative to the wildtype. FN298674:g.90T|C may therefore play a role in bovine LDA via the
Many owners know that cats can have a hairball or two, but do you know why? Better yet, do you know how to get rid of them? This blog can help answer those cat hairball questions.. While there are many jokes surrounding hairballs, they are no laughing matter. Hairballs in cats arent just unpleasant to clean up, they can cause some serious blockages in the intestinal tract if they arent removed-one way or another.. A hairball results from the grooming routine of your pet. When a cat grooms itself, tiny hook-like structures grab dead hair and loose hair. The animal then swallows all that hair! It sounds gross to us humans, but as the saying goes, a cat has got to do what a cat has got to do. For the most part, the hair that your pet swallows usually passes easily through the entire digestive tract and ends up in the litter box. However, the problem is when some of the hair remains in the stomach and doesnt get passed through. That particular bunch of hair results in the vomited hairball that ...

ANSWER: How Do I Treat My Dogs Hairballs? A hairball rattling round in the stomach causes irritation. Giving a gentle lubricant (such as a liquid paraffin product designed for relieve hairballs in cats) can help the dog to bring it up. Hairballs that are stuck in the gut require surgical removal by
The internal mucosa has a honeycomb shape. When looking at the reticulum with ultrasonography it is a crescent shaped structure with a smooth contour.[2] The reticulum is adjacent to the diaphragm, lungs, abomasum, rumen and liver. The heights of the reticular crests and depth of the structures vary across ruminant animal species.[3] Grazing ruminants have higher crests than browsers. However, general reticulum size is fairly constant across ruminants of differing body size and feeding type. In a mature cow, the reticulum can hold around 5 gallons of liquid. The rumen and reticulum are very close in structure and function and can be considered as one organ. They are separated only by a muscular fold of tissue. In immature ruminants a reticular groove is formed by the muscular fold of the reticulum. This allows milk to pass by the reticulorumen straight into the abomasum. ...
A 6-year old American La Mancha Doe presented for abdominal distention, recumbency, and hypothermia. On presentation, she was obtunded with a severe metabolic alkalosis that was nonresoponsive to fluid supplementation. An abdominal ultrasound examination revealed a distended abomasum. A proximal duodenal or pyloric obstruction was presumed based on sonographic findings and lack of response to medical therapy. An exploratory celiotomy was performed revealing no obstruction of the duodenum or pylorus. Approximately six liters of impacted feed were removed from the abomasum. A diagnosis of idiopathic abomasal impaction was made. The goat recovered with minimal complications, and is reportedly doing well several months after discharge from the hospital. Abomasal impaction is rarely reported in goats. A similar syndrome in Suffolk sheep has been described, but is most often not associated with a successful outcome. This case report describes successful surgical treatment of an abomasal impaction in ...

Hairballs in cats The elusive and very unpleasant hairball is something that every cat owner will experience at some point. Cats in general are very clean and well-kept animals and grooming is an essential routine for them to ensure their cleanliness. A healthy cat is one that grooms. Hairballs are simply a by-product of your cats hygiene. A trichobezoar, commonly known as a hairball, is a clump of indigestible hair, moistened by bile and digestive fluid that may or may not contain bits of food or other foreign material. Hairballs are not usually round in shape but rather drawn-out and the shape of a sausage. This is due to their passage through the oesophagus, the tube connecting the stomach to the mouth, which is long and cylindrical. Hairballs can occasionally resemble faeces but on closer examination one will notice it is made up of hair. It also does not smell like faeces although it does not have a particularly pleasant odour.

Hairballs are a normal part of being a cat. Most cats have at some time coughed up one of the nasty things, and most of the time, hairballs are harmless. Particularly meticulous kitties who groom themselves obsessively are especially susceptible to the pesky tube-shaped clumps.
2/10. I didnt sleep at all last night, but arose in a bit of a groggy state to talk to another Ultrasound tech who checked me again for blood flow. Once again, my vein clotted up overnight, much to my and Dr. Aratas disappointment. OK, again back to the NPO (no food or drink) and into the Cath lab at about 5:30. This time, Dr. Arata installed an infusion catheter from my right groin leading up to my left jugular. An infusion catheter is a bit like a garden soaker hose that will distribute medication directly to the area its needed. The medication is TPA (Tissue Plasminogen Activator), which is a blood thinner that not only prevents clots, but actually melts clots away. TPA is usually used in stroke patients to help melt clots. Its a powerful medication, but the bad news was it has to be administered in the infusion catheter which required I keep my leg straight and not lift my head. Furthermore, TPA is so powerful and the risk of bleeding so profuse that I had to be placed into the ICU and ...
Colostrum Ingestion: colostrum in the lambs abomasum immediately caudal to the costal arch can readily be detected by gentle palpation. For every Kg of body weight, 200mls of colostrum should be consumed during the first 24 hours of life. 50mls/kg is required in the first few hours of birth. If the lamb has not nursed then methods should be undertaken to promote it to happen. Firstly, restrain the ewe and point the lamb towards the teat to see if the nursing will take place. If not then a bottle may be needed. If it is an emergency, a stomach tube should be used to give milk stripped from a dam, another ewe or bovine colostrum ...
lamprey in Florence, via De Macci: Lampredotto is a typical Florentine peasant dish, made from the fourth and final stomach of a cow, the abomasum.

Lampredotto was originally a poor persons and workmans sandwich.

The Awl-which I totally and unabashedly love-has a piece on the over-promise and under-delivery of personal genomics. Its a familiar meme and probably not news to Genomeboy readers (both of you!) that a fair number of folks feel this way. I have some sympathy for the too much hype argument, especially in light of how complicated common diseases and traits have turned out to be and how the personal genomics industry (if we can still call it that) has declined to come together to develop standards, choosing instead to fend off the annual sabre-rattling by the FDA on an ad hoc basis.. As I recall, I spent a long time on the phone with the Awl writer and said many things, including this:. It turns out to be just a total fucking mess. So instead of having this linear icon representing human biology, the most potent symbol now is the hairball..
