Estimation of current density distribution under electrodes for external defibrillation. (1/43)BACKGROUND: Transthoracic defibrillation is the most common life-saving technique for the restoration of the heart rhythm of cardiac arrest victims. The procedure requires adequate application of large electrodes on the patient chest, to ensure low-resistance electrical contact. The current density distribution under the electrodes is non-uniform, leading to muscle contraction and pain, or risks of burning. The recent introduction of automatic external defibrillators and even wearable defibrillators, presents new demanding requirements for the structure of electrodes. METHOD AND RESULTS: Using the pseudo-elliptic differential equation of Laplace type with appropriate boundary conditions and applying finite element method modeling, electrodes of various shapes and structure were studied. The non-uniformity of the current density distribution was shown to be moderately improved by adding a low resistivity layer between the metal and tissue and by a ring around the electrode perimeter. The inclusion of openings in long-term wearable electrodes additionally disturbs the current density profile. However, a number of small-size perforations may result in acceptable current density distribution. CONCLUSION: The current density distribution non-uniformity of circular electrodes is about 30% less than that of square-shaped electrodes. The use of an interface layer of intermediate resistivity, comparable to that of the underlying tissues, and a high-resistivity perimeter ring, can further improve the distribution. The inclusion of skin aeration openings disturbs the current paths, but an appropriate selection of number and size provides a reasonable compromise. (+info)
ACUTE INFLAMMATION IN THE RENAL CORTEX AND MEDULLA FOLLOWING THERMAL INJURY. (2/43)As determined by serial histologic study, the leukocyte component of the acute inflammatory response to thermal injury in the medulla of the kidney of rabbits was markedly delayed and diminished in intensity when compared with the response of the cortex. Similar differences in granulocyte mobilization between cortex and medulla were seen following the inoculation of bacteria. Hydronephrosis produced by ureteral ligation had no discernible effect upon the inflammatory response in either cortex or medulla following thermal burns. The susceptibility of the cortex to E. coli infection was markedly enhanced during leukopenia induced by nitrogen-mustard. These results suggest that deficiencies in granulocyte mobilization play an important role in the increased susceptibility of the renal medulla to bacterial infection. (+info)
THE NEUROLOGICAL SEQUELAE OF ELECTRICAL INJURY. (3/43)Electricity is a potentially very dangerous commodity. Community safeguards, however, result in remarkably efficient control of this hazard. Mortality figures appear to be small and constant. No satisfactory morbidity figures are available with regard to general and neurological complications in non-fatal cases. Study of relevant features of such electrical phenomena as voltage level, resistance factors, current pathway, current diffusion and grounding reveals many difficulties in reconstruction of the sequence of events involved in these injuries. These features underline our frequent inability to understand the mechanisms of initiation of unconsciousness and even of differentiation between death by cardiac arrest and death by respiratory paralysis. Fourteen cases of electrical injury with a variety of neurological complications and sequelae are discussed, and the findings in these cases are compared with those of other observers. An attempt is made to present a comprehensive picture of immediate, secondary and late neurological effects, and to illustrate some of the pathological findings in electrocution material. (+info)
ELECTRICAL BURNS OF THE MOUTH. (4/43)The amount of tissue loss in electrical burns of the commissure usually is greater than is at first anticipated.

Burns and tracheo-oesophageal-cutaneous fistula. (5/43)We report an unusual case of electric burns suffered by a 15-yr-old boy. The patient's neck had come in contact with a high voltage broken electric wire and by reflex he had pulled it away with his right hand. He presented with a tracheo-cutaneous fistula with a right-sided pneumothorax. Emergency airway management included insertion of a tracheostomy tube through the traumatic opening in the neck and insertion of an intercostal tube drain. When the diagnostic endoscopy revealed an externally communicating tracheo-oesophageal fistula, protecting the lower airways from gastrointestinal contamination became a priority. The patient was anaesthetized through the traumatic tracheostomy and a formal low tracheostomy was done below the level of the fistula. The patient then underwent oesophageal reconstruction with a stomach free flap. Tracheo-oesophageal-cutaneous fistula is a rare presentation of electric burns. The anaesthetic management of the emergency difficult airway in any penetrating neck injury can be extremely difficult requiring a carefully planned multi-disciplinary approach. (+info)
Unusual explosive growth of a squamous cell carcinoma of the scalp after electrical burn injury and subsequent coverage by sequential free flap vascular connection--a case report. (6/43)BACKGROUND: Squamous cell carcinomos may arise from chronic ulcerating wounds in scars, most commonly postburn scars. Tumour growth usually takes place over months to years. Localization on the scalp is a relatively rare condition. CASE PRESENTATION: This report presents the case of a 63-year-old man with chronic ulceration of a postburn scar of the scalp due to an electrical burn 58 years ago. Sudden tumour growth started within weeks and on presentation already had extended through the skull into frontal cortex. After radical tumour resection, defect was covered with a free radial forearm flap. Local recurrence occurred 6 weeks later. Subsequent wide excision including discard of the flap and preservation of the radial vessels was followed by transfer of a free latissimus dorsi muscle flap, using the radial vessels of the first flap as recipient vessels. The patient received radiotherapy post-operatively. There were no problems with flap survivals or wound healing. Due to rapidly growing recurrence the patient died 2 months later. CONCLUSION: Explosive SCC tumour growth might occur in post-burn scars after more than 50 years. As a treatment option the use of sequential free flap connections might serve in repeated extensive tumour resections, especially in the scalp region, where suitable donor vessels are often located in distance to the defect.

Utilization of skin flap for reconstruction of the genitalia after an electric burn. (7/43)The objective of this article is to describe a case of an electric burn to the genitalia causing scrotal and testicular lesion, and the subsequent reconstruction using a skin graft. The patient was a 10-year-old boy who was victim of an electric burn that harmed the genitalia. There was extended skin loss, penile, scrotal and partial testicular lesion. The treatment consisted of plastic surgery to reconstruct the genitalia with skin flaps grafted on the left thigh, the scrotum and the base of the penis. The patient recovered well and was discharged after two weeks. We concluded that in severe cases of electric burns to the genitalia, skin graft offer a good therapeutic option. (+info)
Survival of an eight-year-old child with a very severe high-tension electrical burn injury: a case report. (8/43)We present the management and survival of an eight-year-old boy with a severe high-tension electrical burn injury of 68% of total body surface area in a surgical intensive care unit, as a result of a well-planned and applied treatment strategy. Subsequent to escharotomy and fasciotomy operations under general anesthesia, the patient was taken into the surgical intensive care unit. In addition, patient underwent nine more operations including right femur disarticulation and split-thickness skin graftings with homografts from his brother and autografts. The patient was connected to mechanical ventilator for 59 days. By the time the patient was transferred to plastic and reconstructive surgery ward, he was fully conscious, cooperated and hemodynamically stable. (+info)

An electrical burn is a burn that results from electricity passing through the body causing rapid injury. Approximately 1,000 deaths per year due to electrical injuries are reported in the United States, with a mortality rate of 3-5%. Electrical burns differ from thermal or chemical burns in that they cause much more subdermal damage. They can exclusively cause surface damage, but more often tissues deeper underneath the skin have been severely damaged. As a result, electrical burns are difficult to accurately diagnose, and many people underestimate the severity of their burn. In extreme cases, electricity can cause shock to the brain, strain to the heart, and injury to other organs. For a burn to be classified as electrical, electricity must be the direct cause. For example, burning a finger on a hot electric steam iron would be thermal, not electrical. Electricity passing through resistance creates heat, so there is no current entering the body in this type of burn. Likewise, a fire that is ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Effect of gas channel depth on current density distribution of polymer electrolyte fuel cell by numerical analysis including gas flow through gas diffusion layer. AU - Inoue, Gen. AU - Matsukuma, Yosuke. AU - Minemoto, Masaki. PY - 2006/6/19. Y1 - 2006/6/19. N2 - In order to apply a numerical analysis to design an actual scale separator in polymer electrolyte fuel cell (PEFC), it is needed to enlarge the calculation size. In this study, mass transfer and flow in gas diffusion layer were calculated, and gas diffusion layer (GDL) mass transfer approximate model based on the theoretical model was developed. Next, with this model, PEFC reaction and thermal flow analysis model, which enabled us to calculate the case of an actual scale cell, was made. Furthermore, the effects of separator channel depth on output performance and current density distribution were examined with this numerical analysis. As a result, in the case of shallow channels, the oxygen transfer rate to electrode ...
0096] Similarly as with the embodiments in FIGS. 2 through 7, in the embodiment in FIGS. 8 and 9 the different shapes of the electrode surfaces 320, 340, when the first jaw member 30 is in the first working position 301, cause a strong concentration of the current flow with a distinct maximum of current density in the vicinity of the edge 326 on the first electrode 32 and, when the first jaw member 30 is in the second working position 302, the smooth shape of the electrode surface 340 causes a markedly less concentrated current density distribution. The difference between the current density distributions in the working positions 301, 302 of the first jaw member 30 is, however, smaller in the embodiment in FIGS. 8 and 9 than in the embodiments in FIGS. 2 through 7 because the groove 426 on the electrode 42 of the second jaw member 40 corresponding to the edge 326 on the first electrode 32 of the first jaw member 30 partly counteracts the concentration of current density. In addition, the convex ...
Numerical modeling is becoming an integral part of all research and development within the field of electrolytic systems. A numerical model that calculates the current density distribution and concentration profiles of a chlorate cell is presented here, The results are shown as functions of electrolyte velocity and exchange current density. The model takes into account the three transport mechanisms; diffusion, migration, and convection by considering the development of the flow velocity vector through the channel. It was seen that the developing velocity profile influences the concentration overpotentials, which in turn influences current density distributions. Results from the model show that the total current density decreased along the length of the anode, and that this distribution varied more at lower velocities. In addition, it was seen that migration contributes significantly to species transport, even within the diffusion layer. Finally, the model indicates that the hypochlorite ion is ...

PY - 2006/3/9. Y1 - 2006/3/9. N2 - The small polymer electrolyte fuel cell (PEFC) was experimented by changing operation temperature and H2 and O2 concentration in supply gas, and the PEFC reaction characteristic model that can express these influences was created. Moreover, PEFC reaction and flow analysis model was made with this reaction characteristic model and thermal flow analysis model. Furthermore, in order to improve the performance and the safety of PEFC, five kinds of separators were evaluated from the viewpoint of state of gas flow, uniformity of current density and temperature, reduction of pressure loss and exhaustibility of liquid water with this PEFC reaction and flow analysis model. In case of parallel separator, flow rate and current density distribution was not uniform, and exhaustibility of ...
TY - CONF. T1 - MEG analysis with spatial filter and multiple linear regression. AU - Okawa, Shinpei. AU - Honda, Satoshi. PY - 2004/12/1. Y1 - 2004/12/1. N2 - A spatial filterlor MEG analysis which does not utilize any temporal and prior information is proposed. The spatial filter is normalized to satisfy the criterion which is derived from the definition of the spatial filter. Due to the normalization, the spatial filter outputs the largest value at its target position. Furthermore, the current density distribution estimated with spatial filter is localized with Mallows Cp statistic which selects an optimum regression model. Some numerical experiments verify that this method estimates almost correct positions of dipoles. It is also confirmed that new method we propose gives more reliable estimation than the conventional method which decides dipole on the position of the largest current density estimated with spatial filter iteratively.. AB - A spatial filterlor MEG analysis which does not ...
We investigate the effect of lattice geometry on the magnetic anisotropy and transport properties of Ni80Fe20 antidot nanostructures. The structures were fabricated using deep ultra-violet lithography at 248nm exposure wavelength. For an antidot array with a square lattice, a fourfold magnetic anisotropy with alternating hard axis and easy axis every 45° was observed. The honeycomb and rhomboid antidot lattice, however, both show a sixfold anisotropy, conforming well to the symmetry of their respective lattices. The magnetic hysteresis and micromagnetic simulation of the spin states at remanence show that the magnetization reversal process is very sensitive to the lattice arrangement of the holes. From the magnetotransport measurements, both the current density distribution and the magnetoresistance behaviour are markedly dependent on the antidot lattice geometry, in agreement with our transport simulations. © 2006 IOP Publishing Ltd ...
Continued From Above... The anterior muscles, such as the quadriceps femoris, iliopsoas, and sartorius, work as a group to flex the thigh at the hip and extend the leg at the knee. Posterior muscles, such as the hamstrings and gluteus maximus, produce the opposite motion - extension of the thigh at the hip and flexion of the leg at the knee. Lateral muscles, such as the gluteus medius, abduct the thigh at the hip while the medial groin muscles adduct the thigh. All of these muscle groups provide powerful contractions to propel the body while making fine adjustments to maintain the bodys posture and balance.. Located inferior to the knee are a number of muscles that move the ankle, foot, and toes. The calf muscles, including the gastrocnemius and soleus, join to form the strong calcaneal (Achilles) tendon of the heel and attach to the calcaneus bone in the heel. These muscles contract to plantar flex the foot - such as when standing on your tiptoes - and flex the toes. Shin muscles, such as the ...

Electrical injury is a physiological reaction caused by electric current passing through the (human) body. Electric shock occurs upon contact of a (human) body part with any source of electricity that causes a sufficient magnitude of current to pass through the victims flesh, viscera or hair. Physical contact with energized wiring or devices is the most common cause of an electric shock. In cases of exposure to high voltages, such as on a power transmission tower, physical contact with energized wiring or objects may not be necessary to cause electric shock, as the voltage may be sufficient to "jump" the air gap between the electrical device and the victim. The injury related to electric shock depends on the magnitude of the current. Very small currents may be imperceptible or produce a light tingling sensation. A shock caused by low current that would normally be harmless could startle an individual and cause injury due to suddenly jerking away from the source of electricity, resulting in one ...

Although we all have slightly different stories as to how these symptoms just showed up one day, my acupuncturist now had a really good analogy that made a lot of sense to me. He said our bodies are constantly adapting to the stress, toxins, and abuse we subject them to day in and day out. The often adapt to allow us to keep on feeling good, but not all adaptations are for our overall health benefit. He compared the bodys tollerance threshold for stress, toxins, and abuse as an empty glass. As we subject it to more and more and it goes on adapting and putting up with everything the glass begins to fill up. One day we reach the point where the water begins to overflow because the tollerance threshold has been reached. We can no longer adapt to feel fine any longer and something has to give. Physical symptoms begin to manifest. We are suddenly aware there is a problem, but the truth is it has been in the works for years. When he works on me, he is working to address the many adaptations that were ...

Electrical injuries most often occur in industrial accidents and, occasionally, with children who curiously play with electrical outlets or cords (chew on electrical cord). About 93% of electrical injury victims are males. The groups highest at risk are electrical and construction workers most commonly injured by generated electricity. Golfers who stay outdoors in summer during lightning storms, comprise a significantly large group susceptible to lightning strikes.There are two types of electric currents: DIRECT (DC) and ALTERNATING (AC). Injuries which result from direct current occur mainly in industrial environments. The majority of homes are supplied with alternating current. The flow of electricity is from the point of contact to the ground. The injury is dependent on the distance and the resistance of the tissue involved. Alternating current is usually much more disruptive to tissue. Direct current produces a smaller entrance wound with a much larger exit.. The greatest threat to life from ...

Comparison of the Results of Early Flap Coverage with Late Flap Coverage in High-Voltage Electrical Injury. - Semantic Scholar
Patients with high-voltage electrical injuries had very high rates of infection, morbidity, and limb amputation. The results of early and late flap coverage in these patients were prospectively compared. The patients were divided into two groups, early flap group (≤3 weeks) and late flap group (|3 weeks), according to the length of time from injury to wound coverage with flap. Age, sex, demographic data, time taken for flap coverage, time taken for pedicle division, time taken to discharge, wound infection, range of motion in joints, amputation, mortality, and outcome were gathered in a special questionnaire. This study included 55 patients, 31 within the early flap group and 24 within the late flap group. Of the 55 patients, 94.6% were male; mean (SD) of age was 29.04 (10.11) and of TBSA was 13.8 (10.07). Length of stay was significantly longer in the late flap group. The rates of infection and amputation were lower in the early flap group. There was no correlation between the type and the number of

Pressure ulcer (PU) can initiate in deep muscle closer to bony prominences. The recently emphasized deep tissue injury (DTI) mechanism has received increased attention and several studies reported newly developed DTI animal models. However, concerns exist for the clinical relevance and validity of these models. We propose a rat PU/DTI model which is more clinically relevant by implementing an implant on the bone-tissue interface to simulate the bony prominence as well as including chronic SCI condition. Histological analyses confirmed that the condition of chronic SCI had significant effect on pressure-induced tissue injury in this rat PU model and the including of a simulated bony prominence resulted in significantly greater injury in deep muscle tissue. Further integration of the SCI and the simulated bony prominence would result a rat PU/DTI model which can simulate even more accurately the clinical phenomenon and yield more clinically relevant findings.. ...

Rhabdomyolysis. Hopefully youre somewhat familiar with this medical condition. Dr. Michael Ray of CrossFit Flagstaff, AZ states Rhabdomyolysis is a medical condition that may arise when muscle tissue breaks down and muscle cells are released into the bloodstream. The destruction of these cells cause a release of breakdown products, one of which is myoglobin - a protein molecule that is harmful to the kidneys and can cause acute renal failure and even death.. There are two key points that wed like for you to understand: what causes rhabdo and what the symptoms of rhabdo are. First, if you understand the causes of this condition, you can avoid having it. Rhabdo is physically caused by crushing injuries, obstruction of blood supply to muscles, electrical injuries, and yes… exercise. Typically, cases of rhabdo that are related to exercise are attributed to infrequent exposure to high intensity output coupled with poor hydration. In other words, an athlete coming from a globo-gym with a ...
Muscles of the Upper Extremities. Muscles of Shoulder and Arm. Muscles That Move the Forearm and Hand. Muscles of the Trunk. Muscles of Respiration. Muscles of the Abdomen and Pelvis. Deep Muscles of the Back
This activates a deep muscle that wraps right around the abdomen rather like a corset. The muscle is called the transversus abdominis. It helps the back muscles protect your spine against injury and pain.. Let your tummy muscles soften and relax and them gently draw your lower tummy (belly button and below) in towards your spine - keep breathing normally. Do this often during the day and gradually increase the length of hold, up to 5 - 10 seconds. Rest and then repeat this exercise 5 - 10 times. You can practice this exercise when lying down on your side, on hands and knees, sitting or standing.. If you cant feel much try this: as you breathe in expand your ribs as much as possible. Hold that expansion while you breathe out and draw in your belly button towards your spine. It may help if you imagine you are trying to do up a pair of tight jeans.. Every time you lift your baby, push/pull or change your position (eg rolling over in bed or going from sitting to standing), remember to first tighten ...
Usually, patients with fracture of the cervical vertebrae suffered a direct trauma or an accident and the healing process has already started, therefore, depending on the type of fracture and precise diagnostic investigations they have particular protective guardians.. When the process of consolidation of the fracture is radiologically proven, it is crucial to start a specific rehabilitation program.. The first goal is the recovery of mobility through cautious passive manual traction performed strictly in line, and stretching into the active form of the paravertebral cervical dorsal and trapezius. To complete this step is also necessary postural correction of the cervical-thoracic spine in seated position and standing in front of the mirror.. Then you can move on to the second phase, the recovery of the strength of the deep muscles of the cervical spine through progressive isometric exercises at first with low intensity to prevent excessive sliding of the vertebral endplates on each other and of ...

In February 2009 a team led by Dr Thomas Bochdanksy, head of the department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the regional hospital in Feldkirch, Austria, studied the effect of the kyBounder on 31 test subjects, compared with a conventional therapy mat.. He tested the instability caused by the mats based on the distance from subjects center of balance. The results showed that exercise on the kyBounder stimulates postural stability far more than on a conventional therapy mat. Dr Bochdansky believes that this intensive way of improving your balance boosts the functions of the deep muscles and, among other things, helps reduce pain, especially in the lumbar vertebrae.. How the kyBounder compares: huge demands placed on your balance system. The data show that greater control is needed to stand still on the kyBounder (= harder work). This is due to the high degree of instability which characterizes the kyBounder, and can be seen on all frequency levels (see graph). According to Bochdansky ...
When you injure your back people will often tell you that you have to strengthen your abdominals. If this is not explained correctly one would take this statement that you need to strengthen your stomach muscles by performing sit-ups.. The statement is correct but doing sit up while you have back pain will actually increase your pain considerably. What we mean is that you need to increase your Transverse Abdominusstrength. This is a very deep muscle that directly supports your lumbar spine. People with lower back pain often have a very week TVA and therefore they have nothing to stabilising their spine when playing sports or when lifting for example.. This set of muscles are initially difficult to exercise, you will need some instruction from your Osteopath.. The benefit of exercising these muscles are:. ...

METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR FLUIDIC PELLETIZATION, TRANSPORT, AND PROCESSING OF MATERIALS - Patent application
0215] FIG. 28 illustrates air injection into the slurry line 1902. The pellet slurry exits the cutting shroud 400 into the slurry line 1902 through the sight glass 1906 past the angle elbow 1908 where the compressed air is injected from the air-injection inlet valve 1910 through the angled slurry line 1902 and past the enlarged elbow 1912 through and into dryer 1400. It is preferred that the air injection into the angled elbow 1908 is in line with the axis of the slurry line 1902 providing the maximum effect of that air injection on the pellet/water slurry resulting in constant aspiration of the mixture. The angle formed between the vertical axis of slurry line 1902 and the longitudinal axis of said slurry line 1902 can vary from approximately 0° to approximately 90° or more as obviated by the variance in the height of the pelletizer 900 relative to the height of the dryer inlet 1914 to the dryer 1400. This difference in height can be due to the physical positioning of the dryer inlet 1914 of ...

For bladder cancer, another key indicator for likelihood to spread is the depth of penetration into the bladder wall. The bladder wall is composed of an inner lining called the urothelium (made up of transitional cells) which rests on a membrane layer called the basement membrane, below which is the connective tissue layer (support tissues) called the lamina propria. Within the lamina propria lies a small amount of muscle called the muscularis mucosa. Deep to the lamina propria is the deep muscle of the bladder arranged in three layers. This layer is called the muscularis propria. Tumors located in the inside, superficial layers of the bladder wall are unlikely to spread. Tumors that grow into the deeper layers (down into the muscle of the bladder wall) are much more likely to spread. Furthermore, there is a definite link between the grade of the tumor and its likelihood of invasion. Low grade tumors are almost always noninvasive, while high grade tumors are usually invasive. In general, ...
So many doctors didnt know about (fibromyalgia). They kept sending me to psychiatrists who asked why I didnt like school.". Alice Norton can think of only one word to describe her daughter Phoebes descent into debilitating pain and fatigue. "Horrible," she says. "Phoebe had constant pain in her back, neck and head. She couldnt do anything. She was home all day and missed almost two years of school. Sometimes she would sleep all day and be up all night. We would go to the doctor two to three times a week, trying to get help. We tried everything we could possibly think of, but nothing made a difference.". A year after being told that Phoebe fit some of the criteria for fibromyalgia - a musculoskeletal disorder associated with deep muscle pain, fatigue and disturbed sleep - Alice found herself down at the Hospital for Sick Children "sobbing and begging for help.". Phoebes diagnosis was confirmed and the 13-year-old was referred to Bloorview MacMillan Childrens Centres inpatient pain service ...

Novel use of epidural catheter: Air injection for neuroprotection during radiofrequency ablation of spinal osteoid osteoma -...
Osteoid osteoma (OO) is a benign bone tumor, with a male-female ratio of approximately 2:1 and mainly affecting long bones. Ten percent of the lesions occur in the spine, mostly within the posterior elements. Treatment options for OO include surgical excision and percutaneous imaging-guided radiofrequency ablation (RFA). Lesions within the spine have an inherent risk of thermal damage to the vital structure because of proximity to the neural elements. We report a novel use of the epidural catheter for air injection for the neuroprotection of nerves close to the OO of the spine. A 12-year-old and 30 kg male child with an OO of the L3 vertebra was taken up for RFA. His preoperative examinations were within normal limits. The OO was very close to the L3 nerve root. Under general anesthesia, lumbar epidural catheter was placed in the L3-L4 space under imaging guidance. Ten ml of aliquots of air was injected under imaging guidance to avoid injury to the neural structures due to RFA. The air created a gap
A compact, hybrid particulate and gas collector that can be used in an ultra-clean air purification, vehicle emissions control system, gas turbine, or in any other application where space and lower cost is important or in applications where sub-micron and nano-particulate filtering is needed such as in clean rooms and surgical suites. A gas flow enters the device in a first chamber and can be immediately exposed to a high-tension corona discharge electric field which typically results in a strong ionic flow by charging and collecting the incoming effluent (oil mist, soot particles, etc.). Subsequently, the charged flow enters a second zone of high-tension uniform electric field that causes the remaining charged particles to migrate to one of the charged electrodes. One of the electrodes can be made of porous filter material that allows the cleaned gas to flow into an exit zone also containing a high-tension uniform electric field where the remaining effluent can be collected prior to the ultra-clean gas

Needle stimulation (acupuncture) has recently been shown to increase blood flow in the tibialis anterior muscle and overlying skin in healthy subjects (HS) and patients with fibromyalgia (FM). The aim of the present study was to examine the effect of needle stimulation on local blood flow in the trapezius muscle and overlying skin in HS and two groups of patients suffering from chronic pain in the trapezius muscle, i.e., FM and work-related trapezius myalgia (TM) patients. Two modes of needling, deep muscle stimulation (Deep) and subcutaneous needle insertion (SC), were performed at the upper part of the shoulder and blood flow was monitored for 60 min post-stimulation. Blood flow changes were measured non-invasively by using a new application of photoplethysmography. Increased blood flow in the trapezius muscle and overlying skin was found in all three groups following both Deep and SC. In HS, Deep was superior to SC in increasing skin and muscle blood flow, whereas in FM, SC was as effective ...
When something touches our skin, its generally very easy for our brains to pinpoint the exact location of stimulation due to the dense forest of nerves that cover the outside of our bodies. On the contrary, the insides of our bodies have a much less developed sensory system which often makes it hard to describe and locate a potential source of discomfort. Nowhere is this more of a problem than the head, neck, and face. For example, ear pain can be referred from the back of the tongue, the tonsils, the back of the nose, and even deep muscles of the neck.. In this post, I want to touch on a very specific type of referred pain called Sluders neuralgia which are contact headaches caused by a severely deviated nasal septum. Ill begin by summarizing the clinical course of a recent patient. The patient had been suffering from more than 15 years of predominantly right sided headaches.

There is no specific treatment, cure, or vaccine for hantavirus infection. However, we do know that if infected individuals are recognized early and receive medical care in an intensive care unit, they may do better. In intensive care, patients are intubated and given oxygen therapy to help them through the period of severe respiratory distress.. The earlier the patient is brought in to intensive care, the better. If a patient is experiencing full distress, it is less likely the treatment will be effective..

Muscle spindles are skeletal muscle mechanoreceptors that mediate the stretch reflex and provide axial and limb position information to the central nervous system. They have been proposed to play a major role in the pathophysiology of muscle pain. Knowledge about the normal human muscle spindles is needed in order to understand their role in muscle disease or dysfunction.. The aim of this study was to investigate the fiber content and MyHC composition of the muscle spindles in the human biceps brachii (BB) and deep muscles of the neck (DN); to determine whether there are age-related changes in human muscle spindles with respect to structure and MyHC composition; to investigate the distribution of SERCA isoforms and to evaluate whether there is a coordinated expression of SERCA and MyHC isoforms in intrafusal fibers. The myosin heavy chain (MyHC) content correlates to contraction velocity and force and the sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ ATPase (SERCA) is a major determinant of muscle fiber ...

The present study was conducted to analyze the alterations affecting cyclins D1, E, and A in bilharzial bladder cancer and to assess their potential clinical significance. A total of 125 cases were examined. Histopathological subtypes included 68 squamous cell carcinomas, 55 transitional cell carcinomas, and 2 adenocarcinomas. Immunohistochemical analyses were performed using a panel of well-characterized antibodies. The results were correlated with proliferative index, as assessed by Ki67 antigen expression. The cyclin D1-positive phenotype, defined as the identification of positive immunoreactivity in the nuclei of ,/=20% of tumor cells, was found in 33 of 107 (31%) evaluable cases. A significant association was observed between the cyclin D1-positive phenotype and deep muscle invasion (P = 0.02), high tumor grade (P = 0.02), and Ki67 high proliferative index (P = 0.03). The cyclin E-positive phenotype, defined as per cyclin D1, was found in 79 of 106 (75%) evaluable cases. The cyclin ...
