I was shocked to learn, from a comment made by a reader of my blog, that Wikipedia does not mention the gas chamber at Dachau. I couldnt believe it. I had to check it out for myself, and sure enough, there is no mention of any gas chambers, of any kind at Dachau, on the…
Soil respiration is the largest C-flux component in the terrestrial carbon (C) cycle, yet in many biomes this flux and its environmental responses are still poorly understood. Several methodological techniques exist to measure this flux, but mostly there remain comparability uncertainties. For example, the closed static chamber (CSC) and the closed dynamic chamber (CDC) systems are widely used, but still require a rigorous comparison. A major issue with the CSC approach is the generally long manual gas sampling periods causing a potential underestimation of the calculated fluxes due to an asymptotic increase in headspace CO2 concentrations. However, shortening the sampling periods of the static chamber approach might provide comparable results to the closed dynamic chamber system. We compared these two different chamber systems using replicated CSC cover boxes and a Li-Cor 8100 CDC system under field conditions, and performed tests on both, mineral and peat soil. Whereas the automated CDC system ...

Beginning on GD 5, groups of 56 time-mated F0 female rats were housed in specially designed reverberation chambers and received whole-body exposures to CDMA-modulated cell phone RFR at power levels of 0 (sham control), 1.5, 3, or 6 W/kg for 7 days per week, continuing throughout gestation and lactation. Exposure was up to 18 hours and 20 minutes per day with continuous cycling of 10 minutes on and 10 minutes off during the exposure periods. There were seven exposure groups per sex, including a shared sham control and three exposure groups for each modulation. At weaning, three males and three females per litter from 35 litters were randomly selected per exposure group for continuation. Weaning occurred on the day the last litter reached PND 21, marking the beginning of the 2-year studies. Groups of 105 male and 105 female F1 offspring continued to receive whole-body exposures to CDMA-modulated cell phone RFR at the same power levels and under the same exposure paradigm, 7 days per week for up to ...

The present disclosure is directed to a novel apparatus and novel methods for the separation, characterization, and manipulation of matter. In particular, the invention combines the use of frequency-dependent dielectric and conductive properties of particulate matter and solubilized matter with the properties of the suspending and transporting medium to discriminate and separate such matter. The apparatus includes a chamber having at least one electrode element and at least one inlet and one output port into which cells are introduced and removed from the chamber. Matter carried through the chamber in a fluid stream is then displaced within the fluid by a dielectrophoretic (DEP) force caused by the energized electrode. Following displacement within the fluid, matter travels through the chamber at velocities according to the velocity profile of the chamber. After the matter has transmitted through the chamber, it exits at the opposite end of the chamber at a characteristic position. Methods according to

HCAECs (Lonza) were cultured in endothelial growth medium (EGM-2 MV) containing endothelial growth factors, 5% FBS, 100 U/mL of penicillin, and 100 μg/mL of streptomycin at 37°C in humidified air (5% CO2). Cells passaged 3 to 5 times and at 80% to 90% confluence were used for this study. For hypoxia studies, confluent HCAECs were exposed to hypoxia (0.1% O2) by incubation in a ProOxC hypoxia chamber system (BioSpherix) at 37°C that subjected the cells to a controlled anoxic gas mixture consisting of N2 and 5% CO2. For reoxygenation and normoxic controls, cells were returned to/incubated in the standard CO2 incubator under normoxic conditions (21% O2, 5% CO2, and 74% N2).. We first examined the effect of hypoxia on Egfl7 expression in HCAECs. Cells were subjected to 0, 3, or 6 hours of hypoxia, and Egfl7 expression was detected by Western immunoblot analysis. We then examined the effect of recombinant human Egfl7 (0.1 to 100.0 ng/mL for 6 or 48 hours, Abnova) on HCAEC total cellular ICAM-1 ...
The Self-Contained Ussing Chambers systems come in single- and dual-channel models and offer many advantages over the Classic design. The single-channel U9926 and dual-channel U2500 are shown above and to the right. Both systems make use of inserts to secure and position the tissue or culture cup within the chamber body.. Chamber bodies (single- and dual-chamber models) consist of chamber-halves which clamp around the insert(s). Each chamber-half has four ports that enter into its respective bath compartment: a voltage electrode port, a current electrode port, an air/gas port, and a solution drain port. Solution warming is provided by pumping heated water through each chamber-half and there are no delicate glass heat exchangers to be broken. The dual-chamber U2500 has the additional feature of including four needle valves for adjusting the air/gas mixture into each individual chamber-half.. ...

Each of the reaction wells is in isolatable fluid communication with the pressure chamber such that during a first pressurizing stage of operation, each of the reaction wells can be simultaneously pressurized through common fluid communication with the pressure chamber, and such that during a second reaction stage of operation, each of the reaction wells can be fluidically isolated from at least one other of said plurality of reaction wells.
A continuous flow fluid bed dryer has a dryer housing having a drying chamber and a plenum chamber located beneath the drying chamber. Moist product to be dried is introduced to the drying chamber at a product inlet and proceeds through the drying chamber to a discharge housing. A porous screen partially separates the drying chamber and the plenum chamber. Heated air is introduced into the plenum chamber which then passes through the screen to the drying chamber to dry product in the drying chamber. A shaft extends centrally through the drying chamber and is mounted for slow rotation therein. A plurality of paddles are connected to the shaft. The paddles move about a path of rotation whereby paddle ends sequentially sweep over the surface of the screen. In doing so, the paddles momentarily move product away from the screen permitting a rush of heated into the drying chamber locally fluidizing the bed and further drying the product. The product is treated very gently in the process so as to suffer

STS-91 , 6/2/1998 , Crew: 6. SUMMARY:. Main engine pressure chamber sensor failed. If it occurred later, logic error may have triggered at RTLS.. EVENT DESCRIPTION:. After the launch of STS-91 on June 2, 1998, a channel A main engine pressure chamber sensor froze. The sensor was disqualified by engine control software when the sensor exceeded allowable limits during the max Q engine throttle down sequence however the sensor remained qualified for engine redline monitoring since the reading was still within reasonableness limits / operational range for the sensor. The channel B sensor and the main engine performed nominally throughout ascent. If an engine problem had occurred, the channel B sensor would have displayed the correct information and indicated the proper corrective action. However, the channel B sensor would have been ignored due to the frozen channel A sensor.. The post-flight inspection revealed that contamination from a seal leak check caused the sensor to freeze.

A mobile whole-body exposure system was developed for exposing mice to concentrated ambient particulate matter smaller than 2.5 microm in mass median aerodynamic diameter (MMAD). Each 20-L exposure cage was designed to hold 9 mice within individual compartments. This allowed for transport and subsequent exposure. Airflow mixing and the potential for stagnant areas within the compartments were modeled using computational fluid dynamic modeling (CFD). CFD analysis showed no stagnant areas and good mixing throughout the exposure cage. The actual performance of the exposure system was determined for 0.5 to 2.0 microm diameter aerosols by measuring (1) uniformity of aerosol distribution and (2) particle deposition in the tracheobronchial and pulmonary regions of mice exposed in the system. A 0.6-microm MMAD (GSD=2.0) cigarette smoke aerosol was used to experimentally measure the uniformity of aerosol distribution to the nine individual compartments. The average data from three runs showed no statistically

Man-made microwave and radiofrequency (RF) radiation technologies have been steadily increasing with the growing demand of electronic appliances such as microwave oven and cell phones. These appliances affect biological systems by increasing free radicals, thus leading to oxidative damage. The aim of this study was to explore the effect of 2.45 GHz microwave radiation on histology and the level of lipid peroxide (LPO) in Wistar rats. Sixty-day-old male Wistar rats with 180 ± 10 g body weight were used for this study. Animals were divided into two groups: sham exposed (control) and microwave exposed. These animals were exposed for 2 h a day for 35 d to 2.45 GHz microwave radiation (power density, 0.2 mW/cm2). The whole-body specific absorption rate (SAR) was estimated to be 0.14 W/kg. After completion of the exposure period, rats were sacrificed, and brain, liver, kidney, testis and spleen were stored/preserved for determination of LPO and histological parameters. Significantly high level of LPO ...

MILWAUKEE, April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Aurora St. Lukes Medical Centers new hyperbaric chamber will triple the hospitals capacity to treat patients with hyperbaric oxygen therapy and improve its regional wound care services. (Photo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20080417/AQTH107) The 52-foot-long, 66-ton chamber, the second-largest in the U.S. and the largest in Wisconsin, will be able to treat up to 24 patients at one time. The chamber was installed today after being lifted by a huge crane and placed into the basement of Aurora St. Lukes through a 1,100-square-foot hole. Hyperbaric chambers are primarily used to help treat difficult wounds, such as diabetic foot ulcers, but also are used for carbon monoxide poisoning and a host of other medical conditions. During hyperbaric treatment, patients breathe 100 percent oxygen in a pressurized chamber. The increased oxygen in the blood stimulates small blood vessel and skin growth and helps fight infection. "This new chamber will allow us to ...
General, the Hyperbaric Chamber has been found to improve many situations and diseases. Cerebral palsey is amongst these. Most of the signs have been lessened and even eradicated by strategic use of the Hyperbaric Chambers. Brain harm from head accidents and even strokes have been found to be reversed from the usage of the hyperbaric oxygen chambers. The oxygen thats saturated into the physique targets harmed and broken tissues. This aids those tissues, even within the brain, to change into productive and functioning once again ...
Between the 10th and 12th August, many of the the most influential names in the world of Hyperbaric Medicine gathered at the eighth IHMA HBOT 2012 conference in Long Beach, California.

A presentation by James Wright MD USAF (Rtd.) instigated the use of the SOS Hyperlite hyperbaric chambers for the transportation of casualties from the battlefront to the nearest available medical facility. The paper investigated the benefits of immediate hyperbaric oxygen treatment and provided evidence to suggest that the availability of on-scene hyperbaric chambers for immediate treatment or transfer-under-pressure capabilities would provide a capability to oxygenate wounds rapidly thus preventing hypoxia. The availability of a ...
Three crossover experiments (each randomized, balanced with regard to order, and separated by appropriate washout interval) will expose healthy subjects to well-characterized DEP in two-hour sessions in an inhalation chamber system mimicking ambient particulate matter from contemporary diesel engines.. First, 24 subjects will be exposed to DEP at each of three concentrations [0 (filtered air, FA), 100, or 200 µg/m3], and endothelial function will be assessed post-exposure through ultrasonographic measurement of endothelial-dependent flow-mediated vasodilation of the brachial artery, plasma markers of endothelial homeostasis (endothelin-1, ICAM-1, e-selectin, NO3-/NO2-, IL-6, and TNF-a), and markers of thrombosis associated with endothelial activation (PAI-1, D-dimer, and VWF).. Second, 10 subjects will be exposed to FA or DEP at 200 µg/m3 and then monitored intensively in the clinical research center for evidence of systemic oxidative stress using serial assessment of markers in plasma ...
The hydroxyl free radical (OH) is the major oxidizing species in the lower atmosphere. Measuring the OH concentration is generally difficult and involves elaborate, expensive, custom-made experimental setups. Thus other more economical techniques, capable of determining OH concentrations at environmental chambers, would be valuable. This work is based on an indirect method of OH concentration measurement, by monitoring an appropriate OH tracer by proton transfer reaction mass spectrometry (PTR-MS). 3-pentanol, 3-pentanone and pinonaldehyde (PA) were used as OH tracers in α-pinene (AP) secondary organic aerosol (SOA) aging studies. In addition we tested butanol-d9 as a potential "universal" OH tracer and determined its reaction rate constant with OH: k butanol-d9 = 3.4(±0.88) × 10 -12 cm 3 molecule -1 s -1. In order to make the chamber studies more comparable among each other as well as to atmospheric measurements we suggest the use of a chemical (time) dimension: the OH clock, which ...

Democratic lawmakers accused Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger of hiding from the public his plans to build a new execution chamber at San Quentin State Prison in a legislative hearing Tuesday in which the governors top prison official admitted the controversial project would cost twice as much as first estimated. While a Schwarzenegger spokesman and Corrections Secretary Jim Tilton said the administration wanted to quickly build a new execution chamber to meet a federal judges concerns, lawmakers suggested a deliberate attempt to keep the project secret. Fogel listed numerous problems with capitol punishment protocol, including concerns over the drug cocktail the state used, the training of staff, and the dimly lit and cramped space inside the lime-green death chamber at San Quentin.

The headline numbers from the Chambers study are derived from a fictional scenario that does not reflect any current proposals or realistic plans to achieve our climate goals.. By design, the Chamber study intentionally imposes the most stringent greenhouse gas regulations on the sectors that would face the highest costs per ton of GHG reduction.. This scenario greatly exaggerates the likely costs of any future program to achieve the economy-wide reductions set forth in the Paris Agreement, because any real program to meet those goals would be designed with cost-saving flexibility the Chamber deliberately left out.. The public-facing summary also neglects to mention that the report actually analyzed a wide range of scenarios, including one that allowed for a market-based, economy-wide approach. In that scenario, the report finds that the Paris goals can actually be achieved at much lower costs than the headline numbers suggest.. Although even that scenario still inflates costs (as well discuss ...
