• fluid mechanics
  • Research at SAFL is primarily concentrated in four major areas: Earth surface, water, and life Mitigating impacts of global environmental change Renewable energy systems Biomedical fluid mechanics for personalized health care SAFL became involved with NCED in 2002, an NSF Science and Technology center that focuses on developing an integrated, quantitative approach to predicting the evolution of Earth's surface.

  • Biological fluid mechanics, or biofluid mechanics, is the study of both gas and liquid fluid flows in or around biological organisms. (wikipedia.org)
  • lungs
  • And around the heart and pericardium lies the respiratory pump - the lungs within the thorax - itself varying by pressure, volume and frequency. (pulmccm.org)
  • patients
  • The aim of this study is to assess the effects on respiratory mechanics of one 'classical' short-term bronchodilator (i.e., salbutamol) versus placebo, and to verify the hypothesis that the addition of another bronchodilator (i.e., anticholinergic) may induce a further improvement on the work of breathing of stable COPD patients. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Although several studies investigated the effects of general anaesthesia on respiratory function, they were specifically performed in healthy young people, and did not include patients with different ages or anthropometric characteristics. (springer.com)
  • Such ASA I or II patients do NOT require further respiratory evaluation prior to lung resection. (anaesthetist.com)
  • If advanced knowledge of the patients condition is known before takeoff, the crew may also include a respiratory therapist, medical doctor or other specialized medical personnel. (wikipedia.org)
  • Stough also worked at the Veteran's Administration Medical Center in West Haven, Connecticut, which was the largest hospital for patients with respiratory diseases on the East Coast at the time. (wikipedia.org)
  • methods
  • Pilots and mechanics are employees of Air Methods Corp.. When the transport is beyond the range of the helicopter, or when weather precludes flight to a location, a fixed-wing aircraft is called into service. (wikipedia.org)
  • laparoscopy
  • Moreover, general anaesthesia may be performed in different positions or surgical conditions (i.e. during laparoscopy), which may further influence the respiratory function compared to the supine position. (springer.com)
  • To compare the effect of laparoscopy and laparotomy surgeries on thoracoabdominal mechanics. (ersjournals.com)
  • cardiac
  • Accordingly, linking the physiologies of the cardiac and thoracic pumps will facilitate acquisition and interpretation of hemodynamic data as well as provide rationale for optimizing respiratory mechanics. (pulmccm.org)
  • A ppoDLCO less than 40% predicted for that patient correlates with increased respiratory and cardiac complications, and is independent of FEV 1 . (anaesthetist.com)
  • different
  • Perfluorochemical (perfluorocarbon) molecules have very different structures that impart different physical properties such as respiratory gas solubility, density, viscosity, vapor pressure, and lipid solubility. (wikipedia.org)
