BACKGROUND: The noble gas helium induces cardio- and neuroprotection by pre- and post-conditioning. We investigated the effects of helium pre- and post-conditioning on the brain and heart in a rat resuscitation model. METHODS: After approval by the Animal Care Committee, 96 Wistar rats underwent cardiac arrest for 6 min induced by ventricular fibrillation. Animals received 70% helium and 30% oxygen for 5 min before cardiac arrest and for 30 min after restoration of spontaneous circulation (ROSC)...

BACKGROUND: Proprioception and body balance after knee arthroplasty have a considerable impact on restoration of joint function and a normal gait pattern. Kinesiology Taping (KT) is a method that may be able to influence these factors. The aim of this study was to assess the effects of KT application on sensorimotor efficiency, balance and gait in patients undergoing rehabili-ta--tion after knee replacement surgery. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study involved 120 male and female patients (mean age was 69 years) after total knee repla-cement...

BACKGROUND: Bell's palsy is an idiopathic, acute peripheral palsy of the facial nerve that supplies the muscles of facial expression. Despite an expected 70% full recovery rate, up to 30% of patients are left with potentially disfiguring facial weakness, involuntary movements, or persistent lacrimation. The most frequently used treatment options are corticosteroids and antiviral drugs. However, accompanying clinical conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes, hypertension, gastrointestinal disturbances, polypharmacy of geriatric patients, and significant sequelae ratios, indicate the need for safe and effective complementary therapies that would enhance the success of the conventional interventions...

Here, we demonstrate bilateral pulmonary vein isolation using a bipolar clamp but without atriotomy during minimally invasive aortic valve replacement. The operation was performed through a right anterolateral minithoracotomy. The right pulmonary veins were ablated by using a radiofrequency clamp on the beating heart. After cardiac arrest, the ascending aorta was pulled up using umbilical tape passed through the transverse sinus. Appendage resection offered fine exposure around the lower pulmonary vein. The bipolar clamp was introduced into the oblique sinus under the aorta, and the left pulmonary veins were ablated...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: While growing evidence supports the therapeutic effect of 453 nm blue light in chronic inflammatory skin diseases, data on its effects on acutely-perturbed human skin are scarce. In this study we investigated the impact of 453 nm narrow-band LED light on healthy skin following acute perturbation. METHODS: Tape stripping and histamine iontophoresis were performed on the forearm of 22 healthy volunteers on two consecutive weeks. In one week, challenges were followed by irradiation for 30 minutes...

Virulent lactococcal phages are still a major risk for milk fermentation processes as they may lead to slowdowns and low quality fermented dairy products, particularly cheeses. Some of the phage control strategies used by the industry rely on heat treatments. Recently, a few Lactococcus lactis phages were found to be highly thermo-resistant. To identify the genetic determinant(s) responsible for the thermal resistance of lactococcal phages, we used the virulent phage CB14 (sk1virus/936 group) to select for phage mutants with increased heat stability...

Jeffrey Swanson, William G Weissert
Case management programs often designate a nurse or social worker to take responsibility for guiding care when patients are expected to be expensive or risk a major decline. We hypothesized that though an intuitively appealing idea, careful program design and faithful implementation are essential if case management programs are to succeed. We employed two theory perspectives, principal-agent framework and street-level bureaucratic theory to describe the relationship between program designers (principals) and case managers (agents/street-level bureaucrats) to review 65 case management studies...

The World Health Organization's Global Program to Eliminate Lymphatic Filariasis (LF) has reduced LF transmission worldwide, but millions remain affected by filarial lymphedema. Tools for clinically monitoring lymphedema in developing nations are limited. We tested a novel, portable, infrared three-dimensional (3D) scanner against water displacement (WD) and tape measurement of limb circumference (TMLC) among patients with filarial leg lymphedema in Galle, Sri Lanka. Outcomes were accuracy and reproducibility of scanner measurements...

The authors applied scanning electron microscopy with energy-dispersive x-ray spectrometry to the furrow derived from hanging means. The study was conducted with the purpose to detect possible extraneous microtraces, deriving from the ligature, that could have had an interaction with the cutaneous biological matrix, thanks to a transfert mechanism, in the proximities of the lesion.Fifteen cutaneous samples of the furrow and an equal number of fragments of graphite tape, directly positioned on the lesion produced by the ligature mean and used as a "conductor" of possible traces, were analyzed using scanning electron microscopy with energy-dispersive x-ray spectrometry...

In this Letter, we present a high-resolution photoacoustic endomicroscopy probe based on a microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) scanning mirror. The built-in optical assembly consists of a 0.7 mm graded-index (GRIN) lens for light focusing and a ϕ1  mm MEMS mirror to reflect and scan the beam. A miniaturized unfocused ultrasound transducer with a center frequency of 10 MHz is used for photoacoustic detection. Sharp blades, carbon fibers, and black tapes were utilized to evaluate the performance of the system...

A simple paper-based sensor with electrochemical detection was first developed for rapid, selective, and sensitive determination of acetylcholinesterase (AChE). The screen-printed graphene electrode was used as working electrode providing sensitivity for the sensor. The amperometric detection of AChE is based on the determination of thiocholine (TCh) produced from hydrolysis of acetylthiocholine chloride (ATCh) by AChE. To detect TCh, the ATCh immobilized sheet was stacked onto the detection sheet using double adhesive tape, then samples of AChE were dropped on the back side of an ATCh immobilized sheet with only 1min of incubation time...
