In order to overcome the limitations of the conventional methods and improve the performance of urban air pollution prediction in Tehran, a spatio-temporal system is designed using a ... solutions can significantly reduce the respiratory and cardiovascular diseases caused by the air pollution. The proposed online system was able to continuously work with the streaming data of Tehran on a

Low inter-examiner agreement of the Friedman staging system indicating limited value in patient selection

Sundman 4 Institute of Surgical Science, Uppsala University , 751 85 Uppsala , Sweden Purpose The Friedman staging system is a clinical method for selecting patients with obstructive sleep apnoea who are ... likely to benefit from uvulopalatopharyngoplasty. The objective of this study was to evaluate the system by determining its inter-examiner agreement. Methods Twelve patients with obstructive sleep apnoea

Central nervous system localisation of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, description of two very distinct cases and a review of the literature

Central nervous system (CNS) localisation of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) can induce various neurological symptoms. Unfamiliarity with this manifestation causes diagnostic delay. We present ... symptoms, lymphadenopathy, infections, or B-symptoms. The presence of lymphocyte infiltration in extramedullary localisations, such of as the central nervous system (CNS), causing neurological symptoms is

First symptoms in multiple system atrophy

Purpose The initial symptoms of multiple system atrophy (MSA) and, in particular, early autonomic symptoms, have received less attention than motor symptoms. Whereas pathognomonic motor signs are ... pressure CASS Composite Autonomic Severity Score DLB Dementia with Lewy bodies GCI Glial cytoplasmic inclusions HR Heart rate MSA Multiple system atrophy MSA-C Multiple system atrophy, cerebellar subtype MSA

Positive end-expiratory pressure selection based on best respiratory system compliance or collapse/hyperdistension curves in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome: lack of correlation with alveolar recruitment

higher PEEP [ 2 ]. We hypothesized that measurement of Vrec may help in our decision of PEEP and thus conducted a study comparing the Vrec with PEEPEIT or PEEP selection based on best respiratory system ... . [ 5 ] was used to determine the degree of CH during decremental PEEP titration. The intersection between CH curves and PEEPEIT were determined (Fig. 1b). Respiratory system compliance (Crs) was

BA9 lineage of respiratory syncytial virus from across the globe and its evolutionary dynamics

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is an important pathogen of global significance. The BA9 is one of the most predominant lineages of the BA genotype of group B RSV that has acquired a 60bp ... collection and analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the manuscript Introduction Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is the most frequent respiratory pathogen of severe respiratory tract infection

Microvolt T-wave alternans and autonomic nervous system parameters can be helpful in the identification of low-arrhythmic risk patients with ischemic left ventricular systolic dysfunction

Here I will review the current state of the field, what we have learned from using C. elegans to study gut microbiome and host interactions, and the potential of using this model system in ... available to the invading microbes or competing for attachment sites on the surface of intestinal epithelial cells, or by directly modulating immune system maturation. Conversely, the microbiome has been

Osteopontin plays a pivotal role in increasing severity of respiratory syncytial virus infection

The molecular mechanisms underlying susceptibility to severe respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection remain poorly understood. Herein, we report on the role of osteopontin (OPN) in regulation of ... supported in part by the Department of Veterans Affairs, Introduction Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is one of the most common causes of lower respiratory tract infections with a global disease burden
