    The extremely low frequency (ELF) electric field coupling to dielectric spheroidal models of biological objects is studied. Simple expressions are obtained to determine the internal electric field strength induced inside two nonspherical spheroids; a prolate dielectric spheroid and an oblate dielectric spheroid. Certain numerical results are graphically presented for various geometric shapes of th... View full abstract»

    The problem of locating the position of the source of evoked potentials from measurements on the surface of the scalp has been examined. It is shown that the position of the source in a head modeled by a sphere surrounded by two concentric shells of differing conductivities representing the skull and the scalp can be inferred from source localization calculations made on a homogeneous model.

    Male and female mice were continuously exposed to an extremely intense electrostatic field for approximately 5000 h before they were sacrificed for tests. The progenies resulting from breeding the various couples were also subjected to the same field. Data concerning various biological parameters such as water consumption, body weight, rate of growth, number of progenies, blood count and chemistry... View full abstract»

    The piezoelectric sorption detection method is evaluated for use in construction of an inexpensive, rugged, compact, and fast sensor for measuring the concentration of inhalation anesthetics. 10 MHz quartz crystals were coated with various substances and their frequency shifts measured upon exposure to varying concentrations of halothane, enflurane, and nitrous oxide. For a silicone rubber coating... View full abstract»

    We have developed and tested a portable device that measures energy expenditure per unit time of a human subject. A modified ceramic phonocartridge senses the acceleration of the body. After amplification and rectification a Curtis 120 CP3 elapsed time meter integrates the output. This may prove to be useful in providing an objective measurement of the level of physical activity of human subjects ... View full abstract»

    The modulation of respiratory flow by cardiac function has been the subject of scientific investigation for over 100 years. The waveform of these modulations is called a pneumocardiogram (PNCG). All reported pneumocardiograms have been obtained during a state of apnea with a patent glottis maintained by voluntary control or intratracheal intubation. In this study, simple filters and coherent signa... View full abstract»

    Fluid replacement therapy, essential in the treatment of burn patients, continues to be a difficult clinical responsibility. Inherent variability of individual patient response to conventional burn fluid formulas and the practical limitations involved in manually adjusting fluid infusion rates on a continuous basis combine to hamper proper fluid administration. A microcomputer-based fluid infusion... View full abstract»
