    Cats (Felis domestica) were exposed acutely to electric fields in the frequency range from 0.1 to 50 Hz using contact electrodes. A marked reduction in respiration rate was observed. The maximum sensitivity was of the order of 1 V/m at frequencies of 0.5-2 Hz. Using multiple electrode sites, it was found that the primary locus of action was near the first vertebra. No effects on cardiac frequency ... View full abstract»

    A simple model structure of spatial and temporal temperature distribution in human tissue, exposed to electromagnetic heating and surface cooling, is developed. This model, denoted the control model, is useful for thermal dosimetry in hyperthermia cancer therapy. The theoretical control model parameter values for various types of homogeneous tissue are determined from a priori knowledge about tiss... View full abstract»

    The body impedance and threshold currents needed to produce sensations of perception and pain have been measured for 367 human subjects for the frequency range 10 kHz to 3 MHz. A sufficient number of subjects (197 male and 170 female subjects of ages between 18 and 70 years) were utilized in the study to make valid statistical predictions for the general adult population. Various types of contact ... View full abstract»

    124 subjects were tested in a procedure designed to measure sensitivity to transient currents applied cutaneously, and to assess individual characteristics accounting for sensitivity differences. College students (one male and one female group), female office workers, and male maintenance workers (electricians, carpenters, plumbers, and sheet metal workers) were tested.

    We present a real-time abdominal recording method for the FECG based on a minimization procedure for the MECG interference, by weighted addition of four abdominal leads containing FECG with a large amount of MECG. The minimization of the MECG does not influence the FECG recording adversely. FECG complexes coinciding with MECG complexes are also recorded. Use is made of programmable amplifiers that...

    This paper describes measurements of somatically evoked magnetic fields in the vicinity of the neck using a SQUID with a second-derivative gradiometer. The evoked fields were observed not only at the head, but also at the back of the shoulder and at the back of the neck when the peripheral nerve of the wrist was stimulated. The field at the neck appeared within about 150 ms after the stimulus with... View full abstract»

    A circuit is described for automatic on-line real-time elimination of electrode-pop artifact from EEG recordings, which can occur occasionally from a sudden change in the dc contact potential at an electrode. The circuit, which functions irrespective of polarity and amplitude (over a wide range) of the artifact, is intended primarily for eliminating this artifact from EEG's for computer analysis, ...

    The bulk electrical properties of an implanted VX-2 carcinoma in rabbit liver tissue were measured from 1 kHz to 13 MHz, together with those of normal rabbit liver tissue. At the lower end of the frequency range, the conductivity of the tumor tissue was 6-7.5 times higher and its permittivity was 2-5 times lower than that of the normal tissue. The increased conductivity of the tumor tissue is beli... View full abstract»

  • Evaluation of Four Methods for Estimating Breath-by-Breath Exchange of O2 and CO2

    Four methods which have been used to estimate breath-by-breath gas exchange during spontaneous breathing were compared in vivo and in vitro. The first method estimates net gas exchange by taking the difference between the inspired volume and expired volume of the gas. The second and third methods correct the first estimate by accounting for the intracycle difference between the total inspired volu... View full abstract»

    A coaxial cell suitable for exposure of biological substances to electromagnetic fields in the frequency range from dc to 100 MHz is described. The cell provides uniform electric field throughout the exposed sample, requires a relatively small volume of the sample (typically below 1 ml), and allows for convenient control of the sample temperature.

    The pressure-flow (P-F) relationship in intravenous catheters is shown to be represented by the predictive model P = RLF + RTF2. The pressure loss due to F, calculated from experimental data, was found to equal the expected Poiseuille laminar flow loss. Pressure loss due to F2 was found to be the sum of turbulent P losses due to entrance length flow disturbance, kinetic energy at the outflow, and ... View full abstract»

    Two efficient algorithms are described for the estimation of dynamic parameters in a tracer kinetic experiment, when a stochastic multicompartmental model is utilized. The first approach is based on the sensitivity method, where the error between the model output and the system output is minimized. Sensitivity functions are calculated and model outputs are simulated by the algorithm at each iterat... View full abstract»

    The influence of sheathing materials upon temperature probes used during the monitoring of ultrasonic heating was measured. The measurements show that the sheathing can be heated in a manner not representative of the temperature rise occurring in the surrounding material, altering the probe readings. View full abstract»
