    The ultrasonic threshold doses (acoustic intensity and time duration of a single pulse) to produce functional and structural irreversible effects in the mouse, rat, cat, monkey, and human central nervous systems are presented for a wide range of the pertinent parameters. There does not appear to be an important dependence upon frequency in the range from 1 to 6 MHz. Embryonic tissue is found to be... View full abstract»

    A mathematical analysis is made of the changes in body fluid volume and solute composition that occur during hemodialysis. The analysis considers the movement of water and solutes across the dialyzer membrane and between the intracellular and extracellular compartments. Dialyzer operating variables such as dialysate addition rate, solute dialysances, and ultrafiltration rate are included. The outp... View full abstract»

    In systems in which inductive coupling between a pancake-shaped coil on the surface of the body and a similar coil within the body is utilized for the transport of electromagnetic energy, the minimization of temperature rise in the tissue is intimately related to the achievement of minimum losses in the region of the implanted coil. A detailed theoretical analysis indicates the design consideratio... View full abstract»

    Techniques for reflex simulation as a treatment for the neurologically impaired bladder must restore volitional control of bladder function. This paper outlines the engineering commitments necessitated by biological considerations and the exclusive biological problems that must be dealt with in order to accomplish this. An electromechanical system that includes patient controllable mechanisms to p... View full abstract»

    A system is described for decoding frequency-modulated magnetic tape data directly into digital form suitable for input to a digital computer. Included in the system is a very precise method used to compensate for flutter errors. The bypassing of standard demodulation, filtering, and analog-to-digital conversion permits a significant improvement in signal-to-noise ratio. This type of system is mos... View full abstract»

    A simply constructed and inexpensive amplifier that exhibits unusually low noise is described. The amplifier is particularly useful in applications which call for large amplifications of very low- level signals. When variable gain and filtering stages are added, the amplifier provides flexibility, convenience, and performance comparable to the finest commercial units. View full abstract»
