Electrosurgical vessel joining is commonly performed in surgical procedures to maintain hemostasis. This process requires elevated temperature to denature the tissue and while compression is applied, the tissue can be joined together. The elevated temperature can cause thermal damages to the surrounding tissues. In order to minimize these damages, it is critical to understand how the tissue properties change and how that affects the thermal spread. The purpose of this study is to investigate the changes of tissue thermal conductivity and how the changes correlate to thermal dose during the joining process. We propose a hyb...

I am in my last year of pharmacy school, and going through rotations really opened my eyes to how much I hate clinical pharmacy. As the time draws closer and closer to residency applications, I dread thinking about having to do clinical pharmacy work for the next year of my life before moving on to the unknown. I got pretty down on my last rotation, waking up every single morning way too early and being forced to do things that I hate so much. I am now burned out, and I have never hated... I hate clinical pharmacy. Am I the only one?

This study provides the largest and most comprehensive survey to-date of users of consumer tDCS devices. Obtaining a deeper knowledge of what drives home users—to purchase and use a consumer tDCS device (or for many, to cease to use it)—has important implications, both for ongoing debates about the ethical implications of the home use of tDCS, as well as for discussions of the regulation of direct-to-consumer neurotechnology. Thus, the present study not only provides an empirical foundation on which to base policy recommendations, but also offers a concrete, empirical perspective on a debate that has too-often ...

Medscape: Medscape Access //Burnout was reported at the highest rates by critical care physicians (48%), neurologists (48%), and family medicine doctors (47%). In a large number of specialties, 40% or more of the respondents said they felt burned out. Among oncologists, 39% reported burnout. Lower numbers — but still somewhat large — of...

In this study, the odors of two types of hardwood species, namely, Cathy poplar (Populus cathayana Rehd.) and rubberwood (Hevea brasiliensis) were selected and extracted with ethanol-toluene for removal of extractives in an attempt to eliminate the odors. The odorous components of neat and extracted woods were identified by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry/olfactometry (GC-MS/O). The results showed that about 33 kinds of key volatile compounds (peak area above 0.2%) were detected from the GC-MS, and about 40 kinds of odorants were identified from GC-O. The components were concentrated between 15 and 33 min in GC-O, whi...

In this study, we used bands 7, 4, and 3 of the Advance Himawari Imager (AHI) data, combined with a Threshold Algorithm and a visual interpretation method to monitor the entire process of grassland fires that occurred on the China-Mongolia border regions, between 05:40 (UTC) on April 19th to 13:50 (UTC) on April 21st 2016. The results of the AHI data monitoring are evaluated by the fire point product data, the wind field data, and the environmental information data of the area in which the fire took place. The monitoring result shows that, the grassland fire burned for two days and eight hours with a total burned area of a...
