Publication date: 5 November 2018Source: Colloids and Surfaces A: Physicochemical and Engineering Aspects, Volume 556Author(s): Chongqing Wang, Hui Wang, Yijun CaoAbstractConversion of solid wastes into biochar for removal of toxic heavy metals provides a cleaner method for waste management and benefits environmental protection. Ultrasound-assisted alkali activation of biochar prepared by pyrolysis of camphor leaves (Cinnamomum camphora) was used as sorbent (AABC) for Pb(II) sorption. The biochar was characterized by XPS, FTIR, XRD and SEM. Ultrasound-assisted alkali activation results in more surface groups, larger surfac...
CONCLUSIONS: IoUS is a real-time, accurate and inexpensive imaging method. The difficulties of interpretation can be overcome by experience in US imaging and a better understanding of the interaction between navigation and imaging fusion techniques. Training on a large number of cases is important for the correct assessment of ioUS information to obtain valuable, real-time information during HGG surgery.

CONCLUSION: Based on our series, we propose a definitive non-surgical management for all group 1 and 2 anal fissures according to our protocol. For groups 3 and 4, we recommend a primary non-surgical approach with follow-up. This was a retrospective study and further randomized controlled studies will be necessary to confirm our results.

ConclusionsPDT performed using a saline-filled cuff as the ultrasound-guided puncture target and an endotracheal tube exchanger is feasible, and appeared to be easier to perform than standard PDT. Larger studies are required to confirm the safety and benefits of this technique.

Publication date: 30 January 2019Source: Food Chemistry, Volume 272Author(s): Ping Yang, Ran Zhou, Wen Zhang, Rongxing Yi, Shisong Tang, Lianbo Guo, Zhongqi Hao, Xiangyou Li, Yongfeng Lu, Xiaoyan ZengAbstractStability and sensitivity of toxic elements determination is still unsatisfactory in agricultural product using laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS). A simple and low cost sample pretreatment method named solid–liquid-solid transformation method was proposed in this work. The target analytes of cadmium (Cd) and lead (Pb) from rice samples were prepared through ultrasound assisted extraction in hydrochloric...
CONCLUSION: This study shows that it is feasible to obtain high quality ONSD measurements in the management of prehospital TBI patients. A randomized study evaluating the usefulness of ONSD to guide management of TBI in the prehospital phase may be of great interest. PMID: 30118380 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Gaspary MJ, Zarow GJ, Barry MJ, Walchak AC, Conley SP, Roszko PJD Abstract BACKGROUND: Hemorrhage remains a leading cause of death in both civilian and military settings. Of preventable deaths from hemorrhage, a significant portion occurs from junctional wounds that are not amenable to traditional extremity tourniquets. Junctional tourniquets (JTQs) can potentially provide hemorrhage control by compressing the arteries at the junction of the trunk and extremities. The FDA has cleared 3 JTQ products: The Combat Ready Clamp (CRoC®), the Junctional Emergency Treatment Tool (JETT™), and the SAM® ...
