Bedside lung ultrasound in emergency protocol as a diagnostic tool in patients of acute respiratory distress presenting to emergency department

Conclusion: BLUE protocol was successful in average 90.316% cases. BLUE performed in emergency department is equivalent to computed tomography scan. BLUE protocol aids in making diagnosis and saves time and cost; avoids the side effects related to radiation.

Publication date: Available online 14 September 2019Source: Thermochimica ActaAuthor(s): Akihiko TodaAbstractThe recrystallization behavior of poly(ethylene terephthalate), PET, in the melting region was examined by Fast-Scan and Temperature-Modulated Calorimetry. In addition to the prior results of Fast-Scan Calorimetry, FSC, evidence that recrystallization caused double PET melting peaks was obtained. An exothermic recrystallization peak was directly observed in the second heating run of FSC after the lower-temperature melting peak was eliminated through rapid heating and cooling. FSC was then performed with a temperatur...

The microstructure, corrosion behavior, and mechanical properties were analyzed. Electrochemical and immersion techniques were applied for corrosion behavior analysis. Moreover, scanning Kelvin probe force microscopy (SKPFM) was utilized to measure the surface Volta-potential. It was found that an increase in SR temperature decreased the strength by increasing the grain size and reduc...

In this paper, the growth of high-quality AlGaN epi-layer in AlGaN/GaN HEMT is reported. The optimization was carried out to improve surface morphology and quality of the AlGaN epi-layer to get high 2DEG (two-dimensional electron gas) properties of the HEMT structure...

To further improve its properties, a possible way is to form solid solutions by partially substituting one of constituting elements in MoAlB. This work reports on the synthesis of MoAl1-xSixB solid solutions by powder metallurgy. Influences of sintering temperature, dwelling time, and composition of starting mixture on the solubility limit of Si in MoAlB have been investiga...
