Carpal tunnel syndrome after an electrical injury: a case report and review of literature - Wong YS, Ong CT, Hsieh YY, Hung TW, Guo HR.

INTRODUCTION: Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is prevalent in workers who utilize hand-held vibration tools, engage in tasks involving repetitive wrist movements, and suffer from wrist overuse. Although electrical injuries involving the median nerve are a rel...

Publication date: Available online 15 June 2019Source: Biocatalysis and Agricultural BiotechnologyAuthor(s): Pham Anh Duc, P. Dharanipriya, Bharath Kumar Velmurugan, M. ShanmugavadivuAbstractGroundnut shells account for approximately 20% of the dried peanut pod by weight, meaning there is a significant amount of shell residual left after groundnut processing. Increased groundnut production leads to the accumulation of these groundnut shells which is not utilized, thus either burnt or buried. As Groundnut shells are rich in many functional compounds and composed of cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin, it can be utilized in ...

Publication date: Available online 15 June 2019Source: Chemical Engineering Research and DesignAuthor(s): Mingchen Qin, Yong Dong, Lin Cui, Junwen Yao, Chunyuan MaAbstractThe efficiency of wet flue gas desulfurization (WFGD) used in thermal power plants that burn high-sulfur coal can be improved by adopting dual-loop spray tower (DLST). In this paper, the process of gas–liquid flow, mass transfer and chemical reaction in the DLST were fully investigated through a pilot-scale DLST and the corresponding numerical model. The numerical model was verified based on the experiment and applied to predict a DLST of 200&thinsp...

I forgot to index last week's entry, it was Exodus 9. Here's Exodus 10, which makes very clear what is really going on here.Then theLord said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart and the hearts of his officials so that I may perform these signs of mine among them2 that you may tell your children and grandchildren how I dealt harshly with the Egyptians and how I performed my signs among them, and that you may know that I am theLord. ”Let's review, because this is important. Earlier we learned that God would harden Pharaoh's heart. Pharaoh was inclined  to let the Hebrews go early on ...

Abstract The discrepancy between concentrations and activities is a predicament well known to the analytical chemist. Because of the difficulty of determining activity coefficients, the standard technique for quantitative equilibrium studies is to work under a particular 'constant ionic strength' by adding an excess of an inert salt. Under such conditions, activity coefficients are approximately constant and can be taken into the equilibrium constants which are defined for the chosen ionic strength (I). Here we propose a fundamentally different approach. Throughout the numerical analysis of the titration data, act...

“Do you know what I’ve got here: a gun” – tales from the libraries front line. Photo: Marcus Rose   “I grew up a bookworm in Puerto Rico, where there are no public libraries,” Gabriella Houlgraves from Maidstone told UNISON local government delegates in Liverpool this morning. She asked them to imagine her joy when she came to the UK and discovered “a building full of more books than I could read in a lifetime” – which became even greater when she started working in the library service. But austerity cuts now mean that “we are now put at risk with lone workin...

This study found a "statistically significant difference during initial hours after fracture reduction and fixation so that pain intensity was less in elderly patients under hematoma block than patients who underwent general anesthesia in one and six hours after surgery." Most importantly, patients in the hematoma block group required less narcotic pain medication compared with the general surgery population.Experienced providers often know exactly where to inject anesthesia for hematoma blocks. Ultrasound-guided injection techniques, however, prove to be more accurate. Using ultrasound to identify the hematoma a...

CONCLUSIONS: The available literature supports the occurrence of delayed compressive neuropathy caused by scarring from substantial cutaneous burns in patients with electrical injuries. This case shows that electrical injuries may cause CTS in the absence of severe scarring through other mechanisms such as direct injuries to the nerve. Therefore, patients with electrical burns should be routinely examined for peripheral nerve compression symptoms in follow-ups, even when there are minimal cutaneous burns.
