Prevalence of idle peripherally inserted central catheters in adult patients: A multicenter cross-sectional study.

CONCLUSION: In conclusion, idle peripherally inserted central catheters were common in adult patients, but the low risks of catheter-related complications may justify maintaining a peripherally inserted central catheter for further observation when necessary.

VijayanAbstractZinc Oxide thin films received extensive attention in recent few decades due to its attracted salient features such as anti-corrosion, anti-bacteria and low electronic conductivity. In this communication, we have reported the modified features of Zinc Oxide thin films grown on GaN substrate by RF magnetron sputtering technique. Structural analysis revealed that the deposited films having wurtzite structure. The crystallites exhibited preferential orientation along ...

SurmenevAbstractThis work reports on the effect of calcination and poling processes on the crystalline phase and piezoresponse of poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) micropillar arrays. PVDF micropillars were prepared by the imprinting method, heated and treated with high-voltage poling. The effect of the treatment conditions on the crystallization behaviour and the piezoelectric properties of the patterned PVDF films was investigated by pi...

Authors: Duffy IR, Boyle AJ, Vasdev N Abstract Machine learning (ML) algorithms have found increasing utility in the medical imaging field and numerous applications in the analysis of digital biomarkers within positron emission tomography (PET) imaging have emerged. Interest in the use of artificial intelligence in PET imaging for the study of neurodegenerative diseases and oncology stems from the potential for such techniques to streamline decision support for physicians providing early and accurate diagnosis and allowing personalized treatment regimens. In this review, the use of ML to improve PET image acquisiti...

The study was targeted to investigate the functional and structural differences between different genome groups of banana and its influence on functional characteristics and chemical constituents. Green banana flour (GBF) was prepared from five varieties such as Grand Naine (AAA), Monthan (ABB), Saba (ABB), Nendran (AAB) and Popoulu (AAB). The flour of Monthan recorded higher swelling ...

Kim, Mi-Ja Kim, JaeHwan LeeAbstract3D scanning method was developed to differentiate Octopus minor blocks which had surplus water to increase weight of O. minor. Effects of soaking time (0.5, 1 and 3 h) and apparent density of O. minor were determined using the number of O. minor in a block (4, 5, 6, and 7). A 0.5, 1, and 3 h soaking time increased O. minor weight by 11.85, 16.02, and 24.53%, respectively. Apparent density of non-weight gained O. minor blocks was significantly hig...

CONCLUSION: Acute high dose supplementation with RV improved FMD in patients after CABG surgery but impaired FMD in patients who underwent PCI. The revascularization method-related differential effects of RV may be due to its direct effects on endothelial-dependent dilator responses. Our findings have important implications for personalized treatment and stratification of older CAD patients. PMID: 31429599 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
