The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of age and sex on the severity of physical and psychological dependence in morphine-dependent rats. The young/aged male and female Wistar rats were chronically treated with bi-daily doses (10 mg/kg, at 12 h intervals) of morphine for 14 days. Then, rats were tested for the severity of physical dependence on morphine (...

Publication date: Available online 19 October 2019Source: Sensors and Actuators B: ChemicalAuthor(s): Farbod Abazar, Abdollah NoorbakhshAbstractConsidering the importance of measuring insulin in the prevention and diagnosis of diabetes-related illnesses, here we introduced an ultrasensitive electrochemical aptamer-based sensor for detection of insulin in human blood serum. In this research, carbon quantum dots (CQDs) were synthesized using simple, fast and cheap methods from candle soot. By dispersion of the CQDs in chitosan (Chi) matrix, homogenous CQD-Chit nano-composite was obtained. The experimental results demonstrate...

Different from previous knowledge, the catalytic efficiency of the Fe-based amorphous ribbons doesn't decrease linearly with increased annealing temperature before glass transition. The catalytic ability of the FePC ribbons annealed at 553 and 593 K is worse than that of as-quenched ribbons, whil...

Title says it all. #1.) "My widget is broken". - This is generally a PEG tube that is broken, or a line that won't flush, or a whatever. In nearly every circumstance, this can either WAIT UNTIL MORNING and/or CAN BE TAKEN CARE OF IN A THOUSAND OTHER SETTINGS THAN THE ER. 3:30 AM PEG tube dysfunction?! Put the patient back to bed, and then call the facility MD at 7 AM. 10:30 PM catheter that won't drain urine? Flush it, and let the old man sleep. He'll sleep hard overnight. Then, sort...

Publication date: Available online 19 October 2019Source: International Journal of PsychophysiologyAuthor(s): Mark Parent, Vsevolod Peysakhovich, Kevin Mandrick, Sébastien Tremblay, Mickaël CausseAbstractThe ability to identify reliable and sensitive physiological signatures of psychological dimensions is key to developing intelligent adaptive systems that may in turn help to mitigate human error in complex operations. The challenge of this endeavor lies with diagnosticity. Despite different underlying causes, the physiological symptoms of workload and acute psychological stress manifest in similar ways and can...
