Download e-book for iPad: The Impact of Desert Dust Across the Mediterranean by Filippo Giorgi (auth.), Stefano Guerzoni, Roy Chester (eds.)

The ambience is a vital pathway for the delivery of continentally-derived fabric to the oceans. during this admire the Mediterranean Sea is of distinct value simply because its surroundings gets inputs of anthropogenic aerosols from the north and wasteland- derived Saharan dusts from the south. The dusts, a lot of that's transported within the kind of seasonal `pulses', have very important results on weather, marine chemistry and sedimentation within the Mediterranean Sea.

Download e-book for iPad: The Variables of Moral Capacity by David C. Thomasma (auth.), David C. Thomasma, David N.

Ethical capability is a vital characteristic of what it capability to be human. during this quantity, the participants have taken at the daunting activity of attempting to distinguish among criminal and ethical ability. This contrast is tough every now and then for clinicians, philosophers and felony students alike. a part of the problem of defining ethical skill lies within the hassle of appropriately categorizing it.

This NATO complicated examine Institute was once the fourth in a chain dedicated to the topic of part transitions and instabilities with specific consciousness to structural section transforma~ions. starting wi th the 1st Geilo institute in 19'(1 we've seen the emphasis evolve from the easy quasiharmonic smooth mode description in the Landau idea, during the unforeseen spectral constitution reĀ­ provided through the "central height" (1973), to such matters as melting, turbulence and hydrodynamic instabilities (1975).

1975), such measurements were made without complications using a gamma camera. Following imaging of the coronary arteries, the patient is placed under the gamma camera and approximately 20 mCi of xenon-133, dissolved in 1 to 5 cc of Ringer's solution are injected as a bolus through the selectively placed catheter (Figure 33D). The exhaled radioactive gas is drawn through an isolated duct system to an outside exhaust. A recording is made by a gamma camera using a pinhole collimator, and the radioxenon washout curves are analyzed using a monoexponential method, aided by the computer.

The second source of thromboembolism consists of the formation of a stasis clot in the C because of an improper flushing technique. This embolus may be much larger than the fibrin sheath on the C surface and may well represent a comparatively common cause of thromboembolism, resulting in stroke or myocardial infarction. The contrast material is probably not solely responsible for a significant number of myocardial infarctions. As could be shown by the xenon washout technique, the intracoronary injection of contrast material markedly increases myocardial tissue flow because of diffuse vasodilatation.

On rare occasions, however, a diffuse peripheral spasm may be induced by the contrast material as observed in one of our patients. The RC stayed opacified for 2 min with no evidence of dissection; severe chest pain and ECG changes of ischemia resulted. After administration of nitroglycerin and oxygen, the RC system slowly cleared and the patient made an uneventful recovery. It is possible that in this case a diffuse peripheral vasal spasm occurred, resulting in acute myocardial ischemia. Dislodged atheromatous material represents a third source of thromboembolism.
