Our results show that ocular pulse amplitude is a reliable, safe screening test for carotid artery stenosis.
All pacemakers were working on factory settings of pulse amplitude 3.
The adjustable parameters in the pulsed plate column are: pulse frequency, pulse amplitude, and continuous and dispersed phase flow rates.
However, by comparing figures of waveforms generated with similar conditions of noise and jitter relative to pulse amplitude and transition duration (or pulse duration), it appears the waveforms extracted using the median method exhibit less departure from the target values in the vicinities of aberrations than does the spline method.
Brotto determined that in normal women, hyperventilation--which activates the sympathetic nervous system--increased the change in vaginal pulse amplitude between neutral and erotic films.

The detector cells have a high signal-to-noise ratio through the use of high-level signals with a dynamic range of over 3V, and meet FCC/CE requirements with their low pulse amplitude (5V) and low frequency (typically 60 kHz) operation.
In general, in all pulse voltammeric methods, the observed current increases with the pulse amplitude (or the square wave amplitude in the case of SW voltammetry): the shape is similar to the square root function.
In certain conditions, the isolated pulse amplitude relative to the threshold level could be 10 times smaller than the DC logic level.
