Baseline blood flow velocity and oxygenation (SvO2) were lower (−20 percent), and the maximum SvO2 increase (overshoot) was higher (52.6 percent); there was also a marginal increase noted in aortic pulse wave velocity (3 percent).
The analyst's dive into transcranial doppler ultrasound and stroke risk in patients with sickle cell disease provides him with additional confidence on the use of TCD flow velocity as a confirmatory trial endpoint for voxelotor ahead of Global Blood's pre-new drug application meeting anticipated to occur in the first quarter.
In this manner, the present work aimed to determine the best thickness for producing evaporative cooling pads constituted of vegetal loofah, and the adequate air flow velocity which passes through the panel, based on the higher process efficiency.
A modified Nagatani hydrodynamic model [2] determines the optimal traffic flow velocity estimating the traffic flow difference in information between the actual flow and the optimal flow in line [3-5].
Early investigations focusing on factors such as substrate size and flow velocity could not adequately explain the patchy distribution of mussels (Holland Bartels, 1990; Strayer and Ralley, 1993; Brim Box et al., 2002).
They showed the effect of the nonlocal parameter, fluid flow velocity on fundamental frequency of single-walled carbon nanotube.
However, when compared with eDON patients, the group without eDON had significantly higher Doppler ultrasound parameters for the OA (peak systolic flow velocity p=0.019, mean flow p=0.013) and for the CRA (peak systolic flow velocity p=0.010, end diastolic flow velocity p<0.001, resistivity index p=0.009).
28 (ANI): Seems like, new advances have been made in measuring blood flow velocity in deep tissues.
Many researchers have conducted extensive investigation of the freezing problem with high flow velocity. First, based on the Harlan [5] hydrothermal coupling model, a large amount of extension research was conducted.
This is due to the minimum flow area of the decompression slot in the partially pressured injection tool, where the flow rate of the solution is constant with the greatest flow velocity at that point.
The declared preset pressure corresponds to the pressure at the outlet of the pressure regulator operated under a reference flow velocity of 1 m [s.sup.-1] [8].
