(14) From this, and previous studies indicating a dependency of contraction frequency on the inward verapamil-sensitive Na influx, it is suggested that the drugs modify the automaticity of this preparation by a primary influence on membrane Na exchange.
(15) Automatic analysis of oculopneumoplethysmography recordings might minimize the risks of misinterpretation and might improve the clinical significance of the Gee-oculopneumoplethysmography test.
(16) Global left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) was obtained by radionuclide angiography and analyzed with an automatic detection program.
(17) 21 amino acids were determined by a liquid chromatograph, consisting of an automatic controller of the gradient, nonautomatic injector, fluorimetric detector and recording device.
(18) The algorithms involved are simple and a microprocessor-based automatic PCG analysis system using the proposed technique is being contemplated.
(19) Seventeen patients had type I complex partial seizures (CPS) with three consecutive phases: initial motionless staring, oral-alimentary automatisms, and reactive quasipurposeful movements during impaired consciousness.
(20) The case of a 32-year-old man who suffered a blow to his left supraorbital region and eyebrow in an automatic closing door is reported to draw attention to the uncommon but trivial nature of this injury which may result in profound visual loss.
(adv.) In a passive manner; inertly; unresistingly.
(adv.) As a passive verb; in the passive voice.
(1) The HBV infection was tested by the reversed passive hemagglutination method for the HBsAg and by the passive hemagglutination method for the anti-HBs at the time of recruitment in 1984.
(2) If the method was taken into routine use in a diagnostic laboratory, the persistence of reverse passive haemagglutination reactions would enable grouping results to be checked for quality control purposes.
(3) In the stage 24 chick embryo, a paced increase in heart rate reduces stroke volume, presumably by rate-dependent decrease in passive filling.
(4) A 24-h test trial employing a dry target demonstrated a robust memory for the training manifested in passive avoidance behavior.
(5) Rats were injected subcutaneously with 10 ml of air into the dorsal skin to make an air-pouch and with 2 ml of antiserum at an appropriate dilution for passive sensitization, and then 5 ml of air was removed.
(6) None of these MAbs showed any virus-neutralizing activity in vitro; however, mice passively immunized with the purified MAbs were protected from lethal infection by the JHM strain of mouse hepatitis virus.
(7) 3) The magnitude of K+ release is the ratio of two opposing mechanisms, a passive efflux and an active reuptake.
(8) Clinical evaluation of passive range of motion, antero-posterior laxity and the appearance of the joint space showed little or no difference between the reconstruction methods.
(9) If this is what 70s stoners were laughing at, it feels like they’ve already become acquiescent, passive parts of media-relayed consumer society; precursors of the cathode-ray-frazzled pop-culture exegetists of Tarantino and Kevin Smith in the 90s.
(10) In the appetitive passive avoidance task, only the substantia nigra lesion group exhibited a deficiency.
(11) YOH shifted the healthy subjects' mood towards feeling panicked, elevated systolic blood pressure and plasma prolactin concentrations, reduced digit symbol substitution, and induced drowsiness and passiveness.
(12) Passive avoidance performance of HO-DIs was, indeed, influenced by the age of the subject at the time of testing; HO-DIs reentered the shock compartment sooner than HE at 35 days, but later than HE at 120 days.
(13) To explain some of these results a theoretical model is presented to demonstrate that while short circuiting can block the passive ionic movement, it will cause an increase in the energy consumption of the system and introduce certain important changes in the ionic barriers and e.m.fs.
(14) Brazil and Argentina unite in protest against culture of sexual violence Read more The symbolic power of so many women standing together proves that focusing on victims does not mean portraying women as passive.
(15) Simultaneous atrial imaging and pulsed Doppler velocity measurement showed that passive atrioventricular flow occurred late in atrial lengthening and active atrioventricular flow occurred during atrial contraction.
(16) The first was a passive avoidance task in which the chicks were allowed to peck at a green training stimulus (a small light-emitting diode, LED) coated in the bitter liquid, methylanthranilate, giving rise to a strong disgust response and consequent avoidance of the green stimulus.
(17) The findings of respiratory and sensitivity tests suggest: (i) that passive smoking may trigger asthma attacks in subjects who suffer from asthma and (ii) that the airways of such subjects show increased histamine reactivity four hours after the passive smoke exposure.
(18) Fifty-seven strains of enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli isolated from humans and pigs and producing thermolabile (LT) enterotoxin were used to ascertain the efficiency of the Biken test compared to the passive immune haemolysis test (PIH), considered as very sensitive for detecting that enterotoxin.
(19) The evolution with time of cardio-respiratory variables, blood pressure and body temperature has been studied on six males, resting in semi-nude conditions during short (30 min) cold stress exposure (0 degree C) and during passive recovery (60 min) at 20 degrees C. Passive cold exposure does not induce a change in HR but increases VO2, VCO2, Ve and core temperature Tre, whereas peripheral temperature is significantly lowered.
(20) Particularly, the passive mechanism concept to explain obstructive sleep apnea during REM sleep advocated by Remmers and Guilleminault has substantially contributed to the recent development of research activities in this field.
