(7) On the basis of these data, the computer, upon the basis of a program specially developed for this purpose, automatically calculates the corresponding amount of negative-points, which parallels the severity of the joint changes, i.e.
(8) But to treat a mistake as an automatic disqualification for advancement – even as heinous a mistake as presiding over a botched operation that resulted in the killing of an innocent man – could be depriving organisations, and the country, of leaders who have been tested and will not make the same mistake again.
(9) A method using selective saturation pulses and gated spin-echo MRI automatically corrects for this motion and thus eliminates misregistration artifact from regional function analysis.
(10) They were fitted with a gastric cannula through which 'milk' was infused automatically.
(11) Ventricular defibrillation was acheived in active conscious dogs with a chronically implanted automatic system composed of a defibrillator and an alternating current fibrillator.
(12) Snipers fired from rooftops, and plainclothes Saleh supporters armed with automatic rifles, swords and batons attacked the protesters.
(13) This study was designed to determine the effects of hypoxia for shorter periods (1, 2, 3 and 6 weeks) on the neonatal heart as well as the chronotropic effects of [H+] on sino-atrial automaticity.
(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 reflex manner; reflectively.
(1) This suggests that the inputs from the airway mechanoreceptors reflexly activate the tracheal smooth muscle cells.
(2) Increased splanchnic nerve activity was generated (reflexly) with insulin treatment.
(3) Further systemic pressor responses to bilateral carotid occlusion and reflexly mediated alterations in the perfused hindlimb vascular resistance were essentially identical in both the treated and placebo groups.
(4) Reflexly evoked tachycardia after prazosin occurred in the SHAM but not in the SAD groups.
(5) An increase in sympathetic nerve activity brought about reflexly by a drop in blood pressure of 45-47 mm Hg was almost halved by intrathecal Saralasin.
(6) Sympathetic nerve inhibition elicited reflexly during intravenous infusions of sodium nitroprusside was reduced in 3-month-old rats, but increased in 14-month-old rats.
(7) When apnoea occurs centrally or reflexly, carotid chemoreceptor excitation resulting from asphyxia now causes a much enhanced bradycardia and even cardiac arrest, but paradoxically does not usually affect respiration.
(8) In anesthetized cats, we tested the hypothesis that intra-arterial injections of lactic and hydrochloric acid, which created levels of these substances in muscle similar to those seen during contraction, reflexly increased cardiovascular and ventilatory function.
(9) Arterial baroreceptors reflexly regulate sympathetic and heart rate responses to alteration of blood pressure.
(10) It was concluded that reflex increase of efferent activity of the gastric vagi was responsible for the gastric motility facilitation produced by hind paw stimulation, and also that reflexly increased efferent activity of the gastric sympathetic nerves resulted in gastric motility inhibition produced by abdominal skin stimulation.
(11) The cholinergic motor system can be driven reflexly, and most bronchoconstrictor reflexes have been established as vagal and cholinergic.
(12) It is concluded that, firstly, the antihypertensive action of verapamil and nifedipine in conscious SHR is due to systemic vasodilation that is associated with reflexly increased CO; secondly, that verapamil has a direct negative chronotropic effect, but nifedipine appears to be devoid of such an effect, and finally that the ability of verapamil to decrease TPR may depend upon resting sympathetic tone.
(13) Slowly-adapting stretch receptors are stimulated by increases in broncho-motor tone and reflexly inhibit bronchoconstriction subserving a negative feedback mechanism.
(14) The results indicate that activation of pulmonary vagal afferent fibers of C or A-delta category in unanesthetized cats reflexly modifies the respiratory motor output in a way that resembles the human response to PVC or pulmonary embolism.
(15) Static contraction of hind-limb muscles is well known to increase reflexly cardiovascular function.
(16) All the respiratory branches (Vth, IXth and Xth) and both cardiac branches fired rhythmic bursts of activity, synchronous with ventilation, which continued (at a higher rate) following paralysis, indicating that they originated in the CNS rather than arising reflexly from stimulation of pharyngeal mechanoreceptors.
(17) Static exercise increases arterial pressure, heart rate, and ventilation, effects which are believed in part to arise reflexly from a metabolic stimulus in the working muscle.
(18) This study shows that tracheal slowly adapting stretch receptors are activated by smooth muscle contractions reflexly induced by chemoreceptor stimulation.
(19) Stimulation of chemically sensitive receptors in the stomach with capsaicin is known to reflexly increase heart rate, arterial pressure, left ventricular contractility, and systemic vascular resistance.
