(19) The advantage of this in vivo method is the possibility to determine the thyroidal activity at various times after 131I-application (2 phase test) and by repeated 131I-applications under different conditions (diet, age, for instance).
(20) In each instance, dexamethasone was given at midnight and the plasma ACTH concentration was determined at 9:00 a.m. on the day before and after administration of the dexamethasone.
(a.) Done or occurring in an instant, or without any perceptible duration of time; as, the passage of electricity appears to be instantaneous.
(a.) At or during a given instant; as, instantaneous acceleration, velocity, etc.
(1) Utilizing a range of operative Michaelis-Menten parameters that characterize phenytoin elimination via a single capacity-limited pathway, a situation assuming instantaneous absorption (case I) is compared with the situation in which continuous constant-rate absorption occurs (case II).
(2) This report represents the first comprehensive description of instantaneous and continous phasic blood velocity at the mitral valve during atrial arrhythmias in man.
(3) Doppler echocardiographic examination at the site of the pulmonary anastomosis revealed an instantaneous gradient less than 20 mmHg in 9 patients (45%), a gradient between 20 and 60 mmHg in 9 patients (45) and a gradient greater than 60 mmHg in two patients (10%).
(4) The present work describes two methods, the method of instantaneous dilution and that of gel filtration.
(5) It was concluded that 1) late ejection was quantitatively important to LV pumping, 2) behavior during late ejection was inconsistent with E(t)-R, and 3) ad hoc modification of E(t)-R models was not likely to yield LV pumping models that could satisfactorily reproduce instantaneous P(t) and Q(t) behavior over the entire ejection period.
(6) It is shown that when a constant current is applied such that a stable equilibrium and rhythmic firing are present, the following predictions are inherent in the HH system of equations: (a) Small instantaneous voltage perturbations to the axon given at points along its firing spike result in phase resetting curves (when new phase versus old phase is plotted) with an average slope of 1.
(7) Limits of agreement, in stable haemodynamic situations without drugs, were -20.0 and 22.4% of mean average flow for constant diameter Doppler flow estimates, and -14.5 and 15.1% of electromagnetic flow values for instantaneous diameter estimates.
(8) The I50 is 7 x 10(-6) M. The inhibitory effect is instantaneous and completely reversed by washing the cells with a Ringer solution.
(9) Bohr's equation (BE); 2. ideal alveolar air equation for O2 (IDO2); 3. end-tidal (ET); 4. by the Rahn's definition of 'mean alveolar gas', i.e., alveolar pressures are defined when instantaneous respiratory exchange ratio (IRQ) equals mean respiratory exchange ratio (MRQ).

(11) Inhibition was essentially instantaneous and irreversible to G-25 gel filtration.
(12) On the other hand, the values of the instantaneous frequency, duration, and rhythmicity of the copulatory thrusting movements performed during mounts, intromissions or ejaculations did not differ significantly from the values obtained under saline treatment.
(13) A beam flatness monitor is described which consists of 16 iron chambers and amplifiers, the outputs of which are sequentially sampled and displayed as a series of dots or lines on a conventional CRO, giving an instantaneous display of beam flatness variations.
(14) To assess the relation of instantaneous speed to discharge rate, the component of the discharge pattern related to direction was subtracted from the total discharge.

(17) Under these conditions, the instantaneous current observed as soon as the depolarizing pulse is applied displays outward rectification and reverses near ECl.
(18) For breast tissue characterization, three acoustic parameters, integrated attenuation coefficient(IAC), frequency-dependent attenuation coefficient(FDAC) and instantaneous frequency(IF), were estimated in vitro and processed to make images of these parameters for resected human breast specimens.
