(1) Referred to as the "monitorial system," his method utilized students as monitors who performed many of the tasks normally undertaken by a teacher; it was used to teach classes that often exceeded a thousand students at one time.
(2) The lower prevalence of this electrophoretic form in presumably healthy individuals (p = 7%) and noncancer hospitalized patients (p = 30%) suggests that it may be useful as a diagnostic or monitory marker.
(3) Their plasma clofibrate and creatine kinase levels were constantly monitoried to detect clofibrate myotoxicity which we have observed in uremic patients at plasma levels generally considered safe in patients with normal renal function.
(4) Sixty-one monitorial assays of EGOT over 48 weeks supported the following interpretations.
(a.) Giving previous warning or notice; as, premonitory symptoms of disease.
(1) Clinical features of premonitory warning signs were compared with symptoms of 78 patients without a history of minor leak and clinical grade 1 (according to the criteria of Hunt & Hess) at admission.
(2) Report on a case in which a protracted foreign body in the esophagus (chicken bone) had perforated the wall in the cervical area and had led to premonitory bleeding and finally to massive hemorrhage.
(3) There was no premonitory clinical history of cerebrovascular attacks.
(4) A premonitory transient hemoptysis occurred in 4 of the 8 patients.
(5) However, a review of the prenatal histories of 33 infants showed that only a minority had premonitory features such as prolonged rupture of membranes, prolonged labour or maternal fever.
(6) The early appearance in the postoperative period, of fluid retention, azotemia, oliguria, inability to eat, and the early appearance of the symptoms of portal encephalopathy were premonitory of short-term survival.
(7) However, the period of premonitory symptoms preceding FCA was at a 5% level significantly shorter than in AMI, provided that the unstable angina was the first symptom of IHD.
(8) In 5 out of 10 dogs verapamil (5 to 10 mg) delivered into the septal artery caused an abrupt onset of ventricular fibrillation without premonitory dysrhythmias.
(9) The duration of the pre-clinical and clinical phases together ranged from 5.5 to greater than 55 h. The duration of the clinical phase alone ranged from 1.25 to greater than 24 h, except for a minority of mice in which death occurred suddenly from apparent heart failure with no premonitory signs 4.75-31 h after dosing.
(10) Primary ventricular fibrillation especially occurs during the first hours after acute myocardial infarction and is often not preceded by premonitory ventricular premature beats.
(11) Of these 22, 13 (57%) found the premonitory urges more bothersome than the tics themselves, and 12 (55%) thought the premonitory urges enhanced their ability to suppress tics.
(12) Disinhibition-complex behaviors the subject knows are dangerous or inappropriate but feels incapable of refraining from--was found in 10 (36%) of the 28 subjects and occurred only in subjects experiencing premonitory urges.
(13) There were premonitory symptoms suggesting cerebral ischemia.
(14) A "premonitory hematemesis" of bright red blood had occurred eight hours before admission.
(15) Oral candidiasis is one of the earliest premonitory signs of HIV infection and may present as erythematous, pseudomembranous, hyperplastic, or papillary variants, or as angular cheilitis.
(16) In many cases, jaundice was the premonitory symptom of pancreatic cancer.
(17) Seventy-one percent of the runners with coronary artery disease had premonitory symptoms, and most ignored such symptoms and continued to train or race.
(18) Ventricular bigeminy is a premonitory sign of TP in patients using class 1A antiarrhythmic drugs.
(19) Splenectomized patients must be informed of the possibility of a serious, potentially fatal infection and its premonitory symptoms.
(20) It is therefore suggested that the premonitory and precipitating features are more specific in the diagnosis of convulsive syncope.
