(v. i.) To soar; to ascend; to mount. See Stirrup.
(v. i.) An inflamed swelling or boil on the edge of the eyelid.
(1) Thus, the estimation of the STI proved helpful and reliable in the early detection of incipient heart failure and in the selection of high risk patients in children receiving ADR treatment.
(2) Systolic time intervals (STI) of the right ventricle, however, were not influenced by the beam angle.
(3) Since 2007, MSF has opened family support centres and clinics around the country where survivors can access first aid, psychological treatment, HIV and STI medication, vaccinations and emergency contraception.
(4) Running speech was used as input signal and STI was calculated from the envelopes of the squared, noise-free speech signal and of the processed, squared, noisy signal in 23 critical bands.
(5) In studies in calcium-free tissue bath solutions, the direct contractile action of STI was abolished; however, its amplification of responses to norepinephrine remained, suggesting that this latter effect of STI is not entirely dependent upon calcium influx into vascular smooth muscle cells.
(6) In the saline groups there was a marked decrease in breaking strength at 24 and 72 h. Most of the strength was restored at 120 h. The metalloproteinase inhibitor tiopronin, which in a previous study had diminished the decrease in breaking strength at 24 h, was without effect at 72 h. Rats given STI, which is a group-specific serine proteinase inhibitor, had substantially higher values of breaking strength than saline-treated controls at 24 and 72 h. At 120 h no difference was found.
(7) STI and thiopental plasma levels were measured before induction and when corneal reflex and trapezius muscle response, indicators of anesthetic depth equivalent to response to surgical stimulation, were lost.
(8) This strain produced STI as determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.
(9) Heart rates, blood pressures and systolic time intervals (STI) were measured in relation to exercise tolerance and capacity.
(10) Now, however, STI are being used increasingly in clinical pharmacological studies.
(11) Incubation for 18 hours at 37 degrees C of the strain-producer (STI-1) and a double immunization scheme with the antigen obtained proved to be the most rational conditions for inducing the immunological response in the vaccinated laboratory animals.
(12) The accuracy of STI parameters in predicting the presence of coronary disease was poor (less than 60%).
(13) Although physiological variables other than myocardial contractility, such as preload and afterload may influence STI during +Gz the effects of +Gz on stroke volume (SV) and cardiac output (CO) were estimated using previously described relationships between STI and invasively determined indices of cardiovascular function.
(14) Impedance cardiography was used for non-invasive determinations of systolic time intervals (STI) and cardiac output.
(15) The data suggests that the usual therapeutic doses of these cardiac glycosides do not cause significant changes in the peripheral circulation in patients with compensated coronary heart disease, but their action on STI is quite marked, showing a positive inotropic effect.
(16) On each occasion, the heart rate, systolic time intervals (STI) and systemic arterial blood pressure were monitored non-invasively.
(17) STI and DTI were measured from the simultaneous recordings of the apexcardiogram, carotid arterial pulse, electrocardiogram and phonocardiogram.
(18) We used STI's as parameters of cardiac performance.
(19) Measurement of STI may be a valuable tool in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac tamponade.
(20) In dogs with larger infarcts, STx, STy, and STM were significantly larger than in those with smaller infarcts both 15 min and 4 h after embolization.
(n.) See Sty, a boil.
(1) Clegg rejected the suggestion that the riots were the fulfilment of his prediction, made prior to the election, that there would be Greek-stye riots over the Tory cuts plans.
(2) Surgical trauma preceded the development of two lesions in one patient and a second patient presented with a positive history of recurrent styes, a chalazion, and a questionable history of trauma to the lid.
