21. Wearable cardioverter-defibrillator (WCD) therapy in primary and secondary prevention of sudden cardiac arrest in patients at risk

, these device generations were analysed in this assessment. The latest model, WCD 4000 – CE marked in Europe in 2011, is the device described in the Technical Characteristics of Technology domain (TEC) as it is the only model currently offered in Europe. The WCD consists of two main components: (1) an electrode belt and garment that surrounds the patient’s chest, and (2) a monitor that the patient wears around the waist or from a shoulder strap. The electrode belt connects to the monitor and provides (...) drugs that improve reverse re- modelling and drugs that are helpful for reducing the frequency of coronary thrombotic occlusions [1]. • GL directed catheter (radiofrequency) ablation, a procedure that involves a series of thin and flexible catheters (wires) that are inserted in a blood vessel via the patient’s neck, groin, or arm and guided to the heart. The catheters carry heat energy that destroys those areas of the heart where abnormal heartbeats cause arrhythmias [1]. • AEDs available at homes

in which flow is applied to 1 monolayer surface and then the tube networks connect with 2 sides of the microfluidic device (containing flow channels). Directional flow ensues through the tubes that connect the flow channels. Other variations of such models have been to create tube channels artificially in 3D matrixes to enable user-defined geometries of the vascular network and then seed the channels with ECs for the creation of tube networks in the absence of EC-driven tubulogenesis and vascular (...) be used in conjunction with in vivo approaches and hybrid strategies in which ECs are manipulated in vitro and then introduced in vivo to interface with a host vasculature.

landscape characterisation (Knight, 2009), LandScape Information System (LSIS) (Oh, 2001) and viewshed analysis 2 (Fisher, 1996). The ability to improve accessibility of a home entrance through landscape is impacted by a combination of considerations of features unique to the site and home itself. In the case of the primary home entrance, which is the threshold between the landscape and the interior, an accessible entrance and garden involves providing a continuous unobstructed path connecting all (...) 21 The Residential Landscape The residential landscape can be considered as a combination of building and outdoor elements, which might include the garden, external stairs or walkways leading to the home itself and any threshold or connection between the building and garden, and the garden and street/footpath.

(corresponding to syllabic rate), irrespective of speech intelligibility. Crucially, enhanced synchronization to the intelligibility of speech was selectively observed in primary visual cortex in EB, suggesting that this region is at the interface between speech perception and comprehension. Moreover, EB showed overall enhanced functional connectivity between temporal and occipital cortices that are sensitive to speech intelligibility and altered directionality when compared to the sighted group (...) Neuronal populations in the occipital cortex of the blind synchronize to the temporal dynamics of speech The occipital cortex of early blind individuals (EB) activates during speech processing, challenging the notion of a hard-wired neurobiology of language. But, at what stage of speech processing do occipital regions participate in EB?

32. Accelerated Development of the First-Order Central Auditory Neurons With Spontaneous Activity (PubMed)

Accelerated Development of the First-Order Central Auditory Neurons With Spontaneous Activity In developing sensory systems, elaborate morphological connectivity between peripheral cells and first-order central neurons emerges via genetic programming before the onset of sensory activities. However, how the first-order central neurons acquire the capacity to interface with peripheral cells remains elusive. By making patch-clamp recordings from mouse brainstem slices, we found that a subset (...) as synaptic pruning towards mature phenotypes compared to those without SFs. Our results imply that SFs of the first-order central neurons may reciprocally promote their wiring and firing with peripheral inputs, potentially enabling the correlated activity and crosstalk between the developing brain and external environment.

or the quantum tunneling effect. The conductive wires serve as electron transfer stations when the distance between two separate liquid-metal droplets is far beyond that which quantum tunneling effects can support. The unique advantage of the current droplet circuit lies in the fact that it allows parallel electron transport, high flexibility, self-healing, regulation and multi-point connectivity without needing to worry about the circuit break. This would extend the category of classical electrical circuits (...) conceptual electrical circuit, termed as droplet circuit, to fulfill the special needs described above. Such unconventional circuits are immersed in a solution and composed of liquid metal droplets, conductive ions or wires, such as carbon nanotubes. With specifically-designed topological or directional structures/patterns, the liquid-metal droplets composing the circuit can be discrete and disconnected from each other, while achieving the function of electron transport through conductive routes

exercise, although excess sweating can result in loosening of the contact between electrode and skin. Wrapping the torso with a 6-inch elastic bandage or with a fitted torso net can reduce noise produced by electrode and cable movement, especially in obese patients.

When electrocardiographic changes occur with hyperventilation, this should be acknowledged in the test interpretation.

bones and muscles connected by tendons and ligaments. T endons join muscle to bone and allow movement in the knee joint, whereas ligaments connect bone to bone and provide stability of the joint. There are 2 types of ligament in the knee joint: the extra-articular ligaments that run down the side of the knee on the outside of the joint and the intra-articular cruciate ligaments that are within the knee joint and bathed in synovial fluid (eOrthopod 2015). Injuries to the knee joint are common (...) . The estimated incidence in the USA is 2.29 injuries per 1000 people (Gage et al. 2012). Damage to the ligaments is the most common type of injury, causing about 40% of all knee injuries. Of these ligament-specific injuries, approximately 50% involve individual intra-articular ligaments (Bollen 2000). There are 2 main intra-articular ligaments in the knee joint: the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL). Both ligaments connect the femur to the tibia.
