Because of the significant risk of severe cardiorespiratory failure, we transported the mother to a neonatal cardiac surgical center at 38 weeks of gestation. Indeed,
the baby showed severe cardiopulmonary failure after birth, showing 100% of cardiothoracic ratio on the chest X-ray film, but was saved by the successful Dor procedure, including surgical resection of the aneurysm at 10 h of life. In this case, serial echocardiographic evaluation can allow us to monitor the hemodynamics and lead to successful postnatal management.”
“We extend the standard distorted wave Born approximation (DWBA) to include the second-order Born amplitude in order to describe the multiple interactions between a projectile and an atomic target. Both the first- and second-order DWBA models are used to calculate triply differential cross sections (TDCS) of coplanar (e, 2e) on atomic argon with the scattered electron energy Linsitinib molecular weight fixed at 500 eV, the scattering angle
at 6 and the ejected electron energies at 37, 74 and 205 eV. Overall agreements with experimental measurements have been obtained in shape, and the second-order DWBA model improves the calculations as expected, especially Selleckchem VE 821 for recoil peak of TDCS.”
“Relationships between species richness per plant life form and the soil properties: infiltrability, clay plus silt content, salinity, and pH were investigated at eighteen study sites located in western South Africa and Namibia. Plant species data were categorized into five life forms: phanerophytes, chamaephytes, hemicryptophytes, therophytes, and geophytes. A boundary line approach was used to determine ranges of soil properties across which plant richness was constrained or potentially maximal. Ranges of soil properties at which
richness was potentially maximal differed between life forms as follows: total plant richness (similar to 50-200 mm h(-1) infiltrability, similar to 5-20% clay & silt, <100 mS m(-1) EC and 6.5-8.5 pH); phanerophytes (similar to 200-500 mm h(-1), <5%, <100 mS m(-1), 5.5-7.0); hemicryptophytes (similar CH5183284 to 100-250 mm h(-1), 5-18%, <200 mS m(-1), 6.0-8.0), therophytes (similar to 50-250 mm h(-1), 5-10%, >50 mS m(-1), 6.5-8.5), chamaephytes (<250 mm h(-1), 5-25%, >50 mS m(-1), 7.0-8.0), and geophytes (<200 mm h(-1), 5-20%, similar to 50-100 mS m(-1), 6.5-8.0). Soil infiltrability, clay plus silt content, EC and pH seem to be useful properties to consider within plant richness investigations. Depending on physiological adaptations of plants these properties may constrain species distribution. Causality cannot be demonstrated from the relationships; however they can lead to plausible hypotheses as to the ecological processes governing plant distribution patterns. (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd.
