Effects of formaldehyde exposure on anxiety-like and depression-like behavior, cognition, central levels of glucocorticoid receptor and tyrosine hydroxylase in mice.

Formaldehyde exposure is toxic to the brains of mammals, but the mechanism remains unclear. We investigated the effects of inhaled formaldehyde on anxiety, depression, cognitive capacity and central l...

The Australian Work Exposures Study: Prevalence of Occupational Exposure to Formaldehyde.

The aims of this study were to produce a population-based estimate of the prevalence of work-related exposure to formaldehyde, to identify the main circumstances of exposure and to describe the use of...

A Room-Temperature Operation Formaldehyde Sensing Material Printed Using Blends of Reduced Graphene Oxide and Poly(methyl methacrylate).

This work demonstrates a printable blending material, i.e., reduced graphene oxide (RGO) mixed with poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA), for formaldehyde sensing. Based on experimental results, 2% RGO/10...

Short-term exposure to formaldehyde promotes oxidative damage and inflammation in the trachea and diaphragm muscle of adult rats.

Formaldehyde (FA) is an environmental pollutant widely used in industry. Exposure to FA causes irritation of the respiratory mucosa and is associated with inflammation and oxidative stress in the airw...

Ultrasound Strain Measurements for Evaluating Local Pulmonary Ventilation.

Local lung function is difficult to evaluate, because most lung function estimates are either global in nature, e.g. pulmonary function tests, or require equipment that cannot be used at a patient's b...

Precancerous Myeloid Cells in Chinese Factory Workers Exposed or Not Exposed to Formaldehyde

RATIONALE: Exposure to formaldehyde in the work place may affect the risk of developing cancer later in life. Learning about the long-term effects of formaldehyde exposure may help the stu...

Reduced of Ambient Melamine Exposure by Melamine Workplace Intervention

The investigators recent study has found that ambient melamine exposure can cause the increase of biomarkers of renal tubular injury in melamine manufacturing workers. Thus, in this year, ...

Comparison Between Volume Controlled Ventilation and Pressure Controlled Ventilation

To assess the potential benefits on mechanical ventilation plateau pressure of pressure controlled mode versus volume controlled mode for laparoscopic bariatric surgery in obese patients (...

Carnoy`s Solution Versus Formalin in Rectal Cancer Specimens Following Neoadjuvant Chemoradiation: a Randomized Trial

This study evaluates the number of lymph nodes dissected in rectal cancer specimens following fixation with 10% neutral buffered formaldehyde or Carnoy's solution. Half of the specimens wi...

Manual Ventilation Versus Pressure Controlled Mechanical Ventilation in Children

The investigator will compare the feasibility of manual ventilation and pressure-controlled mechanical ventilation during facemask ventilation in children. The hypothesis is that the incid...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Ventilatory support system using frequencies from 60-900 cycles/min or more. Three types of systems have been distinguished on the basis of rates, volumes, and the system used. They are high frequency positive-pressure ventilation (HFPPV); HIGH-FREQUENCY JET VENTILATION; (HFJV); and high-frequency oscillation (HFO).

Respiratory support system used primarily with rates of about 100 to 200/min with volumes of from about one to three times predicted anatomic dead space. Used to treat respiratory failure and maintain ventilation under severe circumstances.

Local antibacterial that probably acts by releasing formaldehyde in aqueous solutions. It is used for irrigation of infected body cavities - bladder, peritoneum, etc. and as a spray for burns.

Injury to the nervous system secondary to exposure to lead compounds. Two distinct clinical patterns occur in children (LEAD POISONING, NERVOUS SYSTEM, CHILDHOOD) and adults (LEAD POISONING, NERVOUS SYSTEM, ADULT). In children, lead poisoning typically produces an encephalopathy. In adults, exposure to toxic levels of lead is associated with a peripheral neuropathy.

Ketonic amines prepared from the condensation of a ketone with formaldehyde and ammonia or a primary or secondary amine. A Mannich base can act as the equivalent of an alpha,beta unsaturated ketone in synthesis or can be reduced to form physiologically active amino alcohols.
