Evaluating the preservation and isolation of stool pathogens using the COPAN FecalSwab™ Transport System and Walk-Away Specimen Processor.

The isolation of stool pathogens is difficult due to their fastidious nature and the rapid overgrowth of fecal flora. In this study, we evaluate the preservation and isolation of enteric pathogens fro...

Jaguar and puma captivity and trade among the Maya: Stable isotope data from Copan, Honduras.

From Moctezuma's zoo to animals kept in captivity at Teotihuacan, there is increasing evidence that Mesoamericans managed wild animals for a myriad of purposes. The present study situates ritualized a...

The Future of Health Care: Protocol for Measuring the Potential of Task Automation Grounded in the National Health Service Primary Care System.

Recent advances in technology have reopened an old debate on which sectors will be most affected by automation. This debate is ill served by the current lack of detailed data on the exact capabilities...

Extending Three Existing Models to Analysis of Trust in Automation: Signal Detection, Statistical Parameter Estimation, and Model-Based Control.

The objective is to propose three quantitative models of trust in automation.

Laboratory automation reduces time to report of positive blood cultures and improves management of patients with bloodstream infection.

The impact on time to results (TTR) and clinical decisions was evaluated for mono-microbial positive blood cultures (BC) processed using the BD Kiestra Work Cell Automation (WCA) system. Positive BC w...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of automatic machines or processing devices in libraries. The automation may be applied to library administrative activities, office procedures, and delivery of library services to users.

A complication of pregnancy in which the UMBILICAL CORD wraps around the fetal neck once or multiple times. In some cases, cord entanglement around fetal neck may not affect pregnancy outcome significantly. In others, the nuchal cord may lead to restricted fetal blood flow, oxygen transport, fetal development, fetal movement, and complicated delivery at birth.

A species of European freshwater LEECHES used for BLOODLETTING in ancient times and also for LEECHING in modern times.

A class of drugs that act by inhibition of sodium influx through cell membranes. Blockade of sodium channels slows the rate and amplitude of initial rapid depolarization, reduces cell excitability, and reduces conduction velocity.

Method of analyzing chemicals using automation.
