A Literature Review of Immersion Pulmonary Edema.

Immersion pulmonary edema (IPE) is a rare but important complication associated with surface swimming and underwater diving. It tends to reoccur and can be fatal. It is not very well known to clinicians involved in the care of individuals participating in aquatic activities. We performed a systematic review of immersion pulmonary edema to describe the condition and provide guidelines for its management.

Practitioner accreditation for the practice of water immersion during labour and birth: Results from a mixed methods study.

CORP: Partitional Calorimetry.

For thermal physiologists, calorimetry is an important methodological tool to assess human heat balance during heat or cold exposures. A whole-body direct calorimeter remains the gold standard instrument for assessing human heat balance; however, this equipment is rarely available to most researchers. A more widely accessible substitute is partitional calorimetry, a method by which all components of the conceptual heat balance equation - metabolic heat production, conduction, radiation, convection, and evap...

Effects of bet size and multi-line play on immersion and respiratory sinus arrhythmia during electronic gaming machine use.

Electronic Gaming Machines (EGMs) are regarded as a relatively harmful gambling product, and are associated with psychological immersion (the 'machine zone') and physiological arousal. Specifically, immersion is a phenomenon of attention manifesting as an intense focus on the game at the expense of peripheral stimuli and goals. Past research has indicated significant levels of immersion in response to modern multi-line EGMs when the overall bet is increased, which further scales with risk for problem gambli...

Treatment delays can be contributing factors in the death of American football athletes from exertional heat stroke. Ideally, clinicians begin cold-water immersion (CWI) to reduce rectal temperature (T) to

Immersion pulmonary oedema: a cardiological perspective.

It is postulated that immersion pulmonary oedema (IPE) occurs because of combinations of factors that each increase the hydrostatic pressure gradient between the pulmonary capillaries and the alveoli. The factors, by definition, include the effects of immersion, particularly raised central blood volume and hence cardiac filling pressures. Breathing against a negative pressure is important but the magnitude of the effect depends on the relation of the diver's lung centroid to the source of the breathing gas ...

This investigation aimed to develop a novel self-healing and antibacterial dental resin composite. The effects of water immersion on its properties were also evaluated.

Effects of Water Immersion on Squat and Split-Squat Kinematics in Older Aged Adults.

This study examined the effect of water immersion on trunk and lower limb kinematics during squat exercises in older aged participants. Twenty-four active older aged adults (71.4 ± 5.4 yrs.) performed squats and split-squats on land and while partially submerged in water. Inertial sensors (100 Hz) were used to record trunk and lower-body kinematics. Water immersion increased the squat depth (squat: P=0.028, d=0.63, split-squat: P=0.005, d=0.83) and reduced the trunk flexion range (squat: P=0.006, d=0.76, s...

Nursing Students' Reactions to an Educational Experiential Immersion in Palliative Care.

We describe nursing students' reactions during participation in an experiential immersion in palliative care in which they interacted with seriously ill patients through gifting handmade shawls.

Radiative Energy Budgets in a Microbial Mat Under Different Irradiance and Tidal Conditions.

Irradiance and temperature variations during tidal cycles modulate microphytobenthic primary production potentially by changing the radiative energy balance of photosynthetic mats between immersion and emersion and thus sediment daily net metabolism. To test the effect of tidal stages on the radiative energy budget, we used microsensor measurements of oxygen, temperature, and scalar irradiance to estimate the radiative energy budget in a coastal photosynthetic microbial mat during immersion (constant water ...

Warm water immersion in patients with chronic heart failure: a pilot study : Shah immerse: HF.

Patients with chronic conditions, such as heart failure, swim regularly and most rehabilitation exercises are conducted in warm hydrotherapy pools. However, little is known about the acute effects of warm water immersion (WWI) on cardiac haemodynamics in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF).

Effect of rehydration schedule after four-hour head-out water immersion on running performance and recovery.

Head-out water immersion (HOWI) results in diuresis, which could potentially limit performance after egress to land. We examined the effect of rehydration on endurance, cardiovascular stability, and overnight recovery following a four-hour thermoneutral HOWI on 12 subjects.

Learning movements from a virtual instructor: Effects of spatial orientation, immersion, and expertise.

Motor learning is an essential task, but little is known about how it might be facilitated via instructional presentation, particularly with respect to recent technological advancements. We examined the effects of spatial orientation (0° vs. 180°) and immersion (immersive virtual reality vs. nonimmersive video) on the ability to reproduce complex, dynamic movement sequences. We also evaluated whether these effects were modulated by experience. Experienced dancers and novices practiced dances by imitating ...

A vaccine against streptococcosis, lactococcosis and enterococcosis in tilapia was formulated, ME-VAC Aqua Strept, as a polyvalent inactivated vaccine containing Streptococcus agalactiae, S. iniae, Lactococcus garvieae and Enterococcus faecalis along with a nano-particulate adjuvant. Use of ME-VAC Aqua Strept by injection or immersion resulted in an improved non-specific and adaptive immunity of broodstock and offspring. Intra-peritoneal vaccination of tilapia broodstock increased the total leukocyte count,...

Effect of electroacupuncture on the activity of corticotrophin-releasing hormone neurons in the hypothalamus and amygdala in rats exposed to restraint water-immersion stress.

To investigate the effects of electroacupuncture (EA) treatment on gastric mucosal lesions and the activity of corticotrophin-releasing hormone (CRH) neurons in the paraventricular nucleus (PVN) of the hypothalamus and the central nucleus of the amygdala (CNA) in a rat model of restraint water-immersion stress (RWIS).

In situ co-amorphisation of arginine with indomethacin or furosemide during immersion in an acidic medium - a proof of concept study.

The concept of controlled in situ amorphisation of drug/polymer mixtures has been introduced previously with indomethacin-Eudragit® E and naproxen-Eudragit® E compacts. In the present study, the feasibility of in situ amorphisation of a crystalline API with the low molecular weight coformer arginine was investigated. This research was based on a previous study, which showed that a high relative humidity (75% RH) may induce co-amorphisation of indomethacin with arginine. It was assumed that an in situ co-a...

A new method for estimating time since death by analysis of substances deposited on the surface of dental enamel in a body immersed in seawater.

The present investigation was performed with the objective of developing a method to estimate how long a corpse had been immersed in water after death (the time since death). Accurate determination of the time elapsed since death may lead to identification of the place of drowning, and therefore, serves not only as a piece of information useful for determination of the cause of death but also leads to prompt identification of the body. The results showed that diatoms attached to the surface of dental enamel...
