Effectiveness Study of the BOA(R)-Constricting IV Band

2014-08-27 03:14:34 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to determine whether the BOA(R)-Constricting IV Band is superior to standard methods for starting an IV.


We will test the hypothesis that paramedics and nurses treating in- and out-of-hospital patients with a BOA(R)-Constricting IV Band, compared to paramedics using standard treatment, will have better success rates for peripheral IV access.

Revisiting the Elastic Band Tourniquet in Pediatric Upper Limb Surgery.

Pediatric upper limb surgery requires fine tissue handling in a bloodless surgical field. Standard pneumatic tourniquets are often ineffective in the very young, as they do not fit all limb circumfere...

Electronic structure, elasticity, Debye temperature and anisotropy of cubic WO from first-principles calculation.

The electron structure, elastic constant, Debye temperature and anisotropy of elastic wave velocity for cubic WO are studied using CASTEP based on density functional theory. The optimized structure is...

Combination Therapy Comprising a Static Magnetic Field with Contractility Improves Skin Wounds.

Cutaneous wounds can present significant clinical problems because of abnormal healing after deep dermal damage. Despite technical advances in wound care, there are still unmet needs that result from ...

An enhanced broad-frequency-band apparatus for dynamic measurement of elastic moduli and Poisson's ratio of rock samples.

We built a broad-frequency-band measurement system for rock elastic parameters based on the stress-strain method following Batzle et al., Geophysics 71, N1-N9 (2006). The system gives strain amplitude...

Hyperelastic Tuning of One-Dimensional Phononic Band Gaps Using Directional Stress.

In this paper, we show that acoustoelasticity in hyperelastic materials can be understood using the framework of nonlinear wave mixing, which, when coupled with an induced static stress, leads to a ch...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The act of constricting.

An overuse injury causing lateral knee pain that results from repetitive friction of the iliotibial band over the lateral femoral epicondyle.

Specific regions that are mapped within a GENOME. Genetic loci are usually identified with a shorthand notation that indicates the chromosome number and the position of a specific band along the P or Q arm of the chromosome where they are found. For example the locus 6p21 is found within band 21 of the P-arm of CHROMOSOME 6. Many well known genetic loci are also known by common names that are associated with a genetic function or HEREDITARY DISEASE.

Insertion of a catheter into a peripheral artery, vein, or airway for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes.

A type of CARTILAGE whose matrix contains ELASTIC FIBERS and elastic lamellae, in addition to the normal components of HYALINE CARTILAGE matrix. Elastic cartilage is found in the EXTERNAL EAR; EUSTACHIAN TUBE; EPIGLOTTIS; and LARYNX.
