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.

This feasibility study investigates if frail elderly and hospitalized patients are able to perform unsupervised elastic band exercises as a supplement to their usual supervised physiothera...
Abnormal body composition with increased body fat mass and decreased lean body mass has been found in adults with Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS), contributing to reduced physical capacity and...
The primary objectives of this study are to evaluate the performance of StatSeal Advanced used in conjunction with the TR Band (SSA) as compared to the TR Band without SSA (TRB) relative t...
Hypothesis: 1. Tissue and salivary pepsin will resolve after 12 weeks use of Reza band, but not following standard of care alone. 2. RFS, RSI and inflammatory cytokines (I...
Subjects' radial artery diameters and plethsmography waveforms will be recorded by MRI and pulse oxymetry at varying levels of radial artery compression by the Terumo TR Band.
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...
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 ...
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...
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...
Snapping of the iliotibial band over the greater trochanter should be eliminated by reducing tension via lengthening, release, and incision of the iliotibial band.
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.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
