The present study aims to assess the accuracy of the SpotOn™ Zero-heat-flux-thermometry sensor in measuring core temperature in the paediatric population in the perioperative period.
Diagnosis of vascular involvement in diabetic foot disease remains challenging. Differential diagnosis between pure neuropathic or neuro-ischemic diabetic foot requires a combination of cl...
Compare and assess the accuracy and reliability of the InstaTemp MD® device to techniques presently in use for measuring temperature in infants and children in a Canadian clinical setting...
Foot ulcers remain the most common reason for hospital admission among veterans with diabetes. Healing and preventing these wounds should be a high priority for clinicians treating these h...
Single arm, first-in human feasibility study using the Symphony - MRI guided focused ultrasound system for the treatment of leiomyomas. The study is expected to accrue over 12 months. This...
To compare the accuracy of infrared temporal artery thermometry with axillary thermometry in a cohort of preterm neonates between 28 and 36 weeks postmenstrual age.
We propose a new independent thermometry method, line strength ratio thermometry (LRT), based on optical spectroscopy measurement of linestrength intensity ratio R between pairs of molecular transitio...
Accurate determination of temperature is crucial in the diagnosis of febrile conditions. Although fewer techniques have proven as useful and reliable a predictor of core body temperature as the rectal...
Mn-doped YMgTiOphosphors are synthesized by the traditional solid-state method. Powder X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscope, and energy-dispersive X-ray spectrometer are employed to charact...
The calculation method of relative sensitivity (Sr) for fluorescence intensity ratio (FIR) thermometry is discussed, taking the F33-H63 and H43-H63 transitions of Tm3+ as examples. The value of Sr is ...
Measurement of the temperature of a material, or of the body or an organ by various temperature sensing devices which measure changes in properties of the material that vary with temperature, such as ELASTICITY; MAGNETIC FIELDS; or LUMINESCENCE.
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...
