Our primary hypothesis is that the Draeger dual-sensor temperature monitoring system, used at the forehead, is sufficiently accurate compared to tympanic, bladder or esophageal temperature for routine clinical use intraoperatively , during post-anesthetic recovery and on the intensive care unit.

The Double Sensor examined in this trial was developed by Dräger Company and is a novel non- invasive device for assessing core body temperature. In a preliminary research investigators h...
This study evaluates the clinical accuracy of the welloStationX, an automated non-touch self-service electronic thermometer using an infrared sensor of the surface of the forehead to scree...
Drugs to treat fever are widely used in children with fever. But there is a controversy about the benefit of reducing fever in children with malaria. Ibuprofen is often used to treat malar...
The purpose of this study is to assess the performance of the subcutaneous glucose sensor over an extended sensor life. The sensor is currently approved for 3 days of use and this study wi...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of Q Fever vaccine, NDBR 105, and collect data on incidence of occupational Q Fever infection in at risk personnel.
An optoelectronic sensor system based on a thermoelectrically cooled (TEC) continuous-wave (CW) double-mode external-cavity diode laser (ECDL) is demonstrated for a multi-gas analysis in this paper. A...
Fever is common in patients with acute brain injury and worsens secondary brain injury and clinical outcomes. Currently, there is a lack of consensus on the definition of fever and its management. The...
A novel molecularly imprinted quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) sensor was successfully prepared for selective determination of sialic acid (SA) in human urine samples. To obtain the QCM sensor, we fi...
Enteric fever predominantly affects children in low- and middle-income countries. This study examines the burden of enteric fever at the 2 pediatric hospitals in Dhaka, Bangladesh and assesses their c...
Typhoid fever caused by Salmonella Typhi remains a major burden worldwide. Gastrointestinal bleeding can be seen in up to 10 percent of patients and may be fatal. The coagulopathy, which may be the dr...
A family of double-stranded DNA viruses containing one genus Asfivirus. It is the source of AFRICAN SWINE FEVER.
A DEAD box RNA helicase that contains two N-terminal CASPASE ACTIVATION AND RECRUITMENT DOMAINS. It functions as a sensor of viral NUCLEIC ACIDS such as DOUBLE-STRANDED RNA and activates the INNATE IMMUNE RESPONSE by inducing the expression of INTERFERON-ALPHA and INTERFERON-BETA. It may also regulate cell growth and APOPTOSIS.
A group of PROTEIN-SERINE-THREONINE KINASES which activate critical signaling cascades in double strand breaks, APOPTOSIS, and GENOTOXIC STRESS such as ionizing ultraviolet A light, thereby acting as a DNA damage sensor. These proteins play a role in a wide range of signaling mechanisms in cell cycle control.
An intermittent fever characterized by intervals of chills, fever, and splenomegaly each of which may last as long as 40 hours. It is caused by BARTONELLA QUINTANA and transmitted by the human louse.
A family of intracellular calcium-sensing proteins found predominately in NEURONS and PHOTORECEPTOR CELLS. They contain EF HAND MOTIFS and undergo conformational changes upon calcium-binding. Neuronal calcium-sensor proteins interact with other regulatory proteins to mediate physiological responses to a change in intracellular calcium concentration.
Anesthesia is the loss of feeling or sensation in all or part of the body. It may result from damage to nerves or can be induced by an anesthetist (a medical professional) using anesthetics such as thiopental or propofol or sevoflurane during a surgical ...
