Prognostic value of resting cardiac power index depends on mean arterial pressure in dilated cardiomyopathy.

ESC Heart Fail 2021 May 27. Epub 2021 May 27.

Department of Cardiology, Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine, 65 Tsurumai-cho, Showa-ku, Nagoya, Aichi, 466-8550, Japan.

Stabilizing Ni-Rich LiNiCoMnO with Cyclopentyl Isocyanate as a Novel Electrolyte Additive.

ACS Appl Mater Interfaces 2021 Mar 5;13(10):12069-12078. Epub 2021 Mar 5.

State Key Laboratory for Physical Chemistry of Solid Surface, College of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Xiamen University, Xiamen 361005, China.

Ni-rich layered structure materials are appealing cathodes for high-energy-density lithium-ion batteries developed for electric vehicles, drones, power tools, etc. However, poor interfacial stability between a Ni-rich cathode and carbonate electrolyte, especially at high temperatures, and fast capacity fading still hinder their mass market penetration. Here, we investigate cyclopentyl isocyanate (CPI) with a single isocyanate (-NCO) functional group as a bifunctional electrolyte additive for the first time to improve the interfacial stability of Ni-rich cathode LiNiCoMnO (NCM83).

Promoting Effects of Au Submonolayer Shells on Structure-Designed Cu-Pd/Ir Nanospheres: Greatly Enhanced Activity and Durability for Alkaline Ethanol Electro-Oxidation.

ACS Appl Mater Interfaces 2020 Jun 26;12(23):25961-25971. Epub 2020 May 26.

Institute of Fuel Cells, Key Laboratory for Power Machinery and Engineering of MOE, School of Mechanical Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai 200240, China.

Rationally engineering the surface physicochemical properties of nanomaterials can improve their activity and durability for various electrocatalytic and energy conversion applications. Cu-Pd/Ir (CPI) nanospheres (NSs) anchored on N-doped porous graphene (NPG) [(CPI NSs/NPG)] have been recently demonstrated as a promising electrocatalyst for the alkaline ethanol oxidation reaction (EOR); to further enhance their electrocatalytic performance, the NPG-supported CPI NSs are coated with Au submonolayer (SML) shells (SMSs), through which their surface physicochemical properties can be tuned. CPI NSs/NPG is prepared by our previously developed method and possesses the special structures of composition-graded CuPd and surface-doped Ir. Read More

ECCM Schemes against Deception Jamming Using OFDM Radar with Low Global PAPR.

Sensors (Basel) 2020 Apr 7;20(7). Epub 2020 Apr 7.

National Demonstration Center for Experimental Electrical and Electronic Education, Yangtze University, Jingzhou 434023, China.

In this paper, a type of effective electronic counter-countermeasures (ECCM) technique for suppressing the high-power deception jamming using an orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) radar is proposed. Concerning the velocity deception jamming, the initial phases of the pulses transmitted in a coherent processing interval (CPI) are designed to minimize the jamming power within a specific range, forming a notch around the jamming in the Doppler spectrum. For the purpose of suppressing the range deception jamming and the joint range-velocity deception jamming, the phase codes of the subcarriers belonging to the OFDM pulses are optimized to minimize the jamming power, distributing some specific bands in the range and the range-velocity domain, respectively.

Non-invasive hemodynamic profiling of patients undergoing hemodialysis - a multicenter observational cohort study.

BMC Nephrol 2019 09 3;20(1):347. Epub 2019 Sep 3.

Sackler School of Medicine, Tel-Aviv University, Ramat-Aviv, Israel.

Background: Intradialytic blood pressure (BP) measurement is currently the main parameter used for monitoring hemodynamics during hemodialysis (HD). Since BP is dependent on cardiac output and total peripheral resistance, knowledge of these parameters throughout the HD treatment would potentially be valuable.

Methods: The use of a novel non-invasive monitoring system for profiling hemodynamic response patterns during HD was explored: a whole-body bio-impedance system was used to assess cardiac index (CI), total peripheral resistance index (TPRI), cardiac power index (CPI) among other parameters in chronic HD patients from 4 medical centers.

Advancing perspectives on health literacy in childhood and youth.

Health Promot Int 2020 Jun;35(3):575-585

Centre for Prevention and Intervention in Childhood and Adolescence (CPI), Bielefeld University, Bielefeld, Germany.

Children and young people's importance as core target population for health literacy has been highlighted throughout the literature due to the relevance of the early life phases for maintaining, restoring and promoting health during the life course. Transferring health literacy concepts to the target population, however, requires proper testing of their applicability and their fit to the developmental phases as well as the target populations' realities and needs. This article aims to discuss children's and young people's health literacy by elaborating and exploring childhood and youth as life phases with unique characteristics from multidisciplinary perspectives.
