Comparing respiratory polygraphy with pulse transit time analysis versus overnight polysomnography in the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnoea in children.

Sleep Med 2021 May 1;81:457-462. Epub 2021 Mar 1.

FHKAM(Otolaryngology), Department of Otolaryngology, Tuen Mun Hospital, Hong Kong.

Objective: Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome in children is associated with significant morbidity. Polysomnography is the main diagnostic tool but is time consuming and requires skilled manpower to supervise the patient overnight and hence long referral to diagnosis time. However, there are limitations and underestimation of the apnoea hyponea index (AHI) with alternative home sleep apnoea testing (HSAT), such as type 3 respiratory polygraphy (RP). Read More

Mechanosensitive Vaginal Epithelial Adenosine Triphosphate Release and Pannexin 1 Channels in Healthy, in Type 1 Diabetic, and in Surgically Castrated Female Mice.

J Sex Med 2020 05 31;17(5):870-880. Epub 2020 Mar 31.

Department of Urology, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY, USA; Dominick P. Purpura Department of Neuroscience, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Distension of hollow organs is known to release adenosine triphosphate (ATP) from the lining epithelium, which triggers local responses and activates sensory nerves to convey information to the central nervous system. However, little is known regarding participation of ATP and mediators of ATP release, such as Pannexin 1 (Panx1) channels, in mechanisms of vaginal mechanosensory transduction and of changes imposed by diabetes and menopause, conditions associated with vaginal dysfunction and risk for impaired genital arousal.

Aim: To investigate if intravaginal mechanical stimulation triggers vaginal ATP release and if (a) this response involves Panx1 channels and (b) this response is altered in animal models of diabetes and menopause. Read More

Assessment of the Potential of Wrist-Worn Wearable Sensors for Driver Drowsiness Detection.

Sensors (Basel) 2020 Feb 14;20(4). Epub 2020 Feb 14.

Faculty of Computer Science, Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt (THI), 85049 Ingolstadt, Germany.

Drowsy driving imposes a high safety risk. Current systems often use driving behavior parameters for driver drowsiness detection. The continuous driving automation reduces the availability of these parameters, therefore reducing the scope of such methods. Read More

Melatonin modulates tonic immobility and vigilance behavioural responses of broiler chickens to lighting regimens during the hot-dry season.

Physiol Behav 2016 10 30;165:195-201. Epub 2016 Jul 30.

Department of Anatomy, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Nigeria. Electronic address:

Experiments were conducted with the aim of determining the influence of melatonin administration on vigilance and tonic immobility (TI) responses of Marshall broiler chickens. The broiler chickens were reared on different lighting regimens and subjected to heat stress during the hot-dry season. Simple random sampling was used to assign 300 broiler chicks into three groups, comprising 100 broiler chicks each. Read More

Effects of disfluencies, predictability, and utterance position on word form variation in English conversation.

J Acoust Soc Am 2003 Feb;113(2):1001-24

Department of Linguistics, University of Colorado, Boulder, Colorado 80309-0925, USA.

Function words, especially frequently occurring ones such as (the, that, and, and of), vary widely in pronunciation. Understanding this variation is essential both for cognitive modeling of lexical production and for computer speech recognition and synthesis. This study investigates which factors affect the forms of function words, especially whether they have a fuller pronunciation (e. Read More

Impact of climate on thermal rhythm in pastoral sheep.

Physiol Behav 2001 Nov-Dec;74(4-5):659-64

Bioengineering Technologies, Technology Development Group, HortResearch, Private Bag 3123, Hamilton, New Zealand.

The effects of environmental conditions on temperature rhythms were investigated in ewe lambs at pasture. Two groups of 20 lambs had heart rate (HR), vaginal temperature (T(v)), ear-canal temperature (T(c)) and ear-pinna temperature (T(p)) monitored continuously for 3 days. Climatic conditions were recorded at the same time and Temperature Humidity Index (THI) calculated. Read More

[Annual changes of THI (Todai Health Index) scores of workers in a large-sized enterprise].

J UOEH 1989 Dec;11(4):403-10

Department of Radiation Biology and Health, School of Medicine, University of Occupational and Environmental Health, Kitakyushu, Japan.

To develop a well controlled working environment including a mental health supporting system, it is important to survey the health status of workers. The authors analyzed results of the Todai Health Index (THI), which was administered to employees of a large-sized enterprise in Osaka in 1984, 1986, and 1987. The results were as follows: 1) Female workers had more complaints of "eye and skin", "many subjective symptoms", "mental instability", and "psychosomatic disorder" than males. Read More
