    Good facilitators engage their students, inspiring in them a desire to internalize what they are learning. It starts by being a good communicator in the classroom. The verbal skills he/she must acquire are numerous and may seem daunting. This chapter discusses sub‐skills required to be a good verbal communicator into some areas. The skills are divided into decorative speaking, and declarative speaking. The first group of skills have nothing to do with what is actually stated, but everything to do with how it is received by the listener. These are skills not restricted to speakers. The second set applies to what is actually stated and is most challenging for those who must improvise or teach in a setting where instructors do not have the opportunity or desire to rehearse every word or memorize the speech.

  • EGG measurement under various situations

    As a result of an experiment directly guided from the gastric membrane side or gastric tunica serosa ventriculi side, electric activity of the stomach is generated at 3 cycle per minutes (3cpm) from the pacemaker near the greater curvature of stomach side in the stomach upper part 1/3, and its spread to the pylorus side is confirmed. This is called electrical control activity (ECA) or slow wave. However, in general clinical use, it is very difficult to record the electric activity from a gastric membrane side or gastric tunica serosa ventriculi, and the clinical application is restricted. On the other hand the method of recording electric activity of the stomach accompanied by stomach movement from the abdominal walls is called electrogastrography (EGG), and we can record it now comparatively easily because of the progress of technology in recent years. Thus, we performed EGG measurement under various situations (food, physical stress and mental stress loads). Consequently, we discovered whether stress has a certain influence on the stomach activities.

  • Automatic removal of extracardiac hotspots in technetium-99m myocardial perfusion SPECT

    In Technitium-99m myocardial perfusion SPECT (MPS) tomograms, there is usually a substantial radioactive tracer uptake in the abdominal organs, especially the liver, bowel and stomach. This extracardiac activity frequently emerges as areas of intense brightness or hotspots, which hamper efforts in automatic MPS quantification. Though it would be favourable to remove the hotspots, their multitudinous appearance and proximity to the heart have made them difficult to be removed. In this paper, we propose an image processing technique to automatically remove the hotspots. Our technique uses the morphological watershed segmentation to delineate the hotspots before they are iteratively removed. The proposed technique has been applied on clinical MPS tomograms in which it has completely removed the hotspots in 90% of the test data. In addition, it has also shown to increase the success rate of an automatic left ventricle detection scheme to 100%.

  • A wearable RFID sensor and effects of human body proximity

    Wearable electronics integrate smart sensors and compact computing systems into garments. In this paper, we discuss the design and simulation of a knitted textile RFID sensor for wearable applications. The sensor comprises a textile folded dipole antenna, specifically designed for use with an inductively-coupled RFID microchip at 870 MHz. As opposed to conventional microchips, in this case the device does not need any physical soldering, making it very convenient for wearable applications. The numerical analysis was extended to evaluate the loading effects of human body proximity. For distances greater than 10 mm, the antenna maintains good impedance matching and a broadside radiation with moderate gain.

    Electrical determination of E.coli O157:H7 was investigated by antibody- modified individual SnO2 nanowire (TONW) coupled with microfluidic chip. The static responses to E.coli and S.typhimurium on new device were studied. The responses to E.coli on the device that contained an unmodified or a modified TONW under continuous injection were also compared. Finally, an alternative mechanism to explain the observed behavior was proposed

  • Automatic extraction of stomach contour from barium filled X-ray image

    A method of stomach extraction is proposed. The stomach contour is automatically and accurately extracted by the characteristics of the X-ray stomach image. First, the approximate region of stomach is obtained by the combination image which is constructed from binary of the original image and its differential image. Secondly, the stomach contour is extracted by the brightness of the differential image and the shape which is the approximate region of stomach. Thus, the stomach contour is accurately extracted. Lastly, this method was applied for many samples of X-ray images, and was proved to be effective.

  • Wavelet Decomposition for the Analysis of Esophageal Manometric Data in the Study of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

    Wavelet decomposition is gaining attention as a novel signal processing tool for analyzing nonlinear time-series. Compared to traditional Fourier transform, wavelet transform better represents functions exhibiting discontinuities and sudden changes. As such, wavelet-based techniques are strong candidates for the analysis of bio-signals (e.g. gastric and esophageal signals), in which, sudden changes and sharp peaks are likely. For the first time, this paper applies wavelet decomposition to the analysis of esophageal manometric data, which is critical in the diagnosis of gastroesophageal reflux disease. Simulation results of wavelet decomposition are compared with those of a recent approach based on empirical mode decomposition. Such comparison shows that wavelet decomposition leads to better results in terms of number of decomposition coefficients (15 versus 17), CPU-time (0.5 s versus 75 s), and signal-to-background ratio (0.97 versus 0.85).

  • Ultrasound B-mode 360/spl deg/ tomography in mice

    Cross sectional B-mode images were acquired from dead mice at projections through 360/spl deg/. The image set was rotated about the isocentre and a set of aligned images produced. These were averaged to form a compound image. The compound images show a dramatic improvement in image quality over individual B-mode images; with much reduced speckle (2% compared with 18% in the B-mode image), and reduction in artefacts. Organs such as kidney and stomach are visible, along with skeletal anatomy. This demonstrates that the mouse skeleton does not have the same deleterious effect on the ultrasound beam as that of the human skeleton. This is probably due to the closer matching to soft tissue of acoustic properties of the cartilaginous skeleton of mice, as opposed to the high mismatch of the heavily calcified human skeleton. B-mode 360/spl deg/ compound imaging may he of interest as the basis for a new 3D technique providing high quality ultrasound images which are much less dependent on operator skill than is the case for real time B-mode ultrasound. A further development worth pursuing is tomographic reconstruction from projections.

  • IoT Based Wearable Knitted Fabric Respiratory Monitoring System

    Monitoring of respiratory signal is essential to diagnose health problems. However, the procedure involved is too intrusive and causes discomfort to the patients. This paper elaborates the development of an IoT based wearable sensor to monitor the real-time respiratory signal. A textile based pressure fabric is attached to a belt converting the thoracic/stomach movement into electrical signal. The electrical signal is transmitted to a central base station where it is displayed in real time and is finally uploaded to an online repository for future analysis. Respiratory signals were studied as individuals performed activities like walking and talking.
