Baroreflex control: central mechanisms

Proceedings of 17th International Conference of the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 1995

This is an intentionally provocative and speculative summary of recent literature on neural control mechanisms in baroreflexes, including computational modeling results and functional hypotheses for further investigation. The focus is on nonlinear neuronal mechanisms and connectivity patterns that may underlie experimental observations and that suggest either place coding of pressure or selective processing for dP/dt rather than P.

  • Classification of hand bones for bone age assessment

    This paper presents a new approach to classifying bones of the hand-wrist images into pediatric stages of maturity using point distribution models (PDM). The method consists of two phases: the training phase and the classification phase. During training, examples of bones from each class are collected so that the allowable shape deformations for each class are learnt. A model representing each class is generated. These models are subsequently used to classify new examples of the bones. During classification all models are compared to the input image and the object is assigned to the class whose model is the closest match. Experimental results obtained using 120 images of the third distal and middle phalanxes showed the usefulness of the method for classifying these bones into their proper stages of maturity.

  • Electromagnetic fields: the jury's still out. 1. Biological effects

    Concerns that electromagnetic (EM) fields may cause cancer and endocrine and nervous system disorders are discussed. The focus is on 60 Hz fields, where the mechanism of interaction probably involves the cell membrane, is nonlinear, and may act by causing some cooperative phenomena among the components of the cell membrane. Two basic epidemiological study designs have been used in work on cancer caused by EM fields. The first, retrospective case-control studies, compare an existing population of cases with a control group without the disease that is selected to be similar in all other characteristics. The second type computes the proportional mortality (or incidence) ratio, which compares the mortality from (or incidence of) disease in the sample population to that in general public. Selected studies that have looked for a link between exposure to power-frequency fields and cancer are summarized. Results have been mixed, but many studies do suggest a connection. One possibility is that EM fields act as a promoter of cancer. Also discussed are studies on birth defects and circadian rhythm, and cell and organ studies. Some experiments suggest that mediation by the cell membrane and/or large proteins that float in it is the mechanism by which fields couple to the cell.<<ETX>>

  • Integration of intermittent clinical data with continuous data from bedside monitors

    Intermittent data from hospital information systems and continuous data from beside monitors are rarely integrated. This integration is crucial to providing physicians with comprehensive views of their patients' clinical state. It also can provide a broader clinical context for intelligent monitoring programs and thereby increase the sensitivity and specificity of their alarms. We describe an implemented application programming interface (API) that provides an abstracted query interface to the hospital's central, relational database and to data extracted from the monitors. The API also provides several data-reduction operators to help manage the large volume of data generated. We describe an electronic flowsheet that was built using the API.<<ETX>>

  • A miniaturized low power personal motion analysis logger utilizing MEMS accelerometers and low power microcontroller

    Portable uniaxial accelerometer units have been widely used to quantify non- exercise activity, but these instruments are not sufficiently sensitive to quantify the physical activity of a given free-living individual. Significant improvements can be made over current systems by utilizing cutting-edge technologies, such as low-power microcontrollers and MEMS accelerometers, to develop power-efficient motion analysis systems with small form factors. A motion tracking system with a very compact form factor would experience greatly expanded use and allow a wider range of activities to be studied. We have built several small devices incorporating either 2-axis or 3-axis MEMS accelerometer, low-power microcontroller, and mini secure digital memory card. Our device has proven to be comparable to the existing motion analysis system at distinguishing subject posture and motion.

  • A Hormone Inspired Multi-Robot Formation Algorithm

    Endocrine system is one of the most important control systems of human body. It cooperates with neural system and immune system to maintain homeostasis of human body. Endocrine system modulates human body by a substance called hormone. It contains substantial information processing algorithms in hormone's working mechanism. Inspired by biological hormone, this paper proposes an algorithm used in formation problem in multi-robot system. This algorithm can help multi-robot system adapt to dynamic environment and form various kinds of shapes. Simulated experiments prove correctness and effectiveness of the algorithm.

  • DNA Strand Breaks and DNA-Protein Crosslinks of Mast Cell Induced by Butyl Benzyl Phthalate

    This experiment was about the effect of Butyl benzyl phthalate on DNA strand breaks and the DNA-protein crosslinks in cells. Mouse mast cells cultured in vitro were exposed to different concentrations of BBP (0, 4, 2&lt;K 100 mumolldrL<sup>-1</sup>) for 1 h. Comet assay and KCl-SDS assay were used to measure the DNA strand breaks and DNA-protein crosslinks. Results showed that, all of the BBP treatment groups (4, 20, 100 mumolldrL<sup>-1</sup>) could cause DNA damage, compared with the control group. But, BBP could induce DNA strand breaks at the lower dose (4 mumolldrL<sup>-1</sup>), and could primarily induce DPC at the middle dose (20 mumolldrL<sup>-1</sup>) and the higher dose (100 mumolldrL<sup>-1</sup>).

  • e-Dietician in General Practice

    Obesity is according to WHO one of the greatest health challenges of our time. The aim of the pilot project was to investigate the weight loss efficacy and the cost of individual dietetic internet-based consultations in a Danish medical centre in combination with an internet community. A total of 46 obese patients in general practice were offered participation in a cohort study during May 15th to December 1st 2008. Patients from three different health centers were included. 32 patients gave informed consent to participate and were given access to weekly e-mail consultations with a dietician and access to an advanced internet community. The weight was objectively decided by inclusion and conclusion of the study. 22 (17 women and 5 men) completed the study. The average age was 41 years, the weight was 103 kg and the BMI was 36.7 kg/m2. After four months (42-168 days) of treatment and averagely 17 consultations the participants accomplished an average weight loss of 6.3 kg, p<0.001. Nine participants accomplished a weight loss of 5-10 kg and four participants accomplished a weight loss of over 10 kg. There was no significant association between weight loss and treatment duration or between weight loss and the amount of consultations (p=0.3). The individual expense to prevention- and e-mail consultations was 1,165 DKK. In comparison the expense of 3 months of conventional treatment with 6-8 visits would be 1,3001,700 DKK. We conclude that weight loss as a result of e-consultations is comparable with conventional weight loss treatments in general practice. The utilization of e-mail consultations can furthermore result in a saving in expenses and premises if the e-mail correspondences are held outside of the health centre.

  • Insulin release at the molecular level: Metabolic-electrophysiological modeling of the pancreatic beta-cells

    The role of pancreatic /spl beta/-cells is fundamental in the control endocrine system, maintaining the blood glucose homeostasis in a physiological regime, via the glucose-induced release of insulin. An increasing amount of detailed experimental evidences at the cellular and molecular biology levels have been collected on the key factors determining the insulin release by the pancreatic /spl beta/-cells. The direct transposition of such experimental data into accurate mathematical descriptions might contribute to considerably clarify the impact of each cellular component on the global glucose metabolism. Under these perspectives, we model and computer-simulate the stimulus-secretion coupling in /spl beta/-cells by describing four interacting cellular subsystems, consisting in the glucose transport and metabolism, the excitable electrophysiological behavior, the dynamics of the intracellular calcium ions, and the exocytosis of granules containing insulin. We explicit the molecular nature of each subsystem, expressing the mutual relationships and the feedbacks that determine the metabolic-electrophysiological behavior of an isolated /spl beta/-cell. Finally, we discuss the simulation results of the behavior of isolated /spl beta/-cells as well as of population of electrically coupled /spl beta/-cells in Langerhans islets, under physiological and pathological conditions, including noninsulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) and hyperinsulinemic hypoglycaemia (PHHI).
