Although some authors have written about the adverse affects of running on he...Family & Preventive Medicine
234 Studies on fate maps and states of determination of embryonic cells in Xenopus laevis.Xu, WeilongThe question of which embryonic structures arise from particular regions of the early embryo is central to a better understanding of normal development. Marking undifferentiated cells with a dye that can later be recognized is one way of examining this question. Such fate maps have traditionally bee...Neurobiology & Anatomy
235 Comparison of selected direct reading instruments used for sampling fumigants in the grain handling industry.Alexander, Gary JamesThe Miran 1A Portable Gas Analyzer, the H-Nu Photoinization Analyzer, Gastec No. 134 Detector Tubes, and Drager No.5/a Detector Tubes have been evaluated in the laboratory for use as sampling instruments to detect carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) and carbon disulfide (CS2) in the grain handling industry....Family & Preventive Medicine
236 A Systems approach to mild essential hypertension: educational lifestyle adjustments versus biobehavioral techniques.Okawa, Jean NakamuraTwo nonpharmacological interventions--education for lifestyle adjustments and biobehavioral techniques--were tested on medicated and nonmedicated patients with mild essential hypertension. Blood pressure reductions and relationships between blood pressure responses and concomitant variables (changes...Nursing
237 The development of a parenteral admixture program in a pediatric hospital.Pearce, Daniel Milton.This endeavor describes the development of a parenteral admixture program in a 175-bed pediatric acute care hospital. It begins with a description of the advantage to the hospital of a parenteral admixture program as compared to conventional floor stock systems. Some examples of other admixture pr...Pharmaceutics & Pharmaceutical Chemistry
238 A new standard method for determination of oxygen content.Yen, Ming-Cheng.A modified polarographic method for measuring oxygen content in whole blood, which has first principle measurement status equal to that of the Van Slyke manometric method, is described. First principle measurement status is achieved by an oxygen sensor nulling technique which eliminates the influenc...Biomedical Informatics
239 A survey of the clinical pharmacy services provided in medium-size hospitals in the United States.Phillips, Jeffrey Owen.Pharmacists have provided clinical pharmacy services in hospitals for at least 20 years.
