Recent expansion of biomedical knowledge on the interactions between the
fetus, placenta, and the mother have transformed our view of pregnancy in
general. Recent basic and clinical investigations have improved significantly our
understanding on how hormones affect the pregnancy, and on how pregnancy
affects the fetal and maternal hormones. Because pregnancy may be seen as the
ultimate hormonally mediated event, the topic of endocrinology of pregnancy is
In neurointensive patients with acute lung injury, achieving the goal of lung protection
without threatening cerebral perfusion is very difficult. In patients with more refractory
raised intracranial pressure, the optimal balance between brain and lung may not be well
established. Multiple strategies are used to recruit atelectatic alveoli and improve
oxygenation. Among them incremental levels of PEEP and high intermittent tidal volumes
should require extend brain physiological monitoring.
Medical advances have been occurring at breathtaking speed, with diagnostic and treatment
options becoming available for conditions for which none previously existed. However, several
aspects of health care remain the same. Patients continue to rely heavily on clinicians for help in
understanding the burgeoning evidence in medical research and for providing optimal health
care. Clinicians remain steadfast in their quest to meet the needs of their patients and to encourage
innovation in meeting those needs.
Over a century ago, with the work of Alexander Graham Bell, the motivation underlying
the first use of the telephone in communication had a health-related origin: a
doctor attempted to be in contact with his deaf mother and sister. Early developments
in electronic patient records took place over 40 years ago through the pioneering
work of Ed Hammond and his interest in community and family medicine. Very
soon, the European Union will be celebrating a 20-year history of co-financing
eHealth research and development initiatives.
Sexual dysfunction is one of the most common conditions seen in a
primary care provider’s office. Large surveys indicate that one fourth or
more of patients report sexual distress or dysfunction. Yet the diagnosis is
rarely made, even though most patients who have a sexual problem report
that they wish their physician would ask about it.
Why do physicians not uncover sexual problems? Many physicians state
that they do not know what to do when they uncover a sexual problem.
After the two introductory presentations, participants
receive hands-on training in how to operate (launch on a
computer, troubleshoot, etc.) the UCB particle monitor,
the HOBO CO logger and CO diffusion tubes. During a
field trip to a nearby biomass-using home they place the
instruments in the kitchen, record important sampling
information on a sampling data form and collect basic
information about the kitchen and household. A post-
monitoring questionnaire characterizes important factors
that can affect IAP levels.

Imaging has become such an integral part of clinical care in the assisted reproductive technologies that it is difﬁcult to imagine how in vitro fertilization (IVF) was done before we had the ability to visualize the ovaries and uterus easily.
A new human/rat CRH analogue has been synthesized
using the Fmoc/tBu solid-phase synthetic protocol. The
sequence ofthe new peptide differs from the original in
two positions, 12 and 15, at which the native amino acids
L-phenylalanine 12 and L-leucine 15 have been replaced
by the nonprotein amino acids D-phenylalanine and
a-aminoisobutyric acid (Aib), respectively. The high
resolution three-dimensional solution structure of
[D-Phe12, Aib15]CRH has been determined by 688 dis-tance constraints (656 meaningful NOE and 32 H-bonds
distance limits) and 21 angle constraints. ...
