The visual continua in the spectra of three nebulae photographed with a narrow slit are not produced by the blending of atomic emission lines but must have a physical origin. Several strong He I emission lines just beyond the Balmer limit may tend to vitiate measurements of the intensity distribution in the Balmer continuum on plates taken with a wide slit. [less ▲]

This paper deals with the simulation of two extrusion tests by thixoforming: a non stationary extrusion test and a double-cup extrusion test. The simulations are based on a thermo-mechanical one-phase constitutive law that has been presented in details in several previous papers. A campaign of experimental extrusion testing has been conducted on a steel alloy and the comparison between the numerical and experimental results will validate the model under study. A new feature that has been added to the model is also discussed: the introduction of the phase change thermal effects such as the fusion latent heat and the contraction of the material [less ▲]

Bottom friction modelling is an important step in river flows computation with 1D or 2D solvers. It is usually performed using empirical laws established for uniform flow conditions or a modern approach based on turbulence analysis. Following the definition of the flow validity field of the main friction laws proposed in the literature, an original continuous formulation has been developed. It is suited to model river flows with a wide range of properties (water depth, discharge, roughness…). The efficiency of this new formulation, theoretically established and numerically adjusted, is demonstrated through various practical applications. [less ▲]

Achieving adequate glucose control in critically ill patients is a complex but important part of optimal patient management. Until relatively recently, intermittent measurements of blood glucose have been the only means of monitoring blood glucose levels. With growing interest in the possible beneficial effects of continuous over intermittent monitoring and the development of several continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems, a round table conference was convened to discuss and, where possible, reach consensus on the various aspects related to glucose monitoring and management using these systems. In this report, we discuss the advantages and limitations of the different types of devices available, the potential advantages of continuous over intermittent testing, the relative importance of trend and point accuracy, the standards necessary for reporting results in clinical trials and for recognition by official bodies, and the changes that may be needed in current glucose management protocols as a result of a move towards increased use of CGM. We close with a list of the research priorities in this field, which will be necessary if CGM is to become a routine part of daily practice in the management of critically ill patients. [less ▲]

Aim To explore the occurrence and the distribution of glucose excursions > 7.8 mmol/l by continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) in non-diabetic patients admitted with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Methods Twenty-one non-diabetic patients without baseline hyperglycaemia admitted for ACS wore a continuous glucose monitoring system (CGMS) for a median period of 45.6 h. Occurrence and 24-h distribution of time spent with blood glucose > 7.8 mmol/l (TS > 7.8) were retrospectively investigated. Results CGMS data disclosed time spent > 7.8 in 17 patients, whereas only seven of them showed at least one capillary blood glucose test value above the threshold for the same time period. Glucose excursions were detectable earlier from CGMS data. Hyperglycaemia was detected most frequently in the morning, more than 2 h after breakfast. Conclusions CGM discloses early and frequent hyperglycaemia in non-diabetic patients with ACS. Intensive glucose monitoring during the morning time period is the most efficient in screening for hyperglycaemia and could be a valuable guide to initiating insulin therapy and to further investigate outcomes in ACS.

AIM: This study aimed to assess the effectiveness of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) for glucose control in type 1 diabetic patients treated by continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) and presenting with frequent hypoglycaemic episodes. METHODS: Thirteen patients with type 1 diabetes (diabetes duration: 25+/-15 years; CSII duration: 5.5+/-7.0 years), with more than six recorded capillary blood glucose (CBG) values <60 mg/dL, according to their metres for the past 14 days, were offered the permanent use of a CGM device (Guardian RT((R)), Medtronic) plus ongoing self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) for 12 weeks, followed by a 12-week crossover period of SMBG only, or vice versa. Glucose control, determined by recorded 14-day CBG values <60 mg/dL and HbA(1c) levels, and quality of life according to the Diabetes Quality of Life (DQOL) questionnaire, were assessed at baseline, and after 12- and 24-week follow-ups. RESULTS: Four patients withdrew from the study during the first period (of whom three were using CGM). In the nine study completers, the number of low CBG values decreased significantly from 13.9+/-9.2 to 7.6+/-6.8 (P=0.011) when patients used CGM, in either the initial or final trial period, while a decrease in HbA(1c) from 8.3+/-0.7 to 7.7+/-0.6% (P=0.049) was also observed, in contrast to the absence of any significant differences during the SMBG-only period. DQOL scores were also essentially unaffected. CONCLUSION: This pilot observational study supports the hypothesis that CGM use can significantly improve overall glucose control while reducing hypoglycaemic episodes in hypoglycaemia-prone type 1 diabetic patients treated by CSII.

Monitoring cerebral oxygen availability and utilization is of the utmost importance for patients with brain insults or potentially at risk of brain oxygen deprivation. The availability of the continuous measurement of oxygen saturation in the jugular bulb questions the value of this parameter as an indicator of brain oxygenation. This article reviews the theoretical background and the practical aspects of this monitoring. It describes its possible applications to neurosurgical patients in the operating theater as well as in the intensive therapy unit. Finally, it comments on its main limitations which could impede an extensive utilization in clinical practice. [less ▲]

A study in experimental slatted-system fattening pig units was conducted with the aim of estimating the odour emission factor (in ou/s.pig), which can subsequently be used in dispersion models to assess the odour annoyance zone. Dynamic olfactometry measurements carried out at different development stages of pigs showed a logical trend of the mean predicted odour emission factor with the pig weight. However, the variation within the same weight class was much larger than variation between classes. Possible causes of such variation were identified as the evolution of ventilation rate during the day and the circadian rhythm of pig. To be able to monitor continuously the daily variation of the odour, an electronic nose was used with suitable regression model calibrated against olfactometric measurements. After appropriate validation check, the electronic nose proved to be convenient, as a complementary tool to dynamic olfactometry, to record the daily variation of the odour emission factor in the pig barn. It was demonstrated that, in the controlled conditions of the experimental pens, the daily variation of the odour emission rate could be mainly attributed to the sole influence of the circadian rhythm of pig. As a consequence, determining a representative odour emission factor in a real case cannot be based on a snapshot odour sampling. [less ▲]

Polylactides (PLA), biodegradable aliphatic polyesters, produced from renewable resources might substitute petrochemically based polymers in a broad range of applications in the near future, if we manage to produce them at lower cost and higher efficiency than nowadays. Possible applications include food packaging for meat and soft drinks, films for agro-industry and non-wovens in hygienic products. The authors developed, based on a new catalytic system, a reactive extrusion polymerisation process, which can be used to produce PLA continuously in larger quantities and at lower costs than before. This extrusion polymerisation process has been developed and tested with laboratory scale machines and has to be transferred to industrial processing equipment. This paper aims to address the problems attached with this transfer and to discuss the chances to finally achieve low cost PLA at industrial scale. [less ▲]
