Controlled attenuation parameter could be a useful tool in the clinical management of patients with chronic viral hepatitis for detecting liver steatosis.
Treatise on Geomorphology
This chapter focuses on describing soils (sites and profiles) in the field, working from a geomorphic perspective. Topics considered include placing soils in the landscape, selecting sites for description, accessing soil profiles, describing sites and profiles, field testing that can be done, and soil sampling for laboratory analysis. Aspects such ...
Depression and stress are related pathologies extensively studied in humans. However, this relationship is not well known in animals kept in zoos and even less known in wild animals. In zoo animals, acute and chronic stress caused by difficulties in coping with stressors such as public presence and noise, among others, can induce the appearance of ...

A Windkessel model has been constructed with the aim of investigating the respiratory-volume dependence of the photoplethysmographic (PPG) signal. Experimental studies show a correlation between respiratory volume and the peak-to-peak value of the respiratory-induced intensity variations (RIIV) in the PPG signal. The model compartments are organise...
