  • The Change in Resistance of a Carbon Paper

    882 Words  | 4 Pages

    the preliminary experiment was to decide on an appropriate length to keep the paper constant at, and an appropriate shunt for the ammeter. The layout and format is the same as the main experiment (see later). We tested the various ammeter shunts, and decided to use the 10mA shunt, as it gave a reading in the middle of the scale, whereas the other shunts had given readings off or almost off the scale. We also found that 32.5cm was the optimum length for the paper, as it

  • Right To Left Shunt

    processes of digestion and that the right-to-left shunt serves to provide carbon dioxide to gastrointestinal organs besides the stomach, such as the pancreas, spleen, upper small intestine, and liver The bases of Farmer, Uriona, Steenblik, and Stander’s hypothesis was the peculiar ability of amniotes, excluding birds and mammals, to shunt blood past the lungs. Farmer, Uriona, Steenblik, and Stander wanted to explain why birds and mammals do not shunt blood past their lungs like other amniotes, and

  • Intracardiac Shunt Report

    444 Words  | 2 Pages

    The calculation of the intracardiac shunt ratio between the pulmonary and systemic circulation can determine the size of the shunt. The stroke volume in a normal heart is equal across the four cardiac valves, therefore equal on the right and left sides of the heart. However, when an intracardiac shunt is present the stroke volume of one side of the heart exceeds the stroke volume of the other side of the heart. Typically the intracardiac shunts are directed left-to-right due to higher pressures in

  • BT Shunt Procedure

    495 Words  | 2 Pages

    When searching for a topic, this specific story stood out to us: the incredible journey of three surgeons who overcame personal and societal obstacles and created a procedure that gave hope to “blue babies”. The BT Shunt was a surgery, first performed in 1944, that connected the aorta to the pulmonary artery, sending more blood to the lungs to be oxygenated. This topic was a perfect example of breaking barriers and standing up together to create a life-saving solution originally thought to be impossible

  • Managing Paediatric Hydrocephalus : The New Thinking

    2011 Words  | 9 Pages

    Hydrocephalus remains a signifiant challenge to neurosurgeons the world over, in particular the developing world. The mainstay of management remains the insertion of a ventriculo-peritoneal shunt (VPS). This method is expensive and has significant morbidity and mortality. An ideal treatment method would be to maintain a shunt free environment, however at the same time provide adequate and durable cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) diversion in a cost effective manner. We will explore a novel idea that has the potential

  • Reflective Essay On Physical Work

    896 Words  | 4 Pages

    one of the very few that would’ve survived this. At five weeks old, I was diagnosed with a condition known as hydrocephalus. This caused cerebro-spinal fluid to push on my skull. This would’ve resulted in death, but we had a VP shunt inserted to keep me alive. What the VP shunt does is it drains the excess fluid from my brain ventricles down into my abdomen. When I was six months old, I was still unable to even lift my head up on my own, The doctors thought I might not even walk, so they diagnosed me

  • Shunt Capacitor Bank Fundamentals and Protection

    Conference for Protective Relay Engineers - Texas A&M University April 8-10, 2003, College Station (TX) Shunt Capacitor Bank Fundamentals and Protection Gustavo Brunello, M.Eng, P.Eng Dr. Bogdan Kasztenny Craig Wester GE Multilin, Canada GE Multilin, Canada GE Multilin, USA ABSTRACT Shunt capacitor banks are used to improve the quality of the electrical supply and the efficient operation of

  • Hospital For A Scheduled Ventriculoperitoneal Shunt Removal

    1367 Words  | 6 Pages

    ventriculoperitoneal shunt removal. The patient had developed cysts in the brain seventeen years ago in 1998 leading to increased intracranial pressures from accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid. After discovering the brain cysts, the patient underwent a ventriculoperitoneal shunt placement. Two years after the shunt was placed, the patient underwent another procedure for shunt revisions due to complications with infection. Now, the patient is presenting for removal of the shunt. In the pre-op holding

  • Power Quality Enhancement For Real And Reactive Power Coordination Essay

    2119 Words  | 9 Pages

    control for the UPFC is such that the series converter of the UPFC controls the transmission line near the micro grid real/reactive power flow and the shunt converter of the UPFC controls the UPFC bus voltage/shunt reactive power and the DC link capacitor voltage. In steady state, the real power demand of the series converter is supplied by the shunt converter of the UPFC. To avoid instability/loss of DC link capacitor voltage during transient conditions, a new real power coordination controller has

  • Evaluation Of Hyperpigmentation Of Both Eyes At 1 Year Of Age

    ratio and mildly elevated intraocular pressures in each eye. Intraocular pressure was maintained in the mid-teens bilaterally on topical glaucoma monotherapy. At 4 years of age, he relocated. When he was 5-years-old, he underwent bilateral glaucoma shunt placement elsewhere The operative reports and glaucoma drainage implant (GDI) specifics were not obtainable. No prior or subsequent ocular surgeries were performed. He returned to our care after 2 years. His eye pressures were controlled without
