BACKGROUND: Significant safety concerns remain surrounding the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) following gastrointestinal surgery, leading to wide variation in their use. This study aimed to determine the safety profile of NSAIDs after major gastrointestinal surgery. METHODS: Consecutive patients undergoing elective or emergen...

Background: There is currently conflicting evidence surrounding the effects of obesity on postoperative outcomes. Previous studies have found obesity to be associated with adverse events, but others have found no association. The aim of this study was to determine whether increasing body mass index (BMI) is an independent risk factor for developme...
Article
Metabolic syndrome can be defined as a set of symptoms, associated with a risk of coronary artery disease, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, hyperglycemia and obesity. Eugenol is a phenolic compound and major constituent of essential oils extracted from different parts of Tulsi plant. Its therapeutic use has been established on the basis of several pha...
Article
Hypoglycemic effect of camel milk supplementation in experimental rat model and significant reduction in doses of insulin in type 1 diabetic patients have been observed in our previous studies. This long-term study was undertaken to assess the efficacy, safety and acceptability of camel milk as an adjunct to insulin therapy in type 1 diabetics. In...
Article
It has been suggested Haemophilus influenzae serotype b (Hib) disease is uncommon in Asia. During 1993-1997, we conducted prospective surveillance of acute infections caused by H. influenzae in 6 academic referral Indian hospitals. The study included 5798 patients aged 1 month to 50 years who had diseases likely to be caused by H. influenzae; 75% o...
Conference Paper
Objective, To determine the frequency, clinical characteristics and outcome of acute invasive infections caused by Haemophilus influenzae. Design. Prospective hospital-based surveillance. Setting. Six large academic referral hospitals in India. Participants. Three thousand four hundred forty-one patients from infancy to adulthood with pneumonia, me...
Article
A discrete time-domain model for the LCC-type parallel resonant converter, operating in discontinuous current mode (DCM), is derived. This model, which makes use of some practical approximations, simplifies the calculations, reduces the computer simulation time and is adequate to predict some of the basic design constraints (peak component stresses...
Article
Out of 66 clinical isolates of Klebsiella pneumoniae, 17 showed resistance or decreased susceptibility to third generation cephalosporins (17 to cefotaxime, 16 to ceftriaxone, and 9 to ceftazidime) while the remaining 49 were sensitive by the disc diffusion method. The minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of the third generation cephalosporins...
Article
A total of 14 invasive H. influenzae were isolated from 12 patients by culturing 621 samples of body fluids over a span of one year. Twelve non-replicate isolates were analyzed for their drug susceptibility and serotype distribution. Eight (66.7%) isolates were multiply drug resistant with resistance to ampicillin, chloramphenicol and cotrimoxazole...
Article
We evaluated flunarizine as add-on therapy for control of refractory epilepsy in an open trial in 17 patients. Children received 10 mg/day and adults received 20 mg/day of flunarizine for 6 months. In eight patients, antiepileptic drug (AED) serum levels at baseline and at 3 months of flunarizine therapy were available. Six of the 17 patients had s...
Article
Discrete state-space modeling of the LCC-type parallel resonant power converter is presented. Using these large signal equations, small signal modeling of the power converter is obtained. Multiple loops have been used for the closed loop operation. State variable feedback control has been integrated with the linear small signal state-space model an...
Article
A discrete time domain model for the LCC-type parallel resonant power converter has been derived. This model has been used to predict the large signal behavior of the power converter. The peak component stresses and the dynamic response of the key state variables, as obtained from the large signal analysis, using PRO-MATLAB software are plotted. SP...
Conference Paper
A small signal equivalent circuit model is obtained for the LCC-type parallel resonant converter in the form of a two port hybrid parameter model. This model is used to study the small signal behavior of the converter. Dynamic performance parameters like the control to output transfer function, audio-susceptibility, output impedance and input admit...
Article
We compared the conventional culture method with the coagglutination (CoA) test for detecting V. cholerae 0139 antigen in a 4 h faecal enrichment culture. The CoA test reacted positively in all 13 culture positive stool specimens from patients with clinical cholera and negatively in all 23 culture negative specimens from non-diarrhoeal healthy cont...
Article
In Nagpur (Maharashtra) during the period 1991-93, Vibrio cholerae serogroup 01 predominated in 1991 (94.7%) and 1992 (86.4%) but significantly declined in 1993 (10.7%). Serogroups 02-0138 were infrequently encountered. A new strain V. cholerae serogroup 0139 emerged in 1993 and accounted for 89.3 per cent of the total vibrios isolated in the year....
Conference Paper
A discrete time domain model for the LCC-type parallel resonant power converter, operating in discontinuous current mode (DCM) has been derived. All the equations representing the discrete time domain model are given. This model, which makes use of some practical approximations, simplifies the calculations, reduces the computer simulation time and...
Conference Paper
The various operating modes of a transistorized series-parallel resonant power converter, including multiple conduction modes, are identified. A compact classification of these modes is presented. Two of the predominant modes, with four and two intervals, respectively, are analyzed, and the converter gain for those modes is analytically obtained. T...
Conference Paper
Various operating modes of the series-parallel resonant converter operating over a wide range of switching frequencies have been identified by using computer simulation. The authors give an example of the converter design and the circuit model that was used for SPICE3 simulation. The simulation results obtained and the operating modes which were id...
Article
S. typhi was isolated from 241 patients of pyrexia between July 1990 and March 1991. Multiple drug resistance was observed in 220 (91.3%) strains, the commonest pattern of drug resistance being ACCoT (49.4%). Predominance of phage type E1 in 196 (81.3%) strains and biotype I in 225 (93.4%) strains was observed. All ACCoT strains belonged to phage t...

This is a report of a study to evaluate quantitatively the effect of different mordants on the hue of turmeric on wool and silk.
Article
An analysis of the naturally-occurring quinones, henna and dolu (or Indian rhubarb) is presented. The origins of the use of these substances as dyes are traced, and the results obtained on wool and silk with various mordants are set out.
Article
Forty patients participated in a randomized controlled trial of complete bed rest versus ambulation as desired in the management of proteinuric hypertension during pregnancy. Daily increases in serum human placental lactogen and oestriol concentrations were greater in the rested group. An especially 'at risk' group of 10 patients with both hyperuri...
Article
Twenty-five patients received 10 ml co-trimoxazole (800 mg sulphamethoxazole and 160 mg trimethoprim) and 25 a placebo by intravenous infusion during one hour from the commencement of surgery for vaginal hysterectomy with anterior colporrhaphy and posterior colpo-perineorrhaphy. Single-dose chemoprophylaxis with co-trimoxazole was shown to be effec...

One hundred patients took part in a randomized controlled trial to test the efficacy of three 1 g doses of cephaloridine in preventing infection after abdominal hysterectomy. The first dose was given as an intravenous bolus at the commencement of surgery and the second and third as intramuscular injections 6 and 12 hours later. Given in this way, c...
