Entrepreneurism Center at UC San Diego funds commercialization of lung, shock, other devices

...$38,000 Measuring oxygen and carbon dioxide in the depths of the lung so-called alveolar gas typically requires cumbersome equipment that is not portable. Professor West has already constructed a crude proof-of-concept device with only an oxygen analyzer, and it successfully tracked the changes in alveola...

Smart lights, nonstick implants and 100th birthday of electronics at science & technology meeting

...s dictates that by 2010 the pn junctions must have depths of 10 nanometers, or just 40 atoms. The conventional method for making the junctions is called "ion implantation," in which charged versions of a foreign atom ("dopant") are accelerated into a silicon wafer to create electrically active regions...

...missions of binary data simultaneously to multiple depths using this technique (2aSPa3). Philippe Roux of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography ( jit@mpl.ucsd.edu ) will discuss the concept of an "acoustic TV," the underwater transmission of sound waves to simultaneously "light up" multiple pixels in an a...

UCSD professor explains how elephants are able to snorkel

...ndered why elephants can snorkel from considerable depths that would rupture the lungs of other mammals. Now, University of California, San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine pulmonary physiologist John B. West, M.D., Ph.D., has explained the phenomenon. In a presentation today at this year's meeting of the A...

The team also used radar, weather balloons and satellites to determine the Indian Ocean monsoon season has three active periods and three calm periods. The El Nio-like conditions are characterized by an east to west movement of...

University Of Pittsburgh researchers find some over-the- counter medicine may affect scuba divers' performance

...where pressures experienced by divers at different depths can be simulated accurately. While most divers know it is ill-advised to take any kind of medication before a dive, many will take Dramamine® to combat the effects of seasickness or take Sudafed® to ease pressure in the sinus and ears. But, ...

Smokers have lower success rates with periodontal treatment

...ich the goal was to reduceinflammation and probing depths (the amount of space between the teeth andgums), nearly 43 percent of smokers in the study required further periodontaltreatment, while only about 11 percent of nonsmokers did. The study included 35smokers and 35 nonsmokers with periodontal disease. ...
