(2) Stool consistency was assessed with the use of the 7-point Bristol Stool Form Scale (BSFS
): 1 indicating separate, hard lumps, like nuts (hard to pass); 2 sausage-shaped but lumpy; 3 like a sausage but with cracks on the surface; 4 like a sausage or snake, smooth, and soft; 5 soft blobs with clear-cut edges (passed easily); 6 fluffy pieces with ragged edges or a mushy stool; and 7 watery, not solid pieces (entirely liquid).
The lossless TL model is adopted to design the BSFs
Since the contributions of these features are different, we proposed BSFS
algorithm based on RF-variable importance to select the optimal feature set.
Mean [+ or -] SE scores of BSFS
were 3.9 [+ or -] 0.1, 3.8 [+ or -] 0.2, 3.6 [+ or -] 0.1, and 3.8 [+ or -] 0.1 during baseline, calcium carbonate, calcium phosphate, and washout periods, respectively.
Rawalpindi -- Five people were killed and dozens others injured as Indias Border Security Force (BSF
) resorted to unprovoked firing along the Working Boundary near Sialkot on Thursday.
Amongst the available bandstop filters manufacturing technologies, the Microstrip line bandstop filters (BSFs
) are indeed more attractive in modern wireless communication systems due to their low cost and ease of integration with other radio frequency/microwave circuits.
There is an increasing demand for multiband bandstop filters (BSFs
) in the rapidly growing modern multifunctional communication systems such as WiMax, Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), and mobile communication system.
Table 2 shows the comparison of the proposed filter with other reported wideband BSFs
Bandstop Filters (BSFs
) are used to suppress the noise and useless signal.
Subjects met Rome II criteria for chronic constipation, including fewer than three complete spontaneous bowel movements (CSBMs) per week, six or fewer spontaneous bowel movements per week (SBMs), or one or fewer SBMs on the Bristol Stool Form Scale (BSFS
