For subatmospheric intake pressure (throttled) conditions, the efficiency was calculated from the net IMEP (four strokes) in order to capture throttling losses.
The use of subatmospheric pressure dressings, available commercially as the VAC device, has been shown to be an effective way to accelerate healing of various wounds.
Another cooling modality that could be used in team-sports is a cooling glove (CG), which uses cold circulating water (~16[degrees]C, as set by the manufacturer to avoid vasoconstriction) in combination with negative subatmospheric pressure (-40 mmHg) to increase blood flow to the arteriovenous anastomoses underlying the glabrous (non-hairy) palm of the hand, and in turn, cool blood returning to the core (Grahn et al., 2005).
A high velocity flow occurring downstream of the gate causes air entrainment, resulting in subatmospheric air pressure in the conduit.

In general, cave air samples with subatmospheric C[H.sub.4] (< 1.3 ppm and S[sup.13][C.sub.CH4] > -49 [per thousand], approximately) are consistent with more than 60% removal of the deep endogenous component by bacterial oxidation, i.e., 40% of remaining deep endogenous C[H.sub.4].
Elaborating on these two factors, he says: "Backsiphonage conditions exist when there is a negative or subatmospheric pressure in the supply piping, allowing downstream substances to be siphoned into the potable water supply.
