So, Pastor and associates might have felt self-righteous enough to go tell it on a mountain about their upstroke of 0.1 percent.
The surprising lack of building, along with expanding mortgage debt, has helped sustain strong year-over-year real home price appreciation well into the upstroke of this housing cycle.
Numerical analyses have proved that the bypass flow tends to significantly reduce the time required to slow down the needle during its upstroke and the subsequent time required to cover the needle downstroke.
Activation times were determined as the time at 50% between peak and baseline amplitude and rise times (TRise) as the time from 10-90% of the upstroke. APD at 80% repolarization ([APD.sub.80]) was calculated as repolarization time--activation time.
Broken down into its most basic form, there's one principle to calligraphy--thick downstroke and thin upstroke. I have neat handwriting and a steady hand.
Hummingbirds and bats accomplish this feat by twisting their wings backward on the upstroke, continuously pushing air downward to keep them steadily aloft.
However, it is noteworthy that although the efficiency of differentiation protocols has undergone a multifold increase over recent years as a result of culture condition optimization, this has not been paralleled by improvements in maturation of the electrophysiological properties of iPSC-CMs: resting membrane potential is depolarized, and upstroke velocity and ion channel expression remain low in comparison with adult cardiomyocytes.[38],[41] Most of these differentiation protocols result in mixed populations of ventricular-, atrial-, and nodal-like subtypes, with ventricular CMs being the most represented.
Compatible with this, the patient had very rigid and saturated carotid arteries upon palpation, and a Doppler ultrasound examination showed that there were normal speeds but abnormal waveforms, with delay of the systolic upstroke indicating distal resistance with compromised cerebral perfusion secondary to ICH.
The parameters extracted were as follows: hardness (maximum force of the first compression), springiness (distance of the detected height during the second compression divided by the original compression distance; distance 2/distance 1), cohesiveness (area of work during the second compression divided by the area of work during the first compression; area 2/area 1), chewiness (hardness x cohesiveness x springiness), and resilience (calculated by dividing the upstroke energy of the first compression by the downstroke energy of the first compression; area 4/area 3).
[15] extracted four features of PPG signals to find an optimal feature for BP estimation: width of 2/3 pulse amplitude, width of 1/2 pulse amplitude, systolic upstroke time, and diastolic time.
It also reduced maximum rate of rise of action potential upstroke, prolonged P wave duration such that sodium channel current ([I.sub.Na]) dependent parameters were depressed, and prevented induction of persistent AF in 100% of preparations tested [3].
At 20 months postprocedure, duplex US examination demonstrated a patent left renal artery with brisk upstroke and normal parenchymal resistive indices (Fig.
