Arterial blood pressure, heart rate, Vmca and arterial blood gas and plasma lactate levels were measured every minute for 10 minutes after tourniquet release in all patients, using a Stat Profile Ultima[R] (nOVA Biomedical Co., Boston, MA, USA).
Based on previous studies (2,5), we hypothesised that the maximum increase in Vmca in the propofol group after tourniquet deflation would be 10% lower than in the isoflurane group.
Whole Foods of Nashua donated $3,357 to the VMCA
of Greater Nashua to support the Y's scholarship program for local children.
The accident aircraft was modified by one STC that installed vortex generators (VGs) and by another for more powerful engines, different propellers, winglets and modified engine cowlings, which also increased the airplane's VMCA
. However, the airplane's airspeed indicator remained marked to indicate a lower VMCA
"This is the biggest January in history," said Cliff Wood, executive vice president of the VMCA
The performance and coverage quality is ensured through a Visual Monitoring Coverage Assurance (VMCA
) system developed by BISP Management Information System (MIS) system that monitors universal coverage and performance of the survey teams.
