Anatomical analysis of CT scans from 68 patients with cardiovascular disease found that, despite considerable variations in patient anatomy, placement of a lead between the rib cage
and heart should be feasible with limited interactions with the lungs.
Hence, the results showed the improved efficiency of the diaphragm and abdominal muscles of swimmers to displace coordinately the rib cage
and abdomen when the respiratory system is submitted to higher efforts like maximal breathings, the most used by the swimmers during training.
When assessing breathing patterns, the rib cage
is the largest component.
The tension exerted by the abdominal muscles is transferred to sternum and to the closed-ring of the rib cage
In addition, chest breathing causes the rib cage
to spread and the chest to be pulled upward by the muscles of the neck.
The three-year-old had part of her rib cage
removed and rods put in her back to treat a disabling condition called scoliosis.
But the leaves were contained in a sober series of chicken-wire modules, austere and minimal, and in the middle of the wall hung another human/vegetal fusion, a n arrangement of cast-bronze leaves in the shape of a human rib cage
After examining an X-ray scan of the fossilized dinosaur, Hammer and his team discovered that dirt in the dino's rib cage
contained a fossilized four-chambered heart--an organ found in warm-blooded animals but rarely in reptiles.
Make a fist and place the thumb side of your fist against the victim's abdomen, below the rib cage
and above the navel.
Soon, the vice-grip on the rib cage
relaxes, peristalsis resumes, and the spared prey, empowered in the best Republican sense, is able to stand up on its hind legs and sniff the air for a piece of the action (after all, they're going to need software
the rib cage
opens like an exhibit to reveal a family
With a single click, the heart can be isolated from the rib cage
, facilitating rapid assessment of the overall cardiac anatomy and optimized stent planning.
