Once the route was classified, engineers conducted one final recon, if it was needed.
They must ensure that recon elements are organized based on the task or mission.
Almost all of the recon missions involved high-mobility, multipurpose wheeled vehicles (HMMWVs).
We found that soldiers need some basic skills or abilities to be part of a recon team.
Duration of Surgery versus Method of fixation: The average duration of surgery for Recon nail was 75 (+/14.3) min.
Blood loss versus Method of fixation: The average Blood loss during surgery for Recon nail was 150.61 (+/- 28.75) ml and for DHS was 259.94(+/- 55.89) mL.
Length of stay versus Method of fixation: The average length of stay in hospital in days for Recon nail was 3.33 (+/-.758) days and for DHS was 4.3(+/-.837) days.
Union status versus Method of fixation: 29 cases out of 30 patients had fracture union at the end of 9 months in Recon nail and 27 cases out of 30 patients among DHS patients.
Recon 2 allows researchers to use this existing gene expression data and knowledge of the entire metabolic network to figure how certain drugs would affect specific metabolic pathways found to create the conditions for cancerous cell growth, for example.
Recon 2 is already proving its utility, according to Ines Thiele, a professor at the University of Iceland and UC San Diego alumna, who led the Recon 2 effort.
Thiele said Recon 2 has successfully predicted alterations in metabolism that are currently used to diagnose certain inherited metabolic diseases.
The researchers presented Recon 2 in a paper just published online in the journal Nature Biotechnology.
