Patient discussion about inductance

Q. can smoking induce acidity on many ocassions i have felt discomfort similar to when i have acidity, but the problem goes away as soon as i stop smoking for a day or two??

A. I would like to add ther is a condition in respiratory medicine called respiratory acidosis,smoking can cause this state,your lungs can cause this state.Im not sure but this may also be one of your problems.--------mrfoot56

Q. Is it possible for exercise induced asthma patient to exercise? After several times I felt I couldn’t breathe after running and swimming, I was diagnosed with Exercise induced asthma. I tried to resume my regular exercise, but after I developed shortness of breath couple of times I stopped again. Should I attempt exercise again? How can I exercise without having another attack of asthma?

A. People can often prevent symptoms by taking medication prior to exercising. The type of medication used depends on several factors. For example, people with hay fever might take an antihistamine tablet before exercise.

For people with asthma, an inhaler can be used before exercise to prevent asthma problems. Your physician can recommend the best medication for you to use before exercise.

If you have dust mite allergy, you may want to exercise outdoors to avoid breathing indoor dust. If you are allergic to grasses and weeds, you may want to exercise in an indoor location during certain seasons.

Exercising should be avoided in areas where there are large amounts of chemicals. For example, you should not exercise outdoors near heavy traffic areas with high levels exhaust fumes from cars and trucks. Indoor areas with irritating odors or fumes, also, should be avoided.

Q. Does fish-oil helps exercise induced asthma? I was diagnosed with exercise induced asthma a couple of year ago, and since then had better and worse times with my asthma, although the treatment I get. I read in a newspaper that fish oil can help exercise induced asthma- is that true? Do I have to eat fish-oil specifically or can I eat fish instead (I really, really, hate fish-oil…)?

A. I take 6, 1000mg softgels/day. It helps my asthma, arthritis and has lowered my closterol. Started with 10 and worked down to 6, which seems to work best, though sometimes I need the extra.

In this regard, it would be convenient to include our previously presented work [25], in which the methods to calculate the inductance of a rectangular loop were analyzed and compared with other calculation techniques and real measures.
The solution helping to improve power loss was to optimize the snubber resistor value and reduce the leakage inductance in the transformer.
Both the (high) drain-source current and (low) gate-charging current flow through the common-source inductance. A change in IDS will induce an opposing voltage VCSI in LCSI, and modify the gate-source voltage VGS seen by the power MOSFET.
When these meander section interconnects conductor patches a capacitive element comes in parallel with the effective inductance.
Second, the leakage inductance of the windings is far smaller than the magnetizing inductance of the iron core when the transformer is not saturated; therefore, [L.sub.[sigma]] can be neglected.
