bladder contractions probably occurred during ongoing urgency to void, while bladder volume remained constant.
The authors observed that acute cigarette smoking caused a shift of mitral blood flow from early to late diastole and a prolongation of isovolumetric
relaxation; they thereby concluded that cigarette smoking, by affecting LV filling and isovolumetric
relaxation, significantly impaired LV diastolic function independently of its role as a risk factor for coronary atherosclerosis.
Diastolic dysfunction was defined as mitral E/A ratio less than 1 and isovolumetric
relaxation time [greater than or equal to] 110 msec or mitral E-wave deceleration time [greater than or equal to] 240 msec on Doppler echocardiography.
The peak early (E) and late (A) diastolic mitral inflow velocities, deceleration time E, E/A ratio and isovolumetric
relaxation time were measured and averaged over 3 cardiac cycles according to the recommendations of the American Society of Echocardiography (30).
Deflation of the balloon occurs at the end of isovolumetric
contraction (just before opening of the aortic valve) and is maintained the onset of diastole.
Preservation of parent rock fabric in saprolite due to in situ isovolumetric
weathering (Nahon 1991) may be responsible for the higher values of dry and wet strength.
The characteristics of the different transvalvular flows and normal values for the lefi ventricle isovolumetric
relaxation time (IVRT), the peak velocity (Vp) and ventricular ejection time (Tey) for the sigmoid valves flow, were also established.
relaxation time and tissue Doppler e' (early diastolic tissue velocity) fell while the ratio of mitral inflow velocity E to e' rose with increasing BMI, suggesting depressed myocardial relaxation properties and increased left ventricular filling pressures.
O'Beirne-Ryan and Zentilli (2003) pointed out that many of these horizons no longer exhibit isovolumetric
weathering and therefore are no longer "saprolites" senso stricto.
When protein is provided as a 50-g dose in the form of a beverage and compared with an isocaloric, isovolumetric
and palatability-matched carbohydrate beverage, protein has also been shown to be more satiating than glucose.
001) and comparable accuracy in diagnosing mild left ventricular diastolic dysfunction [153 patients (60%) with altered relaxation, early-to-late phase ratio <1, deceleration time >220 ms, isovolumetric
relaxation >110 ms] in stage B patients [BNP: AUC 0.
The sphering of platelets in EDTA is initially isovolumetric
(16,17), but almost immediately, their apparent size changes over ~1-2 h until a state of semiequilibrium is reached (8, 17, 18).
