The close connection between ROS production, unphysiological circulation, and SIR during CPB is very well-known both with coated and noncoated ECC systems [13, 14].
The "education of the human being," Preyer concludes, "begins in the first hour of his existence" (56); and the "greatest defect in our European education at the close of the nineteenth century" (40), as he saw it, was a lack of "physiological training" during early childhood and an excess of "unphysiological instruction" (41) during later periods of development.
Our results show that the trial with the Se-SM mix was safe and not associated with unphysiological levels of serum selenium (136.9 [+ or -] 48.4 ng/ml on day 180), which was stable around values recommended for prostate cancer prevention and redox status (Ghiselli et al., 2000).
This was further supported by Crinivec (2004) who reported that 'unphysiological posture' and prolonged sitting adds to PRMDs.
The resulting metabolic shift directs tyrosine metabolism towards the decarboxylation pathway with unphysiological production of noradrenalin, dopamine together with increased synthesis of amines such as tyramine, octopamine and synephine.
Two main points of this experimental approach need to be discussed: (1) the unphysiological character of the PF stimulation paradigm and (2) the decerebrate preparation.
The operation seems unphysiological and carries a mortality rate of about 4% [21].
To do so is entirely unphysiological. Drinking more water than you need increases your total blood volume and also pressurizes you kidneys into working overtime so as to filter excess water out of your circulatory system.
It was claimed that this high oestrogen concentration is unphysiological and makes the cells hypersensitive to oestrogenic stimuli.
This allows the expert to examine whether variations or changes in the athlete's values fall into expected physiological patterns or not, e.g., will a cyclist display a drop in his hemoglobin concentration after several days of racing in a stage race (which would be physiological due to plasma volume expansion) or will the hemoglobin concentration increase over the same period (which would be unphysiological).
Despite of the unphysiological rapid ascent to altitude the course of CP seems to have prognostic relevance regarding the development of AMS symptoms in the near future.
