Sharing breathing signals has the capacity to provide insights into hidden experiences and enhance interpersonal communication. However, it remains unclear how the modality of breath signals (visual, haptic) is socially interpreted during collaborative tasks. In this mixed-methods study, we design and evaluate BreatheWithMe, a prototype for...

When a patient is in a hospital, it is very important to monitor their vital signs. Doctors and nurses use this information to assess the condition of the patient. Most of the existing vital signs measurement devices need physical contact with the patient. This thesis focuses on a non-contact vital signs estimation method. Using a mmWave radar,...

A pure culture of alkaliphilic haloarchaeon strain AArc-ST capable of anaerobic growth by carbohydrate-dependent sulfur respiration was obtained from hypersaline lakes in southwestern Siberia. According to phylogenetic analysis, AArc-ST formed a new genus level branch most related to the genus Natronoarchaeum in the order Halobacteriales. The...

OBJECTIVES: Adequacy of 16-20mm extracardiac conduits for adolescent Fontan patients remains unknown. This study aims to evaluate conduit adequacy using the inferior vena cava (IVC)-conduit velocity mismatch factor along the respiratory cycle. METHODS: Real-time 2D flow MRI was prospectively acquired in 50 extracardiac (16-20mm conduits)...

Urbanization influences soil carbon (C) stocks and flows, which, in turn, affect soil-derived ecosystem services. This paper explores soil C storage in urban greenspaces in the Dutch city of The Hague along a transect from the suburban seaside towards the city centre, reflecting a toposequence from dune to peaty inland soils. C storage and C...

Push-pull tests (PPTs) were evaluated with 1-D radially axisymmetric multi-component geochemical reactive transport modelling (RTM) to assess aquifer reactivity controlling groundwater quality. Nutrient fate and redox processes were investigated in an Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) system, in which oxic tile drainage water (TDW; nitrate ...

The current COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in an immense and unforeseen increase in demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare workers worldwide. Amongst other products, respirator masks are crucial to protect the users against transmission of the virus. Decontamination and reuse of the existing stock could be a solution to...

Early detection of exposure to a toxic chemical, e.g., in a military context, can be life-saving. We propose to use machine learning techniques and multiple continuously measured physiological signals to detect exposure, and to identify the chemical agent. Such detection and identification could be used to alert individuals to take...

Nine pure cultures of neutrophilic haloaloarchaea capable of anaerobic growth by carbohydrate dependent sulfur respiration were isolated from hypersaline lakes in southwestern Siberia and southern Russia. According to phylogenomic analysis the isolates were closely related to each other and formed a new species within the genus Halapricum ...

The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic resulted in shortages of production and test capacity of FFP2-respirators. Such facemasks are required to be worn by healthcare professionals when performing aerosol-generating procedures on COVID-19 patients. In response to the high demand and short supply, we designed three models of facemasks that are suitable for...

Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) has long been known to support anaerobic respiration in a few species of basically aerobic extremely halophilic euryarchaea living in hypersaline lakes. Recently, it has also been shown to be utilized as an additional electron acceptor in basically anaerobic sulfur-reducing haloarchaea. Here we investigated whether...

Study objectives: Unobtrusive monitoring of sleep and sleep disorders in children presents challenges. We investigated the possibility of using Ultra-Wide band (UWB) radar to measure sleep in children. Methods: Thirty-two children scheduled to undergo a clinical polysomnography participated; their ages ranged from 2 months to 14 years. During...

Background: The Fontan procedure is the last of three stages of congenital heart surgery to treat children born with a single ventricle heart defect. In these patients, a balanced hepatic blood flow distribution (HFD) towards both lungs is important, since a lack of “hepatic factor” has been associated with the formation of pulmonary...

The facial fit of respirators is crucial for determining how effectively respirators may protect users from exposure to airborne contaminants, when their use is required in the workplace. In the Chilean market, all the respirators available have been designed and manufactured using foreign regulations. The aim of this research was to...

Lichens are a symbiosis between a fungus and one or more photosynthetic microorganisms that enables the symbionts to thrive in places and conditions they could not compete independently. Exchanges of water and sugars between the symbionts are the established mechanisms that support lichen symbiosis. Herein, we present a new linkage between algal...

Bedaquiline (BDQ), an inhibitor of the mycobacterial F<sub>1</sub>F<sub>o</sub>-ATP synthase, has revolutionized the antitubercular drug discovery program by defining energy metabolism as a potent new target space. Several studies have recently suggested that BDQ ultimately causes mycobacterial cell death through a phenomenon known as...

When faced with environmental changes, microbes often enter a temporary growth arrest during which they reprogram the expression of specific genes to adapt to the new conditions. A prime example of such a lag phase occurs when microbes need to switch from glucose to other, less-preferred carbon sources. Despite its industrial relevance, the...

The ubiquity of strictly anaerobic sulfur-respiring haloarchaea in hypersaline systems with circumneutral pH has shaken a traditional concept of this group as predominantly aerobic heterotrophs. Here, we demonstrated that this functional group of haloarchaea also has its representatives in hypersaline alkaline lakes. Sediments from various...

Anaerobic ammonium-oxidizing (anammox) bacteria primarily grow by the oxidation of ammonium coupled to nitrite reduction, using CO2 as the sole carbon source. Although they were neglected for a long time, anammox bacteria are encountered in an enormous species (micro)diversity in virtually any anoxic environment that contains fixed nitrogen. It...

During the last decade, the development of technologies is changing the meaning of technology in our daily life. The development of intelligent products immerses us in technology and therefore it no longer stands in the background. This ubiquitous technology and new smart computing systems interact with humans and become more than just context...
