    Effect of temperature on cone bursting, seed extraction and germination in five provenances of <em>Pinus roxburghii</em> from Garhwal Himalaya in India

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    Pinus roxburghii (chir pine or long-needle pine) is considered to be a fire-hardy species. In this study the effect of a wide range of elevated temperatures (from 40 °C to 150 °C) on cone bursting and subsequent seed germination was...
  4. Comparison of forced expiratory spirometric flow changes following intrathecal bupivacaine and bupivacaine with fentanyl

    Comparison of forced expiratory spirometric flow changes following intrathecal bupivacaine and bupivacaine with fentanyl

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Background: Higher dermatomal block following spinal anaesthesia impairs inspiratory capacity and decreases forced expiratory flow rates. This decrease in forced expiratory flows can in turn decrease the effectiveness of cough. Intrathecal opioids are important adjuncts to intrathecal local anaesthetics. The...
