    A contribution to the phylogeny and taxonomy of the <em>Pachydactylus weberi</em> group (Squamata: Gekkonidae): a case of intraspecific colour polymorphism confounding taxonomy

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Herpetology
    Pachydactylus is the most species-rich reptile genus in southern Africa. Most species are habitat specialists adapted to hyper-arid conditions of the Namibian and north-western South African xeric regions. Although a fair number of phylogenetic studies and taxonomic revisions have been...
  2. Comparison of lung ultrasound with transpulmonary thermodilution in assessing extra-vascular lung water

    Comparison of lung ultrasound with transpulmonary thermodilution in assessing extra-vascular lung water

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Background: Increased extra-vascular lung water (EVLW) is common in critical care and correlates with the severity of acute lung injury, length of intensive care unit stay and mortality. Lung ultrasound (LUS) can assess EVLW by determining the amount of ‘B-lines’:...
