  1. Comparison of ultrasound-guided vs. anatomical landmark-guided cannulation of the femoral vein at the optimum position in infant

    Comparison of ultrasound-guided vs. anatomical landmark-guided cannulation of the femoral vein at the optimum position in infant

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Background: Femoral vein cannulation can be a routine process during major surgery in infants and children, and may prove to be lifesaving under certain conditions. This study compared ultrasound (US)-guided cannulation of the femoral vein in infants with the traditional...
  2. Securing African forests for future drier climates: applying ecophysiology in tree improvement

    Securing African forests for future drier climates: applying ecophysiology in tree improvement

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    Increasing incidences of drought-induced tree mortality are being recorded worldwide, including Africa. African forests cover a significant proportion of the continent, which implies that African forest sustainability is threatened from a climate-change perspective. This is especially problematic in a developing...
  3. Superficial location of the brachial plexus and axillary artery in relation to pectoralis minor: a case report

    Superficial location of the brachial plexus and axillary artery in relation to pectoralis minor: a case report

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Knowledge of the anatomy of the infraclavicular fossa is important as this region is a target site for anaesthesia of the upper limb during infraclavicular approaches to brachial plexus blocks and in central venous cannulation of the axillary or subclavian...
  4. The effect of different anaesthetic mask shapes on the anatomical dead space using infant, child and adult part-task trainers

    The effect of different anaesthetic mask shapes on the anatomical dead space using infant, child and adult part-task trainers

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Dead space is the portion of tidal volume that does not participate in alveolar gas exchange. The purpose of this study was to compare the dead space contribution of differently shaped masks, of the same size, by measuring the volume...
  5. Effect of moringa extract on the leaf anatomy and yield potential of tomato infected by <em>Alternaria solani</em>

    Effect of moringa extract on the leaf anatomy and yield potential of tomato infected by <em>Alternaria solani</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Tomato is often exposed to hormones and diseases, among other factors, to which responses in leaf anatomy and yield are observed. This study evaluated responses in the leaf anatomy of Alternaria solani infected (IN) and non-infected (NIN) tomato (Solanum lycopersicum)...
