Index

A book containing references, alphabetically arranged, to the contents of a series or collection of documents or volumes; or a section (normally at the end) of a single volume or set of volumes containing such references to its contents.

Statistical indexes are also used to track or measure changes in the economy (for example, the Consumer Price Index) and movement in stock markets (for example, Standard & Poor's Index). Such indexes are usually keyed to a base year, month, or other period of comparison.

In mortgage financing, the term is used to determine adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) interest rates after the discount period ends. Common indexes for ARMs are one-year Treasury Securities and the national average cost of funds to savings and loan associations.

The results showed that the patient's urine volume obviously increased six hours after treatment, reaching 2 to 4 ml * kg-1 * h-1 target urine volume; the levels of blood urea nitrogen, serum creatinine and serum potassium decreased compared with before treatment; pH and oxygenation index increased compared with before treatment; the average mechanical ventilation time was (36.34 +- 10.81) h; 88.9% of the patients had renal function recovery and were successfully removed from equipment, with their prognosis improved.
In summary, electroacupuncture at the Lieque, Chize, and Zusanli points can further improve the oxygenation index of patients with lung injury induced by SAP and alleviate the APALI, and the mechanism may be related to the downregulation of the TNF-[alpha] level and the upregulation of the IL-10 concentration.
There were also significant inverse correlations between the oxygenation index and plasma levels of IL-6 (P = 0.001, [R.sup.2] = 0.210) and IL-8 (P = 0.001, [R.sup.2] = 0.137) (Figures 4(b) and 4(c)).
Vital signs, oxygenation index, airway secretion quantity and character, SA, and adverse events were tracked on a daily basis.
Upon successful modeling, the dynamic lung compliance and oxygenation index of both groups of animals decreased significantly.
A useful severity guide for smaller children is an oxygenation index >40, and for larger patients a Murray score >3.0.
The difference between the relative concentration changes in O2Hb and HHb (A[O2Hb-HHb]) was taken as the muscle oxygenation index (OI) (Hamaoka et al., 2007; Legrand et al., 2007).
The oxygenation index also worsened from 16.4 [+ or -] 8.8 at the start of CMV to 23.6 [+ or -] 15.8 at the start of HFOV Pulmonary oxygenation at baseline, two hours and 24 hours after the start of HFOV (or at the last point of measurement if HFOV ended within the first 24 hours) is shown in Figure 2.
There was a steady and significant improvement in oxygenation index in both groups at the first and second hours of ventilation.
