Well, Not for very long. First will come severe dehydration, then enzymes in the human body will denature completely at this temperature range and that means many metabolic processes will also stop eventual leading to death. These sort of temperatures will also lead to a heat stroke.

P wave represents atrial depolarization (hence atrial contraction). Atrial depolarization takes only a split second, therefore its corresponding wave will be smooth and rounded. Variations from this shape could be consequences of various heart diseases: for example,a spiked P wave is called P pulmonale and suggests right atrial enlargement. T wave ...

You give good examples, but they are a bit one-sided. The short answer is: these alarm signs you list were not crucial for our collective survival. Pain with CTS at least makes you stop using your hands, and if you use your brain, you might find the specific cause (without doctor or warning from your keyboard vendor). I once had a bad blow to both my ...

The root of the problem for a majority of cystic fibrosis patients is that they have two defective genes for a particular protein and at least one of these genes is defective because it is missing a 3-base codon for the amino acid at position 508 of the protein. Eluforsen, also known as QR-010, is a somewhat modified 33-base RNA molecule. The bases in it ...

You have a point there, but it probably does not play a big role. First one arm is not such a big branch, and then the carotids contain the main pressure "sensors", so the heart might just beat a bit weaker/slower. Resistance is higher, but demand is less. Compressions like that can happen all the time, through weight or muscle tension. If it is not both ...

Isolating virus particles is important for accurate genomic sequencing, which in turn enables study of mutation rates and determination of hotspots, locations in the genome where mutations occur at higher rates: “Sorting individual viral particles makes it possible to identify and sequence the genomes of viruses one by one,” states Òscar Fornàs, head of ...

2019-NCoV was first cultured by a Chinese group, as published here on January 24. China has not shared samples, but did share sequencing data in the linked paper and via GISAID. The Australian group at the Doherty Institute hasn't published yet, but did put out a press release today (January 29), and appears to be the first group outside of China to have ...

Not everyone sweats in seconds after drinking water in summer. Also, sweating in seconds after drinking water is not likely due to water being absorbed (Nutrition Reviews, 2015): Ingested fluids are not immediately available for assimilation into the body. They are initially stored in the stomach, and there is little net absorption of water or solute ...

Molecular oxygen also has roles in antimicrobial defense1,2. Specifically macrophages use O2 to create cascades of reactive nitrogen intermediates (RNI) and reactive oxygen intermediates (ROI; aka ROS) — these compounds have antimicrobial effects. The RNI cascade starts with nitric oxide (NO) and is catalyzed by a nitric oxide synthase, which converts ...
