Fluid resuscitation associated with elevated angiopoietin-2 and length of mechanical ventilation after cardiac surgery. Fluid restriction in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome increases ventilator-free days while lowering plasma angiopoietin-2 Ang-2a marker of pulmonary endothelial injury. We hypothesised that fluid resuscitation may lead to endothelial injury after cardiac surgery and analysed Ang-2, angiopoietin-1 Ang-1 and phospholipase A2 PLA2 levels and the impact of fluid management on ventilation time. Critical Care and Resuscitation:
Ferdinand Porsche founded Porsche in Stuttgartwith engineering colleagues including Karl Rabeand financial backing from Adolf Rosenberger. Unfortunately, car commissions were low in the depressed economic climate, so Porsche founded a subsidiary company Hochleistungs Motor GmbH High Efficiency Engines Ltd.
The was created to restrict the size of engine that could be used, with the authority estimating that this weight limit would allow around 2. On November 15 chief engineer Rabe submitted the first draft to the planning office of a racing car for the new formula, with Josef Kales responsible for the V16 enginewhile Rabe also held responsibility for the chassis.
The Chairman of the Board of Directors, Baron Klaus von Oertzen wanted a show piece project, so at fellow director's Adolf Rosenberger insistence, von Oertzen met with Porsche, who had done work for him before. In a meeting in the Reich ChancelloryHitler agreed with Porsche that for the glory of Germany, it would be better for two companies to develop the project, resulting in Hitler agreeing to split the money between Mercedes and Auto Union with ,Reichmaks to each company.
The problem with mid-engined design at the time was the stiffness of the contemporary ladder chassis and suspensionwhich resulted in a pronounced change in turning angle as the momentum of the centrally mounted engined changed on the chassis, and resulted in the car oversteering.
The suspension was all-independent, using parallel trailing arms and torsion bars at the front, while at the rear Porsche tried to counter the natural oversteer tendency with the use of a then advanced swing half-axle rear suspension.
It was only on the later Type D that the rear suspension would be replaced with a de Dion system, following the lead of Mercedes-Benzbut by then it was too late to do anything about the poor handling reputation the cars had gained. V16 engine installed inside a Type C The cars used supercharged engines that eventually produced almost horsepower which also contributed toward the handling difficulties, as it promoted oversteer which the cars already had in abundance.
The engine was originally the V16 engine that Porsche had started designing earlier; when, starting inthe maximum engine displacement for Grand Prix cars was limited to 3 litres for blown engines, it became a V It had two cylinder blocks, inclined at an angle of 45 degrees, with a single overhead camshaft to operate all 32 valves.
The cylinder heads were hemispherical, with the intake valves on the inside, directly connected to the camshaft through rocker arms.
The rocker arms of the exhaust valves were connected to the camshaft by pushrods that passed through tubes situated above the spark plugs; thus the engine had three valve covers.
The body was subjected to strenuous testing in the wind tunnel of the German Institute for Aerodynamicsa scientific organization that still exists. The fuel tank was located in the centre of the car, directly behind the driver, so that the car's front-rear weight distribution would remain unchanged as the fuel was used: The chassis tubes were initially used as water carriers from the radiator to the engine, but this was eventually abandoned after they often sprung small leaks.
Racing Development Problems listening to these files? The cars were developed and built by a specialist racing department of Horch work in Zwickau. As Mercedes had former racing driver turned designer Rudolf Uhlenhautwho could provide excellent feedback on the car and required developments; Auto Union were forced to create in-car measuring systems to provide additional feedback.
Auto Union used clockwork mechanism and a paper disc to record data such as engine revs while the car was being tested, allowing the engineers to study the collected data at a later date. This was much abated by the use of a Porsche innovation, a ZF manufactured limited slip differentialintroduced at the end of the season.
After the development of the Type A, Ferdinand Porsche became focused on development of the factory facilities for production of the Volkswagen Beetle at Wolfsburghanding over his daily role to his son Ferry.Search the history of over billion web pages on the Internet. a ' ~ a ~ ~ ' &4., A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR Inth- ast, ouw~, po-.
