  • Accidental Freezing of the Tongue to Metal Poles 

    Gurzo, Mike; Ho, Jeremy; Lally, Sean; Selig, Mike (2000-01-10)
    In an attempt to verify the age-old claim that your tongue will freeze to a metal pole and become stuck if you decide to lick it in the midst of winter, we have modeled tongue contact with a cold metal surface using ...
  • Cold Therapy Analysis in Structurally Damaged Tissue 

    Lai, Sherry; Pottle, Bill; Schlesinger, Nicole; Lee, Jeff S. (2000-01-10)
    For our project, we conducted an analysis of cold therapy for structurally damaged tissue. Our intent was to determine the ideal conditions of temperature and time of cold therapy needed to most effectively treat a bruise. ...
  • Frostbite in Ithaca: A Walk to Riley-Robb 

    Aridgides, Lynn; Avrin, Becky; Smith, Chris (2000-01-10)
    Frostbite occurs when body tissues freeze after being exposed to extreme cold and wind. It?s most likely to occur on body extremities ? fingers, nose, ears, and toes ? areas far from the warm body core and exposed to the ...
  • Heat and Moisture Transport in the Nasal Cavity 

    Bahr, Douglas; Tyler, John Poe; Weinert, Peter; Egan, John (2000-01-10)
    The intake of air into the lungs is obviously a vital process for the survival of humans, and the conditioning of this air from ambient to alveolar is a necessity accomplished primarily in the nasal cavity. The human nose ...
  • Cryogenic Freezing of the Entire Prostate Gland 

    Ehrenberg, Morton; Flynn, Terence; Seth, Rajeev; Thompson, Glenn; Yi, Jason (2000-01-10)
    The goal of this study was to model cryogenic freezing of the entire prostate, using five cryoprobes, while minimizing damage to the surrounding tissue. A 3-D model was attempted, but failed due to time constraints; ...
  • Thermal Burning and Its Effects on Human Skin 

    Campbell, Mike; Goodman, Joshua; Millis, Carrie; Rasmussen, Jessica (2000-01-10)
    The objective of this paper is to model thermal burning due to application of a heat source, in the form of a cylindrical disc, through the three distinct layers of human skin, the epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous fat. ...
  • Prostate Cryosurgery with Various Numbers of Probes 

    Chow, Brian; Lau, Ingar; Neidrauer, Mike; Park, Jennifer (2000-01-10)
    Cryosurgery is an increasingly popular way to treat prostate cancer. This process includes inserting one or more probes directly into the prostate to freeze the whole tissue and kill the cancer cells. The number of probes ...
  • Heart Cryopreservation 

    Foote, Stacey; Gaines, Carmen; Levine, Jacob; Pecak, Garry; Saikkonen, Kelly (2000-01-10)
    Heart disease affects many people and heart transplants are becoming more common. Limited shelf life is a major hindrance to the success of heart transplants. Cryopreservation opens an avenue for increasing shelf life. ...
  • Thermal Effects of Laser Eye Correction on the Cornea 

    Chen, Chih Hao; Chen, Diana; Chow, Kim Foo; Hui, JenYee; Lo, Darrick (2000-01-10)
    Eye laser surgery such as Photo Refractive Kerotectomy (PRK) has been the most recent technology towards correcting vision disorders. However, 20/20 vision is not guaranteed and side effects are possible. By measuring ...
