Jeffrey Murphy, Bhargav Shivkumar, Lukasz Ziarek
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Specifically we detail our experiences in modifying MLton, a whole program, optimizing compiler for Standard ML, for use in such contexts.  ...  In this extended abstract we present our current work on leveraging Standard ML for developing embedded and real-time systems.  ...  We use MLton [13] , a whole program optimizing compiler for SML, as a base to implement the constructs necessary for using Standard ML (SML) [12] in an embedded context.  ...

Combined Spinal Epidural Overcoming a Lumbar Lipoma for Lower Limb Both Bone Fracture

Robin S Chacko, Krishna Prasad Thangarasu, Hariesh Annamalai
2021 Research & Innovation in Anesthesia  
With meticulous technique and good knowledge of anatomy, we safely executed combined spinal-epidural anesthesia for our patient, the highlight being threading the epidural catheter downward above the lipoma  ...  to position it optimally and administering the subarachnoid block from below the lipoma, which resulted in satisfactory intra-and postoperative outcomes.  ...  Following this, a 23-G Quincke's spinal needle was inserted in the L3-L4 intervertebral space and 3.5 mL of hyperbaric 0.5% bupivacaine was injected intrathecally.  ...

Postoperative Apnea in a Neonate Following an Epidural Bolus Dose Through a High Thoracic Epidural Catheter

Jay Mathias, Deanna Couser, David P. Martin, Joseph D. Tobias
2021 Journal of Medical Cases  
The patient had an epidural catheter that had been threaded from the caudal space to the thoracic level to provide analgesia following an abdominal surgical procedure.  ...  Adverse effects of epidural anesthesia in neonates are discussed and options for identifying the correct placement of a thoracic epidural catheter are reviewed.  ...  No hemodynamic changes were observed, and an epidural infusion of 1.5% 2-chloroprocaine and clonidine (0.1 µg/mL) was started at 2 mL/h per standard clinical practice [4] .  ...

Efficient parallel programming in Poly/ML and Isabelle/ML

David C.J. Matthews, Makarius Wenzel
2010 Proceedings of the 5th ACM SIGPLAN workshop on Declarative aspects of multicore programming - DAMP '10  
At each stage we carefully selected from the many existing concepts for parallelism, and integrated them in a way that fits smoothly into the idea of purely functional ML with the addition of synchronous  ...  Despite substantial reorganization in the background, only minimal changes are occasionally required in user ML code, and none at the Isabelle application level (where parallel theory and proof processing  ...  of the name space must of course be thread-safe.  ...

Atomic heap transactions and fine-grain interrupts

Olin Shivers, James W. Clark, Roland McGrath
1999 Proceedings of the fourth ACM SIGPLAN international conference on Functional programming - ICFP '99  
In particular, the standard techniques prevent thread schedulers from switching threads on VM page faults.  ...  Standard techniques for providing this atomicity guarantee have large latencies and other performance problems that impede their application in high-performance, interruptladen, thread-based systems applications  ...  For example, the SML/NJ [SML/NJ] implementation of Standard ML allocates procedure frames and boxes floating-point numbers in the heap.  ...

A technical review of the history, development and performance of the anaesthetic conserving device "AnaConDa" for delivering volatile anaesthetic in intensive and post-operative critical care

Ron Farrell, Glen Oomen, Pauric Carey
2018 Journal of clinical monitoring and computing  
There is a shift in critical care to adopt volatile anaesthetics as sedatives for certain patients using mechanical ventilation.  ...  It can be used for 24 h of sedation, and fits into current critical care ventilator circuits almost without modifications.  ...  These adaptors can be screwed securely onto the standard 250 mL brown glass or plastic isoflurane or sevoflurane bottles, and have a sprung stainless steel valve with matching thread for the modified syringe  ...

Ken Wakita, Takashi Asano, Masataka Sassa
1999 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Distributed Caml (D'Caml) is a distributed implementation of Caml, a dialect of ML. The compiler produces native code for diverse execution platforms.  ...  The distributed shared memory allows transmission and sharing of arbitrary ML objects including higher-order functions, exceptions, and mutable objects without affecting the sequential semantics of ML.  ...  Acknowledgment The authors thank anonymous Euro-Par '99 reviewers for giving us precious comments. Tetsu Ushijima implemented earlier version of D'Caml/MPI.  ...
