As a result of intensive research efforts in recent decades, atmospheric pressure plasma jets (APPJs) now represent the most promising discharge candidates for surface treatment of various materials because of their ability to generate a high flux of different metastable active species.
For this reason we aimed to investigate whether atmospheric alterations (including atmospheric pressure outdoor temperature and humidity changes) play a role in the presentation of cases with hemoptysis both idiopathic and secondary to various diseases.
The price of the G-TRAN Series "Multi ionization Gauge SH2" combined vacuum gauge will be 120,000 yen for the SH2 Multi ionization gauge unit for measurements between the medium and high vacuum range, 180,000 yen for the SH2 and SPU Pirani gauge connection type that can measure from low to high vacuum range, and 230,000 yen for the type which includes the SH2, SPU and SAU pressure sensor that can measure from the atmospheric pressure to high vacuum range.
