Examples of regimen in a Sentence

  1. Cassi Free:

    The CDC states online that gasoline-powered engines on boats, including onboard generators, produce carbon monoxide (CO), a colorless and odorless gas that can poison or kill someone who breathes too much of it. The generators on many boats vent toward the rear, meaning that someone sitting there can be put at risk for CO poisoning. Additionally, traveling at slow speeds or idling in the water can cause CO to build up in a boats cabin, cockpit, bridge, and aft deck, or in an open area. Wind from the aft section of the boat can increase this buildup of CO, per the CDC. Johnathan and Blake both required oxygen to bring down their CO levels. Blake has continued to have issues with memory and focus, while Johnathan has struggled with energy levels, Cassi said. CORONAVIRUS PEDIATRIC FATALITIES MOSTLY AMONG MINORITIES, THOSE WITH UNDERLYING CONDITIONS, CDC SAYS We thought it was due to the grief and had him in counseling, but we are now being told that grief may not be the only issue, Cassi said of her 15-year-old, noting that both boys are scheduled for MRIs and have a referral to begin sessions with a neuropsychiatrist to hopefully start a regimen that is supposed to help repair any damaged neurological connections. Moving forward has been hard for the Free family, with Cassi noting that she and Brett struggle daily. The joy has disappeared. Weve always been an active family, but we have little energy to do anything anymore. As I stand in these shoes, Ive realized that there are so many ways to notify people, other boaters, of the dangers, she said. The Free family had never heard of boats causing carbon monoxide poisoning before.  (Courtesy of Cassi Free) New boats may have less risk, but many new boats cost as much as a house. A Mastercraft X26 costs $165,000. So for those with a smaller budget, your risks can be exponentially higher, many, if not all, new boats have warnings stamped on them. Used boats do not. And people with new boats, those who are lucky enough to be privy to the few notifications that are made available, forget that a cared-for boat can last for decades- and that the lakes are full of boats that have the potential to backdraft lethal levels of CO into the back seating area.

  2. Anna Powell:

    While we cant draw firm conclusions on the exact antibiotic or pro-biotic regimen/duration, this study highlights that, yes, penile skin appears to be a reservoir for the bacteria that are associated with BV in women.

  3. Peter Kalivas:

    A five-day regimen of this drug and that all goes back to normal.

  4. Ashish Deshmukh:

    If ongoing clinical trials provide evidence regarding sustained benefits of a one-dose regimen, then implications of single-dose strategy could be substantial for reducing the burden of these cancers globally.

  5. Marc Roig:

    When thinking about how to maximize your training regimen to improve/maintain memory do not ask yourself only what type of exercise, intensity or frequency is the best. Ask yourself when to train to achieve the best results.
