Corrigendum: Repeated Low intensity Blast Exposure is Associated with Damaged Endothelial Glycocalyx and Downstream Behavioral Deficits
- 1Naval Medical Research Center, United States
In the original article, there was an error. The membrane thickness for the mylar membranes used for the blast exposure was incorrectly reported. The corrected paragraph provides the proper units and reflects a blast overpressure range which takes into account a shift in membranes used during the course of the study. Experimentally determined pressures and ranges are added.
A correction has been made to **Materials and Methods**, **Blast Overpressure Exposure**, **Paragraph Number One**:
The compression and expansion chambers were separated by (0.05 or 0.075 mm) polyethylene Mylar TM sheets (DuPontCo., Wilmington, DE, United States) that result in a peak pressure wave of (36.45 ±2.32 kPa), with a mean duration of (3.78±0.09 ms) and an impulse of (80.92±4.41 kPa*ms); mean± standard error for n=12 similar to previous reports (Ahlers et al., 2012).
The authors apologize for this error and state that this does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way. The original article has been updated.
