Please note that in the text on page 819 and in the legend of Figure 4 there is an error regarding the given time interval of “15 ms” of automatic pump speed adjustments. The correct sentence should read:
“Within 350 ms, pump speeds decrease by 2,000 rpm from baseline (for 150 ms), then increase by 4,000 rpm (for 200 ms), and lastly adjust back to previously programmed values.”
In Figure 5C, there is an error in the given time interval of “<15 ms.” The correct sentence should read:
“Flow cessation or retrograde flow occur during a very short time period (of <150 ms).
The authors apologize for these errors.
