BOUNDARY LAYER SOUND BEATS (2022)
The result of a lifetime of investigation and research into turbulent transverse flows in tubes, Dr. Gavin Hamilton presents a logical explanation for what may be one of the last great unsolved mysteries of modern physics. With rich illustrations backing up his research, Dr. Hamilton delivers a compelling addition to scientific literature.
THE NURSES ARE INNOCENT (2011)
The author’s major work: the discovery that MBT, a toxic, allergenic contaminant leached from rubber seals of drug vials and tips of syringe plungers caused two clusters of injection-related reactions, including anaphylaxis – a preventable potentially lethal hazard affecting most injections worldwide that – unacceptably – is allowed to persist. MBT, a cumulative toxin, measured as digoxin by blood tests, resulted in false accusations of serial murder of Toronto cardiac ward babies by intentional digoxin overdosing, 1980-81.
PATTERNS IN FLUID FLOW PARADOXES (1980)
The recognition of simple harmonic sound in arteriographic stationary waves provided the key to the enigma of transition to turbulence: amplification of flow-generated transverse standing wave sound freezes laminar slip.
Gavin Hamilton was both a hero and a voice in the wilderness... [he] singlehandedly had forced removal of MBT from syringes and rubber stoppers in Canada. Since then, we have not had a serious IV contrast reaction at our hospital. Formerly, we had deaths, and we had serious reactions in batches.
