Definitions for "Shunt"
an artificially constructed or an abnormal passage connecting two usually separate structures in the body
A passage between two blood vessels or two chambers of the heart. A shunt may occur naturally (as in a left-to-right shunt though an ASD) or may be artificially formed (as in creation of a Blalock-Taussig shunt).
A tube or pathway that diverts blood or other body fluid through an alternate route inside the body.  There are several common reasons for shunts to be placed so specific details should be obtained from the health care provider.
To provide with a shunt; as, to shunt a galvanometer.
A conducting circuit joining two points in a conductor, or the terminals of a galvanometer or dynamo, so as to form a parallel or derived circuit through which a portion of the current may pass, for the purpose of regulating the amount passing in the main circuit.
a piece of metal connecting the stripped ends of electric cap legwires to prevent stray currents from causing accidental detonation of the cap. The act of deliberately shorting any portion of an electrical blasting circuit.
a calibrated very low resistance put in series with power wiring, the voltage drop across the resistor (in millivolts) being a measure of the current
a highly calibrated, very low resistance resistor, which is placed in series (in line) with the wire carrying the current to be measured
a very large resistor that converts electric energy running through it into heat so that it can be lost in space
a heart defect, which allows blood to cross from the right to left chambers of the heart, bypassing the lungs
a palliative (helping) operation to increase the amount of blood going to the lungs
In respiratory physiology, a passageway for blood to bypass an organ. In a right-to-left shunt, blood passes from systemic veins to systemic arteries bypassing the pulmonary capillaries (so that it does not exchange oxygen or carbon dioxide with the alveoli).
Keywords:  sibilance, shuttle
Shuttle Sibilance
Keywords:  conections, buss, slider, bar, esd
a metal bar with electrical conections on it
Also called shorting bars or tie bars. These can either be rigid or foam shapes designed to electrically short device leads and reduce the possibility of ESD damage.
A small piece of wire connecting from the buss bar to the motor brush. Shunt wires are recommend because it directs the current flow directly from the motor lead wire to the back of the motor brush. Other wise, the motor brush must get its power from the spring, hood and slider plate.
Keywords:  shift, car, projectile, knock, shallow
To turn off to one side; especially, to turn off, as a grain or a car upon a side track; to switch off; to shift.
The shifting of the studs on a projectile from the deep to the shallow sides of the grooves in its discharge from a shunt gun.
To "shift" or "drill" cars to another path.
An accident involving impact with anything solid. In his youth the late James Hunt was known as Hunt the Shunt because of his spectacular style.
British term for crash or accident.
AC and dataline surge suppressors re-direct, or shunt, surges present on AC and datalines out to safe electrical grounding systems. See suppressor.

To cause to move suddenly; to give a sudden start to; to shove.
Keywords:  collision
A collision.
Keywords:  ignore, input

Keywords:  turn, off, left, track, free
To go aside; to turn off.
A turning off to a side or short track, that the principal track may be left free.
