The result is a qualitative and quantitative workload
profile of the emergency departments.\n\nThe 4 hospitals treated a total of 388 patients and the number of out-patients treated in each hospital was directly correlated to the distance from the mass incident and the highest workload arose shortly after the incident. With greater distances from the incident a higher proportion of in-patients were admitted and the highest workload occurred later. The key figures for capacity planning are presented and the main problems are discussed.\n\nEmergency departments demand a focused planning for mass casualty incidents and the central admission site is the focal point. The measures installed proved to be adequate to control planned and unplanned patient flow and to provide professional selleck screening library Momelotinib medical treatment.”
“Margaretamys christinae n. sp. is described from an adult male collected in tropical lower montane rain forest in Pegunungan Mekongga, the most extensive mountainous region on the southeastern peninsula of Sulawesi. Physical characteristics of the specimen (body size, fur coloration and texture, and dimensions of appendages) along with cranial and dental
qualitative and quantitative aspects are contrasted with similar traits in samples of M. beccarii (Musser, 1981), M. elegans (Musser, 1981), and M. parvus (Musser, 1981), the three other described species in the genus. The new species joins M. elegans and M. parvus as representatives of montane endemics, the former in Pegunungan Mekongga, the latter two in the west-central mountain block of Sulawesi’s core; M. beccarii occupies habitats in tropical lowland evergreen rain forest and is known by voucher material from the northeastern tip of the northern peninsula and central Sulawesi. Aside from its capture site 1.5m above ground at 1537m in lower montane forest, its age and sex, no other ecological information exists for the Mekongga species, but its possible
if not probable ecology is inferred from ecological information associated with the three other species. The four species are also the subjects of short discussions covering sympatry, zoogeography, phylogenetic alliances, and conservation.”
“Physiologic changes of pregnancy uniquely selleck kinase inhibitor influence anesthesia for Cesarean delivery. Included is a review of current obstetrical anesthesia considerations for Cesarean delivery and recent changes improving maternal care and outcome.\n\nA literature review was conducted using Pubmed and the Cochrane database.\n\nIncreased use of neuraxial techniques instead of general anesthesia for Cesarean delivery has improved maternal safety. Recent changes in the prevention of gastric aspiration, hypotension from neuraxial techniques, venous thrombosis and a team approach have improved maternal care. Elective Cesarean deliveries and management of urgent deliveries are areas of discussion.
