Cardiovascular emergencies account for at least 30% of all medical emergencies. The impact of cardiovascular disease is felt in every hospital and every community. Whether you are drawn to critical care practice or not, you are bound to be confronted by acute cardiac events. Responding appropriately to cardiac emergencies requires a basic familiarity with cardiac anatomy and physiology, the ability to mobilize an advanced life support team, and the skills to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)....
Addressing diet and physical activity in the workplace has the potential
to improve the health status of workers; contribute to a positive and
caring image of the company; improve staff morale; reduce staff
turnover and absenteeism; enhance productivity; and reduce sick leave,
health plan costs and workers' compensation and disability payments.
Having identified and classified relevant water pollution problems, and having assigned
priority to them, the next step is to identify appropriate interventions to cope with the
problems. For every problem identified, therefore, an assessment should be made of the
most appropriate means for intervention. Furthermore, an indication should be given of
the relevant administrative level(s) to be involved. The proposed interventions may vary
significantly in detail and scope.
Population displacement caused by cyclone damage and flooding can result in overcrowding in
resettlement areas, raising the risk of transmission of certain communicable diseases. Measles (see section
below on vaccine-preventable diseases), ARI, diphtheria and pertussis are transmitted from person to
person through respiratory droplets, and the risks are increased in situations of forced relocation to shared
areas which are overcrowded and have inadequate ventilation. Overcrowding can also increase the
likelihood of transmission of meningitis, waterborne and vector-borne diseases.
With combined power and heat generation (cogeneration) the
waste heat incurred during engine operation is recovered and
utilized to satisfy thermal system process requirements for low-
grade steam and/or hot water. In many cases this utilization of
waste heat results in overall systems of efficiencies of up to 90+%
(thermal + electrical). This efficient form of energy conversion is
able to achieve primary energy savings of about 40% using gas
engine cogeneration systems, compared with conventional
separate power and heat generation.

Cogeneration or CHP (Combined Heat and Power). The terms
cogeneration and CHP are used interchangeably in this paper and
are defined as the combined simultaneous generation of heat and
electrical energy with a common source of fuel. Common examples
of cogeneration applications include pulp and paper mills, steel
mills, food and chemical processing plants, and District Heating
The IIP for England & Wales in section 8.3.2 debated the relative advantages of continuous
operation and new construction, for fleets approaching a nominal term of use of 30 years for diesel
trains and 35 years for electric trains.
In this review, experimental studies were classified as
RCTs when randomly allocated intervention groups were
compared, where a distinct control group could receive
either another treatment modality or 'no treatment'. Thus
studies were eligible for inclusion if there was at least one
arm with a PFMT protocol, alone or together with other
adjunctive therapies, compared with either a control
group of 'no treatment' or 'usual treatment' or a different
PFMT protocol, alone or together with other adjunctive
therapies (biofeedback, electrical stimulation or vaginal
Mercury that exists in a stable state in the Earth’s
crust is referred to as “geologic” mercury. The
active mercury cycle begins when mercury is
released from this stable form to the environment
through natural processes or human intervention.
There are four principal pathways releasing
mercury to the environment. First is through
natural processes; for example, mercury that was
once in the Earth’s crust could be released through
a volcanic eruption or other geological activity.
