  • Pulmonary Embolism (See also Chap. 256) Chest pain due to pulmonary embolism is believed to be due to distention of the pulmonary artery or infarction of a segment of the lung adjacent to the pleura. Massive pulmonary emboli may lead to substernal pain that is suggestive of acute myocardial infarction. More commonly, smaller emboli lead to focal pulmonary infarctions that cause pain that is lateral and pleuritic. Associated symptoms include dyspnea and, occasionally, hemoptysis. Tachycardia is usually present.

  • Pulmonary embolism is a serious, potentially life-threatening cardiopulmonary disease that occurs due to partial or total obstruction of the pulmonary arterial bed. Pulmonary embolism constitutes 5-25% of in-hospital deaths, and mortality is decreased from 30% to 8% with early treatment. Therefore, risk factors should be identified and treatment should be planned to decrease the risk of mortality. Clinical findings, routine laboratory data, electrocardiogram, chest X-ray, and arterial blood gases are not sufficient to diagnose or rule out pulmonary embolus.

  • EventReporter is an integrated, modular and distributed solution for system management. Microsoft Windows NT™, Windows 2000™ and Windows XP™ are highly capable operating systems (we will call all of them "NT" in the following documentation). However, their standard event reporting mechanisms are rather limited. Administrators seeking complete control over their server environment need to regularly check the server event logs. Adiscon's EventReporter provides central notification of any events logged to the NT system event log.

  • The research in this paper seeks ways for manufacturing companies to accomplish projects in real time with less cost. This paper describes a new model using critical success factors of implementing projects in small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The factors in the conceptual model were identified in past studies and are validated from interviews with 20 project managers in the electronics industry in Iran. Several prior researches have suggested critical success factors for reducing time and cost in the development of a new product. These factors are...

  • In order to historicize the Workman montages, I want to point first to the Oscars telecast for 2002, a year in which no Chuck Workman pieces appeared, and the first year the awards were held in Hollywood. This Oscars was different: the show was held in a theater that seated 1500 fewer guests than some previous venues (Anderton), but whose location within the new media complex and mall at Hollywood and Highland offered— for virtual guests—geographic cachet, ersatz Intolerance elephants, and big-screen video displays. As commentators and stars alike remarked, this...

  • The world’s climate is changing. The scientific evidence is incontrovertible: most of this change is due to human activity, and the process is speeding up as more and more carbon dioxide, methane and other greenhouse gases are pumped into the atmosphere. The next 10 years are critical. Carbon dioxide emissions must be cut rapidly. If they are, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, we may limit the rise in global temperatures to two degrees centigrade.

  • Approach to the Patient: Hemoptysis The history is extremely valuable. Hemoptysis that is described as bloodstreaking of mucopurulent or purulent sputum often suggests bronchitis. Chronic production of sputum with a recent change in quantity or appearance favors an acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis. Fever or chills accompanying bloodstreaked purulent sputum suggests pneumonia, whereas a putrid smell to the sputum raises the possibility of lung abscess. When sputum production has been chronic and copious, the diagnosis of bronchiectasis should be considered.

  • When toymaker Mattel launched an e-commerce website in 2009 (, it used a heavy dose of video to increase consumer engagement and distinguish its offerings from those found on traditional retail sites. The company, in effect, turned video into a direct sales tool: in the fi rst year, as many as 42% of the top-selling products on the Mattel site appeared after a visitor clicked on a video. Mattel cross-promotes the store and specifi c products heavily through its Facebook page and Twitter account.

  • The overriding conclusion of the Merrill Research & Associates (2003) tracking study is that the U.S. wine industry now stands at a crossroads. For the first time in thirty years, a new generation of young adults gives evidence of a strong preference for wine as part of their lifestyles. Many of them are entering the category as core wine drinkers. With their significant age-group numbers and their adoption of wine in their mid-twenties, they are a leading indicator of great potential as their cohorts likewise reach adulthood.

  • This landmark principle, "All beauty is a making one of opposites, and the making one of opposites is what we are going after in ourselves," was stated by Eli Siegel, the American poet, critic, and educator, who founded Aesthetic Realism. It is the basis of the museum art and anthropology classes we teach together. And this principle, we've seen, is the means for people to have large emotions from the art of every continent—including styles unfamiliar to them— and to see people of other cultures with authentic depth and kindness....

  • Physical Findings Patients with pneumococcal pneumonia usually appear ill and have a grayish, anxious appearance that differs from that of persons with viral or mycoplasmal pneumonia. Temperature, pulse, and respiratory rate are typically elevated. Elderly patients may have only a slight temperature elevation or may be afebrile. Hypothermia may be documented instead of fever and is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Pleuritic chest pain may cause diminished respiratory excursion (splinting) on the affected side.

  • The term of a bond ends on the bond’s maturity date, when the issuer repays to the investor the face amount listed on the bond. When a bond is held to maturity, its face amount is repaid in full. Before maturity, however, the value of a bond often fluctuates. These continual changes in bond prices are influenced by many factors, including interest rate movements, supply of and demand for bonds, changes in the financial health of bond issuers, returns offered by other investments, and the maturity date of a bond. Price fluctuations will be addressed more fully on pages 12 and 13....

  • Governments in developing countries need to spend more money on essential public services if they are to have a serious impact on poverty. Take the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), a set of targets for halving extreme poverty, providing universal primary education, halting the spread of HIV and AIDS and much more by 2015. Ambitious, yes, but achievable. To meet many of the MDGs, governments will need to hire more public sector employees, from teachers and doctors to agricultural extension workers.

  • Why has relational database technology grown to become the de facto database tech- nology since that time? A look back at previous database technology may help to explain this phenomenon. Database management systems were first defined in the 1960s to provide a common organizational framework for what had been data stored in independent files. In 1964, Charles Bachman of General Electric proposed a network model with data records linked together, forming intersecting sets of data, as shown on the left in Figure 1-1. This work formed the basis of the CODASYL Data Base Task Group.

  • The yield spread – the difference between the long-term and the short-term interest rate – is widely discussed as a leading indicator for economic activity. While the yield spread does not affect economic activity in itself, in contrast to the level of short-term or long-term interest rates, it may contain information about market expectations of future changes in inflation and real interest rates, which may in turn be associated with fluctuations in real output.
