  • It is only 26 years since the first percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) was carried out by the pioneering Swiss radiologist, Andreas Greuntzig, heralding the dawn of interventional cardiology. In this short time, interventional cardiology has overcome many limitations and undergone major evolutionary changes—most notably the development of the coronary stent. Worldwide, many thousands of patients now safely undergo percutaneous coronary intervention every day, and the numbers continue to grow.

  • The importance of the anesthetist in perioperative care cannot be too greatly emphasized. Correct patient selection and procedure planning can only be optimized by a team approach and together with the surgeon; the anesthetist forms the core of the team.

  • It is spread mainly by bites of infected animals. The virus present in their saliva is inoculated in the bite trauma. Foxes are the main reservoir of the disease. Camels can be infected by dog or fox bites, but the chances of spread from camel to man appear to be small. Nevertheless, camel bites in endemic (prevalent in a population or geographical areas at all times) areas should be regarded potentially dangerous, especially if the animal is showing signs of unusual behaviour at the time of bite or does so within next 7 to 10 days (signs such as...

  • Babies exposed to carbon monoxide during the maturation of their organs may suffer permanent changes to those organs. Studies using newborn rats showed that carbon monoxide exposure could cause changes in the heart muscle tissue. This is turn could increase the severity of effects of artery constrictions when they became adults. Other animal studies have shown that long-term carbon monoxide exposure can contribute to a disease called ventricular hypertrophy, in which the cells of the heart's ventricle chambers are enlarged and possibly weakened.

  • In general, you’ll have to pay tax on the money you make on a fund. Interest, dividends and capital gains are all treated differently for tax purposes and that will affect your return from an investment. Keep in mind that distributions are taxable in the year you receive them, whether you get them in cash or they are reinvested for you. However, if you hold your mutual funds in a registered plan, you won’t pay income tax on the money you make as long as that money stays in the plan. When you withdraw money from the plan, it will...

  • The 72 ranked problem, “Employee Turnover,” is a new entrant to the bottom 10 as it ranked 51st in 2008. The economic downturn ignited extensive layoffs by both large and small businesses. The number of businesses decreasing their labor force far outweighed those increasing it, leaving few alternative job opportunities for those who remained employed. This continues as the economic recovery remains anemic and business owners are hesitant to expand.

  • Although most car-sharing has been established, been carried on, and has grown in terms of numbers of participants, without any form of public support being provided, the presence of national support could enable car-sharing to develop more effectively. Certain legal restrictions hinder the development of car-sharing at present, although they are probably less of a hindrance than lack of awareness in different organizations which have the possibility to boost the use of car-sharing. Some antiquated legal hindrances to the development of car- sharing should be altered.

Indeed in Albania, Armenia, Germany, Norway, Poland, South Africa, the UK and BVI women score significantly less. There is a noticeable variation in financial literacy by age and income. In most...

  • Hence, the challenge is to include the development of stratification biomarkers into the concept of disease prevention and drug development. In addition, we should distinguish between biomarkers and assays. Biomarkers need to be qualified and properly detected before they can be used in the clinics. Therefore, the applicability of a qualified biomarker relies also on the development of a robust assay.

We have tried to organize the health promoting schools model programme in a way that characterises all constituents of the school structure as thoroughly as possible. This was supposed to help schools make these constituents well-defined parts of health promotion programmes. There could only be a few steps from such programmes to the schools’ individual projects that could under certain circumstances be called school curricula....

  • In all that we are working towards, we must also recognize physicians as consumers and realize and respect the necessity of their services. As absurd as it sounds, can you imagine a community without a physician? Their contribution to each community makes it essential that we offer solutions such as EHRs and proper public policy to help keep them in business. It is our experience that we must keep the physicians daily workflow at the fore-front of all decision-making when discussing how we may impact their offices and practice of medicine.

  • The Bank Board also attempted to attract new capital to the industry, and it did so by liberalizing ownership restrictions for stock-held institutions in April 1982. That change proved to have a dramatic effect on the S&L industry. 22 Traditionally, federally chartered stock associations were required to have a minimum of 400 stockholders. No individual could own more than 10 percent of an institution’s outstanding stock, and no controlling group more than 25 percent. Moreover, 75 percent of stockholders had to reside or do busi- ness in the S&L’s market area.
