Of interest to the infectious disease modeler is the frequency with which a disease will be introduced under the pipe model, and not introduced under the full model (and vice-versa). To quantify this, we looked at the difference in the rate of introductions from an origin to each particular destination under the two models under the assumption that everyone at the origin is infected with the disease. Using this metric, we found that in only 10% of routes will the rate of introductions be over- or underestimated by at least one person per day, and this over- or underestimation will tend to occur on the most traveled routes. In 2% of routes, the difference in rates is at least 10, and in 0.05% of cases is it at least 100. Only for four routes (JFK→LAX, LAX→JFK, ...

It varies a great deal depending on the shift youre working. The early shift is the most active. The patients are washed and prepared for the doctors rounds and then there are transfers and new admissions. Theres always something going on! The late shirt is a bit quieter, because the patients are already there. We prepare the patients who are to be operated on the next day; we care for them and their needs in the evening and night. It should be said that the night shift is not like that on a normal peripheral ward, where most of the patients are asleep. Many of our patients who have been on the intensive care unit before they come to us find the switch rather difficult: here everything is quieter and darker. That creates fears for some patients and then we need to be there for them.. How well do you get to know the patients? Medically speaking, very well. When we come on duty and when patients are transferred to us from the intensive care unit we get a very thorough briefing. We know when the ...

Diagnostic ultrasound is equivalent to a sophisticated fish finder. Sound waves project through a liquid interface and either rebound or penetrate through various structures depending on their density. The waves are portrayed on a screen with dark areas generally indicating fluid or torn tissue and light areas indicating dense structures such as bone and tendon or ligament. Ultrasound waves do not penetrate through air therefore ultrasound gel or alcohol must be used to provide contact between the scan head and the tissue being examined.. The combination of ultrasound and x-rays is used frequently to provide more information in many areas. In the past bone problems were typically investigated with x-rays and ultrasound was relegated to investigate soft tissue issues. Significant findings on radiographs require 30% to 40% bone loss. We now know that ultrasound is more sensitive for assessing the surface of bone. X-rays do not allow viewing of cartilage and ultrasound can see cartilage even better ...

Its remarkable that some strange guest should sweep through Earth like a hot wire through wax, and that no one would notice as it did so. But though the visitor was very fast and fairly heavy, it was also extremely small: a mass of as much as 10 tons squeezed into something about the size of a red blood cell. If a 10-ton asteroid fell to Earth at 400 kilometers per second, people would notice; something the size of a small car hitting the unyielding Earth at that speed would give up its kinetic energy in an explosion to rival that of a 200-kiloton nuclear weapon. But condensed to the size of a small amoeba, the same mass wouldnt cause anywhere near as much fuss. The fearsome momentum of the microscopic visitor would shatter the bonds between molecules directly in its path and push the bystanders aside. It would do this vigorously enough to melt a small tunnel as it passed, slicing through the rocky earth almost as easily as it passed through air and water.... So, what would it mean for Earth ...

To date, this study is the largest air travel survey of women with LAM, and provides some revealing, albeit retrospective, data on the experiences of air travel in women with LAM. It should be noted, however, that women who were waitlisted for or who had undergone lung transplantation for end-stage disease were excluded from this study, therefore findings may not generalise to women with more advanced disease. Nonetheless, the group of women who travelled by air had, on average, better dyspnoea scores than those who did not, and there was a wide range in values of dyspnoea scores for both women who flew and those who did not. Therefore, the participants include women with LAM who had differing severities of disease, thereby affirming the generalisability of our results.. Although hypoxaemia-related problems such as dyspnoea and chest pain occurred during air travel in women with LAM, these results yield an approximate risk of 2% for pneumothorax. Although the risk of pneumothorax is small, it is ...

Follow me on Instagram at sharpharmade! . Tuesday August 23, 2016 is Ride the Wind Day. "Theres no better feeling than the wind in your hair as you look out at a beautiful horizon. Ride the Wind Day is an excellent opportunity to marvel at all things flying, and perhaps take part in some flying yourself.

Created to celebrate the anniversary of the first man powered flight, Ride the Wind Day is a fun day that all members of the family can take part in. Some ideas for celebrating this special day include kite flying, windsurfing, hang gliding, making and sailing boats, watching birds soar through the sky or simply a picnic on a windy day, watching the wind in the trees. Children will love making paper airplanes or other flying toys and watching them zoom through the air." ^sPm - #sharpharmade Fr Days of the Year. #fit #linkinbio #lpt #tweet #twitter ...
Electric resistance heat can be supplied by centralized forced-air electric furnaces or by heaters in each room. Room heaters can consist of electric baseboard heaters, electric wall heaters, electric radiant heat, or electric space heaters. To learn about electric radiant heat and electric space heaters, see the radiant heating and small space heaters sections. It is also possible to use electric thermal storage systems to avoid heating during times of peak power demand.. Electric Furnaces. Electric furnaces are more expensive to operate than other electric resistance systems because of their duct heat losses and the extra energy required to distribute the heated air throughout your home. Heated air is delivered throughout the home through supply ducts and returned to the furnace through return ducts. If these ducts run through unheated areas, they lose some of their heat through air leakage as well as heat radiation and convection from the ducts surface.. Blowers (large fans) in electric ...
This ability to filter out extraneous sound and information is vital for paying attention and concentrating. John is not able to do this and every noise has the same importance or the same sound value.. John knows that he is supposed to be paying attention but other sounds, pieces of information or even thoughts keep intruding and demanding his attention. This has been an ongoing problem and good, prolonged attention has never properly developed.. One of the primary reasons for this is that John has an Auditory Processing difficulty described as hyper sensitivity to Bone Conduction - this was clearly seen when John completed a Listening Test.. We hear sounds in two ways, through Air Conduction i.e. our ears, and through Bone Conduction i.e. our bodies, (have you ever felt a sound in your body, perhaps the low bass sound in a disco, or the rumbling of lorry outside on the road? This is bone conduction). When the correct relationship between listening through Bone conduction and Air conduction ...
The most common causes of pneumonia include bacteria, viruses and other kinds of fungi that affect certain parts of the lungs of a human being. Is a highly contagious disease and has a tendency to spread through air particles. Healthy people can contract this disease through the breath and this leads the germ in their lungs and respiratory system that causes people to develop the disease.. People who have a weak immune system, such as the elderly and children and those people who have contracted other diseases such as cancer or HIV are prone to contracting this virus. Drinking excessive amounts of alcohol, smoking and work in unregulated temperature also increases the chances of a person who could develop pneumonia.. The influenza A and B usually attack the human body during the spring. Along with these two diseases, comes the synovial virus. Flu shot are usually administered to protect the person from the strain of virus that is trying to attack your system.. There are several symptoms of viral ...
The SARS Coronavirus causes general infection with Viremia, especially severe pneumonia and intestine infection. It is transmitted primarily through droplet infection. Due to its resistance to dryness, it can also be transmitted through air. It is thought that the incubation period of SARS is usually 2-10 days and the average is 5 days (Okada and Tashiro 2003). In the pandemic of 2002-2003, most countries reported a median incubation period of 4-5 days, and a mean of 4-6 days. In the incubation period, it is unlikely an infected person will spread the disease through droplet infection. The infectious period is thought to be about two weeks, with its peak from the 7th-10th day after infection (Okada and Tashiro 2003). Transmission efficiency appears to be greatest from severely ill patients who are experiencing rapid clinical deterioration, usually during the second week of illness. Maximum virus excretion from the respiratory tract occurs on about day 10 of illness and then declines to 0% by day ...
We leave bits of ourselves everywhere we go - skin cells, eyelashes, teardrops. We also collect bits of the universe as we pass through - air, dirt, a basil pesto chicken sandwich.

Most, if not all, marine mammals are highly dependent on underwater sound and are thus at risk of being affected by the increasing man-made noise levels in the oceans. Why is sound so important to marine mammals? Sound is transmitted very well through water, much better than through air and depending on its frequency, propagate…
Flu virus from bird. - Jumps to pigs. - Mutates. -Jumps to humans. - Causes problems for us. - Potential 2 Billion people can be affected. Q. So, who are at risk from this H1N1 virus?. A. Well, practically anyone and everyone is at threat as the virus spreads through air too. But people with diseases such as 1. HIV+ 2. Tuberculosis. 3. Diabetics. are at a much higher risk of catching this infection.. Q. So, is there any cure to this infection?. A. H1N1 is a virus, which are neither dead, nor exactly alive. Its hard to explain, but heres a simple one:-. "Outside, they exist as dead organisms, inside a host body, they become alive!". ...
Diffusion is the name for the way molecules move from areas of high concentration, where there are lots of other similar molecules, to areas of low concentration, where there are fewer similar molecules. When the molecules are evenly spread throughout the space, it is called equilibrium. Imagine half a box filled with yellow balls and the other half filled with blue ones. If you set the box on something that vibrates, the balls will start to move around randomly, until the blue and yellow balls are evenly mixed up.. Think about the way pollutants move from one place to another through air, water and even soil. Or consider how bacteria are able to take up the substances they need to thrive. Your body has to transfer oxygen, carbon dioxide and water by processes involving diffusion as well.. Lots of things can affect how fast molecules diffuse, including temperature. When molecules are heated up, they vibrate faster and move around faster, which helps them achieve equilibrium more quickly than ...
A few weeks ago, a friend of ECGs held a limoncello making party. Although he lives smack dab in the middle of the city, hes got a lemon tree out back, and has more lemons that he could possibly use himself. So, he picked half of them, asked all his friends to bring a liter of Everclear or Vodka (after making it myself a couple times now, I prefer Everclear over vodka for a cleaner lemon flavor), and threw a party. Imagine the scene: a room full of Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, and English voices swimming through air rich with the scent of hundreds of lemons being simultaneously zested by happy people. Several party-goers arrived hoping it was a limoncello drinking party, their eyebrows raised and curling lips expectant, but, when discovering that the limoncello wouldnt be ready to drink for a few months, had faces that melted into disbelief. A few bottles of wine and beer sufficed for those who were disappointed; however, most of us were drunk on the lemon-oil-rich-air. My hands were ...

If the discomfort of air travel has got you down, the prospect of speedier flight will be music to your ears... or rather, a sonic boom to your ears. Colorado-based startup Boom Technology is developing a prototype of a plane that flies at more than twice the speed of sound, capable of making the trip from New York City to London in just 3.4 hours. Last week, Virgin Galactic signed on to help develop and build the plane, meaning a better era of supersonic air travel could be just around the corner ...

Please visit www.AirAccess30.org and share your story. PVA Annual Advocacy and Legislation Seminar. The PVA Government Relations Department held its annual Advocacy and Legislation Seminar, from March 6-9, 2017, in Washington, D.C. The seminar serves as an opportunity to bring in representatives from every PVA chapter to Washington to learn about the policy priorities of the organization and then to carry that message to their representatives and senators in Congress.. This years seminar focused on two main areas. The Advocacy portion discussed in great detail our continued efforts, and the work we have ahead of us, on the Air Carrier Access Act, and efforts to improve air travel for people with disabilities. A panel of experts we have worked with on this issue included representatives from the Department of ...
Stretch your calves, avoid alcohol and coffee, and dont depend on aspirin. Those are some of the ways to reduce the risk of dangerous blood clots while travelling on airplanes, according to new recommendations.
One of the main problems with many studies of humans at high altitude is that it is frequently impossible to isolate hypobaric hypoxia as the only variable parameter. In our case, for example, we were unable to rigorously control nutritional intake, exercise training regimen, and, in final stages of the program, any metabolic artifacts due to air travel. However we feel that these factors did not contribute to observed pre- and postexposure brain metabolic differences for several reasons. In the first place, it is worth emphasizing that air travel preceded both sets of PET measurements and moreover that all subjects underwent medical examination on arrival and on departure from the General Clinical Research Center. No problems or differences between the first and second visits were noted and an impression of fit individuals, all in good health, predominated our discussion with the medical personnel performing these examinations. Second, during the actual 63-day training for altitude operations ...

At this point in time and at this point in our evolution, I think its -FAR- to early to make any assumptions about anything of this nature. On the issue of space and time, I think people also must remember that its only been within that last 100 years that we humans have actually broken the bonds of gravity to achieve air flight and only within the last 50 that weve been able to achieve space flight. To say "we cant do it" based on what we know -now- is incredibly foolish and naive. Its incredibly arrogant to assume that we "know everything" about this stuff when we are only just beginning to scratch the surface of understanding. We humans have been around for a few thousand years, but most of what we know and understand about our planet and the universe around us has only came in the last hundred years or so. Just 500 years ago, the "industrial revolution" hadnt even taken place yet…the idea of something as basic today as a personal computer was well beyond the realms of science ...
The potentially deadly strain, known as XDR-TB, was first identified about 18 months ago in South Africa, where it killed 52 of 53 infected people. Though health officials said the risk of widespread infection within the U.S. public is low, "we felt it was our responsibility to err on the side of abundant caution" and keep the Georgia man in isolation, said Dr. Julie Gerberding, the CDCs director. CDC officials said they were scrambling to locate the airline crews and dozens of passengers from the two flights the patient boarded: Air France Flight 385 from Atlanta to Paris on May 12, and Czech Air Flight 0104 from Prague to Montreal on May 24. Health officials said the crews and any passengers seated near the patient are at highest risk and should be immediately tested for TB. The man, who knew before his trip that he was infected with a form of TB that was difficult to treat but was not aware he had the deadlier strain, drove from Montreal back into the U.S. on May 24. By then, tests confirmed ...
Hit by a powerful missile, it had no chance. Blown out of the air, the jet went down. All passengers and crew were killed.. Quickly, almost immediately, in the confusion of the immediate aftermath, with tempers up and the loved ones just learning of the tragedy, the politicians did what they do best.. They talked and made rhetorical fists. Some demanded revenge, and if not revenge, they called for swift, decisive action. Some were sincere, but others used the chaos to push their own agendas or those of their nations.. And who was to blame for the missile attack on the civilian jetliner and the deaths of all those people?. The United States of America.. Because it was one of two U.S. surface-to-air missiles fired from the USS Vincennes that destroyed Iran Air Flight 655 on July 3, 1988.. The Iranians were outraged. The Soviet Union pressed for advantage in the Middle East. Many nations expressed sympathy for the dead, and then they used the tragedy to leverage their agendas at our expense.. Our ...
In finance, model risk is the risk of loss resulting from using insufficiently accurate models to make decisions, originally and frequently in the context of valuing financial securities. However, model risk is more and more prevalent in activities other than financial securities valuation, such as assigning consumer credit scores, real-time probability prediction of fraudulent credit card transactions, and computing the probability of air flight passenger being a terrorist. Rebonato in 2002 considers alternative definitions including: After observing a set of prices for the underlying and hedging instruments, different but identically calibrated models might produce different prices for the same exotic product. Losses will be incurred because of an incorrect hedging strategy suggested by a model. Rebonato defines model risk as "the risk of occurrence of a significant difference between the mark-to-model value of a complex and/or illiquid instrument, and the price at which the same instrument ...

The plane John and I were to fly on, another 747, was flown by some ex-fighter jock. He wanted to give us a real good look at the wrecked jumbo, so on climb-out, he pushed over and hugged the crest of the hill outside of town. As the plane crested the ridge, you could hear treetops scrape the belly of the plane. I cant remember why, but hed invited us into the cockpit, (like they used to could, back when air travel was fun,) and there out the window on the upslope across the valley, was the broken fuselage and wings of a red 747 and I thought "Great, now theres going to be two," but miraculously, we didnt crash ...

Hot on the heels of our previous blogpost, albeit completed before, wed like to offer our admiration and congratulations to the not-so Oardinary Boys, Oli Glanville and George Randell, for successfully Rowing the Atlantic - 3,000 miles in a very small boat. And they didnt just row it, they smashed it: they are now the second fastest pair in history to row the Atlantic. Oli and George took part in the 2017 Talisker Atlantic Challenge, setting off from San Sebastian in the Canary Islands at 6am UTC on 14 December 2017. They made land in English Harbour, Antigua and Barbuda at 22:01 UTC on 20 January 2018, just 37 days, 16 hours and 1 minute later. This is an extraordinary challenge: 2 hours rowing, 2 hours rest, for a period of up to 60 days. Relentless. Non-stop. Burning 10,000 calories a day, consuming 6,000. You lose 20% of your body weight. 1.5 million oar strokes. It would require paragraphs here to give even a flavour of the dedication, training, strength - both physical and mental - ...
We have now reached a total raised of US$200,000,000 since AMF started and the donation that took us past that milestone was one from New York, USA! This equates to the funding of more than 91 million nets to protect 165 million people and an expected impact of more than 30 million cases of malaria and 65,000 deaths averted.. We have also just passed 439,000 donations received, with this coming from over 121,485 people in 187 countries! As always, our sincere thanks to everyone for their support and generosity which is both humbling and thrilling. Humbling, given the repeated support of donors and the magnitude of some of the donations, and thrilling in knowing what these donations can achieve. I am pleased to report we have raised more than US$3,000,000 in the last month from more than 6,487 donations and this has made a dent in the funding we continue to raise to fund the need for further nets in the Democratic Republic of Congo, one of the two most malarious countries in the world, where we ...
Aviation Safety Network: CVR transcript of the August 31, 1983 accident of Korean Air Flight 007, a Boeing 747-230B off Sakhalin Island (Russia).
Air travel has become an important part of modern life. Many more women are now employed in jobs that involve frequent flying, and, in fact, most flight attendants are women of reproductive age. In parallel, with the average age of starting a family steadily increasing, many more pregnant women have medical conditions that might be exacerbated by air travel.. Naturally, the most compelling studies on reproductive risks originate from research in flight attendants. In a cross-sectional survey among current and former flight attendants, Lauria et al 1 did not detect higher rates of miscarriage associated with active work. They did, however, find higher rates of menstrual irregularities among current flight attendants and 60% higher rates of infertility. 1 The lack of risk of spontaneous abortions was corroborated by others. 2 However, flight attendants who experienced spontaneous abortions reported working substantially more flight hours (74 hours per month) than did flight attendants who had live ...
STEM contains a model of Global Air Travel that covers 100% of commercial airports in the U.S. and about 80% of commercial airports world wide. The model was calibrated using data on individual tickets within the United States for all of 2007 from the U. S. Department of Transportation Research and Innovative Technology Administration Bureau of Transportation Statistics (RITA-BTS). Tickets give the origin and destination of full trips, rather than individual flights. The RITA-BTS ticket data (DB1BTicket from the Airline Origin and Destination Survey) are a sample of 10% of U.S. tickets from reporting carriers in that year. A complete description of the model is given in the following paper: [http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0004403 The Cost of Simplifying Air Travel When Modeling Disease Spread. The paper describes how we used U.S. ticket data from 2007 to compare a simplified "pipe" model, in which individuals flow in and out of the air transport system based on the ...

While the incidences of many other infectious diseases have declined over the past decade, the number of cases and outbreaks of dengue virus have continued to increase. The spread of dengue to new areas is likely due in large part to trends in air travel, researchers now report in PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases.. Dengue virus affects as estimated 390 million people around the globe each year, and can cause symptoms ranging from a mild fever and headache to severe low blood pressure. The virus has mostly caused disease in tropical and subtropical areas of the world, but a 2014 outbreak in Japan broke that pattern. Overall, the geographic area affected by dengue has been growing in recent years.. In the new work, Huaiyu Tian and Bing Xu, both of Beijing Normal University, China, together with colleagues from the University of Oxford and elsewhere analyzed the spread of dengue viruses in Asia from 1956 to 2015. They used 2,202 genetic sequences of dengue viruses, collected in 20 countries or ...

A pelvic ultrasound is a noninvasive (the skin is not pierced) procedure used to assess organs and structures within the female pelvis. A pelvic ultrasound allows quick visualization of the female pelvic organs and structures including the uterus, cervix, vagina, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. Doppler ultrasound may also show blood flow in certain pelvic organs.. Ultrasound uses a transducer that sends out ultrasonic sound waves at a frequency too high to be heard. When the transducer is placed at certain locations and angles, the ultrasonic sound waves move through the skin and other body tissues to the organs and structures within. The sound waves bounce off the organs like an echo and return to the transducer. The transducer picks up the reflected waves, which are then converted into an electronic picture of the organs.. Different types of body tissues affect the speed at which sound waves travel. Sound travels the fastest through bone tissue, and moves most slowly through air. The speed at ...

Extra precaution should be taken for children, who are more susceptible to smoke because their respiratory systems are still developing and they breathe in more air (and consequently more pollution) per pound of body mass than adults.. When driving your car in smoky areas, keep your windows and vents closed. Air conditioning should only be operated in the recirculate setting.. People with respiratory problems and chronic heart disease should:Stay inside as much as possible, with doors, windows and fireplace dampers shut and preferably with clean air circulating through air conditioners and/or air cleaners and purifiers. Use air conditioners on the recirculation setting so outside air will not be moved into the room.. Due to the higher levels of pollutants in some areas, there is a possibility of experiencing increased symptoms. If you are experiencing symptoms, please try to contact your physician. If you cannot, asthma patients can follow the asthma action plan developed with their physician. ...
Ultrasonic testing uses the same principle as is used in naval SONAR and fish finders. Ultra-high frequency sound is introduced into the part being inspected and if the sound hits a material with a different acoustic impedance (density and acoustic velocity), some of the sound will reflect back to the sending unit and can be presented on a visual display. By knowing the speed of the sound through the part (the acoustic velocity) and the time required for the sound to return to the sending unit, the distance to the reflector (the indication with the different acoustic impedance) can be determined. The most common sound frequencies used in UT are between 1.0 and 10.0 MHz, which are too high to be heard and do not travel through air. The lower frequencies have greater penetrating power but less sensitivity (the ability to "see" small indications), while the higher frequencies dont penetrate as deeply but can detect smaller indications.. The two most commonly used types of sound waves used in ...

The Sultan Flow measurement system operates by transmitting an ultrasonic signal from its transducer towards the liquid being monitored. The reflected signal or echo is received by the transducer and processed. The time between transmission of the ultrasonic signal and reception of the echo is measured, and using the speed of sound through air, the distance from the transducer to the liquid level is calculated. Flow through the channel or structure is then calculated from the level measurement and the user entered properties of the channel.. The Sultan Flow system uses sophisticated software to locate and track the correct echo without being affected by echos from fixed objects or changes in the liquid surface. When the liquid level or surface conditions change, the system follows preselected signal tracking parameters. In the event of a total loss of signal, the system adopts signal recovery routines to relocate the correct liquid level.. The system employs automatic gain control to compensate ...
Newly released security camera footage from Argentina shows a train flying through air after hitting a bus and smashing into another locomotive on the other side of the tracks.
Sound is the propagation of pressure waves through air, spreading out from a source like ripples spread from a stone tossed into a pond. A microphone, or the human ear for that matter, transforms these passing ripples of pressure into an electric signal. Right, this is middle school science class, everyone remembers this. Moving on. That audio signal is a one-dimensional function, a single value varying over time. If we slow the scope down a bit... that should be a little easier to see. A few other aspects of the signal are important. Its continuous in both value and time; that is, at any given time it can have any real value, and theres a smoothly varying value at every point in in time. No matter how much we zoom in, there are no discontinuities, no singularities, no instantaneous steps or points where the signal ceases to exist. Its defined everywhere. Classic continuous math works very well on these signals. A digital signal on the other hand is discrete in both value and time. In the ...
While the present harms through air pollution are pretty darn worrying, ensuring Eskom and Sasol clean up their act is also about ensuring a liveable environment and climate in the future, rather than one defined by climate chaos. The sort of climate chaos that will push large parts of South Africa into drought and in many places when the rainfall does come, it will be less frequent and in violent downpours that will cause flooding and soil erosion. Many of those impacts, like that of our current pollution, will fall disproportionately on the poor and vulnerable sectors of our society.. As Oxford University economics professor Dieter Helm argues, "the overwhelmingly immediate question in climate change is how to stop and then reverse the dash-for-coal, and to do it quickly". That is because coal accounts for the majority of global greenhouse gas emissions and generally emits three times more greenhouse gas emissions than other fossil fuel sources of energy, never mind renewables. In South ...

LONDON (Reuters) - Britons are the worlds worst offenders when it comes to carbon emissions from air travel, according to figures published on Wednesday by market research company Global TGI.. Not only are Britains average air emissions per adult the highest out of the 20 countries covered at 603 kg per year, they are also a third higher than second-placed Irelands 434 kg and more than double the 275 kg from third-placed Americans.. There are clearly a number of reasons for it, some of which include the British weather and people wanting to get away from that, some of which are to do with our being an island, said spokesman Geoff Wicken.. !ADVERTISEMENT! But the rapid growth in low-cost flying has undoubtedly been a factor, he told Reuters.. The British government has pledged to cut the countrys carbon emissions as part of the battle against global warming, but it is also backing rapid expansion of air travel.. It has come under relentless pressure from climate campaigners to curb ...

In any aircraft journey the parts of the engine go through a complex combination of stresses and vibrations. We need to know how the inherent cracks in the metal are going to be affected," Professor Tong explained.. "The safety of aircraft depends on engineers knowing when the cracks are going to become a problem so that plans can be made to replace components during regular inspection cycles. The scheduling of these inspections critically depends on the precise knowledge of crack growth mechanisms and growth rate.". Professor Tong said the research team would use novel experimental and computational methods to create a comprehensive computer modelling program that will show in detail how the components react under stress.. The Royal Society funding will allow the Portsmouth team to join forces with materials scientists from the University of Siegen in Germany.. "We will be working with the Siegen scientists, using a powerful transmission microscope (TEM) to examine the complex dislocation ...

NOTES AND LETTERS Confirmation of Cerebral Air Embolism with Computerized Tomography Te-Long Hwang, MD," Richard Fremaux, MD,F E. Simon Sears, MD,* Bruce MacFadyen, MD, Brian Hills, DSc, ScD," Jon T. Mader, MD,? and Bruce Peters, M D t Paradoxical cerebral air embolism is an unusual complication following insertion of a subclavian intravenous catheter. W e report an ultimately fatal case in a 75-year-old man in whom the diagnosis was confirmed by computerized tomographic (CT) scanning. W e postulate that air passed through a physiologically closed but anatomically patent foramen ovale. A 75-year-old black man with an ileocutaneous fistula had an alimentation catheter inserted into the right subclavian vein while in the Trendelenburg position. After completion of the maneuver and assumption of a sitting position, the patient became unresponsive in midsentence. Neurological evaluation revealed right conjugate gaze preference with full conjugate excursion to the left upon left caloric stimulation ...
Occasional air travel is safe for most pregnant women, and most airlines will allow women to fly up to 36 weeks of pregnancy. Make sure to wear your seatbelt during the flight, and take steps to ease the discomforts of prolonged travel and sitting. Frequent air travel during pregnancy increases the risk of fetal exposure to cosmic radiation. If you are a pregnant pilot, aircrew member, or other frequent flier, check with your employer about flying restrictions ...
In 1907 Ernest Rutherford published "Radiation of the α Particle from Radium in passing through Matter."[3] Hans Geiger expanded on this work in a communication to the Royal Society[4] with experiments he and Rutherford had done, passing α particles through air, aluminum foil and gold leaf. More work was published in 1909 by Geiger and Marsden[5] and further greatly expanded work was published in 1910 by Geiger.[6] In 1911-1912 Rutherford went before the Royal Society to explain the experiments and propound the new theory of the atomic nucleus as we now understand it. The key experiment behind this announcement happened in 1910 at the University of Manchester, as Ernest Rutherfords team performed a remarkable experiment in which Hans Geiger and Ernest Marsden under his supervision fired alpha particles (helium nuclei) at a thin film of gold foil. The plum pudding model predicted that the alpha particles should come out of the foil with their trajectories being at most slightly bent. ...
Discussion Medical doctors may be involved in the screening (management) of patients at risk for commercial air travel by performing a pre-flight evaluation, or may encounter an inflight emergency while travelling. Awareness of medical conditions associated with a risk of flying, the complications thereof, and pre-flight evaluation and recommendations are of the utmost importance to ensure safe air travel for at-risk passengers. Patients with relevant conditions should be informed of the risk of flying, as ignorance can lead to disastrous complications; many such passengers may be unaware of the health implications of air travel.2 Individuals with various pulmonary diseases need special pre-flight evaluation and possible supplemental oxygen delivery during a flight, as the reduction in partial pressure of oxygen (PO2) experienced in commercial aviation may exacerbate their symptoms.1 Such pulmonary conditions include chronic obstructive airway disease, asthma, restrictive and interstitial lung ...
Hundreds of people worldwide suffer from Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) every year as a result of taking extended airplane flights as well as traveling by bus, vehicle, truck or train. DVT is caused by a blood clot building in a heavy vein, usually in the leg. The danger besides pain and swelling localized to the leg are usually clots, known as lung embolism, that break loose and travel to the heart or lung. Progression of a clot is increased due to decreased blood circulation at high altitudes and cramped airplane conditions for prolonged periods of time making exercise difficult. Normal movement of lower extremity muscles is essential for smooth flow of blood coming back from the legs. The medical term of "economy class syndrome" can be used to describe the deep vein thrombosis which might follow air travel. Although it is a greater risk for prolonged travel it can occur with trips of as little as two hours even just in travelers who are in good health ...
Yes*: All medical certificates we require from passengers to perform their trip must be issued at most 10 days prior to the travel date and that medical certificate will be valid from the return trip for up to 1 month in the absence of changes to the health condition.. NOTE: In cases where there is a difference in the number of days to fly, the treating physician and Airport Sanitation, the opinion of Sanitation prevails. Remember that for any air travel after any of the abovementioned situations, you must comply with the rest period set forth therein, otherwise you may endanger your life and that of other occupants of the aircraft.. ...
