Trade-offs between location and waiting times in the provision of health care: the case of elective surgery on the Isle of Wight. (1/12)

BACKGROUND: Recent UK government documents have stated that, within the National Health Service, consumers should be more involved in decision-making. This study considered the technique of discrete choice conjoint analysis (DCCA) for eliciting community views regarding the importance of reducing waiting times. More specifically, the study aimed to establish whether residents living on the Isle of Wight are prepared to travel to the mainland for elective surgery where waiting times are shorter but travel costs may be greater, and, further, if residents are willing to travel, what reduction in waiting time and increase in travel costs would be acceptable. METHODS: A DCCA questionnaire was sent to a random sample of 1,000 individuals living on the Isle of Wight. RESULTS: Seventy-eight per cent of respondents were willing to travel to the mainland for elective surgery. Of these, 48 per cent always chose the mainland and 30 per cent traded between island and mainland, depending on the levels of waiting time and travel costs. Whereas 'traders' preferred the Isle of Wight, they would forgo their preferred location if waiting times were reduced by at least 3.9 months, and they were willing to pay over 12 for a 1 month reduction in waiting time. Different combinations of waiting time reductions and travel cost increases that were acceptable to traders were estimated. CONCLUSIONS: Carrying out elective surgery on the mainland offers the potential to reduce waiting lists for island residents. The majority of respondents would be willing to travel to the mainland. However, one-fifth of respondents were not willing to travel to the mainland for elective surgery. The preferences of this group are important in policy decisions. More generally, the paper demonstrates the potential application of DCCA to public health issues.  (+info)

The incidence of childhood leukaemia around the La Hague nuclear waste reprocessing plant (France): a survey for the years 1978-1998. (2/12)

BACKGROUND: A previous study has suggested an increased incidence rate of leukaemia from 1978 to 1992 in people aged 0 to 24 years and living in the vicinity of the La Hague nuclear waste reprocessing plant without considering age and cytological type. SETTING: The Nord Cotentin region (France) and the island of Alderney (United Kingdom). STUDY OBJECTIVE: To describe the occurrence of leukaemia for each age group and cytological type from 1978 to 1998 in the same area, using accurate reference incidence rates and adequate estimation of the at risk population. DESIGN: A geographical study of incidence using three zones defined according to their distance from the site (0 to 10 km: Beaumont-Hague electoral ward, 10 to 20 km and 20 to 35 km) has been conducted. The risk of leukaemia was estimated from the standardised incidence ratio (SIR) of the number of cases observed to the number expected. Exact 95% confidence intervals (CI) have been computed. PARTICIPANTS: All people under the age of 25 years living in the study region between 1978 and 1998. MAIN RESULTS: The observed number of cases of leukaemia in the study region as a whole was consistent with the expected value (SIR=1.03; 95%CI: 0.73, 1.41). No cases were observed on Alderney. The SIR in the Beaumont-Hague electoral ward was 2.17 (95%CI: 0.71, 5.07). The highest SIR was observed in the 5 to 9 years age group (SIR=6.38; 95%CI: 1.32, 18.65). This consists in acute lymphoblastic leukaemia cases. CONCLUSION: This study indicates an increased incidence of leukaemia in the area situated at less than 10 km from the plant. Monitoring and further investigations should be targeted at acute lymphoblastic leukaemia occurring during the childhood incidence peak (before 10 years) in children living near the La Hague site and may be other nuclear reprocessing plants.  (+info)

High MHC diversity maintained by balancing selection in an otherwise genetically monomorphic mammal. (3/12)

The San Nicolas Island fox (Urocyon littoralis dickeyi) is genetically the most monomorphic sexually reproducing animal population yet reported and has no variation in hypervariable genetic markers. Such low levels of variation imply lower resistance to pathogens, reduced fitness, and problems in distinguishing kin from non-kin. In vertebrates, the MHC contains genes that influence disease resistance and kin recognition and may be under intense balancing selection in some populations. Hence, genetic variation at the MHC might persist despite the extreme monomorphism shown by neutral markers. We examine variation of five loci within the MHC of San Nicolas Island foxes and find remarkably high levels of variation. Further, we show by simulation that genetic monomorphism at neutral loci and high MHC variation could arise only through an extreme population bottleneck of <10 individuals, approximately 10-20 generations ago, accompanied by unprecedented selection coefficients of >0.5 on MHC loci. These results support the importance of balancing selection as a mechanism to maintain variation in natural populations and expose the difficulty of using neutral markers as surrogates for variation in fitness-related loci.  (+info)

Population genetic structure of and inbreeding in an insular cattle breed, the Jersey, and its implications for genetic resource management. (4/12)

The Jersey is a ubiquitous and successful breed of cattle that originates from the UK Channel Island of Jersey. While the breed has been exported extensively, no imports have taken place to the island since 1789, leading to a concern regarding possible losses of genetic diversity and increased inbreeding. We have conducted the first large-scale genetic analysis of the Jersey cattle using only samples from the island. A total of 223 cattle from all parishes except one were genotyped for 12 microsatellite loci. The average number of alleles per locus and expected heterozygosity were found to be comparatively high (n(A)=4, H(e)=0.64) with respect to that observed in a number of continental breeds. Only breeds that have been upgraded and are therefore the result of admixture are clearly more variable than the Jersey. We also found a significant but limited amount of genetic differentiation between parishes (F(st)=0.013), or even between farms (F(st)=0.035) despite an apparent lack of movement. This is confirmed by the application of two recent statistical methods. A Bayesian partition analysis shows that the most probable value of K, the number of possible hidden partitions, is 1 (P approximately 0.98). K=2 has a much lower probability (P approximately 0.02) while other values are essentially zero. Similarly, we were able to show that there was no support for departure from panmixia other than due to population structure, and thus that there is sufficient background gene flow across the island to overcome local drift. Overall, it appears that the current level of genetic diversity and its distribution within the island means it is unnecessary to import unrelated genetic material to the island for management purposes.  (+info)

The complement system in cryoglobulinaemia. Interaction with immunoglobulins and lipoproteins. (5/12)

Serum from a patient with an IgM-lipoprotein cryoglobulin, both before and after removal of the cryoprecipitate at 0 degrees C, had extremely low levels of whole complement (C), C1, C4 and C2, while amounts of the remaining components were normal or only slightly reduced. The cryopredipitate, when added to fresh normal human serum, reproduced this pattern of C fixation. Separation of the patients's serum at 37 degrees C into its lipoprotein, IgG and IgM fractions revealed that the IgM alone would precipitate at 0 degrees C. This precipitation was unaffected by the patients's IgG, but was markedly enhanced by extremely small amounts of the patient's d less than 1-075 lipoprotein fraction or of homologous very low density lipoprotein (VLDL). Aggregation occurred even at 37 degrees C in the presence of VLDL. Fixation of semi-purified human C1 paralleled these results closely: it occurred with the patient's IgM alone at 0 degrees but not at 37 degrees C, while IgM in the presence of the patient's lipoprotein, or of VLDL from normal serum, fixed C1 strongly at 37 degrees as well as at 0 degrees C. Fab dimers and monomers prepared from the patient's IgM did not aggregate in the cold, even in the presence of lipoprotein, and did not inhibit the aggregation of intact IgM in the presence of VLDL, at any temperature. All three highly purified IgM cryoglobulins, and three of four IgG cryoglobulins, fixed C1 strongly. The IgG preparation which failed to fix C1 was the only one which had lost its cryoprecipitability during purification. Measurement of C3 or whole C levels may be an insensitive method for detecting C fixation in cryoglobulinaemia. It is suggested that analysis for C1, C4 or C2 should be employed instead.  (+info)

A: With some difficulty, we suspect. There was a considerable interest in the use of magnets on acupuncture points after a couple of presentations at our annual conferences well over a decade ago, but there has been a rather long period of silence thereafter. We think that there may well be one or two members who have become converts, but since the use of magnets is not within our usual scope of practice there hasnt been the development of a special interest group of which we are aware, as there is in the treatment of certain specific patient groups.. There is no doubt that there may be some substance in claims for efficacy, as this paper from around the same period demonstrates. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18818562. We think the best way to track down whether there is someone who uses magnets may well be to ask some of the acupuncture product suppliers whether they maintain any records of training which they have offered in the use of magnets.

Jersey is an island measuring 46 square miles (118.2 square kilometers), including reclaimed land and intertidal zone, which is about 0.7 times the size of Washington, DC in the United States.. It is located in the English Channel, approximately 12 nautical miles (22 kilometers from the Cotentin Peninsula in Normandy, France, and approximately 100 miles (140 kilometers) south of Great Britain. The States of Jersey is the largest and southernmost of the Channel Islands.. The island is a plateau mantled with wind-blown silt. It has a low-lying terrain on south coast, with some rocky headlands, rising gradually to rugged picturesque cliffs along the north coast. Coasts are reef-strewn, and a breakwater in St Aubins Bay protects St Helier harbor. There are sand dunes along the west coast, and small valleys running north-south intersect the island. Very large tidal variation exposes large expanses of sand and rock to southeast at low tide. The highest point is Les Platons at 470 feet (143 ...

Santa Rosa Island (SRI), part of Channel Islands National Park off the coast of Santa Barbara, is home to thousands of native and endemic flora and fauna. While full of unique island endemics, Santa Rosa Island has an extensive ranching history. A sheep and cattle ranching business was operated from the mid-1800s until 1998 and a deer and elk hunting operation ran until 2011. Together these operations led to extensive ecological degradation of the island ecosystem as a result of the grazing caused by ungulates. In December of 2015, the Cloud Forest Restoration Project began with the goal of restoring the island ecosystem through the initiation of active restoration techniques on a key ridgeline of the island, Soledad Ridge. Active restoration techniques and treatments include the installation of wattles for erosion control, fog fences to harvest water from fog, and the establishment of native plants. This study focuses on the impact of three different restoration treatments on the germination and
With around 34,000km (21,000 miles) of lines, the National Rail passenger network of the United Kingdom is one of the densest and most used railway networks in the world; it is certainly not a niche market method of transport. Given the population density of the United Kingdom and the resultant inefficiency of its highway infrastructure, the United Kingdom has a relatively undeveloped express bus network; the train is by far the preferred mode of choice for those without a car (automobile) and popular with those having their own transport as the price of fuel is very high and the roads congested. Flying can be useful if you want to reach the more remote parts of Scotland, the Scottish Islands and places like the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands; but for most long distance journeys the British would not even contemplate using the (expensive and relatively irregular) plane services. Unlike North America, the rail network is comprehensive: almost all towns of importance and all cities, are served by

Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary provides habitat for a wealth of biological diversity, outstanding recreational opportunities and spectacular scenery. Every organism that resides within or moves through the sanctuary depends upon clean water, as do all our commercial and recreational uses.. Poor water quality can cause illness or disease, impair condition and reproductive capacity, and decrease productivity in marine organisms. It can also endanger human users of the sanctuary. Sources of water quality impairment in the sanctuary are land-based discharges from the mainland and the islands (e.g., runoff can include sediment, bacteria, and agricultural-based chemicals such as pesticides and herbicides), vessel discharges from recreational, commercial, and industrial vessels (e.g., sewage, bacteria, and marine debris), and discharges associated with oil production (Engle 2006). Nonpoint source pollution from the mainland may reach the eastern portion of the sanctuary (Anacapa and Santa ...

The recent announcement that the island night lizard - protected under the Endangered Species Act since 1977 - has met recovery goals and no longer needs federal protection is the culmination of a three-decade effort to reverse a century of habitat and rare species destruction on the islands.. The extraordinary recovery of the slow-growing four-inch lizards is also the latest proof that the Endangered Species Act, which marks its 40thanniversary this year, works quite effectively when we fully commit to ...

To the Editor: Since 2000, Salmonella enterica serovar Paratyphi B variant Java (S. Java) with resistance to antimicrobial drugs has been isolated with increasing frequency from patients in Scotland, England, Wales, and the Channel Islands. For England, Wales, and the Channel Islands, drug-resistant S. Java was found in humans: 25 in 2000, 36 in 2001, 49 in 2002, and 4 in 2003 (January 1-March 31). These isolates made up 35% of 325 strains of S. Java in human infections over the study period (L.R. Ward, unpub. data). A range of drug-resistant spectrums (R-types) have been observed, e.g., ASSpSuTm, ASSpSuTmCp, ASSpSuTTm, ACSSpSuT (A, ampicillin; C, chloramphenicol; S, streptomycin; Sp, spectinomycin; Su, sulphonamides; T, tetracyclines; Tm, trimethoprim; Cp, ciprofloxacin) (1). In general, isolates of S. Java of R-types ASSpSuTm, ASSpSuTmCp, and ASSpSuTTm, appear to be associated with imported poultry. In contrast, infections with isolates of R-type ACSSpSuT have not been associated with poultry, ...
Previously CRPR 1B.1; taxonomic distinctiveness from var. brevipes is uncertain. Originally treated as a Channel Islands endemic, CRPR 1A plant, but plants determined to be var. hassei have recently been found throughout the range of the species; needs further study. Rediscovered on the Palos Verdes Peninsula (LAX Co.) by A. Sanders in 1976, where plants are an extreme variant and only a few remain; the occurrence was diminished by grading in the 1930s. Rediscovered on SCM Is. in 2005, where previously only known from a single wild specimen that died in 1908. The only other wild specimen known from the Channel Islands (SCT Is.) died in 1936.

Image: Rick Snyders Vegetable Resource Page This is not unusual. Weve found similar omissions at the vast majority of small-town science-related museums we visit. We praise the Tomato Museums historical intentions, as well as the fact that it has been successfully launched and beautifully sited. To be fair, unless any new museum receives professional advice and ample funding for exhibit design, it often takes many years for a museum to mature and realize its founders vision. Also, other tomato towns and festivals have no tomato museums at all, and this one charges no fee. To date, the worlds best known museum of this kind is on the Channel Island of Guernsey-a UK crown dependency. As if to illustrate that tomato museums really can be fascinating for children and do improve over time, Laura Solon (Times Online, 2008) writes: I dont think I will ever be able to dissociate holidays entirely from the Tomato Museum in Guernsey. We had many family holidays to the island, which if you are aged ...
In Japan, the main island of Honshu also has several sites that contain obsidian obtained from Kozu Island (Izu Islands) by 32,000 years ago ( Habu, 2010). Overall, the evidence from Sunda and Sahul demonstrates. significant maritime voyaging, ocean navigation, and island colonization by the Late Pleistocene. Somewhat later in time, colonization of Californias Channel Islands at least 11,000 B.C. (all B.C./A.D./B.P. dates are calibrated calendar ages unless otherwise BAY 73-4506 order noted) required boats and was achieved by some of the earliest people to live in the Americas (Erlandson et al., 2011a and Erlandson et al., 2011b). Early coastal sites in California, elsewhere on the Pacific Rim, and in Chile have helped support the coastal migration theory for the initial peopling of the Americas (Erlandson et al., 2007). Colonization of several Mediterranean islands. occurs about this same time, with hunter-gatherers or early agriculturalists expanding to several islands and traveling to Melos ...

Homo floresiensis likely evolved from a population of Homo erectus that migrated into South East Asia. There is evidence from Sangiran and Mojokerto in Java (Indonesia) for three cranial specimens of Homo erectus from between 1.6 to 1.8 million years ago. Populations of erectus are known to have been in Zhoukoudian, China until sometime between 500,000 and 230,000 years ago. One population may have ended up trapped on the Indonesian island of Flores as the seas rose following the Gunz or Mindel glaciation (roughly 690,000 and 125,000 years ago respectively). The species then underwent a selection pressure for insular dwarfism, in which individuals are selected for smaller stature in order to adapt to the more limited resources that island habitats offer (examples include dwarf elephants from Malta or Crete, Channel Island mammoths and the pygmy dinosaur Europasaurus ...
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Coroners reports for the 34 victims who died in a scuba boat fire off the Southern California coast last year show they died of carbon monoxide poisoning before they were burned, authorities said Thursday.. All thirty-three scuba divers and one crew member died in the Sept. 2 fire aboard the Conception, anchored off Santa Cruz Island. The only survivors were the captain and four other crew members, who were asleep above deck.. The Santa Barbara County coroners reports list smoke inhalation as the cause of death for the 34 victims, all of whom were in the below-deck bunk room when the fire broke out. The manner of death is considered accidental, said Lt. Erik Raney of the Santa Barbara sheriffs office. The pre-dawn blaze swept through the boat anchored off the Channel Islands for a three-day excursion over Labor Day Weekend. Passengers included a girl celebrating her 17th birthday with her parents and friend, an environmental scientist and a professional photographer.. Some ...
Amazon Page Link. We landed and the pilot popped the forward hatch. We thanked the pilot on the way out. Once on the tarmac, we accessed the base computer. As expected, now that our contract had expired the only access we had was what any Imperial citizen would have had. Which also meant we werent authorized quarters even in transit. Our choice was outrageously expensive tourist accommodations on Santa Cruz Island, the same thing down by Pellew Base, or housing somewhere off the Imperial reservations. So we took a portal to Channel Islands Base then from there to the Port of Long Beach, where US Customs was located. At least this time there was no difficulty getting Asina into the country. Once through customs and immigration, we contacted my mother.. It was early morning in California, and the June Gloom hung overhead like usual, a low gray overcast that would burn off late morning. I used to hate it, but now I realized it helped keep the days from getting too hot. Otherwise coastal Southern ...
The report summarizes the initial work conducted on the rock art pigments for important, primarily Chumash Indian, sites in the vicinity of California. The purpose of this study was the analysis of fifteen red and yellow pigment samples by polarized light microscopy and energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy energy dispersive. Further work concerning the characterization of these pigments was carried out by X-ray diffraction and the pigments were primarily identified as red ochres and yellow ochres. X-ray powder diffraction work was carried out on a number of the pigment microsamples with the result that many of them proved to be admixtures of quartz and haematite. Components such as goethite or lepidocrocite were comparatively less common in this material suggesting that the source of the pigment was either a relatively pure haematite or that some conversion to haematite had been deliberately created. Common impurities from the Santa Barbara Channel Island areas include albite or ...
A Soyuz rocket lifted off from French Guiana on Thursday, launching four satellites owned by O3b Networks nearly 5,000 miles above Earth to expand access to high-speed Internet in the developing world.. The addition of four new spacecraft grows O3bs fleet to a dozen satellites, and the company based in Britains Channel Islands has plans to purchase and launch more satellites in the next few years.. O3b kicked off commercial service Sept. 1, and the satellites launched Thursday will officially join the fleet in February.. Its expanding our network, said Steve Collar, CEO of O3b Networks, in a phone interview from the French Guiana launch base. It takes us to more than 100 gigabits up in orbit, and that allows us to bring a lot more capacity to our customers and cope with the demand that were seeing in the market..

Guernsey cattle, breed of dairy cattle developed on the islands of Alderney, Guernsey, and Sark near the north coast of France. First imported to the United States in about 1830, they are fawn-colored with white markings and are of medium size. Their milk is golden in color and rich in vitamin A. The average milk yield is a little higher than that of the Jersey, but the butterfat content is slightly lower.

Stress testing (ST) was undertaken as part of the Guernsey Financial sector assessment Program (FSAP) Update in order to assess the resilience of the Guernsey financial system to a variety of potential strains. The approach taken was a simulation of the effect of a potential double-dip recession on solvency of Guernsey banks and insurance companies. The STs assess the sensitivity of banks and insurance companies to single-factor shocks to risk types affecting solvency and liquidity position of institutions. The mission recommends that future STs should be risk-based and that macroprudential analysis should be run on a regular basis.

The literature increasingly supports the position that elective surgery on poorly prepared chronic pain patients is not smart and ultimately in no-ones best interest. Just as patients with ischemic heart disease, obstructive lung disease, or diabetes can and need to be optimized prior to surgery, so too should chronic pain patients. The complex dynamics of chronic pain require a priori intervention - targeting enhanced recovery before surgery.
I was born with a cleft palate and split uvula. My mother had great difficulty feeding me through the first year and in May 1981 I had a diaphragmatic hernia repaired. In October 1981 the cleft palate was repaired. It was at this point that the floppiness (hypotonia) was initially noticed by doctors.. The next hospital visit was in 1986. Orthopaedic work was required on feet to aid walking and to straighten a crooked leg (knock knee). This was successfully completed. It was great getting the specially made boots from England in the post!! But the Salamander shoes I wore as a child were another story all together!. In 1994 I had elective surgery on my Pigeon Chest (pectus carinatum) which protruded to quite a size. Obviously as a teenager at this stage this was very important to me. Surgery was undertaken to attempt to correct it, ligaments between ribs were removed until the chest wall collapsed. This surgery was largely successful though I still dont have the perfect flat chest I wish ...
Malpractice. In Jacksonville Florida a group of 45 OBs will limit services they provide starting May 2. The cause is the lack of general surgical backup in the community. They will no longer perform non emergency gynecology procedures. This covers 200,000 patients. The major general surgical group will stop doing elective surgery on May 2 due to malpractice concerns. Three of the 45 OBs in the group have given up OB due to malpractice concerns. May 2 is the last day of the current legislative session. One of the hospitals has discontinued screening mammography due to lack of surgical backup. The last pediatric neurosurgeon has also folded camp and moved. The general surgeons represent about 1/3 of the general surgeons on call. They will stop seeing new patients but will continue to follow their post op patients until June 30 when their malpractice coverage ends.. Another general surgical group has followed suit in Jacksonville and will not practice after May 2. This group of four surgeons is ...

Taking their name from a mis-heard Rolling Stones lyric, Green Seagull are the latest band to burst out of Londons burgeoning neo-psych scene. A shared love for late 60s baroque psych and 12-string jangle brought Paul Nelson and Paul Milne together last year to write songs. And before long they had crafted more songs than they knew what to do with, so they recruited Sarah Gonputh (keyboards) and Carlos Redondo (drums) to form Green Seagull. They started recording demos on an old cassette 4-track that immediately grabbed Mega Dodos John Blaneys attention, who immediately signed them to the label. On June 16, 2017, Mega Dodo releases a Green Seagull single with two songs Scarlet and They Just Dont Know and then a full length album by the end of the year. So what does this 5 minutes 58 seconds teaser sound like? Scarlet is a dreamy psych song with trippy organ that has a Pink Floyd Lucifer Sam vibe. And They Just Dont Know is a high energy take on The Byrds jangling guitar psych ...

Aristotle (384-322 BCE) defined the soul, or Psūchê (ψυχή), as the "first actuality" of a naturally organized body,[81] and argued against its separate existence from the physical body. In Aristotle's view, the primary activity, or full actualization, of a living thing constitutes its soul. For example, the full actualization of an eye, as an independent organism, is to see (its purpose or final cause).[82] Another example is that the full actualization of a human being would be living a fully functional human life in accordance with reason (which he considered to be a faculty unique to humanity).[83] For Aristotle, the soul is the organization of the form and matter of a natural being which allows it to strive for its full actualization. This organization between form and matter is necessary for any activity, or functionality, to be possible in a natural being. Using an artifact (non-natural being) as an example, a house is a building for human habituation, but for a house to be ...
