Because of the wide range of life threatening illnesses treated in intensive care, it has been a difficult area for managed care organisations and performance improvement staff to measure. Hence, cost-cutting efforts generally have been avoided, stated Jean Chenoweth, executive director of the Solucient Leadership Institute. However, this study shows that the pay off for improving quality of care and reducing costs is enormous for everyone, including the patients, the hospitals and the payors.. ICUs account for ten percent of hospital patient beds but twenty-five percent of a hospitals cost structure, explained Mike Breslow, M.D., executive vice president of Baltimore-based VISICU, which sponsored the study. The ICU is where patients are dying and where health care is spending huge amounts of money, so it is critical to assess what hospitals can do differently. U.S. hospitals treat about 5 million ICU patients a year, a number expected to double during the next fifteen years as the ...

The possibility of transfusion was actually suggested as early as the sixteenth century by Hieronymus Cardanus and Magnus Pegalius, whilst Andreas Libavius (1615) actually described a suitable technique, although it is uncertain whether he carried out the experiment that he described. Most modern work in this field dates, however, from the publication, in 1628 of Harveys Exercitatio Anatomica de Motu. Cordis et Saneuinis in Animalibus. The first reported successful transfusions from one animal to another, usually ascribed to Francesco Fall, was carried out shortly after the publication of Harveys work being performed in 1654. This was soon followed by further experiments, carried out in England by such persona as Sir Christopher Wren, Sir Robert Boyle Edmund King and Thomas Cox. In 1665 a second successful transfusion was carried out by Richard Lower in. England who transfused the blood of one dog into another.. ...
Description: The September 11th attack and subsequent intentional release of anthrax spores via the U.S. postal system have focused policymakers attention on the preparedness and response capability of the nations public health system. The anthrax attacks put a tremendous strain on the U. S. public health infrastructure, an infrastructure that many experts argue has been weakened by years of neglect and under-funding. To better understand the preparedness gaps that exist, as well as the disparate functions and agencies that define public health in this country, the Congressional Research Service (CRS), in conjunction with George Washington Universitys National Health Policy Forum (NHPF), convened a seminar on October 26, 2001, entitled, The U.S. Health Care System: Are State and Local Officials Prepared for Bioterrorism? How Should the Federal Government Assist? ...

The right to legal capacity is essential to personal well-being, social inclusion, and enjoyment of human rights because it recognizes a persons right to exercise control over their own personal, health care, and property/financial decisions. The right to legal capacity is generally recognized to have two components - the capacity to have rights and the capacity to act or to have power over ones personal, property and health care decisions. Canadians with intellectual, cognitive and psychosocial disabilities are extremely vulnerable to having their legal capacity restricted or removed all together. Across the country, formal or informal reliance on substitute decision making arrangements and ...

She received her PhD from Harvard University in 1989 and then held a faculty position at Yale University until her recent move to the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

In particular, she has contributed to the striking revelation that competing species can coexist if ecological processes such as dispersal and interaction occur over small spatial scales, which may be the case for non-transitive communities. The classic non-transitive system involves a community of three competing species satisfying a relationships similar to the childrens game rock-paper-scissors, where rock crushes scissors, scissors cuts paper and paper covers rock.
