Summary of "Snow avalanche deaths in Switzerland from 1995 to 2014-Results of a nation-wide linkage study."

More than 20 people die each year in snow avalanches in Switzerland. Previous studies have primarily described these victims, but were not population based. We investigated sociodemographic factors for avalanche mortality between 1995 and 2014 in the entire Swiss resident population.

Avalanche-like behavior of up-conversion luminescence by nonlinear coupling of pumping rates.

Here we report and discuss the avalanche-like up-conversion behavior in absence of the avalanche. We experimentally observed significant changes in the slope of the curve for the intensity dependence ...

Lost Annual Productivity Costs Due to Uterine Cancer Deaths in the United States in 2014.

An estimated 11,350 uterine cancer deaths are projected to occur in the United States in 2018. We constructed an economic model to estimate the annual productivity costs associated with uterine cancer...

Temporal trends in incidence of childhood cancer in Switzerland, 1985-2014.

Incidence of childhood cancer increased in most countries worldwide, but reasons are unclear. This study investigates trends of childhood cancer incidence in Switzerland from 1985 to 2014.

Avalanche victims in cardiac arrest are unlikely to survive despite adherence to medical guidelines.

Our goals were to describe and analyse the medical management and clinical course of avalanche victims in cardiac arrest (CA), focusing on adherence to international recommendations on avalanche victi...

Postnatal deaths from BIRTH to 365 days after birth in a given population. Postneonatal mortality represents deaths between 28 days and 365 days after birth (as defined by National Center for Health Statistics). Neonatal mortality represents deaths from birth to 27 days after birth.

An Act prohibiting a health plan from establishing lifetime limits or annual limits on the dollar value of benefits for any participant or beneficiary after January 1, 2014. It permits a restricted annual limit for plan years beginning prior to January 1, 2014. It provides that a health plan shall not be prevented from placing annual or lifetime per-beneficiary limits on covered benefits. The Act sets up a new competitive health insurance market giving tens of millions of Americans the same choices of insurance that members of Congress will have. It aims to bring greater accountability to health care and to control cost of health insurance premiums.
