Python-based dynamic scheduling assistant for atmospheric measurements by Bruker instruments using OPUS.

Atmospheric remote sensing by instruments such as spectrometers and interferometers often requires scheduling that is dependent on external factors, for example; time and solar (or lunar) zenith angle. Such instruments manufactured by Bruker often use the software package OPUS, which, while useful, is not flexible enough for automatic, repeated, atmospheric measurements of this nature. In this brief paper, we describe ASAP, a Python tool developed to run our network of Fourier transform interferometers in N...

Using Telemedicine to Address Crowding in the ED.

Some health systems are piloting telemedicine solutions in the ED to address crowding and decrease patient wait times. One new program, implemented at the Lisa Perry Emergency Center at New York Presbyterian (NYP) Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York, involves offering low-acuity patients the option of visiting an off-site physician via telemedicine hookup. Administrators note that the approach can get patients in and out of the ED within 30 minutes, and patients have thus far been highly satisfied with...

A New Zenith Tropospheric Delay Grid Product for Real-Time PPP Applications over China.

Tropospheric delay is one of the major factors affecting the accuracy of electromagnetic distance measurements. To provide wide-area real-time high precision zenith tropospheric delay (ZTD), the temporal and spatial variations of ZTD with altitude were analyzed on the bases of the latest meteorological reanalysis product (ERA-Interim) provided by the European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF). An inverse scale height model at given locations taking latitude, longitude and day of year as inpu...

Analysing the Zenith Tropospheric Delay Estimates in On-line Precise Point Positioning (PPP) Services and PPP Software Packages.

As Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signals travel through the troposphere, a tropospheric delay occurs due to a change in the refractive index of the medium. The Precise Point Positioning (PPP) technique can achieve centimeter/millimeter positioning accuracy with only one GNSS receiver. The Zenith Tropospheric Delay (ZTD) is estimated alongside with the position unknowns in PPP. Estimated ZTD can be very useful for meteorological applications, an example is the estimation of water vapor content in...

Interpersonal Conflict and Organizational Commitment Among Licensed Practical Nurses.

The shortage of nursing professionals in the United States is unquestionable. This shortage, which is predicted to continue into the foreseeable future, is a particularly salient problem within the nursing profession. This is especially true for long-term care facility administrators who not only are faced with the challenge of increasing numbers of aging residents but also regularly struggle with turnover among more cost-effective nursing staff, such as licensed practical nurses (LPNs). The primary purpose...

Team-based Pod System Reduces Lengths of Stay for Treat-and-Release Patients.

To boost performance on a range of metrics, the 55-bed ED at NYU Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY, transitioned to a pod system in August 2016. The approach, which is designed to foster team-based care, involves assigning physicians and nurses to designated geographic areas throughout the day, minimizing the movement of physicians as well as the need for phone communication. When coupled with other changes, including the introduction of point-of- care testing, the pod initiative has enabled the ED to...

Contributors to Operating Room Underutilization and Implications for Hospital Administrators.

Operating rooms (ORs) are an important source of hospital revenue, and utilization rate is a key determinant of OR efficiency. Multiple factors contribute to OR underutilization, and OR managers may have biased views about which factors contribute most to OR underutilization. We examined various factors leading to OR underutilization at one academic tertriary care center. Data were collected retrospectively from over a 12-month period. Contribution to OR underutilization was measured in terms of hours of OR...

The role of selective stenting for superior mesenteric artery scallops during fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair.

Stenting of small fenestrations of the Zenith fenestrated endograft (ZFEN; Cook Medical, Bloomington, Ind) is necessary during fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair (FEVAR) of complex abdominal aortic aneurysms to avoid malalignment.
