  6. Tendências no processamento de frangos de corte: uso racional da água

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ricardo Lacava Bailone

    Full Text Available RESUMO Atualmente o uso racional da água vem sendo tema de discussão perante órgãos governamentais e não governamentais ao redor do mundo. Seguindo essa tendência, leis cada vez mais severas devem ser implantadas em relação ao uso desse bem natural. Em um frigorífico de frango, o uso da água ocorre de forma generalizada ao longo de todo o processo industrial. Nesse contexto, o atual estudo teve o objetivo de comparar o consumo de água em um frigorífico brasileiro de frangos de corte (grande porte com modelos já propostos e utilizados em outros países com o intuito de identificar soluções para mitigar perdas provenientes de sua má gestão. Concluiu-se que alterações em alguns pontos-chave do processamento possibilitariam à indústria o uso mais sustentável da água, como substituição da eletronarcose por insensibilização a gás, diminuição da dimensão do tanque de escaldagem ou mudança no processo, substituição do pré-resfriamento por imersão em água por pré-resfriamento a ar, redução da renovação de água nos tanques resfriadores, alterações no sistema de geração do frio em ambientes climatizados, assim como o reúso total ou parcial da água.

    Full Text Available Resumo O objetivo deste artigo é descrever o processo da inserção do farmacêutico na equipe de uma Unidade Básica de Saúde e os resultados na promoção do acesso e uso racional de medicamentos. Trata-se de estudo descritivo, transversal, realizado em unidade de atenção primária do município de São Paulo. As atividades do farmacêutico foram avaliadas em relação à estruturação e organização do serviço, melhoria do padrão de prescrição médica, elaboração de método de orientação e implantação de serviços farmacêuticos clínicos. A análise estatística foi realizada empregando o teste Qui-Quadrado de Pearson, com nível de significância de 5%, e o ODDs Ratio, quando comparados os períodos anterior e posterior à intervenções e resultados entre os anos de 2010 e 2011. A atuação do farmacêutico apresentou resultados estatisticamente significativos na redução da falta de medicamentos; melhora da qualidade da prescrição (com aumento do número de prescrições atendidas; redução do número de medicamentos prescritos entre os pacientes em seguimento farmacoterapêutico; e, comparando-se os anos 2010 e 2011, as recomendações de mudanças na farmacoterapia passaram a ter maior nível de aceitação. O farmacêutico contribuiu efetivamente para o acesso e a promoção do uso racional de medicamentos.

  9. Por que o uso racional de medicamentos deve ser uma prioridade? Why rational drug use must be a priority?

    Daniela Silva de Aquino

    2008-04-01

    Full Text Available A Organização Mundial de Saúde diz que há uso racional de medicamentos quando pacientes recebem medicamentos apropriados para suas condições clínicas, em doses adequadas às suas necessidades individuais, por um período adequado e ao menor custo para si e para a comunidade. Porém, o que se observa, mostra uma realidade bastante diferente. Pelo menos 35% dos medicamentos adquiridos no Brasil são feitos através de automedicação. Os medicamentos respondem por 27% das intoxicações no Brasil e 16% dos casos de morte por intoxicações são causados por medicamentos. Além disso, 50% de todos os medicamentos são prescritos, dispensados ou usados inadequadamente, e os hospitais gastam de 15 a 20% de seus orçamentos para lidar com as complicações causadas pelo mau uso dos mesmos. A proposta de alívio imediato do sofrimento, como em um passe de mágica, é um apelo atraente, mas tem seu preço. Este preço nem sempre se restringe ao desembolso financeiro e pode ser descontado na própria saúde. Os requisitos para o uso racional de medicamentos são muito complexos e envolvem uma série de variáveis, em um encadeamento lógico. Para que sejam cumpridos, devem contar com a participação de diversos atores sociais: pacientes, profissionais de saúde, legisladores, formuladores de políticas públicas, indústria, comércio, governo.According to the World Health Organization, rational drug use means that patients receive medicines appropriate to their clinical needs, in doses that meet their individual requirements, for an adequate period of time, and at the lowest cost to them and their community. However, as far as one can see, the reality is very different. In Brazil, at least, 35% of medicines are purchased for self-medication. Medicaments are responsible for 27% of intoxications in Brazil and for 16% of deaths due to poisoning are caused by medicaments. Moreover, 50% of medicaments are prescribed, dispensed or used inappropriately

    Full Text Available Este artículo expone como la farmacoeconomía contribuye a incrementar los niveles de eficiencia en la esfera de la utilización de los medicamentos. Mediante los lineamientos de trabajo que persigue esta disciplina, se podrán llevar a vías de realización diferentes aplicaciones en el campo de la prestación de los servicios sanitarios, y en el proceso de obtención de nuevos fármacos por parte de la industria farmacéutica. Como resultado del enfoque actual que le dan las autoridades sanitarias a la farmacoeconomía, la industria farmacéutica a escala internacional se ha empezado a interesar por dichas técnicas analíticas y a utilizarlas para desarrollar sus estrategias de investigación-desarrollo, producción y comercialización de sus productos; lo que constituye uno de los esfuerzos iniciales más importantes realizados, encaminados a lograr que la evaluación económica comience a incorporarse al proceso integral de la circulación de los medicamentos. Como conclusión de este análisis, se puede afirmar que la evaluación farmacoeconómica contribuye a darle un uso más efectivo y eficiente de los medicamentos que se emplean en los tratamientos para combatir las distintas enfermedades. En el contexto nacional del sistema sanitario, la farmacoeconomía permite articular de forma cohesionada, los intereses de la industria farmacéutica con los del sector de la prestación de los servicios de salud, demostrando así la aplicación de esta útil herramienta de trabajo en la toma de decisiones sanitarias; y poder elaborar de esta manera, las políticas y estrategias para el uso racional de los medicamentos, sobre la base de su efectividad clínica comprobada y los costos de la farmacoterapia empleada.This paper is a discussion about pharmacoeconomics contributes to increase the efficiency levels in the field of drug use.

    Full Text Available O artigo aborda o uso racional de medicamentos (URM sob um ponto de vista da economia. O URM, para ser implementado, implica custos e envolve a apropriação de conhecimentos e mudanças de conduta de diversos agentes. A dificuldade na adoção da prática do URM pode estar relacionada a problemas de escassez, assimetria de informação, informação incompleta, incertezas nas decisões clínicas, externalidades, preço-tempo, incentivos para prescritores e dispensadores, preferências dos prescritores e utilidade marginal. Assim, cabe às autoridades sanitárias, entre outras entidades, regular, reduzir e controlar essas falhas que poderão introduzir ineficiências na assistência farmacêutica, bem como produzir riscos à vida humana.The present article approaches rational drug use (RDU from the economical point of view. The implementation of RDU implies in costs and involves acquisition of knowledge and behavioral changes of several agents. The difficulties in implementing RDU may be due to shortage problems, information asymmetry, lack of information, uncertain clinical decisions, externalities, time-price, incentives for drug prescribers and dispensers, drug prescriber preferences and marginal utility. Health authorities, among other agencies, must therefore regularize, rationalize and control drug use to minimize inefficiency in pharmaceutical care and to prevent exposing the population to unnecessary health risks.

    2003-06-01

    Full Text Available Los antibióticos ß-lactámicos son los compuestos más ampliamente usados para tratar infecciones adquiridas en el hospital o en la comunidad. Sin embargo, la resistencia a estos antibióticos en bacterias Gram negativas y Gram positivas se ha incrementado, lo cual limita su eficacia terapéutica. Se debe estar alerta a este fenómeno y seleccionar la terapia de acuerdo con el mecanismo de resistencia probable del germen aislado. La lectura interpretativa de los patrones de susceptibilidad permite un enfoque más racional del problema de resistencia y se convierte en una guía fundamental para el manejo de situaciones específicas. Dada la complejidad de los mecanismos de resistencia, es indispensable que el laboratorio identifique los microorganismos según especie y determine la susceptibilidad de un número razonable de antimicrobianos. La resistencia a ß-lactámicos en Enterobacteriaceae se debe principalmente a la producción de ß-lactamasas codificadas cromosómicamente o en plásmidos. Los mecanismos de impermeabilidad y la producción de bombas de exclusión molecular son los más comunes en microorganismos 'no fermentadores', por lo cual la terapia debe responder a estos fenómenos. En bacterias Gram positivas existen varios mecanismos involucrados: producción de proteínas de unión a penicilina (PBP alteradas, síntesis de nuevas PBP o producción de ß-lactamasas. Se discuten aquí las opciones terapéuticas basadas en el conocimiento de los mecanismos de resistencia.

    Full Text Available O uso indiscriminado de antimicrobianos na atenção primária à saúde gera aumento na resistência bacteriana, morbidade, mortalidade e gastos com saúde decorrentes de processos infecciosos. Este trabalho teve por objetivo avaliar o impacto de um Programa de Atenção Farmacêutica no uso racional de antimicrobianos em uma Unidade Básica de Saúde no Centro-oeste de São Paulo, Brasil. Para isto foi realizada uma análise comparativa do padrão de prescrição de antimicrobianos no período de um ano antes e após a implantação do programa. Os dados obtidos demonstraram que o Programa de Atenção Farmacêutica promoveu redução do número de prescrições com antimicrobianos, do número médio de antimicrobianos por prescrição e do número de prescrições destes medicamentos para um mesmo paciente nos espaços de tempo ≤ sete dias e de oito a 30 dias. Observou-se, ainda, a diminuição da prescrição de antimicrobianos de segunda escolha e com toxidade elevada, e da ocorrência de efeitos clínicos indesejados decorrentes de interações medicamentosas clinicamente relevantes. Os resultados obtidos permitiram concluir que a implantação do Programa de Atenção Farmacêutica na Unidade Básica de Saúde “Cidinha Leite” promoveu grande melhoria no uso racional de antimicrobianos.The indiscriminate use of antimicrobials in primary health care leads to increased bacterial resistance, morbidity, mortality and health expenditures resulting from infectious processes.

    This work shows the steps for implementing a program of rational use of electricity in a pine sawmill processing through energy diagnosis and also provide an energy efficiency index, the reference consumption in Kw.h power and volume of timber in cubic meters. The study was conducted in a sawmill located at Itapeva, southwest of Sao Paulo. The region's economic potential is based on the processing of wood with the main export destination. Much of the lumber does not have advanced technology, because it may present with excessive spending power. The species used are Pinus elliottii and Pinus taeda. We collected data on the electrical installation of the mill and the main parts of the installation as tables and distribution lines and equipment engines were studied. The diagnostic results show that while the industry had a good general appearance, electrical installations and equipment using electric power for its functioning need more care, both in maintenance and in use. An energy efficiency program, if effected, could reduce the cost of the process and provides environmental benefits by less need for electric power generation. (author)

    Full Text Available Na antiguidade, o tratamento de enfermidades que acometiam os homens era essencialmente por meio de plantas medicinais. Com a revolução industrial no século XIX, essa alternativa de tratamento caiu em desuso. Nas últimas décadas, entretanto, voltou a ser empregada, devido a fatores como a dificuldade de acesso aos serviços médicos e farmacêuticos e o custo elevado dos medicamentos sintéticos. Consequentemente, o número de relatos de eventos adversos relacionados a drogas vegetais aumentou. Seu uso é comum na atenção primária à saúde e a maioria dos usuários acredita que seja seguro. A toxicidade das plantas medicinais ou de medicamentos que as contenham é um assunto de saúde pública, uma vez que podem desencadear desde reações adversas até intoxicações graves, além de poder interagir com fármacos convencionais. Existem poucos dados de segurança das drogas vegetais e, muito deles, não foram submetidos aos estudos de fase clínica. A monitoração dos efeitos indesejados por meio da implantação de um sistema de farmacovigilância que inclua as espécies vegetais medicinais se faz necessária. Contudo, no Brasil, a avaliação de segurança de drogas vegetais e seus derivados está no começo e, portanto, é necessário que ações sejam tomadas para que se estruture um sistema robusto e eficaz. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In antiquity, the treatment of diseases affecting humans was usually performed medicinal plants.

    Full Text Available En el diseño racional de pavimentos flexibles se utilizan modelos de fatiga para estimar los esfuerzos y deformaciones admisibles, los cuales son comparados con los esfuerzos y deformaciones actuantes calculadas con modelos de respuesta. Los modelos de fatiga desarrollados para diferentes materiales y condiciones de servicio producen resultados diferentes, lo que genera la necesidad de realizar calibración de modelos para condiciones locales de uso. En Colombia no se han realizado esfuerzos de calibración de modelos de fatiga para pavimentos, los diseñadores de pavimentos se ven obligados a recurrir a leyes de fatiga desarrolladas en otros países, para materiales y condiciones diferentes a las nacionales, lo que genera imprecisiones en el dimensionamientos de los pavimentos y su desempeño a largo plazo. El objetivo de esta investigación es evaluar la incidencia de diferentes leyes de fatiga en el dimensionamiento y costos iniciales de construcción de pavimentos flexibles. Para esto se evaluaron dos estructuras diseñadas por el método racional, empleando el modelo de respuesta Bisar y diferentes leyes de fatiga. Se encontró gran variación en dimensiones y costos, revelando que el desarrollo y calibración de modelos de fatiga puede conllevar a ahorros significativos en la construcción de pavimentos en el país.

  19. O discurso racional cartesiano na segunda prova da existência de Deus (The racional cartesian discourse on the second proof of God’s existence

    Full Text Available Esta reflexão pretende mostrar o discurso racional cartesiano na segunda prova da existência de Deus. Para tanto, Descartes se depara com uma pergunta central: qual  a causa da existência da res cogitans que é finita e possui a ideia de infinito? A resposta é encontrada na desproporcionalidade ontológica entre o finito e o infinito. Essa desproporcionalidade é elucidada mediante dois conceitos: o princípio de causalidade que determina que a causa deve ser igual ou superior a coisa causada e o princípio de criação contínua em que a causa que criou o ser não é menor do que aquela que o conserva em sua existência. As objeções destacadas no texto contra os argumentos cartesianos foram escolhas deliberadas que servem para elucidar a importância da racionalidade como fundamento para a prova da existência de Deus. A relação entre o  entendimento e a liberdade, apresentada  no texto sucintamente, justifica a impossibilidade da res cogitans ser causa de si mesma.Palavras-chave:  Infinito; finito; causalidade; criação contínua AbstractThis essay aims to show the rational Cartesian discourse on the second proof of God’s existence. In order to do so, Descartes faces a core question: which is the cause for the existence of the res cogitans that is finite in front of the idea of the infinite? The answer is found in the ontological disproportionality between the finite and the infinite. This disproportionality is elucidated through a couple crucial concepts: the principle of causality, which determines that the cause must be equal or superior to the caused thing and the principle of continuous creation, in which the cause that created the being is not inferior than the one that preserves its existence. The objections highlighted in the text against the Cartesian arguments were deliberated choices, to elucidate the relevance of rationality as the foundation for the proof of God’s existence.

    After security incidents in recent years, there is a growing need for security at airports, ports and prisons. In the fight against terrorism, smuggling and illegal entry of material, X-rays are used for non-invasive inspection of people. Traditionally, surveillance has been done exclusively on people by metal detection techniques or by intimate search. But in today's globalized world, and given concern for international security, governments are considering introducing a new series of technologies at airports and prisons, which reveal what an individual can carry under their clothes when traveling or entering visitation in prisons. Body inspection equipment, also called body scanners or 'body scanner', which can detect metallic and non-metallic objects hidden in a person's body, such as weapons, drugs, precious stones, cell phones, etc. This work shows the types of body inspection equipment, the radiation doses involved, and the radiation protection aspects that are critical to maintaining the safety of all users.

    Trace or ultratrace analyses require that the HPLC equipment used, including the detector, be optimal for such determinations. HPLC detectors are discussed at length in Chapter 4; discussion here is limited to the rest of the equipment. In general, commercial equipment is adequate for trace analysis; however, as the authors approach ultratrace analysis, it becomes very important to examine the equipment thoroughly and optimize it, where possible. For this reason they will review the equipment commonly used in HPLC and discuss the optimization steps. Detectability in HPLC is influenced by two factors (1): (a) baseline noise or other interferences that lead to errors in assigning the baseline absorbance; (b) peak width. 87 refs

    Full Text Available A indústria farmacêutica, agências de publicidade, empresas de comunicação e o comércio varejista têm implementado uma intensa estratégia de marketing com vistas a elevar o consumo de medicamentos. A revolução científica e tecnológica, por sua vez, altera o padrão de enfrentamento terapêutico de doenças e seu impacto no setor saúde faz surgir o fenômeno da medicalização e da lógica de que estes bens e serviços devam ser considerados mercadorias como as demais. Esta realidade impõe um desafio: na utilização de medicamentos, até onde prevalece a exigência terapêutica estritamente voltada para o controle de enfermidades e começa a pressão mercadológica a estimular o seu consumo? A exploração do valor simbólico do medicamento pela grande mídia passa a representar um poderoso instrumento de indução de hábitos para elevar seu consumo. A magnitude do problema levou a que o Estado há muito busque regular a propaganda de medicamentos por meio de leis, decretos e códigos, que vêm sendo desrespeitados ao longo do tempo. Em 30 de novembro de 2000, a Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária (Anvisa publica a Resolução de Diretoria Colegiada (RDC 102, tentando novamente impor limites ao setor. Para além de um maior esforço fiscalizador, este trabalho discute o próprio modelo regulador adotado, que não tem conseguido alcançar o objetivo a que se propõe.The pharmaceutical industry, advertising agencies, communication companies, and the retail market have implemented an intense marketing strategy aimed at boosting medication consumption. The scientific and technological revolution, in turn, changed illnesses treatment standards and its impact on the health sector gave rise both to the medicalization phenomenon and to the logic that these goods and services should be considered as merchandise, as any other. This fact brings a challenge about: in medication use, to what extent should therapeutic requirements aimed strictly at controlling diseases prevail? At what point does market pressure begin encouraging drug consumption? The media's exploitation of the symbolic value there is behind the drugs is a powerful instrument to induce behavior to increase product consumption. The magnitude of the problem has forced the State to regulate drug advertisements via laws, decrees, and codes which, through the years, have been being disrespected. On November 30 2000, the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa published Collegiate Board Resolution (CBR 102, once again in an attempt to impose limits on the sector. Over and beyond the stepped-up inspection efforts, this article discusses the regulation model itself, which has been unable to reach the goals it was designed to achieve.

    In slaughterhouses, operations developed since the 'ante-mortem' until to the storage of the product, are heavily dependent on electric energy and responsible for the final product quality. The study of the size related to the consumption of electrical energy and the associated cost of this energy in the stages of the slaughter, are important not only for the entrepreneur but also for the final consumer. This way, aiming at to accomplish a preliminary diagnosis in relation to the use of the electric power, was measured values of the main electric parameters of the transformers slaughterhouse to know preliminary the use of this energy inside of the establishment. Later, in the continuation of this work, detailed and complemented studies will be accomplished in the several processes aiming at to diagnose, to analyze and to propose solutions to lead to the rational use of the electric power, without interfering, or to maintain, the quality of the final product in the lines of production of the poultry slaughterhouse, including the storage process that uses of chambers of cooling and freezing.

    Full Text Available Este artigo procura discutir a relação entre racionalidade e crença para analisar o significado dos processos de tomada de decisão de longo prazo no pensamento de Keynes. A análise da ação racional é probabilística e remete tanto à nossa ignorância sobre o futuro como às nossas capacidades cognitivas, impondo como questão central a formação de crenças racionais (rational belief. O marcos conceituais desta reflexão remetem ao estudo da relação entre o Tratado de Probabilidade e a Teoria geral, bem como à crítica de Frank Ramsey ao Tratado e sua aceitação por Keynes. As crenças racionais, de forma consistente com a tradição do pragmatismo contemporâneo, são entendidas como "regras de ação'' e não tentativas de representaçãO da realidade. Os processos de fixação de crenças (individual e coletiva são múltiplos e a crença apresenta-se coo uma "disposição a agir'' que só pode ser adquirida em relação à cada tipo específico de ação. É a partir da crença que podemos definir as imagens sobre o futuro e o estado de confiança que assegure as âncoras para as ações racionais submetidas a incerteza. Neste contexto, a articulação entre os conceitos de expectativas, convenções e animal spirits define o marco central para o entendimento da relação entre crenças racionais e decisões de longo prazo.The paper discusses the relation between rationality and beliefs to analyze the long-term decision making process in Keynes' contribution. A rational decision must take into account our ignorance about the future as well as our cognitive capacity.

Durante el primer ensayo se trabajó con 120 gallinas Hy-line en postura avanzada, usando 3 raciones con 74%, 70.5% y68.5%de maíz amarillo como material prima básica y niveles de 0%, 6% y 9% de harina de guandul respectivamente. Aunque a medida que se aumentó el nivel de guandul hubo una pequeña baja en la producción de huevos, esta diferencia no fue significativa, como tampoco lo fue el (consumo de alimento y la coloración de la yema. Esta última fue prácticamente igual en los 3 lotes, debido al alto contenido de maíz amarillo en cada una de las raciones. Para el segundo ensayo se trabajó con 160 gallinas de igual raza, pero con 2 -3 meses de postura y 4 tratamientos: 3 en base a sorgo con 0%, 9% Y 12 % de harina de guandul y un cuarto lote con ración comercial, molida para evitar diferencias. La producción de huevos presentó una diferencia significativamente superior, al nivel 0 .05 %, de los lotes 0%y comercial sobre 9% y 12%. En cuanto al consumo de alimento se encontró diferencia altamente significativa del lote comercial sobre los otros 3 lotes. También el comercial fue el de mayor consumo de alimento por docena de huevos producidos. La coloración de la yema del huevo del lote 0% de guandul fue nula obteniendo un producto de difícil mercado.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Avaliar a racionalidade das ações judiciais e pedidos administrativos recebidos pela Secretaria de Estado da Saúde de São Paulo segundo evidências científicas de eficácia e segurança. MÉTODOS: Estudo descritivo, transversal, baseado em informações da Secretaria de Saúde sobre os medicamentos antineoplásicos solicitados por via judicial, com maior impacto financeiro para o Sistema Único de Saúde em 2006 e 2007. Os fármacos foram avaliados quanto às evidências clínicas de eficácia e segurança, com base na classificação do Micromedex®, em metanálises e revisões sistemáticas. As indicações foram confrontadas com aquelas aprovadas em agências reguladoras. RESULTADOS: Os medicamentos bevacizumabe, capecitabina, cetuximabe, erlotinibe, rituximabe, imatinibe e temozolomida geraram gastos superiores a R$ 40 milhões para atender 1.220 solicitações, com custo médio de R$ 33,5 mil por paciente. Os estudos selecionados não recomendam parte das indicações dos medicamentos prescritos. Cerca de 17% dos pedidos não tinham evidência para a indicação mencionada no pleito, o que equivale a um gasto inadequado de, no mínimo, R$ 6,8 milhões. CONCLUSÕES: Os resultados reforçam a necessidade de qualificação técnica para tratar as demandas judiciais e exige capacitação dos profissionais no manejo da literatura científica, na seleção adequada dos fármacos e na escolha da melhor conduta terapêutica para cada condição clínica. Dessa forma será possível garantir o acesso a tecnologias eficazes e seguras, e assim aprimorar o modelo de assistência farmacêutica em oncologia.OBJETIVO: Evaluar la racionalidad de las acciones judiciales y pedidos administrativos recibidos por la Secretaria Estatal de Salud de Sao Paulo según evidencias científicas de eficacia y seguridad.

Las indicaciones fueron confrontadas con las aprobadas en agencias reguladoras. RESULTADOS: Los medicamentos bevacizumabe, capecitabina, cetuximabe, erlotinibe, rituximabe, imatinibe y temozolomida generaron gastos superiores a R$ 40 millones para atender 1.220 solicitudes, con costo promedio de R$ 33,5 mil por paciente. Los estudios seleccionados no recomiendan parte de las indicaciones de los medicamentos prescritos. Cerca de 17% de los pedidos no tenían evidencia para la indicación mencionada en el pleito, lo que equivale a un gasto inadecuado de, mínimo, R$ 6,8 millones. CONCLUSIONES: Los resultados refuerzan la necesidad de calificación técnica para tratar las demandas judiciales y exige capacitación de los profesionales en el manejo de la literatura científica, en la selección adecuada de los fármacos y en la escogencia de la mejor conducta terapéutica para cada condición clínica. De esta forma será posible garantizar el acceso a tecnologías eficaces y seguras, y así perfeccionar el modelo de asistencia farmacéutica en oncología.OBJECTIVE: To assess the rationality of legal suits and administrative requests requiring anticancer drugs filed against and submitted to the São Paulo State Department of Health, in view of scientific evidence on efficacy and safety. METHODS: A descriptive cross-sectional study was carried out based on information on lawsuits filed by cancer patients requiring anticancer drugs were furnished by the Department of Health. These drugs are among those having the greatest financial impact on the Brazilian Health System in 2006 and 2007. The drugs were assessed according to clinical evidence on efficacy and safety, based on Micromedex® categorization, on systematic reviews and meta-analyses. Indications present in the legal documentation were compared to the indications approved by regulatory agencies. RESULTS: Bevacizumab, capecitabine, cetuximab, erlotinib, rituximab, imatinib, and temozolomide accounted for expenses over R$ 40 million to meet 1220 requests and lawsuits, at an average cost of R$ 33,500 per patient. Selected studies do not recommend all the indications for the prescribed drugs. Approximately 17% of requests and lawsuits did not provide evidence for the required indication, and these amounted to inappropriate expenses of, at least, R$ 6.8 million. CONCLUSIONS: The results reinforce the need for technical expertise in dealing with legal suits and for capacity-building of health professionals in approaching the scientific literature, in order to appropriately select drugs and to ensure the best therapeutic decision for each clinical condition, and thus guarantee access to safe and effective health technologies and, therefore, to enhance the quality of the Brazilian pharmaceutical services model in oncology.

    Full Text Available La selva baja caducifolia (SBC de Yucatán, México, es un recurso natural valioso que provee servicios ambientales y diferentes productos para beneficio de los humanos. El presente trabajo ofrece información acerca de la selva baja caducifolia (SBC como un recurso natural que puede ser adecuado para la producción de rumiantes. Primeramente se describe las características de la SBC en particular a su riqueza de recursos botánicos. Se incluye la descripción de cómo es cosechada la vegetación por ovinos y caprinos para obtener alimento, así como una lista de los diferentes tipos de parásitos que infectan a los rumiantes que pastorean en la SBC. Finalmente, se enlistan los diferentes métodos que podrían emplearse para el control integrado de dichos parásitos, buscando hacer uso racional de la SBC. Este uso racional del recurso forrajero debe evitar la sobre-explotación de la vegetación, y al mismo tiempo favorecer la buena alimentación de los rumiantes que la utilizan. Para lograr una actividad ganadera rentable se requiere implementar una estrategia de suplementación energética que permita aprovechar el elevado contenido de proteína de la mayoría de las plantas consumidas por rumiantes en la SBC. Por otra parte, el consumo de plantas de la SBC puede aportar compuestos secundarios con efecto antiparasitario. En conclusión, la SBC puede formar parte del manejo nutricional de los rumiantes y pude ayudar a controlar sus parásitos internos mediante los compuestos secundarios que contienen algunas plantas de dicho ecosistema. Lo anterior permitirá a los ganaderos reducir su dependencia por insumos externos para la alimentación de rumiantes así como reducir el uso de drogas antihelmínticas.

    Full Text Available Los glucocorticoides o corticosteroides son fármacos antiinflamatorios, antialérgicos e inmunosupresores derivados del cortisol o hidrocortisona, hormona producida por la corteza adrenal. Su uso terapéutico fuera de la endocrinología data de la observación hecha por el reumatólogo Philip Hench quien, suponiendo que los pacientes con artritis reumatoidea tenían un déficit adrenal, inyectó en algunos cortisona, molécula de reciente producción industrial. El resultado obtenido fue tan contundente que se toma como ejemplo de la medicina traslacional. En la actualidad, los glucocorticoides figuran entre las drogas más usadas y, paralelamente, más temidas. Así, el objetivo de esta revisión es señalar los aspectos destacados de su farmacología para su uso racional en la práctica clínica.

    Full Text Available La adopción voluntaria de sistemas de gestión de la calidad y del medio ambiente en las playas turísticas supone un cambio sustancial en el enfoque de la ordenación de los usos y la explotación de estos espacios litorales por parte de algunos municipios. Tras examinar las debilidades de la gestión habitual de las playas, se recogen y consideran las distintas normas y sistemas de gestión aplicables. Este nuevo enfoque es necesario para mantener los beneficios económicos y sociales a largo plazo que proporciona el turismo litoral. Un análisis de la evolución de los certificados de gestión en las playas de la Comunidad Valenciana permite comprobar la aplicabilidad de estos sistemas y la compatibilidad entre ellos. La gestión racional en el uso de las playas, apoyada en estos nuevos instrumentos, deberá satisfacer a todas las partes interesadas: los turistas, la población local, el medio ambiente y las generaciones futuras.

    The cryostats presented here were built from standard parts; this makes it possible to construct a great variety of apparatus at minimum cost. The liquid nitrogen and helium reservoirs were designed so as to reduce losses to a minimum, and so as to make the cryostats as autonomous as possible. The experimental enclosure which is generally placed in the lower part of the apparatus requires a separate study in every case. Furthermore, complete assemblies such as transfer rods, isolated traps and high vacuum valves, were designed with a similar regard for the economic aspects and for the need for standardization. This equipment thus satisfies a great variety of experimental needs; it is readily adaptable and the consumptions of helium and liquid nitrogen are very low. (authors) [fr

Due to the high cost of oil pipelines, we have passed from tanks built on land to prestressed concrete tanks which can be berthed at great depths or anchored to the bottom to keep them afloat, it being possible to unmoor them for transferring them. Transporting and storing liquated gas leads US to see the advantages of prestressed concrete over steel, as the latter becomes brittle at low temperatures, whereas the former's strength increases. The different forms and possible sections are analyzed, stressing the great importance of the solution of the double concrete hull with pearlite insulation. Finally, a study is made of «light concretes », not the classical types used as thermal and acoustic insulation, but the semi-heavy ones made with expanded clay, high quality sand and P-450 cement, which technique is not yet as developed in Spain at might be wished.En este artículo se trata la evolución de los distintos sistemas de transporte y almacenamiento del petróleo submarino y sus derivados (gas de petróleo y gas natural, resaltando la importancia del uso de barcos de hormigón.

    The saving and rational use of the energy is integral part of our life. This concept is seen already reflected in economic, technological, social and environmental factors in our country. The options of energy saving are seen like an alternative of investment as much for the user as for the electrical companies; nevertheless, to determine the saving potential in a sector it is necessary to understand how and for what purpose is the energy used. The domestic sector in our country consumes more than 20% of the demanded electrical energy and exist several factors that can cause that this percentage is increased. In spite of this, there is a great potential of energy saving in this sector, nevertheless specialized studies are required on the final uses of energy. But to be able to make these studies it is necessary to have a great amount of data on energy, climatologic, economic and financial, and social type. If these were found in a single data base, they could be used to plan, implement, evaluate and improve energy saving programs. This article focuses towards the importance of the knowledge of the real final uses of electrical energy in the domestic sector and presents as a result the conformation of a data base of household-electric final uses of electrical energy as well as the development of a tool that takes advantage of this data base to evaluate measures of change of equipment for a more efficient one.

    Full Text Available El objetivo del control de plagas urbanas es la mejora del bienestar de los residentes urbanos, la reducción de las enfermedades transmisibles, el mantenimiento de ambientes sanos, la creación de infraestructuras urbanas que reduzcan los riesgos, así como la reducción de la exposición a contaminantes biológicos, físicos y químicos y de sus efectos sobre la salud en el ambiente laboral y en la comunidad. En este sentido, y en relación con el control de plagas, es necesario diseñar programas de control adecuados contra aquellas especies que adquieren la consideración de plaga. Dadas las características de los ambientes urbanos en los que se produce una convivencia casi permanente entre el ser humano y estas especies animales, la adopción de un programa de lucha racional que permita reducir o eliminar la incidencia de estas plagas resulta imprescindible. Se analizan los criterios básicos para el diseño racional de programas de control que minimicen no sólo las consecuencias negativas que se derivan de las plagas, sino también los riesgos derivados de la aplicación de medidas para su control.

The use of sublingual administered nifedipine is extensive even in elderly patients, which may cause a sharp blood pressure drop and also a change in the hystic flow self-regulating mechanisms. It is stressed that complications are not serious but if this drug is more rationally used and some directions are fulfilled, then these complications will be further reduced

    Full Text Available El estudio de la participación electoral ha interesado por gran tiempo a la ciencia política debido a su importancia teórica, empírica y metodológica. La investigación busca estimar el poder predictivo de un modelo de la teoría de elección racional sobre los niveles de participación electoral en 64 elecciones presidenciales de los países de América Latina entre 1995 y 2010. Se encuentra que la competencia electoral, el poder presidencial, el estatus mayoritario, el voto obligatorio, el registro no voluntario y la inercia del electorado influyen significativamente en los niveles de participación. El poder predictivo es constatado por medio de la variabilidad explicada por el modelo y los pronósticos para cuatro elecciones en 2011, el cual ha resultado ser moderadamente alto.

    Full Text Available O artigo explora o valor e os limites da teoria da agência por meio da comparação das relações entre fazendeiros de gado e capatazes no Rio Grande do Sul e em Buenos Aires nas primeiras décadas do século XIX. Considera que a teoria da agência e a abordagem da escolha racional baseiam-se em uma teoria da ação deficiente, pressupondo atores pré-sociais, que usam uma racionalidade universal, embora possam ser úteis para identificar certos dilemas centrais na relação entre principal e agente e para delimitar o conjunto das soluções viáveis. Como os atores geralmente não tentam otimizar suas escolhas, mas buscam soluções satisfatórias para os problemas que encontram, somente a história e a cultura explicam a "escolha" de um dos arranjos viáveis e não de outro. O contexto e a experiência se internalizam no habitus e na consciência prática dos atores, que moldam a definição dos problemas e as estratégias para resolvê-los. Os fazendeiros estudados neste artigo abordavam questões semelhantes de agência de maneiras diferentes. Parte da divergência devia-se aos contextos, mas muito dela se relacionava aos habitus distintos, decorrentes da origem do portenho na classe dos grandes comerciantes coloniais, sem experiência rural, e da origem do gaúcho na elite dos militares fazendeiros, dependentes do Estado. Nos dois casos, a interação repetida através do tempo levou a mudanças importantes na relação entre fazendeiro e capataz, dificilmente explicáveis pela escolha racional.

En primer lugar, se describe la comunidad de usuarios a nivel global, focalizando en el uso actual que el software ha alcanzado en Argentina: la cantidad de implementaciones disponibles, su evolución, el tipo, tamaño y variedad de los desarrollos existentes, así como su aplicación a la gestión de repositorios digitales de ciencia y tecnología en el ámbito de las instituciones científicas, tecnológicas y de educación superior en Argentina. En segundo lugar, se detallan las acciones llevadas a cabo a partir de la creación del Centro Nacional de Promoción de Greenstone en Argentina en 2009. Datos recabados en encuestas realizadas permitieron observar que las razones predominantes para elegir esta plataforma fueron, entre otras, su facilidad de instalación y configuración, su bajo nivel de requerimiento tecnológico, la generalizada escasez de recursos humanos dedicados a esta actividad, y la complejidad que presentaban los softwares alternativos existentes en ese momento. A lo largo de estos 8 años, tanto los repositorios digitales como los sistemas que los soportan evolucionaron drásticamente, modificando el escenario actual. Paralelamente, en 2016 la nueva versión mayor de Greenstone implementó una reingeniería completa del software para su adaptación a las tecnologías en uso: XML, XSLT, Web-services y Java. Como consecuencia de esto, la comunidad de desarrollo local se plantea nuevos desafíos para la migración de las bibliotecas digitales y repositorios implementados con versiones anteriores.

    The type of artificial illumination employed for chrysanthemum cultivation in greenhouses to induce photo period effect will determine its growing rate as well as the energy consumption. Incandescent filament is currently employed for artificial illumination in chrysanthemum nursery to induce photo period effect. Nowadays new illumination technology is being tested aiming energy consumption reduction. The application of illumination based on electrical discharge in sodium or mercury vapor, as well as tubular or integrated compact fluorescent bulbs in chrysanthemum cultivation is identified as the objective of this research work. The experimental part of this work was carried out in a commercial greenhouse model employing five chrysanthemum variety as Papiro, Lindy White, Mona Lisa Rose, Euro Speedy and Stateman during winter and summer period. Parameters employed to the study variety behavior included: production per area, fresh matter weight, presence of flower sprouts and moisture content. The parameters known as electrical variables, like consumption, demand and power factor, together with the treatment energy efficiency index were used to analyze the employed illumination technologies and light bulbs type. Results showed differences between weight of fresh flowers and moisture content for the flowers variety under consideration. Productivity per unit area was noticed to be larger for discharge technology when compared with filament bulbs, for both varieties being tested. The lowest flower sprout occurrence was associated to the discharge technology with the exception of the variety Stateman produced with incandescent bulbs of 100 W in the winter plot. The unique exception related to discharge technology was associated to the White 23 W Integrated Compact Fluorescent bulb yielding 2.4% of flower sprouts compared with 0% of other bulb types associated to the production of the variety Euro Speedy. It was noticed from the results that the yellow integrated compact fluorescent bulbs (23 W) exhibited lower maximum demand as well as an average energy consumption of 75.51% when compared to incandescent filament bulb type (100 W) which is currently employed by the chrysanthemum growers.

    1998-01-01

    The performance evaluation of space heating equipment for a geothermal application is generally considered from either of two perspectives: (a) selecting equipment for installation in new construction, or (b) evaluating the performance and retrofit requirements of an existing system. With regard to new construction, the procedure is relatively straightforward. Once the heating requirements are determined, the process need only involve the selection of appropriately sized hot water heating equipment based on the available water temperature. It is important to remember that space heating equipment for geothermal applications is the same equipment used in non-geothermal applications. What makes geothermal applications unique is that the equipment is generally applied at temperatures and flow rates that depart significantly from traditional heating system design. This chapter presents general considerations for the performance of heating equipment at non-standard temperature and flow conditions, retrofit of existing systems, and aspects of domestic hot water heating.

  8. Renewal of radiological equipment.

    2014-10-01

    In this century, medical imaging is at the heart of medical practice. Besides providing fast and accurate diagnosis, advances in radiology equipment offer new and previously non-existing options for treatment guidance with quite low morbidity, resulting in the improvement of health outcomes and quality of life for the patients. Although rapid technological development created new medical imaging modalities and methods, the same progress speed resulted in accelerated technical and functional obsolescence of the same medical imaging equipment, consequently creating a need for renewal. Older equipment has a high risk of failures and breakdowns, which might cause delays in diagnosis and treatment of the patient, and safety problems both for the patient and the medical staff. The European Society of Radiology is promoting the use of up-to-date equipment, especially in the context of the EuroSafe Imaging Campaign, as the use of up-to-date equipment will improve quality and safety in medical imaging. Every healthcare institution or authority should have a plan for medical imaging equipment upgrade or renewal. This plan should look forward a minimum of 5 years, with annual updates. Teaching points • Radiological equipment has a definite life cycle span, resulting in unavoidable breakdown and decrease or loss of image quality which renders equipment useless after a certain time period.• Equipment older than 10 years is no longer state-of-the art equipment and replacement is essential. Operating costs of older equipment will be high when compared with new equipment, and sometimes maintenance will be impossible if no spare parts are available.• Older equipment has a high risk of failure and breakdown, causing delays in diagnosis and treatment of the patient and safety problems both for the patient and the medical staff.• Every healthcare institution or authority should have a plan for medical imaging equipment upgrade or replacement.

    Full Text Available Este texto pone en duda la hipótesis según la cual las estrategias de gestión que consideran la subjetividad del trabajador serían esencialmente libertarias. Condiciones históricas son discutidas antes de la llegada del capitalismo en Brasil-Colonia y en Francia del siglo XVIII, donde la subjetividad del trabajador se moviliza instrumentalmente. Las investigaciones de Elton Mayo son vistas como un momento especial en que la psicología industrial conservadora "descubre" la subjetividad. También se discuten, en el contexto de las prácticas de gestión, las reflexiones de Foucault, para quien el ejercicio del poder supone el uso de la libertad. Él examina la teoría del capital humano y la ideología del emprendimiento como nuevas formas de movilización de la subjetividad, en tiempos de crisis de la sociedad de retribución. En este trayecto, se argumenta que la movilización de la subjetividad también tiene un propósito antilibertario.

    The International Space Station (ISS) currently provides human waste collection and hygiene facilities in the Russian Segment Service Module (SM) which supports a three person crew. Additional hardware is planned for the United States Operational Segment (USOS) to support expansion of the crew to six person capability. The additional hardware will be integrated in an ISS standard equipment rack structure that was planned to be installed in the Node 3 element; however, the ISS Program Office recently directed implementation of the rack, or Waste and Hygiene Compartment (WHC), into the U.S. Laboratory element to provide early operational capability. In this configuration, preserved urine from the WHC waste collection system can be processed by the Urine Processor Assembly (UPA) in either the U.S. Lab or Node 3 to recover water for crew consumption or oxygen production. The human waste collection hardware is derived from the Service Module system and is provided by RSC-Energia. This paper describes the concepts, design, and integration of the WHC waste collection hardware into the USOS including integration with U.S. Lab and Node 3 systems.

En muchas áreas de investigación “tradicionales” como la Biología, Medicina, Agronomía, etc., este marco es tácito, es decir se asume inconscientemente. Además es muy común que sea un marco totalmente erróneo, a partir de la filosofía del Positivismo o Empirismo Lógico. El uso de este marco hace que la investigación sea muy rígida, pretendiendo ser totalmente objetiva y racional. Los filósofos modernos han rechazado unánimemente este marco epistémico, y han postulado entre otras cosas, que la ciencia no es totalmente objetiva, que hay actos en el proceso de investigación científica, que no pueden ser justificados totalmente de forma racional. En el artículo, se discuten brevemente estos aspectos epistemológicos. Se introduce también algunas ideas sencillas sobre conceptos de causalidad y de aspectos metodológicos para apoyar la causalidad, en particular la eliminación o minimización de los llamados factores de confusión, mediante cuatro procedimientos: la homogeneización de los elementos de estudio; la aleatorización de variantes de factores causales a los elementos; la formación de bloques o estratos homogéneos dentro de ellos pero heterogéneos entre ellos y mediante la formulación de modelos estadísticos que contemplen las acciones simultáneas de varios factores

    Full Text Available A research to assess the effect of digital and electronic culture in the metabolic syndrome in children and adolescents aged 10-14 years was performed. An intentional sample was taken of 29 patients of both sexes with diagnostic criteria for metabolic syndrome, who attended the consultation of pediatric nutrition at Enrique Tejera City Hospital, Valencia, Venezuela, in 2014. The following parameters were measured from each participating youth: waist circumference, weight, height, fasting serum glucose and triglycerides; it was also inquired about the time of use of electronic equipment and video games in hours/day. It was found that there was a statistically significant association between the hours dedicated to the use of electronic and video games with weight (rP = 0.5470; p = 0.0021, waist circumference (rP = 0.5376; p = 0.0026, and triglycerides (rS = 0.8202; p < 0.0001, and between the hours dedicated to the use of electronic and video games and indexes BMI (rP = 0.5432; p = 0.0027, weight/age (rP = 0.5367; p = 0.0031 and weight/height (rP = 0.5779; p = 0.0012. These results indicated that individuals of greater weight, waist circumference and triglyceride concentration, tend to spend more hours dedicated to the use of electronics and video games. The results show that sedentary activities influence the rise of metabolic syndrome currently registered in children and adolescents.

    Numerical modeling may be used with great efficiency for predicting the behavior of systems operating in new situations. By using adequate models, it is possible to predict the performance of a system in a great number of different situations, in a fast manner and saving resources. The objective of the work was to develop a methodology, by using numerical modeling, with the purpose of predicting the behavior of combustion equipment operating with natural gas. The simulations included the modeling of the turbulent flow, the heat transfer and mass transfer problems, and also for considering the chemical reactions mechanisms. The investigation focused on the industrial segment. Two typical geometries were studied, represented by Industrial furnace for melting and re-melting metals, and Industrial furnace for ceramics ('tunnel' type). The simulations produced results, for the two geometries which were considered, on the velocity and temperature fields and species concentrations, within both furnaces. The developed methodology may be employed in other applications of practical interest. (author)

    Full Text Available RACIONAL: O método com utilização manual de glutaraldeído é amplamente empregado para desinfecção de endoscópios. A elevada rotina nos serviços de gastroscopia, pequena quantidade de equipamentos e a falta de conhecimento técnico sobre os processos de descontaminação contribuem para desinfecção inadequada dos endoscópios, intensificando o risco de transmissão de microrganismos. A água eletrolítica ácida tem apresentado eficácia na inativação e destruição de microrganismos e vem sendo usada na descontaminação de endoscópios. OBJETIVO: Verificar a eficiência microbicida da água eletrolítica ácida, produzida pelo aparelho Cleantop WM-1, em 20 gastroscópios contaminados após uso em pacientes. MATERIAL E MÉTODOS: Amostras coletadas do canal de biopsia dos endoscópios, após uso em pacientes (n = 20 e depois da desinfecção (n = 20, foram cultivadas em ágar tripticaseína de soja, MacConkey e Sabouraud dextrose. RESULTADOS: Dezessete das 20 amostras coletadas após o uso do aparelho em pacientes revelaram a presença de bacilos gram-negativos, cocos gram-positivos e leveduras em taxas de 10³ a 10(5 ufc/mL. Nenhuma amostra, das 20 coletadas após a descontaminação, apresentou contaminação microbiana. CONCLUSÃO: Nesse estudo preliminar, a desinfecção mecânica realizada pelo aparelho Cleantop com água eletrolítica ácida revelou resultados satisfatórios pela eliminação de microrganismos e otimização no tempo de processamento dos gastroscópiosBACKGROUND: The manual disinfection of endoscopes with glutharaldeyde is widely employed. The great routine in gastroenteroscopy services, low number of equipment and the lack of technical knowledge about the decontamination processes are factors that stimulate the inadequate endoscope disinfection, intensifying the risk of transmission of microorganisms.

  6. Determinação racional da vontade humana e educação natural em Rousseau Rational determination of human will and natural education in Rousseau

    Cláudio Almir Dalbosco

    2007-04-01

    Full Text Available O presente artigo procura mostrar, por meio de um trabalho analítico-reconstrutivo, que na base do 'argumento secular' de Rousseau sobre a origem da maldade humana, desenvolvido no livro IV de Émile, está uma teoria da determinação racional da vontade que oscila entre os conceitos de consciência e razão. Pela expressão 'argumento secular', entende-se o fato de Rousseau ver a origem do mal não mais em uma força estranha nem mais no indivíduo isolado, mas sim na própria sociedade. O artigo pretende esclarecer também que, apesar dessa oscilação, tal teoria torna-se decisiva ao esboço de um projeto de educação natural oferecido pelo autor ao seu aluno imaginário no Émile. Uma vez que seu caráter é constituído pela trama de relações sociais, não há outra alternativa a Emílio senão a de buscar educar-se no convívio social, mesmo correndo o risco permanente de ser corrompido pela sociedade. Como o esboço da teoria da determinação racional da vontade humana está em estreita conexão com o esboço das teorias social e antropológica também oferecido por Rousseau no Émile, ele também deve arrolar argumentos para o confronto, por meio de um trabalho educativo da tendência egoísta do amour-propre, com o processo de estranhamento oriundo da sociabilidade humana, visando a recuperação do sentimento do amour de soi-même no convívio social.This article seeks to show, with the help of an analytical-reconstructive work, that at the basis of Rousseau's "secular argument" about the origin of human evil, developed in book IV of the Emile, lies a theory of the rational determination of the will that oscillates between the concepts of conscience and reason. By the expression "secular argument" is understood here the fact that Rousseau no longer sees the origin of evil in a strange force, or in the singular individual, but in society itself. The present text attempts to clarify also that, despite this vacillation, such theory

    The last twenty years have seen major advances in the electronics industry. Perhaps the most significant aspect of these advances has been the significant role that electronic equipment plays in almost all product markets. Even though electronic equipment is used in a broad base of applications, many future applications have yet to be conceived. This versatility of electron­ ics has been brought about primarily by the significant advances that have been made in integrated circuit technology. The electronic product user is rarely aware of the integrated circuits within the equipment. However, the user is often very aware of the size, weight, mod­ ularity, maintainability, aesthetics, and human interface features of the product. In fact, these are aspects of the products that often are instrumental in deter­ mining its success or failure in the marketplace. Optimizing these and other product features is the primary role of Electronic Equipment Packaging Technology. As the electronics industry continues to pr...

    Hydraulic testing in boreholes is one major task of the hydrogeological program in the Stripa Project. A new testing equipment for this purpose was constructed. It consists of a downhole part and a surface part. The downhole part consists of two packers enclosing two test-sections when inflated; one between the packers and one between the bottom packer and the bottom of the borehole. A probe for downhole electronics is also included in the downhole equipment together with electrical cable and nylon tubing. In order to perform shut-in and pulse tests with high accuracy a surface controlled downhole valve was constructed. The surface equipment consists of the data acquisition system, transducer amplifier and surface gauges. In the report detailed descriptions of each component in the whole testing equipment are given.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN El fenómeno de la congestión y la búsqueda de su reducción y/o mitigación, es un tema de amplio debate actualmente. El argumento central consiste en cómo limitar o hacer más racional el uso del automóvil. Muchas de las propuestas se inscriben dentro de enfoques mercantiles, mediante cobros por circulación o peaje urbano en zonas y/u horarios distintos. Este trabajo analiza los comportamientos de los automovilistas frente a incrementos de sus costos, para verificar si efectivamente existe una relación entre un aumento en los costos de circulación y el desaliento al uso del automóvil. Consecuentemente, se consideró la evolución de los precios de los combustibles, que en Chile son ajustados periódicamente, para relacionarlos con los flujos de tránsito.Se verifica que en Santiago de Chile existe una fuerte inelasticidad en la demanda por el uso del vehículo particular frente a importantes incrementos de costo y por ello, no se asegura que un pago de peaje promueva una reducción de la circulación privada. ABSTRACT Congestion and the search for its reduction or mitigation is nowadays a highly discussed issue. The focal point of this debate is to find alternatives to limit or rationalize the car use. Many current proposals are developed under market approaches, such as congestion charges or urban toll in high-demanded areas or schedules. This paper analyzes the drivers’behavior facing increases in their costs, aiming to detect if there is a relationship between these and the discouragement of car use. To achieve it, the paper takes into account the fuel price evolution adjusted periodically to relate it to traffic flows. It verifies that in Santiago de Chile there is a strong inelasticity in demand for the private car use facing relevant increases of costs; therefore, the introduction of toll payments does not assure a reduction in private circulation.

    1991-01-01

    When an operator hears sounds in a plantsite, the operator compares normal sounds of equipment which he previously heard and remembered with sounds he actually hears, to judge if they are normal or abnormal. According to the method, there is a worry that abnormal conditions can not be appropriately judged in a case where the number of objective equipments is increased and in a case that the sounds are changed gradually slightly. Then, the device of the present invention comprises a plurality of monitors for monitoring the operation sound of equipments, a recording/reproducing device for recording and reproducing the signals, a selection device for selecting the reproducing signals among the recorded signals, an acoustic device for converting the signals to sounds, a switching device for switching the signals to be transmitted to the acoustic device between to signals of the monitor and the recording/reproducing signals. The abnormality of the equipments can be determined easily by comparing the sounds representing the operation conditions of equipments for controlling the plant operation and the sounds recorded in their normal conditions.

    2010-01-01

    It is suggested that clinical engineers take the lead in formulating evaluation processes to recommend equipment replacement. Their skill, knowledge, and experience, combined with access to equipment databases, make them a logical choice. Based on ideas from Fennigkoh's scheme, elements such as age, vendor support, accumulated maintenance cost, and function/risk were used.6 Other more subjective criteria such as cost benefits and efficacy of newer technology were not used. The element of downtime was also omitted due to the data element not being available. The resulting Periop Master Equipment List and its rationale was presented to the Perioperative Services Program Council. They deemed the criteria to be robust and provided overwhelming acceptance of the list. It was quickly put to use to estimate required capital funding, justify items already thought to need replacement, and identify high-priority ranked items for replacement. Incorporating prioritization criteria into an existing equipment database would be ideal. Some commercially available systems do have the basic elements of this. Maintaining replacement data can be labor-intensive regardless of the method used. There is usually little time to perform the tasks necessary for prioritizing equipment. However, where appropriate, a clinical engineering department might be able to conduct such an exercise as shown in the following case study.

    The Iraq Department of Border Enforcement is rich in personnel, but poor in equipment. An effective border control system must include detection, discrimination, decision, tracking and interdiction, capture, identification, and disposition. An equipment solution that addresses only a part of this will not succeed, likewise equipment by itself is not the answer without considering the personnel and how they would employ the equipment. The solution should take advantage of the existing in-place system and address all of the critical functions. The solutions are envisioned as being implemented in a phased manner, where Solution 1 is followed by Solution 2 and eventually by Solution 3. This allows adequate time for training and gaining operational experience for successively more complex equipment. Detailed descriptions of the components follow the solution descriptions. Solution 1 - This solution is based on changes to CONOPs, and does not have a technology component. It consists of observers at the forts and annexes, forward patrols along the swamp edge, in depth patrols approximately 10 kilometers inland from the swamp, and checkpoints on major roads. Solution 2 - This solution adds a ground sensor array to the Solution 1 system. Solution 3 - This solution is based around installing a radar/video camera system on each fort. It employs the CONOPS from Solution 1, but uses minimal ground sensors deployed only in areas with poor radar/video camera coverage (such as canals and streams shielded by vegetation), or by roads covered by radar but outside the range of the radar associated cameras. This document provides broad operational requirements for major equipment components along with sufficient operational details to allow the technical community to identify potential hardware candidates. Continuing analysis will develop quantities required and more detailed tactics, techniques, and procedures.

    The gas plant at Kaarstoe was built as part of the Statpipe gas transport system and went on stream in 1985. In 1993 another line was routed from the Sleipner field to carry condensate, and the plant was extended accordingly. Today heavy additional supply- and export lines are under construction, and the plant is extended more than ever. The main role of the factory is to separate the raw gas into commercial products and to pump or ship it to the markets. The site covers a large number of well-known mechanical equipment. This presentation deals with piping, mechanical and structural disciplines. The lifetime of mechanical equipment is often difficult to predict as it depends on many factors, and the subject is complex. Mechanical equipment has been kept in-house, which provides detailed knowledge of the stages from a new to a 14 years old plant. The production regularity has always been very high, as required. The standard of the equipment is well kept, support systems are efficient, and human improvisation is extremely valuable.

    Full Text Available O presente trabalho se voltou ao estudo da parcela do consumo de água destinada ao uso domiciliar. O conhecimento das parcelas de influência no consumo de água residencial pode subsidiar o uso eficiente deste insumo e, consequentemente, a melhor gestão dos recursos hídricos através das medidas de gestão da demanda. As residências estudadas situam-se no Bairro de Nordeste de Amaralina, na região da Chapada do Rio Vermelho. Em resumo, avaliou-se o consumo de água total e setorial, dessas residências, a partir da instalação de um hidrômetro e data logger por unidade estudada. Esse sistema de monitoramento captou o consumo intradomiciliar a cada dez segundos. A setorização dos usos por aparelho hidráulico foi feita a partir do reconhecimento das curvas de vazões, impressas pelo dispositivo hidráulico no instante do uso, aliado a uso de software específico para segregar o volume captado na saída do reservatório, entre os diferentes pontos de utilização na residência. A partir desses dados, foi possível avaliar fatores intervenientes nesse consumo. O período de monitoramento ocorreu entre Dezembro de 2010 e Janeiro de 2012, que por sua vez, foi subdivido em períodos, com diferentes características, a fim de identificar possíveis fatores de influencia no consumo. No primeiro período foi avaliado o consumo de água com o mínimo de interferência na rotina dos moradores, no segundo período iniciou-se a implementação das medidas de gestão da demanda, que consistiram, no incentivo aos moradores em utilizar a água de forma racional, e continuaram no terceiro período, com a substituição de alguns aparelhos convencionais por modelo economizador de água. Dentre os principais resultados alcançados, foi verificado que o consumo através da bacia sanitária, chuveiros e tanques da área de serviço representaram grande parcela do consumo total, representando, portanto, oportunidades para medidas de melhoria de efici

    2014-07-01

    Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) Operators are challenged with securing reliable supply channels for safety related equipment due to equipment obsolescence. Many Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) have terminated production of spare parts and product life-cycle support. The average component life cycles are much shorter than the NPP design life, which means that replacement components and parts for the original NPP systems are not available for the complete design life of the NPPs. The lack or scarcity of replacement parts adversely affects plant reliability and ultimately the profitability of the affected NPPs. This problem is further compounded when NPPs pursue license renewal and approval for plant-life extension. A reliable and predictable supply of replacement co components is necessary for NPPs to remain economically competitive and meet regulatory requirements and guidelines. Electrical and I and C components, in particular, have short product life cycles and obsolescence issues must be managed pro actively and not reactively in order to mitigate the risk to the NPP to ensure reliable and economic NPP operation.

    This Practical Radiation Technical Manual is one of a series that has been designed to provide guidance on radiological protection for employers, radiation protection officers, managers and other technically competent persons who have responsibility for ensuring the safety of employees working with ionizing radiation. The Manual may be used with the appropriate IAEA Practical Radiation Safety Manuals to provide training, instruction and information for all employees engaged in work with ionizing radiation. Personal protective equipment (PPE) includes clothing or other special equipment that is issued to individual workers to provide protection against actual or potential exposure to ionizing radiations. It is used to protect each worker against the prevailing risk of external or internal exposure in circumstances in which it is not reasonably practicable to provide complete protection by means of engineering controls or administrative methods. Adequate personal protection depends on PPE being correctly selected, fitted and maintained. Appropriate training for the users and arrangements to monitor usage are also necessary to ensure that PPE provides the intended degree of protection effectively. This Manual explains the principal types of PPE, including protective clothing and respiratory protective equipment (RPE). Examples of working procedures are also described to indicate how PPE should be used within a safe system of work. The Manual will be of most benefit if it forms part of a more comprehensive training programme or is supplemented by the advice of a qualified expert in radiation protection. Some of the RPE described in this Manual should be used under the guidance of a qualified expert

    Celso Silva Bastos

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available O conceito do uso racional para a conservação de água consiste na gestão da demanda e da oferta de água, com ações voltadas para o fornecimento de fontes alternativas visando suprir o uso em áreas menos nobres por águas de qualidade inferior. Este trabalho tem por objetivo mostrar a aplicação de um sistema que aproveita a água drenada dos evaporadores de ar-condicionado e das águas pluviais como fontes alternativas. Verificou-se que cada evaporador produz 4,8 litros/água/hora, considerando 10 horas de uso diário, o volume acumulado chegaria a 48 litros/dia por aparelho que multiplicado pelo total de 137 unidades chega-se ao volume diário de 4.298 litros o que representa 77,72% da demanda das descargas sanitárias que é de 5.530 litros/dia. Em relação ao aproveitamento de águas pluviais, a previsão de acumulação refere-se a 10% da área do terreno que multiplicado pelo índice de 0,05 e pela retenção de 1 hora, obtém o volume de 14,8 m3 . Pretende-se com essa prática, alcançar uma redução significativa do volume de água potável, hoje utilizada praticamente para a realização de todas as atividades, contribuindo assim para uma obra mais sustentável, minimizando os impactos ambientais causados pela construção.

The different meanings of rational number – rational point, quotient, fraction, ratio, and operator – are constructs that depend on mathematical theories in which they are imbedded and the situations that evoke them in problem-solving. Some data will be presented from continuing education courses for teachers, aiming to contribute to understanding regarding the different “personalities” of the rational number. In general, these “personalities” are not easily identified by teachers and students, which is the reason for the many difficulties encountered during problem-solving involving rational numbers. One of these “personalities”, the ratio, provides the basis for the concept of proportionality, which is relevant because it is a unifying idea in mathematics. Key-words: Rational Numbers and Proportionality. Problem Solving.

Essa metodologia parte do princípio de que a construção do conhecimento pode ser realizada a partir de problemas geradores de novos conceitos e novos conteúdos. Os diferentes significados do número racional: ponto racional, quociente, fração, razão e operador são construtos que dependem das teorias matemáticas em que se inserem e das situações a que se referem na resolução de problemas.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Contribuir com informações para o uso racional de medicamentos durante a amamentação. FONTES DOS DADOS: Foram selecionados artigos na base de dados MEDLINE, de 1993 a 2004, e no Lilacs, de 1995 a 2004, em português, espanhol e inglês, usando as palavras-chave aleitamento, lactação, drogas e medicamentos. Outras referências recentes encontradas em artigos e livros foram incluídas a fim de fornecer subsídios para a realização deste artigo. SÍNTESE DOS DADOS: A maior parte dos fármacos é compatível com a amamentação. Poucos são contra-indicados (antineoplásicos, radiofármacos, drogas de abuso; alguns requerem cuidados devido ao risco de efeitos adversos em lactentes ou de redução do volume de leite. Porém, ainda é necessário maior conhecimento sobre os efeitos para a criança de muitos fármacos durante a amamentação. CONCLUSÕES: O princípio fundamental da prescrição de medicamentos para mães em lactação baseia-se no conceito de risco e benefício. Deve-se fazer opção, sempre que possível, por uma droga já estudada, que seja pouco excretada no leite materno e que não tenha risco aparente para a saúde da criança. Medicamentos que reduzem a produção de leite pela nutriz devem ser evitados durante a lactação, e o uso dos galactagogos está reservado para situações especiais. Dessa maneira, só excepcionalmente o aleitamento materno precisa ser desencorajado ou descontinuado quando a mãe necessitar de tratamento farmacológico.OBJECTIVE: To contribute with information about the adequate administration of drugs during breastfeeding. SOURCES OF DATA: MEDLINE articles from 1993 to 2004, and Lilacs articles from 1995 to 2004 were selected in Portuguese, Spanish and English, by including the following keywords: breastfeeding, lactation, drugs and medicines.

  19. Explicaciones a través de mecanismos: una propuesta alterna a los fallos de la teoría estándar de la elección racional desde la perspectiva de Jon Elster

    2017-07-01

    Full Text Available El propósito de este escrito es indicar cómo Jon Elster ofrece una alternativa a los fallos de la teoría estándar de la elección racional, que, a juicio de este autor, padece una considerable inflexibilidad, generándole indeterminación e incertidumbre. En efecto, a diferencia de la teoría estándar, que sostiene que los individuos, de quienes se dan por supuestas sus preferencias, han de tomar decisiones cualesquiera que maximizan para su beneficio, Elster considera que existen actos generados bajo limitantes de la razón —es decir, no racionales—, que abren la posibilidad de abordar otros elementos que integran el acto de decidir, como, por ejemplo, la motivación, cuyo origen puede ser una emoción o creencia. Involucrar este elemento en la decisión estándar puede dar lugar a una inconsistencia suficiente para determinar que una decisión es irracional y, consecuentemente, dar apertura a la idea de una racionalidad imperfecta que se manifiesta cotidianamente en las actuaciones humanas. Por lo tanto, propone incorporar a la teoría estándar de la elección racional mecanismos causales de tipo irracional, para reformular su tradicional concepción y, por consiguiente, dar apertura natural a otros modelos de racionalidad imperfecta e irracionalidad. De esta manera, la explicación a través de mecanismos permitiría descomponer un fenómeno social en sus partes y, a partir estas, describir las interacciones que hay entre sus componentes, para hallar su fundamentación.

    The word in longwall components is big, and these larger components have price tags to match. The logic behind the greater investment is that it will yield high production rates and good uptime statistics. This is true in most cases. More important than single-shift tonnage records, average shift production continues to climb upwards. This paper reports on the quality, and more significantly, the quantity of service supplied for long-wall equipment, which has reached levels that would have been seen as unachievable when longwall mining was first introduced in the U.S. The school of thought then was that longwall would increase productivity in part by reducing the number of production units and thus reducing the number of personnel employed underground. The expectation of fewer employees turned out to be unrealistic. That was probably one reason that some early attempts to install longwall system looked more like failures than vision of the future

    1977-01-01

    In many types of reactor fuel charging equipment, tongs or a grab, attached to a trolley, housed in a guide duct, can be used for withdrawing from the core a selected spent fuel assembly or to place a new fuel assembly in the core. In these facilities, the trolley may have wheels that roll on rails in the guide duct. This ensures the correct alignment of the grab, the trolley and fuel assembly when this fuel assembly is being moved. By raising or lowering such a fuel assembly, the trolley can be immerged in the coolant bath of the reactor, whereas at other times it can be at a certain level above the upper surface of the coolant bath. The main object of the invention is to create a fuel handling apparatus for a sodium cooled reactor with bearings lubricated by the sodium coolant and in which the contamination of these bearings is prevented [fr

  5. Chapter 12. Space Heating Equipment

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Rafferty, Kevin D.

    1998-01-01

    The performance evaluation of space heating equipment for a geothermal application is generally considered from either of two perspectives: (a) selecting equipment for installation in new construction, or (b) evaluating the performance and retrofit requirements of an existing system. With regard to new construction, the procedure is relatively straightforward. Once the heating requirements are determined, the process need only involve the selection of appropriately sized hot water heating equipment based on the available water temperature. It is important to remember that space heating equipment for geothermal applications is the same equipment used in non-geothermal applications. What makes geothermal applications unique is that the equipment is generally applied at temperatures and flow rates that depart significantly from traditional heating system design. This chapter presents general considerations for the performance of heating equipment at non-standard temperature and flow conditions, retrofit of existing systems, and aspects of domestic hot water heating.

  6. Equipment repair in coal mines

    1982-01-01

    Most equipment in Chinese coal mines consists of machinery and equipment produced in the 1950s; the efficiency of 4-62, CTD-57 and 70B/sub 2/ ventilators is 15% lower than that of new ones; that of SSM and AYaP pumps, 10% lower than of modern ones. Equipment renovation is done in three ways: replacing obsolete equipment with new equipment of the same type; improving the performance of existing equipment by introducing efficiency and reconstruction; and replacing obsolete equipment with advanced equipment. It is indicated that the second way, for example, replacement of 4-62 ventilator blades with a maximum efficiency of 73% by 4-72 ventilator blades raises its efficiency to 90%. Replacing the 8DA-8x3 water pump, having a maximum efficiency of 63%, with the 200D 43x3 pump with a maximum efficiency of 78%, enables an electricity savings of 7000 yuan per year, which exceeds all replacement costs (600 yuan). The need to improve equipment maintenance and preventive work to increase equipment service life and to introduce new techniques and efficiency is noted.

    2005-01-01

    Interventional radiology has seen rapid growth in cardiology and represents an alternative to hazardous surgery. Recently there has been a substantial growth in the number of procedures being performed and interventional cardiology (IC) procedures are the most common interventional procedures in Europe. Advances in imaging technology have facilitated the development of increasingly complex radiological IC equipment. Currently, the technology is developing at a rate ahead of supporting research, equipment standards and a regulatory framework. International standards play a key role in the design, manufacture and performance of radiological IC equipment. A survey of 12 IC systems (15 imaging chains) was conducted in Irish hospitals. The aim of the study was to assess the imbalance between rapidly advancing technology and existing standards and to propose recommendations for new IC equipment standards. The results demonstrate the need for definitive equipment requirements and standardisation in the design, manufacture, acceptance and maintenance of IC equipment. (authors)

  10. Generation of equipment response spectrum considering equipment-structure interaction

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Lee, Sang Hoon; Yoo, Kwang Hoon

    2005-01-01

    Floor response spectra for dynamic response of subsystem such as equipment, or piping in nuclear power plant are usually generated without considering dynamic interaction between main structure and subsystem. Since the dynamic structural response generally has the narrow-banded shapes, the resulting floor response spectra developed for various locations in the structure usually have high spectral peak amplitudes in the narrow frequency bands corresponding to the natural frequencies of the structural system. The application of such spectra for design of subsystems often leads to excessive design conservatisms, especially when the equipment frequency and structure are at resonance condition. Thus, in order to provide a rational and realistic design input for dynamic analysis and design of equipment, dynamic equipment-structure interaction (ESI) should be considered in developing equipment response spectrum which is particularly important for equipment at the resonance condition. Many analytical methods have been proposed in the past for developing equipment response spectra considering ESI. However, most of these methods have not been adapted to the practical applications because of either the complexities or the lack of rigorousness of the methods. At one hand, mass ratio among the equipment and structure was used as an important parameter to obtain equipment response spectra. Similarly, Tseng has also proposed the analytical method for developing equipment response spectra using mass ratio in the frequency domain. This method is analytically rigorous and can be easily validated. It is based on the dynamic substructuring method as applied to the dynamic soil-structure interaction (SSI) analysis, and can relatively easily be implemented for practical applications without to change the current dynamic analysis and design practice for subsystems. The equipment response spectra derived in this study are also based on Tseng's proposed method

    This article documents the methods applied in production control technics specifically focused on commonly used parameter OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness). The indicators of extensive and intensive use of equipment are considered. Their appointment this is comparison in the same type of production within the industry and comparison of single-type and / or different types of equipment in terms of capacity. However, it is shown that there is no possibility of revealing the reasons for the machine’s operation: productive / unproductive, with disturbances. Therefore, in the article reveals the approaches to calculating the indicator characterizing the direct operation of the equipment. The Machine Load coefficient is approaching closely to the indicator of the efficiency of the use of equipment. Methods analysis is proceeded through the historically applied techniques such as “Stopwatch” and “Motion” studies. Was performed the analysis of the efficiency index of OEE equipment using the comparable indexes performance of equipment in the Russian practice. An important indicator of OEE contains three components. The meaning of each of them reflects historically applicable indicators. The value of the availability of equipment indicator is close to the value of the equipment extensibility index. The value of the indicator of the efficiency of work can be compared with the characteristic of the capacity of the equipment and the indicator of the quality level can meet the requirements for compliance with the manufacturing technology. Shown that the sum of the values of the coefficient of “Availability” of the equipment and the value of the “Factor of compaction of working hours” are one. As well as the total value of the indicator “level of quality” and the coefficient of marriage given in the result unit. The measurability of the indicators makes it possible to make a prediction about efficiency of the equipment.

  13. Management methodology for pressure equipment

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bletchly, P. J.

    Pressure equipment constitutes a significant investment in capital and a major proportion of potential high-risk plant in many operations and this is particularly so in an alumina refinery. In many jurisdictions pressure equipment is also subject to statutory regulation that imposes obligations on Owners of the equipment with respect to workplace safety. Most modern technical standards and industry codes of practice employ a risk-based approach to support better decision making with respect to pressure equipment. For a management system to be effective it must demonstrate that risk is being managed within acceptable limits.

    The cryostats presented here were built from standard parts; this makes it possible to construct a great variety of apparatus at minimum cost. The liquid nitrogen and helium reservoirs were designed so as to reduce losses to a minimum, and so as to make the cryostats as autonomous as possible. The experimental enclosure which is generally placed in the lower part of the apparatus requires a separate study in every case. Furthermore, complete assemblies such as transfer rods, isolated traps and high vacuum valves, were designed with a similar regard for the economic aspects and for the need for standardization. This equipment thus satisfies a great variety of experimental needs; it is readily adaptable and the consumptions of helium and liquid nitrogen are very low. (authors) [French] De nombreuses experiences utilisant les basses temperatures, necessitent l'emploi d'un materiel cryogenique complexe n'existant pas dans le commerce. Les cryostats presentes ici ont ete realises a partir d'elements standard, ce qui permet, malgre la diversite des appareils, de realiser un ensemble a moindre frais. Les reservoirs d'azote et d'helium liquides ont ete concus de facon a limiter les pertes et a conferer au cryostat la plus grande autonomie possible. L'enceinte experimentale situee en general dans la partie inferieure de l'appareil necessite dans tous les cas une etude speciale. D'autre part des ensembles complets tels que les cannes de transfert, piege isole, robinet pour vide secondaire, ont ete concus dans le meme souci de rentabilite et de standardisation. Ce materiel peut donc repondre a un grand nombre d'exigences experimentales, il est facilement adaptable, et les consommations d'helium et d'azote liquide sont tres reduites. (auteurs)

    Full Text Available In this article we have attempted to present a general idea of the use of a weapon that is not usually associated with Praetorian soldiers, showing how soldiers were forced to adapt to new times. We have analyzed epigraphic and literary sources, and we can consider as proven the employment of this weapon in the praetorium throughout the 3rd century AD as a result of adaptation to new battle techniques in the face of old and new enemies.

    A lo largo de este artículo hemos realizado una aproximación al uso de un arma que normalmente no se asocia con los soldados de la guardia pretoriana, mostrando así cómo los nuevos tiempos obligaron a estos soldados a adaptarse. Para ello hemos recurrido tanto a las fuentes clásicas como a la epigrafía. Así podemos aseverar sin duda el empleo de esta arma en el pretorio durante el siglo III d. C., como consecuencia de los nuevos modos de combate ante enemigos nuevos y viejos.

    Orthopaedists make great use of eponymous equipment, however the origins of these tools are unknown to many users. This history enriches, enlightens, and enhances surgical education, and may inspire modern innovation. We explored the origins of common and eponymous orthopaedic equipment. We selected pieces of equipment named for their inventors and in the broadest use by modern orthopaedists. We do not describe specialized orthopaedic implants and instruments owing to the overwhelming number of these devices. The history of this equipment reflects the coevolution of orthopaedics and battlefield medicine. Additionally, these stories evidence the primacy of elegant design and suggest that innovation is often a process of revision and refinement rather than sudden inspiration. Their history exposes surgical innovators as brilliant, lucky, hardworking, and sometimes odd. These stories amuse, enlighten, and may inspire modern orthopaedists to develop creative solutions of their own. The rich history of the field's eponymous instruments informs an ongoing tradition of innovation in orthopaedics.

    In a nuclear power plant, states of each of equipment in the plant are monitored accurately even under such a operation condition that the power is changed. That is, the fundamental idea is based on a model comparison method. A deviation between an output signal upon normal plant state obtained in a forecasting model device and that of the objective equipment in the plant are compared with a predetermined value. The result of the comparison is inputted to an alarm device to alarm the abnormality of the states of the equipment to an operator. The device of the present invention thus constituted can monitor the abnormality of the operation of equipment accurately even under such a condition that a power level fluctuates. As a result, it can remarkably contribute to mitigate operator's monitoring operation under the condition such as during load following operation. (I.S.)

    Full Text Available Con el fin de obtener un diagnóstico del estado actual de conocimiento sobre usos de las palmas en la Amazonia colombiana, se revisaron las principales fuentes de información. Treinta y seis de las 41 etnias indígenas consideradas tuvieron registros de uso. Se registraron 82 especies de palmas usadas (78% de las potenciales y 165 usos distribuidos en ocho categorías; todos los usos se presentan de manera detallada en un catálogo. Las categorías de uso más importantes fueron: utensilios y herramientas, construcción, y alimentación humana. Las diez especies más importantes fueron Bactris gasipaes, Euterpe precatoria, Mauritia flexuosa, Oenocarpus bataua, Attalea maripa, Oenocarpus minor, Astrocaryum chambira, Iriartea deltoidea, Oenocarpus bacaba y Socratea exorrhiza; la mayoría de ellas también han sido registradas como las más importantes en otras partes del Neotrópico. No se encontró ninguna información sobre usos de palmas para varios grupos indígenas, especialmente para las etnias cocama, letuama, piaroa, pisamira y yurí, para las cuales se requieren investigaciones detalladas. Se concluye que a pesar de los vacíos de información, los resultados muestran que las palmas son un recurso muy importante con un gran potencial, y una pieza fundamental para la seguridad alimentaria y el desarrollo sustentable de la Amazonia colombiana. Sugerimos la inclusión de las especies más importantes en programas de manejo y agroforestales, al igual que la implementación y popularización de técnicas de cosecha no destructivas. Recomendamos además que las investigaciones futuras estén enfocadas en desarrollar estrategias de manejo que garanticen el uso sostenible de todas estas especies útiles.

    SGTCS is responsible for monitoring and reporting the performance of the SG equipment. Performance monitoring (PM) has been implemented in most important safeguards equipment operating unattended in nuclear facilities. Inspectors acquire equipment performance data in facilities. After inspection, the data package is submitted to SGTCS for processing and analysis. The performance data is used for identification of systems or components, which should be changed in the field and for identification of modules which, should be diagnosed at HQ in order to determine the cause of failure. Moreover, the performance data is used for preventive maintenance and spares distribution planning, and to provide statistics for official reports and management decision making. An important part of the performance monitoring is reporting. Equipment performance reports contain information about equipment inventory, utilization, failure types, failure distribution, and reliability. Trends in performance are given in graphical form in cases, where past data is available. Reliability estimates such as expected times between failures are provided. The automated reporting tools are obtainable through EMIS database application. (author)

    Full Text Available Con el fin de estudiar los cambios en la diversidad y cuantía de la flora en un pastizal manejado de forma racional y disturbado por la quema, se determinó la composición botánica durante cuatro años y medio, utilizando un marco cuadrado en 20 puntos de cada cuartón. Al concluir el período experimental existió una fuerte hegemonía de las gramíneas y las leguminosas perennes con relación a las especies de otras familias con igual ciclo, tanto en número (22 vs 1 como en área cubierta (92,7 vs 0,004%. Un patrón similar se detectó en las especies anuales, independientemente de la familia. El área cubierta por las gramíneas se incrementó después de la quema y en las leguminosas tendió a disminuir, así como su número (7 vs 4. Panicum maximum cv. Likoni fue la especie predominante, al aumentar de 27,3 a 68,0%; Brachiaria decumbens se incrementó ligeramente (1,0 a 4,6%; mientras que Andropogon gayanus disminuyó (21,4 a 6,0%. Especies adventicias como Dichanthium annulatum, Dichanthium aristatum e Indigofera mucronata incrementaron o mantuvieron poblaciones fluctuantes; otras como Dichanthium caricosum y Centrosema molle disminuyeron; mientras que Acacia farnesiana y Alysicarpus vaginalis tendieron a desaparecer. Se concluye que en estas condiciones se creó una cubierta muy diferente a la que se produjo con un manejo racional intensivo aplicado con anterioridad y se corroboró la importancia del índice de composición de especies para explicar las variaciones que se producen en pastoreo.With the objective of studying the changes in the diversity and quantity of the flora in a pastureland rationally managed and disturbed by burning, the botanical composition was determined during four years and a half, using a square frame in 20 spots of each paddock.

    Full Text Available A água é um dos recursos naturais mais importantes para a vida humana. Apesarde ser fundamental nas atividades básicas da população, ainda não é usual parasociedade a valoração econômica. Sendo um bem econômico, portanto, escasso, éimportante mensurar seu valor, a fim de incentivar o uso racional e eficiente, além depermitir a continuidade para as próximas gerações. Com a poluição dos mananciais, ouso inadequado da irrigação, a falta de proteção de nascentes, entre outras ações dohomem, tem afetado a água no seu aspecto qualitativo e quantitativo. A BaciaHidrográfica do Rio Pardo, além de experimentar baixos índices de precipitação em certosperíodos do ano, tem apresentado aumentos progressivos de demanda, principalmentepara uso agrícola. Em conseqüência, a bacia tem apresentado balanço hídrico crítico emcertas épocas do ano. Ademais, o descarte de esgotamentos sanitários sem nenhumtratamento, aliado à disposição não apropriada dos resíduos sólidos industriais, temcausado problema semelhante à qualidade das águas. Se medidas efetivas e preventivasnão forem tomadas, a deterioração na qualidade dos recursos hídricos na bacia do rioPardo pode acarretar um processo de decadência da mesma, com impactos significantessobre a economia da região. O objetivo do artigo é estipular um preço a ser cobrado pelouso dos recursos hídricos na bacia do rio Pardo nas modalidades de uso agrícola,abastecimento doméstico e industrial e diluição de efluentes. A metodologia utilizada eaplicada com os dados estimados para a bacia é a dos preços ótimos, baseadas na teoriado second best e superou a impossibilidade de se obter diretamente a função dedemanda por água em cada uso, garantindo teoricamente uma alocação eficiente entre osmúltiplos usuários. Os resultados demonstram que os preços ótimos estimados para abacia do rio Pardo, com exceção do uso para irrigação, estão dentro da capacidade

Participaram deste estudo 18 homens idosos com idade igual ou superior a 60 anos, fazendo uso de quatro ou mais medicamentos. Trata-se de pesquisa qualitativa, descritiva e exploratória. Os resultados apontaram que ainda existe o consumo de plantas medicinais entre os idosos, principalmente no tratamento de morbidades menores. As representações sobre as plantas medicinais parecem ancoradas na concepção de segurança, ou seja, são naturais e apresentam poucos efeitos colaterais. Seu uso é feito concomitantemente com os medicamentos industrializados, sem atentar para os riscos das interações. Os homens idosos utilizam as plantas medicinais sem, no entanto, relatar aos profissionais de saúde. Logo, faz-se necessária a educação permanente da equipe de saúde e da enfermagem, voltada para a fitoterapia, visando contribuir para o uso seguro e eficaz das plantas medicinais.

    1980-01-01

    In the steel industry, though the investment in isotope-equipped measuring instruments is small as compared with that in machinery, they play important role in the moisture measurement in sintering and blast furnaces, the thickness measurement in rolling process and others in automatic control systems. The economic aspect of the isotope-equipped measuring instruments is described on the basis of the practices in Kimitsu Works of Nippon Steel Corporation: distribution of such instruments, evaluation of economic effects, usefulness evaluation in view of raising the accuracy, and usefulness evaluation viewed from the failure of the isotope instruments. The evaluation of economic effects was made under the premise that the isotope-equipped measuring instruments are not employed. Then, the effects of raising the accuracy are evaluated for a γ-ray plate thickness gauge and a neutron moisture gauge for coke in a blast furnace. Finally, the usefulness was evaluated, assuming possible failure of the isotope-equipped measuring instruments. (J.P.N.)

    Full Text Available Quedas em idosos estão frequentemente relacionadas ao uso de medicamentos e geralmente levam a um prognóstico ruim, representando um problema de saúde pública. O objetivo deste trabalho foi identificar estudos publicados no Brasil, examinando o uso de medicamentos como fator de risco para quedas ou fraturas decorrentes das quedas em idosos. As bases de dados utilizadas foram LILACS, PubMed, SciELO, utilizando os descritores falls, elderly, medication/pharmaceutical preparations/medicines/drugs ou ainda specific groups of medications. Foram identificados 340 artigos; dentre eles, 53 cumpriram com os critérios de inclusão, porém apenas 6 estudos farmacoepidemiológicos de quedas por idosos foram realizados no Brasil. Os principais grupos farmacológicos associados ao aumento do risco de queda foram: antidepressivos, sedativos, ansiolíticos, diuréticos. Tendo em vista o envelhecimento da população no Brasil, necessário é que sejam realizadas e incentivadas pesquisas bem delineadas com tal população para produzir informação científica idônea e promover uso racional de medicamentos em geriatria.Falls in the elderly, often classified as accidental, are frequently related to medication, generally involving poor prognosis and thus becoming a public health issue. The purpose of this systematic review was to identify published Brazilian studies on medication as a risk factor for falls or fall-related fractures in the elderly. The search covered the LILACS, PubMed, and SciELO indexes using the descriptors falls, elderly, and pharmaceutical preparations/medications/medicines/drugs or specific drug classes. A total of 340 articles presented data on prevalence, incidence, and risk factors associated with medication and falls or fall-related fractures, but only 6 pharmacoepidemiological studies were examined because they were conducted specifically in Brazilian samples.

    Full Text Available Este artigo analisa o uso de recursos florestais no Brasil, evidenciando que a destruição de nossas florestas e o uso insustentável dos remanescentes florestais sempre se associaram com as políticas desenvolvimentistas adotadas no País. Estas políticas, por sua vez, se fundamentaram nos principais modelos econômicos em voga a cada período. O trabalho apresenta uma discussão acerca da importância das florestas para uma nação e ressalta que o Brasil as está destruindo em grande escala, enquanto diversos outros países as ampliam. Este processo de desmatamento no Brasil já não se justifica pela necessidade de terra para a produção agropecuária. Por meio de um instrumental analítico, o trabalho verifica as políticas florestais e seus resultados desde o Brasil colônia e as associam com os principais modelos existentes a cada período. O trabalho também analisa o processo de reflorestamento no Brasil, demonstrando que o mesmo não compensa a perda de florestas nativas. Ao seu final, o artigo discute algumas políticas que permitem o uso racional dos recursos florestais no Brasil sem impedir a expansão de outras atividades econômicas.This paper analyzes the use of forests in Brazil, pointing out the destruction of native forests and its unsustainable uses are due to development policies. The latter is connected with the main economic models that prevailed during each time period. The paper discusses about the importance of forests for a nation and it points out Brazil is world’s number one in losing forests, while other countries are increasing their forests. That deforestation is not necessary in order to keep Brazil’s agriculture growing. The paper makes an analysis of forest policies and their results along Brazil’s history. The paper also analyzed the reforestation in Brazil and shows it is not compensating the deforestation process. At the end, the paper suggests some policies that are able to keep the expansion of

    Full Text Available Este artículo presenta los resultados de un estudio sobre la utilización que hacen los jóvenes andaluces de las redes sociales. Los objetivos fundamentales son: conocer los usos preferentes de las redes sociales, su frecuencia y los motivos que les impulsan a su utilización. Además se estudia si existen diferencias de sexo tanto en la frecuencia como en las motivaciones de uso. Se aplica un cuestionario para la recogida de datos. La muestra es de 1.487 adolescentes de Andalucía. Los resultados muestran que los jóvenes en su mayoría usan de manera habitual las redes sociales y se identifican dos vertientes motivacionales en su uso: una social y otra psicológica. No se hallan diferencias significativas entre sexos en cuanto a frecuencia de uso, pero sí en las motivaciones para su acceso. Las de los chicos son de tipo emocional, mientras que en las chicas predomina la motivación de carácter relacional. Los resultados obtenidos muestran coincidencias con investigaciones internacionales realizadas en contextos muy diferentes al presente estudio. En la discusión de resultados se plantean futuras líneas de trabajo, a la vez que se identifican implicaciones que los usos de las redes sociales tienen para la formación e integración social de una ciudadanía activa y participativa, así como para el enriquecimiento de dimensiones como el desarrollo del capital social y la educación.

    RIASSUNTO. La terapia farmacologica nei pazienti con disturbo da uso di alcol riveste un ruolo centrale nel progetto terapeutico, altamente contestualizzato in un approccio multidisciplinare. Sebbene i trattamenti non farmacologici per la dipendenza da alcol risultino ben strutturati e in continua evoluzione, dal punto di vista medico le possibilità di intervento sono realmente ristrette, con poche molecole a disposizione approvate per il disturbo da uso di alcol: nello specifico, l'acamprostato, il naltrexone e, più recentemente, il nalmefene tra gli anticraving; il disulfiram tra gli avversivanti. Nuovi approcci sperimentali stanno cercando di ampliare tale gamma attraverso l'utilizzo di farmaci off-label. Evidenze scientifiche devono supportare l'indicazione terapeutica, quest'ultima deve dimostrarsi "cucita" sulle esigenze del paziente e sulle comorbilità presenti tenendo conto del profilo bio-psico-sociale individuale. Fondamentale risulta il follow-up per valutare la ritenzione in trattamento e il monitoraggio degli outcome alcologici.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Descrever os medicamentos utilizados por gestantes que fizeram o pré-natal em serviços do SUS (Sistema Único de Saúde em cidades brasileiras. MÉTODOS: Utilizando-se um questionário estruturado, foram entrevistadas 5.564 gestantes entre a 21ª e a 28ª semanas de gravidez, que se apresentaram para consulta em serviço de pré-natal do SUS em seis grandes cidades brasileiras. As perguntas foram agrupadas em "uso orientado" para dor, cólica, enjôo, tosse e outros e em "medicamento orientado" para vitamina, ferro e flúor. Foi adotada a classificação de risco do FDA (Food and Drug Administration, entre 1991 e 1995. RESULTADOS: Do total de 5.564, 4.614 (83,8% das gestantes usaram pelo menos um medicamento durante a gestação, somando 9.556 medicamentos. Os medicamentos mais utilizados foram as vitaminas associadas a antianêmicos (33,5%, os medicamentos que atuam sobre o aparelho digestivo (31,3%, os analgésicos/antiinflamatórios (22,2%, os antianêmicos (19,8% e os antimicrobianos (11,1%.

CONCLUSÕES: Foram observadas grandes variações quanto ao uso de medicamentos, principalmente antianêmicos e vitaminas associadas a antianêmicos, entre as várias cidades estudadas, mostrando a ausência de um padrão nacional quanto ao uso desses medicamentos na gestação. Para uma proporção de 12,9% dos medicamentos utilizados, não foi localizada qualquer informação na literatura sobre a segurança para o uso durante a gestação. Essa proporção, somada aos 26,9% dos medicamentos classificados no grupo "C", mostra que 40% do uso de medicamentos na gestação são feitos sem bases definidas de segurança. Entretanto, medicamentos claramente contra-indicados durante a gestação corresponderam a apenas 3% dos 9

    2006-01-01

    Research and development works conducted in the Establishment for Nuclear Equipment (ZdAJ) were focused around 3 subject areas: an accelerator for cancer treatment, therapeutical tables, systems and methods for controlling objects that cross international borders. The new, medium energy accelerator for cancer therapy cases is being designed in the Establishment for several years. In 2005 progress was achieved. A physical part, containing an electron beam has been completed and the parameters of that beam make it useful for therapeutical purposes. Consequently, the work on designing and testing of beam control systems, ensuring its high stability, repetition of irradiation parameters and accuracy of dosage have been started. Results of these tests make it very probable that 2006 will be the final year of scientific works and in 2007 the new apparatus will be ready for sales. Therapeutical tables have become a leading product of ZdAJ IPJ. Their technical parameters, reliability and universality in uses are appreciated by many customers of ZdAJ. In 2005, the table Polkam 16 was registered by the national Office for Registration of Medical Equipment as the first product of ZdAJ that meets all technical and formal requirements of the safety mark CE. This allows sales of the product on the market of the European Union. The research and development part of designing a therapeutical table for uses in the total body irradiation technique was also concluded in 2005. After the September 11 terrorist attacks on WTC a matter of controlling international borders have become a priority for many countries. In 2005 in ZdAJ IPJ, we conducted many preliminary calculations and experiments analyzing systems of irradiation sources, both photon and neutron as well as systems of detection and designing of signals triggered by controlling objects crossing the border. The results so far have enabled us to formulate a research project which has been positively evaluated by experts and found

  11. Purex: process and equipment performance

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Orth, D.A.

    1986-01-01

    The Purex process is the solvent extraction system that uses tributyl phosphate as the extractant for separating uranium and plutonium from irradiated reactor fuels. Since the first flowsheet was proposed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 1950, the process has endured for over 30 years with only minor modifications. The spread of the technology was rapid, and worldwide use or research on Purex-type processes was reported by the time of the 1955 Geneva Conference. The overall performance of the process has been so good that there are no serious contenders for replacing it soon. This paper presents: process description; equipment performance (mixer-settlers, pulse columns, rapid contactors); fission product decontamination; solvent effects (solvent degradation products); and partitioning of uranium and plutonium

    1987-01-01

    A low cost automation of some instruments by means of simple electronic circuits and a microcomputer Apple IIe. type is discussed. The electronic circuits described are: a) a position detector including phototransistors connected as differential amplifier; b) a current source that, using the error signal of the position detector, changes the current through the coil of an electromagnetic balance to restore its zero position; c) a proportional temperature controller, zero volt switching to drive a furnace to a desired temperature; d) an interface temperature regulator-microcomputer to control the temperature regulator by software; e) a multiplexer for an analog input of a commercial interface. Those circuits are applied in a thermogravimetric equipment used also for vapours adsorption. A program in block diagram form is included and is able to record change of mass, time, furnace temperature and to drive the temperature regulator in order to have the heating rates or the temperature plateaux needed for the experiment.

    Full text: The main objective of the activity of the Establishment for Nuclear Equipment (ZdAJ) in 1999 was to obtain the ISO 9001 certificate. Work on this problem has been successfully completed. The changes introduced in agreement with requirements of ISO in supervising the construction, manufacturing and servicing eliminate possible deficiencies of our products and will pay in the future. Two new important ventures have been undertaken: design of an accelerator with two photon energies and a reconstruction of simulator directed towards better geometrical parameters. The completion of the improvements in accelerator is foreseen for the year 2002. The changes comprise almost all sub-assemblies of the device. The modernized simulator will be installed in the hospital already in the year 2000 - the ameliorations concern mainly the arm of the apparatus, collimator, driving gears and control system. Of course - apart from this, the routine production activity of the Establishment was continued in 1999. (author)

    2005-07-01

    Our objective was to assess the prevalence of protective equipment use and the motivation for using protective equipment among a sample of US female rugby players. We surveyed a convenience sample of 234 current US female rugby players from 14 teams participating in a US women's rugby tournament, obtaining self-reported demographic, rugby exposure, and protective equipment use information. Mouthguards were the most commonly used piece of protective equipment: 90.8% of players reported having always worn a mouthguard while playing or practicing rugby within their most recent 3 months of play. Fewer than 15% of players reported having always worn other types of protective equipment. Equipment use varied by playing position. Whereas over 80% of players in all other positions always wore a mouthguard, 66.7% of scrum halves reported always wearing one. Both backs and forwards reported wearing shoulder pads, but only forwards reported always wearing padded headgear. Mouthguards, padded headgear, and shoulder pads were worn "to prevent injury," whereas ankle braces, neoprene sleeves, and athletic tape on joints were worn "to protect a current/recent injury." This is the first study of female rugby players to assess the prevalence of protective equipment use by playing position and the motivation for using protective equipment. With the exception of mouthguards, US female rugby players infrequently use protective equipment. Protective equipment use varies by playing position. Some types of protective equipment appear to be used as primary prevention mechanisms, whereas others are used as secondary or tertiary prevention mechanisms.

  16. Changing nature of equipment and parts qualification

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Bucci, R.M.

    1988-01-01

    Ideally, the original supplier of a piece of nuclear safety-related equipment has performed a qualification program and will continue to support that equipment throughout the lifetime of the nuclear power plants in which in equipment is installed. The supplier's nuclear quality assurance program will be maintained and he will continue to offer all necessary replacement parts. These parts will be identical to the original parts, certified to the original purchase order requirements, and the parts will be offered at competitive prices. Due to the changing nature of the nuclear plant equipment market, however, one or more of those ideal features are frequently unavailable when safety-related replacement equipment or parts are required. Thus, the process of equipment and parts qualification has had to adjust in order to ensure obtaining qualified replacements when needed. This paper presents some new directions taken in the qualification of replacement equipment and parts to meet changes in the marketplace

    Full Text Available De modo geral, a aplicação racional de materiais de construção requer o desenvolvimento ou aprimoramento de técnicas construtivas. Nesse sentido, a utilização do concreto e da madeira, materiais tradicionais e de grande aceitação em construções rurais, formando estruturas mistas, constitui-se em uma solução viável por apresentar desempenhos estrutural e econômico adequados, bem como boa durabilidade. Particularmente, a efetivação desse sistema estrutural deve ser assegurada por meio de uma ligação na interface dos materiais, podendo ser do tipo discreta (elementos metálicos: parafusos, barras de aço, pregos, etc. ou contínua (adesivo epóxi. Na construção civil, diversos tipos de aplicações podem ser contemplados com esse sistema estrutural, tais como restaurações ou construções de novas pontes. De fato, em estradas vicinais, existe um grande número de pontes de madeira que necessitam de reformas e também há a necessidade de construção de pontes novas. De maneira geral, as pontes são expostas a condições severas de intemperismo e carregamento, necessitando, desse modo, de estudos cuidadosos para que se possa avaliar com maior precisão os mecanismos da ligação, bem como o comportamento da estrutura mista em toda sua vida útil. Nesse contexto, ao serem analisados, neste artigo, os diversos aspectos que envolvem o desempenho das estruturas mistas em madeira-concreto e também o comportamento mecânico das ligações nessas estruturas, pode-se concluir que essa técnica é viável para construção de pontes das estradas vicinais. Além disso, pesquisas adicionais sobre efeitos de carregamento de longa duração, variações de temperatura e umidade são necessárias para melhorar os modelos de simulações.In general, the rational application of construction materials requires the development or improvement of building techniques.

Os resultados indicam a rejeição da hipótese nula de constância dos vetores de cointegração e, ainda, a não rejeição da hipótese nula de desigualdade entre valor fundamental e preço da ação. Tais resultados são consistentes com os obtidos por Bierens e Martins (2010 e não consistentes com a teoria das expectativas racionais de Muth (1961. Conclui-se, portanto, que os investidores possuem diferentes expectativas de retorno para diferentes períodos futuros, que os resultados sugerem a validação do modelo utilizado e que existe a possibilidade da ocorrência de movimentos especulativos suportados pela racionalidade ou bolhas especulativas racionais.The present study examines the long-term relationship between aggregate price and dividend data and the corresponding mechanism for shortterm error correction using the rational valuation formula and time-varying cointegration and based on Muth

    Since Uruguay did not have an study on X-ray equipment, students of Radiation Protection course (RP) made this field work throughout the country. The objective is to obtain information on the number and kind of X-ray radiodiagnostic equipment. Some of the results are: there are 666 radiodiagnostic equipment. The ratio of population to equipment is 4.515 to 1 in the capital and the mean rate in the rest of the country is 4.383 to one, with a minimum of 1.707 and a maximum of 8.220. The Public Health Ministry (MSP) and the Instituciones de Asistencia Medica Colectiva (a kind of private heath assurance) (IAMC) have less equipment in the capital than in the rest of the country. The 37% of the capital population receives assistance through the IAMC , with a 42.5 % of the equipment. Uruguay except the capital has 18 districts and 17 computed tomography equipment, from which only 3 belong to the MSP. Five districts do not have any. In Montevideo, there are 11.500 females over forty years of age per X-ray mammography equipment, and this relation in the rest of the country is 13.900. There are 21 X-ray Interventional radiology equipment, 16 of them are in the capital. Is from relating the radiodiagnostic equipment, the population and the procedures, that quality assistance indicators emerge. This owns high importance on the way to create a RP National Programme.

  2. Maintenance program guidelines for programmatic equipment

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    1994-11-01

    The Division Directors at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory are responsible for implementing a maintenance program for research equipment (also referred to as programmatic equipment) assigned to them. The program must allow maintenance to be accomplished in a manner that promotes operational safety, environmental protection and compliance, and cost effectiveness; that preserves the intended functions of the facilities and equipment; and that supports the programmatic mission of the Laboratory. Programmatic equipment -- such as accelerators, lasers, radiation detection equipment, and glove boxes -- is dedicated specifically to research. Installed equipment, by contrast, includes the mechanical and electrical systems installed as part of basic building construction, equipment essential to the normal functioning of the facility and its intended use. Examples of installed equipment are heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems; elevators; and communications systems. The LBL Operating and Assurance Program Plan (PUB-3111, Revision 4) requires that a maintenance program be prepared for programmatic equipment and defines the basic maintenance program elements. Such a program of regular, documented maintenance is vital to the safety and quality of research activities. As a part of that support, this document offers guidance to Laboratory organizations for developing their maintenance programs. It clarifies the maintenance requirements of the Operating and Assurance Program (OAP) and presents an approach that, while not the only possibility, can be expected to produce an effective maintenance program for research equipment belonging to the Laboratory's organizations

    In an inspection device for a buried equipment, a rail is suspended at the upper portion of a vessel of a pit-vessel type pump buried in a plant building floor, and a truck movable vertical in the vessel along the rail, and an ultrasonic wave probe contained in the truck and urged to the vessel by an electromagnet are disposed. In addition, an elevator moving vertically along a shaft is disposed, and an arm having the ultrasonic probe disposed at the end portion and driven by a piston are disposed to the elevator. The ultrasonic wave probe moves vertically together with the truck along the rail in the vessel while being urged to the vessel by the electromagnet to inspect and measure the state at the inner and outer surfaces of the vessel. Further, the length of the arm is controlled so as to set a predetermined distance between the ultrasonic wave probe and the vessel. Subsequently, the elevator is moved vertically along a shaft passing through a shaft hole of a mount, and the shaft is rotated thereby enabling to inspect and measure the state of the inner and outer surfaces of the vessel.

    Detection of radiation is the common purpose of all equipment's and instruments used in radioisotope laboratories. The first and most important instrument that was used in nuclear medicine was Geiger tube developed by H.W. Geiger as early in 1908. He in association with Mueller developed the so called Geiger-Muller tube (GM tube) which could be used to detect beta and gamma radiations. In spite of its severe limitations, GM tube remained the only external counting device until 1949. In 1948, Kallman reported that the scintillations can be detected and amplified with the help of photomultiplier tubes (PMTs). In comparison with gas filled detectors, scintillation detectors have two principal advantages that augment their use in nuclear medicine. Firstly, they are capable of much higher counting rates because of fast resolving times and secondly, because they are much more efficient for gamma ray detection. The scintillation detector is the most basic block of any modern radioisotope detection instrument like rate meter, counter, scanner, gamma camera or single photon emission computed tomography.

    The knowledge of how the environment and load of organic material in general and especially polymers and lubricants, is affecting the degradation of important properties, have increased during the last decade. However the restrictions using established additives like some color pigments due to their poisonousness e.g. pigments based at cadmium, lead, mercury etc. have caused problems when replacing additives to polymers. The replacement additives have often been used in new design without going through the required material qualification procedure. There have also been observed that some non-qualified and non-approved materials have been installed in some power plants due to false documentation. There are also a lot of new manufacturers, of materials similar to the previously qualified materials, active at the market. This increases the difficulty to ensure that the required material quality is used. New materials, new additives and new manufacturers makes if more and more difficult to assure that the expected material is present. This causes more strict demands of how the new materials often used in equipment at type-testing and in replacement materials are analyzed and documented. By implementing new steps for chemical, mechanical and electrical analysis and increase the general quality assurance content this issue can be managed. (authors)

    Heavy water management is a major factor in deciding the economics of the PHWRs. Hence it is necessary to have an efficient recovery system, for the heavy water vapour escaping from various process systems and maintain a dry atmosphere in the recovery areas. While the basic objective of the atmospheric drying system is to maximize recovery and to minimize stack losses, it is equally important to optimally design the system with due consideration to operational and maintenance aspects. At present, heavy water vapour recovery in the existing Nuclear Power Plants (NPPs) is carried out by dryers of dual fixed bed design. While moving bed design could have some advantages, this has not been adopted so far because of the cumbersome mechanical design involved and special requirements for nuclear application. Developmental work done in this direction has resulted in compact alternative designs. In one of the designs, the change over from adsorption to regeneration is achieved by rotating the bed slowly. This concept is further refined in another alternative using a dessicant wheel. This paper contains brief equipment description of different designs; enumerates the design requirements of an atmospheric drying system for reactor building; describes steps for designing fixed bed type D{sub 2}O vapour recovery system, and highlights advances in dryer technology.

    Biotechnology is undergoing a period of rapid and sustained growth, a trend which is expected to continue as the general population ages and as new medical treatments and products are conceived. As pharmaceutical and biomedical companies continue to search for improved methods of production and, for answers to basic research questions, they will seek out new avenues of research. Space processing on the International Space Station (ISS) offers such an opportunity! Space is rapidly becoming an industrial laboratory for biotechnology research and processing. Space bioprocessing offers exciting possibilities for developing new pharmaceuticals and medical treatments, which can be used to benefit mankind on Earth. It also represents a new economic frontier for the private sector. For over eight years, the thermal carrier development team at SHOT has been working with government and commercial sector scientists who are conducting microgravity experiments that require thermal control. SHOT realized several years ago that the hardware currently being used for microgravity thermal control was becoming obsolete. It is likely that the government, academic, and industrial bioscience community members could utilize SHOT's hardware as a replacement to their current microgravity thermal carrier equipment. Moreover, SHOT is aware of several international scientists interested in utilizing our space qualified thermal carrier. SHOT's economic financing concept could be extremely beneficial to the international participant, while providing a source of geographic return for their particular region. Beginning in 2000, flight qualified thermal carriers are expected to be available to both the private and government sectors. .

    1999-01-01

    Changes to the 'Act respecting the use of petroleum products' have been announced effective May 1, 1999. The changes have been made to reduce problems which can be attributed to petroleum product leaks. The new regulations will make owners and users of petroleum equipment, including underground and above-ground storage equipment and commercial storage tanks, more accountable for the use of their own equipment. The emphasis in the new regulations is based upon the storage capacity of petroleum equipment and the risks associated with this equipment, rather than the on the activities of the owners concerned. Accordingly, the new regulations call for stricter requirements for high-risk equipment, a private equipment inspection plan, a two-year operating permit, replacing the current permits and certificates, a tariff structure based on the risks associated with the equipment, and deregulation of commercial activities involving petroleum products that require no equipment. Additionally, the amendments to the Act transfer responsibility for administration to the Regie du batiment and to the Ministere des Transports. Details of each of these changes are explained

    High-power hadron accelerators have strict limits on fractional beam loss. In principle, once a high-quality beam is set up in an acceptable state, beam loss should remain steady. However, in practice, there are many trips in operational machines, owing to excessive beam loss. This paper deals with monitoring equipment health to identify precursor signals that indicate an issue with equipment that will lead to unacceptable beam loss. To this end, a variety of equipment and beam signal measurements are described. In particular, several operational examples from the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) of deteriorating equipment functionality leading to beam loss are reported.

    1 - Description of problem or function: PROMSYS is a computer system designed to automate the scheduling of routine maintenance and inspection of plant equipment. This 'programmed maintenance' provides the detailed planning and accomplishment of lubrication, inspection, and similar repetitive maintenance activities which can be scheduled at specified predetermined intervals throughout the year. The equipment items included are the typical pumps, blowers, motors, compressors, automotive equipment, refrigeration units, filtering systems, machine shop equipment, cranes, elevators, motor-generator sets, and electrical switchgear found throughout industry, as well as cell ventilation, shielding, containment, and material handling equipment unique to nuclear research and development facilities. Four related programs are used to produce sorted schedule lists, delinquent work lists, and optional master lists. Five additional programs are used to create and maintain records of all scheduled and unscheduled maintenance history. 2 - Method of solution: Service specifications and frequency are established and stored. The computer program reviews schedules weekly and prints, on schedule cards, instructions for service that is due the following week. The basic output from the computer program comes in two forms: programmed-maintenance schedule cards and programmed-maintenance data sheets. The data sheets can be issued in numerical building, route, and location number sequence as equipment lists, grouped for work assigned to a particular foreman as the foreman's equipment list, or grouped by work charged to a particular work order as the work-order list. Data sheets grouped by equipment classification are called the equipment classification list

    To ensure long-term safe and reliable plant operation, equipment operability and availability must also be ensured by setting a group of processes to be established within the nuclear power plant. Equipment reliability process represents the integration and coordination of important equipment reliability activities into one process, which enables equipment performance and condition monitoring, preventive maintenance activities development, implementation and optimization, continuous improvement of the processes and long term planning. The initiative for introducing systematic approach for equipment reliability assuring came from US nuclear industry guided by INPO (Institute of Nuclear Power Operations) and by participation of several US nuclear utilities. As a result of the initiative, first edition of INPO document AP-913, 'Equipment Reliability Process Description' was issued and it became a basic document for implementation of equipment reliability process for the whole nuclear industry. The scope of equipment reliability process in Krsko NPP consists of following programs: equipment criticality classification, preventive maintenance program, corrective action program, system health reports and long-term investment plan. By implementation, supervision and continuous improvement of those programs, guided by more than thirty years of operating experience, Krsko NPP will continue to be on a track of safe and reliable operation until the end of prolonged life time.

    Intensification of industrial production, increasing citizens’ living standards, expanding the consumer assortment mean in the production - consumption cycle a constantly increasing occurrence of waste material, which by its very nature must be considered as a source of useful raw materials in all branches of human activity. In addition to strict legislative requirements, a number of circumstances characterize waste management. It is mainly extensive transport associated with the handling and storage of large volumes of substances with a large assortment of materials (substances of all possible physical and chemical properties) and high demands on reliability and time coordination of follow-up processes. Considerable differences in transport distances, a large number of sources, processors and customers, and not least seasonal fluctuations in waste and strong price pressures cannot be overlooked. This highlights the importance of logistics in waste management. Soils that are contaminated with oil and petroleum products are hazardous industrial waste. Methods of industrial waste disposal are landfilling, biological processes, thermal processes and physical and chemical methods. The paper focuses on the possibilities of degradation of oil pollution, in particular biodegradation by bacteria, which is relatively low-cost among technologies. It is necessary to win the fight with time so that no ground water is contaminated. We have developed two additional devices to help reduce oil accident of smaller ranges. In the case of such an oil accident, it is necessary to carry out the permeability test of contaminated soil in time and, on this basis, to choose the technology appropriate to the accident - either in-sit biodegradation - at the site of the accident, or on-sit - to remove the soil and biodegrade it on the designated deposits. A special injection drill was developed for in-sit biodegradation, tossing and aeration equipment of the extracted soil was developed for

    For centuries, mining has utilized drill and blast as the primary method of rock excavation. Although this technique has undergone significant improvements, it still remains a cyclic, labor intensive operation with inherent safety hazards. Other drawbacks include damage to the surrounding ground, creation of blast vibrations, rough excavation walls resulting in increased ventilation requirements, and the lack of selective mining ability. Perhaps the most important shortcoming of drill and blast is that it is not conducive to full implementation of automation or robotics technologies. Numerous attempts have been made in the past to automate drill and blast operations to remove personnel from the hazardous work environment. Although most of the concepts devised look promising on paper, none of them was found workable on a sustained production basis. In particular, the problem of serious damage to equipment during the blasting cycle could not be resolved regardless of the amount of charge used in excavation. Since drill and blast is not capable of meeting the requirements of a fully automated rock fragmentation method, its role is bound to gradually decrease. Mechanical excavation, in contrast, is highly suitable to automation because it is a continuous process and does not involve any explosives. Many of the basic principles and trends controlling the design of an earth-based mechanical excavator will hold in an extraterrestrial environment such as on the lunar surface. However, the economic and physical limitations for transporting materials to space will require major rethinking of these machines. In concept, then, a lunar mechanical excavator will look and perform significantly different from one designed for use here on earth. This viewgraph presentation gives an overview of such mechanical excavator systems.

  13. Introdução a uma epistemologia do uso

    Arley Ramos Moreno

    Full Text Available Em nosso texto, apresentando uma concepção de pragmática filosófica e tendo em conta uma exposição wittgensteiniana dos jogos de linguagem, pretendemos mostrar que a descrição terapêutica dos usos das palavras, através do procedimento de variações metodológicas de suas aplicações diversificadas, sugere uma série preciosa de elementos que permitem a exploração do conceito de uso como indicativo de um campo esclarecedor da atividade epistêmica de constituição da significação, através do trabalho com a linguagem e elementos do mundo extralinguístico. Desse ponto de vista, a atividade epistêmica não se limitaria a elaborar modelos cognitivos, mas deveria ser entendida como constitutiva da significação em geral, sendo as formas cognitivas um capítulo apenas, ainda que importante, da atividade mais geral de constituição que define o que é o objeto - ou melhor, define o seu sentido.

    Full Text Available La disponibilidad de agua es el principal factor limitante de la producción agrícola y ganadera en ambientes de clima mediterráneo. Limitación que, ante las previsiones de Cambio Climático Global realizadas por organismo internacionales, serán mucho mayores en los próximos años. En este escenario, la eficiencia en el uso de los recursos hídricos debe ser un aspecto transversal de las políticas públicas que debe, por tanto, ser afrontado desde diversos puntos de vista. En este sentido, uno de los temas claves a considerar es la eficiencia con la que las plantas usan el agua. El objetivo de este trabajo es hacer una revisión de los diferentes aspectos relacionados con este tema, considerando las diferentes escalas a las que se estudia la eficiencia en el uso del agua por las plantas (EUA, desde la hoja hasta el cultivo o el ecosistema. Así, se abordan las dificultades técnicas que existen para medir, de una forma precisa, la EUA de un cultivo o de un ecosistema, la importancia del ambiente y de las prácticas agronómicas como determinantes de la EUA, la diversidad genética inter e intraespecífica, y las implicaciones prácticas de estos factores a la hora de incrementar la EUA.

Método: Estudio transversal, descriptivo, realizado por medio de un instrumento estructurado con 181 puérperas adolescentes que tuvieron sus partos en el hospital participante de la investigación. Los datos fueron recolectados en el período de diciembre de 2008 a diciembre de 2009. Resultados: El 64,1% de las puérperas usaba algún método contraceptivo antes del embarazo; los métodos más utilizados fueron el anticoncepcional oral (51% y el preservativo masculino (29%. Para el 75% de las adolescentes el embarazo fue planeado y justificado por el deseo y la voluntad propia de experimentar la maternidad. Conclusión: Considerando que casi la mitad de las adolescentes entrevistadas deseaba el embarazo, se deduce que investigar y discutir apenas el uso o no de los métodos contraceptivos no es adecuado. Es necesario profundizar las investigaciones acerca de los significados de ser madre en la adolescencia.

    A vibration welding system includes vibration welding equipment having a welding horn and anvil, a host device, a check station, and a robot. The robot moves the horn and anvil via an arm to the check station. Sensors, e.g., temperature sensors, are positioned with respect to the welding equipment. Additional sensors are positioned with respect to the check station, including a pressure-sensitive array. The host device, which monitors a condition of the welding equipment, measures signals via the sensors positioned with respect to the welding equipment when the horn is actively forming a weld. The robot moves the horn and anvil to the check station, activates the check station sensors at the check station, and determines a condition of the welding equipment by processing the received signals. Acoustic, force, temperature, displacement, amplitude, and/or attitude/gyroscopic sensors may be used.

    Kovasznay, Leslie S G

    1954-01-01

    Hot wire turbulence-measuring equipment has been developed to meet the more stringent requirements involved in the measurement of fluctuations in flow parameters at supersonic velocities. The higher mean speed necessitates the resolution of higher frequency components than at low speed, and the relatively low turbulence level present at supersonic speed makes necessary an improved noise level for the equipment. The equipment covers the frequency range from 2 to about 70,000 cycles per second. Constant-current operation is employed. Compensation for hot-wire lag is adjusted manually using square-wave testing to indicate proper setting. These and other features make the equipment adaptable to all-purpose turbulence work with improved utility and accuracy over that of older types of equipment. Sample measurements are given to demonstrate the performance.

    The Feed Materials Production Center (FMPC) is the United States Department of Energy's storage facility for thorium. FMPC thorium handling and overpacking projects ensure the continued safe handling and storage of the thorium inventory until final disposition of the materials is determined and implemented. The handling and overpacking of the thorium materials requires the design of a system that utilizes remote handling and overpacking equipment not currently utilized at the FMPC in the handling of uranium materials. The use of remote equipment significantly reduces radiation exposure to personnel during the handling and overpacking efforts. The design system combines existing technologies from the nuclear industry, the materials processing and handling industry and the mining industry. The designed system consists of a modified fork lift truck for the transport of thorium containers, automated equipment for material identification and inventory control, and remote handling and overpacking equipment for material identification and inventory control, and remote handling and overpacking equipment for repackaging of the thorium materials

    Skaler, F.; Djetelic, N.

    2006-01-01

    Operation that is safe, reliable, effective and acceptable to public is the common message in a mission statement of commercial nuclear power plants (NPPs). To fulfill these goals, nuclear industry, among other areas, has to focus on: 1 Human Performance (HU) and 2 Equipment Reliability (EQ). The performance objective of HU is as follows: The behaviors of all personnel result in safe and reliable station operation. While unwanted human behaviors in operations mostly result directly in the event, the behavior flaws either in the area of maintenance or engineering usually cause decreased equipment reliability. Unsatisfied Human performance leads even the best designed power plants into significant operating events, which can be found as well-known examples in nuclear industry. Equipment reliability is today recognized as the key to success. While the human performance at most NPPs has been improving since the start of WANO / INPO / IAEA evaluations, the open energy market has forced the nuclear plants to reduce production costs and operate more reliably and effectively. The balance between these two (opposite) goals has made equipment reliability even more important for safe, reliable and efficient production. Insisting on on-line operation by ignoring some principles of safety could nowadays in a well-developed safety culture and human performance environment exceed the cost of electricity losses. In last decade the leading USA nuclear companies put a lot of effort to improve equipment reliability primarily based on INPO Equipment Reliability Program AP-913 at their NPP stations. The Equipment Reliability Program is the key program not only for safe and reliable operation, but also for the Life Cycle Management and Aging Management on the way to the nuclear power plant life extension. The purpose of Equipment Reliability process is to identify, organize, integrate and coordinate equipment reliability activities (preventive and predictive maintenance, maintenance

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVES: To understand the opinion of the parents about the baby walker and compare the age of gait acquisition between infants that used a walker and those that did not. METHODS: In this quali-quantitative study, an interview involving a semi-structured questionnaire was carried out with 26 parents, 14 of whose infants used the equipment (BWG and 12 of whose infants did not (NBWG prior to gait acquisition. After extensive content analysis, categories for interpreting the results emerged. For data triangulation, the age of gait acquisition was documented by weekly telephone contact. Student's t-test was used for comparison between groups with a significance level of α=0.05. RESULTS: The following categories were identified in the parents' reports: a information about the baby walker; b doubt/decision to use it vs. certainty about not using it; c beliefs about the use of a baby-walker; and d benefits and harm from use. The age of independent gait acquisition did not differ between groups (p=0.837: BWG initiated gait at 376.17 (SD=32.62 days and NBWG did so at 378.75 (SD=27.99 days. CONCLUSIONS: The beliefs and feelings that permeate the decision to use a baby walker illustrate the different rationales adopted by parents about the role of this equipment in the child's development of gait and autonomy.

    The safety code for Telegamma Therapy Equipment and Installations, (AERB/SC/MED-1) and safety code for Brachytherapy Sources, Equipment and Installations, (AERB/SC/MED-3) were issued by AERB in 1986 and 1988 respectively. These codes specified mandatory requirements for radiation therapy facilities, covering the entire spectrum of operations ranging from the setting up of a facility to its ultimate decommissioning, including procedures to be followed during emergency situations. The codes also stipulated requirements of personnel and their responsibilities. With the advent of new techniques and equipment such as 3D-conformal radiation therapy, intensity modulated radiation therapy, image guided radiation therapy, treatment planning system, stereotactic radiosurgery, stereotactic radiotherapy, portal imaging, integrated brachytherapy and endovascular brachytherapy during the last two decades, AERB desires that these codes be revised and merged into a single code titled Radiation Therapy Sources, Equipment, and Installations
