Impact of rural residential coal combustion on air pollution in Shandong, China.
This study therefore investigated the impacts of RRCC on air pollution based on detailed household heating data obtained from intensive face-to-face interviews in Shandong province, China. The total contributions and specific contributions of coal, stoves, and coal-stove combinations to air pollution were simulated using the WRF-CAMx-PSAT model. The RRCC for heating had a considerable impact on air pollution, contributing 36.1, 9.1, and 16.1% of atmospheric SO2, NOx, and PM2.5 in winter, respectively. Different coal-stove combinations had different impacts on air pollution and mitigation efficiencies. The combination of bituminous coal and advanced coal stoves was the dominant contributor to air pollution, comprising 60.3-68.8% of the total RRCC contribution to different air pollutants. Sensitivity analyses indicated that bituminous coal burnt in a traditional stove had the highest mitigation efficiency (0.67 μg·m-3/10 kt) for atmospheric PM2.5 pollution, 4.1 times higher than that of anthracite briquette coal burnt in advanced coal stoves. Moreover, although RRCC is a near-surface emission source, it contributed considerably to regional pollution. Non-local RRCC emissions accounted for 21.8-74.6, 15.5-72.3, and 35.3-79.9% of the total contribution to SO2, NOx, and PM2.5 in different cities, respectively. The findings of this study improve understanding on the environmental impacts of rural emissions and can provide scientific support for the formulation o...
Fire can be made useful for various purposes. However, uncontrollable fire may result in property damage and human death. The major factor of fire deaths is due to excessive smoke inhalation. Therefore, early detection of fire is crucial in fire detection ...

I am a recent grad who started working as a nocturnist. I was wondering what the average # of admissions is for a nocturnist. I don't know if I'm slow or what but I am having hard time seeing 10-12 pts every night. There is around 5-10 more patients that I don't get to that I have to bridge. So total of like 10-12 admits that I get through completely every night. But 5-10 more I have to bridge. At first, I thought I could handle anything. But now I'm getting burned out a little. So I was... Question about # of new admits for Nocturnist

Injury is the most common cause of death in Americans under the age of 46; 35-40% of all injured patients have evidence of psychoactive substance use and 40-50% of admitted patients have a current substance use disorder (SUD) diagnosis.[2 –4] Injuries encompass all external causes of death, including intentional harm against others or oneself, poisonings, vehicle crashes, falls, burns, and drowning. Psychoactive substances include alcohol, cannabis, cocaine, and both prescription and illicit opioids.

In conclusion, this “Undulate-design Double Abdominal flaps Insertion-Pouch for Upper limb Reconstruction” is a new and effective solution for circumferential defects of wrist and hand.
Conclusions Although plastic surgery trainees endorse gradual operative autonomy overall, a majority of final-year trainees do not perceive supervision only independence in the majority of core procedures queried. Faculties perceive higher trainee operative autonomy than trainees for most procedures. Discordant approaches to case logging were identified both among trainees and between trainees and faculties. Standardization may improve both progression and assessment of operative autonomy in plastic surgery training.
