Book selection from Marc tapes by Jane Wainwright( Book )

5 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In April 1971 the Aslib Research and Development Department began a study on selective dissemination from marc tapes. The aim of the project was to explore the technical and economic feasibility of providing selective notifications of current books, by extraction from marc tapes, to specialized libraries. Typical of the potential customers envisaged would be Aslib member organizations. A comparison would be made of the utility of the various elements in the marc record as search keys. The project was planned in six phases: (1) planning and program specification for marc file creation and searching; (2) programing; (3) exploratory work with test file; (4) pilot operation with users; (5) analysis of results, conclusions, report; and, (6) market survey. This report covers the first five phases of the project. (Author/SJ)

The influence of bolus to infusion delays on plasma Tissue Plasminogen Activator levels( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract Background Estimates of neuronal loss in acute ischemic stroke show that the typical patient may lose 1·9 million neurons each minute that treatment is delayed. Consequently, significant emphasis has been placed on early evaluation and thrombolysis with tissue plasminogen activator (TPA), the only approved thrombolytic therapy. TPA should be administered as a bolus followed by an immediate infusion because of its short half life. However, in the real life clinical situation, delays in starting the infusion after the bolus can occur. Similarly, once infusion has started, interruptions in the infusion of TPA can also occur. These scenarios may result in lower serum concentrations which could decrease the effectiveness of thrombolysis. We sought to simulate, the influence of bolus infusion delays and also the influence of different intervals of interruptions in the infusion of TPA on serum TPA concentrations. Methods We simulated the effect of multiple intervals of delay after the bolus on serum TPA concentrations using known pharmacokinetics parameters of TPA. The effect of different intervals of interruptions in the infusion of TPA was also determined. The effect of rebolusing with TPA on serum concentrations in the event of significant bolus to infusion delays or significant infusion interruption was also simulated. Results Our data show that delays in starting the infusion may have significant effects on serum TPA concentrations. After the initial bolus, there is a rapid decrease in serum TPA concentrations unless the infusion is started immediately. Greater than 5 min delays in starting the infusion results in a slow gradual increase in serum TPA levels and levels stay well below the target concentrations for significant periods of time. Similarly, interruptions in the infusion of TPA lasting longer than 5 min can also significantly influence TPA levels. Rebolusing with TPA in these scenarios rapidly restores TPA levels to target concentrations. Conclusion Because of its short half life, TPA should be administered as a bolus followed by an immediate infusion. Bolus to infusion delays or interruptions in the infusion of TPA after the bolus may significantly impact serum TPA levels and may reduce the efficacy of thrombolysis. Protocols or administration regimens should be employed to prevent delays or interruptions in the infusion. When delays do occur, rebolusing of TPA may be needed to rapidly restore TPA to target levels

Why Use a Minicomputer? Some Factors Affecting Their Selection by Jane Wainwright( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A study of computer facilities in British libraries highlighted the respective benefits and disadvantages of using the parent institution's central computer or using a dedicated minicomputer. The large computer's technical advantages include greater opportunities for sharing or buying operational software, and the availability of experienced staff. The maintenance problems are not for the library to solve. The computer is capable of handling the large sorts and large files characteristic of library processing. Greater availability of higher level languages speeds up the development of a system and aids the unavoidable change to new equipment. With a minicomputer the library has control over access, is independent of the idiosyncrasies of the computer center, and is secure for the life of the equipment. The system will be tailor-made for the library but capable of expansion. In exchange for these benefits, the library has the responsibility of selecting, financing, operating, and maintaining the system. (Author/PF)
