Executive Summary The chronic and severe shortage of skilled Information Technology (IT) workers is well documented. At the same time, many regional and national governments have made the provision of information technology services an important element in their economic development strategies. It is against this background that Georgia Southern University(More)
The relationship between total and free phenytoin levels and drug toxicity was studied in 80 patients. Twenty-four were taking phenytoin alone. Drug toxicity was assessed by a "blind" rater using an eight-point standardized scoring system. The mean free phenytoin fraction was 0.076 in patients taking phenytoin alone or phenytoin and carbamazepine and 0.11(More)
Nephrocalcinosis is a chronic tubulointerstitial nephropathy characterized by tubular calcium phosphate deposition and slowly progressive renal insufficiency. We report a novel association of acute nephrocalcinosis and acute renal failure (ARF) with colonoscopy preceded by a bowel-cleansing regimen consisting of oral sodium phosphate solution (OSPS). A(More)
Despite the fact that demand for employees with skills in computing still exceeds supply, there has been a steady decline in the number of women entering and graduating from computer science programs. Many attempts have been made to remedy the situation. A recurrent theme for both engineering and computer science programs is that programs can be made more(More)
Students selecting information-based degree programs such as Information Systems (IS), Computer Science (CS), and Information Technology (IT) are entering into rigorous programs comprised of demanding classes. On the surface it would seem that these students would be aware of the skills and/or attributes needed for success in these difficult programs. It(More)
OBJECTIVE Partial liquid ventilation with the perfluorochemical, perflubron, has been shown to improve lung mechanics and enhance gas exchange in the treatment of severe acute lung injury. However, the most effective strategy to provide optimal intrapulmonary distribution of perflubron has not been fully accessed. The objective of this study was to examine(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine dose-response relationships regarding the efficiency of gas exchange and hemodynamic function during high-frequency oscillation and partial liquid ventilation (HFO-PLV) of the perfluorocarbon (PFC)-treated lung in a model of acute lung injury. SETTING An animal research laboratory in a university medical center. DESIGN A(More)
Students selecting information-based degree programs such as Information Systems (IS), Computer Science (CS), and Information Technology (IT) are entering into programs comprised of many analytical and technical classes. It would seem that if these programs are meeting their objectives, the skills and attributes these students believe lead to academic(More)
