The respirator performance rating table (PRT) scheme has been offered as a way to organize physiological information to be useful for mask design. Designers do not usually deal exclusively with one kind or another of mask physiological effect. This paper presents normal mask design modules and how they relate to mask physiological effects as given in the(More)
The ultimate goal for respirator mask designers is computer-aided design. Mask design, however, is a very complex operation, with many different interrelationships. Current knowledge does not allow significant incorporation of physiological information into mask design. Rather, physiological information is usually gathered during mask evaluation, after the(More)
One of the most important psychological effects of early severe or profound deafness is an impairment in natural language-processing ability, with a consequent reduction in communicative skill secondary to the sensory deficit. Prelingual damage blocks the development of certain sequential/syntactical skills necessary for the acquisition of normal linguistic(More)
The advent of hypertext and multimedia has opened up tremendous opportunities for online documentation. Traditional methods of document design often prove inadequate for coping with the complexity of large online documentation projects. We propose that the principles of object-oriented design, originally developed to address software complexity, can also be(More)
Respirator performance rating tables have been constructed for hot, humid (29 degrees C, 95% RH); hot, dry (49 degrees C, 30% RH); and cold, dry (-32 degrees C, 70% RH) conditions. These tables convey expected wearer performance percentages compared to unmasked workers for various mask elements and work rates. The hot, humid condition was found to be the(More)
Federal [U.S.] law and the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations mandate plans and mechanisms for response by hospitals to hazardous material incidents/accidents be developed and implemented. This paper describes the response of the University Hospitals of Cleveland to these regulations and to the anticipated needs of the(More)
