Operating room design and its impact on operating room economics
Redesigning perioperative systems can increase operating room throughput, but not all case mixes benefit from the required additional resources and hospitals should choose judiciously if, and to what degree, high throughput environments are implemented.
Reducing non-operative time : methods and impact on operating room economics
The benefits of introducing the methods outweigh their costs, but it is cautioned that hospitals need to increase their caseload of short procedures to realise these benefits.
Increasing operating room throughput via parallel processing may not require extra resources.
Electroluminescence of ZnS Lumocen Devices Containing Rare‐Earth and Transition‐Metal Fluorides
ZnS LUMOCEN (luminescence from molecular centers) films typically 2000‐A thick doped with rare‐earth and transition‐metal fluorides have been fabricated by vacuum coevaporation. Details of the…
Hot‐Electron Impact Excitation of Tb3+ Luminescence in ZnS: Tb3+ Thin Films
- D. Krupka
- 1 February 1972
It is experimentally demonstrated in a new and direct manner that electroluminescence in thin films of ZnS: Tb3+ is excited by the direct impact of hot electrons on the Tb3+ ions. The scheme consists…
The impact on hospitals of reducing surgical complications suggests many will need shared savings programs with payers.
It is found that if a hospital's surgical inpatient volume is not growing, such a program results in negative cash flow, and if the hospital can sufficiently reduce the average length-of-stay for surgical patients without complications, the cash flow could be positive.

On the use of phosphors excited by low-energy electrons in a gas-discharge flat-panel display
A gas-discharge flat-panel display device has been constructed in which the light output is white and the color is independent of intensity. The device is based on the Burroughs Self-Scan®structure.…

The electrolytic zinc plant, with a capacity 75 000 tonnes per year, is a part of Zaklady Gorniczo-Hutnicze BOLESLAW. It is the biggest zinc producer in Poland. The electrolytic zinc plant started up…
Optical Absorption and Fluorescence Spectra of Single‐Crystal TbF3
Absorption and fluorescence measurements on a single crystal of TbF3 have been used to prepare an energy‐level scheme for the Stark components of the 7F multiplet and the 5D4 level of Tb3+ in this…
