When medical care is initiated at a mass casualty event, the first activity is the triage of victims, which is the grouping by victims severity of injury. Paper triage tags are often used to mark victims' triage status and to record information on injuries and treatments administered in the field. In this paper we describe the design and development of(More)
Plant-associated pseudomonads are commonly exposed to copper bactericides, which are applied to reduce the disease incidence caused by these bacteria. Consequently, many of these bacteria have acquired resistance or tolerance to copper salts. We recently conducted a survey of 37 copper-resistant (Cur) Pseudomonas spp., including P. cepacia, P. fluorescens,(More)
In a mass casualty situation, medical personnel at the disaster site and other field treatment settings may need to monitor the vital signs of hundreds of seriously injured patients with minimal staffing. The conditions may be primitive and personnel may have to improvise infrastructure. As part of our research to enhance medical response to disasters with(More)
Coronafacic acid (CFA), the polyketide component of the phytotoxin coronatine (COR), is activated and coupled to coronamic acid via amide bond formation, a biosynthetic step presumably catalyzed by the CFA ligase (cfl) gene product. The COR biosynthetic gene cluster in Pseudomonas syringae pv. glycinea PG4180 is located within a 32-kb region of a 90-kb(More)
The WiFi Bullhorn is designed to assist emergency workers in the event of a disaster situation by offering a rapidly configurable wireless of public address system for disaster sites.
