The initial ankle radiographs of 144 patients with ankle injuries were used to predict the total extent of ankle injury. Using the operative, clinical and radiographic findings, each injury was then classified according to the Lauge-Hansen system. Three patterns of lateral mallecolar fracture were unique to specific mechanisms of injury, with transverse(More)
This paper discusses some of the problems encountered in the diagnosis and treatment of 371 ankle fractures treated at the University of Kansas Medical Center over a 14-year period, 1965-1979. Seven of these injuries required major reconstructive procedures after failure of initial treatment and 11 fractures required eventual ankle arthrodesis. The causes(More)
We describe a C++ physics development environment, called the Tecolote Framework, which allows model developers to work more efficiently and accurately. This Framework contains a variety of meshes, operators, and parallel fields, as well as an input/output (VO) subsytem and graphics capabilities. Model developers can inherit Tecolote's generic model(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the relationship in healthy adults and critically ill patients between: patient position, body mass index (BMI), patient body temperature, interface pressure (IP) and tissue reperfusion (TR). Also to determine the relationship in critically ill patients between: Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) score, Braden Scale score for(More)
The European Water Act 91/271/EEC introduced a series of measures for the purpose of protecting the environment from the adverse effects of effluent discharge from Waste Water Treatment Plants (WWTP). There are environmental costs associated with attaining the required level of water quality set out in the act such as, emissions from energy production,(More)
PURPOSE To test an interventional patient skin integrity bundle, the InSPiRE protocol, for reducing pressure injuries in critically ill patients in an Australian adult intensive care unit. METHODS Before and after design: patients receiving the intervention (InSPiRE protocol) were compared with a similar control group who received standard care. Data(More)
