A population's medical need represents its illness burden. Medical demand represents the service level requested for a particular need. Medical care costs are, in large part, a function of need and demand. Our review of health education programs designed to reduce health risks and reduce costs identified thirty-two programs with documented effectiveness,(More)
Central and peripheral cardiovascular adaptations to 12 weeks of intense swim training were characterized in 12 previously sedentary middle-aged men and women. Peak oxygen uptake (VO2) during upright bicycle exercise improved from 29.2 +/- 5.6 to 34.7 +/- 6.7 ml/kg/min (mean +/- SD, p less than .01) because of similar increases in peak cardiac output (CO)(More)
Fractionation of vaginal secretions from sexually human females by partitioning and chromatographic procedures demonstrates the presence of short-chain fatty acids seen as crucial pheromonal components in previous higher primate studies. In addition, the appearance of these short-chain fatty acids suggests a possible correlation of the rise and fall of(More)
This article has traced the evolution of Southern California Edison's San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) from fledgling nuclear facility to one of the largest nuclear power installations in America. Paralleling this growth has been an increasing sophistication and commitment to preserving the public trust through efforts to eliminate substance(More)
One of the most significant lessons learned from this process is that setting objectives with performance standards is the key to continuous quality improvement. The critical differences between health administration and health management are threefold: (1) performance standards are developed with clarity, (2) care delivery is monitored and measured against(More)
Central and peripheral cardiovascular adaptations to 12 weeks of intense swim training were characterized in 12 previously sedentary middle-aged men and women. Peak oxygen uptake (V02) during upright bicycle exercise improved from 29.2 ± 5.6 to 34.7 + 6.7 ml/kg/min (mean + SD, p < .01) because of similar increases in peak cardiac output (CO) and calculated(More)
