This paper proposes the integration of The Competing Values Framework (Quinn 1984; 1988) with Nonaka and Takeuchi’s (1995) knowledge creation and conversion model. Conceptual parallels between the two models are identified and the interaction effects among dimensions are analysed. The resulting Organizational Knowledge Management Model should further(More)
A multicentre, randomized, double-blind trial compared the efficacy and safety of and tolerance to natural and synthetically produced prostaglandin E2 tablets in the induction of labour in 202 women. The compounds were similarly effective, inducing labour in approximately 66% of patients. The total dose required and the interval between induction and(More)
The contents of phosphatidylglycerol and phosphatidylcholine phosphorus in amniotic fluid (10,000 X g pellets) were studied as predictors of fetal lung maturity. The presence of phosphatidylglycerol predicted the absence of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome with 99% probability. When phosphatidylglycerol was absent, phosphatidylcholine phosphorus was a(More)
The application of the fetal biophysical profile score in the management of 2,400 high-risk pregnancies was assessed. The negative predictive value for normal perinatal outcome was not improved compared to single variable tests. The positive predictive value for abnormal perinatal outcome was improved. The overall perinatal mortality in 2,485 fetuses was(More)
forty-nine patients with suspected intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) were studied under rigid experimental conditions to determine baseline fetal breathing movement (FBM) activity and the response to 90-minute maternal glucose infusion, as compared to that of normal control subjects. Patients with IUGR showed a normal amount of FBMs during maternal(More)
Antepartum assessment of 5034 high-risk pregnancies to predict perinatal death included five biophysical variables (nonstress test, fetal breathing movements, fetal movements, fetal tone, and amniotic fluid volume) which combined to form a biophysical profile score. We assessed 4148 fetuses within seven days of delivery. The ability of each variable to(More)
Phosphatidylglycerol (PG) was measured in the pellet fraction of 863 amniotic fluid samples, and charts were reviewed for maternal disease, duration of gestation at collection, and outcome of pregnancy. PG was present at 32 to 34 weeks' gestation in 24.1% of samples; at 35 to 36 weeks, in 52.3%; and at 37 weeks, in 85.4%. Pre-eclamptic toxemia/hypertension,(More)
Phosphatidylglycerol and the lecithin/sphingomyelin (L/S) ratio were determined, and the shake test was performed, as indicators of fetal lung maturity, in more than 600 patients. A clinical review of the outcome was made in all patients who underwent delivery within 2 days after collection of amniotic fluid. Correlation was made phosphatidylglycerol, shake(More)
