OBJECTIVE The past 10-15 yrs brought significant changes in the United States healthcare system. Effects on Medicare intensive care unit use and costs are unknown. Intensive care unit costs are estimated using the Russell equation with a ratio of intensive care unit to floor cost per day, or "R value," of 3, which may no longer be valid. We sought to(More)
INTRODUCTION Identifying critically ill patients most likely to benefit from pre-emptive therapies will become increasingly important if therapies are to be used safely and cost-effectively. We sought to determine whether a predictive model could be constructed that would serve as a useful decision support tool for the pre-emptive management of intensive(More)
Let G = (V, E) be a graph with v vertices and e edges. An (a, d)-vertex-antimagic total labeling is a bijection λ from V (G) ∪ E(G) to the set of consecutive integers 1, 2, . . . , v + e, such that the weights of the vertices form an arithmetic progression with the initial term a and common difference d. If λ(V (G)) = {1, 2, . . . , v} then we call the(More)
The aim of this article is to model and analyze an unsteady axisymmetric flow of nonconducting, Newtonian fluid squeezed between two circular plates passing through porous medium channel with slip boundary condition. A single fourth order nonlinear ordinary differential equation is obtained using similarity transformation. The resulting boundary value(More)
