PURPOSE Spinal anesthesia for caesarean delivery is often associated with hypotension. This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of rapid crystalloid (Lactated Ringer's solution; LRS) or colloid (hydroxyethyl starch; HES) cohydration with a second intravenous access line on the incidence of hypotension and ephedrine requirement during spinal(More)
Due to high number of design parameters and complexity of construction, hydroelectric power plant project costs are affected by many parameters. In this paper, 54 feasibility reports of hydroelectric power plant (HEPP) projects are analyzed. A database is constructed that has the project costs, design parameters and project features. The data set is(More)
Increasing competitiveness in engineering industry pressurizes companies to improve productivity of every single element in processes. As a result of this pressure, increasing productivity of design staff and design systems is systematically investigated by industry professionals and researchers. Design reuse appears as an effective approach to increase(More)
