Aims and Scope The major goal of the Journal of Computational Methods in Sciences and Engineering (JCMSE) is the publication of new research results on computational methods in sciences and engineering. Common experience had taught us that computational methods originally developed in a given basic science, e.g. physics, can be of paramount importance to(More)
BACKGROUND In the operating room, factors such as interruptions, communication failures, team familiarity and the unpredictability of unplanned cases can prolong the length of an operation, and lead to inefficiency and increased costs. However, little is known about the extent to which such factors contribute to extending the expected length of an(More)
Personal Health Monitoring (PHM) uses electronic devices which monitor and record health-related data outside a hospital, usually within the home. This paper examines the ethical issues raised by PHM. Eight themes describing the ethical implications of PHM are identified through a review of 68 academic articles concerning PHM. The identified themes include(More)
BACKGROUND Failure to convey time-critical information to team members during surgery diminishes members' perception of the dynamic information relevant to their task, and compromises shared situational awareness. This research reports the dialog around clinical decisions made by team members in the time-pressured and high-risk context of surgery, and the(More)
Global cultural homogenisation has significant consequences for our responsibility for others in distant parts of the globe. ICT gives a powerful impetus to this cultural homogenisation. There are a number of distinct elements that contribute to this. SOFTWARE A very large part of the cost of software is the cost of development and testing. The largest(More)
