A method was further developed to screen non-tissue-culture-adapted bovine rotaviruses for serotype, using a neutralization test with infectious fecal rotavirus. One of those rotaviruses (B223) which was not blocked by antiserum to the neonatal calf diarrhea virus (NCDV) serotype was then adapted to cell culture in the presence of the antiserum for two or(More)
The serotype, RNA electropherotype, and cross-protection properties of rotaviruses isolated from canine, simian, porcine, and human species were compared. The bovine strain B:USA:78:1A and the canine strain C:USA:81:2 were adapted to cell culture and cloned in this study. The other viruses, i.e., simian strain S:USA:79:2, porcine Ohio State University(More)
The American Association of Critical-Care Nurses developed a Demonstration Project to document fiscal costs and patient care effectiveness of critical care nursing in a unit characterized by valued organizational attributes. Data were collected by interview, observation, and written surveys from 42 nurses, 68 physicians, and 192 patient admissions.(More)
Although more patients are surviving illness that requires critical care, little is known about the impact of the critical care experience on patients as they recall it. In this study we describe 59 patients' recollections of the critical care experience within 24 to 48 hours after transfer from the unit. Responding to an open-ended series of questions,(More)
Strawberry fruit, western flower thrips and two-spotted spider mites were exposed to a range of ethyl formate (EF) concentrations from 0.8 to 2.4%. Ethyl formate treatments included both single and multiple applications of EF, the multiple applications having a venting period between each application. Additionally, target pests were exposed to EF and(More)
The results of the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses Demonstration Project support the contention that high quality critical care nursing can be provided to patients at a reasonable cost. In addition, the data refute the notion that elements influenced by nurses--supplies and nursing care--are the most costly portion of the total hospital charge.
