In the fall of 1994, we reorganized the content of our three-course computer science introductory sequence in order to introduce software engineering concepts early and provide a consistent software engineering focus from one course to the next. We also established documentation and design standards that would serve as a framework for teaching the software(More)
This paper discusses various strategies for introducing and reinforcing software engineering principles in the undergraduate Computer Science curriculum. These strategies are based on a set of standards for internal/external documentation and organization of software which may be implemented quickly and inexpensively without a complete overhaul of courses.(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate risk factors, placental and pathologic determinants of stillbirths. METHODS A retrospective analysis of stillbirths > or = 25 weeks was performed. Clinical data was compared to a randomized control group. Statistical analysis included chi square test, student t test, and logistic regression. RESULTS One hundred and fifteen(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the correlation between placental histopathology findings and perinatal outcome in preterm infants. METHODS Placental histopathology in 774 neonates delivered at 24-32 weeks between 1992 and 2000 was classified as follows: 254 (33%) had histological chorioamnionitis, 263 (34%) had coagulation-related lesions, 228 (30%) had(More)
This paper focuses on documentation standards and their employment throughout the undergraduate computer science curriculum. Specifically, it presents the motivation for a set of well-defined documentation standards for programming-intensive computer science courses. Additionally, it discusses the establishment of standards addressing both the procedure-(More)
The first case of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) in pregnancy is reported. The patient, a drug addict, presented with lymphadenopathy, pulmonary infiltrates, and skin lesions of Kaposi's sarcoma, a tumor rarely found in young women in this country. The helper T-lymphocyte to suppressor T-lymphocyte ratio showed the profound inversion(More)
Mitochondrial myopathy is characterized by weakness, exercise intolerance, and acidosis. Pregnancy has been reported to accelerate the disease process. This report discusses pregnancy and management of labor complicated by mitochondrial myopathy and the therapeutic dilemmas that arise when preeclampsia is diagnosed.
External cephalic version has been used periodically for centuries to manage breech presentations. As cesarean section rates have escalated in the last two decades, ways to curb this rise have been evaluated. By reducing the number of infants that arrive in labor in a malpresentation, it is possible to impact the overall cesarean section rate. External(More)
