County Hospital Simulation Project

The paper offers a simulation model describing the X-ray departments operations in the county hospital. It can be used for testing various process scenarios, for allocation of resources and also conduct activity based cost analysis. The simulation model is used for demonstrating a new operational method that makes the operations at the X-ray department more effective. The operational method is referred to as Triage team method. This method has been it is been studied from two view points. The results showed that the method enhances the X-ray department if properly implemented and it incorporates all the required tasks.

County hospital simulation project
The department of x-ray in the county hospital is facing a challenge in the x-ray department. With the increased amount of patients visiting the x-ray department, the challenge to the health care managers is becoming serious. The process undergone and the resources need to be reconsidered to make the operations more efficient. This will also maintain the quality of care. The objective of the department is to ensure that the patients take minimal time in the process. The resources also need to be allocated in the most effective way and by use of more advanced technology.

Since X-ray department and the processes therewith are somewhat complicated, and have dynamic variables and has random features, definitely there is a need for a method that is effective. The county hospital administration requires a tool that allows them to study the x-ray department operations keenly. This tool will also act as a support tool for decision making. Simulation has been confirmed to be a flexible and an excellent tool for modeling in such kind of environments. Literature has shown various studies in which simulation has been used for modeling of the x-ray department…...

...actual execution of the code. The typical example of relative reference is : addresses of the symbols defined in the Label field, addresses of the data which is defined by the assembler directive, literals, redefinable symbols. Similarly, the typical example of absolute address is the constants which are generated by assembler are absolute. The assembler calculates which addresses are absolute and which addresses are relative during the assembly process. During the assembly process the assembler calculates the address with the help of simple expressions. For example LOADA(X)+5 The expression A(X) means the address of variable X. The meaning of the above instruction is that loading of the contents of memory location which is 5 more than the address of variable X. Suppose if the address of X is 50 then by above command we try to get the memory location 50+5=55. Therefore as the address of variable X is relative A(X) + 5 is also relative. To calculate the relative addresses the simple expressions are allowed. It is expected that the expression should possess at the most addition and multiplication operations. A simple exercise can be carried out to determine whether the given address is absolute or relative. In the expression if the address is absolute then put 0 over there and if address is relative then put lover there. The expression then gets transformed to sum of O's and l's. If the resultant value of the expression is 0 then expression is absolute. And if the resultant......

X-Ray Tube Function

...Since an x-ray tube requires a direct current, some sort of means is required to change from AC to DC. With this x-ray tube it uses a single phase unrectified power source. Rectification is essential for safe and efficient operation of an x-ray tube. Since it is a single phase it will end up having a pulsating x-ray beam. This is caused by the alternating swing in voltage from 0 to 120 times each second under full wave rectification. A disadvantage of a single phase power source is that the x-rays created from single-phase voltage have a value close to zero and are of little diagnostic value due to their low penetrability. * single-phase generators produce voltage that varies from 0 to its maximum value With a metal enclosure the tube is able to maintain its constant electric potential between the electrons of the tube current and the enclosure. Some of the benefits of a metal tube are that it will have a longer life and is less likely to fail. With a metal enclosure you eliminate the problem of tungsten vaporization through grounding of the metal enclosure. The rotating anode which is usually made of molybdenum due to its poor thermal conduction allows the electron beam to interact with a larger target area; therefore, the heating of the anode is not confined to a small spot like with stationary anodes. The heat capacity can be improved by increasing the speed the anode is rotating at. A rotating anode is used in units that produce high-intensity beams and......

...Capitolul 1: Tehnologia Blu-ray Apariţia CD-ului la începutul anilor '80, a însemnat un salt enorm pentru mijloacele mass-media tradiționale. Pe lângă îmbunătățirea semnificativă a calității audio, CD-ul oferea şi o capacitate de stocare de 650 MB, ceea ce presupunea o evoluţie semnificativă pentru mediile de stocare a datelor. Pentru prima dată, a existat un standard universal pentru mijloacele mass-media inscripționabile și reinscripționabile, ce oferea o calitate mai bună şi caracteristici pe care consumatorii şi le doreau, la costuri foarte mici. Deși CD-ul a fost un mediu foarte util pentru înregistrarea și distribuirea de materiale audio și câteva aplicaţii de date, în anii '90 cererea pentru un mediu nou, care să ofere o capacitate mai mare de stocare a crescut. Aceste cerințe au dus la apariţia DVD-ului și implicit la o creştere a capacității de stocare de până la 5-10 ori mai mare. Iniţial produs pentru a stoca filme, acest suport putea fi folosit pentru orice fel de date, inclusiv producţii multimedia interactive. Având această capacitate de stocare DVD-ul era un mediu versatil, el putând stoca cu uşurinţă materiale video (filme întregi), audio, imagini, texte, grafică, într-un cuvânt un mediu ideal pentru era multimedia. Acum, în mileniul următor, standardele video de înaltă definiție (HD = high definition) necesită o nouă soluție. Istoria a demonstrat că o creștere semnificativă de până la 5-10 ori a capacităţii de stocare și de redare a formatelor de......

The X-Ray Tube

...Michel Foucault, the French postmodernist, has been hugely influential in shaping understandings of power, leading away from the analysis of actors who use power as an instrument of coercion, and even away from the discreet structures in which those actors operate, toward the idea that ‘power is everywhere’, diffused and embodied in discourse, knowledge and ‘regimes of truth’ (Foucault 1991; Rabinow 1991). Power for Foucault is what makes us what we are, operating on a quite different level from other theories: ‘His work marks a radical departure from previous modes of conceiving power and cannot be easily integrated with previous ideas, as power is diffuse rather than concentrated, embodied and enacted rather than possessed, discursive rather than purely coercive, and constitutes agents rather than being deployed by them’ (Gaventa 2003: 1) Foucault challenges the idea that power is wielded by people or groups by way of ‘episodic’ or ‘sovereign’ acts of domination or coercion, seeing it instead as dispersed and pervasive. ‘Power is everywhere’ and ‘comes from everywhere’ so in this sense is neither an agency nor a structure (Foucault 1998: 63). Instead it is a kind of ‘metapower’ or ‘regime of truth’ that pervades society, and which is in constant flux and negotiation. Foucault uses the term ‘power/knowledge’ to signify that power is constituted through accepted forms of knowledge, scientific understanding and ‘truth’: ‘Truth is a thing of this world: it is produced only......

Ray Charles

...Roderick M. Thomas Jr. American Popular Music October 25, 2013 Personal Selection Paper I decided to do my paper on Ray Charles because he is a staple in music history. He was always a very influential person in music and revolutionized music by mixing the sound of gospel with blues. Personally, my favorite song to listen to preformed by Ray Charles is “Hit the Road Jack”, which is a part of the blues genre written by Percy Mayfield. The reason I enjoy this song is because it explains a story of a woman who is fed up with a good-for-nothing man who tries to get her back but she does not fall for his deception. I enjoy songs that explain a situation that is going on or a song that is telling a story. You can really get into it with the song when you listen because you get wrapped up in what is happening. Ray Charles Robinson was born September 23, 1930 in Albany, Georgia. He was born to the parents of Aretha (Williams) Robinson, a sharecropper, and Bailey Robinson who was a railroad repairman, a handyman and mechanic. When he was still a baby, his family moved to a poor black community on the west side of Greenville, Florida. He became interested in music at young age when he was at Mr. Wiley Pit’s Red Wing Café. He would watch Pit play the piano while he was the café. Mr. Pit would often watch Ray and Ray’s little brother, George. Ray started to lose his sight at the age of five and became completely blind by the age of seven from glaucoma. From then he began......

Do X-Rays Requested by Triage Nurses Decrease Waiting Times?

...Do X-rays Requested By Triage Nurses Decrease Waiting Times? Research in Health and Social Care Introduction: Since 1991 when the patient’s charter (Department of Health 1991) was introduced, Accident and Emergency (A&E) departments have been under pressure to see, treat and discharge patients within a certain time period. In 1991 75% of walking wounded who presented to the department had to be discharged within one hour. It was subsequently changed in 2004 when the government decided that 98% of all patients attending an A&E department should be in the department no longer than four hours (Department of Health 2004). And again in 2011 when the department of health introduced the clinical care indicators that relaxed the target to 95% seen, treated and discharged or admitted in 4 hours (Department of Health 2011). Triage nurses within the accident and emergency department are one of the first people to assess the patients who present with an injury or illness. The patient’s condition is assessed and their need for how quickly they require treatment is prioritised. Triage nurses are usually experienced A&E nurses who have many years A&E experience (Dolan et al 2007). Patients are then placed in queues to await assessment by a Doctor or Emergency Nurse Practitioner. Once seen they are then put in another queue to await x-ray if necessary before waiting again to see the doctor/ENP that will interpret their x-ray and decided on the best course of......

Ray Charles

...Introduction Ray Charles is considered a musical genius in many different fields. He has a large success in pop, jazz, blues, country, and R&B. Charles is also known as an inventor of soul music. Background In the first golden age of rock and roll they only called one man The Genius, and that was none other than Ray Charles. Born in Albany, Georgia, throughout the depression, and blind by the age of seven, Ray Charles Robinson absolutely had the deck stacked against him from the earliest starting point. “Lots of folks shifted musical styles when their sales figures or their muses indicated it, but Brother Ray alone knew how to cross so many musical boundaries at once. Not even Elvis Presley at his peak could claim such a seamless blend of pop, country, gospel, and blues” (Robert Fontenot). Discussion Biography Ray Charles Robinson was conceived in Albany, Georgia, on September 23, 1930, Charles was brought up in Greenville, Florida, where he made the knowledge of a piano-playing neighbours. As a youngster, Charles apprenticed with him at his little store-cum-jukejoint while processing blues, boogie-woogie and big band swing records on his jukebox. At age six, he was affected by glaucoma, which inevitably left him blind by age of 7. Charles examined structure and beat a mixed bag of instruments, piano and saxophone primary around them, throughout nine years used at the St. Augustine School for the Deaf and the Blind. When he was 15 his mother passed away and he...

Ray Bradbury

...RAY DOUGLAS BRADBURY He was an American novelist, short-story writer, essayist, playwright, screenwriter, and poet. Although the genre of many of Ray Bradbury’s stories is fiction, he rejected being categorized as a science fiction author, claiming that the only story he has ever written that is a science fiction story is Fahrenheit 451. BIOGRAPHY Ray Douglas Bradbury was born on August 22, 1920, in Waukegan, Illinois. He enjoyed a relatively idyllic childhood in Waukegan, which he later incorporated into several semi-autobiographical novels and short stories. Bradbury's life revolved around magic, magicians, circuses, and other such fantasies. He decided to become a writer at about age 12 or 13. He later said that he made this decision to "live forever" through his fiction. His first official pay as a writer came for contributing a joke to George Burns's Burns & Allen Show. In 1937, he became a member of the Los Angeles Science Fiction League, whose help enabled him to publish four issues of his own science-fiction fan magazine, or "fanzine," Futuria Fantasia.  He graduated from a Los Angeles high school in 1938. His formal education ended there because they had no money to send him to college due to the Depression. However, he became a "student of life," selling newspapers on L.A. street corners from 1938 to 1942. He published his first short story in a fan magazine in 1938. Bradbury says that he learned to write by recalling his own experiences.......

Ray Charles

...Ray Charles Is it justifiable or not for him to take gospel music and turn the song into secular songs? Explain whether it was right or wrong. What motivated Ray Charles to experiment with so many genres of music? Was Ray Charles responsible for Margie Hendrix’s early death? Why/Why not? Use one word to describe Ray Charles and explain why. It was justifiable for Ray Charles to take gospel music and turn the song into secular because a new generation was arising. In a community where different genres of music are seen as competition in the music industry, Ray wanted to stand out. The best way to achieve this he had to cause controversy. By remixing and old time favourite gospel track, he gained popularity both negative and positive. This is not doing anything wrong but a making a smart business move. But doing this, he attracted new people to discover the classics such and the young people. They did not live in an all-around religious community but lived in a community where many secular activities occurred and sometimes even worse. To make it in the industry he wanted to relate to the community. I feel like he accomplished this to the best of his ability and this paved the way for many artists to do this action in today’s era. There are many influences that motivated Ray to experience to different type of music genres. Ray’s obsession with Nat King Cole pushed him to mimic his style in the beginning of his career. Due to his wife not liking they route he was......

Blu Ray

...References: (Nystedt 2008) Storage When it comes to storage, blu-ray disc has definitely been a leap forward in terms of how much data we can hold on a single disc. When the DVD disc was still popular it was only able to hold up to five gigabytes of storage. Now, you may think that is quite a bit, but remember you have to store audio, video, and miscellaneous information on a single disc. The resulting limitations of the DVD disc became apparent as we moved forward in technology advancements with audio and video. When the blu-ray disc was becoming popular it started out with a single layer which was capable of over 25 gigabytes of data storage. The technology world was flung open to new opportunities in greater audio performance as well as what is now trending as 4K television. Video The video industry was stymied by the low-end data storage of the DVD Disc. They needed something to be able to cram more data that was more advanced and high end to the consumer. What better place to start with the blu-ray disc when Sony and Pioneer unveil the new format at Japan’s Ceatec show in 2000. They had also announced the Ultra Density Optical, a blue-laser optical disc format proposed to replace the magneto-optical discs. Amazing how a large multi-commercial product corporation mostly known for video development had come up with the idea. Video playback was able to move forward to what we know as high definition at 1080p resolution. Great looking picture......

The Manta Ray

...The Manta Ray In February, 2009, I had the pleasure of meeting one of the largest and most beautiful creatures on the planet and in the sea, the pelagic Manta Ray. Her name is Nandi, and she is located at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, Georgia. Nandi was rescued from shark nets off the coast of South Africa, and was rehabilitated. I had always loved rays, big and small, but the Manta Ray sparked my interest even further. Manta Rays, or Manta birostris, are one of the largest but least-known elasmobranches, which are a subclass of cartilaginous fishes encompassing sharks and rays. They are also called Atlantic Manta, Australian Devilray, Devilfish, Pacific Manta, and many others. Like other members of the shark and ray family, their skeleton is made entirely of cartilage. They are also of close relation to the Stingray, but do not have a stinger. They can be recognized by their large triangular pectoral fins and projecting cephalic fins, forward extensions of the pectoral fins that project on either side of the head, as shown below: [pic] Adult Mantas can reach a maximum width of 22 feet, and weigh up to 3,000 pounds. The colorization of the Manta is unique to each animal, ranging from dark brown, grayish blue, or black on top and white underneath. Manta Rays are very rarely kept in captivity due to their size. Only five aquariums in the world have Mantas on display, including the Georgia Aquarium, which is the home of my new friend Nandi. ......

X-Rays Definition

...An X-ray is a form of high-energy electromagnetic radiation. (Basic Principle) Other types of electromagnetic radiation that make up the electromagnetic spectrum are microwaves, infrared light, visible light, ultraviolet light, and gamme rays. They all travel in waves, but possess different wavelengths. X-rays are shorter in wavelength compared to ultraviolet rays, but longer wavelengths when compared to gamma rays. (Comparison and Contrast) X rays are produced inside a vacuum tube called a Coolidge tube by the use of the principal cathode ray tube or an x-ray tube. (Location) In the case of the x-ray tube, the cathode and the anode have a voltage of 20-100 kV. The anode is typically made out of a substance called tungsten. Electrons emerging from the cathode hit the tungsten, loses energy from ionization and radiative collision, and results in x-rays and Brehmsstrahlung (white light photon). (Analysis) To be classified as x-rays, the frequency must range from 3x10^16 through 3x10^19 Hz. (Physical Description) The word X-ray, known as Roentgen rays in German-speaking countries, was named after its discoverer Wilhelm Conrad Rontgen. It was aptly named “X-rays,” with the “x” being a mathematical symbol for something unknown. He accidentally discovered it while experimenting with vacuum tubes in 1895. (Word Derivation) Strong, deeply penetrating, and highly destructive rays with short wavelengths are called hard X-rays. Those with longer wavelength and less......

...X-Radiation Project Abstract This project will look at the history of X-radiation in its notable historical forms and trace the use of the technology all the way to contemporary forms of X-Radiation, including computed tomography. The origins of the two technologies will be traced as well as the improvements that have been made to them over the past number of decades. The importance of the technology will be assessed in terms of its efficiency and usefulness in the context of modern medicine. The finding is that CT, CAT, and X-ray allow for great convenience, lower cost, and higher quality imaging than is possible without these technologies. Background & State of the Art The story of X-rays begins in the late Nineteenth Century when a German professor named Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen introduced the discovery that a cathode ray tube could create a fluorescent glow of crystals that were placed on a surface near the tube (NA, 2014). After giving the cathode ray tube a higher voltage and removing all air from the inside of the tube, the professor found that the tube gave nearby objects a fluorescent glow of light. The upshot for the professor from this improvised experiment was that the tube must be giving off a new kind of ray that scientists were not yet familiar with. The most significant part of Roentgen’s discovery, for modern medical purposes, at least, was that the new......
