Jijun Zhang, Jiawei Li, Guoguo Tan, Renchao Hu, Junqiang Wang, Chuntao Chang, Xinmin Wang
Thin and flexible materials that can provide efficient electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding are urgently needed, especially if they can be easily processed and withstand harsh environments. Herein, layer structured Fe-Si-B/Ni-Cu-P metallic glass composites have been developed by simple electroless plating Ni-Cu-P coating on commercial Fe-Si-B metallic glasses. The 0.1-millimeter-thick composite shows EMI shielding effectiveness of 40 dB over the X-band frequency range, which is higher than those of traditional metals, metal oxides and their polymer composites of larger thickness...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: Analyses of 72-hour emergency department (ED) return visits are frequently used for quality assurance purposes and have been proposed as a means of measuring provider performance. These analyses have traditionally examined only patients returning to the same hospital as the initial visit. We use a health information exchange network to describe differences between ED visits resulting in 72-hour revisits to the same hospital and those resulting in revisits to a different site...

Qing Liu, Ya-Ling He, Qing Li
In this paper, an enthalpy-based multiple-relaxation-time (MRT) lattice Boltzmann (LB) method is developed for solid-liquid phase-change heat transfer in metal foams under the local thermal nonequilibrium (LTNE) condition. The enthalpy-based MRT-LB method consists of three different MRT-LB models: one for flow field based on the generalized non-Darcy model, and the other two for phase-change material (PCM) and metal-foam temperature fields described by the LTNE model. The moving solid-liquid phase interface is implicitly tracked through the liquid fraction, which is simultaneously obtained when the energy equations of PCM and metal foam are solved...

BACKGROUND: Early unplanned readmissions of "bouncebacks" to intensive care units are a healthcare quality metric and result in higher mortality and greater cost. Few studies have examined bouncebacks to the neurointensive care unit (neuro-ICU), and we sought to design and implement a quality improvement pilot to reduce that rate. METHODS: First, we performed a retrospective chart review of 504 transfers to identify potential bounceback risk factors. Risk factors were assessed on the day of transfer by the transferring physician identifying patients as "high risk" or "low risk" for bounceback...

PURPOSE: This paper investigates patient outcomes including length of stay (LOS), cost of hospitalization, bounce-back rates, transition to hospice care, and mortality, following back-transfer. METHODS: This study was an observational case-control study of adults hospitalized in Iowa between 2005 and 2013 to identify back-transferred patients. Back-transfer was defined as the transfer of rural patients near the end of their acute hospitalization in a comprehensive medical center back to a local community hospital for the completion of their medical care...

Molecular dynamics simulations of impinging nanodroplets were performed to study the bounce-back condition for flat and nanopillared surfaces. We found that the bounce-back condition can be closely related to the degree of droplet deformation upon collision with the solid surface. When the droplets have little or small deformation, the bounce-back condition solely depends on the hydrophobicity of the surface. On the other hand, when the droplet deformation is large, the impinging velocity dependence of the bounce-back condition becomes stronger due to the increase of the liquid-vapor interfacial area of colliding droplet, which is proportional to the liquid-vapor surface energy...

Epidemic propagation on complex networks has been widely investigated, mostly with invariant parameters. However, the process of epidemic propagation is not always constant. Epidemics can be affected by various perturbations and may bounce back to its original state, which is considered resilient. Here, we study the resilience of epidemics on networks, by introducing a different infection rate λ2 during SIS (susceptible-infected-susceptible) epidemic propagation to model perturbations (control state), whereas the infection rate is λ1 in the rest of time...

Haley Murphy, Jason Pudlo
Community-based organizations, such as nonprofit organizations (NPOs) and churches, play an important role in helping individuals and communities bounce back after a disaster. The nature of disasters requires organizations across sectors to partner together to provide recovery services; however, collaboration is difficult even in times of stability and requires trust and communication to be built through prior collaborative relationships. These prior relationships rarely exist between the majority of the nonprofit sector, churches, and existing emergency management structures...

AIM: To examine the relative effects of interpersonal conflict and workload on job outcomes (turnover intentions, burnout, injuries) and examine if resilience moderates the indirect effects of conflict and workload on job outcomes via job-related negative effect. BACKGROUND: There is interest in understanding resilience in the nursing profession. Placing resilience in the context of the Emotion-Centred Model of Occupational Stress (Spector, ) is a novel approach to understanding how resilience ameliorates the negative effects of workplace stressors...

BACKGROUND: There is an increased focus on whether mass drug administration (MDA) programmes alone can interrupt the transmission of soil-transmitted helminths (STH). Mathematical models can be used to model these interventions and are increasingly being implemented to inform investigators about expected trial outcome and the choice of optimum study design. One key factor is the choice of threshold for detecting elimination. However, there are currently no thresholds defined for STH regarding breaking transmission...

BACKGROUND: The experience sampling method (ESM) builds an intensive time series of experiences and contexts in the flow of daily life, typically consisting of around 70 reports, collected at 8-10 random time points per day over a period of up to 10 days. METHODS: With the advent of widespread smartphone use, ESM can be used in routine clinical practice. Multiple examples of ESM data collections across different patient groups and settings are shown and discussed, varying from an ESM evaluation of a 6-week randomized trial of mindfulness, to a twin study on emotion dynamics in daily life...

Recovery from Acute Illness is dependent on severity of illness. We aimed to investigate whether resilience as the 'ability to bounce back' might also affect recovery. We conducted a scoping review to identify gaps in the existing literature. We used emergency care, intensive care, critical care and trauma as surrogates for acute illness. We mapped synonyms for resilience and selected 'resilience' and 'robustness'. The search was limited to adult patients admitted to hospitals. We found strong evidence for psychological sequelae of acute illness but no research focusing specifically on the concepts of resilience or robustness and no interventional studies in the acute hospital setting...

Dynamics of Langmuir solitons in the presence of a background density gradient is investigated numerically, including cases with steep gradients to the extent the solitons can disintegrate. The disintegration threshold is explained by regarding the electric field part of the soliton as a point mass moving along the self-generated potential well corresponding to the density cavity. On the other hand, it is demonstrated that the Langmuir solitons are robust when the density gradient is below the threshold. During the acceleration phase toward low density regions, Langmuir solitons adjust themselves to balance the electric field pressure and the negative plasma pressure by expelling the imbalanced portion as density cavities at the sound velocity...

BACKGROUND: Malaria is spread by mosquitoes that are increasingly recognised to have diverse biting behaviours. How a mosquito in a specific environment responds to differing availability of blood-host species is largely unknown and yet critical to vector control efficacy. A parsimonious mathematical model is proposed that accounts for a diverse range of host-biting behaviours and assesses their impact on combining long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) with a novel approach to malaria control: livestock treated with insecticidal compounds ('endectocides') that kill biting mosquitoes...
