Nasopharyngeal Obstruction: A Rare Post Laser Assisted Tonsillectomy Complication  [PDF]
K. P. Morwani, Amol Patil, Gaurav Ahluwalia
International Journal of Otolaryngology and Head & Neck Surgery (IJOHNS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ijohns.2016.52014
Abstract: Tonsillectomy once was a most common ENT procedure, being referred in past as the “bread and butter of otorhinolaryngologists” though not so commonly performed these days. The usual complications of this procedure have been haemorrhage-primary/reactionary/secondary, infection, tonsillar bed structures injury, and even death. With the advent of newer technologies like lasers, microdebriders, coblators, harmonic scalpel, radiofrequency, newer complications also arise. This case report focuses on one such complication of laser assisted tonsillectomy, not much spoken of in books.

Phase Separation in a Simple Model with Dynamical Asymmetry
Rajeev Ahluwalia
Physics , 1998, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevE.59.263
Abstract: We perform computer simulations of a Cahn-Hilliard model of phase separation which has dynamical asymmetry between the two coexisting phases. The dynamical asymmetry is incorporated by considering a mobility function which is order parameter dependent. Simulations of this model reveal morphological features similar to those observed in viscoelastic phase separation. In the early stages, the minority phase domains form a percolating structure which shrinks with time eventually leading to the formation of disconnected domains. The domains grow as L(t) ~ t^{1/3} in the very late stages. Although dynamical scaling is violated in the area shrinking regime, it is restored at late times. However, the form of the scaling function is found to depend on the extent of dynamical asymmetry.
Fault Characterization Based on Synchrophasor Data Using Heuristic Approach  [PDF]
Gaurav S. Chingale
Smart Grid and Renewable Energy (SGRE) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/sgre.2014.512028
Abstract: With the advent of phasor measurement unit (PMU) technology, the grid observability has got a new dimension. This facet of technology helps in getting the real-time and dynamic scenario of the grid operations which was a remote possibility some decades before. Achieving this level of observability puts us at an advantage of responding to the system faults with reduced response time, and helps in restoring the grid stability within fraction of second. This paper demonstrates the detailed fault characterization from the PMU inputs, after illustrations from various real-time examples and different faults occurred in India. This paper tries to shed some light on areas where the accurate fault characterization can help the operator in taking the right decision for reliable grid operations.
Development of Application Specific Continuous Speech Recognition System in Hindi  [PDF]
Gaurav Gaurav, Devanesamoni Shakina Deiv, Gopal Krishna Sharma, Mahua Bhattacharya
Journal of Signal and Information Processing (JSIP) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jsip.2012.33052
Abstract: Application specific voice interfaces in local languages will go a long way in reaching the benefits of technology to rural India. A continuous speech recognition system in Hindi tailored to aid teaching Geometry in Primary schools is the goal of the work. This paper presents the preliminary work done towards that end. We have used the Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficients as speech feature parameters and Hidden Markov Modeling to model the acoustic features. Hidden Markov Modeling Tool Kit —3.4 was used both for feature extraction and model generation. The Julius recognizer which is language independent was used for decoding. A speaker independent system is implemented and results are presented.
The Development of Services in Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Environment from ‘Technology’ Perspective  [PDF]
Gaurav K. Agrawal, Daniel Berg
Journal of Service Science and Management (JSSM) , 2009, DOI: 10.4236/jssm.2009.24052
Abstract: The service sector is receiving much deserved attention resulting from its inevitable role in a country’s economic de-velopment. Despite all the efforts gaps such as the relationship between technological advances and service development are yet to be revealed from the perspective of new applications that organizations want to develop and implement. This paper explores opportunities using a comprehensive model (and CRM, as an example) that can be used to extend the research relating service development to the technology development aspects of the market.
Stage III and IV Head and Neck Cancer: Does Everyone Need Chemotherapy?  [PDF]
Gaurav Marwaha, William L. Barrett
International Journal of Otolaryngology and Head & Neck Surgery (IJOHNS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ijohns.2014.31006

Objectives: Definitive treatment of Stage III and IV squamous cell carcinoma can be with surgical resection, definitive radiation therapy alone or combined radiation therapy with chemotherapy. Radiation and concomitant platinum-based chemotherapy are the accepted gold standard. The purpose of this study was to determine how often patients treated with radiation therapy alone developed locoregionally recurrent disease that in retrospect possibly could have been prevented with the addition of chemotherapy. Methods: 116 consecutive patients with known Stage III and Stage IV head and neck cancers were treated with curative intent with radiation therapy alone. Results of the treatment were retrospectively reviewed. Results: Of the 116 patients treated with radiation alone, 11 (9.48%) died from locally recurrent disease, 6 (5.17%) died from local disease and were never disease-free, 7 (6.03%) died from metastatic disease, 9 (7.75%) died from disease NOS, 6 (5.17%) died from secondary malignancy, 10 (8.62%) died from ICD (2 oropharynx; 8 larynx), 6 (5.17%) died from uncertain causes, 51 (43.96%) are alive and disease-free, and 10 (8.62%) patients’ final outcome data were not recoverable. Conclusions: Cure rates in selected patients with advanced head and neck cancer may be similar with radiation alone compared to radiation with the addition of chemotherapy.

A qualitative study of the impact of the implementation of advanced access in primary healthcare on the working lives of general practice staff
Sanjiv Ahluwalia, Maxine Offredy
BMC Family Practice , 2005, DOI: 10.1186/1471-2296-6-39
Abstract: A qualitative study design, using semi-structured interviews, was conducted with 18 general practice staff: 6 GPs, 6 practice managers and 6 receptionists. Two neighbouring boroughs in southeast England were used as the study sites. NUD*IST computer software assisted in data management to identify concepts, categories and themes of the data. A framework approach was used to analyse the data.Whilst practice managers and receptionists saw advanced access as having a positive effect on their working lives, the responses of general practitioners (GPs) were more ambivalent. Receptionists reported improvements in their working lives with a change in their role from gatekeepers for appointments to providing access to appointments, fewer confrontations with patients, and greater job satisfaction. Practice managers perceived reductions in work stress from fewer patient complaints, better use of time, and greater flexibility for contingency planning. GPs recognised benefits in terms of improved consultations, but had concerns about the impact on workload and continuity of care.AA has improved working conditions for receptionists, converting their perceived role from gatekeeper to access facilitator, and for practice managers as patients were more satisfied. GP responses were more ambivalent, as they experienced both positive and negative effects.Patients' access to general practitioner (GP) appointments has been a key concern of the current British Labour government. Two national surveys [1,2] published in 1998 and 2000 highlighted the difficulty in accessing GPs, citing inconvenient surgery hours and long waiting. The government's response to this was to promise that "by the year 2004, patients will be able to see a primary care professional within 24 hours and a GP within 48 hours" [2]. Managing patients' requests for appointment has become increasingly important in general practice, as it is a national and local imperative, and features in the new GP contract in the United
