Successful Conservative Management of Trimethoprim Induced Life-Threatening Hyperkalaemia in a Patient with Pneumocystis jirovecii Pneumonia  [PDF]
Jamie Johnstone, Andrew Macduff
Case Reports in Clinical Medicine (CRCM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/crcm.2014.38103
Abstract:

Co-trimoxazole is a combination antibiotic made up of trimethoprim and sulphamethoxazole that is first line treatment for Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia (PJP). Hyperkalaemia is a relatively common side effect of the trimethoprim component of co-trimoxazole but it is not well recognised by clinicians. The mechanism of action causing hyperkalaemia due to trimethoprim is similar to the potassium sparing diuretic effect of amiloride. It has been suggested on this basis that the hyperkalaemia can be reversed by the administration of furosemide and 0.9% saline to promote kaliuresis. We present what we believe to be the first published case of successfully managing trimethoprim induced hyperkalaemia with furosemide and 0.9% saline allowing the continued use of co-trimoxazole to treat severe PJP.

Applying Quantification of Qualitative Verbal Data to Asynchronous Written Discourse  [PDF]
Jamie Costley, Seung Lock Han
Creative Education (CE) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2013.412A1001
Abstract: As more and more universities start to implement online components, the need to build online learning communities grows. An important and widely used type of online community is the internet forum. Internet forums operate asynchronously and each member can create threads and reply to others threads. Examination of each member’s writings can give valuable insight into the online community and the learning that is taking place within. This paper systematizes a method for researchers to investigate discussions on online forums. More specifically this paper lays out an 8-step process that a researcher may follow when investigating discussions on online forums.
The trypanosomatid evolution workshop London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
Stevens, Jamie;
Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz , 2000, DOI: 10.1590/S0074-02762000000400011
Abstract: the trypanosome evolution workshop, a joint meeting of the university of exeter and the london school of hygiene and tropical medicine, focused on topics relating to trypanosomatid and vector evolution. the meeting, sponsored by the wellcome trust, the special programme for research and training in tropical disease of world health organization and the british section of the society of protozoologists, brought together an international group of experts who presented papers on a wide range of topics including parasite and vector phylogenies, molecular methodology and relevant biogeographical data.
Are Big Schools Bad Schools?: Measuring the Effects of the Number and Size of Schools on District Costs and Student Achievement
Jamie Steiner
JPUR : Journal of Purdue Undergraduate Research , 2011,
Abstract: As state governments shrink their budgets, more school districts are debating consolidation. In considering school consolidation, governments must evaluate costs per pupil and student achievement. Factors associated with costs per pupil include schools per district, district enrollment, income per individual, percent of pupils eligible for free lunch, pupil-teacher ratio, and average teacher salary. Factors associated with achievement include school enrollment, percent of pupils eligible for free lunch, suspension/expulsion rates, pupil-teacher ratio, and average teacher salary. This paper presents a regression model that analyzes the effects of school enrollment and schools per district on costs per pupil and standardized test passing rates in Indiana elementary and secondary schools. This model employed data from the Indiana Department of Education and the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. The results showed that districts with more schools had higher costs per pupil and that a school’s enrollment had no significant effect on student achievement. In addition, the results suggest that school consolidation could cut costs while not necessarily lowering student achievement levels.
National Climate Change Policies and Sustainable Water Management: Conflicts and Synergies
Jamie Pittock
Ecology and Society , 2011,
Abstract: Even in the absence of climate change, freshwater ecosystems and the resources they provide for people are under great pressure because of increasing demand for water and declines in water quality. The imminent onset of climate change will exacerbate these impacts, placing even greater pressure on already stressed resources and regions. A plethora of national climate change policies have been adopted that emphasize structural adjustment in the energy sector and increasing carbon sinks. To date, most public debate on water has focused on the direct impacts of climate change on hydrology. However, there is growing evidence that climate change policies themselves may have substantial additional and negative impacts on freshwater resources and ecosystems and may thus result in maladaptation. To avoid such maladaptation, integrated, coordinated policy making is required. In this paper, national climate change policies from Australia, Brazil, China, the European Union (EU), India, Mexico, South Africa, Tanzania, and the United Kingdom are compared to: (i) identify where negative trade-offs exist between climate change policies and freshwater resources, (ii) analyze where institutions and structures exist to optimize integration among climate, water, and biodiversity policies, and (iii) provide a much needed overview from a broad selection of countries with a view to identifying further opportunities for theoretical exploration and testing. The synergies and conflicts among climate, energy, water, and environmental policies create additional challenges for governments to develop integrated policies to deliver multiple benefits. Success factors for better policy development identified in this assessment and synthesis include engagement of senior political leaders, cyclical policy development, multi-agency and stakeholder processes, and stronger accountability and enforcement measures.
