ECG compression and labview implementation  [PDF]
Tatiparti Padma, M. Madhavi Latha, Abrar Ahmed
Journal of Biomedical Science and Engineering (JBiSE) , 2009, DOI: 10.4236/jbise.2009.23030
Abstract: It is often very difficult for the patient to tell the difference between angina symptoms and heart attack symptoms, so it is very important to recognize the signs of heart attack and immedi-ately seek medical attention. A practical case of this type of remote consultation is examined in this paper. To deal with the huge amount of electrocardiogram (ECG) data for analysis, storage and transmission; an efficient ECG compression technique is needed to reduce the amount of data as much as possible while pre-serving the clinical significant signal for cardiac diagnosis. Here the ECG signal is analyzed for various parameters such as heart rate, QRS-width, etc. Then the various parameters and the compressed signal can be transmitted with less channel capacity. Comparison of various ECG compression techniques like TURNING POINT, AZTEC, CORTES, FFT and DCT it was found that DCT is the best suitable compression technique with compression ratio of about 100:1. In addition, different techniques are available for implementation of hardware components for signal pickup the virtual im-plementation with labview is also used for analysis of various cardiac parameters and to identify the abnormalities like Tachycardia, Bradycardia, AV Block, etc. Both hardware and virtual implementation are also detailed in this context.
External Innovation Implementation Determinants and Performance Measurement: A Case Study from the Pharmaceutical Industry  [PDF]
Matthew Coates, Lydia Bals
Technology and Investment (TI) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ti.2013.42016

With an increasing amount of externally sourced innovations, a major success factor for innovation-dependent indus- tries such as the pharmaceutical industry is to successfully implement innovations from outside. Existing frameworks emphasize creating a strong climate for implementation by developing the learning capabilities of the organization, but there is still much to be learned about the process of implementing innovations that have been in-sourced by companies. As a research setting that is particularly innovation-driven and not well-studied yet, this study examines the key deter- minants for innovation implementation based on a case study in the pharmaceutical industry. The results of 25 expert interviews and a survey with 67 respondents led to the resulting framework and a corresponding performance meas- urement system. The results reveal the importance of supporting systems and show differences in perception of early and late Research & Development functions.

The Epistemological Aspects of Curriculum Development and Implementation for the Medical Laboratory Technology Diploma in Uganda  [PDF]
Wilson Rwandembo Mugisha, Christopher B. Mugimu
Creative Education (CE) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2012.33044
Abstract: A study was conducted to investigate the epistemological aspects found in the curriculum, teaching, learning and practice of Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT) in Uganda. The study involved the analysis of the curriculum document for the diploma in MLT implemented at Mulago Paramedical Schools (MPS) in Kampala Uganda. It further involved getting the views of learners, educators and clinical supervisors of the MLT diploma programme. The results of the study revealed that various epistemological aspects were applied during the development and implementation of the MLT curriculum as well as during the practice of MLT in Uganda. Application of these aspects during curriculum development and implementation led to acquisition of various types of knowledge. It further led to the development of different and appropriate ways of knowing that is necessary for the training and practice of MLT.
Understanding and Improving Quality of Care in the Context of Depressed Elderly Persons Living in Norway  [PDF]
Elisabeth Severinsson, Anne Lise Holm
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2014.412086

Effective leadership plays an important role in safe patient care. The aim of this paper was to understand and improve the implementation outcomes identified by empirical studies based on Proctors et al.’s key concepts, acceptability appropriateness, feasibility and fidelity, and to propose recommendations for further research. Methods: An interdisciplinary approach using mixed methods. Results: A total of twenty papers based on data from this interdisciplinary study have been published. Overall, our published empirical studies revealed that the CCM intervention had positive results due to staff members’ engagement to improve care, their awareness of the need for collaboration and willingness to assume responsibility for patient care. From the perspective of the depressed elderly persons the results of the research project indicated their need for support to increase self-management. In conclusion, an improved understanding of the implementation outcomes will have an impact on best practice for depressed elderly persons and dissemination purposes. Quality management and highly action-oriented involvement are necessary in implementation research. These will also affect the professional development of interdisciplinary teams as well as constitute a basis for further research on understanding and improving the care of depressed elderly individuals.

Abstract: This paper presents mathematical models and optimal algorithms of two FIFO-queues control in single-level memory. These models are designed as two-dimensional random walks on the integer lattice in a rectangular area for consecutive implementation and a triangle area for linked list implementation.
Secure Implementation in Queueing Problems  [PDF]
Katsuhiko Nishizaki
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2012.25103

This paper studies secure implementability (T. Saijo, T. Sjostrom and T. Yamato, Secure Implementation,Theoretical Economics, Vol. 2, No. 3, 2007, pp. 203-229) in queueing problems. Our main result shows that the social choice function satisfies strategy-proofness and strong non-bossiness (Z. Ritz, Restricted Domains, Arrow-Social Welfare Functions and Noncorruptible and Non-Manipulable Social Choice Correspondences: The Case of Private Alternatives,Mathematical Social Science, Vol. 4, No. 2, 1983, pp. 155-179), both of which are necessary for secure imple- mentation, if and only if it is constant on the domains that satisfy weak indifference introduced in this paper. Weak in- difference is weaker than minimal richness (Y. Fujinaka and T. Wakayama, Secure Implementation in Economies with Indivisible Objects and Money, Economics Letters, Vol. 100, No. 1, 2008, pp. 91-95). Our main result illustrates that secure implementation is too difficult in queueing problems since many reasonable domains satisfy weak indifference, for example, convex domains.

Call for Implementation: A New Software Development Mode for Leveraging the Resources of Open Community  [PDF]
Weiping Li, Weijie Chu, Ying Liu
Journal of Software Engineering and Applications (JSEA) , 2009, DOI: 10.4236/jsea.2009.21005
Abstract: With the growth of the internet and open software, there are additional software developers available from the open community that can participate in the development of software application systems. Aiming to leverage these resources, a new development model, CFI (call for implementation), is proposed. The basic idea of CFI is to publish some part of a software project to the open community, whole or part, in certain phases of the software development lifecycle to call for implementation. This paper discusses the basic concept and method for a software development process in CFI mode. Two different modes of CFI with different granularities are analyzed. And one of the CFI modes, fine-granularity-CFI mode, is thoroughly discussed including the main methods and basic steps. To verify the ideas a pilot project, an online store system, is built up with the CFI development process. The online store system takes the traditional Model-View-Control architecture and some common technologies such as Struts, Hibernate, Spring are used. The result shows that this new kind of software development mode is feasible though there are many problems that are still requiring further study.
The Education for Sustainability Jig-Saw Puzzle: Implementation in Universities  [PDF]
Ian Thomas, Kathryn Hegarty, Sarah Holdsworth
Creative Education (CE) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2012.326125
Abstract: Why is it taking so long to implement curriculum change for Education for Sustainability (EfS)? Despite a wealth of literature and government reporting about the need for EfS, we have seen few moves to include EfS across the curriculum in universities. Importantly, the sort of curriculum change we are seeking represents a complex process in complex organizations. No single factor affects this type of change. Rather there are several interconnecting aspects of organizations, disciplines, individuals, and beliefs. Hence, in discussing curriculum change we identify the roles of: organizational change; institutional strategies; academic development; curriculum development; learning and teaching practice; pedagogy; the campus; graduate attributes; and professional associations. Overall we do not offer a quick solution, rather we identify the need for a systemic approach to recognizing the range of elements that make up the EfS picture, and how they relate to one another. In parallel we recognize the role that the values of disciplines, and the academics themselves, play in influencing all the elements we have discussed. Our proposition is that if we all recognize the issues discussed, and tailor our responses to the situations of the university (and disciplines) we have targeted, then we can facilitate implementation of EfS.
Examining the Types of Mathematical Tasks Used to Explore the Mathematics Instruction by Elementary School Teachers  [PDF]

Creative Education (CE) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2013.46056

This study examined the different types of mathematical tasks used in the classroom to explore the nature of mathematics instruction of three sixth grade teachers in an elementary school. Case studies, instructional observations, and classroom artifacts were used to collect data. The results showed that the three teachers used different types of mathematical tasks and implementation methods. One teacher focused on high cognitive demand tasks, most of which involved substantial group discussion and students working cooperatively. Even though the other two also used many high cognitive demand tasks, these were mainly presented via teacher-student dialogue. By examining the types of mathematical tasks and their implementation, it was found that the group discussion tasks were generally all high cognitive demand tasks, in which the students fully explained the solution process. As for the tasks administered through teacher-student dialogue, due to the usage of large amounts of closed-ended dialogue, the students used low cognition to solve the mathematical tasks and did not have the opportunity to completely explain their thinking about the solutions. Thus, in order to fully understand the nature of mathematics instruction by teachers, there should be simultaneous consideration of the types of mathematical tasks used as well as how the tasks were implemented.
