Ting JY: Letter to the Editors: The potential role of prehospital thrombolysis and time-critical stroke transfers in the northern Norway aeromedical retrieval system
Jan Norum
International Journal of Emergency Medicine , 2011, DOI: 10.1186/1865-1380-4-43
Abstract: Concerning neurological/stroke patients, there is at present intense debate about whether the small hospital unit at Longyearbyen on the Svalbard Islands should be equipped with a CT scanner. Such a tool would make diagnosis of patients suitable for thrombolysis possible. However, such an investment will not be cost-effective with a low volume of patients and must be considered only from a preparedness point of view. I agree with Ting that it is uncertain whether more Arctic tourism will increase the aeromedical workload. However, the increasing activity with regard to oil and gas installations together with shipping should also be considered in this setting [3].The author declares that they have no competing interests.
EPICS: A Retrospective on Porting iocCore to Multiple Operating Systems
M. R. Kraimer,J. B. Anderson,J. O. Hill,W. E. Norum
Physics , 2001,
Abstract: An important component of EPICS (Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System) is iocCore, which is the core software in the IOC (input/output controller) front-end processors. At ICALEPCS 1999 a paper was presented describing plans to port iocCore to multiple operating systems. At that time iocCore only supported vxWorks, but now it also supports RTEMS, Solaris, Linux, and WinNT. This paper describes some key features of how iocCore supports multiple operating systems.
Dr. Bailey: An exemplar of critical care
Norum,Karen E.;
Comportamento Organizacional e Gest?o , 2007,
Abstract: we often confuse praise and being nice and polite with appreciative, positive behavior and actions. however, the distinction between positive and negative is not so clear. some seemingly negative behaviors and actions effectively evoke positive emotions and behavior. criticism and honest candor can serve a positive function, helping us to learn and grow. this paper makes a case for critical care. such communication is direct and specific but not malicious. the character of dr. bailey from the u.s. tv show grey?s anatomy is used as an example of someone who demonstrates critical care.
Socioeconomic characteristics and health outcomes in Sami speaking municipalities and a control group in northern Norway
Jan Norum,Carsten Nieder
International Journal of Circumpolar Health , 2012, DOI: 10.3402/ijch.v71i0.19127
Abstract: Objectives. The Sami people constitute an ethnic minority in northern Norway. The objectives of this study were to compare municipalities with a majority of Sami in the population and a control group with regard to socioeconomic factors and health outcome. Methods. Original data from Statistics Norway and Directorate of health on socioeconomic factors (education, unemployment, disability, poverty) and health outcomes [total mortality, cancer specific mortality, cardiovascular disease (CVD) specific mortality] were imported from the “Health Atlas” at the Northern Norway Regional Health Authority (NNRHA) trust. The 8 municipalities in the administration area of the Sami language law (Sami-majority group – 18,868 inhabitants) was compared with a control group consisting of 11 municipalities where the Sami constitute a small minority in the population (18,931 inhabitants). Most data were from 2005 and 2008. Results. There was no significant difference in socioeconomic factors. Overall, cancer- and CVD-specific mortality rates were similar in both groups. The life expectancy was significantly longer among women in the Sami-majority area (81.3 vs. 79.5 years, p=0.035) and males (74.5 vs. 72.0 years, p=0.037). Conclusion. Socioeconomic factors and cause-specific mortality rate were similar in the Sami-majority group and the control group. Residents of both sexes in Sami-majority areas enjoyed longer life expectancy.
Sami-speaking municipalities and a control group's access to somatic specialist health care (SHC): a retrospective study on general practitioners’ referrals
Jan Norum,Carsten Nieder
International Journal of Circumpolar Health , 2012, DOI: 10.3402/ijch.v71i0.17346
Abstract: Objectives: The Sami people constitute the indigenous people in northern Norway. The objective of this study was to clarify whether they have a similar supply of somatic specialist health care (SHC) as others. Methods: The referrals from general practitioners (GPs) in the primary health care (PHC) in the administration area of the Sami language law (8 municipalities) were matched with a control group of 11 municipalities. Population data was accessed from Statistics Norway and the time period 2007–2010 was analysed. The main outcome was the number of referrals per 1,000 inhabitants according to age group, gender and place of living. Results: 504,292 referrals in northern Norway were indentified and the Sami and control group constituted 23,093 and 22,541 referrals, respectively. The major findings were a similar referral ratio (RR) (1.14 and 1.17) (p = 0.624) and women more commonly referred (female/male ratio 1.45 and 1.41) in both groups. GPs in both groups were loyal to their local hospital trust. Conclusion: Inhabitants in Sami-speaking municipalities in northern Norway have a similar supply of SHC services as controls. Inter-municipal variation was significant in both groups.
A Compton Backscattering Polarimeter for Measuring Longitudinal Electron Polarization
I. Passchier,D. W. Higinbotham,C. W. de Jager,B. E. Norum,N. H. Papadakis,N. P. Vodinas
Physics , 1999,
Abstract: Compton backscattering polarimetry provides a fast and accurate method to measure the polarization of an electron beam in a storage ring. Since the method is non-destructive, the polarization of the electron beam can be monitored during internal target experiments. For this reason, a Compton polarimeter has been constructed at NIKHEF to measure the polarization of the longitudinally polarized electrons which can be stored in the AmPS ring. The design and results of the polarimeter, the first Compton polarimeter to measure the polarization of a stored longitudinally polarized electron beam directly, are presented in this paper.
Air ambulance flights in northern Norway 2002-2008. Increased number of secondary fixed wing (FW) operations and more use of rotor wing (RW) transports
Jan Norum, Trond M Elsbak
International Journal of Emergency Medicine , 2011, DOI: 10.1186/1865-1380-4-55
Abstract: The objective was to describe and analyse the two supplementary air ambulance [fixed wing (FW) and rotor wing (RW)] alternatives' activity during the study period (2002-2008). Furthermore we aimed to compare our findings with reports from other north European regions.A retrospective analysis. The air ambulance fleet's activity according to the electronic patient record database of "Luftambulansetjenesten ANS" (LABAS) was analysed. The subject was the fleet's operations in northern Norway, logistics, and patients handled. Type of flight, distances, frequency, and patients served were the main outcome measures.A significant increase (45%) in the use of RW and a shift in FW operations (less primary and more secondary) were revealed. The shift in FW operations reflected the centralisation of several health care services [i.e. percutaneous cardiac intervention (PCI), trauma, and cancer surgery] during the study period. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) and injuries were the main diagnoses and constituted half of all operations. CVD was the most common cause of FW operations and injuries of the RW ones. The number of air ambulance operations was 16 per 1,000 inhabitants. This was more frequent than in other north European regions.The use of air ambulances and especially RW was significantly increased during the study period. The change in secondary FW operations reflected centralisation of medical care. When health care services are centralised, air ambulance services must be adjusted to the new settings.Northern Norway covers half of Norway's land area and constitutes in size about two-thirds of that of the UK. Including the sea (Norwegian and Barents Sea) areas under Norwegian surveillance, the figures are significantly increased [1]. The people of northern Norway are scattered and the total population is only about 460,000 inhabitants. One fourth of the population are citizens of Bod? and Troms?. About 2,500 people live in the Norwegian Arctic (Svalbard, Bear Island, Jan Ma
Air ambulance services in the Arctic 1999-2009: a Norwegian study
Jan Norum, Trond M Elsbak
International Journal of Emergency Medicine , 2011, DOI: 10.1186/1865-1380-4-1
Abstract: The objective of this study was to analyse the air ambulance operations performed in the Norwegian Arctic and study variations in diagnoses and flight patterns around the year.A retrospective analysis. All air ambulance operations performed during the time 1999 - 2009 period were analysed. The subjects were patients transported and flights performed. The primary outcome measures were patients' diagnoses and task patterns around the year.A total of 345 patients were transported and 321 flights performed. Coronary heart and vascular disease, bone fractures and infections were the most common diagnoses. Most patients (85%) had NACA score 3 or 4. Half of all fractures occurred in April and August. Most patients were males (66%), and one fourth was not Norwegian. The median flying time (one way) was 3 h 33 m. Ten percent of the flights were delayed, and only 14% were performed between midnight and 8.00 AM. The period April to August was the busiest one (58% of operations).Norway has run a safe air ambulance service in the Arctic for the last 11 years. In the future more shipping and polar adventure operations may influence the need for air ambulances, especially during summer and autumn.The Northern Norway Regional Health Authority (NNRHA) trust is responsible for the specialist health care service and all patient transportations in northern Norway. This includes the Norwegian Arctic areas (Svalbard, Bear Island, Hopen and Jan Mayen). Svalbard is a group of islands reaching up to the 80th degree northern latitude and covers an area of 61,020 km2. The land area constitutes 16% of Norway. The largest island is Spitsbergen, and its municipalities are Lonyearbyen, Barentsburg, Svea, Hornsund and Ny-?lesund. The main airport is located at Longyearbyen, but there is also a minor one at Svea. The main industries on the island are coal mines, tourism, education, research and satellite services.
