Do Patients with Asymptomatic Congenital Complete Heart Block Require a Pacemaker for Non-Cardiac Surgery?  [PDF]
Barry Swerdlow
Open Journal of Anesthesiology (OJAnes) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojanes.2018.84014
Abstract: The appropriate preparation of the patient with asymptomatic congenital complete heart block (CCHB) and a narrow QRS complex for elective non-cardiac surgery is controversial. Prophylactic temporary pacemaker insertion is associated with well-defined risks, and less invasive techniques exist to treat transient, hemodynamically significant intraoperative brady-arrhythmias. The present case report details the performance of general anesthesia for arthroscopic knee surgery in an adult patient with this condition without a pacemaker. Documentation of preoperative chronotropic competence with isoproterenol may be of value in deciding whether to proceed without temporary pacing capability in this setting.
Intraoperative Awareness with Recall Due to Inadvertent Use of Activated Charcoal Filters  [PDF]
Barry N. Swerdlow
Open Journal of Anesthesiology (OJAnes) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ojanes.2019.96012
Abstract: A 57-year-old woman underwent abdominal surgery with a subarachnoid block supplemented by “light” general endotracheal anesthesia consisting of a propofol infusion and a sub-MAC concentration of sevoflurane. The previous case in the same operating room had involved a malignant hyperthermia-susceptible patient, and charcoal filters had been placed in the breathing circuit as a precautionary measure. Because it had not been used on the evening beforehand, the circuit with filters was left in situ with a strip of tape indicating that it was clean. The woman’s anesthesiologist assumed that these filters were heat and moisture exchanger filters in an unused circuit and therefore did not remove them. Subsequently, the patient had awareness with intraoperative recall. This case highlights the potential for inadvertent use of activated charcoal filters with potentially catastrophic results. Such unintended utilization of these products likely can be minimized by improved labeling techniques.
Mitochondrial Medicine and the Neurodegenerative Mitochondriopathies
Russell H. Swerdlow
Pharmaceuticals , 2009, DOI: 10.3390/ph2030150
Abstract: Neurodegenerative diseases are a common late-life scourge for which diseasemodifying treatments are sorely needed. Mitochondrial perturbation is commonly observed in these diseases, so pursuing treatment development strategies that target mitochondria or processes affected by mitochondria seems reasonable. This review discusses the rationale underlying past and current efforts to treat neurodegenerative diseases using mitochondrial medicine, and tries to predict how future efforts might proceed.
Delayed Thoracic Radiation Injury  [PDF]
Barry Dicicco
International Journal of Clinical Medicine (IJCM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ijcm.2012.36094
Abstract: A case of delayed thoracic radiation injury occurring many years after an initial lung insult is presented. This case involves an individual who developed acute respiratory failure due to severe pleural fibrosis or fibrothorax possibly as a result of distant radiation therapy for Hodgkins disease.
Andragogy and Engagement in Online Learning: Tenets and Solutions  [PDF]
Barry Chametzky
Creative Education (CE) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2014.510095
Abstract: In this paper, the author discusses two tenets of online learning: andragogy and learner engagement. What are the foundational principles of these educational practices? In light of the discussed foundational principles, the author examines various techniques which educators could use in order to help online learners succeed in the often-stressful environment. Ultimately, educators want learners to reach the pinnacle of Bloom’s Taxonomy pyramid; by following the suggestions presented in this paper, educators will help learners accomplish this objective. Yet, more research is needed in this area. Therefore, the recommendation is for further study in the relationship between andragogy and the varied mesh of ideas associated with meaningfulness and engagement.

Coding in Classic Grounded Theory: I’ve Done an Interview; Now What?  [PDF]
Barry Chametzky
Sociology Mind (SM) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/sm.2016.64014
Abstract: Without a doubt, many graduate students—especially those who do not have a mentor skilled in the classic grounded theory design—are concerned about doing studies or dissertations using the classic grounded theory design for fear of doing them incorrectly. While there is extant literature in the field of classic grounded theory, a clear and simple how-to does not exist. The purpose of this paper is to give novice researchers interested in the classic grounded theory design a foothold in how to do one aspect of classic grounded theory analysis: coding. The explanation offered in this paper is based in theory and supported with practical examples.
The Online World Languages Anxiety Scale (OWLAS)  [PDF]
Barry Chametzky
Creative Education (CE) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2019.101005
Abstract: Sadly, anxiety and stress exist all around us. While anxiety has previously been studied in traditional foreign language environments, no information exists about anxiety in an online foreign language environment. Withouthaving a detailed understanding of potential problems in an online environment, educators, administrators, and course designers would not be able to help struggling, suffering students. Thus, the purpose of this seven-participant pilot study was to develop a more refined understanding of foreign language anxiety in the online learning environment. In some respects, the results of this?study confirm what foreign language educators already know: students prefer writing rather than speaking, interacting with the instructor rather than with peers, and keeping up with the work is sometimes a challenge. Additionally, if students don’t know basic grammatical elements in their native language,?there may be issues in the target language. Yet, researchers can now begin to understand additional components of anxiety that were not examined previously in online foreign language courses in a more nuanced manner.

Innovation and Co-Creation Process within a Service Context: A Matter of Choice or Necessity?  [PDF]
John McManus, Barry Ardley
Open Journal of Business and Management (OJBM) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ojbm.2019.71002
The notion of service ought to be embedded in the psyche of those responsi-ble for the design and delivery of service provision. Within an ever changing landscape, meeting customer expectations is a major priority for firms en-gaged in service provision. Enhancing the service experience lies in the con-text of innovation and entrepreneurship. The focus of innovation within business should take into consideration the unexpected, the nature of incon-gruities, process need and changes to structure. Innovation within service industries is widely recognised among researchers and practitioners as a key to gaining and sustaining competitive advantage. Increasingly, firms within service industries are placing new knowledge at the core of their strategies, especially knowledge about co-creation processes, knowledge of innovation and service design. In this context, the purpose of this paper is to explore the linkages between service development and co-creation processes to better understand the complexity of service innovation. The paper will first outline the notion of service and the context of service innovation. It will present a summarised view for management of service innovation. The paper will then move to illustrating how the creation and use of co-creation processes can be used to provide a shared understanding of what constitutes best practice.
