Bronchoscopy Simulation in Anesthesia Resident Education  [PDF]
John McNeil,John Pawlowski
Open Journal of Anesthesiology (OJAnes) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojanes.2013.33041
Abstract: Simulation in residency training is becoming more popular but there is limited evidence showing that it can improve a resident’s fund of knowledge, particularly in anesthesiology. We looked at whether a bronchoscopy simulation could improve performance on a thoracic anesthesia knowledge test administered both before and after using the simulator. Fourteen first-year anesthesiology residents completed the study with an average improvement on the test of 28% (p < 0.05). We conclude that bronchoscopy simulation is an effective method of educating anesthesiology residents.

Taeniosis/Neurocysticercosis Control as a Medical Problem—A Discussion Paper  [PDF]
Zbigniew Pawlowski
World Journal of Neuroscience (WJNS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/wjns.2016.62020
Abstract: Taenia solium taeniosis is a zoonosis transmitted by cysticerci from pigs. Neurocysticercosis is a fecal-borne infection spread exclusively by T. soliumeggs in a tapeworm carrier or around. Neurocysticercosis is frequently fatal and debilitating disease and a common cause of late epilepsy. Taeniosis/neurocysticercosis (t/nc) can be prevented both by control of meat-borne zoonosis, which is a traditional responsibility of veterinarians, and by chemotherapy of human taeniosis, which is usually underestimated by medical profession. Elimination of T. solium taenosis is not only the matter of organized control projects but also of routine, daily medical and veterinary services. In order to promote more effective control by treatment of human T. solium carriers the following suggestions are proposed to be discussed: 1) accept that leaving untreated any detected human carrier of T. soliumtaeniosis, the only source of neurocysticercosis, is a medical error. This statement concerns both clinical settings and field interventions; 2) accept as the clinical and public health standards a search for T. solium carrier in any possible t/nc foci and treat both detected and suspected cases of taeniosis; 3) make the diagnosis and treatment of T. solium infections in humans widely accessible and possibly free; 4) improve easy applicable tools detecting T. solium taeniosis; 5) make modern and traditional taenicides available. There is a need to improve the stability and efficacy of niclosamide and elaborate an instruction how to avoid neurological side- effects of praziquantel; 6) include prevention of t/nc into

Coupling Gravity and the Standard Model: a Conformal Approach
Marek Pawlowski
Physics , 1996,
Abstract: In 1992 Professor Ryszard R\c{a}czka started to work on formulation of a version of the Standard Model conformally coupled with gravity. Being his student I had got the honour to participate in those researches. The conformally invariant Higgs-Free Model was the result of our investigations. Ryszard R\c{a}czka passed away on 26 August 1996. I present here a short memorial survey of our results.
Security proof for cryptographic protocols based only on the monogamy of Bell's inequality violations
Marcin Pawlowski
Physics , 2009, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevA.82.032313
Abstract: We show that monogamy of Bell's inequality violations, which is strictly weaker condition than no-signaling is enough to prove security of quantum key distribution. We derive our results for a whole class of monogamy constraints and generalize our results to any theory that communicating parties may have access to. Some of these theories do not respect no-signaling principle yet still allow for secure communication. This proves that no-signaling is only a sufficient condition for the possibility of secure communication, but not the necessary one. We also present some new qualitative results concerning the security of existing quantum key distribution protocols.
Gauge theory of phase and scale
Marek Pawlowski
Physics , 1998,
Abstract: The old Weyl's idea of scale recalibration freedom and the Infeld and van der Waerden (IW) ideas concerning geometrical interpretation of the natural spinor phase gauge symmetry are discussed in the context of moderm models of fundamental particle interactions. It is argued that IW gauge symmetry can be naturaly identified with U(1) symmetry of Weinberg-Salam model. It is also argued that there are no serious reasons to reject Weyl's gauge theory from the considerations. Its inclusion enriches the original Weinberg-Salam theory and leads to predictions of new phenomena that do not contradict experiments.
Monogamy of entanglement as a necessary and sufficient condition for safe QKD in any physical theory
Marcin Pawlowski
Physics , 2007,
Abstract: We show that the monogamy of entanglement is a sufficient phenomenon in every physical theory, if the quantum key distribution is to be safe on the grounds of such theory. To do so we present the QKD protocol that is safe in any physical theory under the assumption of the monogamous entanglement only. The necessity of this condition is also discussed.
The relation between the quantum games, communication complexity problems and Bell inequalities
Marcin Pawlowski
Physics , 2007,
Abstract: We study the relation between the quantum games, communication complexity problems and Bell inequalities. In particular we are interested in answering the question whether for every element of one of these groups there is a corresponding element in the other two. We show that there are cases where there is no such relation. Moreover, in the communication complexity problems for which there is no Bell inequality the advantage of the quantum strategies over the classical ones is much higher.
How not to discard half of the cases in QKD
Marcin Pawlowski
Physics , 2007,
Abstract: All known QKD protocols require the parties to discard the results when they have chosen differen bases. In this paper we show that it is not necessary. We give examples of QKD protocols that are as safe as standard ones but do not involve the discarding the results when the bases are different or even that do not require the announcement of the bases. This leads to greater communication channel capacities and render some eavesdropping strategies useless but the most important thing is that they provide us better insight into the general structures that underlie the quantum cryptography and help to establish the boundaries of what is possible and what is not.
