In this book, space systems are situated in the global processes of the 21st century's information society and the role that space information systems could play in risk management is determined; methods of detecting and forecasting of both natural disasters and technogenic catastrophes and existing global and regional monitoring systems are described; and the IGMASS is introduced with its architecture and design concept and social and economic aspects and estimates of its creation, development, and utilization. Finally, results of the international symposium held in Limassol, Cyprus, in November 2009 in preparation of the IGMASS project's submission to the United Nations are discussed.
This volume covers near-source monitoring of seismogenic process, in situ probing of active faults, and techniques for seismogenic process monitoring. It is the outcome of multi-disciplinary investigations conducted over a large range of size scal...
"A Practical Approach to Neurophysiologic Intraoperative Monitoring" discusses all practical aspects of neurophysiologic intraoperative monitoring (NIOM), which is increasingly being used to continuously assess the functional integrity of a patient's nervous system during surgery. With wide use of bullet points, tables, and illustrations, this manual is essential reading for neurologists, neuroanesthesiologists, neurosurgeons, and OR techs.Education in NIOM is seldom available in traditional training programs, and textbooks on the subject are few and limited in scope. "A Practical Approach to Neurophysiologic Intraoperative Monitoring" is the only practical source for essential information on the clinical practice of NIOM. Useful for both training and day-to-day review, this handy manual is divided into two sections. Section One, 'Basic Principles' covers the modalities used in monitoring, but also rarely discussed topics including remote monitoring, billing, ethical issues, and a buyer's guide for those trying to set up laboratories.The second section reviews the clinical use of NIOM in surgery, presenting the basics of anatomy, physiology, and surgery of the various procedures, followed by details of the monitoring modalities and their interpretive criteria. Special features of this title include: portability - easy to carry and use, all major types of surgeries for which NIOM is requested, information on buying, training, set-up, and billing that is not available anywhere else, a unique technical section at the end of each chapter that reviews the logistics of monitoring a particular type of surgery. This title is useful for trainees and experienced clinicians.
