1.6.2 Alerts

Online bookshops and some of the major search engines offer ‘Alerts’ services. These work by allowing you to set up a profile once you have registered on their site, and when there are items meeting your criteria you receive an email. The good thing about alerts is that you don’t have to do anything once you have set up your profile. The downside, particularly with alerts services from the search engines, is that given the extent to which internet traffic is on the increase whether new

8.4 When surgery is required

For some cardiovascular disease patients, surgery may be carried out as an emergency procedure or become an inevitable progression, following on from drug therapy. There are various degrees of surgery carried out, ranging from the fairly routine and minorly invasive procedure of coronary angioplasty to the major life-saving heart (or heart and lung) transplant. While it is important to understand all of the detail of surgical procedures and how the cardiac surgical team work together, it is a

4.2.3 ATM adaptation layer

The basic function of the ATM adaptation layer is to convert the user data supplied by higher layers into 48-byte blocks of data. The ATM adaptation layer is divided into two sub-layers – the convergence sub-layer, and the segmentation and re-assembly sub-layer. The convergence sub-layer provides services to higher layers through a set of protocols, but I do not need to describe these here. The segmentation and re-assembly sub-layer separates the messages from the conve

3.2 Qualified nurses: working in the shadow of medicine?

Dave, the senior registrar at Leeds General, made a strong statement about nurses on the audio clip:

Nursing staff are vital. I can't be there all the time. They are my eyes and ears. So they basically watch over the patients for me and will let me know of any changes either good or bad that may be important. If you are performing a procedure … it's very helpful to have an assistant there, someone who can help yo

1 The incredible shrinking chip

Two Scottish computer engineers with little or no physics knowledge set out to make a semiconductor transistor. This was 50 years ago, and their efforts gained them the Nobel Prize. The versatility of that transistor is now at the heart of the electronics industry. Millions of transistor switches are shrunk down into the microprocessors that are found in computers, mobile phones and almost everything else electrical.

The first transistor took years to plan and make; today more are made
