  2. CPR FOR FAMILIES\VIDEOTAPE DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Institute For Behavioral Medic            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH EARLY INITIATION OF CPR DOES IMPROVE SURVIVAL, THE PUBLIC HEALTH IMPACT HAS BEEN MINIMIZED BY NOT TARGETING THE TRAINING OF INDIVIDUALS WHO LIVE WITH PATIENTS AT INCREASED RISK FOR SUDDEN DEATH. BASED ON RECENT CONCERNS REGARDING DISEASE TRANSMISSION THROUGH MOUTH-TO-MOUTH CONTACT, WE SPECULATE THAT BYSTANDER CPR RATES ARE DECLINING AND WILL IMPACT NEGATIVELY ON SURVIVAL RATES. DESPITE SU ...

  9. DEVELOPMENT OF PLASMA SYNTHESIS TO PRODUCE PRE-ALLOYED ULTRAFINE INTERMETALLIC ALUMINIDE POWDERS FOR INJECTION MOLDING

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    INTERMETALLIC ALUMINIDES OFFER SIGNIFICANT PROMISE BECAUSE OF THEIR STRENGTH AND MODULUS RETENTION WITH TEMPERATURE, OXIDATION RESISTANCE AND LIGHTWEIGHT. IF INTERMETALLIC ALUMINIDES COULD BE INJECTION MOLDED THEIR USE WOULD BE FURTHER EXPANDED. PRESENT POWDER PRODUCTION DOES NOT PRODUCE ACCEPTABLE POWDER FOR INJECTION MOLDING. INJECTION MOLDING REQUIRES SPHERICAL, UNIFORM POWDER SIZES
