Portfolio Optimization with Asset-Liability Ratio Regulation ConstraintsThis paper considers both a top regulation bound and a bottom regulation bound imposed on the asset-liability ratio at the regulatory time T to reduce risks of abnormal high-speed growth of asset price within a short period of time (or high investment leverage), and to mitigate risks of low assets' return (or a sharp fall). Applying the stochastic optimal control technique, a Hamilton–Jacobi–Bellman (HJB) equation is derived....

Determining the psychophysiological responses of military aircrew when exposed to acute disorientation stimuliIntroductionExposure to enviromental flight conditions may impair performance and physical integrity, thus training in simulated environments it is a key factor. This research aimed to study the psychophysiological response, cortical arousal and autonomic modulation of pilots and medical aircrew personnel during disorientation exposure, considering gender, experience, flying hours and body...

Osmotic Demyelination Syndrome in a Patient with Hypokalemia but No Hyponatremia
Osmotic Demyelination Syndrome in a Patient with Hypokalemia but No Hyponatremia: Osmotic demyelination syndrome (ODS) is characterized by loss of myelin in various parts of the central nervous system. It is mainly caused by a rapid correction of hyponatremia, although other factors that may cause rapid rise in serum osmolality can also be associated with its development. Its prognosis is poor and the recovery rate is unknown. The authors report a rare case of a patient with multiple risk factors...

Endotracheal tube fixation time: a comparison of three fixation methods in a military field scenario
Endotracheal tube fixation time: a comparison of three fixation methods in a military field scenario: IntroductionEndotracheal intubation is required in many emergency, trauma and prehospital scenarios. Endotracheal tube (ETT) fixation must be stable and quick to apply to enable rapid evacuation and patient transport. This study compares performance times of three common ETT securement techniques which are practical for out-of-hospital and combat scenarios.MethodsWe compared the time required by...

Videolaryngoscopy Quality with Protective Cover of Intraoral Odontologic Camera Evaluation in Vocal Fold Coverage LesionsThe examination of the larynx with indirect visualization is one of a series of steps in otorhinolaryngological evaluation. In the past this exam was performed more commonly with mirrors and headlights, but for at least the last four decades physicians have resorted to assessing the laryngopharynx with both rigid and fiberoptic instruments. The rigid 70° laryngoscope is the most...
