    This open access book provides information how to choose and collect the appropriate metrics for a software project in an organization. There are several kinds of metrics, based on the analysis of source code and developed for different programming paradigms such as structured programming and object-oriented programming (OOP). This way, the book follows three main objectives: (i) to identify existing and easily-collectible measures, if possible in the early phases of software development, for predicting and modeling both the traditional attributes of software systems and attributes specifically related to their efficient use of resources, and to create new metrics for such purposes; (ii) to describe ways to collect these measures during the entire lifecycle of a system, using minima...

    Severe hypothyroidism (SH) is a rare but life-threatening endocrine emergency. Only a few data are available on its management and outcomes of the most severe forms requiring ICU admission. We aimed to describe the clinical manifestations, management, and in-ICU and 6-month survival rates of these patients.

    Fontan circulation is an iatrogenic definitive palliative condition for patients with single ventricle physiology. The patient with Fontan circulation can be sensitive and vulnerable to change systemic vascular resistance (SVR), pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR), and inotropy. Pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma (P-PGL) are neuroendocrine tumors with catecholamine hypersecretion. The number of patients with Fontan circulation and P-PGL is expected to increase because survival rate of the patients is improved and P-PGL have a tendency to develop under cyanotic heart disease [1, 2]. Chronic hypoxia exposure followed by aberrant activation of common hypoxia cellular pathways and hypoxia-inducible factors in chromaffin cells appear to mechanism for the pathogenesis of P-PGL [1].

    Hypercalcemia crisis is a rare but severe form of hypercalcemia complicated by multiple organ failure. The most common cause of hypercalcemia crisis is primary hyperparathyroidism caused by a parathyroid tumor, which often requires surgical resection [1]. However, there are no clear recommendations on when the surgery should be performed. Although there have been case reports of venoarterial-extra corporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) support after cardiac arrest due to hypercalcemia crisis [2], there have been no reports of prophylactic VA-ECMO for circulatory and respiratory failure during surgical treatment of hypercalcemia crisis. In this report, we describe a case in which prophylactic VA-ECMO was used to safely manage circulatory and respiratory failure during parathyroid t...

    Electromagnetics, volume 2 by Steven W. Ellingson is a 216-page peer-reviewed open textbook designed especially for electrical engineering students in the third year of a bachelor of science degree program. It is intended as the primary textbook for the second semester of a two-semester undergraduate engineering electromagnetics sequence. The book addresses magnetic force and the Biot-Savart law; general and lossy media; parallel plate and rectangular waveguides; parallel wire, microstrip, and coaxial transmission lines; AC current flow and skin depth; reflection and transmission at planar boundaries; fields in parallel plate, parallel wire, and microstrip transmission lines; optical fiber; and radiation and antennas.

    This Open Textbook is a dynamic guide incorporating the essential skills needed to build a foundation in Financial Analysis. Students and readers will learn how to insightfully read a Financial Statement, utilize key financial ratios in order to derive forward-looking investment-related inferences from the accounting data, engage in elementary forecasting and modeling, master the theory of the Time Value of Money, and learn to price stocks and bonds in an environment in which interest rates constantly change. Ample problems and solutions, and review questions are provided to the student so that s/he can gauge his/her progress. This text will be continually updated in order to provide novel information and enhance students’ experiences.

    After citrate administration, calcium citrate complexes are formed. Clearance in diffusive modes increases with the dialysate flow, in convective modes with filtration flow [12]. Complexes that are not removed through the hemofilter return to the patient. In convective modes up to 60% of the citrate given prefilter is cleared via the hemofilter into the effluent (sometimes more in diffusive modes), the rest returning to the patient for metabolization [12]. Decreasing blood flow limits the amount of delivered citrate to the extracorporeal circuit. Limiting blood flows in convective modes in combination with high filtration rates may lead to a high filtration fraction. Therefore, higher blood flows resulting in a higher delivered citrate dose may be necessary in convective modes, comp...
