Acute or short-term low back pain generally lasts from a few days to a few weeks.

The cost of health care has been a continuing concern of government over the past ten years. [1] During the Reagan administration, Congress ordered the GAO to produce numerous reports on the subject of cost containment almost to the exclusion of assessing quality in health care. Cost remains an important issue, even as the rate of inflation.

A boiling water reactor (BWR) is a type of light water nuclear reactor used for the generation of electrical power. It is the second most common type of electricity-generating nuclear reactor after the pressurized water reactor (PWR), which is also a type of light water nuclear reactor.

The main difference between a BWR and PWR is that in a BWR, the reactor core heats water, which turns to. The secondary containment, which surrounds the primary containment (drywell and suppression pool) and houses the spent fuel pool and emergency core cooling systems.

The BWR Mark I containment was reinforced; All those improvements in quality and redundancy did cost a lot to install, but they arguably had a massive payback in terms of operating efficiency. Standardization and construction in series — This was found to have large potential for capital cost reduction: between 15% and 40%.

A high pressure test of a mixed-scaled model ( in geometry and in shell thickness) of a steel containment vessel (SCV), representing an improved boiling water reactor (BWR) Mark II containment, was conducted on Decemberat Sandia National Laboratories.

This paper describes the preliminary results of the high pressure test. the susceptibility of a reference plant (BWR/4 with Mark I containment) to loss of net positive suction head (NPSH) margin because of debris blockage of the emergency core cooling system (ECCS) suction strainers.

Cohen & Associates Old Dominion Drive McLean, Virginia Under Contract No. 1W. The potential conflict between cost containment practices and the preservation of quality care is reviewed and discussed.

Then a framework for considering the present state of knowledge about the relationship between different methods of cost containment and quality is presented.

The view that cost containment poses a threat to the quality of care is advanced and the provider's central role in Cited by: 3. We conducted a wait-list control randomised trial of an outpatient rehabilitation service for people living with and beyond cancer, delivered in a hospice day care unit.
