clinical c's the three classification schemes that make up the omaha system: the problem classification scheme arranges 40 nursing diagnoses (called client problems) into four different domains; the intervention scheme assigns nursing interventions to the client problems; and the problem rating scale for outcomes assigns ratings to describe the client's problem-specific knowledge, behavior, and status at various points in the treatment process. See Appendix on the Omaha System.
M component [Myeloma or Macroglobulinemia] structurally homogeneous protein in serum or urine appearing as a sharp spike in the beta or gamma globulin region on protein electrophoresis. The protein is in most cases a monoclonal immunoglobulin or heavy chain fragment, or a monoclonal immunoglobulin light chain or light chain fragment, either alone or with monoclonal immunoglobulin containing the same light chain. M components are characteristic of plasma cell dyscrasias.
performance c's see performance components.
plasma thromboplastin component (PTC) factor IX, one of the coagulation factors.

To further investigate the question of what differentiates children with MD-only from those with MD+RD, the researchers fitted latent growth models to investigate whether each of six component skills (working memory, short-term memory, cognitive processing speed, math concepts, number series, phonological processing) in kindergarten made unique contributions to the elevation and/or slope of children's growth trajectories in mathematics, when controlling for the contributions of the other componential skills and reading.
If 'modularity' is a characteristically Chinese 'technological philosophy' (Lemonnier 1986; Sillar 1996), then we might expect to find modular production in Shang bone- working as indeed is suggested in the large batches of matching decorative pins produced in standardised steps and the componential design of the phase IV pins, with the heads and stems possibly produced in different areas.
A Componential Investigation of the Effects of Deadlines on Individual Decision Making
An original conceptualisation is explained and a theoretical model of the componential structure of researcher development formulated from conceptual analysis is illustrated.
