Patient discussion about swing

Q. Hello my name is Nora. Years ago I was told I was bipolar and now am told I am suffering mood swings. Are not being bipolar and mood swings one of the same? This is my second time suffering depression and I have read that usually people do suffer two depressions in their life. Is this true? I was involved in an automobile accident way back in the 70's and had burr holes to relieve the pressure. I am now being told that it is common for people who suffer serious head injuries to have mood swings. True or false?

A. head trauma can alter personality, depends on the place of impact. there is a big difference between bipolar disorder and mood swings. although it look the same it's like walking vs. running, look the same but two very different states. and people can definitely experience acute depression once or twice in their life.

Although significant ground-loop size reductions were found, the study identified the need for an automated optimization scheme to find the true optimum pond area and ground loop length, as well as to facilitate the design procedure.
Inputs to the improved ground loop heat exchanger model are the temperature and mass flow rate of fluid entering the U-tube, in addition to the borehole wall temperature computed from the ground thermal response model.
At first glance, this correlation appears over-simplified because two buildings, for example, could have equivalent annual loads ratios and undisturbed earth temperatures, but have different total ground loop lengths, and consequently have different maximum/minimum entering heat pump fluid temperatures.
Kavanaugh and Rafferty (1997) suggest a design procedure, which is to size the ground loop for the heating loads, and size the supplemental heat rejecter for the difference in the cooling load.

The new system, named the Renewable Ground Loop (ReGL), utilizes various renewable energies (REs) surrounding a building to compose a desirable heat source and sink of a water-source heat pump (WSHP) to attain higher coefficient of performance (COP).
In addition to a leading-class filter, the VPIG100L balun is also fitted with a ground loop isolater, surge protection and electrostatic discharge protection to support the security of all work teams using the product within their installation projects.
It works by circulating a mixture of water and anti-freeze around a loop of pipe - called a ground loop - which is buried in the garden.
