Concerned, Uncomfortable, Safety (a communication tool for nurses used to convey to physicians important changes in the health status of patients).

Patient care

The nurse explains to the physician that he or she is concerned about the patient's condition, is uncomfortable managing it without further intervention, and is convinced that the patient's safety could be compromised by a failure to intervene.

To maximize the transmission rate in the aggregated incentive time, the aggregated incentive time is allocated to a CU with the highest transmission rate to the AP among the entire set of CUs.
Now, we intend to maximize the throughput of NSCRS by optimally allocating the power to the CUs, where the throughput is defined as the total number of transmitted bits divided by the measurement time.
The objective function of (9a) aims to maximize the throughput of NSCRS by optimally allocating the power of [P.sub.m] (m = 1, 2, ..., M) to the CUs for the data transmission of the mth (m = 1, 2, ..., M) PU; Pm is the power allocation vector at the CUs for the data transmission of the mth PU and is denoted by [P.sub.m] = [[P.sub.m,], [P.sub.m,], ..., [P.sub.m,]].
It can be seen from the figure that if the power factor of the CU 1 is fixed, regardless of the allocation of power factors 0.3, 0.5, and 0.7 in the other CUs, the impact on the outage probability of CU 1 remains the same.
7 indicates that the weak link in CU 1 is the SN-RN link due to the lower source transmitting power in CU 1; however, this link suffers from strong interference from other CUs.
(1981) and Smith (1984), Patin and McNiel (1991a) developed a direct measure of the net monetary benefits to saver and borrower members, and applied it to calculate the differences between the net monetary benefits allocated to savers (NMBS) and borrowers (NMBB) in the years 1984 and 1985 for each of 10,565 (10,142) federally chartered and 4,657 (4,932) state chartered/federally insured CUs in the United Sates.
Since the National Association of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU) claims that non-core members are more likely to be borrowers in a CU than the core members, Leggett and Stewart (1999) used a more restrictive version of the approach proposed by Patin and McNiel (1991a) to identify the orientation of 2,025 federally chartered CUs in 1997 from the twenty-five largest Metropolitan Statistical Areas in USA.
In 2003, customer satisfaction with banks and CUs dropped (Kuehner-Hebert, 2003).
As interest rates dropped, their satisfaction rating of CUs dropped from 71% to 58% (Kuehner-Hebert, 2003).
