strength, force, or concentration.
intensity of nursing care a term in the nursing minimum data set, defined as the total time and staff mix of nursing personnel resources consumed by an individual patient or client during the episode of care under review.

in·ten·si·ty

(in-ten'si-tē),
1. Marked tension; great activity; often used simply to denote a measure of the degree or amount of some quality.
2. The magnitude of acoustic energy, energy flux, field strength, or force.

Heart rate, RPE, and oxygen uptake increased from resting values during exercise at low-, moderate-, and high-intensities, with the highest values being at high intensity (P<0.01 at highintensity and P<0.05 at lower intensities) (Table 3).
Two days after the vibrations, the intensities decreased by about 2 percent.
* "Intensity dependence" is a general term used to refer to the pattern of ERP amplitude changes to tones of increasing intensities. Some individuals show increased, and others decreased, intensity dependence.
In addition, the observed intensities are significantly affected by spectrometer efficiency.
The Purdue researchers demonstrated significant modulation at intensities comparable to the illumination in a dimly lit room.
The temblor was recorded the following various intensities:
Meanwhile, the following areas felt the earthquake at various Instrumental Intensities: .5 readability="0 Intensity III - Alabel, Sarangani Intensity II - General Santos City Tupi, South Cotabato Kiamba, Sarangani Kidapawan City Davao City Gingoog City readability="0 Intensity I - Cebu City T'boli, South Cotabato Phivolcs categorizes earthquakes felt at Intensity IV as moderately strong.
The quake, which was tectonic in origin, had a depth of only 2 km, with the following registered intensities:
The traditional role of magnetic neutron scattering is the measurement of magnetic Bragg intensities in the magnetically ordered regime, which can be used to determine the spin configuration and directions of the atomic magnetic moments as a function of temperature, pressure, and applied magnetic field, on single crystals samples, powders, thin films and artificially grown multilayers (1).
The availability of such intensities would greatly expand the types of materials studies that researchers could undertake without having to go to special facilities.
The following measured intensities have been felt in the following areas:
Intensity II was felt in Cotabato City and General Santos City,which means that the jolting was "felt by few individuals at rest indoors." Based on Instrumental Intensities, Intensity IIwas recorded in Alabel, Sarangani.
