Since early treatment and prompt clinical assessment are the cornerstones of successful clinical outcome, we hypothesized that "emergency transportation", that is, transport of a patient with SP by ambulance to the emergency department (ED), might be a critical factor in the management of patients with SSP. To this end, factors associated with in-hospital mortality were identified by multivariate logistic regression analysis.
Toward the end of my Operation Continuing Promise 2010 deployment aboard USS Iwo Jima (LHD 7), I received an email from my detailer, telling me my next job was going to be at SSP.
Essentially, the Sn[(Oct).sub.2]) moiety or the Zn catalyzes the rapid ROP, while the other components enable the step-growth SSP.

As these variations in oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon reside in interstice positions in the austenitic stainless steel atomic lattices, they produce the micro-architecture of SSP. These compositional variations combine to optimize SSP alloy's performance, providing comparable performance at half the conventional cost.
