Children’s coping styles and trauma symptoms after an explosion disaster

Background:The negative impact of trauma on children and adolescents is well documented. However, few studies have investigated the relationship between coping and trauma and distress symptoms after man-made disasters, especially those not related to war.Objective:This study investigated the relationship between children’s coping styles and their self-reported levels of trauma and distress symptoms after an explosion disaster in a residential area.Method:Participants were recruited through the

A NOVEL INTEGRATED WIRELESS SENSOR NETWORK ARCHITECTURE FOR DISASTER PREVENTION

There has been growing interest in the application of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) in the field of disaster prevention. In such applications, sensor nodes are randomly deployed in an area of interest, a large number of exactly same wireless sensor nodes form a robust mesh network to prevent damages in case of a disaster. In many applications, however, deploying sophisticated sensors on every sensor nodes is unnecessary and very costly. For example, in case of Earthquake one seismographic

Evaluations of post-disaster recovery: A review of practice material

This paper reviews evaluations of post-disaster recovery efforts. The focus is on operational material and other ‘grey literature’ from disasters that have occurred in Australia, New Zealand and internationally. We develop a typology that categorises disaster events and includes whether evaluations were undertaken; the methods used; and whether the evaluations focused on the processes or outcomes of the recovery program. The review finds a lack of evaluation of post-disaster recovery. Where

Improved K-means Algorithm Based on optimizing Initial Cluster Centers and Its Application

algorithm is simple and efficient, it is applied to data mining, knowledge discovery and other fields. However, the algorithm has its inherent shortcomings, such as the K value in the K-means algorithm needs to be given in advance; clustering results are highly dependent on the selection of initial clustering centers and so on. In order to adapt to the historical data clustering of the geological disaster monitoring system, this paper presents a method to optimize the initial clustering center and the

A HIGH RESOLUTION OF HUMAN BREATH GAS SENSOR AND THE ANALYSIS OF HYPERVENTILATION FOR RESCUE ROBOTICS IN DISASTER ZONES (IRIS2010)

. Another important result is that our proposed respiratory sensor could detect the "dead space" distributed from lungs to mouth, which could not be detected by previously proposed commercial use gas concentration sensors. Therefore, this sensor can detect a human-specific small-amount of molecular gas change of the survivors in a disaster zones. In addition, we measured the hyperventilation state, in which it is assumed that the survivor is in critical conditions.

Investigation on features and tendencies of axle-box heating

Breakdown of rolling stock axle-boxes if not detected in due time may cause a rail accident or disaster. At present, a lot of advanced technologies, modern equipment and devices, which “recognizes” faulty axle-boxes when the train is in motion, have been implemented. However, the timely identification of breakdown of rolling stock axle-boxes still is an acute problem, the initial stage of damage emergence being especially problematic. Presently, rolling stock axle-box breakdown is determined

HARDWARE IMPLEMENTATION OF UWB RADAR FOR DETECTION OF TRAPPED VICTIMS IN COMPLEX ENVIRONMENT

Ultra-wideband (UWB) radar plays an important role in search and rescue at disaster relief sites. Identifying vital signs and locating buried survivors are two important research contents in this field. In general, it is hard to identify a human’s vital signs (breathing, body temperature, brain waves and heartbeat) in complex environments due to the low signal-to-noise ratio of the vital sign in radar signals. In this paper, advanced signal-processing approaches are used to identify and to

The main methodology of the device is to monitoring the vehicle speed via Ethernet shield through Internet of things. The protective system is maintained by analysing gas tank through gas sensor which details about the gas leakage. The advantages of this device are alarming the driver when there is any gas leakage in the vehicle and also informs about the speed of the car. A

Metallo-Beta-Lactamase Producing Pseudomonas aeruginosa in a Healthcare Setting in Alexandria, Egypt

Pseudomonas aeruginosa has emerged as a major healthcare associated pathogen that creates a serious public health disaster in both develop­ing and developed countries. In this work we aimed at studying the occurrence of metallo-beta-lactamase (MBL) producing P. aeruginosa in a healthcare setting in Alexandria, Egypt. This cross sectional study included 1583 clinical samples that were collected from patients admit­ted to Alexandria University Students’ Hospital. P. aeruginosa

In this paper I examine global trends and causes of extreme climatological, weather, and disaster events, since our original study. These events are growing and have multiple causes of growing population, and economic wealth, as well as weather and climate. I then consider trends in adaptation especially as it is addressed to climate change. For a conclusion, I
