The wild and its new enemies by Jack Turner( Recording )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Turner discusses 3 claims regarding wilderness: It has ended, never existed, or our ideas about it are merely cultural constructs. Against this he talks of the anatomy and independence of natural ecosystems, and taking risks. He discusses the developments in genetic engineering and nanotechnology, many of which are no longer science fiction but fact. His presentation is a challenge to consider new perspectives on threats to our environment. Unless concerned citizens act, soon there will be no wilderness -- and that will be an inestimable loss. He concludes, "Conservationists must capture America, heart and soul. Resist much; obey little."
Outcome prediction in intensive care with special reference to cardiac surgery by Jack Turner( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The development, use, and understanding of severity of illness scoring systems has advanced rapidly in the last decade; their weaknesses and limitations have also become apparent. This work follows some of this development and explores some of these aspects. It was undertaken in three stages and in two countries. The first study investigated three severity of illness scoring systems in a general Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in Cape Town, namely the Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHE II) score, the Therapeutic Intervention Scoring System (TISS), and a locally developed organ failure score. All of these showed a good relationship with mortality, with the organ failure score the best predictor of outcome. The TISS score was felt to be more likely to be representative of intensiveness of medical and nursing management than severity of illness. The APACHE II score was already becoming widely used world-wide and although it performed less well in some diagnostic categories (for example Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome) than had been hoped, it clearly warranted further investigation. Some of the diagnosis-specific problems were eliminated in the next study which concentrated on the application of the APACHE II score in a cardiothoracic surgical ICU in London. Although group predictive ability was statistically impressive, the predictive ability of APACHE II in the individual patient was limited as only very high APACHE II scores confidently predicted death and then only in a small number of patients. However, there were no deaths associated with an APACHE II score of less than 5 and the mortality was less than 1 % when the APACHE II score was less than 10. Finally, having recognised the inadequacies in mortality prediction of the APACHE II score in this scenario, a study was undertaken to evaluate a novel concept: a combination of preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative (including APACHE II and III) variables in cardiac surgery patients admitted
Teewinot : a year in the teton range by Jack Turner( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Jack Turner grew up with an image of the Tetons engraved in his mind. As a young man, he climbed the peaks of this singular range with basic climbing gear friends. Later in life, he led treks in India, Pakistan, Nepal, China, Tibet, and Peru, but he always returned to the mountains of his youth. He continues to climb the Tetons as a guide for Exum Mountain, Guides, the oldest and most prestigious guide service in America. Teewinot is his ode to forty years in the mountains that he loves. Like Thoreau and Muir, Turner has contemplated the essential nature of a landscape. Teewinot is a book about a mountain range, its austere temper, its seasons, its flora and fauna, a few of its climbs, its weather, and the glory of the wildness. It is also about a small group of guides and rangers, nomads who inhabit the range each summer and know the mountains as intimately as they will ever be known. It is also a remarkable account of what it is like to live and work in a national park. Teewinot has something for everyone: spellbinding accounts of classic climbs, awe at the beauty of nature, and passion for some of the environmental issues facing America today. In this series of recollections, one of America's most beautiful national parks comes alive with beauty, mystery, and power. The beauty, mystery, and power of the Grand Tetons come alive in Jack Turner's memoir of a year on America's most beautiful mountain range
