ABSTRACT We published the Canadian 2003 International Consensus Algorithm for the Diagnosis, Therapy, and Management of Hereditary Angioedema (HAE; C1 inhibitor [C1-INH] deficiency) and updated this as Hereditary angioedema: a current state-of-the-art review: Canadian Hungarian 2007 International Consensus Algorithm for the Diagnosis, Therapy, and Management of Hereditary Angioedema.
To update the International Consensus Algorithm for the Diagnosis, Therapy and Management of Hereditary Angioedema (circa 2010).
The Canadian Hereditary Angioedema Network (CHAEN)/Réseau Canadien d'angioédème héréditaire (RCAH) http://www.haecanada.com and cosponsors University of Calgary and the Canadian Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (with an unrestricted educational grant from CSL Behring) held our third Conference May 15th to 16th, 2010 in Toronto Canada to update our consensus approach. The Consensus document was reviewed at the meeting and then circulated for review.
This manuscript is the 2010 International Consensus Algorithm for the Diagnosis, Therapy and Management of Hereditary Angioedema that resulted from that conference.
Consensus approach is only an interim guide to a complex disorder such as HAE and should be replaced as soon as possible with large phase III and IV clinical trials, meta analyses, and using data base registry validation of approaches including quality of life and cost benefit analyses, followed by large head-to-head clinical trials and then evidence-based guidelines and standards for HAE disease management.

    ABSTRACT: The Critical Path based Project Management tools do not take an adequate account of risk. Monte Carlo Simulation provides an improved methodology to quantify schedule risk, and as such is a significant advance in project management technology. This paper illustrates the use of this methodology for better understanding, designing, and managing a project such that the detrimental effects of these risks can be minimized. In addition, the results of this methodology are contrasted with that of CPM, PERT, and PROBABILISTIC PERT. This contrast illustrates the shortcomings of these widely used methodologies in a typical Engineering environment.

    ABSTRACT: This paper proposes techniques to exploit the capability of modern power converters to operate at high switching frequencies. This is done for two reasons: (1) to improve the quality of the pulse width synthesized waveforms supplied by a voltage source inverter to an alternating current machine within a microcomputer-based machine drive system; and (2) to compensate for the dead time due to the data acquisition and control algorithm computation
