To combat the low profit margin

LOS ANGELES Cheap Linus Ullmark Jersey , Oct. 28 (Xinhua) -- An academic medical center at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) has launched the first "mobile stroke unit" (MSU) on the West Coast of the United States this week to bring the hospital to the patient, potentially leading to higher survival rates and better outcomes for patients.

"With the UCLA Health Mobile Stroke Unit, we are bringing the hospital to the patient instead of the patient to the hospital, in order to save as much brain as possible," Dr. Jeffrey Saver Cheap Jason Kasdorf Jersey , director of the UCLA Comprehensive Stroke Center, was quoted as saying in a news release.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), someone in the United States suffers a stroke every 40 seconds. Every 4 minutes, someone dies of a stroke. Strokes kill about 140,000 Americans each year, which is 1 out of every 20 deaths.

When treating stroke victims Cheap Anders Nilsson Jersey , every second counts. But in large cities, dense traffic can make it difficult to get a patient to the emergency room in a timely manner, and in rural areas, specialized care can be miles away.

"Rapid response is critical, because the sooner a stroke is treated, the better the patient's outcome Cheap Jake McCabe Jersey ," said Dr. May Nour, medical director of the UCLA Arline and Henry Gluck Stroke Rescue Program. "We know from research at UCLA that in a typical stroke, every minute that goes by without treatment, 2 million brain cells die."

So UCLA Health is testing MSU to help medical personnel start treatment in the field, allowing doctors to make a diagnosis, administer medication and even conduct Computed Tomography (CT) scans before arriving at the hospital.

The high-tech vehicle is a unique type of ambulance equipped with a mobile CT scanner Cheap Zemgus Girgensons Jersey , which allows doctors to diagnose and treat strokes in the field with appropriate medications. Within the unit are a mobile blood-testing laboratory, as well as a neurologist, critical care nurse, CT technologist and paramedic.

In the initial phase of the pilot program, a neurologist specializing in stroke treatment will be riding in the unit. As the program develops, a neurologist will oversee care more efficiently via a live video and voice connection from Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center Cheap Matt Moulson Jersey , according to UCLA.

The use of specially equipped ambulances has begun to spread across the United States. The first U.S. MSU launched in Houston in early 2014, following the world's first in Berlin, which began running in early 2011. So far, about ten other U.S. MSUs are in operation, with most of them having been put into service during the past 15 months.

The UCLA unit is the first such unit to operate in California. It is now part of a U.S. national study to test the value of starting stroke care in the field.

"When stroke victims are not treated quickly, they are more likely to need a lifetime of costly care Cheap Johan Larsson Jersey ," said Nour. "If we are able to treat and improve outcomes for 25 patients over a 5-year period, we will break even on the cost of the mobile stroke unit."

Trade between China and countries along the Belt and Road amounted to 786 billion U.S. dollars in the first three quarters, the Ministry of Commerce (MOC) said Thursday.

The volume was a 15-percent increase from the same period last year, MOC spokesperson Gao Feng told a press conference.

From January to September, Chinese businesses directly invested 9.6 billion U.S. dollars in countries along the Belt and Road, up 29.7 percent year on year.

Investments made by Belt and Road countries in China stood at 4.24 billion U.S. dollars Cheap Brian Gionta Jersey , up 34.4 percent year on year.

Chinese businesses have helped build 75 economic and trade cooperation zones in 24 countries along the Belt and Road, generating over 209,000 jobs, according to Gao.

The Belt and Road is a trade and infrastructure network connecting Asia with Europe and Africa along -- and beyond -- the ancient Silk Road trade routes. The modern version comprises an overland Silk Road Economic Belt and a 21st Century Maritime Silk Road.

Compact and fuel-efficient vehicles are becoming more prominent in the minds of consumers as fuel prices continue to be on the rise. However, car manufacturers stand to incur losses on developing such vehicles as conventional SUVs and trucks have a larger profit margin. To buffer out these losses, the development of high-end compact cars are in the minds of manufacturers. Along with the design of the car being an important factor for consumers Cheap Evander Kane Jersey , car insurance cover also acts as an important aspect to consumers.

What Consumers Want

It has always been true that car manufacturers have enjoyed higher profit margins on large cars like sport utility vehicles, trucks, and vans; it has also been the case that these manufacturers make large profits on edgy sports cars. But what happens when the large cars require too much fuel, and the sports cars emit too much carbon? Increasingly budget-conscious consumers opt for low-margin compact cars.

To combat the low profit margins on their fuel efficient models, car manufacturers are increasingly making cars with futuristic, cutting-edge designs. They know that Cheap Josh Gorges Jersey , while consumers are primary in the market for a fuel efficient vehicle, they’ll spend extra money of that high-efficiency vehicle has raw curb appeal and a design that sets it apart from other, more bland models.

Such is the case with BMW’s “Mini” brand of vehicles. They command a far higher price point than similar, generic models from other manufacturers on account of their unique design and curb appeal. There is simply nothing else that looks like a Mini, and it’s considered a status symbol to have on in the garage or on the street. BMW has capitalized on the increasing consumer perception that a world of fuel efficient vehicles is differentiated more by wh.
