Before the seminar begins, let's do an exercise that will allow you to understand what the goals of this book are.
Have you recently come to a new city - to a place where you don’t know anyone, where you don’t orient yourself and can’t even read street name plates? Right now we'll get a simple, but extremely important lesson. Reflections on how to find a way in an unfamiliar area will help us understand how to deal with an unfamiliar idea. The study of movement in space will allow you to better understand how to move in the process of solving a problem.
To show what I mean, I invite you to take a walk around Moscow. I spent a lot of time in this city, doing business, and (at certain times of the year) this city can be considered an excellent place for walking. I still vividly remember the first morning in Moscow - the excitement of the anticipation of traveling through a completely foreign city was hampered with the fear of disappearing forever in the dark streets. I would like you to at least partly feel my feelings.
Imagine that we are staying at the George the Victorious hotel * in the center of Moscow. We arrived the day before. When you woke up, you saw a beautiful spring morning outside. We met at breakfast and agreed that the best way to feel the new city is to take a long walk. Personally, all my life I adored everything related to space, and therefore I suggest you visit the Yuri Gagarin Museum, a memorial to the first man who made a space flight. Once, many years ago, I read that there is such a museum in this city. However, I did not know exactly where.
* Name coined by the author. ed.
After a hearty breakfast, we approach the reception desk and ask how to get to the Gagarin Museum. The first thing the receptionist does is that we offer to call a taxi, since the museum is quite far from the hotel. But we refuse and say that we would prefer to walk.
“Fine,” answered the clerk. “This is how you can get there.”
Explanation 1: narration
The receptionist says: “This is a rather long journey that can take up to two hours. Here is what you need to do: turn right after leaving the hotel. Soon you will find yourself near a river (which, of course, is also called Moscow). When you reach it, turn left on the embankment. Walk for a few minutes, and the Kremlin will be on your left. Passing by the Kremlin, you will see a large bridge on the right hand, and on the left - St. Basil's Cathedral. Head towards the cathedral and go around it to the right. Turn right and go up the street, and you will pass by many old buildings - it's worth noting that among them are the oldest buildings in the city.
Pretty quickly you will find yourself on a wide road divided by a garden in the middle. This is Lubyansky passage. Turn left and continue uphill. Ten minutes later you will find yourself in Lubyanka, in front of the old KGB building. It is impossible to miss it - it is a large yellow building in neoclassical style with huge iron doors decorated with decorative shields. Believe me, you hardly want to get inside. Passing along Lubyanka Square, turn right onto Sretenka street. Now everything is simple - you are on the street that will lead you to the museum. As you walk down the street, its name will change. At first it will be Sretenka, then after you cross the Garden Ring, Prospect Mira.
Drive along Mira Avenue another three or four kilometers to the north. In about thirty minutes you will reach the huge intersection at the Riga station, but keep going straight. Forty more minutes, and you will find yourself at a fork in the road, where Mira Avenue goes to the right, and Ostankino Passage - to the left. Drive along Mira Avenue for about a couple of minutes, and you will see the Gagarin Museum on your left. That's all. Have a nice trip"*.
* The route to the Memorial Museum of Cosmonautics (OCE) is described hereinafter. Note ed.
Explanation 2: list
And now let's try something completely different. Imagine that the porter takes out a sheet of paper and a pen, and then, after a little thought, makes up the following list for us (writing down the names of the streets in Latin and Cyrillic):
Right on Moss Street
To the left along the embankment of the Moskva River, Moskvoretskaya Embankment
Left on Red Square
Right on Varvarka Street
Left on Lubyansky passage
Right on Sretenka street
Cross the Garden Ring
Continue on Mira Avenue
Walk past the Riga station
Continue on Mira Avenue after a fork with Ostankino passage.
Search the museum building on your left
Reaching out for us, the clerk says: "Follow these instructions, and you will reach the museum in just over two hours."

- Transfer to PIT
General principles: - any patient after general anesthesia should be observed in the ICU or wake-up room until full recovery of consciousness, muscle tone and adequate spontaneous breathing; - transfer to PIT is possible after stabilization of the main indicators of hemodynamics and oxygen transport function of the blood; - transfer to the ICU of patients with ASA3-5 is carried out under the control of pulse oximetry; -
- Transfer Criteria from the Awakening Chamber
Before transferring from the patient’s waking room, the anesthesiologist must be examined. Exceptions are possible only if clear and unambiguous translation criteria are developed, which are thoroughly checked by well-trained awakening ward sisters; in this case, the issue of transfer can be resolved by them without the participation of a doctor. However, the responsibility for this lies with the anesthesiologist:
- ANIMAL TRANSFER TO NEW FEED
HEALTHY ANIMALS Animals, like people, are victims of habits and, often, they need help to switch to another feed. Transfer to another feed gradually, within 5-10 days. Mix the new feed with the old one, gradually increasing the proportion. Most animals easily switch to our feed, but some individuals are more sensitive to feed changes. If the animal is hard to switch
- Transfer from IC to independent blood circulation
IR stop gradually, constantly evaluating the values of blood pressure, volume and pressure of filling the ventricles and cardiac output. Aortic pressure is often measured: it should correlate with pressure in the radial artery. After IR blood pressure in the aorta is often higher than in the radial artery, whereas in normal conditions the ratio is inverse (Chapter 6). The surgeon can palpatorno evaluate the pressure in the aortic root. Volume

Urgent referral of patients for inpatient treatment is carried out in the nearest health care facility of the UIS or health care facilities of the state or municipal health care systems. In the direction of emergency hospitalization are summarized
- Algorithms for automating translation to spontaneous breathing
In 1977, the principle of mandatory minute ventilation was formulated by Hewlett et al. It consisted in controlling the parameters of mechanical ventilation based on the minute volume of respiration. The degree of respiratory support automatically changes so that the total volume of minute ventilation (forced and spontaneous) remains within the limits set by the operator. This principle is implemented in many
- Litargus, that is, cold sarsam, in translation - memory loss
Ligargus is a mucous tumor that forms inside the skull, and this is mucous sarsam. For the most part, a tumor arises in the channels of the brain's substance, and not in its membranes, ventricles or body, because mucus due to the density of the membranes rarely penetrates the [brain] shells and accumulates there [and rarely penetrates] into the substance of the brain due to the stickiness of the latter. Also, pleurisy is mostly

- Percutaneous Coronary Interventions for Multi-Vascular Affection in IHD
One of the debatable problems of modern interventional cardiology is the issue of conducting multi-vascular angioplasty in patients with advanced coronary atherosclerosis. The solution of this issue requires the analysis of many factors: the definition of a multivessel lesion, the possibility and expediency of conducting a complete and incomplete myocardial revascularization, the analysis of long-term results
- Difficulties and complications in obstetric benefits and operations for pelvic presentation of the fetus
When carrying out the first stage of fetal extraction for the pelvic end (extraction to the umbilical ring) when performing tractions and pressure by the obstetrician’s hands are not in the area of the inguinal fold, but fracture and damage to the skin are possible on the thigh, therefore it is necessary to be well-versed in the correctness of fetal inguinal grip . Difficulties (fetal extraction to the lower angle of the blades) can be
- Percutaneous coronary interventions for single-vessel lesion in ischemic heart disease and single discrete stenoses
Since the first coronary angioplasty has been performed, the main coronary angiographic indications for this intervention have been determined. Single lethal proximal hemodynamically significant discrete non-calcified stenosis in patients with preserved LV function is referred to as damage suitable for balloon angioplasty. Such lesions, according to modern research, and
