"The unique prospect of owning an island on The World brings its own set of challenges, and we believe we have created something that will deal with all the considerations that island owners have to deal with when it comes to developing their island; the 'Ome
provides the infrastructure for the entire island, without the need to break ground," he said at the time when the designs were launched in 2011.
And one of the men behind the lavish mode of transport says there is already some interest in the futuristic floating homes, but declined to reveal any further details or confirm how much a dream Ome
would cost you.
The first 'Ome
will be available in a 32m diameter form, comprising an upper and lower deck configuration.
After parental informed consent was obtained, children aged 2-12 years with a history of chronic OME
who had met the indications for tympanostomy tube placement were recruited in the study.
Children diagnosed with an endocrine or metabolic disease, who did not have any otorhinolaryngologic symptoms were compared to healthy children in the control group for presence of OME
. The study was conducted from April to October 2015 due to the circulation of respiratory viruses during winter months.
Type B pattern on tympanometry suggestive of little or no change in compliance of tympanic membrane and characteristic of OME
was observed in 88 patients in left ear and 98 patients in right ear.
Otitis media with effusion (OME
) is defined as fluid in the middle ear and, sometimes, the mastoid air cell system without signs or symptoms of ear infection.1 Symptoms usually involve hearing loss or aural fullness but typically do not involve pain or fever.
In this study, the teachers used the OME
in a robotics class to analyze learning process with real-time data that was generated while the students were working with the robotics environment.
Risk factors for children include a family history of OME
, bottle-feeding, day care attendance, exposure to tobacco smoke, and a personal history of allergies.
In humans, a randomized, controlled study by Combs showed that the leukotriene receptor antagonist montelukast in combination with amoxicillin was significantly more efficacious in clearing persistent OME
than was amoxicillin and placebo (clearance rates: 58 and 16%, respectively).
The mill uses OME
to measure the amount of time each machine is producing salable product, subtracting unplanned downtime.
About 90% of acute otitis media (AOM) cases have a bulging tympanic membrane, and about 90% of otitis media with effusion (OME
) cases have a retracted or sometimes neutrally positioned membrane.
