Business Segment

A division or subset of a business' operations, especially in large corporations. For a division to be considered a segment, it must directly earn revenue for the company. For example, a heavily diversified corporation may have one segment dedicated to telecommunications, another to manufacturing, and a third to energy. It is also known simply as a segment. Internally, each segment's expenses and revenues are accounted for separately.

segment

An identifiable part of a business organization. For example, a large corporation might have a number of segments including industrial, aerospace, and leisure products. Also called business segment.

The main changes induced by hypocalcaemia are QT interval prolongation, diffuse negative T waves and ST segment elevation.
Among 198 patients of acute inferior wall MI, ECG performed at the time of hospitalization showed elevated ST segments in lead V4R in 96 patients (48.
We also studied the extent of the ST depression across the ECG leads during the test, which showed that extensive CAD is more likely to be present in patients who show substantial ST segment changes when it can be seen on multiple leads.

Diastolic hypotension has been observed in children who receive continuous albuterol nebulization, and case reports have suggested that myocardial injury can result from undergoing continuous albuterol nebulization as evidenced by increases in creatine kinase MB fraction (CKMB) or EKG ST segment changes.

Current guidelines recommend that if an in-hospital conservative approach or cardiac catheterization and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with a low risk for bleeding are planned, clopidogrel is a Class I recommendation and it should be given as soon as possible to all patients with high-risk ST segment depression or dynamic T-wave inversion in the absence of contraindications.
1) In this review, ST segment elevation and Q waves were found to be equally reliable predictors of MI (positive likelihood ratio [LR+] = 22).
The Infinity Telemetry System utilizes TruST[TM], a patented algorithm that provides real-time, 12-lead monitoring and ST segment analysis using only a 6-wire lead set.
