The 21st Century Law Firm
The age old law business pattern of small firms are getting discarded, the approach to law business is undergoing a sea change.
The small law firms and large law organizations are being stressed in the changing scenario and the old method of their procedures are unable to produce the desired ostentatious results which certainly end up in anxiety and worry.
The clear cut evidence of the 21st Century Law Firm is the emerging number of small law firms being launched which has totally abandoned the age old modus operandi. The new firms have innovative ideas pertaining to the operation of a law firm in the 21st century. They are of the opinion that a business in the 21st century should operate with novel ideas and not with the same system carried over from the 19th century.
The difference is so unique in the approaches and the procedure so versatile, they are well equipped to combat any challenges.
Consultants are of the opinion that in law firms you seldom find the business process, they say that when income is directly related to time spent, then why to compromise on profits. The new generation firms try to eliminate unwanted costs which take a major share from their profits. So they invest in technology in areas demanded, get rid of unwanted expenditures and standardize their procedures. They seek the help of project management to direct the work schedule as per the systems and budget. These 21st century law firms find ways to carry out their job much faster with less expenditure. Their approach is really professional and they run the business with better planning on costs.
Even the small firms are very much capable and they assign people of right caliber to take task suiting their capacity. In the case of traditional law firms the working pattern was very much different; partners will do the job of an associate and associates will carry out jobs designated to students and this process goes all the way. This method lacks professionalism.
The 21st century law firms are very much accurate in their calculations, a modern law firms achieve in many different ways. They will assess whether they require an expensive office space in the heart of the city to get prospective clients, do they really need more lawyers than they actually need and do they require a number of secretaries and administrative assistants.
In the past law firms of the traditional pattern seldom deviated from their age old habits, where the lawyers and the staff came to work by assembling in a centralized office. In the case of a 21st century law firm the staff seldom operates from the same office premises which rather save a lot of time. Clerks and the administrative assistants work from their homes over the internet, even the lawyers follow the same work pattern. Employees are happier this way and they don’t require much office spaces and cabins which in turn makes the profits commendable.
Types of Defibrillators
Defibrillation is a perfect solution for cardiac arrhythmias, ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation. It has a device known as defibrillator which delivers a therapeutic dose with electrical energy to the heart. It depolarizes the mass of the affected heart and ends the arrhythmia.
This allows the normal sinus pace to be restored in the body by the pacemaker. Defibrillators are implanted, external or trans-venous. This depends on the type of devise needed to treat the patient. The devices are mostly implanted in octogenarian patients. it is rare for children to require them and also difficult to implant in them as they are small and growing up which requires great caution.
Since the first defibrillator was demonstrated by Batelli and Prevost in 1899, great changes have been implemented. There are different types of Defibrillators. Manual external Defibrillators have with intrinsic electrocardiogram readers.
Doctors use these readers to diagnose the cardiac condition of the patient. Physicians then decide when to change the gadget depending on proven guidelines. These units require medical knowledge and enough experience. Therefore, they are only available in big hospitals. Some ambulances are privileged to have them provided the required knowledge is available.
Manual internal defibrillators were advanced by Lown and Beck. They are identical to the external defibrillators virtually. However, the internal units have their charge conveyed into the heart using internal paddles. These paddles are directed towards the heart directly.
Manual internal defibrillators are only found in theaters. This is where surgeons open the chest quickly to perform the treatment.
The other type of Defibrillators which is commonly used is the Automated External Version. These units are the simplest to use as they are based on the new computer technology. The computer analyzes the heart and advises the user appropriately when a shock is needed.
These units can be used by any person since they require little or no training at all. The automatic defibrillators are slower compared to the manual units. They take ten to twenty seconds diagnosing the heart pace.
Implantable cardioverter- defibrillator are also referred to as internal cardiac defibrillators. They are special implants which can also act as pacemakers. The monitor the pace of the heart and administer shocks automatically.
They are more perfect in treating life threatening diseases like arrhythmias. Most of the modern defibrillators are capable of distinguishing between ventricular tachycardia with ventricular fibrillation and atrial fibrillation with supraventricular tachycardia. Ventricular fibrillation disease makes the device to be programmed in such a way that it will immediately proceed to unsynchronized shock. Sometimes, patient’s ICD fire inappropriately depleting the defibrillator’s battery life.
This causes anxiety and discomfort to the patient which can trigger the fatal arrhythmias. This is a medical emergency which requires medical experts equipped with ringer magnet which is placed over the depleting device to case life. The magnet incapacitates the shock and allows the pacemaker to remain active. In case the device3 shocks frequently but causes no harm to the patient, the doctors can administer sedation.
