Till 2008 remuneration system based on the unified tariff scale was officially implemented for the public sector of the Russian economy. New remuneration system (NRS) is intended to differentiate wages more clearly, bring it into compliance with output of labour input, eliminate the disproportion in the structure of employment, which are common for public sector. In this work was made an effort to estimate results of the remuneration reform with the example of medical institutions of three regions, which sequentially introduced NRS in 2008-2009. The estimates based on the Monitoring of healthcare economic problems microdata reveal the increase of wages and salaries within institutions that adopted NRS.

The ECG features analysis in a patient born in 1946 led to repeated statement of misdiagnosis, particularly of myocardial infarction. About 2,500 patients’s ECGshave been analyzed for the three-year period of the patient’s observation. A Fourier analysis of the spectra of the ECGs of the patient 2506 allowed to assume that there exists an additional leading center in his myocardium, with a variable start phase of the myocardium relative to the phase of the fundamental frequency of contractions of the myocardium. Experimental confirmation of this hypothesis is in particular; found in the patient jump-like transition from synchronous phase daily changes in the function dynamics of the P wave width and the PQ segment to the antiphase ones, which reflects the change in the conditions for triggering the process of myocardial contraction. As a result, the coupling of the two leading frequencies of the myocardium, with a variable phase shift of the triggering, can be expressed both in the extra systoles appearance as well as in unusual cardio cycles not coinciding in the form and phase of cardio cycles of a single ECG. Cluster analysis of the entire set of collected patient’s ECGs in the similarity of their forms revealed 18 separate clusters of similarity. While cluster analysis of the ECG samples in other 4857 patients in most cases led to the identification of only one cluster characteristic for a certain patient’s ECG form. Mathematical modeling of the proposed hypothesis about the presence of more than one leading center of myocardial triggering which resulted in getting model patterns of split ECGs, qualitatively corresponding to the split forms of ECGs observed in the studied patient, confirmed its validity.
It is necessary not only to develop information and communication infrastructures and algorithms for distributed and cloud processing of data coming from all kinds of sensors and sensors, but also to design new materials that enable the production of safe, effective and accessible to the general public test systems when creating digital health saving systems as part of the development of modern electronic medical monitoring technologies. An analysis of the market for consumables intended for use in rapid diagnostic devices shows that disposable test strips on a flexible polymer base with high biological resistance to the effects of blood components are most in demand. It has been shown that surface modification of polyethylene by fluorination, sulfonation and plasmification methods provides a significant reduction in platelet adhesion to processed polymer films. It was also suggested that the surface energy of the modified material has a determining effect on its hemocompatibility.This work is devoted to the formation of an analytical model of the surface morphology of fluorinated polyethylene, as well as a quantitative analysis of the structural and functional relationships between the parameters of the morphological model and the resistance of the material to platelet adhesion. The widespread use of the discussed approach to increasing the thromboresistance of polymeric materials will increase the reliability of glycemic analyzes performed by patients on their own using portable express diagnostic systems (glucometers).
Cell lines represent convenient models to elucidate specific causes of multigenetic and pluricausal diseases, to test breakthrough regenerative technologies. Most commonly used cell lines surpass diploid cells in their accessibility for delivery of large DNA molecules and genome editing, but the main obstacles for obtaining cell models with knockout-targeted protein from aneuploid cells are multiple allele copies and karyotype/phenotype heterogeneity. In the study, we report an original approach to CRISPR-/Cas9-mediated genome modification of aneuploid cell cultures to create functional cell models, achieving highly efficient targeted protein knockout and avoiding "clonal effect" (for the first time to our knowledge
The idea of forced external synchronization of the heart dynamics by the canonical FPU spectrum with a purpose to lower the rate of its desynchronization in some pathological cases has been hypothesized by the authors. It was concluded that a heart being a multi resonant distributed dynamic ion containing system may be resonantly influenced by applying to it the canonical FPU electromagnetic spectrum, which can supposedly decrease the rate of desynchronization in the ECG Fourier spectrum for example in case of arrhythmia. The complex FPU recurrences found in the deep-water dynamics studies were compared with real ECG Fourier images in a sequence of time periods. For choosing the appropriate form of the external FPU canonical spectrum, the two different forms of the ECG Fourier spectra were studied: a rectangular pulse spectrum and exponential pulse spectrum. The two functions were taken to form the external synchronizing canonical FPU recurrence spectrum and were put into the right part of the equations of the previously developed mathematical model as perturbing functions. The computer study of the model simulating arrhythmia with a synchronizing perturbing part in a form of the canonical FPU recurrence spectrum changed the solutions of the model to the forms characteristic for normally functioning heart. Thus, the hypothesis has been confirmed,
The article is devoted to the study of the authoritarianism prevalent in the mass consciousness of Russians. The article describes a new approach to the consideration of the authoritarian syndrome as the effects of the cultural trauma as a result of political and socio-cultural transformation of society. The article shows the dynamics of the symptoms of the authoritarianism, which appear in the mass consciousness of Russians from 1993 to 2011. This paper proposes a package of measures aimed at reducing the level of the authoritarianism in Russian society.
This work looks at a model of spatial election competition with two candidates who can spend effort in order to increase their popularity through advertisement. It is shown that under certain condition the political programs of the candidates will be different. The work derives the comparative statics of equilibrium policy platform and campaign spending with respect the distribution of voter policy preferences and the proportionality of the electoral system. In particular, it is whown that the equilibrium does not exist if the policy preferences are distributed over too narrow an interval.
The article examines "regulatory requirements" as a subject of state control over business in Russia. The author deliberately does not use the term "the rule of law". The article states that a set of requirements for business is wider than the legislative regulation.
First, the article analyzes the regulatory nature of the requirements, especially in the technical field. The requirements are considered in relation to the rule of law. The article explores approaches to the definition of regulatory requirements in Russian legal science. The author analyzes legislation definitions for a set of requirements for business. The author concludes that regulatory requirements are not always identical to the rule of law. Regulatory requirements are a set of obligatory requirements for entrepreneurs’ economic activity. Validation failure leads to negative consequences.
Second, the article analyzes the problems of the regulatory requirements in practice. Lack of information about the requirements, their irrelevance and inconsistency are problems of the regulatory requirements in Russia.
Many requirements regulating economic activity are not compatible with the current development level of science and technology. The problems are analyzed on the basis of the Russian judicial practice and annual monitoring reports by Higher School of Economics.
Finally, the author provides an approach to the possible solution of the regulatory requirements’ problem. The author proposes to create a nationwide Internet portal about regulatory requirements. The portal should contain full information about all regulatory requirements. The author recommends extending moratorium on the use of the requirements adopted by the bodies and organizations of the former USSR government.
