"It is very rare to perform collision-avoidance manoeuvres with active satellites.
Now, for the first time ever, the ESA has been forced to manoeuvre one of its satellites out of the way of a mega constellation to avoid a collision.
The manoeuvre was performed successfully today (September 1) beginning at 1821 hrs IST as planned, using the onboard propulsion system.
[Meta-analysis on the efficacy of Epley's manoeuvre in benign paroxysmal positional vertigo].
'If someone is choking you have do the Heimlich manoeuvre first' Starting with this manoeuvre is no longer advised.
As I understand it, the United States Marine Corps was first to embrace the concept of "manoeuvre warfare." As such, it was not meant to be synonymous with movement, although the skilful movement of mechanized forces was fundamental in the application of the doctrine back in the day.
Because this grip is somewhat insecure, the resultant tractive force is limited and I consider this manoeuvre to be the most effective and least traumatic method of relieving moderate to severe obstruction.
Objective: To compare the efficacy of Epley manoeuvre and Semont manoeuvre in the management of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.

We had critically read the paper by Marcus et al (2002), who randomised 20 anaesthetised children under two years of age to receive either a timed recruitment manoeuvre (30 cm[H.sub.2]O for 10 seconds using 33% oxygen in nitrous oxide), or three minutes of 100% inspired oxygen at the same ventilatory parameters The group receiving 100% inspired oxygen experienced a 9% decrease in dynamic compliance at three minutes, whilst the recruitment manoeuvre (33% oxygen) produced a 30% increase in dynamic compliance at one minute after the procedure.
Truck plazas require adequate space to allow big rigs to manoeuvre for fuelling and parking.
