Earlier, when tabling the bill for the second reading, Chong said the bill was also aimed at raising the tribunal's authority over the threshold value of the award from RM25,000 to the maximum of RM50,000.
The ability of SVV to predict fluid responsiveness was tested by calculating the area under the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve for an increase in stroke volume index of ≥10% after volume loading, and the optimal threshold value of SVV was calculated.
The objective of this study was to develop an ecological niche model (ENM) with an appropriate threshold value that could best identify potential range expansion of the invasive eastern gray squirrel, Sciurus carolinensis (EGS) within California and in the future, project potential areas of overlap with congeners.
In the University of Eastern Finland study, children whose serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels exceeded 80 nmol/l had lower plasma total and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels than children whose serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels were below 50 nmol/l, which is often regarded as a threshold value for vitamin D sufficiency.
Before applying the LOF algorithm, it is necessary to specify two parameters: the number of closest neighbours k and the threshold value, above which it is considered that the record is outlier.
The researchers found that Masimo noninvasive and continuous PVi, at a threshold value of greater than14%, provided 95% sensitivity and 81.2% specificity (pless than0.001, AUC = 0.939 (0.857-0.982)), which was statistically significant.
Here, we use the second-ranked year value as our main threshold value since, for GISTEMP, 2016 was the single year that exceeded the second-ranked extreme, and so in determining the probability of a year like 2016, we explore the probability of anomaly exceeding the previous record.
We set the [T.sub.d3] threshold value as 20 which is about twice larger than the maximum access rate of the long-tail region.
The prevalence of subclinical endometritis in the beef cows between 22 and 28 days postpartum using a threshold value of [greater than or equal to]8 % by cytobrush method was 12.5%, which is considered low.
Employees receive a report after the checkup that includes a warning if test values are above a threshold value. The threshold values are set by employers--many use a 110 mg/dl threshold for FBS, the minimum value to be considered "borderline type" (values below 110 are "normal type" and values above 126 are "diabetic type").
