Since the first issue of the APSF Newsletter was printed in 1986, the staff at Nellcor Puritan Bennett located in suburban Kansas City has been responsible for production and printing of this publication. Many people are involved, but specifically in the last year, manager Mr. Terry Pageler has been extremely helpful; Ms. Jennifer Stockstill does the translations and the production preparation with expediency and excellence; and Ms. Lori Hibbs with great devotion prints the Newsletter in the Print Center directed by Ms. Joyce Gray. The consistent high quality of the Newsletter is a tribute to their dedication, effort and skill. Their production of the more than 60,000 copies of each issue merits the great appreciation of all APSF members and other readers.
Readers of the APSF Newsletter as well as the APSF organization as a whole also express heartfelt thanks to the Hewlett-Packard Company and its Clinical Systems Business Unit for their continuing support through the contribution of computer equipment used in the Newsletter production process and in support of the APSF web page on the Internet.
Last, but far from least, the Editor wishes to thank and acknowledge the Newsletter’s Editorial Assistant, Nola Gibson, Ph.D., whose diligent and tireless efforts are central to the editorial and production process and without which this publication would not exist.
