(AM-436: dp. 620; 1. 172'; b. 36'; dr. 10'; s. 16 k.;
cpl. 74; a. 1 40 mm.; cl. Agile)
The second Energy (AM-436) was launched 13 February 1953 by J. M. Martinac Shipbuilding Co., Tacoma, Wash.; sponsored by Mrs. A. Baughman, and commissioned 16 July 1954, Lieutenant Commander F. H. Sonntag in command. She was reclassified MSO-436, 7 February 1955.
Energy arrived at Long Beach, her home port, 3 August 1954, and began training along the west coast with the ships of her division. On 4 January 1956, she sailed for her first tour of duty in the western Pacific, taking part in a large-scale exercise off Iwo Jima, and training with ships of the Republic of Korea and China. Returning to her home port 15 June, she cruised along the west coast during the next year, conducting sonar tests and serving as a schoolship for officers of the Thailand navy.
During her second deployment to the Far East, from 2 June 1958 to 6 January 1959, Energy stood by at Taiwan during the crisis brought on by renewed Communist shelling of Quemoy and Matsu, and again exercised with Chinese minesweepers. Specialized mine warfare exercises and general training with the fleet, along with visits to various west ports, were conducted through the summer of 1960. For the remainder of the year Energy served with the 7th Fleet in Far East waters.

West Coast operations
Energy arrived at Long Beach, California, her home port, 3 August 1954, and began training along the U.S. West Coast with the ships of her division. On 4 January 1956, she sailed for her first tour of duty in the western Pacific Ocean, taking part in a large-scale exercise off Iwo Jima, and training with ships of the Republic of Korea and the Republic of China. Returning to her home port 15 June, she cruised along the west coast during the next year, conducting sonar tests and serving as a schoolship for officers of the Thailand Navy.
1995 Pontiac Firebird
Other than the above changes, the 1995 Firebirds were extremely similar to the 1994 models, which themselves were basically indistinguishable from the 1993 cars. But Pontiac was betting that the public would realize just how good the still relatively new fourth-generation Firebirds were and decided to essentially leave them alone. And it was a good bet.
1995 posted the highest sales of the fourth-generation so far, and in fact the production totals would go on to be the highest of any other year before the car was discontinued in 2002. During the production year, 50,986 Firebirds were produced. Unfortunately this number would drop the following year and production would proceed to hover around the 30,000 mark for most of the rest of the of the car’s career.
But things were looking up in 1995. Sales were good, and the new V6 engine was a sought after options for cars produced mid-way though the year. The 3.8 litre OHV 3800 V6 produced 200 horsepower. Needless to say, the standard V6 engine, a 3.4 litre motor rated at 160 horsepower was no longer relevant and would be discontinued for 1996.
Powering the Formula and Trans Am models once again was the powerful 5.7 litre V8 rated at 275 horsepower. These cars were some of the most powerful and best built cars in the history of the Firebird.
ASR, or Acceleration Slip Regulation, was added as the traction control option in 1995. Formula and Trans Am models in 1994 and 1995 also had the option of adding a “Transmission Perform” button, which provided quicker and firmer shifts. Other than the new steering wheel, the interior of the car also was the same as it had been in 1994.
As had been the case since the introduction of the third-generation cars in 1993, there were only three Firebird models available: base, Formula and Trans Am.
Despite low sales numbers in 1993, the base model was quickly emerging as the most popular Firebird. With total production at 29,156, the base model outsold the other two models combined.
Equipped with the V8 engine standard, the Formula was designed for drivers who wanted the performance of the small block V8 without the added expense of the extras the Trans Am provided. However, the model would continuously be the lowest selling Firebird model, and 8,485 were produced in 1995. This number would be cut by more than half the following year.
Despite not selling as much as the base model, the Trans Am was continuing to grow in popularity. Total production was up to 13,345, compared to 10,672 the year before. However, this number also would drop in 1996.
Pony Car Competition
While it was great that both the GM pony cars saw production increases in 1995 (122,844 Camaros were built), the Mustang did too. The fourth-generation Mustang had been introduced in 1994, and sales rose in 1995 as the new model that proved to be particularly popular continued to catch on with the public.
In addition to this pony car competition, Firebird was facing competition from import cars and a car-buying climate that just wasn’t as friendly to domestic sports cars as it had once been. Still, it would be fun to watch the Firebird, Camaro and Mustang compete as pony cars over the next few years, just like they had in the heyday of the class.
Clinical Considerations and Recommendations
Is there a role for routine ultrasound screening of the cervix? Serial ultrasound assessments of the cervix in low-risk women have demonstrated low sensitivity and low positive-predictive values, meaning ultrasonography lacks enough discriminatory power to recommend routine use.
What is the role of ultrasonography in evaluating women who have had a previous pregnancy loss? Study results suggest that serial transvaginal ultrasound may be considered in women with a history of second- or early third-trimester deliveries. Because the upper portion of the cervix is not easily distinguished from the lower uterine segment in early pregnancy, these assessments should not begin before 16 to 20 weeks of gestation. According to ACOG, there is no reason to perform ultrasound screening for cervical insufficiency in women with a history of first-trimester pregnancy losses.
In whom is a cerclage indicated? In the past, patient selection for elective cerclage has been based on congenital or acquired visible defects in the ectocervix or classic features of cervical incompetence, which include history of two or more second-trimester pregnancy losses (excluding those resulting from preterm labor or abruption) history of losing each pregnancy at an earlier gestational age history of painless cervical dilation of up to 4 to 6 cm absence of clinical findings consistent with placental abruption and history of cervical trauma caused by cone biopsy, intrapartum cervical lacerations, and excessive, forced cervical dilation during pregnancy termination.
Based on limited clinical information, elective cerclage for historical factors generally should be confined to patients with three or more otherwise unexplained second-trimester pregnancy losses or preterm deliveries. Cerclage should be performed at 13 to 16 weeks of gestation after ultrasound evaluation has demonstrated the presence of a live fetus with no apparent anomalies.
Urgent, or therapeutic, cerclage often is recommended for women who have ultrasonographic changes consistent with a short cervix or evidence of funneling. Management of this group remains speculative because of the limited number of well-designed randomized trials. The decision to proceed with cerclage should be made with caution.
In the past, women who present with advanced cervical dilation in the absence of labor and abruption have been candidates for emergency cerclage. No randomized trials have been done in this area, and retrospective studies are limited by selection bias, inadequate patient numbers, and inconsistent selection criteria.
In the second trimester, how should a short cervix be treated? According to ACOG, if transvaginal ultrasonography before 16 to 20 weeks of gestation identifies a short cervix, the examination should be repeated because of the inability to adequately distinguish the cervix from the lower uterine segment in early pregnancy. Identification of a short cervix at or after 20 weeks of gestation should prompt assessment of the fetus for anomalies, uterine activity to rule out preterm labor, and maternal factors to rule out chorioamnionitis. Regular evaluations may be performed (particularly in patients with pelvic pressure, backache, or increased mucoid discharge) every few days to avoid missing rapid changes in cervical dilation or until the trend in cervical length can be characterized.
In patients with a history of fewer than three second-trimester pregnancy losses, urgent cerclage is not supported by evidence-based studies, and further transvaginal ultrasound surveillance may be the more judicious approach. Management for cervical shortening or funneling is unclear, and the decision to proceed with urgent cerclage should be made with caution. Cervical change noted before fetal viability is a better indication for cerclage than if it is identified after fetal viability has been achieved. Emergency cerclage may be considered in women if clinical chorioamnionitis or signs of labor are not present.
In the third trimester, how should a short cervix be treated? If the patient's cervical length is below the 10th percentile (25 mm) for gestational age at or after fetal viability, evaluation should include ultrasound assessment of fetal anatomy to exclude anomalies, tocodynamometry to detect the presence of uterine contractions, and assessment of maternal factors to exclude chorioamnionitis. If the patient is in labor, tocolytic therapy may delay delivery long enough to promote fetal lung maturation with maternal glucocorticoid therapy. The presence of chorioamnionitis is grounds for immediate delivery and the use of broad-spectrum antibiotics. If labor or chorioamnionitis is not present, modification of activity, pelvic rest, tobacco cessation, and expectant management may be considered. Cerclage in the treatment of women with cervical insufficiency after determining fetal viability has not been adequately assessed.
Is there a role for scheduled early or first-trimester cerclage in patients with a suspicious clinical history? The evidence-based risk-benefit ratio does not support first-trimester cerclage, even with transabdominal procedures.
Is cerclage placement associated with an increase in morbidity? Suture displacement, rupture of membranes, and chorioamnionitis are the most common complications associated with cerclage placement, and incidence varies widely in relation to the timing and indications for the cerclage. Urgent and emergency cerclages are associated with a higher incidence of morbidity as a result of cervical shortening and exposure of the fetal membranes to the vaginal ecosystem.
Transabdominal cerclage can be complicated by rupture of membranes and chorioamnionitis. It carries the added risk of intraoperative hemorrhage from the uterine veins when the cerclage band is tunneled between the bifurcation of the uterine artery, as well as the known risks associated with laparotomy. Life-threatening complications of uterine rupture and maternal septicemia are extremely rare but have been reported with all types of cerclage.
Should perioperative antibiotics and tocolytics be used in association with cerclage placement? Studies using perioperative antibiotics have been small, nonrandomized, and inconclusive. The use of unnecessary antibiotics may lead to the development of resistant strains of bacteria and other morbidity for the patient and her fetus. No randomized studies have shown that use of tocolytic therapy after cerclage is effective. The lack of clear benefit for these adjunctive treatments suggests that these drugs should be used with caution.
Does a patient who was exposed to diethylstilbestrol require cerclage? To date, no definitive epidemiologic studies have proved that cervical insufficiency is more frequent in women exposed to diethylstilbestrol than in comparable control subjects. There are no randomized trials of cerclage in these patients. A woman who has been exposed may be evaluated using the same criteria as a nonexposed patient.
When is removal of cerclage indicated in a patient with preterm labor or preterm rupture of membranes? Because the available studies are small and nonrandomized, the optimal timing of cerclage removal is unclear, according to ACOG.
