Although dyspnea is a common symptom, there has been only limited investigation of
its prognostic significance among patients referred for cardiac evaluation.
We studied 17,991 patients undergoing myocardial-perfusion single-photon-emission
computed tomography during stress and at rest. Patients were divided into five categories
on the basis of symptoms at presentation (none, nonanginal chest pain, atypical angina,
typical angina, and dyspnea).

Typhlitis Typhlitis (also referred to as necrotizing colitis, neutropenic colitis, necrotizing enteropathy, ileocecal syndrome, and cecitis) is a clinical syndrome of fever and right-lower-quadrant tenderness in an immunosuppressed host. This syndrome is classically seen in neutropenic patients after chemotherapy with cytotoxic drugs.
There is no published evidence and conflicting expert opinion on the treatment of malnourished
patients, and the specification and treatment of at-risk patients (those with diarrhoea, vomiting,
physical illness, weight loss, poor diet), with the majority of experts recommending parenteral
vitamin supplementation during detoxification.
This demo presents Information Extraction from discharge letters in Bulgarian language. The Patient history section is automatically split into episodes (clauses between two temporal markers); then drugs, diagnoses and conditions are recognised within the episodes with accuracy higher than 90%. The temporal markers, which refer to absolute or relative moments of time, are identiﬁed with precision 87% and recall 68%. The direction of time for the episode starting point: backwards or forward (with respect to certain moment orienting the episode) is recognised with precision 74.4%. ...
Sputum examination is a key diagnostic procedure
for patients suspected of having pulmonary TB,
including those for whom bronchoscopy is planned.1,2
In addition, early identification of persons with TB
remains the most effective way of preventing TB
transmission. However, some patients are unable to
produce sputum for examination. In such cases,
sputum induction by aerosol inhalation and/or
gastric aspiration has been preferred.
(BQ) Nearly two decades after the first Drug Eruptions & Reactions Manual was compiled by Dr. Litt, this classic work has been developed and expanded into Litt’s D.E.R.M. Relied upon by dermatologists and medical practitioners internationally for its unparalleled practical focus on adverse effects and cutaneous reactions, this text is the essential quick-reference tool for patient care and drug safety.
Tertiary prevention refers to the treatment of symptomatic disease in an effort
to prevent its progression to disability, or premature death. The overlap with
treatment is self-evident, and perhaps suggests that preventive medicine has gran-
diose territorial ambitions. Be that as it may, there is a legitimate focus on preven-
tion even after disease develops, such as the prevention of early cancer from
metastasizing, or the prevention of coronary disease from inducing a myocardial
infarction or heart failure.
Welcome to the fi rst edition of Handbook of Dermatology: A
Practical Manual, a pocket guide designed for practicing dermatologists,
dermatology residents, medical students, and physicians in other fi elds
who may be interested in dermatology. Written and edited by former
residents and attending physicians in the Division of Dermatology at
Washington University School of Medicine, this book is based on an
in-house resident handbook which has been used by our department for
the past fi ve years.
(BQ) Ebook CURRENT Medical Diagnosis and Treatment 2015 is the 54th edition of this single-source reference for practitio-ners in both hospital and ambulatory settings. The book emphasizes the practical features of clinical diagnosis and patient management in all fields of internal medicine and in specialties of interest to primary care practitioners and to subspecial-ists who provide general car.
The vitamins are a chemically disparate group of compounds whose only common
feature is that they are dietary essentials that are required in small amounts for the
normal functioning of the body and maintenance of metabolic integrity.Metabolically,
they have diverse functions, such as coenzymes, hormones, antioxidants,
mediators of cell signaling, and regulators of cell and tissue growth and differentiation.
Because the field of nutrition is actively evolving and creating major new principles in the care of the
pediatric patient, we have embarked on the third edition of this textbook. The editors continue to support
the premise that a comprehensive text as a reference source in pediatric nutrition is essential for the proper care
of infants and children. As medical care in the twenty-first century is predicated on prevention of disease, the
discipline of pediatric nutrition becomes that much more important.
Stressful life events such as trauma, loss of a loved one,
a diicult relationship or any stressful situation—whether
welcome or unwelcome—oten occur before a depressive
episode. Additional work and home responsibilities, caring
for children and aging parents, abuse, and poverty also may
trigger a depressive episode. Evidence suggests that women
respond diferently than men to these events, making them
more prone to depression.
Asmentioned in the introduction, the information associatedwith an event is
represented by a data structure called a notiﬁcation.We refer to the datamodel
or encoding schema of notiﬁcations as the event notiﬁcation model or simply
event model. Most existing event notiﬁcation services adopt a simple record-
like structure for notiﬁcations, while some more recent frameworks deﬁne an
object-oriented model (e.g., the Java™ Distributed Event Speciﬁcation [Sun
Microsystems 1998] and the CORBA Notiﬁcation Service [Object Management
Our study shows that, in spite of a gradual decrease, the
incidence rates of pulmonary tuberculosis in immigrants
remain high even a decade after immigration. The persistent
high incidence rates are consistent with results of previous
studies (2–5). Our study combines data on all
immigrant patients in whom tuberculosis was detected and
all legal immigrants present in a 5-year period in a low
incidence country, enabling detailed analysis with a long
We did not find a steep decline in incidence rates after
Mobile messaging technology enables users to communicate
in an asynchronous manner, where messages are stored in the
network and delivered to the recipient as soon as the recipient’s
mobile phone can receive it. Once delivered, the message
resides on the users’ mobile phone.
SMS (Short Messaging Service) allows a mobile user to send
and receive a text message of up to 160 characters and across
virtually any operator network. This service is also referred to
as “text messaging” or “texting”. All mobile phones shipped
over the past few years support SMS.
