A computerized method for measuring STIs u...Heart Beat; Data Processing; Medicine1982-03
12 A computer-based model for providing empiric antibiotic therapy in a hospital.A new model for computer-based medical decision making, called QID for Quick Infectious Disease, is described. It is based on the principles of decision analysis, using probabilities and utilities. In this study, QID was applied to the problem of recognition and empiric treatment of hospital-acquire...Antibiotics; Hospital Acquired Infections1999-12
13 A Computerized approach to dietary analysis.Adequate nutrition in world health and community medicine has been and will continue to be a subject of great humanitarian concern. Malnutrition has been known to occur in hospitals with complications varying from interference with wound healing to an increased susceptibility to infection. In part...Renal Dialysis; Nutrition1978-12
14 A Computerized data base resource for dermatoglyphics research.The study of the ridged skin on the plantar and palmar surfaces of man is termed "dermatoglyphics" and has been the subject of various scientific investigations particularly in medicine and human genetics. Since the dermal configurations are completely determined by the fourth moth of gestation and...Medicine; Data Processing; Dematoglyphics; Genetics1980-03
15 A Computerized radiology ordering/reporting system based on most likely diagnoses.This descriptive study (1) identified and compared the stress levels and coping mechanisms of 24 parents of pediatric heart transplant patients and pediatric patients with chronic heart disease and, (2) identified ways health care providers can assist these parents in the coping process. Both groups...Medicine; Data Processing; Radiology, Medical1980-03
16 A correlation of the bacterial flora of the nasopharynx and the urinary tract to "Bacterial Allergy."Twelve cases of clinically diagnosed "bacterial allergy" were studied to determine the bacterial flora of the nasopharynx and of the urinary tract.
