BACKGROUND Medical errors occur following handoff-related miscommunication. Data regarding the effect on patient-centered outcomes, specifically mortality, are lacking. Our objective was to investigate handoff-related mortality and the effect of duty-hour regulations. METHODS Retrospective cohort study of adult medical patients at a public,(More)
Currently, no reliable noninvasive methods exist for monitoring the severity of in vivo cyanide (CN) toxicity, treatment, and resulting physiological changes. We developed a broadband diffuse optical spectroscopy (DOS) system to measure bulk tissue absorption and scattering. DOS was used to optically monitor CN toxicity and treatment with sodium nitrite(More)
RATIONALE To evaluate factors associated with palliative care consultation (PCC) in an urban public hospital. METHODS A retrospective chart review of patients who died on inpatient medical services. RESULTS Patients with a PCC were more likely to have a "do not resuscitate" (DNR) order at the time of death (p<0.001) and had a decreased likelihood of(More)
This paper implements an efficient networking management for a protocol processor in a network terminal. The protocol processor is to handle high-speed data streams, more than 10 Gb/s, in a network terminal. We propose an algorithm, which contributes to fairness and full utilization of the packet buffer memory. In our experimental results, the proposed(More)
