From June 1995 to May 1998, 30 patients > or = 60(More)

The objective was to describe the epidemiologic, clinical, bacteriologic and therapeutic features of seven infants who developed sternal wound and mediastinal infections following palliation and/or repair procedures for congenital heart disease. A retrospective chart review was used. All infants with sternal wound and mediastinal infections were < 30 days(More)
Increasingly, PBPC instead of BM are used for autologous transplantation. Limited data exist on the economic effects of this change. Using a resource-based utilization model we prospectively determined the costs of 48 autologous transplants (eight BM, 17 BM + PBPC, 23 PBPC), isolating the post-reinfusion period (day 0 to discharge) to better determine the(More)
This paper describes and evaluates TransitBuilder, a gamified pedagogical tool for teaching users about the resources required to operate a robust mass transit network in an urban environment. The project is implemented as a web application to maximize accessibility, and consists of a Node.js server and a Leaflet-based client interface. This project(More)
