OBJECTIVE To identify and evaluate factors associated with delayed recognition of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) in the emergency department (ED). BACKGROUND Delayed recognition of pulmonary TB in ED may precipitate mortality and morbidity. METHODS Medical records of newly diagnosed TB patients admitted to four hospitals in Taiwan were retrospectively(More)
As scaling down MOSFET devices degrade device performance in term of leakage current and short channel effects. To overcome the problem a newer device Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) MOSFET has been introduced. The Fully Depleted (FD) SOI MOSFETs also suffer from short channel effects (SCE) in the sub 65 nm regime due to reduction in threshold voltage. Several
Tumor cells transduced with herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase gene has been intensively applied to the field of positron emission tomography via imaging of its substrate. As a pilot synthesis approach, a facial preparation of 5-[125I]iodoarabinosyl uridine starting from commercial available uridine is reported herein. Interestingly, the tin group in(More)
The aim of this paper is to illustrate the N2 plasma treatment for high-κ ZrO2 gate dielectric stack (30 nm) with indium-gallium-zinc-oxide (IGZO) thin-film transistors (TFTs). Experimental results reveal that a suitable incorporation of nitrogen atoms could enhance the device performance by eliminating the oxygen vacancies and provide an amorphous surface(More)

OBJECTIVES The objective of the study is to examine the epidemiologic data of closed malpractice medical claims against emergency departments (EDs) in Taiwanese civil courts and to identify high-risk diseases. METHODS We conducted a retrospective study and reviewed the verdicts from the national database of the Taiwan judicial system that pertained to(More)
