BACKGROUND Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection predisposes to progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML). Here, we describe the incidence, presentation, and prognosis of PML in HIV-1-infected patients during the period before highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) (1995-1996) and during the early HAART (1997-1999) and late HAART(More)
In this paper, we present an architecture, called "ComMentor", which provides a platform for third−party providers of lightweight super−structures to material provided by conventional content providers. It enables people to share structured in−place annotations about arbitrary on−line documents. The system is part of a general "virtual document"(More)
INTRODUCTION Illness and hospitalisation, even of short duration, pose separate risks for permanently reduced functional performance in elderly medical patients. Functional assessment in the acute pathway will ensure early detection of declining performance and form the basis for mobilisation during hospitalisation and subsequent rehabilitation. For optimal(More)
INTRODUCTION Transferring a patient from one health-care sector to another implies a risk of medication errors. It is of interest to evaluate whether a specialist in clinical pharmacy is beneficial for the patients in the emergency departments (ED). The aim of the present study was to report the incidence, categories and seriousness of medication problems(More)
Systematic process triage is a relatively unknown concept in Denmark. Currently there are no national recommendations regarding triage models for use in the emergency department (ED). Four medium-sized EDs from different regions across the country cooperated in a joint venture to develop a new triage model, Danish Emergency Process Triage (DEPT). DEPT is(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of the study was to assess: 1) the degree of osteoporosis preventative therapy initiated by general practitioners (GP) after hospitalisation for a hip fracture; 2) the GPs' opinion of osteoporosis preventative therapy, and their opinion on whether it should be initiated by the hospital or the GP; 3) the need for a reference programme.(More)
We describe the interaction design for a set of facilities that enable users of an augmented version of the NCSA Mosaic browser to read, write, and filter for annotations on arbitrary segments of WorldWide Web documents, and share them with any other such user. INTRODUCTION Shared annotations associated with networked information resources allow people to(More)
BACKGROUND Anaemia is a major complication of Plasmodium falciparum malaria among small children in sub-Saharan Africa. We studied the performance of the Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) recommended assessment of no/some/severe pallor as predictor of anaemia in health surveys at community level and in clinical practice in an out patient(More)
BACKGROUND Anaemia among small children in tropical Africa is common and often caused by infection with Plasmodium falciparum. The diagnosis of anaemia is difficult without a laboratory estimation of haemoglobin. The aim of this study was to examine if clinical findings related to malaria and anaemia would help to detect moderate and/or severe anaemia in(More)
