OBJECTIVE Computerized tools may be useful in speeding up and facilitating the laborious task of coding patient information. This paper describes a method of objectively evaluating their efficiency. DESIGN 38 study subjects were randomly assigned to a manual coding group or an automated coding group, with stratification according to two variables (used to(More)
Fifteen patients with ruptured intracranial aneurysm have been operated before undergoing post surgery xenon inhalation for cerebral blood flow valuation: first measurement has been performed as CBF reference; 2nd measurement has been done after 0.1 mg.kg-1 I.V. bolus of nicardipine; sides effects are mainly due to BP fall 2/15 and some consequent(More)
