STUDY OBJECTIVES Sleep quality commonly diminishes with age, and, further, aging men often exhibit a wider range of sleep pathologies than women. We used a freely available, web-based discovery technique (Semantic MEDLINE) supported by semantic relationships to automatically extract information from MEDLINE titles and abstracts. DESIGN We assumed that(More)
Applying the principles of literature-based discovery (LBD), we elucidate the paradox that obesity is beneficial in critical care despite contributing to disease generally. Our approach enhances a previous extension to LBD, called "discovery browsing," and is implemented using Semantic MEDLINE, which summarizes the results of a PubMed search into an(More)
We present an extension to literature-based discovery that goes beyond making discoveries to a principled way of navigating through selected aspects of some biomedical domain. The method is a type of "discovery browsing" that guides the user through the research literature on a specified phenomenon. Poorly understood relationships may be explored through(More)
Automatic summarization has been proposed to help manage the results of biomedical information retrieval systems. Semantic MEDLINE, for example, summarizes semantic predications representing assertions in MEDLINE citations. Results are presented as a graph which maintains links to the original citations. Graphs summarizing more than 500 citations are hard(More)
An extensive literature exists regarding the potential effect of sleep loss on human performance and the recent regulatory changes that now limit the duty hours of resident-physicians. Recent studies and reviews emphasize the effects of sleepiness on medical errors of commission and to a lesser extent omission. This review focuses on an emerging literature(More)
This report describes experiences, subsequent action, and policy recommendations regarding sleep disorders assessment of veterans in relation to a commercial driver medical examiner referral. A series of 6 veterans were seen in our sleep clinic, presenting with an order from a commercial driver medical examiner (CDME) for polysomnography and/or Multiple(More)
The transmission rates of telecommunication systems based on fiber-optic standards such as the Synchronous Optical Network (SONET) and Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) are at multiples of 51.84 Mbits/s. A significant amount of optical telecommunications network equipment operates at three, twelve, or forty-eight times this fundamental rate. Currently,(More)
