During infancy and childhood, clinical signs of infection and conventional laboratory markers are not specific in the early phase of disease [1]. The availability of a parameter that more rapidly identifies children suspected to have bacterial sepsis before microbiological results are available would minimize unnecessary treatments and hospitalization.(More)
ceftazidime, piperacillin/tazobactam, trimethoprimsulfamethoxazole, imipenem, meropenem, ciprofloxacin and ofloxacin and was susceptible to gentamicin, tobramycin, amikacin and ceftizoxime. One dose of ceftriaxone had been administered in the pediatrician’s office followed by parenteral azithromycin and cefuroxime. Within 2 days, the child became afebrile,(More)
In this study, 90 episodes of pneumococcal bacteremia that occurred over an 8-year period in two hospitals in Barcelona were analyzed retrospectively to determine the clinical and bacteriological characteristics of pneumococcal bacteremia, the risk factors for antibiotic resistance, the outcome, and the vaccine coverage. The mean age of the patients was 3.1(More)
This article has come about as a result of joint work between the Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED, Spain) and the Universidade Aberta (Portugal), pioneering universities in the development of MOOC platforms with pedagogical approximations different from the xMOOC and cMOOC models. The work has been centred on the analysis of the degree(More)
From January 1988 to October 1992, the primary resistance to first-line antituberculous drugs in 501 tuberculous patients was evaluated prospectively. Three-hundred and seventeen patients were HIV-negative and 184 were HIV-positive; these patients had several different clinical forms of tuberculosis. Moreover, the acquired resistance to antituberculous(More)
Access to MOOC platforms has barriers: there is a lack of accessibility to educational resources, communications tools and even the personalisation of user interfaces. Added to this are difficulties such as the need to develop specific digital or even social skills for those students with functional diversity. Therefore, a vision of the different strategies(More)
At present there are no applications which include accessibility revisions for Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), neither in the context of MOOCs provider institutions nor from the point of view of any Open Educational Resource (OER) initiative. In this paper an approximation to this problem is presented, in the form of a specific web portal which will(More)
This paper reports pilot work regarding the deployment of advanced video educational software with synchronous and asynchronous web conferencing tools that allow collaborative interactions between lectures and learners. High level ratios of users appeared so rapidly that a new distributed system of servers acting as service nodes has been designed and(More)
