Clinical decision support systems (CDS) can interpret detailed treatment protocols for ICU care providers. In open-loop systems, clinicians can decline protocol recommendations. We capture their reasons for declining as part of ongoing, iterative protocol validation and refinement processes. Even though our protocol was well-accepted by clinicians overall,(More)
Since 1995 we have been developing a decision-support model, called Q-ID, which uses a series of infectious disease knowledge bases to make recommendations for empirical treatment or to check the appropriateness of current antibiotic therapy. From disease manifestations and risk factors, a differential diagnosis for the patient is generated by a diagnostic(More)
We describe the use of a frame-based knowledge representation to construct an adequately-explicit bedside clinical decision support application for ventilator weaning. The application consists of a data entry form, a knowledge base, an inference engine, and a patient database. The knowledge base contains database queries, a data dictionary, and decision(More)
INTRODUCTION We evaluated the feasibility of using an electronic protocol developed for research use (Research-eProtocol-insulin) for blood glucose management in usual intensive care unit clinical practice. METHODS We implemented the rules of Research-eProtocol-insulin in the electronic medical record of the Intermountain Healthcare hospital system(More)
Vigorous respiratory therapy can prevent the development of postoperative pulmonary complications which occur with increased frequency after upper abdominal surgery. Obesity poses an additional risk factor. To study the effects of postoperative chest percussion with postural drainage (CPT), 53 consecutive patients undergoing Roux-en-Y gastric stapling(More)
