METHODS From 1995 to 1999, all relevant data from 103,264 anesthetic procedures were routinely(More)
The development of medical research networks within the framework of translational research has fostered interest in the integration of clinical and biological research data in a common database. The building of one single database integrating clinical data and biological research data requires a concept which enables scientists to retrieve information and(More)
In anesthesia and intensive care logistic regression analysis are often used to generate predictive models for risk assessment. Strictly seen only independent variables should be represented in such prognostic models. Using anesthesia-information-management-systems a lot of (depending) information is stored in a database during the preoperative ward round.(More)
