In this work we propose a solution that is aiming to help and improve the patients' life after a cardiac surgery. This is a group of patients that have to be monitored for a short(More)
The aim of this work was to develop a system that will be used for remote monitoring of patients at home after a cardiac surgery so as to keep their rehabilitation period as smooth as possible and avoid unnecessary visits to the hospital.

In critically ill patients, pain is a major problem. Efficient pain management depends on a systematic, comprehensive assessment of pain. We aimed to review and synthesize current evidence on the impact of a systematic approach to pain assessment on critically ill patients' outcomes. A systematic review of published studies (CINAHL, PUBMED, SCOPUS, EMBASE,(More)
Blunt traumatic injury and acute dissection of thoracic aorta is increasing in incidence in seriously multi-trauma patients, remaining highly lethal. Early identification and repair is the key to a successful outcome. We report an unusual case of a 62-year-old man involved in a motor vehicle accident after subarachnoid hemorrhage due to an intracranial(More)
