Clostridium difficile is a common cause of nosocomial diarrhoea in the USA. To develop a score model that would help to identify severe versus mild or moderate C. difficile infection (CDI) upon admission we performed a retrospective cohort study. Between January 2004 and December 2007, 255 patients met inclusion criteria for this study. Severe CDI was(More)
The dynamics of phase transitions induced by nanopulsed ruby laser radiation (80 nsec, 2 J/cm) both in silicon layers doped with erbium ions and in those containing doped erbium and oxygen have been studied by an optical probing method. It is shown that the reflectivity behavior of structures under pulsed irradiation is governed by phase transitions(More)
