OBJECTIVES To compare the incidence, mortality, clinical characteristics and outcome between bacteraemias in diabetic and non-diabetic patients. METHODS A prospective study of all adult patients with bacteraemia admitted to a large Spanish teaching hospital during six consecutive years (1984-1990); 152 were diabetics and 1488 non-diabetics.

OBJECTIVES We prospectively investigated 274 consecutive Staphylococcus aureus septicaemias in adult patients between January 1983 and December 1989 to evaluate outcome in hospital acquired and community acquired episodes. METHODS Epidemiologic, clinical, laboratory and therapeutic parameters were analyzed with univariate and multivariate statistical(More)
The objective was to evaluate the need for vitamin D prophylaxis in healthy infants. This was a prospective and randomized study performed at primary care clinics. Eighty-eight full-term 1-month-old healthy infants were randomly assigned to receive (n = 41) or not (n = 47) 402 IU/d of vitamin D for 1 year. Primary outcome measures were serum(More)
The behavior of the series-parallel resonant converter with a capacitor as output filter is analyzed when operating under optimum switching conditions. A polynomial is deduced to quickly compute what switching frequency and duty cycle are necessary at the control to obtain the desired output voltage and power in the converter. This polynomial is so simple(More)
Seric levels of C reactive protein (C.R.P.) were determined in a series of 125 children under one month old. Of them, 75 were clinically healthy and 50 showed signs that suggested infection. In all this infants, in addition to C.R.P., different components of white blood cell differential count were determined, and a bacteriological study was undergone.(More)
