We present the Spanish adaptation made by the CEIPC of the European Guidelines on Cardiovascular Disease Prevention (CVD) in Clinical Practice 2008. This guide recommends the SCORE model for risk evaluation. The aim is to prevent premature mortality and morbidity due to CVD through the management of its related risk factors in clinical practice. The guide(More)
The endurance time during constant high work-rate exercise (t(LIM)) is used to assess exercise capacity in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and as an outcome measure for pulmonary rehabilitation. Our study was designed to establish the minimum clinically important difference for the t(LIM). t(LIM) was measured in 105 patients (86 males)(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Many wide-necked aneurysms are difficult or impossible to treat with the Guglielmi detachable coil (GDC). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the use of a neck bridging device, the TriSpan coil, in combination with standard GDCs for the treatment of wide-necked aneurysms in an experimental canine aneurysm model. METHODS Of 24(More)
BACKGROUND The successful implementation of cardiovascular disease (CVD) prevention guidelines relies heavily on primary care physicians (PCPs) providing risk factor evaluation, intervention and patient education. The aim of this study was to ascertain the degree of awareness and implementation of the Spanish adaptation of the European guidelines on CVD(More)
Use of European Quality of Life-5 Dimensions (EQ-5D) questionnary to value the health related quality of life variation because of influenza Objective: To describe self-perceived health status and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in healthy individuals of working age, to measure changes due to influenza infection, and to evaluate the effect of(More)
Mathematical models for economic evaluation: dynamic models based on differential equations A B S T R A C T The joint utilization of both decision trees and epidemiological models based on differential equations is an appropriate method for the economic evaluation of preventative interventions applied to infectious diseases. These models can combine the(More)
In this paper we present the design and implementation, as well as a use case, of a tool for workflow analysis. The tool provides an assistant for the specification of properties of a workflow model. The specification language for property description is Fluent Linear Time Temporal Logic. Fluents provide an adequate flexibility for capturing properties of(More)
