There are many controversial results about the influence of acute renal failure (ARF) and renal replacement therapy (RRT) on patient outcome in intensive care units. This retrospective study compared demographics. severity, course, and prognosis of ARF during 36 months (period 1, 1991 through 1993; 128 cases) and 18 months (period 2, 1994 through 1995; 141(More)
Foreword In many cases competitiveness of modern products is defined by the degree of customization, i.e. the ability of a manufacturer to adapt a product according to customer requirements. Knowledge based configuration methods support the composition of complex systems from a set of adjustable components. However, there are two important prerequisites for(More)
Differentiating between the hepatocellular "internal" and the "surgical" or "endoscopic" cholestasis syndrome has become a domain of sonography. There is a 92 to 99% success rate, due to the possibility of diagnosing by means of sonography dilations of the gall bladder, the extrahepatic biliary tract and the intrahepatic bile ducts, as well as numerous(More)
Endogenous digitalis-like factor (EDLF), an inhibitor of membrane Na+/K(+)-ATPase, is discussed to be involved in the pathogenesis of cirrhogenic portal hypertension, ascites formation and development of functional hepatorenal failure. Therefore, we investigated the serum content of this mediator in patients with liver cirrhosis Child-Pugh stage A, B, and C(More)
Hemodialysis and hemofiltration (intermittent or continuous) are the most frequently applied extracorporeal treatment strategies, enabling survival of patients with acute or chronic renal failure. To a various degree on the other hand they induce an undesirable inflammatory response summarized as bioincompatibility. Apart from the quality of the dialysate(More)
3 The purpose of this paper is to introduce the novel knowledge acquisition methodology K-Model. We describe the methodology itself and how it was applied within a project for creating a prototype configuration application at J. Schmalz GmbH. K-Model is supporting both the formalism of designing configuration models on a conceptual level as well as the(More)
