PREMO is a major new ISO/IEC standard for graphics and multimedia, which addresses many of the concerns that have been expressed about existing graphics standards. In particular, it addresses the issues of configuration, extension, and interoperation of and between PREMO implementations. This paper gives an overview of PREMO and highlights its most(More)
Background Inappropriate therapies remain a major problem in patients with implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs). Decreasing the proportion of inappropriate therapies is a major objective. With the addition of atrial detection and advanced algorithms, dual-chamber ICDs are designed to offer better discrimination of ventricular (VT) and(More)
BACKGROUND After synthesis by cardiomyocytes, precursor proBNP1-108 is cleaved into NT-proBNP and BNP. Recently, cross-reactivity between these assays was discussed. The aim of this study was to characterize the cross-reactivities, through a new biochemical innovative approach consisting in the total depletion of the circulating proBNP1-108 in patients with(More)
AIMS This report describes the baseline characteristics of patients in the Reduction of Events with Darbepoetin alfa in Heart Failure trial (RED-HF) which is testing the hypothesis that anaemia correction with darbepoetin alfa will reduce the composite endpoint of death from any cause or hospital admission for worsening heart failure, and improve other(More)
for the EuorScore II, 0.61 for the logistic EuroScore, and 0.59 for the STS-PROM score for predicting 30-day mortality. For the EuroScore II, optimal cut-points were a low-risk (EuroScore II ≤ 4%, 30-day mortality 1.2%), an intermediate risk (Eu-roScore II 4%-9%, 30-day mortality 8.6%), and a high-risk group (EuroScore II > 9%, 30-day mortality 17.1%;(More)
MADE is the acronym for an ESPRIT III project aiming at the development of a programming environment for multimedia applications. The resulting software library is based on C++, and is planned to operate on UNIX Workstations as well as on PC{based platforms. This reports gives a technical overview of the project, and describes some possible application(More)
