Ventilator-associated lung injury in patients without acute lung injury at the onset of mechanical ventilation*
TLDR
The association between the initial tidal volume and the development of acute lung injury suggests that ventilator-associated lung injury may be an important cause of this syndrome.
Use of a medical records linkage system to enumerate a dynamic population over time: the Rochester epidemiology project.
TLDR
How the REP links medical records from multiple health care institutions to specific individuals and how residency is confirmed over time is described and evidence for the validity of theREP Census enumeration is provided.
Data resource profile: the Rochester Epidemiology Project (REP) medical records-linkage system.

Age- and sex-associated trends in bloodstream infection: a population-based study in Olmsted County, Minnesota.
TLDR
The incidence of BSI increases sharply with increasing age and is significantly higher in males, mainly because of nosocomial organisms, including S aureus.
Permanent pacemaker and implantable cardioverter defibrillator infection: a population-based study.
TLDR
