The creation of a parenteral feeding regimen can be described in mathematical terms by a system of algebraic equations. An example of such a system having clinical applicability is discussed in detail. Since the system is too cumbersome for use by hand or calculator, a microcomputer program incorporating the system was developed, and is also discussed.
The pocket computer system for generating hemodynamic profiles is described. This system provides advantages over systems presently used to generate hemodynamic profiles because it is easy to program, simple to use, and is relatively inexpensive.
A computer program is described that can generate and interpret hemodynamic profiles, and suggest a therapeutic approach to the identified hemodynamic problem. This program represents the first attempt to develop interpretive software for hemodynamic problems encountered in the ICU.
Many clinical factors must be taken into account in choosing an appropriate enteral feeding regimen for a particular patient. In a patient with multiple medical problems, this decision process may become overwhelmingly complex. This paper discusses a mathematical adjunct to aid in this problem. Using patient-specific weights for various clinical factors, an… (More)
