With the aim of reducing the risk of adverse drug effects, expert groups have defined lists of potentially inappropriate medications (PIM) for drug therapy in the elderly. However, it is unclear whether use of PIM at discharge from specialized geriatric units is associated with altered clinical characteristics. A post-hoc analysis of 376,335 drug(More)
—Accurate estimation of spatial gait characteristics is critical to assess motor impairments resulting from neurological or musculoskeletal disease. Currently, however, methodological constraints limit clinical applicability of state-of-the-art double integration approaches to gait patterns with a clear zero-velocity phase. We describe a novel approach to(More)
BACKGROUND Drug-induced QT-interval prolongation is associated with occurrence of potentially fatal Torsades de Pointes arrhythmias (TdP). So far, data regarding the overall burden of QT-interval prolonging drugs (QT-drugs) in geriatric patients are limited. OBJECTIVE This study was performed to assess the individual burden of QT-interval prolonging drugs(More)
