Needlestick Injuries in the United States: Epidemiologic, Economic, and Quality of Life Issues
TLDR
Wide use of safety devices might be more easily justified on economic grounds when the full clinical and economic benefits of these new technologies are considered, especially within the context of injury prevention. Expand
Needlestick injury in acute care nurses caring for patients with diabetes mellitus: a retrospective study
TLDR
This study is the first to show the relatively high risk both of NI and of NI that draws blood among nurses injecting insulin with a disposable syringe and confirms previous incidence estimates of NI among nurses. Expand
Cost-effectiveness of novel relapsed-refractory multiple myeloma therapies in Norway: lenalidomide plus dexamethasone vs bortezomib
TLDR
The simulation model showed that treatment with LEN/DEX leads to greater LYs and QALYs when compared to bortezomib in the treatment of rrMM patients, and was the basis of the reimbursement approval of LEN /DEX in Norway. Expand
Cost-effectiveness of diabetes case management for low-income populations.
TLDR
The Project Dulce diabetes case management program was associated with cost-effective improvements in quality-adjusted life expectancy and decreased incidence of diabetes-related complications over patient lifetimes, and may be particularly cost effective for low-income populations. Expand
Insulin therapy in type 2 diabetes patients failing oral agents: cost‐effectiveness of biphasic insulin aspart 70/30 vs. insulin glargine in the US *
TLDR
To project the long‐term clinical and economic outcomes of treatment with biphasic insulin aspart 30 vs. insulin glargine in insulin‐naïve type 2 diabetes patients failing to achieve glycemic control with oral antidiabetic agents alone (OADs). Expand
A 9-band WCDMA/EDGE transceiver supporting HSPA evolution
TLDR
The future of cellular radio ICs lies in the integration of an ever-increasing number of bands and channel bandwidths, so the transceiver chose to minimize the number of ports by using single-ended RF interfaces for both RX and TX, which saves several package pins. Expand
Short-term economic impact associated with occupational needlestick injuries among acute care nurses
TLDR
These data suggest substantial economic burden immediately following NI on a national and individual hospital level occurring among acute-care nurses treating patients with diabetes and long-term treatment costs would add to the overall economic burden. Expand
Preference and resource utilization in elderly patients: InnoLet versus vial/syringe.
TLDR
InnoLet is a disposable insulin injection device with a large easy-to-read dial, large push button for injection, and audible clicks for each unit injected, and a majority of patients indicated a preference for the InnoLet device. Expand
Improving life expectancy and decreasing the incidence of complications associated with type 2 diabetes: a modelling study of HbA1c targets
TLDR
Benefits from sequential reduction scenarios, when aggregated, exhibited the most dramatic effect, illustrating the long‐term importance of reaching normoglycaemia and support intensified HbA1c control as a cornerstone of effective long-term type 2 diabetes management. Expand
Comments on Long-term clinical and cost outcomes of treatment with biphasic insulin aspart 30/70 versus insulin glargine in insulin-naïve type 2 diabetes patients: cost-effectiveness analysis in the
TLDR
This study is the first to address the long-term health economic implications of treating type 2 diabetes patients failing oral anti-diabetics with a biphasic insulin mix versus long-acting insulin and projections indicate that improved HbA1c levels with BIAsp 30/70 treatment are associated with improvements in life expectancy and quality-adjusted life expectancy.
