Queues at emergency rooms (ER) are prioritized based on the patient's sickness level. As a consequence, patients with low priority frequently have to wait excessively long. At Mercy Hospital, we began to study means by which such time would be reduced, without putting in jeopardy the life of critical patients. As an initial effort, we studied the flow of(More)
To describe associated ocular, neurologic, and systemic findings in a population of children with optic nerve hypoplasia, a retrospective chart review of 100 patients with optic nerve hypoplasia for the presence of neurologic, radiologic, and endocrine abnormalities was performed. Neuroimaging and endocrine studies were obtained in 65 cases. Visual acuity(More)
The case of 22-year old, white woman with bilateral orbital myositis following an acute upper respiratory tract infection is reported. The most important clinical findings were ocular pain, proptosis, restricted eye motility and swelling of the eyelids. The enlarged eye muscles were seen on orbital computerized tomography scan. The clinical findings of(More)
1. Introduction and motivation This paper describes a tool which provides feedback on transcription attempts. Phonemic transcription is one of the requirements of many phonetics and phonology and even general linguistics courses at university level. Transcription of one's native language is a useful mechanism for raising awareness of the sound system and(More)
This article wants to be a memory to the figure and neuro-pathologic work of D. Gonzalo Rodríguez-Lafora. The tediousness of its neurological work allows to divide it in its slopes neurophatologic, neurophysiologic, clinic and therapy. Also, it embraces other topics outside of the field of the neurology, centered fundamentally in the psychiatry. It is(More)
On-time delivery of the paper is critical in the newspaper industry since it is directly related to the quality of service; therefore, it enhances or damages sales. This study was focused on determining the means to meet required delivery times, and in identifying ways to improve it, so that there is a lower probability of failure. A simulation model was(More)
We present the neuropsychological assessment with computer aid of six cerebral palsy children. Three children had right hemiparesis and three, left hemiparesis. The tomographic examination showed parietal cavities (porencephalic cyst in 4 children, ischemic injury in 1 case and subarachnoid cyst in 1 case). We have proposed to assess the visuo-spatial(More)
Simulation modeling has been widely used to study many aspects of FMS design, planing and control. Yet, simulation modeling still offers other capabilities that are proven to be effective for the on-line control of FMS. An example of it is the training of neural nets off-line, so that it will later control the decision making process when the FMS is in(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA) experience functional impairment and reduced quality of life, and thus patient global assessment in PsA is explained mainly by the physical, but also by the psychological, aspect of the disease. To assess the prevalence of minimal disease activity (MDA) in Spanish patients with PsA, we examined their(More)
