Detection and reporting of drug-induced life-threatening potassium disturbances and the study of associated factors under a Pharmacovigilance Program using Laboratory Signals at a Hospital (PPLSH) during a 2-year period. All serum potassium levels <2 mmol/l or >7 mmol/l detected at admission to the hospital, including those of patients who died in the(More)
This work presents two current-mode integrated circuits designed for sensor signal preprocessing in embedded systems. The proposed circuits have been designed to provide good signal transfer and fulfill their function, while minimizing the load effects due to building complex conditioning architectures. The processing architecture based on the proposed(More)
AIMS To estimate the incidence and predictors of symptomatic arterial and venous thromboembolic events (TEE) from intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) therapy according to its indications. METHODS We performed a retrospective cohort study of patients seen at our institution and treated with IVIg over a 36-month period. Indications, comorbility and(More)
BACKGROUND Retrospective studies have identified elevated vancomycin trough levels >20 mg/L as a predictor of nephrotoxicity with a high variable incidence of 12.6%-65%. However, the elevated levels may represent the effect of renal compromise rather than the cause of nephrotoxicity. The aim of this study was to report the incidence of acute kidney injury(More)
Background. Methylphenidate (MPH) is widely used in treating children with attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder. Hepatotoxicity is a rare phenomenon; only few cases are described with no liver failure. Case. We report on the case of a 12-year-old boy who received MPH for attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder. Two months later the patient presented(More)
This paper presents the implementation of a wearable wireless sensor network aimed at monitoring harmful gases in industrial environments. The proposed solution is based on a customized wearable sensor node using a low-power low-rate wireless personal area network (LR-WPAN) communications protocol, which as a first approach measures CO₂ concentration, and(More)
This paper proposes a battery-compatible electronic interface based on a general purpose lock-in amplifier (LIA) capable of recovering input signals up to the MHz range. The core is a novel ASIC fabricated in 1.8 V 0.18 µm CMOS technology, which contains a dual-phase analog lock-in amplifier consisting of carefully designed building blocks to allow(More)
