The automatic application of computerized guidelines and protocols in intensive care is not simple, given the high volume of data which must be processed and the need to offer advice on a continuous basis. However most of this data is available automatically and there is therefore the real possibility of improving the quality of care by providing timely(More)
The aim of the NEONATE project is to investigate decision support in the neonatal intensive care unit. This paper describes the considerable amount of observational and physiological data which was acquired and as well as the tools which have been developed to analyse them. Both the data and the tools are in the public domain. We believe that our database(More)
The aim of the NEONATE project is to investigate sub-optimal decision making in the neonatal intensive care unit and to implement decision support tools which will draw the attention of nursing and clinical staff to situations where specific actions should be taken or avoided. We have collected over 400 patient-hours of data on 31 separate babies, including(More)
Medical time-series data often contain sets of closely related, non-orthogonal channel – for example transcutaneous O2 and CO2 or mean, systolic and diastolic blood pressures. It is desirable when summarizing such sets of data to select a single set of time-periods dividing the data into segments of distinctive character. This can be achieved using an(More)
The study sought to determine the psychometric properties of the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) in individuals with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) assessed using a web-based data collection tool. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses were conducted on the HADS to determine its psychometric properties in 117 individuals with CFS. Seven(More)
We compared a computerized version of the Cognitive Drug Research (CDR) cognitive assessment test battery and a completely automated telephone version of the same battery. These assessed aspects of attention, working memory and long-term memory. Both methods were used to assess the cognitive performance of a cohort of 30 people with confirmed chronic(More)
