OBJECTIVE Safety and efficacy of biphasic insulin aspart 70/30 (BIAsp 70/30, prebreakfast and presupper) were compared with once-daily insulin glargine in type 2 diabetic subjects inadequately controlled on oral antidiabetic drugs (OADs). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS This 28-week parallel-group study randomized 233 insulin-naive patients with HbA(1c)(More)
OBJECTIVE Multiple daily injection (MDI) therapy of bolus insulin aspart and basal insulin glargine was compared with continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) with aspart in type 1 diabetic patients previously treated with CSII. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS One hundred patients were enrolled in a randomized, multicenter, open-label, crossover study.(More)
Natural killer (NK) cells were enumerated by three-color immunofluorescence in 255 uninfected and 399 human immunodeficiency virus-infected adults. Several dramatic alterations were observed. First, the median number and percentage of CD16+CD56+ NK cells, the subset that comprises > 90% of the NK cells in healthy adults, were severely decreased (median,(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Telemedicine is emerging as a potential timesaving, efficient means for evaluating patients experiencing acute stroke. In areas where local stroke care specialists are not available, telemedicine can link an emergency department physician with a specialist in a stroke treatment center. This consultation provides an opportunity for(More)
We developed an algorithm for processing networked vital signs (VS) to remotely identify in real-time when a patient enters and leaves a given operating room (OR). The algorithm addresses two types of mismatches between OR occupancy and VS: a patient is in the OR but no VS are available (e.g., patient is being hooked up), and no patient is in the OR but(More)
BACKGROUND In response to inherent inadequacies in health information technologies, clinicians create their own tools for managing their information needs. Little is known about these clinician-designed information tools. With greater appreciation for why clinicians resort to these tools, health information technology designers can develop systems that(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship between oxygenation and short-term outcomes in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI). DESIGN Logistic regression analysis was used to determine whether average high (>200 mm Hg) or low (<100 mm Hg) PaO2 levels within the first 24 hours of hospital admission correlated with patient outcomes relative to(More)
OVERVIEW For time-sensitive, critical-care scenarios requiring transport—such as stroke, high-risk pregnancy, trauma, and pediatric care—reducing the elapsed time between symptom onset and treatment can be of great benefit to the patient while reducing the health care costs to the individual, the hospital, and the public. With mobile telemedicine, valuable(More)
AIMS To assess the effects of body mass index, renal impairment (creatinine clearance), and hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh Score) on the pharmacokinetics of insulin aspart. METHODS Pharmacokinetics of insulin aspart (injected subcutaneously in the abdomen immediately before a Boost standardized meal) were characterized in: (1) diabetic subjects with four(More)
BACKGROUND Many resuscitation scenarios include the use of emergency intubation to support injured patients. New video-guided airway management technology is available, which may minimize the risk to patients from this procedure. METHODS This was a controlled clinical trial conducted in the trauma receiving unit in a university-affiliated urban hospital(More)
