BACKGROUND Prophylactic treatment with prostaglandin synthetase inhibitors (PSI) is potentially harmful. Moreover, long-term benefits of prophylactic use of indomethacin or ibuprofen are not proven. Early treatment of a high-risk population is alternative to the routine prophylactic use of PSI, but it remains unclear which newborn is at greatest risk for… (More)
We discuss an application of rough set tools for modeling networks of classifiers induced from data and ontology of concepts delivered by experts. Such networks allow us to develop strategies for automated planning of a treatment of infants with respiratory illness. We report results of experiments with the networks of classifiers used in automated planning… (More)
The prognostic value of some continuos measurement parameters calculating Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia predictor is the main goal of the paper. The most important question is, if the continuous measurement of parameters can help us to build a better algorithm solving Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia prediction problem?
Cobb syndrome (cutaneomeningospinal angiomatosis) is a rare phacomatosis characterized by vascular abnormality of the spinal cord associated with a vascular naevus at the same metamere. We report the case of a newborn with Cobb syndrome, diagnosed by sonography of the spine and later confirmed by MRI. In neonates and young infants with dermatomal cutaneous… (More)
X-linked lissencephaly with ambiguous genitalia syndrome (XLAG) (OMIM #3000215) is a rare, severe malformation of the brain cortex with abnormal neuronal migration caused by mutations of the ARX gene. All the reported patients with lissencephaly are males who presented with a posterior-to-anterior gradient, moderately increased thickness of the brain… (More)
BACKGROUND Thanatophoric dwarfism is a lethal bone dysplasia causing severe disturbance in body proportions, shortening and deformation of the long bones and maldevelopment of the chest leading to severe respiratory failure and early death. The disease is caused usually by de novo mutation in the gene of fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 (FGFR3).… (More)
This paper investigates medical planning in the context of a complex dynamical system. The solution to the problem of medical planning is proposed using application of rough set tools for modeling networks of classifiers induced from data and ontology of concepts delivered by experts. Such networks allow us to develop strategies for automated planning of a… (More)
The main goal of this paper is prediction of Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia among newborn children. Static and dynamic parameters obtained from hospital database and medical data monitoring system were used to build logistic regression and radial basis function neural networks (RBFN) models.
Many profitable methods of damage detection in rotating machines involve cyclostationarity. This approach exploits the fact that vibrations of a damaged machinery possess a periodic envelope. The frequency related to this periodic behavior is strictly related to one of the characteristic frequencies associated with design and specific operation of the… (More)
