Im Bereich der frühen innerklinischen Dokumentation von Notfallpatienten ist bisher keine einheitliche Dokumentationsgrundlage etabliert worden, obgleich in der Präklinik mit dem MIND (Minimaler Notarzt Datensatz) seit 1997 ein Dokumentationsstandard für die präklinische Dokumentation von Notfallpatienten existiert. Zur Erstellung eines interdisziplinär(More)
Objective. User interfaces of patient data management systems (PDMS) in intensive care units (ICU), like computer keyboard and mouse, may serve as reservoirs for the transmission of microorganisms. Pathogens may be transferred via the hands of personnel to the patient causing nosocomial infections. The purpose of this study was to examine the microbial(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of peridural analgesia on long-term survival in patients who underwent surgical treatment of colorectal carcinoma. BACKGROUND Clinical and animal studies suggest a potential benefit of peridural analgesia on morbidity and mortality after cancer surgery. The effect of peridural analgesia on long-term outcome after surgery(More)
BACKGROUND Due to the increasing functionality of medical information systems, it is hard to imagine day to day work in hospitals without IT support. Therefore, the design of dialogues between humans and information systems is one of the most important issues to be addressed in health care. This survey presents an analysis of the current quality level of(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this project is to develop a catalogue of competency-based learning objectives "Medical Informatics" for undergraduate medical education (abbreviated NKLM-MI in German). METHODS The development followed a multi-level annotation and consensus process. For each learning objective a reason why a physician needs this competence was(More)
WHAT IS KNOWN AND OBJECTIVE Echinocandins are antifungal agents, routinely used in invasive candida infections in critically ill patients. Their excellent anticandidal activity and their low frequency of reported adverse events and drug interactions make them first-line guideline treatments of candidiasis especially in intensive care units (ICU). We report(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the discriminative power on mortality of a modified Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) score and derived measures (maximum SOFA, total maximum SOFA, and delta SOFA) for complete automatic computation in an operative intensive care unit (ICU). DESIGN Retrospective study. SETTING Operative ICU of the Department of(More)
BACKGROUND Computerized clinical trial recruitment support is one promising field for the application of routine care data for clinical research. The primary task here is to compare the eligibility criteria defined in trial protocols with patient data contained in the electronic health record (EHR). To avoid the implementation of different patient(More)
Cardiopulmonary bypass is widely believed to be injurious to renal function. The unknown consequences of renal dysfunction with modern techniques of bypass in the elderly caused us to examine creatinine clearance and the excretion of sensitive marker proteins in older adult patients undergoing CABG. Thirty male patients were divided into three groups: group(More)
Current treatment guidelines for sepsis claim an early goal-directed hemodynamic optimization including fluid resuscitation, use of vasopressors and inotropic agents. We investigated the correlation between the prominent treatment goal central venous saturation (ScvO2) and the frontal and the thenar regional oxygen saturation (rSO2) measured by near(More)
