Background. The ability of safety technologies to decrease errors, harm, and risk to patients has yet to be demonstrated consistently. Objective. To compare discrepancies between medication and intravenous fluid (IVF) orders and bedside infusion pump settings within a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) before and after implementation of an interface(More)
Orthotopic liver transplantation candidates with depressive and other symptoms report poorer perceived quality of life when compared with nondepressed patients, and are also significantly more likely to die while awaiting transplantation. Alcohol abuse and dependence have been associated with increased levels of psychological co-morbidity. This article(More)
BACKGROUND The Risk-Adjusted Classification for Congenital Heart Surgery (RACHS-1) method and Aristotle Basic Complexity (ABC) scores correlate with mortality. However, low mortality rates in congenital heart disease (CHD) make use of mortality as the primary outcome measure insufficient. Demonstrating correlation between risk-adjustment tools and the(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the performance of the Pediatric Risk of Mortality 3 (PRISM-3) score in critically ill children with heart disease. METHODS Patients <18 years of age admitted with cardiac diagnoses (cardiac medical and cardiac surgical) to one of the participating pediatric intensive care units in the Virtual Pediatric Systems, LLC, database were(More)
To enable autonomous robotic manipulation in unstructured environments, we present SegICP-DSR, a realtime, dense, semantic scene reconstruction and pose estimation algorithm that achieves mm-level pose accuracy and standard deviation (7.9mm,σ=7.6mm and 1.7 deg, σ=0.7 deg) and successfully identified the object pose in 97% of test cases. This represents a(More)
BACKGROUND Presentation in shock and preoperative infection remain risk factors for neonatal cardiac surgery. This report describes bilateral pulmonary artery banding (bPAB) in ductal-dependent lesions with systemic outflow obstruction as rescue intervention before surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass in these high-risk neonates. METHODS A retrospective(More)
