OBJECTIVE Conventional serologic typing of red blood cell systems other than ABO and RhD can be inaccurate and difficult to interpret in patients who have recently undergone blood transfusion. While molecular-based assays are not used routinely, the usefulness of genotyping was investigated in order to determine patients who may benefit from this procedure.(More)
The assessment of health-related quality of life (HRQL) in newly diagnosed breast cancer patients is necessary to address predictive factors in supportive clinical practice. The objectives of this study are to evaluate self-reported HRQL within 1 year after breast cancer diagnosis and to determine important factors associated with self-reported impaired(More)
Multilead signals reflecting electrical activity of the heart and hemodynamics give comprehensive but usually redundant representation of the processes. Therefore fragments of transient corruption or loss of the data in one or more leads can be restored substituting them by the signals reconstructed using information carried by the other leads. Principal(More)
OBJECTIVE. The assessment of breast cancer survival rates and comparison with those of other countries may help to deepen knowledge among decision makers in the health care system and to improve the inequalities in accessibility to early detection and effective treatment. The aim of this study was to evaluate breast cancer survival rates in Kaunas region,(More)
The method for detection and evaluation of T-wave alternance in ECG was elaborated for monitoring of the status of the patients in the Intensive Care Unit of Cardiology Clinics. 24h ECG recordings registered mostly in patients after myocardial infarction were used for elaboration of the method. Data preprocessing included ECG structural analysis,(More)
UNLABELLED Since 1996 activated protein C resistance is closely associated with various obstetric pathologies. The most widely discussed is that of secondary infertility due to recurrent miscarriage. However, there is still widespread discussion about the role of activated protein C resistance in this and other obstetric pathologies. AIM To investigate(More)
Two methods for evaluation of crucial factors describing status of cardiologic patients based on advanced signal processing methods were incorporated into prototype network based clinical decision support system: a) novel method for chest impedance signal analysis enabling reliable evaluation of central hemodynamics in non-invasive way; b) method for(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify the most appropriate, most suitable and most efficient dressing for split-thickness skin graft (STSG) donor sites. Comparing the wound healing rate, pain severity and duration, as well as the dressing change frequency in four randomised patient groups. METHODS A single-centre non-blinded randomised controlled trial was carried out(More)
Introduction Imbalance in cellular energetics has been suggested to be an important mechanism for organ failure in sepsis and septic shock. We hypothesized that such energy imbalance would either be caused by metabolic changes leading to decreased energy production or by increased energy consumption. Thus, we set out to investigate if mitochondrial(More)
