In this panel, principal members of seven leading simulation software companies discuss two important questions concerning the current and future status of simulation software. Suppose that a potential client asked you why they should buy your simulation software instead of another product. What are the specific features and capabilities of your software… (More)
BACKGROUND Children with obstructive sleep disordered breathing (OSDB) have both impaired cognitive performance and frequent movements during sleep. It is not known whether movements during sleep are related to cognitive function. METHODS We studied 56 children with adenotonsillar hypertrophy suspected of having OSDB with actigraphy for six consecutive… (More)
Extendm is a graphical, interactive, general purpose simulation program for both discrete event and continuous modeling. Extend incorporates the capabilities of both a data-driven simulator and a simulation language. Because it is both object-oriented and extensible, Extend offers a powerful yet easy-to-use simulation environment for modeling in any field… (More)
In view of the current controversy regarding the use of antidepressants in children and adolescents, we examined trends from 1994 to 2003 in the use of antidepressants, lithium, and anticonvulsants by enrollees, aged 5-17 years, of Kaiser Permanente in Northern California. We found that the use of antidepressants more than doubled from 9.4 per 1000… (More)
