OBJECTIVES To compare charting of physiological parameters manually by nurses and automatically by computer and so decide whether this task could accurately be performed by computer. SUBJECTS/SETTING 101 consecutive patients admitted for tertiary neonatal intensive care. DESIGN Direct comparison of 48 hours of data collected by both methods. Computer(More)
A premature baby born up to four months early is a fragile patient dependent on intensive care. The body systems are physiologically immature and so tolerate stress badly. The tendency of these infants to rapidly deteriorate, has led us to use a cotside computer monitoring system which displays physiological trends. Information from standard neonatal(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess whether the provision of computerized physiologic trend data could improve outcome in newborn infants requiring intensive care. DESIGN Randomized, controlled trial, with subsidiary questionnaire studies. SETTING Tertiary neonatal intensive care unit with 12 intensive care cots. PATIENTS All infants admitted between January 1991 and(More)
When designing a ship, the traditional driving issues are seen to be powering, stability, strength and seakeeping. Consequently it is only when the broad form of the layout has been finalised that issues relating to crewing, ship operations and evolutions, such as evacuation, tend to be investigated within the overall design constraints. This can result in(More)
Neonatal nurses typically record hourly data of heart rate (HR), blood pressure (BP) and other physiological parameters from the monitors on sick infants. This recording is time consuming and is collected at variable times depending on the nurses' other duties. We wished to evaluate the accuracy of this nursing practice.Methods: 37 infants who required(More)
