Health care professionals need information delivery tools for accessing information at the point of patient care. Personal digital assistants (PDAs), or hand-held devices demonstrate great promise as point of care information devices. An earlier study [The Constellation Project: experience and evaluation of personal digital assistants in the clinical(More)
We present a plastic microfluidic device with integrated nanoscale magnetic traps (NSMTs) that separates magnetic from non-magnetic beads with high purity and throughput, and unprecedented enrichments. Numerical simulations indicate significantly higher localized magnetic field gradients than previously reported. We demonstrated >20 000-fold enrichment for(More)
Last year, we reported (2002 AMIA Proceedings, p 971) on how medical school residents report on their use of personal digital assistants (PDA) or hand held devices. We first surveyed 88 residents in six residency programs representing both generalist and specialist practices (Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Neurology, Pediatrics, Radiology, and Surgery.(More)
PURPOSE Clinicians are overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of new clinical information that is available on a daily basis. Despite the availability of information tools for finding this information and for updating clinical knowledge, no study has examined the quality of current information alerting services. METHODS We developed a 7-item checklist based(More)
Expect to encounter 6 to 7 cases of basal cell cancer, 1 to 2 cases of squamous cell cancer, and approximately 1 case of melanoma every year. There is good evidence for using the American Cancer Society's ABCDE criteria as a clinical diagnostic test to rule out malignant melanoma). The revised 7-point checklist has high sensitivity and is therefore useful(More)
Almost all pathologists face legal issues when dealing with the specimens they work with on a day-today basis, whether it involves quality control and assurance in handling the specimens, facing the possibility of malpractice suits, or serving as an expert witness in a trial. Written in an easy to read, conversational tone, this book fills the need for a(More)
