INTRODUCTION Stress-induced hyperglycaemia is prevalent in critical care. Control of blood glucose levels to within a 4.4 to 6.1 mmol/L range or below 7.75 mmol/L can reduce mortality and improve clinical outcomes. The Specialised Relative Insulin Nutrition Tables (SPRINT) protocol is a simple wheel-based system that modulates insulin and nutritional inputs(More)
Targeted, tight model-based glycemic control in critical care patients that can reduce mortality 18-45% is enabled by prediction of insulin sensitivity, S(I). However, this parameter can vary significantly over a given hour in the critically ill as their condition evolves. A stochastic model of S(I) variability is constructed using data from 165 critical(More)
OBJECTIVE This is the first study to examine Wolf Motor Function Test (WMFT) tasks among EXCITE Trial participants that could not be completed at baseline or 2 weeks later. METHODS Data were collected from participants who received constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) immediately at the time of randomization (CIMT-I, n = 106) and from those for whom(More)
This paper presents a mathematical model for short-term (24 hour) electrical energy consumption in Ireland. The model is based on fuzzy logic and the parameters determined by drawing on the extensive intuitive knowledge of operators in the National Control Centre (NCC) in E.S.B., using a series of questionnaires to determine the shape and location of the(More)
