BACKGROUND Anticoagulation in cardioversion of atrial fibrillation is currently performed with unfractionated heparin (UFH) and oral anticoagulants, with or without guidance by transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). Low-molecular-weight heparins may reduce the risk of bleeding, may obviate the need for intravenous access, and do not require frequent(More)
Reject analysis was performed on 288,000 computed radiography (CR) image records collected from a university hospital (UH) and a large community hospital (CH). Each record contains image information, such as body part and view position, exposure level, technologist identifier, and—if the image was rejected—the reason for rejection. Extensive database(More)
Blood pressure control in patients with type 2 diabetes and hypertension is poor. It is unclear how effectively general practitioners assess and treat such patients. T2Target included hypertensive patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus who had undergone ambulatory blood pressure monitoring within the past 3 months. Recordings were analyzed by the general(More)
The mode and duration of anticoagulation in the setting of cardioversion of atrial fibrillation-either with or without guidance by transesophageal echocardiography (TEE)-is still an unresolved issue. Oral anticoagulation with warfarin or phenprocoumon is frequently used but may be associated with an increased risk of bleeding complications or, conversely,(More)
Telemedicine increases quality of life dramatically. Patient’s autonomy and responsibility are strengthened, that means a significant benefit. Patients realise a better safety with diagnostic and therapy as well as a decrease in therapeutic risks. This leads to a great acceptance of telemetric methods. Improvement of quality of life by telemedicine is(More)
