BACKGROUND Although burnout among nurses has been studied in a great deal, this work has not included Korean nurses. Furthermore, the role of personal resources such as empathy and empowerment in predicting the variance in burnout has never been examined. AIM The purpose of this study was to understand the phenomenon of burnout among Korean nurses. A(More)
This paper presents computational support for the Clock Drawing Test (CDT), a simple cognitive dysfunction diagnosis tool. Despite its popularity of current use, the CDT has been administered the same way for the past three decades as a pencil-and-paper test. By making a computerized drawing test, we can understand the process of clock drawing construction(More)
Early detection of cognitive impairment can prevent or delay the progress of cognitive dysfunction. In the field of neurology, the Clock Drawing Test (CDT) is one of the most popular instruments for detecting cognitive impairment. This paper presents the development of the ClockReader system, a computerized Clock Drawing Test. The main function of the(More)
PURPOSE Inhalation injury is one of the most severe morbidity and mortality factors in burn patients. The purpose of this study is to analyze the impact of inhalation injury to the prognosis of burn patients and to investigate the relationship between the inhalation injury assessment and the prognosis of patients. METHODS Bronchoscopy was performed in 170(More)
This paper introduces a new approach to dictionary-based source separation employing a learned non-linear metric. In contrast to existing parametric source separation systems, this model is able to utilize a rich dictionary of speech signals. In contrast to previous dictionary-based source separation systems, the system can utilize perceptually relevant(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Inserting a nasogastric tube (NGT) in intubated patients may be difficult because they cannot follow swallowing instructions, resulting in a high rate of first-attempt failure. We introduce a simple technique for inserting an orogastric tube in an emergency department (ED). METHODS Fifty-six patients in the ED, who were intubated and(More)
Intercellular adhesion molecule 1 (ICAM-1) and vascular cell adhesion molecule 1 (VCAM-1) play key roles in the initiation of vascular inflammation. In this study, we explored whether sulforaphane, a dietary phytochemical, can inhibit the expression of ICAM-1 and VCAM-1 in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) stimulated with lipopolysaccharide(More)
This paper utilizes a recently introduced non-linear dictionary-based denoising system in another voice mapping task, that of transforming low-bandwidth, low-bitrate speech into high-bandwidth, high-quality speech. The system uses a deep neural network as a learned nonlinear comparison function to drive unit selection in a concatenative synthesizer based on(More)
In this paper, we propose a new recognition algorithm for handwritten digit recognition. This algorithm is designed to enhance the recognition accuracy of current Microsoft SDK recognizer. The algorithm recognizes the unique signature of each number by comparing curved and straight lines, and writing sequences of the stroke. Through the trial experiments,(More)
