The Medical Algorithms Project

  title={The Medical Algorithms Project},
  author={M. Sriram Iyengar and John R. Svirbely},
The Medical Algorithms Project, a web-based resource located at www.medal.org, is the world's largest collection of medical-related spreadsheets, consisting of over 13,500 Excel spreadsheets each encoding a medical algorithm from 45 different areas of medical practice. This free resource is in use worldwide with over 106,000 registered users as of March 1, 2009.

Semantic Description of Health Record Data for Procedural Interoperability
The openEHR archetypes are analyzed in order to utilizeopenEHR formatted data in medical grid environments on the MediGrid platform.
Mobile computing platform with decision support modules for hemotherapy.
The development of a mobile computing platform (MCP) with a decision support module (DSM) for patients in the authors' coagulation-based hemotherapy service has greatly increased the productivity and efficiency of the service.
Identifying and Locating Complete Psychosocial Instruments
Abstract Reference librarians often encounter “instrument seekers,” library users who need to find a complete psychosocial test, scale, or questionnaire to use or adapt for research or clinical use.
Ethics of Algorithms
This thesis aims to provide insight into the effects of algorithmic applications, and unpack the ‘black box’ of their operations by questioning their status as neutral tools or technologies by focusing on the ethical implications of algorithms.
Surgical Algorithms in Rhinoplasty: A Scoping Review of the Current Status
Algorithms related to tip shape and/or position were most frequent, followed by those for crooked nose and dorsal height, and only 7 of the algorithms described outcomes for utilizing the algorithm, shows that future studies could be done to further develop surgical algorithms for rhinoplasty and evaluate outcomes.
Predicting on-going hemorrhage and transfusion requirement after severe trauma: a validation of six scoring systems and algorithms on the TraumaRegister DGU®
Weighted and more sophisticated systems such as TASH and PWH scores including higher numbers of variables perform superior over simple non-weighted models.
Time series analysis as input for clinical predictive modeling: Modeling cardiac arrest in a pediatric ICU
A method is proposed that will allow for time series data to be used in clinical prediction models and has the potential to bring arrest prediction to the pediatric intensive care environment, possibly allowing for interventions that can save lives and prevent disabilities.
Creatinine corrections for estimating children's and adult's pesticide intake doses in equilibrium with urinary pesticide and creatinine concentrations
The objective was to develop a set of equations predicting a person's expected daily creatinine excretion as a function of age, gender, race and morphometry, from birth to old age, and it is proposed that these equations, with caveat, can now be used with measured urine concentrations to consistently estimate the corresponding equilibrium intake doses of toxicants at ages from Birth to 92 years for the healthy non-obese.
Pregnant female anthropometry from ct scans for finite element model development.
The masks developed and the anthropometric measurements taken will be used to develop a more accurate FE model of the pregnant female for use in the research and development in academia, industry, and government.
Association between Sexual Function and Marital Relationship in Patients with Ischemic Heart Disease
Abstract Background: Patients with ischemic heart disease (IHD) may report difficulties with sexual function and marital relationship. However, there is a dearth of studies focusing on the


Implementing Medical Algorithms for Use in Cardiology
The benefits, problems and issues in the development and clinical use of computer-based algorithms by cardiologists are discussed.
Usability Testing of a Web-based Information Resource as a Development Tool
This paper describes the usability testing of a prototype algorithm for www.medal.org, and asks participants to compare the algorithm with other information resources for solving different trauma scenarios.
VITA - An Interactive 3-D Visualization System to Enhance Student Understanding of Mathematical Concepts in Medical Decision-Making
This version of VITA has a focus on post-test predictive values, sensitivity, specificity, prevalence, and test cut-offs.
