The comparison of pH measurements in seawater collected at different locations or occasions, is meaningful if the same measurand (i.e. the quantity intended to be measured) is determined, if adequate ...
The debate comparing the benefits of measurement uncertainty (uncertainty in measurement, MU) with total error (TE) for the assessment of laboratory performance continues. The summary recently provide...
To analyze consistency of reference limits and widths of reference intervals (RIs) calculated by six procedures and evaluate a protocol for merging intrainstitutional reference data.
Incentive schemes often feature a threshold beyond which providers receive no additional payment for performance. We investigate whether providers' uncertainty about the relationship between effort an...
The detection of GW170817 and the identification of its host galaxy have allowed for the first standard-siren measurement of the Hubble constant, with an uncertainty of ∼14%. As more detections of b...
This study is designed to evaluate and verify the clinical accuracy of the InRhythm PT/INR system; a point-of-care, whole blood PT/INR measurement with a reference plasma based PT/INR usin...
There is widespread acceptance that air in intravenous (IV) fluid tubing (lines) can pose a significant risk to patients.1 A rigorous literature search regarding sources of this air identi...
This investigation examines the efficacy of a brief, one-session computerized interpretation bias modification paradigm (CBM-I) in the reduction of intolerance of uncertainty. Intolerance ...
Research with DXA has shown the pattern of bone remodelling around an implant. The baseline and reference value for such calculations is the first measurement after the operation. The base...
Using anonymized patient data collected as part of the WAPPS-Hemo project to explore the sources of variability in individual pharmacokinetics (PK); use the sources of variability to impro...
Carrying out of specific physical routines or procedures by one who is trained or skilled in physical activity. Performance is influenced by a combination of physiological, psychological, and socio-cultural factors.
The performance of surgical procedures with the aid of a microscope.
The range or frequency distribution of a measurement in a population (of organisms, organs or things) that has not been selected for the presence of disease or abnormality.
A genus of the family BUNYAVIRIDAE containing over 150 viruses, most of which are transmitted by mosquitoes or flies. They are arranged in groups defined by serological criteria, each now named for the original reference species (previously called serogroups). Many species have multiple serotypes or strains.
Levels of severity of illness within a diagnostic group which are established by various measurement criteria.
