Congestion in acute heart failure (AHF) affects survival curves and hospital length of stay (LOS). The evaluation of congestion, however, is not totally objective. The aim of this study was to verify the accuracy of bioelectrical impedance vector analysis (BIVA) in predicting the LOS in AHF patients.

The length of stay among psychiatric in-patients is usually longer than that of others. In-patient management is costly and longer length of stay can lead to catastrophic costs. We conducted this stud...
Hospital length-of-Stay has been traditionally used as a surrogate to evaluate healthcare efficiency, as well as hospital resource utilization. Prolonged Length-of-stay (PLOS) is associated with incre...
Sevoflurane inhalation sedation could shorten the duration of endotracheal intubation and the total length of hospital stay of critical patients after surgery as compared with propofol intravenous sedation: a Meta-analysis of 537 patients.
To compare the influence of sevoflurane inhalation sedation and propofol intravenous sedation on duration of endotracheal intubation as well as the length of intensive care unit (ICU) stay and total l...
Hypertriglyceridaemia is one of the most common causes of severe acute pancreatitis (SAP). However, the association between elevated triglycerides (TG) level in hospital stay and outcome in SAP patien...
We aimed to investigate major adverse cardiac events (MACE: defined as all-cause mortality, reinfarction and stroke), length of hospital stays and comorbidities following acute coronary syndrome (ACS)...
Although monitoring fluid balance for continuous renal replacement therapy-treated patients is an important issue, most physicians usually use conventional methods such as the difference b...
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy in acute sickle cell pain crisis. The purpose of this study is to explore if hyperbaric oxygen therapy would decrease hospital length of stay and pain associated ...
The primary aim of the study is to evaluate consequences of frailty in critically ill patients. We hypothesize that a higher frailty index (based on published questionnaires) predicts a lo...
The aim of this study was to evaluate, in patients with "lower fluid status" defined by bioimpedance analysis, whether two different protocol of IV isotonic saline infusion are associated ...
The purpose of the study is to determine whether an antimicrobial stewardship program can decrease the length of hospital stay for patients with pneumonia. The antimicrobial stewardship p...
The period of confinement of a patient to a hospital or other health facility.
A system for classifying patient care by relating common characteristics such as diagnosis, treatment, and age to an expected consumption of hospital resources and length of stay. Its purpose is to provide a framework for specifying case mix and to reduce hospital costs and reimbursements and it forms the cornerstone of the prospective payment system.
In health care reimbursement, especially in the prospective payment system, those patients who require an unusually long hospital stay or whose stay generates unusually high costs.
The presence of co-existing or additional diseases with reference to an initial diagnosis or with reference to the index condition that is the subject of study. Comorbidity may affect the ability of affected individuals to function and also their survival; it may be used as a prognostic indicator for length of hospital stay, cost factors, and outcome or survival.
The detection of RESTRICTION FRAGMENT LENGTH POLYMORPHISMS by selective PCR amplification of restriction fragments derived from genomic DNA followed by electrophoretic analysis of the amplified restriction fragments.
