To examine methodological characteristics about design and conduct in prognostic prediction models used for obstetric care.
For patients receiving palliative care, information about prognosis is important to help them set priorities and expectations for care and to assist clinicians in decision-making. The purpose of this ...
The 2017 Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) recommends regular bronchodilator therapy in all group A patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a leading cause of mortality, therefore the prediction of mortality in COPD patients is crucial. In the current study, the abilities of different catego...
To uncover what is known about nurse-led models or interventions that have integrated palliative care into the care of patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
The objective of this proposal is to develop and validate diagnostic and prognostic (including short-term and long-term prognoses) prediction models for patients with venous thromboembolis...
HBV‐related acute‐on‐chronic liver failure (HBV‐ACLF) deteriorates rapidly with a high short-term mortality, for which liver transplantation is the only confirmed and effective tre...
This study compares the efficacy of scoring models used in delirium prediction in patients applying to intensive care unit. The diagnosis of delirium is based on the Intensive Care Deliriu...
GSK233705 is a high-affinity specific muscarinic receptor (mAChR) antagonist which is being developed for once daily treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The long du...
Stroke-associated pneumonia (SAP) constitutes a clinically relevant complication of stroke, because it increases the mortality and has a negative impact on the neurological prognosis of th...
A subcategory of CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE. The disease is characterized by hypersecretion of mucus accompanied by a chronic (more than 3 months in 2 consecutive years) productive cough. Infectious agents are a major cause of chronic bronchitis.
A disease of chronic diffuse irreversible airflow obstruction. Subcategories of COPD include CHRONIC BRONCHITIS and PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA.
A condition associated with multiple episodes of sleep apnea which are distinguished from obstructive sleep apnea (SLEEP APNEA, OBSTRUCTIVE) by the complete cessation of efforts to breathe. This disorder is associated with dysfunction of central nervous system centers that regulate respiration. This condition may be idiopathic (primary) or associated with lower brain stem lesions; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (LUNG DISEASES, OBSTRUCTIVE); HEART FAILURE, CONGESTIVE; medication effect; and other conditions. Sleep maintenance is impaired, resulting in daytime hypersomnolence. Primary central sleep apnea is frequently associated with obstructive sleep apnea. When both forms are present the condition is referred to as mixed sleep apnea (see SLEEP APNEA SYNDROMES). (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p395; Neurol Clin 1996;14(3):611-28)
Methods to determine in patients the nature of a disease or disorder at its early stage of progression. Generally, early diagnosis improves PROGNOSIS and TREATMENT OUTCOME.
Usually refers to the use of mathematical models in the prediction of learning to perform tasks based on the theory of probability applied to responses; it may also refer to the frequency of occurrence of the responses observed in the particular study.
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is used for a number of conditions including chronic bronchitis and emphysema, which all lead to the airways in the lungs becoming damaged and thus narrower, making inhalation and exhalation harder...
