Commerce vs. Science: A Perpetual Dialectic.


The Michigan Trauma Quality Improvement Program: Results from a collaborative quality initiative.

American College of Surgeons verified trauma centers and a third party payer within the state of Michigan built a regional collaborative quality initiative (CQI). The Michigan Trauma Quality Improvement Program began as a pilot in 2008 and expanded to a formal program in 2011. Here, we examine the performance of the collaborative over time with regard to patient outcomes, resource utilization, and process measures.

Wireless transmission of biosignals for hyperbaric chamber applications.

This paper presents a wireless system to send biosignals outside a hyperbaric chamber avoiding wires going through the chamber walls. Hyperbaric chambers are becoming more and more common due to new indications of hyperbaric oxygen treatments. Metallic walls physically isolate patients inside the chamber, where getting a patient's vital signs turns into a painstaking task. The paper proposes using a ZigBee-based network to wirelessly transmit the patient's biosignals to the outside of the chamber. In partic...

In 1973-1974, Michigan residents were exposed to polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs) through an accidental contamination of the food supply. Residents were enrolled in a registry assembled after the incident, and they and their children participated in follow-up studies to assess subsequent health outcomes.

Antimicrobial Drug-Resistant Shiga Toxin-Producing Escherichia coli Infections, Michigan, USA.

High frequencies of antimicrobial drug resistance were observed in O157 and non-O157 Shiga toxin-producing E. coli strains recovered from patients in Michigan during 2010-2014. Resistance was more common in non-O157 strains and independently associated with hospitalization, indicating that resistance could contribute to more severe disease outcomes.

Capsular bag irrigation using 0.025% povidone-iodine in balanced salt solution PLUS for the treatment of postoperative endophthalmitis.

We examined the effectiveness and adverse events of using balanced salt solution (BSS) PLUS containing 0.025% povidone-iodine, a non-oculotoxic concentration, for capsular bag irrigation in a case of endophthalmitis mainly involving the anterior chamber. A 57-year-old female underwent cataract surgery and developed hypopyon on day 3 after surgery, with mainly anterior chamber inflammation. The capsular bag was irrigated with BSS PLUS containing 0.025% povidone-iodine. Gram-negative rods were detected from t...

Feasibility of the use of a pixelated transmission chamber to measure scattered-radiation in projection radiography: I. Monte Carlo analysis of x-ray scatter propagation and detector modeling.

In this paper, we propose the use of a pixelated transmission chamber, placed between the patient and the imaging detector, to measure the scatter component of a radiation beam impinging on said imaging detector. Using Monte Carlo simulation, a three-parameter model for the propagation of the scatter component in the transmitted beam is first developed. The use of the transmission chamber to determine the model parameters is then modeled, again using Monte Carlo simulation, and the feasibility of this appro...

Challenges of Using Probabilistic Linkage Methodology to Characterize Post-Cardiac Arrest Care in Michigan.

To improve survival of patients resuscitated from out of hospital cardiac arrest (OCHA), data is needed to assess and improve inpatient post-resuscitation care. Our objective was to apply probabilistic linkage methodology to link EMS and inpatient databases and evaluate whether it may be used to describe post-arrest care in Michigan.

Using medically-derived iodine-131 to track sewage effluent in the Laurentian Great Lakes.

Tracking sewage wastewater in a large lake is difficult. Concentrations of pharmaceuticals that can be used as indicator compounds are quickly diluted and not easy to measure. In this study, we examined the potential of using medically-derived iodine-131 ((131)I, t½ = 8.02 d) as a tracer for Milwaukee sewage effluent in Lake Michigan. (131)I activities in sewage effluent from two Milwaukee wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) were measured in conjunction with (131)I activities in water, sediment and biot...

Effect of a Clinical and Translational Science Award institute on grant funding in a major research university.

Previous studies have examined the impact of Clinical and Translational Science Awards programs on other outcomes, but not on grant seeking. The authors examined the effects on grant seeking of the Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR), a Clinical and Translational Science Awards institute at the University of Michigan.

Increased resource utilization and overall morbidity are associated with general versus regional anesthesia for carotid endarterectomy in data collected by the Michigan Surgical Quality Collaborative.

Advocates for performing carotid endarterectomy (CEA) under regional anesthesia (RA) cite reduction in hemodynamic instability and the ability for neurologic monitoring, but many still prefer general anesthesia (GA) as benefits of RA have not been clearly demonstrated, reliable RA may not be available in all centers, and a certain amount of movement by the patient during the procedure may not be uniformly tolerated. We evaluated the association of anesthesia type and perioperative morbidity and mortality as...

Using a new plateau hyperbaric chamber to alleviate high altitude hypoxia: Rabbit and human studies.

To validate the effects of the new plateau hyperbaric chamber on alleviating high altitude hypoxia on Mount Kun Lun.

Sensory evaluation and chemical analysis of exhaled and dermally-emitted bioeffluents.

Conditions in which exhaled and dermally-emitted bioeffluents could be sampled separately or together (whole-body emission) were created. Five lightly-dressed males exhaled the air through a mask to another, identical chamber or without a mask to the chamber in which they were sitting; the outdoor air supply rate was the same in both chambers. The carbon dioxide concentration in the chamber with exhaled air was 2,000 ppm. Chamber temperatures were 23°C or 28°C and ozone was present or absent in the supply...

A Bayesian procedure for estimating the causal effects of nursing home bed-hold policy.

Nursing home bed-hold policies provide continuity of care for Medicaid beneficiaries by paying nursing homes to reserve beds so residents can return to their facility of occupancy following an acute hospitalization. In 2001, Michigan implemented bed-hold policies in nursing homes. We investigated the impact of these policies on mortality and hospitalizations using 1999-2004 quarterly data from nursing homes in Michigan and nursing homes in 11 states that did not implement such policies. Synthetic Control ha...

In situ benthic flow-through chambers to determine sediment-to-water fluxes of legacy hydrophobic organic contaminants.

Contaminated sediment can release hydrophobic organic contaminants (HOCs) and thereby act as a secondary source of primarily legacy hazardous substances to the water column. There is therefore a need for assessments of the release of HOCs from contaminated sediment for prioritization of management actions. In situ assessment of HOC sediment-to-water flux is currently done with (closed) benthic flux chambers, which have a sampling time exceeding one month. During this time, the water inside the chamber is de...
