Predicting Outpatient Appointment Demand Using Machine Learning and Traditional Methods.

Traditional methods have long been used for clinical demand forecasting. Machine learning methods represent the next evolution in forecasting, but model choice and optimization remain challenging for achieving optimal results. To determine the best method to predict demand for outpatient appointments comparing machine learning and traditional methods, this retrospective study analyzed "appointment requests" at a major outpatient department in a destination medical center. Two separate locations (A and B) we...

Unbiased groupwise registration for shape prediction of foot scans.

A graph-based groupwise shape registration algorithm for building statistical shape model (SSM) is proposed, which has been successfully applied to shape prediction of foot scans. Establishing unbiased and effective shape correspondences of large-scale data sets is extremely challenging, for the inappropriate selection of initial mean shape and non-rigid registration of shape with large-scale deformation. To address these issues, first, we use a simplified graph to model the shape distribution in metric spa...

Caries risk assessment is defined as the probability of new caries lesion development or the existing lesion progression in a given time period. Caries diagnostics and risk factor assessment are followed by targeted elimination of risk factors and less conservative but abundant preventive therapeutic measures. The aim of o...

Medical Costs of Patients with Type 2 Diabetes in a Single Payer System: A Classification and Regression Tree Analysis.

Many studies and systematic reviews have estimated the healthcare costs of diabetes using a cost-of-illness approach. However, in the studies based on this approach patients' heterogeneity is rarely taken into account. The aim of this study was to stratify patients with type 2 diabetes into homogeneous cost groups based on demographic and clinical characteristics.

Efficient and Reliable Assessment of the Maximum Local Tissue Temperature Increase at the Electrodes of Medical Implants under MRI Exposure.

Standard risk evaluations posed by medical implants during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) includes (i) the assessment of the total local electromagnetic (EM) power (P) absorbed in the vicinity of the electrodes and (ii) the translation of P into a local in vivo tissue temperature increase ∆T (P2∆T) in animal experiments or simulations. We investigated the implant/tissue modeling requirements and associated uncertainties by applying full-wave EM and linear bioheat solvers to different implant models, i...

Use of Continuous Subcutaneous Insulin Infusion (CSII) Therapy in Pediatric Diabetes Patients in the Perioperative Period.

Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common endocrinopathies encountered in the perioperative period, and the pediatric population is increasingly using continuous subcutaneous insulin infusions for diabetes management. As these patients present for procedures or surgery requiring anesthesia, the anesthesia provider is charged with the task of managing these pumps perioperatively. Here we review our experience from a large tertiary care academic medical center and propose recommendations for the perioperati...

Effect of vagus nerve stimulation on blood glucose concentration in epilepsy patients - Importance of stimulation parameters.

In previous animal experiments, we demonstrated that cervical vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) inhibits pancreatic insulin secretion, thereby raises blood glucose levels, and impairs glucose tolerance through afferent signaling. However, there are no reports suggesting that similar effects occur in patients treated with chronic cervical VNS for epilepsy. In contrast to clinical VNS used for epilepsy, where the stimulation is intermittent with cycles of on and off periods, stimulation was continuous in our prev...

New insight into isolation, identification techniques and medical applications of exosomes.

Exosomes, which are nano-vesicles produced by most cell types, play an irreplaceable role in cell-cell communication. They are extracellular small vesicles that can delivery various cargos of DNA, RNAs, proteins, and lipids. Because exosomes have different secretory components under physiological conditions and pathological conditions, it has been extensively studied in the field of diseases as a therapeutic target, as a drug/gene delivery vector and as a novel cancer marker. Despite the great development i...

Skeletal muscle atrogenes: from rodent models to human pathologies.

Skeletal muscle atrophy is a common side effect of most human diseases. Muscle loss is not only detrimental for the quality of life but it also dramatically impairs physiological processes of the organism and decreases the efficiency of medical treatments. While hypothesized for years, the existence of an atrophying programme common to all pathologies is still incompletely solved despite the discovery of several actors and key regulators of muscle atrophy. More than a decade ago, the discovery of a set of g...

The utility of next generation sequencing in the correct diagnosis of congenital hypochloremic hypokalemic metabolic alkalosis.

Persistent hypokalemic hypochloremic metabolic alkalosis represents a heterogeneous group of genetic disorders of which the most common is Bartter syndrome (BS). BS is an inherited renal tubulopathy caused by defective salt reabsorption in the thick ascending loop of Henle, which results in persistent hypokalemic hypochloremic metabolic alkalosis. Here we report a 10-year-old girl of a consanguineous family. She presented prenatally with severe polyhydramnios and distended bowel loops. Thereafter, she displ...
