Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A respiratory support system used to remove mucus and clear airway by oscillating pressure on the chest.

Computer-based information systems used to integrate clinical and patient information and provide support for decision-making in patient care.

Ventilatory support system using frequencies from 60-900 cycles/min or more. Three types of systems have been distinguished on the basis of rates, volumes, and the system used. They are high frequency positive-pressure ventilation (HFPPV); HIGH-FREQUENCY JET VENTILATION; (HFJV); and high-frequency oscillation (HFO).

The initial life support care of the severely injured patient.

Method in which repeated blood pressure readings are made while the patient undergoes normal daily activities. It allows quantitative analysis of the high blood pressure load over time, can help distinguish between types of HYPERTENSION, and can assess the effectiveness of antihypertensive therapy.
