Epidemiology and Determinants of Short-Term Outcome in Critically Ill Patients With Near-Hanging Injury

2019-09-25 06:13:29 | BioPortfolio


Near-Hanging is a catastrophic event that has been merely studied in the literature. We aimed to report the outcomes, and early predictors of hospital survivors in critically ill patients with near-hanging.

Patients admitted to 31 university or university-affiliated participating ICUs in France and Belgium between 1992 and 2014 were studied retrospectively. Hospital survival was the main judgment criterion.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Procedures for finding the mathematical function which best describes the relationship between a dependent variable and one or more independent variables. In linear regression (see LINEAR MODELS) the relationship is constrained to be a straight line and LEAST-SQUARES ANALYSIS is used to determine the best fit. In logistic regression (see LOGISTIC MODELS) the dependent variable is qualitative rather than continuously variable and LIKELIHOOD FUNCTIONS are used to find the best relationship. In multiple regression, the dependent variable is considered to depend on more than a single independent variable.

Methods used to take into account and incorporate spatial autocorrelation and regional variation into regression analysis models of data that has spatial dependency, and also to provide information on the spatial relationships among the variables.

Fleshy and reddish outgrowth of skin tissue found on top of the head, attached to the sides of the head, and hanging from the mandible of birds such as turkeys and chickens.

The sour gum plant family of the order Nymphaeales, subclass Magnoliidae, class Magnoliopsida. All have horizontal or hanging branches and broad alternate leaves, and they are dioecious (male and female flowers on different plants).

Statistical models which describe the relationship between a qualitative dependent variable (that is, one which can take only certain discrete values, such as the presence or absence of a disease) and an independent variable. A common application is in epidemiology for estimating an individual's risk (probability of a disease) as a function of a given risk factor.
