  • Short and Long term predictions of Hospital emergency department attendances. [Journal Article]
    Int J Med Inform 2019; 129:167-174Jilani T, Housley G, … Shaw D
  • CONCLUSIONS: This paper described a heuristic-based fuzzy logic model for predicting emergency department attendances which could help resource allocation and reduce pressure on busy hospitals. Valid and reproducible prediction tools could be generated from these hospital data. The methodology had an acceptable accuracy over a relatively short time period, and could be used to assist better bed management, staffing and elective surgery scheduling. When compared to other prediction models usually applied for emergency department attendances prediction, the proposed heuristic model had better accuracy.
  • Using a general theory of implementation to plan the introduction of delirium prevention for older people in hospital. [Journal Article]
    J Nurs Manag 2019Grealish L, Chaboyer W, … Marshall AP
  • CONCLUSIONS: In addition to standard implementation strategies such as individual education and leadership, implementing delirium prevention requires consideration of team practices, review of policy document design, and identification of outcomes data than can support collaborative reflexive practice.The use of a theory-informed ethnographic approach exposed tensions that may be otherwise invisible. Understanding the tensions increases the likelihood of implementation success. Using a systematic assessment approach can create a comprehensive implementation plan.
  • Physical therapy in successful venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation bridge to orthotopic heart transplantation. [Case Reports]
    J Card Surg 2019Rinewalt D, Shudo Y, … Woo YJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: Early intensive physical rehabilitation is feasible and safe and may result in improved outcomes and expeditious discharge in VA ECMO patients. Protocol driven multidisciplinary physical therapy with a patient on femorally cannulated VA-ECMO retains the advantages of lower extremity peripheral cannulation while eliminating the risks of immobility. The new UNOS allocation system may result in a successful bridge to transplantation in patients on VA-ECMO due to the increased prioritization of this population to receive donor organs.
  • Use of machine learning to analyse routinely collected intensive care unit data: a systematic review. [Journal Article]
    Crit Care 2019; 23(1):284Shillan D, Sterne JAC, … Gibbison B
  • CONCLUSIONS: The rate of publication of studies using machine learning to analyse routinely collected ICU data is increasing rapidly. The sample sizes used in many published studies are too small to exploit the potential of these methods. Methodological and reporting guidelines are needed, particularly with regard to the choice of method and validation of predictions, to increase confidence in reported findings and aid in translating findings towards routine use in clinical practice.
  • SIGICAM: A New Software to Improve the Patient Care Supported by a Constraint-Based Model. [Journal Article]
    Stud Health Technol Inform 2019; 264:824-828Taramasco C, Olivares R
  • Health facilities are care centers that receive patients with different requirements. The management of patients falls to the clinical staff trained for this activity. However, given the demands of the population, the task of managing beds is sometimes too complicated when carried out manually. In this work, we propose the design and implementation of a technological platform that provides an imp…
