ABSTRACT: INTRODUCTION: : Functional time-varying cardiac elastances (FTVE) contain a rich amount of information about the specific cardiac state of a patient. However, a FTVE waveform is very invasive to directly measure, and is thus currently not used in clinical practice. This paper presents a method for the estimation of a patient specific FTVE, using only metrics that are currently available in a clinical setting. METHOD: : Correlations are defined between invasively measured FTVE waveforms and the aortic and pulmonary artery pressures from 2 cohorts of porcine subjects, 1 induced with pulmonary embolism, the other with septic shock. These correlations are then used to estimate the FTVE waveform based on the individual aortic and pulmonary artery pressure waveforms, using the "other" dysfunction's correlations as a cross validation. RESULTS: : The cross validation resulted in 1.26% and 2.51% median errors for the left and right FTVE respectively on pulmonary embolism, while the septic shock cohort had 2.54% and 2.90% median errors. CONCLUSIONS: : The presented method accurately and reliably estimated a patient specific FTVE, with no added risk to the patient. The cross validation shows that the method is not dependent on dysfunction and thus has the potential for generalisation beyond pulmonary embolism and septic shock. [less ▲]

Introduction: Cardiac elastances are highly invasive to measure directly, but are clinically useful due tothe amount of information embedded in them. Information about the cardiac elastance, which can be used toestimate it, can be found in the downstream pressure waveforms of aortic pressure (Pao) and the pulmonaryartery (Ppa). However these pressure waveforms are typically noisy and biased, and require processing in orderto locate the specific information required for the cardiac elastance estimation. This paper presents the methodto algorithmically process the pressure waveforms. Methods: A shear transform is developed in order to helplocate information in the pressure waveforms. This transform turns difficult to locate corners into easy to locatemaximum or minimum points as well as providing error correction. Results: The method located all points 87out of 88 waveforms for Ppa to within the sampling frequency. For Pao, out of 616 total points, 605 were foundwithin 1%, 5 within 5%, 4 within 10% and 2 within 20%. Conclusions: The presented method provides arobust, accurate and dysfunction independent way to locate points on the aortic and pulmonary artery pressurewaveforms, allowing the non-invasive estimation of the left and right cardiac elastance.

L'évolution des coûts de santé en général, et hospitaliers en particulier, a conduit les autorités belges à prendre des mesures pour limiter les durées de séjour. Les hôpitaux étant à présent financés en fonction du nombre d'admissions et des pathologies correspondantes, l'usage d'un outil permettant d'estimer la proportion des admissions et des journées inappropriées, ainsi que leurs causes, est d'un intérêt majeur. Trois enquêtes transversales successives ont été menées de 2003 à 2005 dans 23 hôpitaux aigus en médecine interne, chirurgie et gériatrie. En tout, 12 000 séjours et 1 800 admissions ont ainsi été audités au moyen de l'Appropriateness Evaluation Protocol. [less ▲]

PURPOSE: The purpose of this article is to assess the reliability of an in-depth analysis on causation, preventability, and disability by two separate review teams on five selected adverse events in acute hospitals: pressure ulcer, postoperative pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis, postoperative sepsis, ventilator-associated pneumonia and postoperative wound infection. DESIGN/METHODOLOGY/APPROACH: The analysis uses a retrospective medical record review of 1,515 patient records by two independent teams in eight acute Belgian hospitals for the year 2005. The Mann-Whitney U-test is used to identify significant differences between the two review teams regarding occurrence of adverse events as well as regarding the degree of causation, preventability, and disability of found adverse events. FINDINGS: Team 1 stated a high probability for health care management causation in 95.5 per cent of adverse events in contrast to 38.9 per cent by Team 2. Likewise, high preventability was considered in 83.1 per cent of cases by Team 1 versus 51.7 per cent by Team 2. Significant differences in degree of disability between the two teams were also found for pressure ulcers, postoperative pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis and postoperative wound infection, but not for postoperative sepsis and ventilator-associated pneumonia. ORIGINALITY/VALUE: New insight on the degree of and reasons for the huge differences in adverse event evaluation is provided. [less ▲]
