Disease relevance of Patient Rights


Psychiatry related information on Patient Rights


High impact information on Patient Rights

  • Approximately 20 seconds after adenosine infusion into a vein in the patient's right arm, a 2.2-second pause developed, followed by ventricular flutter and then fibrillation [7].
  • American Academy of Pediatrics. Pediatric Practice Action Group and Task Force on Medical Informatics. Privacy protection and health information: patient rights and pediatrician responsibilities [8].
  • The Medical Event Reporting System for Transfusion Medicine: will it help get the right blood to the right patient [9]?
  • METHODS: Each patient's right and left hands were randomized to receive either a 3-week course of topical 5-FU applied twice per day or PDT using topical 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) and then, after 4 hours, irradiation with an incoherent light source consisting of a 1200 W metal halogen lamp emitting red light (580 to 740 nm) [10].
  • RESULTS: Of the respondents 84% supported a family's right to withdraw life support from a patient in a persistent coma, and 90% supported a mentally competent patient's right to request that life support be withdrawn [11].

Biological context of Patient Rights


Associations of Patient Rights with chemical compounds


Gene context of Patient Rights

  • RESULTS: The shorter/longer CMCT between the patients' right and left ADM and AH were 8.5+/-2.9/11.5+/-3.3 and 16.2+/-3.1/18.4+/-3.3 ms, respectively (mean+/-SD) [19].
  • The data suggest that in cardiac transplant patients right atrial pressure does not have a primary role in releasing ANP [20].
  • The core of this CMS is the electronic health record (EHR), which aims to assure both the patients' right to know, and the attendants' accountability [21].
  • On the Halstead-Reitan Finger Tapping Test, over 60% of the AD patients exhibited notable departures from expected finger tapping asymmetry; 26% displayed an exaggerated right hand tapping advantage (ASYM RIGHT patients) and 37% showed a reversal of expected asymmetry (left hand speed equal to or greater than right hand speed, ASYM LEFT patients) [22].
  • Current trends in the NHS promote patient rights including the right to accept or refuse surgery [23].
