High impact information on Hospitals, Urban

  • METHODS: Consecutive adult medical admissions to a large city hospital in Côte d'Ivoire were studied in 1991, and a sample of HIV-positive deaths autopsied [6].
  • In 1980, the Boston City Hospital pharmacy made a bulk purchase of a brand of warfarin sodium that was different from the brand previously stocked [7].
  • CONCLUSIONS: When treatment guidelines are carefully followed in an urban hospital setting, intravenous t-PA for acute ischemic stroke is feasible and shows safety and efficacy comparable to the results of the NINDS study [8].
  • The study population consisted of 21 insulin-resistant and 25 insulin-sensitive black NIDDM patients and 89 normal, nondiabetic black control subjects from an urban hospital [9].
  • This same proportion with an elevated thiamin pyrophosphate effect was found in an urban hospital patient group of 346 individuals [10].

  • A rapid cocaine screening test, the Abuscreen OnTrak assay, was compared with the EMIT (enzyme-multiplied immunoassay technique) screening test to determine relative accuracy in 450 newborn infants sequentially tested for urinary cocaine during a 6-week period at a large urban hospital [36].
  • In the summer of 1988, dose-finding phase 1 trials of the efficacy and safety of didanosine were begun by investigators at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), by the AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG) at New York University School of Medicine and the University of Rochester School of Medicine, and by researchers at Boston City Hospital (BCH) [37].
  • In a 60-week cross-over study on 5536 patients in 20 wards of three city hospitals (two general and one orthopaedic), pre-operative bathing with chlorhexidine-detergent failed to influence the incidence of postoperative infection, in spite of the relatively high incidence of infection with skin organisms [38].
  • Moreover, since 1994 young Italian doctors from the University of Trieste, Italy, enrolled in the School of Specialization in Anesthesia, Intensive Care, have received training at the Service of Hyperbaric Medicine of the University of Reykjavik City Hospital, as part of their training [39].
  • Wrist braces with, and without, thumb extensions (so-called "Futura" splints) were introduced into the Emergency Departments of Cork City Hospitals in July 2001 [40].
