Disease relevance of Medical Records

  • To examine the role of heritable factors in insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), we studied the incidence of IDDM in the offspring of patients with the disease who were identified by the medical records of the Joslin Diabetes Center from 1928 to 1939 [1].
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: The medical records of gynecologic cancer patients with major cardiac risk factors who had been treated with paclitaxel (single-agent or combination regimen with cisplatin or carboplatin) at The Cleveland Clinic Foundation from 1993 through February 1998 were examined to determine the acute toxicity of therapy [2].
  • METHODS: Using the Rochester Epidemiology Project resources, medical records were screened to identify all Rochester, Minnesota residents with any SLE-associated diagnoses, discoid lupus, positivity for antinuclear antibodies, and/or false-positive syphilis test results determined between January 1, 1980 and December 31, 1992 [3].
  • METHODS: Among persons who had initiated antiretroviral therapy (ART), we studied the risk for OI following a VL measurement in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Adult and Adolescent Spectrum of HIV Disease (ASD) Project, a medical record review study of HIV-infected persons in 11 US cities [4].
  • To evaluate the relative cost, efficacy, and safety of early initiation of warfarin therapy, we reviewed the medical records of 38 patients with angiographically proven pulmonary embolism [5].

Psychiatry related information on Medical Records

  • METHOD: Medical records were reviewed retrospectively to identify consecutive patients who were admitted to our neuropsychiatry service with the presenting complaint of dementia (DSM-IV) with agitation and who were given intramuscular ziprasidone and then administered an electrocardiogram (ECG) (N = 23) [6].
  • DESIGN: Interviews with relatives, clinical investigations of the diseased, pedigree analysis, studies of medical records, and comparison with other families affected by Alzheimer's disease with amyloid precursor protein mutations [7].
  • Age, sex, medical comorbid conditions, previous AWS (including seizures and delirium tremens), duration of treatment for AWS, benzodiazepine use and dose, complications of AWS, and adverse outcomes of treatment during the incident admission were abstracted from the medical records of eligible patients [8].
  • CONCLUSION: Advance directives placed in the medical records of seriously ill patients often did not guide medical decision-making beyond naming a healthcare proxy or documenting general preferences in a standard living will format [9].
  • Delivery of gender neutral US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommended screening, health behavior counseling, and immunization services was assessed by direct observation and medical record review [10].

High impact information on Medical Records

  • We established the diagnosis of primary pulmonary hypertension by direct evaluation of patients and review of autopsy material and medical records [11].
  • METHODS: We identified patients hospitalized for excessive acetaminophen ingestion at an urban county hospital over a 40-month period (1992 to 1995) and reviewed their medical records to determine the incidence and clinical features of the ingestions and their outcomes [12].
  • Evidence of estrogen and other drug use and of selected medical conditions was obtained from three sources: medical records of the principal care facility, interviews, and the records of the local pharmacy [13].
  • DESIGN AND SETTING: Population-based cohort study conducted in Rochester, Minn. SUBJECTS: All children born in 1976-1982 were followed up through 1995, using school and medical records to identify those with ADHD [14].
  • DESIGN AND SETTING: Retrospective review of electronic medical records from a 220-bed tertiary care pediatric medical center in San Diego, Calif. PATIENTS: A total of 276 pediatric patients for whom a diagnostic EV-PCR test was performed during the calendar year 1998 [15].

Associations of Medical Records with chemical compounds

  • These persons were matched with the NYC AIDS case registry, and the medical records of nonmatching persons were reviewed to determine whether they met the 1987 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention surveillance case definition for AIDS [31].
  • A review was made of the medical records of 68 Wolfram syndrome patients, aged between 8 and 43 years, identified by casefinding throughout the USA [32].
  • MEASUREMENTS: Use of thiazide diuretics and furosemide was ascertained from medical records and computerized pharmacy records [33].
  • Treatment data included total dose of CNS irradiation (CRT) and intrathecal methotrexate (MTX) obtained from medical records [34].
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: We reviewed medical records, pathologic material, and imaging studies of all 139 NSCLC patients treated on one of three consecutive studies of gefitinib monotherapy performed at our institution [35].

Gene context of Medical Records

  • METHODS: Retrospective medical record review of 180 patients who were started on etanercept between December 1998 and April 2000 at an academic medical center [36].
  • ER and PR status was retrieved from medical records (80%) or was determined in the authors' laboratory (11%) but was missing for 9% of cases [37].
  • A review of medical records and mutational analyses of the PHEX and FGF23 genes were performed on 17 unrelated Korean children with HR [38].
  • Patient medical records were obtained to explore a possible association between biologic potential using Van Nuys Prognostic Index (VNPI) and HPR1 expression [39].
  • SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Thirty-seven episodes of haemostatic management of intraoral bleeding in 19 VWD patients were analysed retrospectively based on the medical records [40].
