Disease relevance of Referral and Consultation


High impact information on Referral and Consultation

  • SETTING: Large, urban, university-affiliated referral hospital [6].
  • RESULTS: Smoothed, unadjusted rates of left ventricular ejection fraction documentation ranged from 30.1% to 67.2% and of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor prescription from 55.8% to 87.1% among hospital referral regions; regional patterns were apparent [7].
  • SETTING: A tertiary care referral hospital and a major teaching affiliate of Tufts University School of Medicine, Boston, Mass. RESULTS: Of 29 consecutive patients enrolled, 17 (19 limbs) completed the 6 months of study [8].
  • SETTING: A university hospital referral setting INTERVENTION: Patients were generally treated for 8 weeks with tetrathiomolybdate, followed by zinc maintenance therapy [9].
  • METHODS: Patients with luminal IBD under the care of a gastroenterologist who sought a a second opinion at Brigham and Women's Hospital between January 2001 and April 2003 were enrolled in this study [10].

Chemical compound and disease context of Referral and Consultation


Biological context of Referral and Consultation


Anatomical context of Referral and Consultation

  • SETTING: Tikur Anbessa teaching and referral hospital, Department of Pathology, Faculty of Medicine, Addis Ababa University. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of five years biopsy material from patients with thyroid disease [19].

Associations of Referral and Consultation with chemical compounds

  • We aggregated risk-adjusted data on the 143,202 patients who survived through 1999 by Hospital Referral Region and merged this data with information on local physician supply and other regional characteristics [20].
  • Second opinion on brevital [21].
  • A second opinion about thyroid hormone treatment [22].
  • METHODS: Two hundred consecutive patients undergoing diagnostic methacholine challenges in the pulmonary function laboratory of a tertiary-care, university-based referral hospital were studied [23].
  • To observe the incidence of complications in severely hyponatraemic hospitalized patients and relate outcome to rate of correction, all patients admitted to a tertiary referral hospital in New York City, USA or a group of hospitals in Oxford, UK with a sodium < or = 120 mmol/l were studied [24].
