Abstract:

Abstract: Data were collected at the University Hospital of Kigali (CHUK) in a total of 201 HIV-positive hospitalised patients with chronic cough. We simulated management of each patient following the three algorithms. The first was locally tailored by clinicians from CHUK, the second and third were drawn from publications by Médecins sans Frontières (MSF) and the World Health Organisation (WHO). Semantic analysis techniques known as Clinical Algorithm Nosology were used to compare them in terms of complexity and similarity. For each of them, we assessed the sensitivity, delay to diagnosis and hypothetical harm of false positives and false negatives.The principal diagnoses were tuberculosis (21%) and pneumocystosis (19%). Sensitivity, representing the proportion of correct diagnoses made by each algorithm, was 95.7%, 88% and 70% for CHUK, MSF and WHO, respectively. Mean time to appropriate management was 1.86 days for CHUK and 3.46 for the MSF algorithm. The CHUK algorithm was the most complex, followed by MSF and WHO. Total harm was by far the highest for the WHO algorithm, followed by MSF and CHUK.This study confirms our hypothesis that sensitivity and patient safety (i.e. less expected harm) are proportional to the complexity of algorithms, though increased complexity may make them difficult to use in practice.The algorithmic approach to guidelines has been introduced and promoted on a large scale since the 1970s. This flowchart representation of step-by-step clinical logic guides the management of a patient with symptoms, clinical signs, or results of technical examinations. The transition from one step to the next is mostly dichotomous, which means that only one out of two choices can be made at each step. Moreover, the logic is serial: only one pathway can be followed by a single patient.The original purpose of algorithmic guideline implementation was twofold. First, with continuing concern over the rising costs of health care, health policy makers have been impressed b

Prácticas y debates socio-jurídicos en torno al lugar de los ni?os en el espacio familiar y social: Postrimerías del siglo xix
Bisig,Nidia Elinor del Carmen;
Revista Opinión Jurídica , 2009,
Abstract: this article develops an overall view on the relationship among historical-social phenomena, ideologies, and legislation about childhood. the article describes methods used in procedures for children protection and carries out a critical analysis about the discursive construction of the abandoned/delinquent, after sanction of civil code by the end of the xix century and until early xx century, when specific laws were demanded in the whole country. through an analysis of ph.d. thesis and other historical sources, and making emphasis on córdoba province (argentina), the article accounts for ideological perspectives and debates which legitimated features, approaches, modalities, and logic of state intervention, which were then legalized by advising and juridical institutions which supported protection of abandoned children, creating a culture of criminalization and for airing in court social problems which has had legitimacy until today.
Prácticas y debates socio-jurídicos en torno al lugar de los ni os en el espacio familiar y social - Postrimerías del siglo xix-
Nidia Elinor del Carmen Bisig
Revista Opinión Jurídica , 2009,
Abstract: Este trabajo desarrolla una visión de conjunto sobre la relación entre fenómenoshistórico-sociales, ideologías y legislación acerca de la infancia. Describe lasmodalidades en las prácticas de protección a la infancia y realiza un análisiscrítico acerca de la construcción discursiva del abandonado/delincuente, posteriora la sanción del Código civil a fines del siglo XIX hasta comienzos delsiglo XX, cuando se demandan leyes específicas a escala nacional. Medianteel análisis de tesis doctorales y otras fuentes históricas, poniendo énfasis enla provincia de Córdoba Argentina, da cuenta de las perspectivas ideológicasy los debates que en el campo intelectual y académico legitimaron las características,enfoques, modalidades y lógica de la intervención estatal, que seformaliza posteriormente mediante instituciones asistenciales y jurídicas queenmarcaron la protección de la infancia abandonada; configurando una culturade judicialización y criminalización de los problemas sociales que goza, hastael presente, de una fuerte legitimidad.
Tunable steady-state domain wall oscillator with perpendicular magnetic anisotropy
A. Bisig,O. Boulle,M. Klaui
Physics , 2009, DOI: 10.1063/1.3238314
Abstract: We theoretically study domain wall oscillations upon the injection of a dc current through a geometrically constrained wire with perpendicular magnetic anisotropy. The oscillation frequency spectrum can be tuned by the injected current density, but additionally by the application of an external magnetic field independent of the power. The results of analytical calculations are supported by micromagnetic simulations based on the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation. The simple concept of our localized steady-state oscillator might prove useful as a nanoscale microwave generator with possible applications in telecommunication or for rf-assisted writing in magnetic hard drives.
Política y suciedad. Concepciones y prácticas gubernamentales en torno a la limpieza y la salubridad en el Buenos Aires colonial: (1740-1776)
Sidy,Bettina;
Memoria americana , 2011,
Abstract: this paper analyzes the measures civil servants tried to implement in the city of buenos aires during 1740-1776 in order to improve the urban cleanliness. the subject will be approached taking into account the ideological and scientific positions that shaped the orders issued, and also the different devices implemented to enforce them. by studying these topics, we will be able to rethink the different representations an ideal city should reach in the eighteenth century. additionally, the measures taken could be placed in a larger scenario of political interests to observe their impact in daily life.
