Catastrophic APS in the context of other thrombotic microangiopathies.
Barcelona, Spain. In Curr Rheumatol Rep, 2015
Thus, the differential diagnosis of an aPL-positive patient presenting with a microthrombotic storm is broad; the workup should include a special attention to signs of infection and disseminated malignant disease, assessing the funduscopic signs of malignant hypertension, testing ADAMTS13 activity and anti-heparin-platelet factor 4 (HPF4) antibodies, and searching previous exposure to certain drugs.
Mining Clinical Data using Minimal Predictive Rules.
Pittsburgh, United States. In Amia Annu Symp Proc, 2009
We develop an algorithm to efficiently mine these MPRs and apply it to predict Heparin Platelet Factor 4 antibody (HPF4) test orders from electronic health records.
Conditional anomaly detection methods for patient-management alert systems.
In Proc Int Conf Mach Learn, 2008
We show the benefits of the instance-based methods on two real-world detection problems: detection of unusual admission decisions for patients with the community-acquired pneumonia and detection of unusual orders of an HPF4 test that is used to confirm Heparin induced thrombocytopenia - a life-threatening condition caused by the Heparin therapy.
