Donath, M.A., and Peter G. Davis, M.D.: High-Movement Nasal Cannulae in Extremely Preterm Infants after Extubation In the usa, 75 approximately,000 infants were classified as extremely preterm in 2011.1 Very preterm infants possess higher mortality and morbidity than term infants substantially, partly because they’re more susceptible to respiratory failure and often require mechanical ventilation through an endotracheal tube after birth. After they get over their acute difficulty in breathing, the best way to achieve effective extubation from mechanical ventilation is normally controversial.
So EHRs will be only as good as the quality metrics they’re designed to catch; technology can’t conquer fundamental measurement problems. We measure a lot of things that have no worth to patients, while a lot of what sufferers do value, including our attention, remains unmeasurable. Why, Wachter asks, perform we do nothing very similar in health care? In a moving passage, Wachter speaks with a famous surgeon who once spent his evenings before surgery reading his notes on the next day’s patients. No longer. His notes have been rendered homogeneous by the tyranny of clicks and auto-populated fields uselessly. I cannot actually picture their faces.
