Medical Device Data for Clinical Decision Making 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Are you a professional who wants to learn more on how to develop original methods for communicating with medical devices? If you are, then this book is for you. Author John R. Zaleski (Author), has done an outstanding job of writing a book that guides readers in the implementation and use of clinical decision support methods within the context of electronic health records in the hospital environment. Zaleski, begins this book by providing a generalized overview and introduction to modeling and simulation. Next, the author explores the modeling of systems using various techniques, including Monte Carlo and discrete event simulation with specific, worked examples. Then, he focuses on the use of automatic control systems theory in the modeling of control and stability of physical systems. In addition, the author discusses modeling of physiological and mechanical systems through analogies in fluid mechanics and electrical systems. He also discusses point-of-care biomedical device interoperability and the use of biomedical data in the creation of models. Finally, the author presents some examples of the use of biomedical device data to develop system models that can be used to assist in clinical decision making at the bedside. This most excellent book discusses key concepts in detail. More importantly, this book presents clear implementation examples to give professionals a complete understanding of how to use this knowledge in the field.
