- Particularizing the picture: Features and uses of instantiation stories told by clinicians doing autism diagnosisby Lucas Z Wiscons on July 2, 2022
Diagnosis is the narrative process through which professional clinicians transform experiences of illness and disability into disease (Hunter, 1991; Jutel, 2009; Kleinman et al., 1978). Maynard and Turowetz (2017a) found that the narrative structure for autism diagnosis consists of two primary story types concerning the conduct of children under assessment: (1) tendency stories about propensities or quantifications of behavior, and (2) instantiation stories that describe single instances of...
- Using machine learning to improve diagnostic assessment of ASD in the light of specific differential and co-occurring diagnosesby Martin Schulte-Rüther on July 1, 2022
CONCLUSIONS: ML-based diagnostic classification may improve clinical decisions by utilizing the full range of information from detailed diagnostic observation instruments such as the ADOS. Importantly, this strategy might be of particular relevance for older children with less severe symptoms for whom the diagnostic decision is often particularly difficult.
- The agitated pediatric patient located in the emergency department: The APPLIED observational studyby Matthias M Manuel on June 30, 2022
CONCLUSION: Prevalence of acute agitation and restraint use in pediatric EDs may be much higher than previously reported. Predictors of acute agitation and restraint use among MBH patients were consistent with prior reports. Restrained agitated patients had longer ED LOS and higher admission rates.
- Global Research Trends in Tendon Stem Cells from 1991 to 2020: A Bibliometric and Visualized Studyby Huibin Long on June 29, 2022
CONCLUSION: Publications on tendon stem cells may reached a platform based on current global trends. According to the inherent changes of hotspots in each cluster and the possibilities of cross-research, the research in tendon stem cells may exist a balanced development trend.
