PECLA | iLA | pECLAPECLA - Pumpless extracorporeal lung assist - (i) Pumpless interventional lung assist (iLA) is used in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) aimed at improving extracorporeal gas exchange with a membrane integrated in a passive arteriovenous shunt. (ii) pECLA is a promising alternative compared with conventional pump-driven systems for patients with ARDS and brain injury, since the pECLA system has minor restrictions, limitations and side effects.
TRDTRD - Tongue-retaining devices - The tongue-retaining device is a customized monobloc oral appliance used in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS).
OSAHSOSAHS - Obstructive sleep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome - OSAHS is a syndrome associated with characteristic clinical picture and specific abnormalities on assessment. In OSAHS, there is repetitive collapse of the upper airway, which may be either partial or total resulting in hypopnea or apnea, respectively; during sleep, it occurs more than five times per hour (apnea–hypopnea index (AHI)).
DGFDGF - Delayed graft function - Delayed graft function is a form of acute renal failure resulting in post-transplantation oliguria, increased allograft immunogenicity and risk of acute rejection episodes, and decreased long-term survival.
PNFPNF - Primary non-function - PNF means total and irreversible loss of function after transplantation - (i) Islet primary nonfunction (PNF) is defined as the loss of islet function after transplantation for reasons other than graft rejection. (ii) Primary nonfunction (PNF) after liver transplantation is life threatening. Future investigations to improve survival among liver transplant recipients with PNF are essential.
COSICOSI - Client Oriented Scale of Improvement - In the Client Oriented Scale of Improvement (COSI) method, the client effectively writes the self-report questionnaire by nominating up to five listening situations in which help with hearing is required.
CTCCTC - Computed tomographic colonography - CT colonography, also known as virtual colonoscopy, uses low dose radiation CT scanning to obtain an interior view of the colon (the large intestine) that is otherwise only seen with a more invasive procedure where an endoscope is inserted into the rectum and passed through the entire colon.
IGRTIGRT - Image-guided radiotherapy - Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) is the use of frequent imaging during a course of radiation therapy for the purpose of improving the precision and accuracy of the delivery of treatment.
CE-CCTCE-CCT - Contrast enhanced coronary computed tomography - (CECT) Contrast agents are used during contrast enhanced computed (or computerized) tomography examinations to highlight specific tissues and parts of the body.
FMFM - Frequency modulation - FM is a common form of radio transmission. FM is one of several wireless technologies that transmit sounds directly to a hard of hearing person for optimal clarity and better understanding.
TNMTNM - Classification of Malignant Tumours - The classification of cancer by anatomic disease extent, i.e. stage, is the major determinant of appropriate treatment and prognosis. Stage is an increasingly important component of cancer surveillance and cancer control and an endpoint for the evaluation of the population-based screening and early detection efforts.
RVOTRVOT - Right ventricular outflow tract - (i) The right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) is an infundibular extension of the ventricular cavity which connects to the pulmonary artery. (ii) The RVOT is an important anatomical feature in many corrective surgeries for congenital heart defects and dilation of the RVOT can cause pulmonary valve insufficiency.
EFMEFM - Electronic fetal monitoring - Electronic fetal heart monitoring (EFHM) is done during pregnancy, labor, and delivery to keep track of the heart rate of baby (fetus) and the strength and duration of the contractions of your uterus. Baby's heart rate is a good way to tell whether baby is doing well or may have some problems.
