Background: Longer transport adversely affects outcomes in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) patients who do not return to spontaneous circulation (ROSC). The aim of this study was to determine the association between the transport time interval (TTI) and neurological outcomes in OHCA patients without ROSC. Methods: We analyzed adult OHCA patients with presumed cardiac etiology and without prehospital ROSC from 2012 to 2015. The study population was divided into 2 groups according to STI (short STI [1-5 minutes] and long STI [≥ 6 minutes])...

Background: Admission blood glucose (BG) level is a predictor of mortality in critically ill patients with various conditions. However, limited data are available regarding this relationship in critically ill patients with cardiovascular diseases according to diabetic status. Methods: A total of 1,780 patients (595 with diabetes) who were admitted to cardiac intensive care unit (CICU) were enrolled from a single center registry. Admission BG level was defined as maximal serum glucose level within 24 hours of admission...

Background: We investigated whether there is a difference in elastographic parameters between pregnancies with and without spontaneous preterm delivery (sPTD) in women with a short cervix (≤ 25 mm), and examined the ability of elastographic parameters to predict sPTD in those women. Methods: E-CervixTM (WS80A; Samsung Medison, Seoul, Korea) elastography was used to examine the cervical strain. Elastographic parameters were compared between pregnancies with and without sPTD...

Background: In the early diagnosis of dementia, an important factor is the evaluation of activities of daily living. The Everyday Cognition (ECog) scale was developed to measure functional changes that are the everyday correlates of specific neuropsychological impairments. This study aimed to examine the validity of the Korean version of Everyday Cognition (K-ECog). Methods: The participants were 268 cognitively normal older adults (NA), 151 amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI), and 77 dementia of the Alzheimer's type (DAT)...

Spinal muscular atrophy with respiratory distress type 1 (SMARD1) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder caused by a defect in the immunoglobulin mu binding protein 2 ( IGHMBP2 ) gene, leading to motor neuron degeneration. We identified an infant with SMARD1 by targeted exome sequencing from a consanguineous Syrian family having a history of recurrent infant deaths. The patient initially presented intrauterine growth retardation, poor sucking, failure to thrive, and respiratory failure at the age of two months, and an inborn error of metabolism was suspected at first...

Background: Gross anatomy and sectional anatomy of a monkey should be known by students and researchers of veterinary medicine and medical research. However, materials to learn the anatomy of a monkey are scarce. Thus, the objective of this study was to produce a Visible Monkey data set containing cross sectional images, computed tomographs (CTs), and magnetic resonance images (MRIs) of a monkey whole body. Methods: Before and after sacrifice, a female rhesus monkey was used for 3 Tesla MRI and CT scanning...

Background: This study aimed to evaluate the current overall preventable trauma death rate (PTDR) in Korea and identify factors associated with preventable trauma death (PTD). Methods: The target sample size for review was designed to be 1,131 deaths in 60 emergency medical institutions nationwide. The panels for the review comprised trauma specialists working at the regional trauma centers (RTCs); a total of 10 teams were formed. The PTDR and factors associated with PTD were analyzed statistically...

Background: Recently, a new generation of gamma knife radiosurgery (GKRS) equipped with a frameless immobilization system has encouraged the use of fractionated GKRS as an increasingly favorable treatment option. We investigated the preliminary outcome of efficacy and toxicity associated with frameless fractionated gamma knife radiosurgery (FF GKRS) for the treatment of large metastatic brain tumors. Methods: Fifteen patients with 17 lesions were treated using FF GKRS and included in this study, because of the large tumor size of more than 10 cm3 ...

Heart rate (HR) change during sleepy driving has never been investigated. Healthy volunteers who planned to drive a long distance were recruited and monitored with a 24-hour Holter. Six healthy volunteers were enrolled. Their mean driving time was 297.7 ± 111 minutes. Mean duration of sleepy time while driving was 27 ± 24.5 minutes. Driving HR showed a trend for increment as compared to day time mean HR, from 85 ± 5.6 to 89.8 ± 5.6 beats/min (by 7%) ( P = 0.093). Mean HR while sleepy driving significantly decreased to 81...

Background: This study aimed to estimate the incidence and prevalence of idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIM) and associated comorbidities in Korea from 2006 to 2015. Methods: IIM between 2004 to 2015 were identified using the Korean National Health Insurance Service medical claim database. The case definition required more than one visit based on diagnostic codes including juvenile dermatomyositis (JDM), dermatomyositis (DM), or polymyositis (PM) and registration in the Individual Copayment Beneficiaries Program (ICBP) for rare and intractable diseases...

The appropriate plot effectively conveys the author's conclusions to readers. Journal of Korean Medical Science will provide a series of special articles to show you how to make consistent and excellent plots easier. In the first of this series of special articles, I will cover Kaplan-Meier curve (or Kaplan-Meier plot) and the ease tools. This plot, generated as a result of the Survival Analysis, provides a visualization of the 'Kaplan-Meier Survival Probability Estimate' for each group.

Background: In this study, we propose a method for automatically predicting atrial fibrillation (AF) based on convolutional neural network (CNN) using a short-term normal electrocardiogram (ECG) signal. Methods: We designed a CNN model and optimized it by dropout and normalization. One-dimensional convolution, max-pooling, and fully-connected multiple perceptron were used to analyze the short-term normal ECG. The ECG signal was preprocessed and segmented to train and evaluate the proposed CNN model...

Background: Fabry disease is an X-linked recessive disorder caused by deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme α-galactosidase A (α-Gal A). Previous studies identified many cases of Fabry disease among men with left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). The purpose of this study was to define the frequency of Fabry disease among Korean men with LVH. Methods: In this national prospective multicenter study, we screened Fabry disease in men with LVH on echocardiography. The criterion for LVH diagnosis was a maximum LV wall thickness 13 mm or greater...

Background: This study aimed to analyze the barriers affecting the utilization of antenatal care (ANC) among Senegalese mothers. Methods: Health facility staffs were surveyed to examine the availability coverage of ANC (infrastructural capacity of health posts to handle maternal and newborn healthcare). A total of 113 women of childbearing age were surveyed to identify factors associated with the accessibility coverage (physical, economic, and information accessibility factors), acceptability coverage (socio-cultural features, social acceptance, and language), and effectiveness coverage (ratio of mothers having completed 4 visits) of ANC...

Background: In-hospital detection of newly diagnosed active pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) is important for prevention of potential outbreaks. Here, we report our experience of the aggressive contact investigation strategy in a university hospital in the Republic of Korea after healthcare workers (HCWs), patients, and visitors experience an in-hospital exposure to active pulmonary TB. Methods: A contact investigation after the unexpected detection of newly diagnosed active pulmonary TB (index patients) was performed in a university hospital from August 2016 to April 2017...

The number of reported varicella cases is continuously increasing in Korea; however, associated medical utilization is declining. The ratio between varicella insurance claims and reports of passive infectious disease surveillance has gradually increased to > 80% since the second half of 2017. The recent increase in reported varicella cases is influenced by improved reporting. We calculated the varicella incidence and cumulative incidence in each birth cohort according to age. The cumulative incidence rate among children aged < 6 years in the birth cohort born after the National Immunization Program introduced the varicella vaccine was about 60% lower than among children born before...
