How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
Study objective: Online educational resources such as blogs are increasingly used for education by emergency medicine clinicians. The Social Media Index was developed to quantify their relative impact. The Medical Education Translational Resources: Indicators of Quality (METRIQ) study was conducted in part to determine the association between the...
Article
Left ventricular outflow tract pseudoaneurysms are a rare but life-threatening disorder, often caused by complications of cardiac surgery or myocardial infarction. We present a case report of a patient with no prior risk factors who presented with a six-month history of progressive exertional dyspnea, bilateral leg swelling and cough. Point-of-care...

Introduction: Development of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) image-generating skills requires residents to practice on patients awaiting care in the emergency department (ED) for unrelated reasons. While patients are almost universally agreeable to the scans, there is the possibility that they feel pressured to do so and may have negative experien...
Article
Introduction: Intravenous (IV) cannulation is a common and important procedure in the emergency department (ED). Ultrasound-guided IV (UGIV) insertion has been shown to be more effective than the blind approach for patients with difficult IV access. The optimal technique for UGIV insertion has not been determined. The objective of this study is to...

Introduction: The process of triage is used to prioritize the care of patients arriving in the emergency department (ED). To our knowledge, self-triage has not been previously studied in the general emergency department (ED) setting. In an attempt to test the feasibility of implementing this in the ED, we sought to assess the ability of ED patients...
Article
Study objective: Open educational resources such as blogs are increasingly used for medical education. Gestalt is generally the evaluation method used for these resources; however, little information has been published on it. We aim to evaluate the reliability of gestalt in the assessment of emergency medicine blogs. Methods: We identified 60 En...

Automated refactoring is a key feature of modern IDEs. Existing refactorings rely on the transformation of source code declarations, in which references may also be transformed as a side effect. However, there exist situations in which a declaration is not available for refactoring or would be inappropriate to transform, for example, in the presenc...
Article
ContextUncertainty is an unavoidable issue in software engineering and an important area of investigation. This paper studies the impact of uncertainty on total duration (i.e., make-span) for implementing all features in operational release planning.ObjectiveThe uncertainty factors under investigation are: (1) the number of new features arriving du...
Article
Release planning for incremental software development assigns features to releases such that technical, resource, risk and budget constraints are met. Each feature offers a piece of functionality. A feature can be offered as part of a release only if all its necessary tasks are done before the given release date. These tasks require different skill...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Operational release planning (ORP) is concerned with assigning human resources to development tasks in software projects such that a defined set of product features can be completed under given constraints. In this paper, we present a simulation-based approach to study the impact of uncertainty. Uncertainty parameters considered in this paper are r...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
An evolutionary development approach is increasingly common- place in industry but presents increased difficulties in risk manage- ment, for both technical and organizational reasons. In this con- text, technical risk is the product of the probability of a technical event and the cost of that event. This paper presents a technique for more objectiv...
Article
Large industrial software projects are subject to constant evolutionary pressure. New features are added by one team while another team applies bug fixes. Against this flurry of activity it is often dicult to tell if the overall quality of the code base is being maintained or maintenance is needed. Companies rely on system experts to track code hea...
