Microcomputers in Medicine
This book discusses a range of subjects in clinical medicine in which the application of modern microcomputer techniques has facilitated analysis of data and patient management. Eleven authors, all of whom have expertise in clinical medicine as well as microcomputing techniques, have contributed precise details of the means by which a microcomputer was adapted to help with a specific medical problem. Each application is considered in terms of both the hardware required to interface computers to patients and the software techniques used to control the handling of data. Topics include the keeping of databases of patient details, clinical measurement systems, and advisory programs for technical details of patient management and surgery. Readers of this book will learn about the difficulties experienced in handling patient data and how they should be overcome.
