I believe the answer is somewhere between 0.5% and 1% (about 500-1000 deaths per 100000 births). Below is the list of the sources I reviewed. Some sources provide higher estimates, but those should be attributed to unsanitary conditions in hospitals in the past (in the past births in a hospital were more dangerous than at home, because of contamination by ...

Commonly used diagnostic imaging methods are: Ultrasonography X-ray Computed tomography (CT) Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) Scintigraphy or radionuclide scan (injecting a radioactive tracer into a vein, waiting until it collects in a certain organ, for example, the thyroid gland, and taking a picture of the tracer distribution with a scanner) All the ...

According to NutritionData (data from US Department of Agriculture - USDA.gov), 100 g of kiwi fruit contains 4.4 g fructose and 4.1 g glucose. The wch.sa.gov.au site in the question lists kiwi as high in fructose based on their criteria (2.5-5% of fructose = high). But they also say it has a favorable fructose/glucose ratio, so it will be "better tolerated" ...

I haven't seen a lot of research on these intra-weekly (reporting) trends on anything health-related, but there is one paper on such trend on ILI reporting, alas just in the military: In this report, we describe and analyze a periodic pattern in influenza-like illness within active military populations, derived from the Defense Medical Surveillance System ...

Seasonal and cyclical effects have been studied prior to COVID-19, including day-of-week influences on Emergency Department visit volume. For example, in a study of emergency departments in Western New York: “The final ARMA (2,0) model indicated an autoregressive structure with up to a 2-day lag. ED volume is lower on weekends than on weekdays, and ...

Some diseases have laboratory result-based definitions. For example, diabetes is defined by some organizations as a fasting blood sugar value over a certain level, or other similar laboratory test results. For a project related to encrypting health data you may wish to start with simpler examples like this to understand how you might protect the identities ...

I am working in the information security industry and personally following medical technology closely. Your first question kind of asks to predict the future, which nobody can. Yet, I will give you my personal opinion on the matter. Is it reasonable to expect the cost of sequencing an individual's genome to drop so much in the near future as to allow for ...

This is evolving. Originally there was a high percentage of medical staff (30%) being infected by sars-cov-2 in Wuhan but as the mode of transmission became clearer and ppe better, this has now improved so that no cases were reported outside of Hubei in China though it's being reported outside of China. Disease was also more severe in medical staff for ...

The first question relates to the retail price floor of genome sequencing hardware. As with any commercial product, price depends on demand. I don't envision much demand for home genome sequencing, for three reasons. The hardest part of genomic inquiries is not getting the data, but interpreting it. The demand for interpretation will grow, and I suspect ...

I would like to make a recommendation, as a researcher also working in medical imaging. You state that you are interested in predicting lesion diameter, patient gender, and patient age from the scans. However, when a radiologist reads a scan, they already know the patient gender and the patient age because that information is in the medical record. They also ...
