Angiography Complications

15 03 2009

I have decided that complications only need be logged in your totals if you are 1st operator, since they are largely your responsibility.

I realise that this may not necessarily always be the case, since you may put the arterial sheath as a 2nd PCI operator (and cause vascular trauma), but I think this is perhaps the most reasonable approach to ensure that complication rates are not exaggerated.

I am toying with the idea of only including complications for angio and proceed to PCI cases within the PCI totals alone, again to ensure that they are not exaggerated.

I will report back with a Beta 2 release when I’ve decided.

Logbook Beta 1

8 03 2009

I’ve uploaded a Beta 1 logbook to the usual place.

It is essentially the BasicDB15, with all the made up data erased.

So it is now ready to be tried out properly.

I’ll be giving it a proper test drive over the next few days.
