A quick microscopic diagnostic system for bacteria (QMDS) is established in Yamaguchi University Hospital. It is extremely useful to save the life of severe septic patient at clinical sites because suitable antibiotics is able to choose at very early stage of his administration.
This system contains computers with database memory and is connected to our central laboratory, so that central laboratory personnel supports our diagnosis. Patients database can be downloaded from our hospital database. The QMDS is also useful to educate the medical students and residents. The detail of the QMDS is as follows.
1. A automated aerobic and anaerobic bacterial culture system is set up in The Advanced Medical Emergency and Critical Care Center (AMEC^3). All doctors is trained to perform Gram stain and to use the system at any time for 24 hours.
2. The main devices are set up in AMEC^3 and connected to the central laboratory of our hospital. Visual data can be transfer is either way, so that diagnostic
supports from the central laboratory is instantly possible. The visual data are effectively usable for medical education.
3. Many kinds of data, such as stained and visualized bacterial data, patient's database from the file of our center and hospital, bacterial data from the central laboratory, educational database and so on, are able to put into the system.
This new QMDS is useful to understand the bacterial pathophysiology at clinical site in the infectious diseases. The stored visualized data will be effectively used for education. To send huge amount of data between our AMEC^3 and the central laboratory back and forth, and to secure the patient data, a specified LAN between AMEC^3 and our central laboratory must be consisted in near future. Concerning about the educational parts, the visualized quiz type questions with the other clinical data is very unique and effective, which is not exercised by textbooks.
In conclusion, this QMDS would contain patient's basic data, clinical laboratory data and clinical course data, beside the visualize bacterial data. Therefore, this QMDS has multi-functions and supports not only clinical field, but also educational area. Less
