Häufigkeit und Art von Brustschmerzen bei ambulanten Patienten


Hoffmann, A; Gutzwiller, Felix; Dubach, U C (1981). Häufigkeit und Art von Brustschmerzen bei ambulanten Patienten. MMW-Fortschritte der Medizin, 123(36):1323-1326.

Abstract

The incidence of different types of thoracic pain in outpatients at the Medical University Policlinic, Basel, was obtained for comparison from a random sample of the Swiss population. The data from the Rose questionnaire which was used were compared with the case histories. Of 515 patients, 233 admitted having thoracic pains. These complaints were the reason for consulting the doctor in 71 patients. Of all patients who admitted thoracic pains, 14% complained of typical ischemic pains and 60% of unspecific thoracic pains. Perusal of the case histories showed that the doctor was only able to distinguish between coronary heart disease, other organic causes and functional complaints after selective history taking and clinical examination in 89% angina pectoris and 74% unspecific thoracic pains.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
