Abstract

Pay-for-performance programs and economic constraints call for solutions to improve the quality of health care without increasing costs. Many studies have shown decreased morbidity in major surgery when perioperative goal directed fluid therapy (GDFT) is used. We assessed the clinical and economic burden of postsurgical complications in the University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC) in order to predict potential savings with GDFT.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 7. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 15 October 2014.
All research outputs
#3,452,452
of 17,641,103 outputs
Outputs from Critical Care
#2,464
of 5,362 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#42,864
of 219,489 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Critical Care
#25
of 103 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,641,103 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 80th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 5,362 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 16.9. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 53% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 219,489 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 80% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 103 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 75% of its contemporaries.
