IN PLAIN ENGLISH
Our prediction models and calculators are built as Decision Support Tools to help doctors and researchers. BUT, doctors and researchers spend years of their life to study and learn toward their common goal: Treating patients.
Decisions regarding treatment of patients should be based on knowledge of physicians and based on evidence-based references only.
So, double-check your work, and trust your clinical judgment over a number or the results presented here . If the Glasgow Coma Scale comes out 14/15, but the patient’s obtunded, which do you think is right? Our tools are not a replacement for experienced clinical judgment. In other words, If you think the patient needs a test or a specific treatment, do the test and prescribe that specific treatment ! Don't not do something a patient needs just because a score tells you something.
Neurodiction cannot and will not be held legally, financially, or medically responsible for decisions made using its calculators, equations, content, and algorithms, and is for the use of medical professionals and academic research community only.
Neurodiction includes clinical decision support tools and content intended for use by healthcare professionals and research community. These tools do not give professional advice; physicians and other healthcare professionals who use these tools or databases should practice based on their own clinical judgment. Consumers (non-medical professionals) who use the tools or databases do so at their own risk. Individuals with any type of medical condition are specifically cautioned to seek professional medical advice before beginning any sort of health treatment. For medical concerns, including decisions about medications and other treatments, non-medical users users should always consult their physician or other qualified healthcare professional.
Neurodiction content development is done by researchers who carefully review evidence-based literature and develop content based on publicly available data or publications. Our team tries to comply with the standards of professional practice that prevails at the time of development of any tool or content. However, standards and practices in medicine constantly and continuously change as new data become available and the individual medical professional should consult a variety of sources.
