EasyScript/ComputerScript take a unique approach in abbreviating words by assigning them to five categories and creating one basic rule for each category. As a result, abbreviating words of any given vocabulary can be reduced to five rules equal to the number of categories and the learning curve is significantly reduced. This represents a considerable advantage over any system which assigns a unique abbreviation for each word because larger vocabularies will require adding more rules and abbreviations. Since all existing systems have a limited number of abbreviating rules they cover only a limited number of words it forces creation of user-made abbreviations. The number of EasyScript/ComputerScript categories remains unchanged regardless of the size of the vocabulary and this provision enables users to abbreviate any word of English vocabulary and will eliminate "user made" abbreviations.
MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY DEMO
The child was brought to Hospital at around 3:30 in the morning after an episode of supposed apnea and hypotonia associated with a weak cry. In the Emergency Department, the newborn was noted to be hypoxemic and required physical stimulation for generation of respiratory efforts. He was ultimately endotracheally intubated and placed on a controlled mechanical ventilator and a modified septic work-up was performed.
Broad-spectrum intravenous antibiotics were administered along with a loading dose of aminophylline. The child was sedated, intubated and ventilated. He was hemodynamically stable and oxygen saturation was in the 95% range. There were no signs of head trauma, but a bulging anterior fontanelle was noted. Fundoscopy was not performed. There were no signs of truncal or extremity trauma and the rest of the examination was unremarkable.
