Example text

Working memory is a crucial construct of cognition and is related to moment-by-moment dispositions of body features such as eye movements [8]. Researchers have developed traditional, dual component (storage and processing components) span tasks aimed at measuring the capacity of one’s working memory [9][10]. For example, one task used to measure individual differences in working memory capacity is the automated operations span (AOSPAN). The AOSPAN involves a 3-section practice component, followed by a problem screen displaying the math problem, next an answer screen with a true or false button, and finally a screen with a letter to be remembered.

Farooq et al. abnormality of any kind in the past. This critical information is of huge importance in pre-operative risk assessment before any surgical operation is scheduled for the patient.

It shows that the patient is suffering from chest pain which is “Typical” chest pain. What clinically defines typical pain can be asserted in the chest pain risk assessment ontology developed as part of the chest pain risk assessment ontology.

In the presence of a powerful ontology based systems, it is a shame that we have not yet fully exploited the offerings of clinical Ontologies like SNOMEDCT and GALEN capable of providing appealing standardization solutions to the healthcare providers. SNOMEDCT has become a new gold clinical documentation standard for the modern healthcare systems because of extensive in depth clinical repositories with powerful search capabilities developed using ontology based techniques.
