Dynamic Diagnostic Relationalism: a new diagnostic paradigm for complex rapidly changing clinical conditions

Diagnositc relationalism, Sepsis |

Patient Safety in Surgery now features a Letter to the Editor, authored by Dr. Lynn, which proposes the new science of “Dynamic Diagnostic Relationalism.”

The letter proposes that it is time to reconsider the fundamentals of the science of rapidly evolving and changing critical illness such as sepsis. Decades of large, apparently well-designed clinical trials have failed to generate reproducible results in the investigation of such conditions—likely a result of the oversimplistic threshold science. The letter presents four potential axioms as a way of defining a new science, which assesses the probability of disease as a function of motion images of all the available clinical data.

Full text of the letter can be found in Patient Safety in Surgery 2014, 8:21, available here.
