It is characterized by sudden development of liver dysfunction and JAUNDICE. Acute liver failure may progress to exhibit cerebral dysfunction even HEPATIC COMA depending on the etiology that includes hepatic ISCHEMIA, drug toxicity, malignant infiltration, and viral hepatitis such as post-transfusion HEPATITIS B and HEPATITIS C.Predictive Value of Tests: In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.Diagnostic Errors: Incorrect diagnoses after clinical examination or technical diagnostic procedures.United StatesDiagnostic Equipment: Nonexpendable items used in examination.Infant, Newborn: An infant during the first month after birth.Anesthesiology: A specialty concerned with the study of anesthetics and anesthesia.Tomography, X-Ray Computed: Tomography using x-ray transmission and a computer algorithm to reconstruct the image.Prognosis: A prediction of the probable outcome of a disease based on a individual's condition and the usual course of the disease as seen in similar situations.Hospital Design and Construction: The architecture, functional design, and construction of hospitals.Sterilization: The destroying of all forms of life, especially microorganisms, by heat, chemical, or other means.Dental High-Speed Equipment: Tools used in dentistry that operate at high rotation speeds.Disinfection: Rendering pathogens harmless through the use of heat, antiseptics, antibacterial agents, etc.Safety: Freedom from exposure to danger and protection from the occurrence or risk of injury or loss.
