The estimation of adopted mortality and morbidity rates using model and the phase type law: the Turkish case

Akat, Fulya

This paper aims to estimate mortality rate, morbidity-mortality rates of a chronic disease utilizing phase type law in the frame of two and three state processes. The application on commonly used mortality tables in Turkey are adopted to process to estimate the future mortalities with respect to phase type distribution for the purpose of justifying. Using one absorbing state, two and three state Models calculate the time until absorbing of the death and death by phase type distribution for each gender. Consequently, the 3-state probabilities in estimating the mortality-morbidity rates of IHD for Turkish population yield a significant information on the health management and pricing health insurance products.

The prediction power of machine learning on estimating the sepsis mortality in the intensive care unit
Selcuk, Mehtap; Koç, Oğuz; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe (2022-01-01)
Background: The prediction of sepsis mortality of intensive care unit (ICU) observations using machine learning (ML) methods is hypothesized to yield better or as good as performance compared to the prognostic scores. This paper aims to show that the accuracy of ML in sepsis mortality estimation can be superior and supportive knowledge to SAPS II, APACHE II, and SOFA (traditional) scores even under small sample restrictions. Methods: The retrospective collection of data from the patients (n = 200) admitted ...
The Estimation of adopted mortality and morbidity rates using markov model and phase type law: Turkish case
Akat, Fulya; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe; Department of Financial Mathematics (2015)
Mortality estimation has an important role in determining future population structures and making economical decisions. However, mortality measures do not provide sufficient information about populations. Because of this reason, morbidity estimation of chronic diseases and disabilities has become more important. In this study, firstly Turkish Mortality Tables, such as TRSH 2010, TRH 2010 and SGK 2008, and CSO1980 are adopted to Markov Model to determine mortality rates with respect to phase type distributio...
The role of process configuration in the performance of anaerobic systems
Speece, RE; Duran, M; Demirer, Göksel Niyazi; Zhang, H; DiStefano, T (1997-01-01)
Many studies on biological systems have been conducted. These studies have demonstrated that subtle differences in process configuration such as phasing, staging, biofilms, granules, gas phase management, and combinations thereof can profoundly impact anaerobic process performance. Possible reasons for these differences as well as examples of various studies are presented. (C) 1997 IAWQ. Published by Elsevier Science Ltd.
The facile synthesis of cyclopentanoid antibiotic kjellmanianone
Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Gulbeyaz, V; Akgul, H (1996-01-01)
The synthesis of cyclopentanoid antibiotic Kjellmanianone is described in this study. The C-acylation of lithium enolates of 3-Methoxycyclopentenone by N-carbomethoxyimidazole or methylcyanoformate beta-ketoester, which when oxidized with Mn(III) acetate produces kjellmanianone in good yield.
A Crack Phase-field Model to Analyze Aortic Dissections
Holzapfel, Gerhard A.; Gültekin, Osman; Hager, Sandra P.; Dal, Hüsnü (2019-09-05)
This study analyzes the lethal clinical condition of aortic dissections from a numerical point of view.On the basis of our previous contributions [1,2], we apply a holistic geometrical approach to fracture,namely the crack phase-field, which inherits the intrinsic features of gradient damage and variationalfracture mechanics. The continuum framework captures anisotropy, is thermodynamically consistentand based on finite strains. The balance of linear momentum and the crack evolution equation governthe coupl...
