Abstract

The authors tried to do the setup of a database management system of congenital heart diseases. We used a personal computer (IBM PC compatible, 486DX2, 50MHz, 256 Cache memory, 250 MB Hard disk) and developed database program by using Foxpro for Windows(version 2.6, Microsoft, USA). For classification and compatibility of terms in congenital heart diseases, we used code system which was modified from Boston Children's Hospital's codes. The program's menu consisted of input, retrieval, statistic and other utility menus. Used data were summary report, echo-cardiographic report, catheterization laboratory report, surgery report, fetal echo-cardiographic report, electrophyiologic study report and reply report. These all data was related each other. The essential code number of each datum was transferred to summary data automatically and simultaneously on entry of data. Because many portions of input fields of each data were to be selected by menu and popup style, special education for use this program was not necessary. All stored data could be retrieved by example-showing method rapidly and easily. Statistics of diagnosis and surgical results could be gotten by several key strokes, simply. On networking, multiple users could use this program without difficulty. We could consummate the database program which was very effective in data management for congenital heart diseases.
