Since there is still no approved antidote for sulfur mustard (SM) poisoning, clinical management of DCSM exposure on different organs of pulmonary, skin, ocular, neuro-psychiatric, immune, and cardiovascular systems are supportive and symptomatic (table 1).
As for other DCSM, management of delayed oular complications of SM (DOCS) is supportive and almost all require long-term follow-up to control the symptoms and signs such as dryness, feelings of granulation, itching, burning sensation; photophobia, tearing, ocular pain, chronic conjunctivitis; peri-limbal hyperpigmentation, corneal thinning, vascular tortuosity, limbal ischemia; corneal opacity, corneal vascularization, and corneal epithelial defect.
Various therapeutic methods for the clinical management of DCSM in Iranian veterans have been applied over the past few decades.
With DCSM, the data mining algorithm developed in this research, health management personnel could benefit from the enhanced search speed and efficiency when tackling with massive amounts of data.
In view of Apriori's time-consuming computational processes, this study proposes DCSM, a new algorithm that significantly enhances Apriori's efficiency by avoiding repeated scans of the complete database.
The following example, as shown in Table 4, illustrates the deduction procedure via DCSM.
