mode

 [mōd]
in statistics, the most frequently occurring value or item in a distribution.
2. the manner of interaction between a ventilator and the person being ventilated, usually defined in terms of what the stimulus is that starts the ventilation.
assist mode a mode of positive pressure ventilation in which the patient initiates and terminates all or most breaths and the ventilator gives some amount of support. See also control mode and assist-control mode.
assist-control mode a mode of positive pressure ventilation in which the ventilator is in assist mode unless the patient's respiration rate falls below a certain amount, in which case the ventilator switches to a control mode. When the strength or rate of respiration increases again, the ventilator goes back into assist mode.
assisted mode assist mode.
asynchronous mode a pacing mode in which there is regular stimulation without regard to sensed cardiac signals.
control mode (controlled mode) a mode of positive pressure ventilation in which the ventilator controls the initiation and volume of breaths. See also assist mode and assist-control mode.
inhibited mode a pacing mode in which a sensed event prevents or stops a pacing stimulus and starts a timing cycle.
pacing mode in cardiac pacing terminology, the manner of stimulation of a cardiac chamber by an artificial pacemaker, referring to whether or not sensed cardiac signals (events) are used to inhibit or trigger stimulation. Types include asynchronous, inhibited, and triggered modes.
pressure control mode a mode of positive pressure ventilation in which each breath is augmented by air at a fixed rate and amount of pressure, with tidal volume not being fixed. See also under ventilation.
pressure support mode a mode of positive pressure ventilation similar to the assist mode; the patient breathes spontaneously and breathing is augmented by air at a preset amount of pressure. See also under ventilation.
triggered mode a pacing mode in which the stimulus is emitted in response to a sensed event.

mode

(mōd),
In a set of measurements, the value that appears most frequently.
[L. modus, a measure, quantity]

mode

(mōd)
1. a manner, way, or method of acting; a particular condition of functioning.
2. in statistics, the most frequently occurring value or item in a distribution.

mode

[mōd]
Etymology: L, modus, measure
a value or term in a set or series of data that occurs more frequently than other values or terms.

mode

Abbreviation for:
(uppercase) 3-methoxy-o-dimethylencainide (see there)

EBM
The most common data value in a dataset, and the highest peak of a frequency distribution. The mode is not particularly useful other than for describing shape of distribution—e.g., unimodal (one peak), bimodal (two peaks), etc. 

Epidemiology
A measure of central location of data points.

Medspeak
The way in which a thing occurs.
 
Statistics
The most frequent number of observations in a data set; in a frequency distribution, the interval that contains the highest frequency or score.

mode

Medtalk The way in which a thing occurs. See Asynchronous transfer mode, Pacing mode, Syntaxic mode Statistics The most frequent number or observation in a data set.

mode

(mōd)
In a set of measurements, that value which appears most frequently.
[L. modus, a measure, quantity]

mode

(statistics) the most frequently observed value in a series of observations, i.e. the peak of a FREQUENCY DISTRIBUTION.

mode

most frequently occurring value in a set of observations; it coincides with the mean and median (in data following a normal distribution)

mode

(mōd)
In a set of measurements, most frequent value.
[L. modus, a measure, quantity]

mode (mo),

n a measure of central tendency that is the most frequently occurring score or value in a group of scores. The mode may be used as an average score.

mode

1. in statistics, the value or item in a variations curve that shows the maximum frequency of occurrence; in a series of values, the value that occurs most frequently.
2. the manner in which a procedure is carried out.

amplitude mode

Patient discussion about mode

Q. Can fibromyalgia be diagnosed through laboratory test? If not, what is the mode of diagnosis of the same?

A. Yes, that is true. All the testing is done to rule out other problems, then they look at the 18 trigger points and other symptoms suffers have such as chronic fatigue, headaches, pain that has lasted more than three months, irritable bowel, disturbed sleep, restless leg syndrome, etc. That's why it is so frustrating for those of us that suffer with fibromyalgai. You are run through blood test, mri's, cat scans, reffered to different doctors and you begin to feel like you are nuts and " it is in your head" then when you get the diagnosis most often you are greatly releived just to know what is wrong. I also suggest using a doctor that treats fibromyalgai if you are beginning this "journey" b/c once I did I found everything alot easier and was explained the test why's and so forth alot better. I felt I was being tested b/c they didn't know what was wrong and I had insurance. Once I got the this is to rule out this b/c it has these symptoms you are experiencing I coped
