Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Virus

Ruth Lynfield spends much of her time researching Pediatrics, Incidence, Epidemiology, Internal medicine and Vaccination. Her Pediatrics study incorporates themes from Viral disease and Intensive care unit. Her Incidence study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Young adult, Intensive care, Bacteremia, Public health and Disease burden.

Her Epidemiology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Serology, Disease and Pandemic influenza. The concepts of her Internal medicine study are interwoven with issues in Surgery, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and Intensive care medicine. Ruth Lynfield has included themes like Odds ratio, Confidence interval and Heptavalent Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine, Pneumococcal 7-Valent Conjugate Vaccine, Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine in her Vaccination study.

Her most cited work include:

  • Invasive Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Infections in the United States (3226 citations)
  • Decline in Invasive Pneumococcal Disease after the Introduction of Protein–Polysaccharide Conjugate Vaccine (1950 citations)
  • Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus disease in three communities. (1332 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Ruth Lynfield focuses on Pediatrics, Internal medicine, Epidemiology, Virology and Microbiology. Her Pediatrics study combines topics in areas such as Medical record, Intensive care unit and Vaccination. Vaccination is the subject of her research, which falls under Immunology.

Her research in Internal medicine intersects with topics in Staphylococcal infections, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and Intensive care medicine. Her Epidemiology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Bacteremia, Incidence, Group B and Disease. Her study in Microbiology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae and Staphylococcus aureus.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Pediatrics (19.84%)
  • Internal medicine (18.25%)
  • Epidemiology (17.20%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Epidemiology (17.20%)
  • Internal medicine (18.25%)
  • Emergency medicine (6.88%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Ruth Lynfield mainly investigates Epidemiology, Internal medicine, Emergency medicine, Medical record and Incidence. The Epidemiology study combines topics in areas such as Antibiotic prophylaxis, Sepsis, Public health surveillance, Disease and Group B. Her research integrates issues of Interquartile range and Pneumonia in her study of Medical record.

Within one scientific family, Ruth Lynfield focuses on topics pertaining to Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus under Incidence, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Infection control. Her work focuses on many connections between Intensive care medicine and other disciplines, such as Emerging infections, that overlap with her field of interest in Microbiology. Ruth Lynfield combines subjects such as Disease burden and Vaccination with her study of Pediatrics.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Hospitalization Rates and Characteristics of Patients Hospitalized with Laboratory-Confirmed Coronavirus Disease 2019 - COVID-NET, 14 States, March 1-30, 2020. (1051 citations)
  • Seroprevalence of Antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in 10 Sites in the United States, March 23-May 12, 2020. (285 citations)
  • Hospitalization Rates and Characteristics of Children Aged <18 Years Hospitalized with Laboratory-Confirmed COVID-19 - COVID-NET, 14 States, March 1-July 25, 2020. (115 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Virus

Her primary scientific interests are in Epidemiology, Disease, Internal medicine, Coronavirus disease 2019 and Emergency medicine. Ruth Lynfield frequently studies issues relating to Obesity and Epidemiology. Her Disease research incorporates elements of Antibiotic prophylaxis and Group B.

Her research investigates the connection between Antibiotic prophylaxis and topics such as Age of onset that intersect with issues in Pediatrics. Ruth Lynfield interconnects Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine, Pneumococcal vaccine and Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in the investigation of issues within Internal medicine. The various areas that she examines in her Emergency medicine study include Antibiotics, Nursing homes, Comorbidity and Medical record.
