The publisher regrets that two of the Tables in the published version of this study were incorrectly titled. Table 2 should be titled “Expanded paradigms in diagnosis”, not “Limitations of using successful or failed “treatment response” as an indicator for diagnostic error”; Table 3 should read “Limitations of using successful or failed “treatment response” as an indicator for diagnostic error”, not “Factors complicating assessment of treatment response”. The Tables with their correct titles are shown below.
Table 2Expanded paradigms in diagnosis
ICU = intensive care unit.
Table 3Limitations of using successful or failed “treatment response” as an indicator for diagnostic error
The publisher would like to apologise for any inconvenience or confusion caused by this error.

- PreviewAn open-loop system (also called a “nonfeedback controlled” system) is one that makes decisions based solely on preprogrammed criteria and the preexisting model of the system. This approach does not use feedback to calibrate its output or determine if the desired goal is achieved. Because open-loop systems do not observe the output of the processes they are controlling, they cannot engage in learning. They are unable to correct any errors they make or compensate for any disturbances to the process.
