    Erkrankungsrisiko, Komplikationsrisiko, Heilungswahrscheinlichkeit, Restlebenszeit


    Erkrankungsrisiko, Komplikationsrisiko, Heilungswahrscheinlichkeit, Restlebenszeit

    Erkrankungsrisiko, Komplikationsrisiko, Heilungswahrscheinlichkeit, die potentielle Restlebenszeit sind direkt abhängig vom Alter des jeweiligen Individuums.
    Hier liegt ein epidemiologischer Kontext vor!
    AuthorReza15 May 09, 16:53
    Erkrankungsrisiko = risk of disease, risk of contracting a disease
    Komplikationsrisiko = risk of complications, complication risk
    Heilungswahrscheinlichkeit = probability of healing/recovery
    Restlebenszeit = (estimated) time of survival, term of survival, survival term

    Restlebenszeit = residual life time

    #3Author Rainman_1 (1240115) 26 Jan 23, 10:59

    I have strictly a layperson knowledge about this, but I know I have heard (estimated) "survival time" multiple times in medical contexts. "Risk of disease" sounds much better to me than "risk of contracting a disease" . With reference to a specific disease it sounds better, as in "risk of contracting AIDS", but I would leave the contracting out.

    Re #3 - "Residual life time" sounds odd to my non-medical ears, more like an accounting term (probably because of "residual life of an asset" etc.). Have you seen it in NES medical contexts Rainman_1?

    Ich möchte zu bedenken geben, dass "Restlebenszeit" und "Überlebenszeit" (=survival time) m. E. in unterschiedlichen Zusammenhängen zu verwenden sind.

    "Überlebenszeit" verwendet man m. W. im Zusammenhang mit potentiell tödlichen Erkrankungen.

    "Restlebenszeit" verwendet man m. W. im Zusammenhang mit der verbleibenden Lebensdauer nach Überstehen einer (ggf. schweren, aber nicht tödlichen) Krankheit (die ja aber durchaus auf die Restlebenszeit Auswirkung haben kann).

    Re #5 - oh, thanks, I did not know that. I would think "life expectancy" (inserted in edit:) or "remaining life expectancy" in those contexts, but there is probably another term.

    Maybe Rainman_1 had it right? Hopefully Marianne_BE will stop by...

    In meinen Ohren klingt "Restlebenszeit" auch im Deutschen sehr technokratisch und bestimmt (also nicht "estimated").

    Beim Erkrankungsrisiko fehlt im Englischen noch "risk of illness".

    "healing" würde ich auf Wunden und Verletzungen beziehen, nicht auf eine Krankheit im epidemiologischen Kontext.

    “Mean residual life (MRL) function defines the remaining life expectancy of a subject who has survived to a time point and is an important alternative to the hazard function for characterizing the distribution of a time-to-event variable.”


    “In survival or reliability studies, the mean residual life or life expectancy is an important characteristic of the model.”


    “Quantile residual lifetime (QRL) is of significant interest in many clinical studies as an easily interpretable quantity compared to other summary measures of survival distributions. In cancer or other chronic diseases, treatments are often compared based on the distributions or quantiles of the residual lifetime.”



    Just my 2p

    Lifetime is one word.

    I agree that a term commonly used after cancer or other disease is “survival time” = Überlebenszeit.

    “Residual life(time)” is a concept whose mathematics are way beyond my comprehension. It can be applied to virtually any technical component from light bulbs to washing machines to reinforced concrete structures, not to mention asset management.

    With human beings, I think “residual life(time)” is used in mathematical or computer models and statistics but “(residual/remaining) life expectancy” in more general terms, so it depends on context and target readers.

    Sure, you'll find examples of "life time" as two words but, in the JAMA paper, "lifetime" is actually one word and not hyphenated:

    SuggestionMorbidity risk

    APA Dictionary of Psychology

    morbidity risk

    in epidemiology, the statistical chance that an individual will develop a certain disease or disorder. The probability is often expressed in terms of risk factors, using 1.0 as a base: The larger the number, the greater the morbidity risk.


    This is the "technical" translation for Erkrankungsrisiko, isn't it?
