4.1 Introduction

This chapter provides some introductory examples for obtaining data/statistics from the database. We hope that these examples will enable users to become familiar with the tables and the data they contain. These examples will also help to illustrate the complexity of the database and the difficulties encountered in obtaining certain data. Please note that the examples shown here have been tested on database version MIMIC2V25. Although direct copy-and-paste of the examples is possible, some examples may result in ``Invalid Character'' errors. For example, the asterisk (*) character may not be copied-and-pasted correctly. In this case, simply type the correct character in its place.
