A Case of Metastatic Bladder Cancer in Both Lungs Treated with Korean Medicine Therapy Alone

A Case of Metastatic Bladder Cancer in Both Lungs Treated with Korean Medicine Therapy Alone | Healthcare: reloaded... | Scoop.it

This case report shows that metastatic bladder cancer in both lungs can be cured with KMT alone, without chemotherapy or radiotherapy. HND and HAD S cured metastatic bladder cancer, which was aggravated after treatment with various pharmacopunctures, Soramdan, Gunchildan and CS distillate. It is impossible to draw any conclusion about the effect of each KMT modality on metastatic bladder cancer with only one case. However, this report proposes to use HND and HAD S more actively in the treatment of metastatic bladder cancer and other types of cancer as well. More case reports and clinical studies are needed to prove the effectiveness of these medicines.

ACCU-CHEK Aviva Expert Glucose Meter with Automatic Insulin Dosage Calculator

ACCU-CHEK Aviva Expert Glucose Meter with Automatic Insulin Dosage Calculator | Healthcare: reloaded... | Scoop.it

Roche has announced that it’s now making available in the U.S. its ACCU-CHEK Aviva Expert blood glucose meter. This is the first glucometer that also provides insulin dosage calculation that was approved by the FDA. This is pretty important since at least one study showed that manually calculated bolus doses are usually incorrect and people end up injecting either too much or too little insulin, potentially leading to serious complications.

Face-based Disposable EEG Mask to Help Quickly Diagnose Brain Damage

Face-based Disposable EEG Mask to Help Quickly Diagnose Brain Damage | Healthcare: reloaded... | Scoop.it

Electroencephalography (EEG) is a well known way of assessing brain function, but because of the great difficulty of applying electrodes to the scalp it is rarely used in clinical practice. In emergency medicine, in particular, being able to evaluate how the brain is doing following a trauma can help prevent a lot of long term neurological damage. To make EEG more practical in such situations, researchers from University of Eastern Finland have developed and tested a new EEG electrode face mask that is easy to put on and can provide fast charting of brain activity.

UK Postpones Decision on Value-Based Assessment — Again

UK Postpones Decision on Value-Based Assessment — Again | Healthcare: reloaded... | Scoop.it
Value-based Pricing (VBP) was first discussed as far back as 2007 by the UK’s consumer authority, the now defunct Office of Fair Trading (OFT). The general concept of VBP was to set almost provisional prices based on the expected value of new medicines using immature data, with provisions to ‘correct’ the price should those expected benefits not be delivered in practice.
