iOximeter monitors your heart-rate, is powered by your phone's headphone socket | Medical Applications | Scoop.it

Connecting health-monitoring hardware to smartphones is a no-brainer. The phone does the heavy processing, offers up power and screen, and thus makes the hardware cheaper and more importantly , smaller. However, you still need to power the thing, which can be tough when you're trying to gauge vitals overnight or longer.

Physicians, humility, and the transformation of healthcare

Physicians, humility, and the transformation of healthcare | Medical Applications | Scoop.it

A great post from Kent Bottles, MD (@KentBottles) from last month that I missed:

 

Three physicians got me thinking about humility.

 

At the health care innovations summit in Washington, DC earlier this year, I heard Atul Gawande, MD call for medical schools to do a better job at training physicians in humility, discipline, and teamwork (http://careandcost.com/2012/02/03/notes-on-the-care-innovation-summit/). In a 2010 Stanford School of Medicine Commencement speech, Dr. Gawande stated:

 

“And when you are a doctor or a medical scientist this is the work you want to do. It is work with a different set of values from the ones that medicine traditionally has had: values of teamwork instead of individual autonomy, ambition for the right process rather than the right technology, and perhaps above all, humility – for we need humility to recognize that, under conditions of complexity, no technology will be infallible. No individual will be, either.”

(http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/newsdesk/2010/06/gawande-stanford-speech.html)

 

Eric Van De Graaff, MD wrote a blog titled “Why Are So Many Doctors Complete Jerks?” Dr. Van De Graaff was chagrined when his own mother was disappointed when he became a physician; she “had a deep-seated disdain for doctors.” Dr. Van De Graaff answered his own question with two theories. His first theory was that some physicians “let the glory of their careers go to their heads and begin to treat patients and underlings like chewing gum on a movie theater floor.” His second theory was that physicians act like jerks when emergencies occur and they feel overwhelmed and frightened.

 

Dr. Van De Graaff offers two simple rules, which he admits he sometimes does not follow:

 

“Rule #1: It is simply not allowable to be impolite, mean, nasty, or snippy with staff or patients even when you are in a stressful situation.

 

Rule #2: Whatever is stressing you is probably stressing those around you as much or more. Under those circumstances you have to go out of your way to be kinder and more understanding. As a doctor, you control the mood in the clinic and operating room even if you can’t control the situation.” (http://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2012/08/doctors-complete-jerks.html)

 

A physician left the following comment on the above Van De Graaff blog post:

 

“Frustrations and stress mount, yes. I think in medicine we should be aware that continuing bad behavior is partially the responsibility of us all. We have social standards and maybe should ask ourselves how much have we allowed these actions to continue? None of us function in a vacuum. We all have the ability to affect change and reward positive communication.”

 

How do we as a community of physicians respond to these three physicians who are clearly calling for physicians to exhibit more humility in our practice of medicine? Do we know how to affect this change in behavior in our colleagues and ourselves? T. S. Eliot once wrote, “Humility is the most difficult of all virtues; nothing dies harder than the desire to think well of oneself.” (‪Shakespeare and the Stoicism of Seneca.‬ ‪An address read before the Shakespeare Association 18th March, 1927)‬

 

The English words humility and humble are derived from the Latin noun humilitas and the adjective humilis which can be defined as grounded, from the earth, respectful, unassuming, modest, and low. Humility is often contrasted with the terms pride, haughtiness, and arrogance (See the Frank Lloyd Wright quotation at the beginning of this post). Humility has been held up as a virtue in both religious and ethical writings.

 

Pride and arrogance are commonplace among physicians and provide the punch line for the famous New Yorker cartoon where a physician goes to the front of the line in heaven “because he thinks he is God.” In the Christian tradition, part of humility is self-knowledge about the limits of one’s own skills, knowledge, and authority. (http://www.wikihow.com/Be-Humble)

 

When a professional like a physician or a teacher does have superior content knowledge when compared to the patient or the student, arrogance is an all too common attitude. Bertrand Russell was talking about teaching, but his lesson applies to physicians as well:

 

“In the presence of a child [the teacher] feels an unaccountable humility – a humility not easily defensible on any rational ground, and yet somehow nearer to wisdom than the easy self-confidence of many parents and teachers.” (http://www.williamhare.org/assets/hare_humilityasvirtue.pdf)

Transparency Market Research published new market report "Activated Carbon Market (Powdered, Granular) for Liquid Phase and Gas Phase Applications in Water Treatment, Food & Beverage Processing, Pharmaceutical & Medical, Automotive and Air purification - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019," which observes that global market for activated carbon was valued at USD 1,913.2 million in 2012 and is expected to reach USD 4,180.5 million by 2019, growing at a CAGR of 11.9% from 2013 to 2019. In terms of volumes, activated carbon demand was 1,204.5 kilo tons in 2012 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.2% from 2013 to 2019.

Browse the full report at http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/activated-carbon-market.html

Increasing use to eliminate heavy metal residues from industrial waste coupled with growing concerns over environmental and the need to meet Mercury and Air Toxics Standard (MATS) issued by Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) aimed to reduce acid gas, mercury, and other metal emissions from oil and coal fired power plants is expected to drive activated carbon demand in the near future. Unreliable raw material availability with regards to coconut shell charcoal and metallurgical coal is expected to hamper the growth of the market. Reactivation of carbon is a key opportunity for manufacturers to reduce the operation cost of process as well as the carbon foot print.

Powdered activated carbon emerged as the largest product segment owing to its extensive use in mercury removal application and accounted for approximately 49% of the market in 2012. Gas phase is expected to be the fastest growing application for activated carbon at a CAGR of 13.0% from 2012 to 2018. Presently, liquid phase applications dominate the market and accounted for over 58% of the total volume consumed in 2012.

Water treatment was the largest end-use segment for activated carbon and accounted for over 40% of the consumption in 2012. The growing awareness of advantages of water treatment is expected to keep this segment largest over the forecast period. Air purification is expected to be the fastest growing market and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.9% from 2013 to 2019. Pharmaceutical and medical is also one of the key end-user industries. Increasing demand for activated carbon in this industry is primarily due to increased pharmaceutical output in North America and Asia Pacific.

Asia Pacific dominated the global activated carbon market and accounted for over 41% of the total revenue in 2012. Asia Pacific is also expected to be the fastest growing market for activated carbon, growing at a CAGR of 12.0% from 2013 to 2019. Japan, China, and India are the major activated carbon producing countries in Asia Pacific. The demand in North America and Europe is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.2% and 7.6% from 2013 to 2019 respectively.
