Sandy Williams Spencer's curator insight, August 14, 12:49 PM

I love this idea. I don't have Parkinsons disease but with COPD I can think of many ways this would help me too. 


I monitor my heart rate and 02 sat levels throughout most of the day. Unless I'm hooked to 02 all the time, I'm checking to see if I need it or need to raise the level that I'm using. 


With COPD if my 02 level drops below 88, brain damage can begin within a few minutes.  Even if I'm wearing my Oxygen tubing, sat numbers must still be monitored. Exertion levels can drive down the saturation level and increase the heart rate. Too much strenuous exercise without an 02 level to compensate can see heart rates escalate way too high.


A monitor such as this would be ideal for those of us who don't wear our oxygen for 24 hours a day.

Google Fit is the company's answer to Apple's HealthKit | Nursing Education | Scoop.it

Not to be left behind Apple’s HealthKit framework that collects and aggregates a user’s health data from various services and devices, Google is working on its own health service called Google Fit if this report from Forbes is to be believed.

 

The service will collect data from popular fitness trackers and health related apps and aggregate them into a central place, similar to Apple’s HealthKit.

Apple: Putting doctors, trainers and nutritionists in your pocket | Nursing Education | Scoop.it

With HealthKit Apple is attempting to unify and share the disparate data of your health and fitness apps with each other, and -- if you want -- with your medical institution as well..


Apple wants to be the one-stop shop for your health and fitness needs. It's a rather ambitious goal, but it's also a necessary one given the increasingly crowded fitness field. And, of course, it also lays the groundwork for that long-rumored iWatch.

Is That App FDA Approved? Mobile Health Tech Falls Into Gray Area

Is That App FDA Approved? Mobile Health Tech Falls Into Gray Area | Nursing Education | Scoop.it

Personal health is becoming increasingly mobile, and there are now thousands of apps aiming to address everything from lifestyle issues to chronic diseases. But can you trust these apps the same way you trust your prescribed drugs and medical devices?

 

Medical devices are generally regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and although the FDA reviews some apps, experts say the agency's power and efforts aren't nearly enough to cover the 97,000 and counting health apps out there that are transforming consumer health.

The Promising Role of Social Listening in Treating Health Issues

The Promising Role of Social Listening in Treating Health Issues | Nursing Education | Scoop.it

Even with drug makers’ recent increases in digital spending, the pharmaceutical industry is repeatedly said to be a laggard in terms of its speed in adoption of social media.

 

Among the 50 largest manufacturers worldwide, more than half still do not use it to actively engage consumers or patients. Most of them use social media as a unilateral broadcasting channel and no more than ten are on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.

 

Pharmaceutical companies largely avoid involvement, cowering from regulatory wrath. They fear a loss of messaging control, privacy concerns and a lack of familiarity with community building. In addition, they struggle to quantify a return on investment.

 

So how do you actually know what physicians are saying about your drug? Can you identify the top ten fears of patients suffering from the conditions treated by your market leading product?

When it comes to the potential for digital health to radically improve chronic medical conditions, diabetes leads the discussion. Despite being an obvious market and the existence of literally thousands of apps claiming to assist with diabetes management, the diabetes app market remains relatively immature, with no clear dominating market leader. Therefore, researchers in Germany conducted a systematic review of diabetes apps for iOS and Android to assess the options currently available on the market

The nurse uses surgical app DocSpera to send the cardiologist a video of the EKG and a summary of the other tests. The cardiologist reviews the EKG while at the conference and decides your mom needs surgery, stat. The cardiologist sends a surgeon the diagnostic information, and the surgeon confirms that a carotid angioplasty must be performed within the next eight hours. This information is passed to a surgery center to identify an operating room. The info also goes to a medical device representative to ensure the correct stent is on its way.
