La mortandad de la gripe aviar, 15 veces mayor a lo estimado

La mortandad de la gripe aviar, 15 veces mayor a lo estimado | Salud Publica | Scoop.it
Durante el primer año de la pandemia de gripe aviar la enfermedad pudo haber causado quince veces más víctimas mortales en todo el mundo de lo estimado hasta ahora, según un estudio publicado por la revista médica británica "The Lancet". Entre abril de 2009 y agosto de 2010, los laboratorios confirmaron que el virus H1N1, causante de la gripe aviar, había causado la muerte de 18.500 personas, pero los investigadores sospechaban que esta cifra fue en realidad mucho mayor.
Ahora, una nueva investigación calcula el número de fallecidos por esta enfermedad en ese periodo en entre 151.700 y 575.400, probablemente alrededor de 201.200. El 80% de estas muertes corresponderían a menores de 65 años, lo que contrasta con las cifras de la gripe común, cuyas principales víctimas mortales son personas de edad avanzada.

What is mHealth? Is it Mobile health or Modern health?

What is mHealth? Is it Mobile health or Modern health? | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

Syllogism causes confusion among healthcare terms such as modern health, mobile health, digital health, ehealth, mhealth, telemedicine, and telehealth.

 

Clearly, Lions & Tigers are both cats, and cats are animals, but the healthcare syllogisms aren’t as straight forward. People often associate Mobile Health with the ambulance that shows up to provide care and transportation, rather than the use of mobile devices and wireless networks. They may also associate Mobile Health with the tablet device the doctor uses as she moves about, rather than a smartphone device. That’s why I drew the diagram with mHealth not entirely within Wireless Health or within Telehealth. And it’s why I added a new term to  encompass them all - Modern Health.

 

I apologize to my consumer audience if this article sometimes gets a bit technical. That’s because it was partially written to address a technical audience. You can skip the technology, go straight to the Cool mHealth Trends.

 

mHealth & Telehealth

 

Telehealth is the delivery of health-related services and information via telecommunications technologies. These services could be as simple as two health professionals discussing a case over the telephone, a video call between patient and practitioner(s), or doing robotic surgery between facilities at different ends of the globe. Telehealth is an expansion of telemedicine, because it’s not limited to clinical treatment but can also apply to prevention. Likewise,telehealth is an expansion of mHealth, because it’s not limited to cellular technologies.

 

mHealth & Wireless Health

 

Wireless health differs from mHealth in that wireless health solutions will not always be mobile and mobile health solutions will not always be wirelessly enabled. Wireless Health integrates wireless technology into traditional medicine, such as for diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of illness. Wireless technologies eliminate the cost and effort to install wires and support the ability to move about without being tethered. Wireless networks can cover very short distances such as between wearable sensors and a smartphone, entire buildings such as Wi-Fi home networks; or wider areas such as cellular networks that extend from tower to tower. These mobile broadband networks are especially useful in reaching new patients in remote areas than previously possible.

 

mHealth & eHealth

 

eHealth describes any healthcare practice supported by electronic information processing and communication, so it has broader reach than mHealth, which relates to practices using mobile  (phone or computing) technologies

 

mHealth: Mobile Health or Modern Health?

 

Many app developers view mHealth as exploiting mobile telecommunication in health care delivery. That can include mobile phones (voice & SMS text), smartphones, or a variety of other devices that include laptop computers, patient monitoring devices, MP3 players, PERS systems, and more.  The term can extend to both mobile and stationary devices, as long as they used mobile/cellular telecom technologies, but what if they don’t communicate at all?

 

What if a smartphone app uses sensors to collect health & fitness data and then stores and tracks it on the device itself without ever sending it anywhere? If the device itself is viewed as a telecom device, it might fit in the mHealthcategory, but the iPod Touch has no mobile phone connection, and even though it uses the same iPhone technology, it arguably would not fit the mHealth definition, even though it’s running the exact same code. That’s where the traditional mHealth definition breaks down, and it’s one reason that I prefer to extend mHealth to Modern Health, rather than just Mobile Health.

Modern Health encompasses innovations that collectively define the future of healthcare. They include: digital, electronic & mobile health, telehealth & telemedicine, electronic sensors & cloud-based monitoring services, video calls & telepresence, electronic medical & personal health records, big data & analytics, healthcare robotics & artificial intelligence, personalized medicine & genomics, and the wireless connections (ANT+, Bluetooth LE, ZigBee, Z-Wave, Wi-Fi, 4G, LTE), big broadband networks (fiber-optics), and regulatory & payment reforms that bind them.

 

Yes, nearly 40,000 health-related apps are available today for smartphones, and that number is up ten-fold from about 4,000 in 2010. So clearly smartphone availability and fast Internet access are driving much of the growth of modern healthcare applications, but don’t discount large mHealth opportunities on other devices and in other geographic markets.

Apple's iWatch Will Measure More than Time

Apple's iWatch Will Measure More than Time | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

At first glance it appears to be not much more than eclectic mix of items from various brands that feed the Apple ecosystem. But there's an underlying coherence to the display. Most items are so-called "wearable technologies." Here's a quick sample:

 

#3.Fitbit One and Zip physical activity sensors
#6.Scosche Rhythm heart rate monitor armband
#7.Jawbone Up physical activity and sleep sensor
#12.Nike+ Fuelband physical activity sensor
#18.Lark Life physical activity and sleep sensor
#19.iBGStar blood glucose sensor
#20.iHealth wireless blood pressure wrist monitor

 

Unlike other wearable technologies like, say, headphones, these devices allow you to monitor and analyze sleep, health, and fitness levels. In short, your well being.
