'OK Glass, Save A Life.' The Application Of Google Glass In Sudden Cardiac Death

'OK Glass, Save A Life.' The Application Of Google Glass In Sudden Cardiac Death | Technology and Education | Scoop.it

Google GOOG +1.25% Glass has made its way into healthcare.  Its use in theoperating room and in medical education has been profiled here.  Yet the magic of Glass will be found in the applications that can make this “technology” into real-world solutions for health and medicine.  It’s a bit like the smart phone and how its realization is a function of the countless apps that bring the device to life.

 

Christian Assad, MD has taken the next step with Glass and developing a practical app that can turn Glass into a real life-saver. He recently profiles this application on his blog and I believe it’s an important turn of events that showcase just how technology can be applied to medicine and public health issues.  Here’s how it presents the concept in his blog–Google Glass and augmented CPR:

 

THE CPRGLASS SCENARIO

 

1)   Person walking, witnesses someone passing out (syncope)

 

2)   Individual says “OK GLASS, CPRGLASS”

 

A) Instructions appear ABC (Assess Airway, Breathing and Circulation)

 

B) “OK GLASS, No Pulse!”      (An algorithm developed by Hao-Yu Wu et al at MIT demonstrate how a normal camera can detect a pulse in a person with strong accuracy.) We are looking incorporate such algorithm aka (which will be open source) ”Eulerian video magnification” to CPRGLASS for 2 reasons;

 

1) Will help as an innovative method to assess if the compressions are adequate

 

2) Will be able to tell us if patient has regained pulse if we stop compressions, possibly, instead of even having to look for a pulse

An App Wonderwheel for Students on the Autism Spectrum

An App Wonderwheel for Students on the Autism Spectrum | Technology and Education | Scoop.it

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 15, 2013 11:35 AM

This app wonderwheel is developed for students on the autism spectrum by an Apple educator Mark Coppin whom is also the Director of Assistive Technology at the Anne Carlsen Center. The wheel is split into six sections that define common learning expectations. Each of the sections then shows common learning traits, followed by app categories and then the apps (each of which is hot linked at the website). The six categories are:

* Behavior

* Communication

* Social Skills

* Need for Sameness or Routine

* Sensory Sensitivity

* Difficulty with Traditional Learning Methods

The link you to the chapter that discusses Assistive Technology. To go directly to the App Wonderwheel use this link http://www.autismhandbook.org/images/4/4c/Appwheel.pdf.

It is often difficult to know which apps to choose when we work with students. This resource may help you determine some apps to investigate for students on the autism spectrum.

This is the last of a series of three posts that looked at "teaching and learning with an iPad." This post looks at if from a student perspective and discusses three lessons learned (as well as providing data from this 3-year study). The three lessons discussed are:

* Lesson 1: Organization

* Lesson 2: Timely Workflow and Communication

* Lesson 3: Information Access

Access to Part 1 and Part 2 of this series are available at the end of the post. Part 1 look at the lessons learned from the viewpoint of an administrator. The three lessons discusses in this post are:
* Lesson 1: It's About Work Flow & Connectivity, Not Apps

* Lesson 2: Staff Development and Support

* Lesson 3: Be A Model

Part 2 of the series explored the viewpoint from a teachers perspective. The three lessons in this post discussed:

* Lesson 1: Change of Habit

* Lesson 2: Success is in the Support

* Lesson 3: 1:1 iPads Changing Students Performance

For those whom may be pushing out iPads this year or for those using iPads the information in these 3 posts is valuable, esp. since it covers a 3-year period and the perspectives of the 3 key parties involved.

Wireless devices improve blood pressure tracking, adherence (Study)

Wireless devices improve blood pressure tracking, adherence (Study) | Technology and Education | Scoop.it

A study conducted by the Center for Connected Health, a division of Partners HealthCare, showed wireless mobile technologies positively impact patient engagement and can be more effective than modem-based devices. The study was published in the Journal of Diabetes Science and Technology in May.

 

Patients using wireless devices recorded on average three measurements every five days and patients using modem-based devices on average recorded one measurement every five days. When uploading data, patients with wireless-enabled devices uploaded their information on average twice every five days and those with modem-enabled devices uploaded once every 100 days. While the time it took patients to first upload their data was lower for the patients in the wireless-based device group at four days versus seven days, the time to first measurement didn’t differ much.

The CMS Matrix: It's an incredibly nifty CMS comparison tool - but it's not just any tool. It has tons of information on each CMS, and my favorite thing about it is the conversation it stirs between marketing, IT, and the executives.
