the researchers are aiming to fabricate customized sensors, in the form of flexible patches and stickers that could be engineered to detect a variety of chemical and molecular compounds. They also envision their technique may be used to manufacture drug capsules and surgical implants, containing cells engineered produce compounds such as glucose, to be released therapeutically over time.

How Health Care Providers Can Ensure Patients’ End-of-Life Wishes Are Known

How Health Care Providers Can Ensure Patients’ End-of-Life Wishes Are Known | Digital Health, eHealth, mHealth | Scoop.it
Mr. M, an elderly man with chronic lung disease, was found on the floor of his kitchen by a neighbor, who spotted his prone body through an open window. Emergency medical personnel noted that he had a weak pulse and low oxygen level. Labs and imaging in the emergency department suggested that he was in respiratory failure from pneumonia, and he was quickly started on IV antibiotics and fluid support. However, his breathing grew more tenuous during his stay in the emergency department. The physician attending to him did not have access to the details of Mr. M’s medical history or end-of life-wishes, since his hospital and primary care physician had different electronic medical record (EMR) systems. Mr. M later experienced cardiopulmonary arrest in the emergency department, requiring a full resuscitation, intubation, and transfer to the intensive care unit.

No one present, not even Mr. M’s daughter, was aware that he had signed an advance directive — a document detailing his end-of-life preferences — let alone that it was available at his primary care physician’s office, a few miles away. It indicated that he never would have wanted to be resuscitated in the first place.

Just having a conversation with these patient is not enough. We must do more. It is about human morale and respect.

Ambionics 3D printed prosthetic arm for infants enters clinical trials

Ambionics 3D printed prosthetic arm for infants enters clinical trials | Digital Health, eHealth, mHealth | Scoop.it

Infant developmental research shows that children under the age of two are more likely to naturally accept the use of an external prosthetic limb than those who are older. The problem is, at this age, children grow so quickly that it becomes uneconomical to fit them with a synthetic arm or leg. Some devices can also pose more dangers to the child, with sharp edges and moving parts.

Good news ! Hope the results will be good
