Healthcare providers can't ignore social media! Interesting graphic based on US data, but UK must be similar?

Blood Thinners: JAMA patient page

Blood Thinners: JAMA patient page | Stem Cells | Scoop.it

There are 2 types of blood thinners, anticoagulants and antiplatelet drugs. Blood clots can cause problems when they prevent blood from flowing freely, especially to the heart and brain. Sometimes a doctor may not want a patient’s blood to clot as easily and will prescribe a blood thinner.

Nice graphic that helps patients understand the differences between antiplatelet & anticoagulant therapy. This is an important source of confusion for patient's who believe that aspirin is an effective therapy for stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation (it is not).  Another potential confusion is why blood thinners or anticoagulants like warfarin or the newer agents (Pradaxa, Xarelto, Eliquis) are not effective treatments after placement of a stent in the coronary artery. Antiplatelet therapies like Plavix, Effient, or Brilinta are needed.

Deborah Verran's curator insight, May 18, 2014 1:56 AM

This is a good example of the type of reliable factual online information that is available to patients. Some transplant recipients will end up having to take these types of medications (for the appropriate indications). Hence the importance of this particular information.

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

Is That App FDA Approved? Mobile Health Tech Falls Into Gray Area | Stem Cells | 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.

3D Printing Full 'Bioficial' Hearts Still In Its Early Stages, But Scientists Hopeful - Medical Daily

3D Printing Full 'Bioficial' Hearts Still In Its Early Stages, But Scientists Hopeful - Medical Daily | Stem Cells | Scoop.it

This report via Medical Daily is of preliminary research performed in the United States. Tubes of muscle have been developed under laboratory conditions. 

 

Hence although the 3D Printing of full 'Bioficial' Hearts is still in its early stages, scientists believe it will be many years before successful heart transplantation becomes a reality.
