Tip wire guide aids access to pancreatic and bile ducts

Tip wire guide aids access to pancreatic and bile ducts
Cook Medical has released its new Acrobat 2 calibrated tip wire guide for navigating the pancreatic and bile ducts during cholangio-endoscopic procedures. The device has a 5.8 cm hydrophilic coated flexible tip that helps to move through difficult anatomy, while rotational rigidity allows it to offer a 1:1 'torqueability' for precise control of the tip. Pushability is also improved by about a third compared with the previous model of the Acrobat.

Experimental tech monitors drug levels in the body

Experimental tech monitors drug levels in the body
As with coffee or alcohol, the way each person processes medication is unique. One person's perfect dose may be another person's deadly overdose. With such variability, it can be hard to prescribe exactly the right amount of critical drugs, such as chemotherapy or insulin. Now, a team led by Stanford electrical engineer H. Tom Soh and postdoctoral fellow Peter Mage has developed a drug delivery tool that could make it easier for people to get the correct dose of lifesaving drugs.

Oxford announces agreement for metabolic biomarker profiling

The Nuffield Department of Population Health (NDPH) of the University of Oxford and Finnish Nightingale Health has announced that Nightingale’s proprietary biomarker analysis technology will be installed at the NDPH Wolfson Laboratory at the University of Oxford. The aim of NDPH is to generate and disseminate reliable evidence from observational epidemiology and from randomised trials that leads to practicable methods of avoiding premature death and disability.

SymPulse Tele-Empathy replicates symptoms of Parkinson’s

SymPulse Tele-Empathy replicates symptoms of Parkinson’s
Klick Labs, a digital healthcare innovation lab, has introduced the SymPulse Tele-Empathy Device, a Proof of Concept that wirelessly records and transmits patient tremors in real time to help foster clinical empathy and better care for the more than 40 million people living with movement disorders in the U.S. alone. The announcement underscores the innovation lab’s exploration of several applications and platforms to induce more empathy for patients across many disease states.

Oxygen level sensor to prevent spread of infections

Oxygen level sensor to prevent spread of infections
DOXS Technology Systems, a Pennsylvania firm, has developed a single-use oxygen level monitoring sensor for measuring the fraction of inspired oxygen (FiO2), or the percentage of oxygen involved in the gas exchange performed by a patient’s lungs. Currently used galvanic oxygen sensors have been in existence for decades, but they have a couple downsides that together create potential problems.

Hitting the helmet on the head for improving safety

Hitting the helmet on the head for improving safety
The University of Alabama at Birmingham's (UAB) Department of Mechanical Engineering is approaching a touchdown with the new ways of testing and analysing football head injuries caused by helmet-to-helmet hits. The team there are developing new testing methodologies using crash test dummies to improve helmet testing and ultimately reduce concussions and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI).

Myeloma patients may finally avoid painful biopsies

Myeloma patients may finally avoid painful biopsies
Multiple myeloma is a cancer of the plasma cells, which are white blood cells produced in bone marrow that churn out antibodies to help fight infection. When plasma cells become cancerous, they produce abnormal proteins, and the cells can build up in bone marrow, ultimately seeping into the bloodstream. The disease is typically diagnosed through a bone marrow biopsy, in which a needle is inserted near a patient’s hip bone to suck out a sample of bone marrow — a painful process for many patients.

Contact lens could measure blood glucose in the future

Contact lens could measure blood glucose in the future
Transparent biosensors embedded into contact lenses could soon allow doctors and patients to monitor blood glucose levels and a host of other telltale signs of disease without invasive tests. Scientists say the bio-sensing lenses, based on technology that led to the development of smartphones with more vivid displays, also could potentially be used to track drug use or serve as an early detection system for cancer and other serious medical conditions.
