Determining when and how to treat heart attacks

Determining when and how to treat heart attacks
Anthony McDougal, a graduate student in MIT’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, has developed a model that predicts a single heart cell’s response to dwindling supplies of oxygen. Specifically, it evaluates a cell’s ability to keep producing ATP — a cell’s primary fuel source — and stay alive, even as it is increasingly deprived of oxygen.

Non-invasive gammaCore device released in U.S.

Non-invasive gammaCore device released in U.S.
electroCore has announced the commercial launch of gammaCore (non-invasive vagus nerve stimulator) for the acute treatment of pain associated with episodic cluster headache in adult patients in the United States (U.S.). gammaCore is the first non-invasive, hand-held medical device applied at the neck and sends gentle, patented electrical stimulation through the skin to activate the vagus nerve, resulting in the reduction of pain.

MultiGen 2 RF generator receives FDA Clearance

MultiGen 2 RF generator receives FDA Clearance
Stryker has announced that it has received FDA 510(k) clearance for its MultiGen 2 RF Generator. This product provides physicians with the efficiency, control and reliability they need when performing radiofrequency ablation, a minimally invasive procedure that can provide lasting relief to those suffering from facet joint pain. The MultiGen 2 RF Generator will debut at the Spine Intervention Society's 25th annual meeting, July 19-22, in San Francisco.

Dolphins inspire trauma treatment

Dolphins inspire trauma treatment
A physiological process used commonly by mammals like seals and dolphins inspired the potentially life-saving method University at Buffalo researchers successfully tested to raise blood pressure in a simulation of trauma victims experiencing blood loss. The pre-hospital intervention is simple—place a bag of ice on the victim's forehead, eyes and cheeks. In a small study, this method was shown to increase and maintain a person's blood pressure during simulated blood loss.

PTSD research identifies potential path to treatment

PTSD research identifies potential path to treatment
A study of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)—conducted by the VA National Center for PTSD (NCPTSD), National PTSD Brain Bank, and Yale University—has identified a new potential mechanism contributing to the biology of the disorder that may be targeted by future treatments. Among combat veterans, PTSD is a common and disabling condition that is associated with high suicide risk, and in some cases it is difficult to treat effectively.

Method predicts effectiveness of catheter ablation

Method predicts effectiveness of catheter ablation
In a small proof-of-concept study, researchers at Johns Hopkins report that a complex mathematical method to measure electrical communications within the heart can successfully predict the effectiveness of catheter ablation, the standard of care treatment for atrial fibrillation, the most common irregular heartbeat disorder. This has the potential to let physicians and patients know immediately following treatment whether it was effective, or whether they'll need to anticipate another procedure in the future.

VR system helps surgeons and reassures patients

VR system helps surgeons and reassures patients
Having undergone two aneurysm surgeries, Sandi Rodoni thought she understood everything about the procedure. But when it came time for her third surgery, the Watsonville, California, resident was treated to a virtual reality trip inside her own brain. Stanford Medicine is using a new software system that combines imaging from MRIs, CT scans and angiograms to create a 3D model that physicians and patients can see and manipulate — just like a virtual reality game.

Nanoparticles fight drug-resistant bacteria

Nanoparticles fight drug-resistant bacteria
Researchers from MIT and other institutions are hoping to use nanotechnology to develop more targeted treatments for these drug-resistant bugs. In a new study, they report that an antimicrobial peptide packaged in a silicon nanoparticle dramatically reduced the number of bacteria in the lungs of mice infected with Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a disease causing Gram-negative bacterium that can lead to pneumonia.

Home healthcare for patients with diabetes improves

Home healthcare for patients with diabetes improves
Having signed a partnership with CERITD, the French Centre for Studies and Research for the Intensification of Diabetes Treatment, Air Liquide is strengthening its position in home healthcare for patients with diabetes. Air Liquide has also acquired an equity stake in 'Diabeloop', the French start-up that is developing an electronic artificial pancreas. With this new collaboration, Air Liquide continues the approach initiated by CERITD based on cooperation between hospital teams and homecare nurses.

Toxic nanoparticles kill drug resistant bacteria

Toxic nanoparticles kill drug resistant bacteria
A team of Brazilian scientists may have come up with a practical way of killing off resistant bacteria by targeting them with toxic silver-silica nanoparticles coated with an antibiotic. Since antibiotics don’t have the full punch to eliminate bacteria resistant to them, the researchers instead used the antibiotic ampicillin as a mechanism to deliver the killer nanoparticles to the pathogens.
