Ultrasound patch monitors blood pressure deep inside body

Ultrasound patch monitors blood pressure deep inside body
A new wearable ultrasound patch that non-invasively monitors blood pressure in arteries deep beneath the skin could help people detect cardiovascular problems earlier on and with greater precision. In tests, the patch performed as well as some clinical methods to measure blood pressure. Applications include real-time, continuous monitoring of blood pressure changes in patients with heart or lung disease, as well as patients who are critically ill or undergoing surgery.

3D virtual simulation gets to the heart of irregular heartbeats

3D virtual simulation gets to the heart of irregular heartbeats
In a proof of concept study, scientists at Johns Hopkins report they have successfully performed 3D personalised virtual simulations of the heart to accurately identify where cardiac specialists should electrically destroy cardiac tissue to stop potentially fatal irregular and rapid heartbeats in patients with scarring in the heart.

Sensors track dopamine in the brain for more than a year

Sensors track dopamine in the brain for more than a year
Dopamine, a signalling molecule used throughout the brain, plays a major role in regulating our mood, as well as controlling movement. Many disorders, including Parkinson’s disease, depression, and schizophrenia, are linked to dopamine deficiencies. MIT neuroscientists have now devised a way to measure dopamine in the brain for more than a year, which they believe will help them to learn much more about its role in both healthy and diseased brains.

Could a DIY ultrasound be in your future?

Could a DIY ultrasound be in your future?
Engineers at the University of British Columbia have developed a new ultrasound transducer, or probe, that could dramatically lower the cost of ultrasound scanners to as little as $100. Their patent-pending innovation—no bigger than a Band-Aid—is portable, wearable and can be powered by a smartphone. Conventional ultrasound scanners use piezoelectric crystals to create images of the inside of the body and send them to a computer to create sonograms.

Breathing sensor for neonatal patients cleared by the FDA

Breathing sensor for neonatal patients cleared by the FDA
Masimo has announced FDA clearance of RAS-45, an acoustic respiration sensor for rainbow Acoustic Monitoring (RAM), for infant and neonatal patients. RAM could previously be used to monitor adult and pediatric patients greater than 10kg using RAS-125c and RAS-45 sensors. With clearance of the RAS-45 sensor for infant and neonatal patients, acoustic respiration rate measurement is now, for the first time, possible for patients of all sizes, including neonates, in the United States.

BioPrinters could help fight antibiotic resistance

BioPrinters could help fight antibiotic resistance
HP has announced its participation in a pilot program run by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that aims to accelerate the testing of new antibiotics designed to fight antimicrobial resistant bacteria. The pilot uses HP technology to 'print' pharmaceutical samples. As part of the pilot, CDC will deploy new HP D300e Digital Dispenser BioPrinters to four regional labs in the Antibiotic Resistance (AR) Lab Network, to develop antimicrobial susceptibility test methods for new drugs.

Flexible self-powered knee sensor for rehab monitoring

Flexible self-powered knee sensor for rehab monitoring
A self-powered sensor developed at the University of Waterloo could allow doctors to remotely monitor the recovery of surgical patients. The small, tube-like device is designed to be fitted to braces after joint surgery to wirelessly send information to computers, smartphones or smartwatches to track range of motion and other indicators of improvement.
