Electrical conductivity to measure blood in dry blood samples

Researchers from The University of Texas at Arlington have demonstrated that electrical conductivity can be an effective means to precisely measure the amount of blood present in dry blood spot analysis, providing an alternative to the current preferred approach of measuring sodium levels. Dry blood spots are a pinprick of blood blotted on filter paper and allowed to air dry, which is then sent to a laboratory for analysis.

'Kidney on a chip' could lead to safer drug dosing

'Kidney on a chip' could lead to safer drug dosing
University of Michigan researchers have used a 'kidney on a chip' device to mimic the flow of medication through human kidneys and measure its effect on kidney cells. The technique could lead to more precise dosing of drugs, including some potentially toxic medicines often delivered in intensive care units.

Apps help cardiac rehab patients to lose weight

Adding a digital health tool to traditional cardiac rehabilitation appears to help people recovering from a heart attack lose significantly more weight in a relatively short period of time, according to research scheduled for presentation at the American College of Cardiology's 65th Annual Scientific Session. In fact, patients using specially designed health tools on their smartphones and through a Web-based portal lost four times as much weight compared with those undergoing 12 weeks of cardiac rehabilitation alone.

Heartbeats could be measured wirelessly

Heartbeats could be measured wirelessly
A group of researchers at Kyoto University have developed a technique that measures heartbeats wirelessly. The technology works in real time and, the researchers claim, is as accurate as an electrocardiograph. The sensors work by using millimeter-wave spread-spectrum radar technology and a signal analysis algorithm that identifies signals from the body.

Diabetes ‘breathalyser’ enables non invasive testing

Diabetes ‘breathalyser’ enables non invasive testing
  Applied Nanodetectors is developing a simple breathalyser that will give diabetics a non invasive method for monitoring their daily glucose levels and has the potential to replace the ‘prick test’ methods used today.

Artificial pancreas trials to begin in the U.S.

Artificial pancreas trials to begin in the U.S.
In the U.S. alone, 1.25 million Americans suffer from type 1 diabetes, a potentially debilitating and life-changing condition. Every year, more and more people are diagnosed, and the only common treatment is regular insulin injections. A research team hoping to revolutionise diabetes treatment has developed an artificial pancreas that automatically detects changing blood sugar levels and administers insulin automatically, as announced by Harvard University.
