11 New Jobs in the Future of Healthcare and Medicine – Part II.

The question is not whether disruptive technologies will transform the healthcare job market, but rather how and when will it happen. Healthcare navigators, augmented/virtual reality operation planners and nanomedicine engineers in the second part of my article series about future jobs in healthcare. As I am certain that the huge waves of technological change transform the medical professional palette; based on the current and prospective trends in digital health technologies I envisioned what potential new professions could appear in our lives. Don’t miss the first part of the list! If you have an idea about another new job of the future, please let me know and I will keep on improving the list. 1) No one knows what disease are you suffering from? Ask a healthcare navigator! Do you remember what the biggest challenge for Hugh Laurie as Doctor House was in the famous series for solving medical mysteries? Yes, you are right, to actually talk to patients and be in close vicinity to people. He would be very pleased to know that in the future, the work of a specialized diagnostician would not involve direct contact with patients if he did not want to. He could work in a team with actual caregivers, who can provide patients with the adequate amount of attention and care, and with AI algorithms, which would scan through billions of documents within minutes to find the one hidden solution for a very rare medical problem. His job would be to piece together the relevant informat...

Background: The circadian timing system or circadian clock plays a crucial role in many biological processes, such as the sleep-wake cycle, hormone secretion, cardiovascular health, glucose homeostasis, and body temperature regulation. Energy balance is also one of the most important cornerstones of metabolic processes, whereas energy imbalance is associated with many diseases (i.e., obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease). Circadian clock is the main regulator of metabolism, and this analysis provides an overview of the bidirectional effect of circadian rhythm on metabolic processes and energy balance.Summary: The circ...

In conclusion, the present study suggests that the preoperative CONUT score was associated with an increased risk of mortality and complications in GI and HPB surgical oncology. Patients with higher CONUT score as compared with those having a lower score had approximately a fivefold mortality risk and an increased risk up to 55% on major and overall complications after GI and HPB surgery. Our analysis indicates that the appropriate cutoff value of the CONUT score to predict postoperative major complications would be between 4 and 5. The preoperative evaluation of the CONUT score would be helpful for predicting the risk of ...

We describe a case of a 55-year-old man who presented with right internal carotid artery dissection and deviation to the left of the protruded tongue. The direction of the deviation of the protruded tongue was unexpected in this patient, because if the XII nerve palsy was due to mass effect related to the intramural hematoma of the dissected artery, a deviation to the right should have happened. Anyway, a subsequent magnetic resonance revealed also an acute ischemic lesion in the right tongue area in the primary motor cortex of the patient, providing a rare, but a fitting neuroanatomical explanation of the deviation and al...
