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...

High melting point, ultra-low thermal conductivity, large thermal expansion coefficient, excellent damage tolerance and moderate mechanical properties are the main requirements of promising TBC materials. In order to improve the efficiency of je...

Abstract BACKGROUND: To date, no studies have been published that have assessed the optimal position of sling immobilization after anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty for glenohumeral osteoarthritis. METHODS: Thirty-six patients undergoing anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty for osteoarthritis were randomized to a neutral rotation sling versus an internal rotation sling. The primary outcomes assessed included the Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand score; Western Ontario Osteoarthritis of the Shoulder score; Single Assessment Numeric Evaluation score; visual analog scale (VAS) scores for pain and sat...

CONCLUSION:: (1) Thermotherapy on the vascular access reduced the pain caused by needle cannulation in our patients, without complications related to vascular access. (2) We will consider its clinical application in those painful vascular access cannulations at our hemodialysis unit. (3) Further studies are required to assess other potential beneficial effects added to thermotherapy in vascular access cannulation procedure. PMID: 30442083 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In this study, resveratrol was successfully encapsulated using zein-chitosan complex coacervation. The encapsulation efficiency was markedly improved (51.4%) after chitosan coating at 1:2.5 zein/chitosan ratio, compared with 38.6% using native zein. Analysis of multi-model frequency ultrasound treatment effects on resveratrol encapsulation using zein-chitosan complex coacervation showed that 28/40 kHz dual-frequency ultrasound led to the highest encapsulation efficiency (65.2%; 31.9% increase) and loading capacity (5.9%; 31.1% increase) of resveratrol, followed by multi-frequency ultrasound at 20/28/40 kHz (17.8% encapsula...

Publication date: Available online 17 November 2018Source: Fuß &SprunggelenkAuthor(s): Mark Glazebrook, Mohammad Eid, James Stone, Kentaro Matsui, Stéphane Guillo, Masato Takao, Bernard BurgessonSummaryChronic ankle instability following ankle sprains causes pain and functional problems such as recurrent giving way. If non-operative treatments fail, then operative ankle stabilization may be required to improve pain and function. Operative options include both anatomic repair and reconstruction techniques. Anatomic repair techniques utilize pre-existing ligament remnants that are either reattached or tighte...

CONCLUSIONS: Despite some evidence supporting an association between decreased Mg2+ levels and depression from studies with serum, the results of our meta-analysis urge to use caution when associating Mg2+ levels and depression. Future studies are needed to establish a consensus for the role of low Mg2+ levels in depression. PMID: 30444158 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
