Goodbye, login. Hello, heart scan.

(University at Buffalo) Forget fingerprint computer identification or retinal scanning. A University at Buffalo-led team has developed a computer security system using the dimensions of your heart as your identifier.The system uses low-level Doppler radar to measure your heart, and then continually monitors your heart to make sure no one else has stepped in to run your computer. The technology will be presented next month at the 23rd MobiCom conference.

ConclusionOptimal timing of ACS treatment varied significantly based on the clinical indication. Women with preterm prelabour rupture of membranes or vaginal bleeding were more likely to have an ACS‐delivery interval>7 days. A prolonged ACS‐delivery interval was associated with an increased risk of neonatal respiratory morbidity and a prolonged stay in the neonatal care unit, but not with neonatal mortality.This article is protected by copyright.

Authors: Daverio M, Babl FE, Barker R, Gregori D, Da Dalt L, Bressan S, Paediatric Research in Emergency Department International Collaborative (PREDICT) group Abstract OBJECTIVES: Helmets use has proved effective in reducing head trauma (HT) severity in children riding non-motorised recreational vehicles. Scant data are available on their role in reducing concussive symptoms in children with HT while riding non-motorised recreational vehicles such as bicycles, push scooters and skateboards (BSS). We aimed to investigate whether helmet use is associated with a reduction in acute concussive symptoms in children with...

CONCLUSIONS: MEG-evoked responses to the ANT reveal neurophysiological evidence of attentional dysfunction within days of injury. A pattern of improvement was also observed over the course of three months for the P300m, while behavioural performance did not change significantly. Further development of this method may yield a useful adjunct to neurological examination for concussion diagnosis and monitoring. PMID: 29355389 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: The number of adherent platelets is determined by a balance between the shear and the degree of stimulation by the agonist. At an ADP concentration of 1 µM, a limit to the shear rate at which platelets can adhere to intact endothelial cells is considered to be slightly higher than 16.8 s-1.

Conclusions:The strength of agreement among imaging, endoscopic, and histologic findings was suboptimal. Colonoscopy and imaging are both likely to be necessary in patients with suspected inflammatory bowel disease. Although colonoscopy may be superior in diagnosis of colitis, imaging may provide more information regarding small bowel disease. Background: Computed tomography scans (CTs), more recently magnetic resonance imaging, are often used to assess the gastrointestinal tract in patients complaining of abdominal pain. We aim to determine the strength of agreement among abdominal imaging, endoscopic, and histologic ...

The Centers for Medicare &Medicaid Services has cancelled plans to create a new regulatory pathway that aimed to accelerate medicare coverage for medical devices, according to a ModernHealthcare report. The federal agency reportedly withdrew the proposition, known as Excite, from review at the White House’s Office of Management and Budget this month, nine months after it was submitted. Details on why the proposition was pulled, and whether or not CMS has plans to pursue such a pathway in the future are unclear, according to the ModernHealthcare report. The proposition was derived from an industry proposal kn...
