It Looks Like One Really Good Hospital Is Doing Its Best With High-Tech. Moving The Right Way With GP And Patient Information Access!

This appeared a day or so ago:Hi-tech health to benefit patientsThe Australian12:00AM February 3, 2018Sarah-Jane TaskerHospitals without patients, NASA-style command centres in healthcare facilities, 3D-printed organs — it sounds like something from a sci-fi novel but it could be part of Australia’s healthcare system in less than 10 years.With healthcare budgets reaching unsustainable levels as people live longer, using technology better is now at the forefront of innovation in the healthcare sector.The issue is being tackled globally. Last week at the World Economic Forum in Davos, the chief executive of Nokia, Rajeev Suri, said his vision for the future of medical treatment included remote surgeries, 5G ambulances and miniaturised, wearable ­scanners.Already, artificial intelligence and algorithms ar e being used to assist clinicians. GE Healthcare’s top expert in Australia, Matt Tucker, said while the clinician would never be replaced, AI would help guide decision-making and do it...

We report energy band bending of methylammonium lead halide (MAPbI3) perovskite film in contact with indium-tin-oxide (ITO) surface using photoelectron spectroscopy in air (PESA) and ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy (UPS) measurements. MAPbI3 perovskite films were vacuum-deposited using co-evaporation of methylammonium iodide (CH3NH3I, MAI) and lead iodide (PbI2) powders. Using PESA and UPS, the highest occupied molecular orbital levels were measured varying the thickness of the perovskite films. Substantial energy band bending close to the ITO surface was not observed. The vacuum-deposited perovskite films feature a...

ZhangAbstractTwo benzaldehyde thiosemicarbazone derivatives namely 3-methoxy,4-hydroxyl-benzaldehyde thiosemicarbazone (MHBT) and 2-hydroxyl,3-methoxy-benzaldehyde thiosemicarbazone (HMBT) were synthesized and their inhibition behavior for mild steel in 1.0 M HCl solution was investigated using gravimetric measurements and electrochemical tests. Weight loss measurements suggested that these two compounds acted as efficient inhibitors for mild steel in 1.0 M HCl solution and the inhibition efficiency reached a ma...

In this study, a cheaper, rapid-prototyping, high-sensitivity angle-scanning surface plasmon resonance (SPR) was developed by fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printing technology for HbA1c detection. The sensor chip is based on an aptamer that has high affinity and high specificity to HbA1c. The results showed that this HbA1c-specific aptamer had high specificity for HbA1c, and the calculated KD was 6.13 × 10-8 M. The linear detection response of HbA1c appeared in the range of 18 to 147 nM, with a detection limit of 1 nM. This SPR HbA1c detection system could be a promising platform for ...

The resulting graphene modified electrode is used for the selective determination of theophylline (TP) in the presence of inhibitor neurotransmitter antagonist, adenosine (AD). The modified electrode surfaces were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and cyclic voltammetry (CV). Bare ...

CoelhoAbstractIn this work, the Cr-rich region of the Cr-Si-B system have been experimentally investigated on arc-melted alloys in order to build the liquidus projection. The determination of the liquid-solid equilibria has been based on microstructural characterization of the as-cast alloys by using scanning electron microscopy and X-rays diffraction. Six primary solidification regions associated to the alloys were identified: Crss, Cr2B, Cr3Si, Cr5B3, Cr5Si3 and CrB. Two terna...
