Zebra Med Scores Nod for Intracranial Hemorrhage Alert Solution

Three times the charm when it comes to Zebra Medical. The Kibbutz Shefayim, Israel-based company has managed to win its third FDA clearance – this time for its artificial intelligence-based technology. The company’s technology is named HealthICH, which is an AI alert for intracranial hemorrhage.Zebra Med's intracranial hemorrhage triage solution can provide early detection of people who may have experienced a brain bleed. The algorithm is comprised of a, tailor-made neural network architecture designed to identify intracranial hemorrhage while tackling several challenges, such as relatively small bleed sizes and common artifacts (metal, motion artifacts) seen within the brain. "We are thrilled to get a third nod from FDA in such a short time and to be able to add such an important new finding to our growing AI1 "all-in-one" package" Eyal Gura, Zebra-Med's CEO, said in a release. This is the second FDA clearance for Zebra Med’s Multi-Modality AI Triage Solutions, which was received in May 2019 and focused on HealthPNX - an AI alert for pneumothorax, based on chest X-rays, enabling it to be the world's first AI chest x-ray triage product. Zebra Med’s first FDA clearance, received in July of 2018, focuses on coronary calcium scoring, which can be an early sign for coronary artery disease.

ConclusionsThis is the first case report to describe pneumorachis and pneumocephalus following blunt trauma with pneumothorax, but no spinal or skull fractures. The mechanism that is probably involved here is a migration of air with subcutaneous emphysema and a pleural hernia into the spinal canal. However, in cases of pneumorachis or pneumocephalus, skull fractures need to be investigated as these require surgery and appropriate vaccination to prevent meningitis.

By LUKE OAKDEN-RAYNER A huge new CT brain dataset was released the other day, with the goal of training models to detect intracranial haemorrhage. So far, it looks pretty good, although I haven’t dug into it in detail yet (and the devil is often in the detail). The dataset has been released for a competition, which obviously lead to the usual friendly rivalry on Twitter: Of course, this lead to cynicism from the usual suspects as well. And the conversation continued from there, with thoughts ranging from “but since there is a hold out test set, how can you overfit?” to &ldquo...

A 60-something presented with hypotension, bradycardia, chest pain and back pain.She had a h/o aortic aneurysm, aortic insufficiency, peripheral vascular disease, and hypertension.  She had a mechanical aortic valve.  She was on anti-hypertensives including atenolol, and on coumadin, with an INR of 2.3. She was ill appearing.  BP was 70/49, pulse 60.A bedside echo showed good ejection fraction and normal right ventricle and no pericardial fluid. Here is the initial ECG:What do you think?This ECG actually looks like a left main occlusion (which rarely presents to the ED alive):  ST Elevation in...

Abstract This case report reveals the implementation of sensorimotor adaptation and learning process for rehabilitation in a patient with traumatic brain injury to achieve optimum recovery which is permanent in nature in compliance to the disability rating scale. A twenty two year old gentleman who had a history of fall was diagnosed as having subarachnoid hemorrhage along with diffuse axonal injury of the brain and bilateral lung contusion with pneumothorax. He underwent a total of ten months of sensorimotor adaptation and learning process for rehabilitation, which achieved functional mobility with a walker. ...

We report a case of primary cutaneous aspergillosis caused by Aspergillus tamarii in an extremely low birthweight infant. The infant was delivered by cesarean section with complications from an intrauterine infection, brain intraventricular hemorrhage, tension pneumothorax and cardiac tamponade. On the 12th day of life, he developed erythematous maceration with erosion on his back. Septate hyphae were detected on two occasions from specimens of the skin lesion. The manifestations of the colony and slide culture showed the characteristics of A. tamarii. The nucleotide sequences of internal transcribed spacer regions of the ...

AbstractBackgroundMajor blunt chest injury usually leads to the development of retained hemothorax and pneumothorax, and needs further intervention. However, since blunt chest injury may be combined with blunt head injury that typically requires patient observation for 3 –4 days, other critical surgical interventions may be delayed. The purpose of this study is to analyze the outcomes of head injury patients who received early, versus delayed thoracic surgeries.Materials and methodsFrom May 2005 to February 2012, 61 patients with major blunt injuries to the chest and head were prospectively enrolled. These patie...

​There is a saying, "Complexity in the face of adversity breeds chaos." I'm not sure where this maxim originated, but it is definitely true in resuscitation settings. That's the crux of this post: Is the abdominal tourniquet simplicity in the face of adversity compared with the resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA)?​We all know how futile it feels to do CPR on a traumatic cardiac arrest patient with suspected massive blood loss. Just what are we pumping, and if there is any remaining intravascular blood, where are we pumping it?I will never forget the pain of trying to resuscitate ...
