No More Wasted Lots: Improved Connectivity, Tracking, and CAPA Through Digitization

Conclusion Spaceflight and exploration of the galaxy’s expanses are a risk-inherent, but worthy endeavor. Back on terra firma, state-of-the-art medical devices offer life-changing and often life-saving applications to patients. In order for today’s device makers to survive in a competitive and challenging marketplace, every production advantage must be pursued. On the cusp of 2020, companies simply can’t afford to retain legacy DHR data systems when superior, more efficient tools are right at their fingertips. Thankfully, it doesn’t take a moonshot effort for device makers to make the switch from paper to digital solutions. It simply takes a conscious effort to invest in the future success and prosperity of your medtech company. References 1. “Medical Devices Market 2010-2002” MarketWatch.

Camerota Lower back pain is an extremely common health problem and globally causes more disability than any other condition. Among other rehabilitation approaches, back schools are interventions comprising both an educational component and exercises. Normally, the main outcome evaluated is pain reduction. The aim of this study was to evaluate not only the efficacy of back school therapy in reducing pain, but also the functional improvement. Patients with lower back pain were clinically and functionally evaluated; in particular, the timed “up and go” test with inertial movement sensor was studied be...

DiscussionThis is the first case, to our knowledge, which reports the successful use of SCS in a patient with spinal dAVF-related pain. Spinal vascular malformations, even when cured with treatment, may result in permanent spinal cord damage and engender chronic neuropathic pain for which SCS below the level of injury may be considered.

By ANDY MYCHKOVSKY In this post, I write down all my strategy and business development knowledge in healthcare and organize it into the top 9 commandments for selling as a healthcare startup. I think everyone from the founder to the most junior person on the team should know these pillars because all startups must grow. I should also note these tenets are most applicable for selling into large enterprise healthcare incumbents (e.g., payers, providers, medical device, drug companies). Although I appreciate the direct-to-consumer game, these slices are less applicable for that domain. If your startup needs help developing...

This study aims to document the value of 10-kHz SCS in addition to conventional medical management (CMM) compared with CMM alone in patients with refractory PDN.MethodsIn a prospective, multicenter, randomized controlled trial (SENZA-PDN), 216 subjects with PDN will be assigned 1:1 to receive 10-kHz SCS combined with CMM or CMM alone after appropriate institutional review board approvals and followed for 24  months. Key inclusion criteria include (1) symptoms of PDN for at least 12 months, (2) average pain intensity of at least 5 cm—on a 0- to 10-cm visual analog scale (VAS)—in the lower li...

a Cruz Diane Liu Eduardo Bruera Palliative care is seeing cancer patients earlier in the disease trajectory with a multitude of chronic issues. Chronic non-malignant pain (CNMP) in cancer patients is under-studied. In this prospective study, we examined the prevalence and management of CNMP in cancer patients seen at our supportive care clinic for consultation. We systematically characterized each pain type with the Brief Pain Inventory (BPI) and documented current treatments. The attending physician made the pain diagnoses according to the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) task force classific...
