CES 2020: The Wows and the Whys in Health Tech Innovation
The 53rd edition of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is officially underway! With over 4,400 exhibiting companies from industries ranging from gaming to digital health showcasing their latest products and technologies, you might need some assistance to stay afloat in the flood of new announcements. Donning our rescue caps, The Medical Futurist team is coming to your aid! We’ve compiled the most exciting (and questionable) CES news relating to digital health that we’ve found at this year’s show. Let’s take a look! The Wows Every year at CES, companies come up with promising technologies, some just merely concepts, while others just a few months from mass market release. While there are loads of new tech worthy to take a look at, in this section, we’ve compiled those that really standout and hold promise to advancing the digital health agenda and making patients the point of care. At this year’s CES, some 9 innovative techs wowed us like a smart scale with a twist, a gamified physical rehab therapy for stroke patients and a tricorder-like muti-functional medical Swiss knife with telemedicine possibilities. Let’s look at them all in more details! 1. ScanWatch by Withings: ECG &sleep apnea detection from your wrist Make way Apple Watch, there’s a new competitor on the market! Withings presented its upcoming ScanWatch at this year’s CES and wowed us with its ECG and sleep apnea detection abilities....
Authors: Morisaki T, Fukuhara T, Matsuda E, Moritani S, Miyake N, Koyama S, Fujiwara K, Takeuchi H Abstract Lymphadenopathy is frequently observed in immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related disease in some cases, and such cases are known as IgG4-related lymphadenopathy. The ultrasonography findings associated with IgG4-related lymphadenopathy have not been described in previous reports. Herein, we describe ultrasonography findings in two cases of IgG4-related lymphadenopathy in conjunction with histopathological findings. Combined ultrasound scanning with Doppler examination accurately represented the specific histopathol...
CONCLUSIONS: In cases of BCCs with thickness of ≤1 mm, there was a high correlation (r=0.870) of the tumor spread depth between micromorphological measurements and the results obtained using a 75 MHz transducer and in cases of BCCs with thickness of>1 mm, a very high correlation (r=0.951) of the tumor spread depth was observed between histomorphometry and30 MHz transducer measurements.

Abstract When environmental variation is spatially continuous, dispersing individuals move among nearby sites with similar habitat conditions. But as an environmental gradient becomes steeper, gene flow may connect more divergent habitats, and this is predicted to reduce the slope of the adaptive cline that evolves. We compared quantitative genetic divergence of Rana temporaria frog populations along a 2,000-m elevational gradient in eastern Switzerland (new experimental results) with divergence along a 1,550-km latitudinal gradient in Fennoscandia (previously published results). Both studies found significant cou...

Conclusions/Importance: This study revealed that many users are not responsibly using CBD products, many believe CBD products provide health benefits that are not yet scientifically proven, and they are not knowledgeable about legal and regulatory issues. Until CBD use is more thoroughly researched and has more comprehensive regulation, public health professionals should address alternative stress and anxiety treatment methods.

AbstractIn dairy cattle, the hormonal changes around calving induce large metabolic changes to support milk production. Mobilization of adipose reserves is one of the changes involved, imposing a metabolic load on the liver. We hypothesized that the risk for excessive lipolysis and hepatic lipidosis postpartum can be reduced by starting fat mobilization and processing during the prepartum period by physical exercise, especially in cows with a high body condition score (BCS). As a proof of concept, 32 pregnant Holstein ‐Friesian dairy cows were selected for a 2 × 2 experimental design. Sixteen cows had a BCS
