Insights From Our New E-book, The Medical Futurist ’s Hype Cycle Of The TOP 50 Digital Health Trends
As a researcher, I have always lived for the moments when I had to see a whole process and analyze the small details at once. Looking into the roots and origins of trends and also seeing the possible outcomes are rewarding in a way that I need to work with data (my passion), my analytical skills and my intuitions.  Besides, I’ve always loved challenging myself in order to be better – that is, for example, why I find my participation in undertakings like the Good Judgement Project (GJP) important. So when we at The Medical Futurist decided to create a trend analysis of digital health trajectories, we ignited ...

Catheter-Deliverable Biomaterial Sealants: Interview with Natalie Artzi, Co-founder of BioDevek
BioDevek, a medtech company based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, has developed a biomaterial adhesive that acts to seal internal wounds and incisions. The material is designed to be sprayed through a catheter, and the primary application for the technology so far is to act as a sealant following colonic polyp resection. At present, following polyp resection, surgeons can use polyp clips to seal the resection site, which can hamper wound healing, or use no sealant at all, leading to an open wound that comes with a risk of bleeding or other complications. This can lead to additional surgeries to correct the issue and is inc...

Dogs Benefit from Time Restricted Feeding
A common factor in calorie restriction, intermittent fasting, and time-restricted feeding is time spent in a state of hunger. More time spent hungry may be better, up to a point. The signaling associated with hunger upregulates cellular maintenance processes such as autophagy, known to improve health over the long term. While the biochemistry is under ever greater exploration, there is still a lot of work to be accomplished in order to map the dose-response curve for calorie intake versus time spent hungry, as well as how that dose-response curve may differ in different mammalian species. One might look at recent discussio...

How did we let insurers run health care?
How did we Americans allow health insurers to dictate how physicians practice good medicine? The hypocritic oath says,“Do no harm.” We should not allow insurance company profits to prevent proper care for patients. Our insurer is now telling our young adult son, a Crohn’s patient (Crohn’s is not yet a curable disease), who hasRead more …How did we let insurers run health care? originally appeared inKevinMD.com.

The Truth About Food Intolerances
  Ever since the 1990s, food intolerances are proving to be a rapidly growing problem: intolerances to nightshades, so-called FODMAPs, fructose, histamine-containing foods and others. But why? And does just eliminating the food solve the problem? We need to view food intolerances as a warning sign of the process that causes food intolerances in the first place: disruptions of bowel flora and especially small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, SIBO. Unrecognized or ignored and SIBO can lead over time to weight gain, type 2 diabetes, autoimmune conditions, neurodegenerative diseases, even gastrointestinal cancers. Recogni...

Digital Health Interests Of Pharma Giants Boehringer Ingelheim, Takeda, Astrazeneca, Amgen And Roche
With their extending reaches, resources and influence, pharmaceutical heavyweights have the potential to shape the digital health landscape to line up with their interests. And to have a better picture of where those interests lie, it is worth taking a look at what moves pharma giants are making in this sphere. With this in mind, we started a series of articles focusing on the digital health efforts of 14 global pharma companies.  The first article explored developments coming from Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Bayer and Novartis, while the second article investigated those coming from Merck, GlaxoSmithKline, AbbV...

Food Intolerances: A Warning of Bad Things Ahead
I’ve recently discussed how the majority of food intolerances, whether to FODMAPs, histamine, nightshades, fructose, etc., are really manifestations of dysbiosis and SIBO. Here is another way to view these phenomena: Food intolerances are your body’s signal to you that serious deterioration in your health is coming. In other words, if all you do is choose to reduce or eliminate the offending food, you are still left with the massive disruption of your intestinal microbiome that caused the food intolerance in the first place, along with increased intestinal permeability and endotoxemia. So say you eliminate ferm...

Potassium channel suppressed in hypokalemia – Cardiology MCQ – Answer
Potassium channel suppressed in hypokalemia – Cardiology MCQ – Answer Potassium channel suppressed in hypokalemia – Correct answer: 1. Ikr Prolongation of action potential duration in hypokalemia is due to inhibition of the outward potassium current. IKr, the rapid component of the delayed rectifier potassium current, is markedly suppressed in hypokalemia. There is rapid inactivation of IKr during repolarization. Downregulation of IKr occurs in chronic hypokalemia. In addition chronic hypokalemia causes internalization of IKr channels, reducing their surface density on the plasma membrane. Prolongation...

A man in his 60s woken from sleep by epigastric pain. Would you have been able to correctly diagnose him?
Written by Pendell MeyersA man in his mid 60s with history of CAD and stents experienced sudden onset epigastric abdominal pain radiating up into his chest at home, waking him from sleep. He called EMS who brought him to the ED. He had active chest pain at the time of triage at 0137 at night, with this triage ECG:I sent this ECG, without any text at all, to Dr. Smith, and he replied: " LAD OMI with low certainty. V3 is the one that is convincing. " After his response I sent him the baseline ECG (below), still with no context at all except that this was his prior ECG:Dr. Smith replied: " Now high certainty. By the way,...

A Man With Sudden Onset of Gastroparesis
By HANS DUVEFELT Leo Dufour is not a diabetic. He is in his mid 50s, a light smoker with hypertension and a known hiatal hernia. He has had occasional heartburn and has taken famotidine for a few years along with his blood pressure and cholesterol pills. Over the past few months, he started to experience a lot more heartburn, belching and bloating. Adding pantoprazole did nothing for him. I referred him to a local surgeon who did an upper endoscopy. This did not reveal much, except some retained food in his stomach. A gastric emptying study showed severe gastroparesis. The surgeon offered him a trial of metoclopra...
