Why Human Factors Terminology Needs Updating
Conclusion IEC 62366-1 leaves a chasm between Normal Use and Abnormal Use, so manufacturers might not consider some user actions to be “Use Errors” if these actions do not fit the IEC 62366-1 definition of use. In other words, Use Errors may go undetected, unaddressed, or unmitigated. To protect users and manufacturers, this gap must be closed: IEC 62366-1 should be updated to address user actions that do not fit the current definitions of Normal Use nor Abnormal Use. To mend this gap in IEC 62366-1, we suggest to: Re-define Abnormal Use in terms of abuse. Remove Normal Use. Remove the &...

The role of sensors in medical devices is becoming increasingly more important, especially when it comes to developing new technologies such as wearable devices that can diagnose and transmit information for long periods of time. Recent developments in sensor technologies are driving the trend toward the decentralization of healthcare by putting diagnostic instruments in the hands (or on the bodies) of patients. The move toward miniaturization in medical devices has also enabled sensors to be placed on laparoscopic instruments, providing surgeons with valuable haptic feedback. Experts will examine sensor advancements in th...

Blood Test Gives Greater Insight on Heart Attack Risk After Surgery
A common cardiac blood test done before surgery can predict who will experience adverse outcomes after most types of surgery, said researchers from Hamilton Health Sciences. The VISION study looked at whether levels of a cardiac blood test, NT-proBNP, measured before surgery can predict cardiac and vascular complications. Higher levels of NT-proBNP, which can be caused by various anomalies in the cardiac muscle, such as stress, inflammation or overstretch, can help identify which patients are at greatest risk of cardiac complications after surgery. The study included 10,402 patients aged 45 years or older having non-cardia...

New Biomaterials Speed Trend Toward Smaller Medical Devices and Implants
Growth in the medical device industry has long been driven by innovation, and lately that innovation is coming from the desire to make devices and implants smaller. This trend is exemplified by the move to minimally invasive implants and techniques such as laparoscopic surgery and robotic surgery. The approach leads to faster patient recovery times, less scarring (smaller devices mean the incision can be smaller, too), shorter hospitalization, and a lower total cost of care. New devices and techniques like these are driving medical device industry growth. The United States is the largest medical device market in the world,...
