Discussion The purpose of measuring temperature is to monitor the health of the individual and evaluate for a potentially abnormal physiological state such an ambient hyper/hypothermia or infectious disease. Rectal and esophageal temperature are considered the two most reliable measures for the gold standard of core body temperature. Oral, axillary and inguinal temperatures are common alternative measurement sites but do underestimate core body temperature. These sites often use digital/electronic temperature measurements and contact with the patient’s skin which is not helpful for high volume screening locations. An...

Worried About Something? Here ’ s Why You Should Stop Talking About It
If you have a big worry on your mind, you probably feel compelled to do something to try to resolve it as soon as possible. In my experience specializing in treating anxiety disorders, there are three main things people tend to gravitate towards when they are worried about something: analyzing it in their own head, talking to someone else to get their opinion/reassurance, and researching it online. All of these things can sometimes make us feel better in the short-term but really perpetuate the anxiety and cause more suffering in the long term. In this article, I’m going to focus on one of these behaviors: seeking op...

New Developments in FDA Regulation of AI
CONCLUSION On the whole, FDA seems very enthusiastic about the possibilities for AI to improve healthcare.  That’s gratifying to see. While progress in the development of a new regulatory approach is slow, that’s also not all bad. It would be worse in many ways for FDA to act precipitously.  These are complicated issues, and it will take time to develop an appropriate approach, in part because it will take time for FDA to acquire enough expertise. And most likely, whatever new approach we come up with will require new statutory authority. That said, it is incumben...
