Don & #039;t Let Great Be the Enemy of Good in Medical Device Development
Thanks to technologies like 3-D printing, virtual concepting, and augmented- and virtual-reality prototypes, product iteration can now be done faster, more cost-efficiently, and more frequently. But while that affords obvious benefits, it also presents a conundrum for medical device development teams: How do you resist the urge to iterate endlessly? The problem is certainly not new, but it has been compounded in recent years as the prototyping tools available to medical device engineers have advanced. In a session on iterative design at the MD&M West Conference February 7, experts tackled the topic and shared how they ...

Why Cardiostim is Cancelled This Year
The cardiac electrophysiology community has lost an opportunity for professional development and networking that typically drew thousands from the sector to Nice, France every two years. The organizers of Cardiostem, which was expected to take place in June, have pulled the plug on the meeting.  The driving factor in the decision to cancel Cardiostim seems to be a recent decision by the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA), part of the European Society of Cardiology, to end its 12-year partnership with Cardiostim. The EHRA has decided to host its own annual congress instead, called Europace, which is schedule...

Starwatch: close approach to Earth will bring us a supermoon
But total lunar eclipse on 31 January won ’t be visible in UKThe full moon on 31 January coincides with the Moon ’s closest approach to Earth. This means that it will appear slightly larger and therefore slightly brighter than normal. In recent years, this phenomenon has become known as a supermoon. Supermoons are around 7% bigger and up to 30% brighter than other lunar appearances. Although these increases are hardly noticeable to the eye, it is nice to gaze up and know the Moon is near its closest point to Earth, an altitude of around 224,000 miles (360,000km).Continue reading...

I thought I would never be clear of mucus and never be able to walk without being out of breath. All I ever wanted was to breathe. I spent so much energy trying to breathe that I didn’t have much left for eating, so I was really skinny. I spent a lot of time in a wheelchair.
