Tattoo-Like Sensor Could Provide Continuous Monitoring of Vital Signs
Sometimes a doctor needs to measure his or her patient’s cardiac activity for longer than a brief ECG reading would record. In this instance, a physician might prescribe a Holter monitor to record long-term vital signs during normal physical activity, but these devices can have some drawbacks. They might be bulky to wear and could cause itchiness and skin irritations where they are attached to the body. And they don’t provide information in real time. Umana Medical Technologies has developed products that aim to make wearing a heart monitor more convenient for patients and offer the ability of being able to tra...

A maestro that conducts the invasiveness of glioblastoma tumors
(Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciencia) Glioblastoma is the most severe form of brain cancer in adults. The aggressiveness of this cancer is largely due to its ability to invade surrounding brain tissue, making the tumor difficult to remove by surgery. Now, a research team led by Diogo Castro, from Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciencia (IGC, Portugal), discovered a genetic program that controls the invasiveness of this form of cancer. This research, published now in The EMBO Journal, may open avenues for developing new therapies. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)

Motorcycle Response Units in EMS
Motorcycle use in both Fire and EMS is very common outside of the US. In many countries in Europe and Asia, fast response motorcycles are used to reach patients and emergency scenes where dense populations, traffic and small streets in old cities slow traditional ambulance and quick response vehicles (QRV). Distances, poor weather, obstacles or lack of resources can hinder helicopter response, so Motorcycle Response Units (MRUs) are an extremely versatile, efficient way to augment traditional EMS and fire response. Safety is the key for EMS and fire agencies who are considering MRUs to bolster their system capabilities. Wi...
