Philips, ResMed tout collaborative home ventilation therapy COPD study results
This study shows that home non-invasive ventilation is a potent, therapeutic tool that clinicians can use to help keep patients with advanced COPD out of the hospital. We hope that this will, in turn, allow them to lead healthier and more active lives at home. These findings add considerably to our knowledge of this highly prevalent and debilitating respiratory disorder, and are expected to greatly influence how clinicians care for patients with COPD on long-term oxygen therapy,” Philips chief medical liaison Dr. Teofilo Lee-Chiong Jr. said in a press release. “This trial adds decisively to the growin...

Quvium ’s cough monitor boosts compliance by involving caregivers
When Steven Schmidt worked at Vertex Pharmaceuticals (NSDQ:VRTX), Eric Olson – the man who led the development of the 1st drug to treat the underlying causes of cystic fibrosis – asked Schmidt to look into ways that families could become more engaged with managing a patient’s condition. Olson pointed towards a publication that showed that involving caregivers added 8 years of life expectancy to children with cystic fibrosis. Schmidt, who now serves as founder and CEO of Quvium, took that idea and began development of a wearable cough monitor that alerts patients’ caregivers when a cough is out of th...

Researchers develop t-shirt embedded respiratory sensor, hopeful for future hospital applications
Researchers from the Université Laval in Canada have developed a novel respiration sensor built into a cotton t-shirt, with hopes that future versions could allow hospital patients to be comfortably monitored while free to be mobile. The sensor is composed of multi-material fibers arranged in the form of a spiral antenna, which monitors changes in antenna geometry due to chest expansion and the displacement of the air volume in the lungs, according to the developers. The device can also connect to short-range wireless communication devices, allowing for remote monitoring of respiration, according to a study publishe...
