The Future of Emergency Medicine: 6 Technologies That Make Patients The Point-of-Care
Car crashes, home injuries, fires, natural disasters: every minute – if not every second – spent without treatment in such cases of medical emergencies and high-risk patients could reduce the chance of survival or proper recovery. In fact, when deprived of oxygen, permanent brain damage begins after only 4 minutes, while death can occur as soon as 4-6 minutes later. In this race against time, digital health technologies that turn patients into the point-of-care could prove to be game-changers for first responders and emergency units. From driverless cars through medical drones to artificial intelligence (...

Medical Drones Will Thrive in Healthcare: A Safe Road to Health
Time is crucial in healing, no matter whether it’s about a natural disaster, heart attack or an organ transplant. In future medical emergencies, where urgent response will be necessary, drones will mean the fastest answer. They will fly the extra mile in delivering drugs, vaccines, blood or organs. Drones are the future of delivery According to my geek calendar, 2017 will be the year of the drone. These advanced versions of model airplanes or unmanned aerial vehicles are everywhere on the rise. According to the estimates of the Consumer Technology Association, 9.4 million units were projected to be sold in 2016 worl...

Foreign policy through the lens of an emergency physician
These seem unrelated, but give me a chance. I was eating outside at a restaurant with my 5 month old, Max, and a car with a modified muffler hit the gas right in front of us. In Australia, you’d call the driver a “hoon.” The noise terrified my boy, and I felt something I’m not used to: protective rage. When Max stopped crying my mind went to struggling families, kids, bombs, drones and suicide bombers, naturally. So I thought I’d type on medicine and foreign affairs. When you arrive in an ER with one-sided leg/arm/face paralysis, you’ll probably be whisked to a CT scanner to see whether...

Advanced Cooling Therapy Releases New Temperature Modulation Device
Advanced Cooling Therapy (ACT), a medical device firm, has expanded personnel in its commercial launch of the Esophageal Cooling Device (ECD). “The ECD is the first device on the market cleared for temperature modulation via the esophagus. This enables efficient core-cooling, or core-warming, without the complexity and risks associated with intravascular catheter placement, and without the obstruction of patient access seen with surface pads and wraps,” said Robin Drassler, the vice president of North American sales. The device is placed like a standard gastric tube, making placement quick. Placement ...

Let’s stop the unnecessary treatment of heart disease
There are many reasons doctors suffer from burnout and compassion fatigue. One of the least-mentioned of these reasons is that much of what we do is so damn unnecessary. In the US, the land of excess everything, caregivers, especially cardiologists, spend most of our time treating human beings that didn’t need to have disease. Let’s be clear and honest: Lifestyle-related disease is largely unnecessary. These days, there is so much unnecessary disease that caregivers, especially cardiologists, rarely see it. We look past the obesity right to the cholesterol number and ECG. And then we pull out the prescription pad for t...

Healthcare Update Sattelite Edition – 09-18-2013
Copeptin levels may revolutionize chest pain evaluations in the ED. When standard treatment was compared with early discharge after normal copeptin levels were obtained, there was no significant difference in major adverse cardiac events at 30 days. Need to review the study data, but this is a promising new test. Marco Rubio calls federal government’s $8.7 million advertising campaign for Obamacare a “blatant misuse of federal dollars.” International Longshore and Warehouse Union dumps affiliation with the AFL-CIO, citing support of Obamacare and immigration reform as two reasons for the disaffiilation. Good thing to...

Throwing a cat amongst the pigeons – cancer risk – will it change our referral pattern for cardiac diagnostic testing?
The recently published retrospective Canadian study of 5 year cancer risk following heart attack in 1996-2006 seems to demonstrate a consistent 3% increased risk in cancer per 10 milliSv radiation dose when adjusted for sex, age, comorbities (but strangely, not for smoking status, nor for actual measured radiation dosage but for presumed, estimated dosage based on investigations and procedures which were billed). Nevertheless, the increased risk seems consistently increased as radiation dose increases and thus the results may be plausible. Given the average age of these patients being ~61 years, some 14% were diagnosed wit...
