When It Comes to Some Medical Treatment, Researchers Find Less Is More
Beyond its effects on the body, medical care can be a balm for the mind. Extensive treatment can feel like a promise that doctors have done everything possible. But that perceived security can come at a high price. As health costs soar, patients are emptying their pockets for care that may not make them healthier, research suggests. Last year, a 5,000-person trial showed that for patients with chronic but stable heart disease, surgical procedures such as stenting and bypass did not reduce the risk of heart attack or death more than lifestyle interventions and medication. Even patients with extensive damage did not, on aver...

Laser Welding Benefits Device Fabrication
This article compares and contrasts the capabilities of laser welding versus GTAW for medical device fabrication. It is intended to provide product development engineers some specific guidance on when and how to utilize the technology to save money and optimize results during production. Laser Welding versus GTAW In GTAW, two pieces of metal are first brought into contact or close physical proximity. A high voltage is established between a tungsten electrode and the workpieces, creating an arc that melts the materials. This melted material flows together and then subsequently resolidifies to form the weld seam. GTAW can us...

Researchers Turn to Medtech to Reduce Pain and Swelling from Best-Selling Drugs
A Purdue University team created a biometric platform that uses an automatic injector to push a drug into the skin model and see how it interacts with the skin tissues. The technology has the potential to help drug manufacturers create new formulations and injection devices of medications. The researchers noted that eight of the top 10 selling drugs in the United States are biologics, which are produced from living organisms or certain components of living organisms. Subcutaneous injection is emerging as an effective delivery route alternative to intravenous infusion and allows patients to take the drug at home. The proble...
