FDA clears AliveCor heart monitor, doctors can pre-order The FDA has granted a 510(K) Class II clearance to San Francisco-based AliveCor’s iPhone-enabled heart monitor, which has been commonly known as the “iPhoneECG” since it first made an appearance at CES two years ago. The company announced the clearance as the mHealth Summit kicks off this week in the Washington DC area. AliveCor will begin pre-selling the $199 clinical-quality, ECG monitor, which has the form factor of an iPhone case that fits iPhone 4 and 4S devices, directly from its website starting today, December 3rd. AliveCor CEO Judy Wade told MobiHealthNews that within a few months the heart monitor will be made available in three different ways. Starting this week physicians can buy them from AliveCor’s website for $199, and the site will require them to provide the medical identification numbers to prove that they are indeed a physician. Wade said that pricepoint is less expensive than most electronic stethoscopes.

Healthcare system in India- Important facts you should know about - Healthcare IT Solutions India is the only country in the whole world that is performing development with large number of facts and this is also accepted by the other people that India is more powerful and also has a great knowledge in all the fields more than others. Healthcare software services may be a new concept for India and its population but with the help of Vedas and old books, this is making efforts in the medical field from the hundreds of years. Most of the countries have make a great research related to the medical field but do you know that what they are observing now with the help of hi tech machines, our pundits and writers of those Vedas have already mentioned in their experiences. India is a powerful country but now this is also accepted by the other countries strongly. In India, approximately 70 percent population is still living in rural areas and have to face lots of health problems and other related problems due to some circumstances.

Relationship between Humidity and Influenza A Viability in Droplets and Implications for Influenza’s Seasonality Humidity has been associated with influenza’s seasonality, but the mechanisms underlying the relationship remain unclear. There is no consistent explanation for influenza’s transmission patterns that applies to both temperate and tropical regions. This study aimed to determine the relationship between ambient humidity and viability of the influenza A virus (IAV) during transmission between hosts and to explain the mechanisms underlying it. We measured the viability of IAV in droplets consisting of various model media, chosen to isolate effects of salts and proteins found in respiratory fluid, and in human mucus, at relative humidities (RH) ranging from 17% to 100%. In all media and mucus, viability was highest when RH was either close to 100% or below ~50%. Figures

How tech and smartphones are transforming the infrastructure-intensive healthcare industry “When we were building Wockhardt Hospitals, for over 19 years we had close to 3,000 beds and were the second largest. And the largest hospital boasts of 7,000 beds. Currently, there’s a spend of close to USD 1,85,000 per bed. 10 Reasons Clay Should Be In Every Mama’s Cupboard By Kresha Faber, Contributing Writer This post contains affiliate links. So let me state for the record that I am officially crackers. Electronic underpants come to NSW They are electronic undies that can send text messages and pages - and they're coming to NSW. SIMsystem, the world's first electronic underpants, are to be introduced across NSW nursing homes to monitor incontinence. An Australian invention, the SIMsystem first appeared on ABC's New Inventors program in 2008 and following successful trials in Victoria, will now be rolled out across NSW.

Why is the flu more common during the winter season? Influenza, commonly known as the flu, has distinct transmission patterns around the world. In temperate regions, influenza's occurrence peaks during the winter season, while in some tropical regions, the disease's occurrence tends to correspond with the rainy season. Linsey Marr, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering at Virginia Tech, and her colleagues, Wan Yang, of Blacksburg, Va., one of her doctoral students, and Elankumaran Subbiah, a virologist in the biomedical sciences and pathobiology department of the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine, measured the influenza A virus survival rate at various levels of humidity. Their study presents for the first time the relationship between the influenza A virus viability in human mucus and humidity over a large range of relative humidities, from 17 percent to 100 percent. At low humidity, respiratory droplets evaporate completely and the virus survives well under dry conditions.

Analysis: 103 FDA regulated mobile medical apps There are now more than 100 mobile medical apps registered with or cleared by the FDA as medical devices, according to MobiHealthNews’ just-updated report, aptly named: The 103 FDA Regulated Mobile Medical Apps. When we first published our extensive round-up of FDA regulated mobile medical apps in December 2012, we found 75 apps in FDA’s databases. This time around we added those that received clearance in 2013 as well as a handful of Class I devices we weren’t able to find in time for our last report. By our count about two dozen mobile medical apps either registered with the FDA as Class I devices or secured clearance as a Class II device. No mobile medical apps sought premarket approval as Class III devices in 2013, which was no surprise. “If we move up to the next level — Class III — that requires a premarket approval application.

over 50 hospitals using young living essential oils Over 50 Hospitals Use Young Living Essential Oils Dr. Woodson Merrell, named by New York magazine a “Leader for the New Millennium,” is chairman of the Department of Integrative Medicine at Beth Israel Medical Center, Manhattan campus of Albert Einstein College of Medicine and an assistant clinical professor of medicine at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.

Wearable Technology Goes to the Hospital Among the many not-fun things about going to the hospital is that the place has no fashion sense. What’s even worse, as you may have noted, is that those inelegant gowns they make you wear lack embedded technology to measure your vital signs and pinpoint your location within two-meters. Well, no more! Researchers at the Unversidad Carlos III in Madrid (UC3M, for short) have developed an intelligent shirt that can monitor a patient’s temperature, heart rate, and other vital signs; it can also locate a patient within a two-meter margin of error, like an eagle-eyed GPS, and it can tell nurses or doctors whether the patient is sitting, lying down, or moving about. And it’s all wireless. What’s most intriguing, perhaps, is the localization unit that pinpoints the patient’s location so precisely.
