Clinical Practice

 

Scientists from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine have developed a set of guidelines to combat fatigue in emergency medical services (EMS) personnel in order to reduce medical errors and risk of injury.

Researchers at the NIH National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) in Bethesda, Maryland, have developed a biochemical formula using mineralized compounds capable of regulating the blood sugar of type 2 diabetes for multiple days in mice. Findings are published in Nature Communications.

Researchers led by Minoru Hashimoto, a professor of textile science and technology at Shinshu University in Japan, have developed a wearable robot capable of supporting the hip joint while a patient is walking. The prototype design, which is described as a wearable actuator, is described in an article published in Smart Materials and Structures.

Researchers from RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, have completed the first human trials using a gas-sensing swallowable capsule. The team made two separate discoveries that could improve research into gastrointestinal disorders. Findings are published in Nature Electronics.

Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed an algorithm for cancer patients receiving radiotherapy that could reduce side effects while maintaining efficacy. Findings were published in Physics in Medicine & Biology.
