In US, there are approximately, 42% of assisted living centers that are run independently and rest are organization with two or more communities that work together. The paying for the care is comparatively less than the average cost of a homemaker services. The average cost per year is approximately US$ 48,000 on the other hand the homemaker service cost is US$ 48,048 or for the home health aide is approximately US$ 50,336. Majority of the assisted living centers utilized some form of private funds to pay for the care services. Thus, the growing number of assisted living centers is expected to create a demand for the nurse call systems across the world.
In the era of modern world, medicals advances are evident everywhere. Recently, a team of doctors, researchers and scientists have collaborated to create an electronic biosensor which can be incorporated inside a brain to measure or determine the pH, temperature, flow rates and pressure of the brain. Moreover, it dissolves when no longer needed without the need of any surgical procedure. It is widely applicable in Neuroscience field as brain trauma and injuries kill around 50,000 people per year in the USA alone. These kinds of injuries often cause the brain to swell, which constricts the flow of blood and oxygen, and can lead to permanent damage. So surgeons need reliable ways of monitoring the pressure inside their patients’ head. Earlier, sensors that existed were usually large, heavy and solid, thus had to be removed once the patient recovered. But bioresorbable wireless brain sensors are light, handy and could be easily inserted inside the brain to monitor intracranial pressure and temperature. Once the implantable device is not needed, it is absorbed by the body, eliminating the need of surgically removing the device.
Bleeding disorder is a medical condition characterized by the improper functioning of blood clotting process called as coagulation. Body’s coagulation system is unable to form blood clots at the site of injury, at incisions made during surgery, trauma or menstruation which results in moderate to high levels of blood loss. Most of bleeding disorders are inherited. It is also acquired with some liver diseases, side effects of certain medications, low red blood cell count, and vitamin K deficiency. There are three main types of this condition: hemophilia, clotting factor deficiency, and Von Willebrand Disease (VWD). Treatment of bleeding disorder depends on the severity and type of disorder. Various treatment options are available for bleeding disorder such as replacement therapies which include clotting factor replacement, fresh frozen plasma transfusion, platelet transfusion, iron supplementation, and medication treatments.
Tattoo is defined as the temporary or permanent mark made on body part by inserting pigment or ink under the skin. It is associated with various sentimental and ritual values of people, since ancient times. Now-a-days, the tattoos market is growing at a phenomenal rate, leading to upsurge in the tattoo removal market as well. There are several tattoo removal procedures, which include laser, surgical, creams, and others (intense pulsed light therapy, saline, deep chemical peels, and rejuvi). Among these, laser is the widely preferred method owing to its accuracy in removing tattoos and relatively lesser side effects, while surgical procedure such as dermabrasion & surgical excision is a long healing and painful process. Moreover, tattoo...
The market need for neurodiagnostic testing is increasing. Its long-term growth is driven by an aging population that needs treatment of neurodegenerative disorders, management of strokes, intervention with spinal cord injuries, and therapeutic devices for psychiatric disorders—all diseases that impact sleep. There is a synergy between the sciences of neurodiagnostics and sleep diagnostics, including much overlap in expertise and equipment. Sleep centers can thereby benefit themselves and their patients by integrating neurodiagnostic services into their offerings.
Gene Editing service options are available from several specialized providers. Choosing to outsource this application may not only save time and effort, but can also provide benefits from technical expertise and facilities dedicated to customized gene and genome editing. Such services can offer researchers the advantages of CRISPR-Cas9-based editing methods and comprehensive workflows--from experimental design, to cell line development and validation. In deciding on a service, among the factors to consider include the desired method of gene editing, such as CRISPR or TALEN
Genome editing (also called gene editing) is a group of technologies that give scientists the ability to change an organism's DNA. These technologies allow genetic material to be added, removed, or altered at particular locations in the genome.
Human organs-on-chips (OOCs) are miniaturized versions of lungs, livers, kidneys, heart, brain, intestines and other vital human organs embedded in a chip. With advances in OOC technology, drug regulatory bodies have started testing OOCs for their reliability and their use as an alternative to animal testing. For instance, in April 2017, the US FDA announced an agreement with Emulate Inc., a USA-based biotechnology company, to evaluate the company’s human organ-on-chip technology in laboratories. The OOC technology offers a less time-consuming and cost-effective way to test drugs, foods, cosmetics and dietary supplements for efficacy and toxicity. Emulate Inc. was founded by researchers at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University, and is the first commercial organ-on-chip venture. Companies such as Johnson & Johnson and Merck have also partnered with Emulate to test and develop applications for its human OOC technology.
Healthcare supply chain management involves obtaining resources, managing supplies, and delivering goods and services to providers and patients. To complete the process, physical goods and information about medical products and services usually go through a number of independent stakeholders, including manufacturers, insurance companies, hospitals, providers, group purchasing organizations, and several regulatory agencies.
Ayurveda is an Indian medicine system that is derived from "Ayurvedic" natural form and alternative medicine. Ayurvedic medicine is one of the world's oldest holistic healing system. It is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on the delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit.
In health care, two exciting uses of artificial intelligence — in the clinic for patient care and in the laboratory for drug discovery — are remarkably different applications. That perhaps explains why, though it’s still early days for both, they are developing at different rates.
