Diagnosing Cardiovascular Disease

Diagnosing Cardiovascular Disease

Diagnosing CVD is the first step in patients' road to recovery. It is imperative to detect the disease early in order to administer treatment while it is still treatable. In addition, preventing the disease altogether is becoming more important in healthcare. The main approaches for detecting CVD are currently in vitro diagnostics (IVD) at point-of-care (POC) and the use artificial intelligence (AI) in cardiovascular imaging.

Wearable Sweat Sensor Detects Gout-Causing Compounds

Wearable Sweat Sensor Detects Gout-Causing Compounds

In a new paper researchers describe a mass-producible wearable sensor that can monitor levels of metabolites and nutrients in a person's blood by analyzing their sweat. Previously developed sweat sensors mostly target compounds that appear in high concentrations, such as electrolytes, glucose, and lactate. Gao's sweat sensor is more sensitive than current devices and can detect sweat compounds of much lower concentrations, in addition to being easier to manufacture, the researchers say.

Identifying Welding and Bonding Technology for Medical Devices

The essence of a medical device is its relationship to the patient. A growing trend in preventative health is wearable technology, like smart watches and monitors placed on the skin. The engineers of these devices must find solutions to make medical technology flexible and durable enough to work on a person's wrist or hip for example.
