Trial Shows Patch Feasible for Heart Rhythm Detection

Results from a clinical trial show a wearable patch, applied and used by older adults in their homes, detects more heart rhythm problems than waiting to see a doctor, the usual way these problems are detected. . . . → Read More: Trial Shows Patch Feasible for Heart Rhythm Detection

Smartphone App, Device Shown to Measure Blood Pressure

A smartphone-based system and app were shown in a pilot study with human subjects to measure a person’s blood pressure with about the same accuracy as some cuff devices normally used to gauge blood pressure. . . . → Read More: Smartphone App, Device Shown to Measure Blood Pressure

Coalition Standardizes Chronic Kidney Disease Tests

A group of medical lab companies, medical centers, and not-for-profit groups developed standardized testing protocols for chronic kidney disease, which participants expect will help more people diagnose the condition earlier. . . . → Read More: Coalition Standardizes Chronic Kidney Disease Tests

Cardiac Augmented-Reality Hologram System in Development

A start-up company spun-off from Washington University in St. Louis was awarded a grant to advance an augmented reality system that displays an interactive hologram of a patient’s heart, to simplify cardiac procedures. . . . → Read More: Cardiac Augmented-Reality Hologram System in Development

NIH Funding Immune-Friendly Synthetic Vascular Grafts
