Computing technology is everywhere in our daily life; from personal handheld devices to machinery for industrial use. Today, even the medical and health care industries are increasingly dependent on computer technology as caregivers are expected to attend to more patients without compromising the quality of care.

Evaluation of VACUETTE® Urine CCM Tubes for Urine Strip Testing

Greiner Bio One International AG

A clinical evaluation of the VACUETTE® Urine CCM tubes was carried out to assess the performance and suitability for the determination of the semi-quantitative parameters in dipstick urinalysis.

Evaluation of the VACUETTE® Urine CCM tubes for Urine Sediment testing on the Sysmex UF-1000i flow cytometer

Greiner Bio One International AG

A clinical evaluation of the VACUETTE® Urine CCM tube was carried out by assessing the measurement characteristics of particles in urine sediment. Urine samples were collected in parallel with different collection tubes and storage conditions, and results of the measurements where then compared according to agreement.

Evaluation of the feasibility of the VACUETTE® Urine CCM tube for microbial testing of urine samples

Greiner Bio One International AG

A clinical evaluation of the VACUETTE ® Urine CCM tube was carried out to evaluate the feasibility for microbial testing of urine samples. The objective was to investigate the stability of microorganisms and microbial counts including bacteria and yeasts when using the VACUETTE ® Urine CCM tube up to 48 hours in comparison to VACUETTE ® Urine Culture tubes both stored at room temperature (20-25°C), and the VACUETTE ® Urine No Additive tube stored at 4°C-8°C in the refrigerator.

Greiner Bio-One VACUETTE® Urine CCM Tube

Greiner Bio One International AG

The Greiner Bio-One VACUETTE® Urine CCM Tube, with a powder additive, has been shown to be an effective form of urine sample preservation. Using an iRICELL® Automated Urinalysis System, an evaluation of the Greiner Bio-One VACUETTE® Urine CCM Tube was performed to ensure specimen integrity was consistent throughout a 48-hour period.

Evaluation of VACUETTE® Urine CCM tube for Clinical Chemistry

Greiner Bio One International AG

clinical evaluation of the VACUETTE® Urine CCM tube was carried out to evaluate the performance of quantitative determination of clinical-chemical parameters over a period of 48 hours stored at room temperature (20-25°C) compared to a VACUETTE® Urine No Additive tube stored at 4°C in the refrigerator. The quantitative chemical measurements were performed on the Cobas Integra® 800 instrument (Roche Diagnostics) and Olympus AU640 instrument (Olympus Medial Systems).

VACUETTE 10,5 ml URINE CCM (16X100) REF. 455052R

Greiner Bio One International AG

Laboratory agglomeration involves long distances, specimens shipment and longer storage of samples before the analytical testing.

Stability of glucose concentration using VACUETTE ® GLUCOMEDICS blood collection tubes

Greiner Bio One International AG

The VACUETTE ® GLUCOMEDICS blood collection tubes are used to stabilize the in-vivo glucose level in whole blood or plasma for up to 48 hours at room temperature and enable prolonged sample processing time including both storage and/or transportation.

Evaluation of VACUETTE® Plastic ESR Tube with the manual closed ESR measurement

Greiner Bio One International AG

A clinical evaluation of the ESR (Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate) was carried out to assess the VACUETTE  ESR plastic tubes for their performance in comparison with the VACUETTE  ESR glass tubes with the closed manual ESR measurement.

The diagnostic-therapeutic path in Parkinson disease

BTS S.p.A

In subjects with Parkinson the physiotherapy rehabilitation is a very important instrument to fight and slow down the progression of the disease symptoms.
Even if it doesn't have a healing value, integrating it with pharmacologic therapy, it is possible to preserve a good patient physical tone and a significant recovery of motor capacities that are not already compromised. Subjects affected by Parkinson are able to learn motor or procedure processes.
For this reason, a good rehabilitation must include tools that can stimulate the preservation and the improvement of all motor functions, especially to support the everyday life (ADL).

from a bed back to life... the most effective rehabilitation proces

BTS S.p.A

Stroke presents a major global public health challenge, with 5.5 million people dying from stroke each year (WHO 2003) and many more living with chronic disability (Wolfe 2000).
Early rehabilitation is described as an important feature of stroke unit care (Langhorne 1998), but patients are restricted to bed for some days (Diserens 2006) before mobilization is allowed. Very early mobilization has been recently recommended in a number of acute stroke clinical guidelines (Adams 2003; NSF 2007).

TMJOINT: The pursuit of neuromuscular stability

BTS S.p.A

Orthodontics: after correction of tooth misalignment, the achievement of the neuromuscular balance, verified by means of BTS TMJOINT, will be safe from relapse.

Diagnosis and care of the dysfunctional patient: TMJOINT is a simple but highly predictive method for identifying the dysfunctional patient, and apply, as a result, suitable odonto-periodontal treatment plans, or otherwise to exclude the occlusal problems and to address the patient to other therapeutic options.

The selective grinding of occlusal surfaces, both natural and artificial (fillings, dentures) can be implemented not only using the conventional method with occlusion foil, but also guided by EMG (Ciusa et al., 2000). In this case the control by EMG can better highlight the existence of an alteration in the neuromuscular system (Ferrario et al., 1998a; Tartaglia et al., 2001).

Manageability of Computerized Medical Equipment

Advantech Industrial Computing India Pvt. Ltd

Hospitals today are being transformed into sophisticated medical facilities with computer-based medical equipment and intelligent, connected medical devices. Healthcare facilities are becoming digitized and networked, with a wide array of high-tech medical devices supplying data to a centralized electronic medical record (EMR).

Medical equipment such as diagnostic equipment, laboratory/analytical equipment, drug dispensing carts, computerized physiotherapy, patient infotainment terminals, multi-parameter patient monitoring, endoscopy and Computers-on-Wheels (CoWs) all leverage PC-based architectures and feed data into the EMR, which acts as both a permanent repository for health information and a system that can be accessed instantly by doctors to assist with clinical decisions.

The Use Of The I-Gel Supraglottic Airway In Pre-Hospital Resuscitation

Intersurgical Ltd

The i-gel (figure 1) is an innovative 2nd generation supraglottic airway with a soft, gel-like, non-inflatable cuff. The i-gel is designed to create a non-inflatable anatomical seal of the pharyngeal, laryngeal and peri-laryngeal structures. It incorporates a gastric channel to provide an early warning of regurgitation, facilitate venting of gas from the stomach, and to allow for the passing of a suction tube to empty the stomach contents. A bite block and epiglottic rest are also integrated into the device. The large diameter cylindrical airway tube is contained within a buccal cavity stabiliser, which is anatomically widened and concaved to eliminate the potential for rotation and provide vertical strength for insertion [1].
