Monitoring heart failure at home

Dear Sir or Madam,

Having a heart failure does not mean the end. It can be managed with medication and the change of the lifestyle, but a continuous observation is nevertheless essential. Until now, the monitoring of the progression was possible only with trained personnel and sophisticated lab equipment. But now, with a simple paper test strip, it can be easily carried out at home. Learn more about the new test in our News.

Have fun reading,

For many years, cochlear implants have restored a sense of hearing in people with certain types of hearing loss. For surgeons, the implantation requires a precise attention to detail under the microscope. The results for the patients improve significantly with a more precise placement of the electrode array. The use of a surgical robot can increase the accuracy of the procedure.

Food is not just the sum of its nutrients

Traditionally investigations of a foodstuff's implications for human health focus on the content of individual nutrients such as proteins, fats, carbohydrates, etc. However, newer research shows that the health effects of a food product cannot be determined on the basis on the individual nutrients it contains. The food must be evaluated as a whole, together with other foods eaten at the same time.

Kidney transplants from diabetic donors will save more lives, sooner

There are more than 98,000 people currently awaiting a kidney transplant in the United States. But the organs are in short supply: only about 17,000 patients will receive transplants each year. For sicker patients and those facing the longest wait times - five to seven years or more on the waiting list - a new study finds there may be a benefit to accepting a kidney from a deceased diabetic donor.
