Spirometry with the smartphone

Dear Sir or Madam,

Patients with chronic lung diseases need to have their health checked continuously, because a deterioration of their condition can have severe consequences. Until now, such check-ups with spirometry have made a visit to the physician necessary. Read in our current interview, how lung patients can save themselves this trouble by checking their health with the smartphone in the future.

Have a sunny week,

Timo Roth

A smart hospital has many components, which ultimately come together as a connected whole, thus achieving better patient care. One crucial piece of the puzzle that some countries like the U.S. have implemented but one that’s still missing in Germany is the electronic health record (or electronic medical record). It is shrouded in controversy and yet a critical aspect of the hospital of the future.

Prosthetic valve mismatches common in transcatheter valve replacement

In the largest multi-institutional study to date, led by researchers from Penn Medicine, the team found that among patients who underwent a transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), a high number experienced severe and moderate cases of prosthesis-patient mismatch (PPM) meaning the implanted heart valve is too small for the patient which can lead to inadequate blood flow.

How to predict life of implants without animal testing

An international team of researchers consisting of scientists from NUST MISIS and TU Dortmund University has developed a technology to study the behavior of orthopedic implants in laboratory conditions as close as possible to the human body. The technology is notable for its ethics: the research can be carried out in vitro - that is, without involving lab animals.

New test procedure for diagnosis of multi-resistant hospital pathogens

A team of researchers at the University of Cologne's Faculty of Medicine and the German Center for Infection Research (DZIF) has achieved a scientific breakthrough in the accelerated diagnosis of multi-resistant hospital pathogens. Using a novel immunochromatographic method, the researchers detected bacteria that are resistant to the antibiotic group carbapenemes.

Some diseases require close, permanent control of the patient, especially if they are chronic and, if unchecked, potentially dangerous, like some lung diseases. Monitoring them is quite cumbersome, because patients regularly need to visit their physician or a hospital. Wireless devices for home measurements offer at least some comfort and relieve to patients.
