Green Hospital: sustainable in all areas

Dear Sir or Madam,

The whole hospital revolves around the patient and treating him safely and effectively. Can hospitals still have an eye for their consumption under this circumstance? Yes, they even must!

Stay healthy!

New heart valve could transform open heart surgery

Research & Technology, Electromedicine, Medical Technology

A new polymeric heart valve with a life span potentially longer than current artificial valves that would also prevent the need for the millions of patients with diseased heart valves to require life-long blood thinning tablets has been developed by scientists at the universities of Bristol and Cambridge. The team’s latest in-vitro results suggest that the PoliValve could last for up to 25 years.
