Now one of the biggest device manufacturers, Stryker Corp., has tied plans to slash 5% of its global workforce – in part by shuttering two New York plants – to the tax. Stryker said it will close its West Seneca, New York plant in September, impacting 11 employees, and its Orchard Park, New York facility in December, eliminating 96 jobs there. The firm said it would provide laid-off employees with severance packages, co...

Choose the optimal system software for your medical devices. Choose the optimal system software for your medical devices November 30, 2010 By: Stephen Olsen, Mentor Graphics. Design Feature Operating Systems Software Technology. No one operating system is right for every medical device. A medical embedded device is usually managed by some sort of operating system OS. A general-purpose OS provides a feature-rich platform for application development, but is often quite large with many contributors. How will the system be used. Systems that employ a general-purpose OS typically aren t as sensitive to the memory footprint and the cost of memory is outweighed by the need to have all the middleware available in a general-purpose OS. How will multicore be used in medical. Finally, a hybrid is available for systems that have more than two cores, where a combination of both SMP and AMP can be ideal Figure 2.

New flexible packaging options are being explored and developed to meet the demands of device manufacturers. Erik Swain, Senior Editor While there are still plenty of standard flexible packages being requested by medical device manufacturers, flexible packaging suppliers are noticing an upturn in the desire for more exotic materials, especially those that can produce a higher barrier. An increase in devices that require special moisture or oxygen protection is the main driver behind the greater use of barrier materials. The predominant barrier material that device manufacturers request is foil, which offers a total barrier provided its integrity is not compromised. But there are other options as well. HIGH-BARRIER FILMS AND FOILS We are getting more requests for foils and for 'clear foils,' which are high-barrier films that you c...

(1/671) Influence of crossdrafts on the performance of a biological safety cabinet.

A biological safety cabinet was tested to determine the effect of crossdrafts (such as those created by normal laboratory activity or ventilation) upon the ability of the cabinet to protect both experiments and investigators. A simple crossdraft, controllable from 50 to 200 feet per min (fpm; 15.24 to 60.96 m/min), was created across the face of the unit. Modifications of standardized procedures involving controlled bacterial aerosol challenges provided stringent test conditions. Results indicated that, as the crossflow velocities exceeded 100 fpm, the ability of the cabinet to protect either experiments or investigators decreased logarithmically with increasing crossdraft speed. Because 100 fpm is an airspeed easily achieved by some air conditioning and heating vents (open windows and doorways may create velocities far in excess of 200 fpm), the proper placement of a biological safety cabinet within the laboratory--away from such disruptive air currents--is essential to satisfactory cabinet performance.  (+info)

(2/671) Modernizing the FDA: an incremental revolution.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for protecting consumers from unsafe or ineffective drugs and medical devices. The agency's role is defined by a growing and increasingly complex set of statutes, which reflect Congress's desires, on the one hand, to prevent product hazards and, on the other, to expedite FDA review and approval of promising new medical technologies. Congress's latest attempt to calibrate regulation to achieve these goals, the 1997 Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act, endorses certain of the FDA's own innovations and changes in the agency's ways of doing business.  (+info)

(4/671) Technology assessment of medical devices at the Center for Devices and Radiological Health.

We reviewed the Food and Drug Administration's regulatory process for medical devices and described the issues that arise in assessing device safety and effectiveness during the postmarket period. The Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH), an organization within the Food and Drug Administration, has the legal authority and responsibility for ensuring that medical devices marketed in the United States are both reasonably safe and effective for their intended use. This is an enormous challenge given the diversity of medical devices and the large number of different types of devices on the market. Many scientific and regulatory activities are necessary to ensure device safety and effectiveness, including technology assessment, albeit in a manner quite different from that of conventional technology assessment. The basic approach taken at the CDRH to ensure device safety and effectiveness is to develop an understanding of the way in which a medical device works and how it will perform in clinical situations.  (+info)

(5/671) Role of technology assessment in health benefits coverage for medical devices.

With the profusion of new medical technology, managed care organizations are faced with the challenge of determining which medical devices and services warrant health benefits coverage. To aid in this decision-making process, managed care companies turn to technology assessment, a process that differs from the Food and Drug Administration's review of medical devices. Health plans typically use a structured approach to implementing coverage requirements in employer group benefits contracts and use technology assessment to evaluate the scientific evidence of effectiveness to support coverage decisions. Also important is the societal context for decisions regarding coverage for new technologies and the options being considered by policy makers for accountability in technology assessment by private insurers and health plans.  (+info)

(6/671) Device evaluation and coverage policy in workers' compensation: examples from Washington State.

Workers' compensation health benefits are broader than general health benefits and include payment for medical and rehabilitation costs, associated indemnity (lost time) costs, and vocational rehabilitation (return-to-work) costs. In addition, cost liability is for the life of the claim (injury), rather than for each plan year. We examined device evaluation and coverage policy in workers' compensation over a 10-year period in Washington State. Most requests for device coverage in workers' compensation relate to the diagnosis, prognosis, or treatment of chronic musculoskeletal conditions. A number of specific problems have been recognized in making device coverage decisions within workers' compensation: (1) invasive devices with a high adverse event profile and history of poor outcomes could significantly increase both indemnity and medical costs; (2) many noninvasive devices, while having a low adverse event profile, have not proved effective for managing chronic musculoskeletal conditions relevant to injured workers; (3) some devices are marketed and billed as surrogate diagnostic tests for generally accepted, and more clearly proven, standard tests; (4) quality oversight of technology use among physicians may be inadequate; and (5) insurers' access to efficacy data adequate to make timely and appropriate coverage decisions in workers' compensation is often lacking. Emerging technology may substantially increase the costs of workers' compensation without significant evidence of health benefit for injured workers. To prevent ever-rising costs, we need to increase provider education and patient education and consent, involve the state medical society in coverage policy, and collect relevant outcomes data from healthcare providers.  (+info)

(7/671) The limited state of technology assessment for medical devices: facing the issues.

Medical devices are an integral part of clinical practice and account for a substantial proportion of the national health budget. Clinical testing and regulation of medical devices, however, is vastly different from and inferior to the testing and regulation of drugs. As managed care organizations begin to exert controls on device use, providers are being caught between the policies of their organizations and the demands of device manufacturers and patients, who want wider access to devices. We outline several reasons for the poor state of medical device evaluations and the dangers of using devices without adequate information, and include the recently developed device assessment and reporting guidelines created by the Task Force on Technology Assessment of Medical Devices.  (+info)

(8/671) High-pressure, rapid-inflation pneumatic compression improves venous hemodynamics in healthy volunteers and patients who are post-thrombotic.

PURPOSE: Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a preventable cause of morbidity and mortality in patients who are hospitalized. An important part of the mechanism of DVT prophylaxis with intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) is reduced venous stasis with increased velocity of venous return. The conventional methods of IPC use low pressure and slow inflation of the air bladder on the leg to augment venous return. Recently, compression devices have been designed that produce high pressure and rapid inflation of air cuffs on the plantar plexus of the foot and the calf. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the venous velocity response to high-pressure, rapid-inflation compression devices versus standard, low-pressure, slow-inflation compression devices in healthy volunteers and patients with severe post-thrombotic venous disease. METHOD: Twenty-two lower extremities from healthy volunteers and 11 lower extremities from patients with class 4 to class 6 post-thrombotic chronic venous insufficiency were studied. With duplex ultrasound scanning (ATL-Ultramark 9, Advanced Tech Laboratory, Bothell, Wash), acute DVT was excluded before subject evaluation. Venous velocities were monitored after the application of each of five IPC devices, with all the patients in the supine position. Three high-pressure, rapid-compression devices and two standard, low-pressure, slow-inflation compression devices were applied in a random sequence. Maximal venous velocities were obtained at the common femoral vein and the popliteal vein for all the devices and were recorded as the mean peak velocity of three compression cycles and compared with baseline velocities. RESULTS: The baseline venous velocities were higher in the femoral veins than in the popliteal veins in both the volunteers and the post-thrombotic subjects. Standard and high-pressure, rapid-inflation compression significantly increased the popliteal and femoral vein velocities in healthy and post-thrombotic subjects. High-pressure, rapid-inflation compression produced significantly higher maximal venous velocities in the popliteal and femoral veins in both healthy volunteers and patients who were post-thrombotic as compared with standard compression. Compared with the healthy volunteers, the patients who were post-thrombotic had a significantly attenuated velocity response at both the popliteal and the femoral vein levels. CONCLUSION: High-pressure, rapid-inflation pneumatic compression increases popliteal and femoral vein velocity as compared with standard, low-pressure, slow-inflation pneumatic compression. Patients with post-thrombotic venous disease have a compromised hemodynamic response to all IPC devices. However, an increased velocity response to the high-pressure, rapid-inflation compression device is preserved. High-pressure, rapid-inflation pneumatic compression may offer additional protection from thrombotic complications on the basis of an improved hemodynamic response, both in healthy volunteers and in patients who were post-thrombotic.  (+info)


What supplies does a beginning massage therapist need?


Can you recommend a type of portable massage table?  What features are important to look for?  What other equipment or supplies does a beginning massage therapist need?
----------

I think a lot depends on where you plan on working, whether you will be starting out on your own or working for someone else. If you are employed by someone you really don't need any supplies. Many places will "hire" you as an independent contractor and they will usually provide a table for you and sometimes lotions/oils but some places don't. If you are going out on your own then you are responsible for providing all your own supplies. When I attended massage school we were given the One table by Oakworks and everyone loved it because it was very comfortable. Make sure you check for the weight limit on the table. If you are planning to travel around with your table make sure it isn't too heavy unless you are going to get a cart for it

Of course you will need lotions and oils, you should purchase unscented (and hypoallergenic if you can afford it) and you can experiment with different (light) scents if your clients have preferences. If you have the money for it, a hot towel cabbie is nice for heating and keeping towels hot, this relaxes the muscles before and after the massage and can also be used if you will be doing spa treatments. However, if a cabbie is not within your budget right now you can use a crockpot to heat up towels also. Don't know if you will be doing hot stone massage then you will also need the stones and a heater. You could also get a massage chair if you are interested in doing seated massage. I have a couple of tennis balls I use for trigger points and I seat on a exercise ball sometimes if I have to work on one area for a long time.

If you are just starting out and want a table on a budget you can check craigslist for a used one. That and lotions and or oils and of course your hands are really all the supplies you need to start once you complete your training. Best of luck to you and have fun.


Why do doctors/gynecologists in Japan use smaller speculums than doctors in the US?


This is kind of a strange question, but my girlfriend works for a multinational medical equipment supply company, and according to her, Japanese hospitals and doctors tend to order smaller sized speculums than their American counterparts.  

Why would this be?

All you need is a place to do pull-ups, and/or a pull up bar, and a set of dumbbells or resistance bands. Then you are good to go. Visit me at http://fitnesscoachrob.com is you have any other questions.

Good luck.


Where can I buy equipment and supplies for baking in Hong Kong?


Anywhere anyone knows that sells baking equipment for cakes, cup cakes, cookies etc.in Hong Kong?
----------

There are street markets all over Hong Kong where they sell everything under the sun.  Screw going to stores.  Just go around and ask people where the nearest street market is.  You'll find what you need somewhere, I guarantee.


What supplies do mst bartenders bring to use on the job?


To be completely prepared for the shift exactly what supplies does a bartender want to bring to the bar? So far the list is a towel, and a cutting knife. Tip jar is optional because not all bars allow or operate with tip jars out. And a vermouth sprayer is optional also. Some bars also have shakers availible but some do not.
----------

The only thing that most bartenders and waiters I know carry is their own wine key (cork puller) and foil cutter.  As for just about anything else, they make due with whatever the place has got.  I've seen bartenders buy some supplies such as drink shakers for the bar when it didn't have them (paid for by the bar).

It's just too hard in a busy place to keep track of your own stuff.

Why the wine key?  Wellllllll ....

1.  They get lost or carried off easily ... so its good to always have your own in your pocket.
2.  They can take some practise to use well, so best to have one that you have experience with.
3.  Most importantly ... You are just flat out screeewed without one.  Almost anything else can be improvised, but try getting a cork out of a bottle without one sometime!
