One of the features Apple brought to the Apple Watch a while back was ECG monitoring. Unlike the heart rate monitor, the ECG monitor attempts to check your heart rate for any irregularities, which could be a sign of something wrong. However, given that this is classified as a medical feature, it wasn’t available worldwide when it launched.
Over the years, Apple has introduced new health tracking capabilities to the Apple Watch. This came in the form of an ECG monitoring tool and with the Series 6, they also introduced blood oxygen monitoring. Now it seems that in the future, there could be an Apple Watch that could come with asthma monitoring.
The concept of creating artificial skin isn’t new. It also isn’t new that these skins can also be made to “feel” or sense the things that they touch, but now researchers at RMIT have taken things one step further by developing electronic artificial skin that can apparently allow for the sense of pain.
Just because a person survived and recovers from a heart attack doesn’t mean that they’re completely out of the woods. This is because heart attacks can cause further damage to the body that could actually lead to more complications or additional heart attacks later, but researchers think that they might be closer to solving that problem.
Even if you’ve never been in an MRI machine, chances are you might have seen it in use in television shows and movies. Usually this involves doctors telling patients that they’ll have to remain perfectly still in order for the machine to capture images, which can be a frustratingly slow process that can take as long as an hour.
To help prevent the COVID-19 virus from spreading even more than it should, many governments and health organizations around the world are recommending that we wear masks. However, there are many types of masks out there, ranging from the more surgical types to homemade cloth ones, but which masks are the best?
To help prevent the coronavirus from spreading, it has been recommended that we wear masks when out in public. However, the whole situation with masks has become quite politicized, with some people refusing to wear them. To remedy this, designer Allen Pan decided that he would create something that would essentially “force” masks onto people.
We’re sure many are eagerly looking forward to the day when they can leave their homes and not wear a mask and not worry about getting infected by the coronavirus. That day will come once a vaccine hits the market, but in the meantime, it seems that scientists at the University of California San Francisco have come up with a temporary workaround.
There is growing concern that because of the amount of antibiotics we are prescribed, that eventually our bodies will develop resistance against them which means that it will make it harder to fight off infections in the future, especially when we need to. However, thanks to a 1,000 medieval recipe, it appears that maybe a more natural antibiotic solution has been found.
The coronavirus pandemic is one of the worst pandemics we have experienced in recent times. It has not only resulted in people losing their jobs, businesses getting shut down, but it has also resulted in many, many people getting sick and dying. This is why there is a rush to develop a vaccine so that we can get back to some level of normalcy.
Face masks are encouraged in the current climate to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. For the most part, a lot of these masks are one-time use masks which are typically thrown away after you’re done with them. This does create quite a bit of a waste, which is why engineers at MIT and Bingham and Women’s Hospital have created a reusable N95 mask.
They say that dogs have the ability to sniff out cancer in people. As you might know, dogs have a very keen sense of smell, so the belief is that dogs are able to smell certain things in people that are being generated because of cancer. Based on that belief, it seems that over in Spain, dogs are being trained to sniff out COVID-19 in people.
The race is currently on to develop a vaccine for the coronavirus. This is because until a vaccine can be developed, life as we know it will not be returning to normal due to how easily the virus seems to be spreading from one person to another. However, there is some good news on the vaccine development front.
The reason why many governments and health officials around the world are recommending people to wear masks is because of how the coronavirus spreads. Research has shown that by wearing a mask, it does reduce the chance of the virus spreading, but recently, scientists have found growing evidence to suggest that the coronavirus could be transmitted through the air as well.
