How Do Bladder Scanners Work

What is a Bladder Scanner? The urinary bladder is an amazing organ that is made of smooth muscle. It stores urine and is capable of a tremendous amount of expansion and contraction until urine is released when you go to the bathroom. When you urinate, there should be little or no urine left in your bladder. The amount that’s left in the bladder is termed the post void residual or PVR. When post void residual frequently occurs, immediate medical assistance is necessary to avoid problems such as an enlarged prostate, urosepsis, urethral stricture, urinary tract infections and bladder dysfunction that could lead to pain and potential damage of the renal structures. In selecting the proper procedure to be done in order to evaluate your conditions, the noninvasive manner should be first considered. Bladder scanners are now commonly used by medical experts to utilize advanced technology for assessing residual urine. This…

The Future of Animal Testing

Throughout the years, animal research has evolved and advanced tremendously. Many of today’s top researchers use Studylog animal research software to track their professional findings because it helps keep the data more organized, it can be instantly analyzed, and it’s a great way to save time, money, and effort. Like most people, you might be wondering about the future of animal testing because you’d like to find out the fate of the animals. While it is definitely true that animals are being phased out of many types of research, they are still going to be used in biological, medical, and pharmaceutical research to a degree because it’s hard to perform tests without them in many cases. But we also want you to know that things are definitely changing. The use of animals in scientific research has good and bad aspects. Just know that when it’s possible to perform a study…

What is Biomedical Engineering?

We all study basic biology at school. We are taught the rudimentary facts about human and plant biology, from reproduction and the digestive system to photosynthesis and pollination. If you found biology mind-numbing, you probably didn’t pursue it past junior high, but if you enjoyed the subject, you may have elected to major in biology at college. Engineering is a different discipline, but it relates very well to biology. Do you have a passion for understanding how things work? If so, you might decide to major in engineering at college. But, if you also enjoy biology, the two subjects can be combined in biomedical engineering. So, what can you do with a master of engineering in biomedical engineering degree? Biomedical engineering is also known as bioengineering. It’s a fascinating subject; one that is very relevant in today’s world. Biomedical engineers apply the principles of engineering to biology, to solve clinical…

Using Technology For Medical Purposes

With the health care reform and medical taxes in such controversy, medical companies are turning to new and advanced technologies now more than ever to deliver cheaper, faster, and more effective products. In addition to this, you have probably seen many old medical devices get a complete makeover. Whatever the situation is, it really is no big secret that technology is completely taking the medical field by storm. Many individuals still believe that the approval process for these new technologies is unnecessary and too complex. However, it should be noted the FDA is focusing their efforts on simplifying the process. With all that being said, below you will learn about some of these new advanced technologies and how they are changing lives.

New way of using Electrical impedance tomography allows visualizing lung function with high accuracy

Electrial Impedance Tomography (EIT) has been known and studied since early 1980s. Multiple research groups have been working on various applications including monitoring of gastric emptying, lung monitoring, lung perfusion, cardiac and neurological function. Despite the big potential of EIT technology, it still hasn’t been implemented in normal clinical practice. It appears that other methods like CT and MRI are dominant. But CT is dangerous procedure especially if there is a need for constant monitoring. MRI in other hand is expensive and not always accessible. Implementing EIT measurement is really complex due to body bioelectrical properties and small signals reaching 100µV meaning that different impedance distributions can generate same results. A decade ago, technology has been improved that allows building better EIT devices that could allow monitoring patients in the intensive care unit without side effects. Recent breakthrough was made by TU Wien, the Medical University of Vienna and the…
