Previous research identified that Australia lagged behind the United Kingdom and New Zealand in medicines reclassification. This study aimed to identify Australian pharmacists' opinions on the current state of medicines reclassification; the prescription medicines consumers requested without prescription; the medicines pha...
Poor quality use of medicines (QUM) has adverse outcomes. Governments' implementation of essential medicines (EM) policies is often suboptimal and there is limited information on which policies are most effective.
When the medical devices and equipment in an operating room are connected to a network, vast amounts of data concerning the progress of the operation and the patient's condition can be comprehensively processed to improve the precision and safety of the surgical procedure. To make this possible, a next-generation networked operating room, "Smart Cyber Operating Theater" (SCOT), has been developed with medical-engineer cooperation, which integrates standalone medical devices using the "OPeLiNK" communication...
It is important to ascertain platelet responses to blood-contacting medical devices as part of a complete hemocompatibility evaluation. Nevertheless, researchers often face the problem of insufficient quantities of human blood for evaluation of platelet activation by actual medical devices. If animal blood can replace human blood to evaluate platelet activation by medical devices, testing will be smoother and will aid for quality control of related products. Therefore, in this study, we exposed representati...
Medical devices are sterilized before being used for invasive clinical procedures such as surgery, to prevent pathogen transfer. Failure to sterilize medical devices properly presents a risk of healthcare-associated infections. Studies and reports have indicated that inadequately sterilized medical devices are one of the causes of a higher rate of healthcare-associated infections in developing countries. Steam sterilization (autoclaving) is the most widely used method for sterilization and is considered the...
