Considerable outside funding will be required to overcome the financial shortfalls faced by most of Africa's protected areas. Given limited levels of external support, it will be essential to allocate these funds wisely. While most recent studies on conservation triage have recommended prioritizing reserves with the highest remaining conservation value (the "last best places"), such investments are complicated by the fact that these same reserves often attract the greatest revenues from ecotourism and thus ...
Good research evidence exists to suggest that social determinants of health, including access to housing, nutrition, and transportation, can influence health outcomes and health care use for vulnerable populations. Yet adequate, sustainable financing for interventions that improve social determinants of health has eluded most if not all US communities. This article argues that underinvestment in social determinants of health stems from the fact that such investments are in effect public goods, and thus bene...
Annual rates of knee arthroplasty are increasing in all developed countries, imposing a significant economic and organizational burden; it is crucial to forecast the future need for knee arthroplasty, to assist stakeholders in planning strategies and investments, especially in a country like Italy, with the largest proportion of elderly citizens in Europe. Few epidemiological studies have been performed worldwide to estimate the demand for future knee replacement, and a variety of methods have been proposed...
Over the last three decades, various biotech companies, mostly in North America, have become experts in the production, processing and analysis of large volumes of genetic data. They have surpassed the performance of traditional academic platforms, by appropriating a new economic model: the two-sided market. Thus, by applying web 2.0 ideas, these biotech companies have made it possible for millions of users to produce and "share" data including genetic data, with each other and with third parties through a...
Investments, especially fixed asset investments, greatly affect carbon dioxide (CO) emissions. When investments are concentrated in regions with high CO emissions and high fossil energy consumption, the CO emission reduction targets in these areas are difficult to reach in the short term, and the cost of CO emission abatement is high. The current CO emission regulations focus on existing production activities and consumption behaviors. However, whether an investment, which may affect CO emissions in the lon...
The field of bioelectronics has paved the way for the development of biochips, biomedical devices, biosensors and biocomputation devices. Various biosensors and biomedical devices have been developed to commercialize laboratory products and transform them into industry products in the clinical, pharmaceutical, environmental fields. Recently, the electrochemical bioelectronic devices that mimicked the functionality of living organisms in nature were applied to the use of bioelectronics device and biosensors....
Recently, the first 7-Tesla MR system was approved for clinical use in Europe and the United States. Unfortunately, few metallic objects have undergone testing in association with this high-field-strength scanner, including essential equipment such as patient support devices and other items. Therefore, the objective of this investigation was to assess metallic patient support devices and other items for translational attraction at 7-Tesla.
Worldwide experience in transcatheter tricuspid valve intervention is increasing as more options become available for the treatment of severe tricuspid regurgitation. These devices can be categorized by their primary mechanism of action, including edge-to-edge leaflet devices, space occupying devices, annuloplasty devices, complete valve replacement and caval valve implantation. This review summarizes the current technologies in use, early clinical results and factors that may affect procedural success.
All surgical meshes entering the U.S. market have been cleared for clinical use by the 510(k) process of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in which devices simply require proof of "substantial equivalence" to predicate devices, without the need for clinical trials. However, recalled meshes associated with adverse effects may, indirectly, continue to serve as predicates for new devices raising concerns over the safety of the 510(k) route.
Newly developed patch pumps are starting to occupy a noticeable fraction of the insulin delivery market. New entrants, using novel technologies, promise accurate, flexible insulin delivery at lower costs. In the section, we review the currently available devices, discuss some of the devices on the horizon, and speculate about some fascinating new approaches. In this first article, we provide an overview of the simplified devices-V-Go, PAQ, and One Touch Via-and of the more complex devices-Omnipod, Cellnovo,...
In the last two decades, the increased number of implants of cardiac implantable electronic devices has been accompanied by an increase in complications, especially infection. Current recommendations for the appropriate treatment of cardiac implantable electronic devices-related infections consist of prolonged antibiotic therapy associated with complete device extraction. The purpose of this study was to analyze the importance of percutaneous extraction in the treatment of these devices infections.
Cardiovascular devices and hemodynamic monitoring systems continue to evolve with the goal of allowing for rapid clinical intervention and management. Cardiovascular devices including the CardioMicroelectromechanical (CardioMEMS) device, implantable loop recorder, and right ventricular (RV) leadless pacemaker are now widely used for treatment and monitoring of advanced cardiac conditions, as many of these devices have been shown to significantly improve patient outcomes. Additionally, hemodynamic monitoring...
Background E-cigarette use rates are high among youth, but there is limited information on the types of e-cigarette devices that are used by youth. Methods During Spring 2017, students from 4 high schools completed surveys on use of e-cigarette devices (cig-a-like, vape/hookah pen, modified devices or mods, and JUUL). Among youth who endorsed ever (lifetime) use of an e-cigarette and of at least one device (n = 875), we assessed 1) prevalence rates of ever and current (past-month) use of each device, 2)...
Despite major advancements in cancer treatments, there are still many limitations to therapy including off-target effects, drug resistance, and control of cancer-related symptoms. There are opportunities for local drug delivery devices to intervene at various stages of cancer to provide curative and palliative benefit. Iontophoretic devices that deliver drugs locally to a region of interest have been adapted for the treatment of cancer. These devices have shown promise in pre-clinical and clinical studies f...
Evaluation of the long-term efficiency of MIGS implants is still challenging, due to the lack of standardized clinical studies of stand-alone procedures. Moreover, the different mechanisms of the various glaucoma drainage devices are not adequately considered. The current study focusses on the development of a method for oculopression to evaluate the efficiency of glaucoma drainage devices.
Simple thermal devices providing reliable data are needed to detect somatosensory disturbances in non-specialized clinical settings. Currently, evidence is lacking about their use. Therefore, the aim was to compare the assessment of perceived thermal sensitivity/pain in healthy humans with a state-of-the-art thermotester and with simple inexpensive customized thermal aluminum devices.
One question that has remained unexplored in the global land rush debate is how large-scale land acquisitions affect health and wellbeing of local populations. As part of a larger study, this study advances our understanding in this area by applying the concept of therapeutic landscapes to analyze interviews conducted in two coastal communities in Tanzania where land investments have been prevalent. Our analysis found that local populations perceived traditional lands with sacred sites as therapeutic spaces...
This review takes an approach to implanted medical devices that considers whether the intention of the implanted device is to have any communication of energy or materials with the body. The first part describes some specific examples of 3 different classes of implants, analysed with regards to the type of signal sent to cells. Through several examples, we describe that a one way signalling to the body leads to encapsulation or degradation. In most cases, those phenomena do not lead to major problems. Howev...
