[Medical devices classification: principles and quality management].
Medical device market covers a large rank of references and is characterized by a lack of standardization in products naming. Using a specific classification is the first step to ensure a good analysis and a specific follow up of this market. CLADIMED is the classification for medica...
National minimum standards for community equipment services.
There are approximately 10 million pieces of community equipment delivered to 3.5 million clients every year in England and Wales. The service is key for moving people safely around the whole health and social care system, and is used by almost every clinical professional working in the community. I...
Instructions included? Make safety training part of medical device procurement process.
Before hospitals embrace new technologies, it's important that medical personnel agree on how best to use them. Likewise, hospitals must provide the support to operate these sophisticated devices safely. With this in mind, it's wise for hospitals to include medical device training in the procurement...
Performance analysis of a proposed tightly-coupled medical instrument network based on CAN protocol.
International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2010:360 (2010) PMID 21096975Advances in medical devices and health care has been phenomenal during the recent years. Although medical device manufacturers have been improving their instruments, network connection of these instruments still rely on proprietary technologies. Even if the interface has been provide...
Internal validation of a telemedical system for monitoring patients with chronic respiratory diseases.
International Conference of the IEEE Engineerin... 2010:2172 (2010) PMID 21096156One of the most promising and innovative developments in medicine are telemedical systems. The system PulmoTel 2010 and its internal validation are presented, focusing on the system architecture, hardware, software and communication solutions. PulmoTel 2010 consists of a distant serv...
Oxygen concentrators: a practical guide for clinicians and technicians in developing countries.
Hypoxaemia is a common problem causing child deaths in developing countries, but the cost-effective ways to address hypoxaemia are ignored by current global strategies. Improving oxygen supplies and the detection of hypoxaemia has been shown to reduce death rates from childhood pneumonia by up to 35...
Working together to achieve more.
Transcatheter closure of patent ductus arteriosus with a self-expanding platinum-coated nitinol device.
The devices were successfully deployed in all 60 patients. There were no serious procedural complications. Color Doppler demonstrated complete occlusion rate of 78.3%, 90.0% and 100% at 1 day, 1 month and 1 year after implantation, respectively. There was no statistical difference in serum nickel co...
[Equipment for diagnostics, laboratory analyses and treatment in out-of-hours services].
223/261 (86 %) of the services responded. 150 used the same office as a day-time practice, 59 had their own office and 14 were localised in a hospital/ emergency care unit. Services located in GP surgeries with a daytime-practice had a wider range of equipment, laboratory tests and medicines. Physic...
