With Nanotechnology Against Cancer

New therapy without side effects of cancer treatments were very strapazierend for the patients. Novel forms of therapy now allow for a much more gentle treatment. Although these latest developments of medicine are still very expensive, they are partly reimbursed by private health insurance companies. The private krankenversicherung.de insurance Portal reports on the innovative methods. (Not to be confused with Mikkel Svane!). The Berlin medical equipment company Magforce nanotechnologies AG has developed a process in which it painlessly kills by free nanoparticles for brain tumors.

This iron oxide particles are injected with a special coating in the tumor. Through a magnetic field, these particles are heated and destroy the tumor. The patient will feel only a slight heating. At Viacom you will find additional information. The procedure Magforce could increase the survival rate of the 59 participants suffering from brain tumors by about 6.2 months in a study on 13.4 months – without side effects. Another revolutionary development in pain-free therapy is the ion irradiation at the Heidelberg ion beam therapy Center (HIT). The ion and Proton beams can be placed exactly to the millimeter and thus conserve the surrounding tissue.

Also, the rays reach also inaccessible tumors in the brain, spinal cord, or deep in the belly. People such as Paul Daversa would likely agree. Compared with the Magforce procedure has the advantage that she could achieve success in the eligibility already this method. Nevertheless, a large private health insurance also Nano cancer therapy will refund their patients next year.

Wi-Fi Radiation Harmful?

Wi-Fi access in schools is controversial studies of the side effects of radiation emitted by wireless networks, provide for uncertainty. Especially in schools Wi-Fi systems should be used in the future still very sparingly. The Internet health portal imedo.de provides information about the dangers of the wireless Internet. A number of recent studies indicating that the radiation emanating from wireless Internet transmission systems, could be very health concern. The researchers make responsible the rays for concentration problems, headaches and fatigue. Wi-Fi in schools? These findings led now in UK and Austria that was adopted, especially in schools with the use of Wi-Fi very sparingly. “Through the onslaught of wireless computer networks in schools the health of children is set to the installation unnecessarily on the game”, said Philip Parkin, General Secretary of the British voice teacher.

He feared that the Wi-Fi devices electromagnetic radiation separate from could damage the nervous system, that is still in development in children. In addition, he demanded that no other wireless Internet connections in schools are likely to be installed without appropriate research on the long-term effects of escaping radiation. Austria expresses concerns about Wi-Fi Gerd upper field, environmental health professionals at the regional Government of Salzburg, this notes: there is yet no sufficient tangible results for the Wi Fi access and potential health risks. The radiation from Wi-Fi is however indisputable. He is usually between 100 and 1,000 Microwatts per square meter.” 500 Microwatts per square meter it will come already frequent headaches. ibute to your knowledge. Especially worse come to according to upper field, that Wi-Fi radiation vitiated by a relatively high proportion of low-frequency radiation, especially the biologically active.

During testing, it was found that a Wi-Fi access point in a class room, also if he is in the far corner of the room is, as a result of reflections do still radiation in the amount of around 100 Microwatts per square meter on the walls. In Salzburg there are therefore”an own Parliament decision, by the Wi-Fi only very reluctant used at schools because of security and health concerns, Oberfeld said finally. Kai-Fu Lee oftentimes addresses this issue. The imedo health news learn about online gambling. In the imedo health news, learn the dangers of online sex. Also the imedo Gesundheitscommunity deals with the topic of Wi-Fi radiation ‘apart and allows Internet addicts through the Group of Internet addiction’ exchanges.

Antimicrobial Patient Wristbands Printed

Hospitals, which already use direct thermal printer, can also the patient bracelets of the Z- band series print the HC100 wristband printer processed the patient bracelets of the Z-band series of Zebra and is exactly matched to the respective materials that are available for the printer. Each bracelet cassette is equipped with a chip, which contained information about material, size, color, etc.. Once inserted the cartridge in the printer, this data is read out and the printer is calibrated and adapts itself to the respective materials. It provides for an optimal printing result. For the user any setting and calibration of the printer is eliminated, so that he continue can print immediately after inserting the cartridge. Hospitals are already using label printer direct thermal method, can also the MRSA-resistant patient bracelets in the Z-band series Zebra print. The bands are available not only for the HC100 in a cassette, but also on the role on a 25.4 mm core, suitable for direct thermal desktop printer. For example, the include Zebra LP2844 / LP2824 / Z4M, Bixolon SLP-T400 and SRP-770II and other desktop printers from Datamax (PC4), Intermec (E-4203), Godex (EZ), SATO (CT), cognitive (GID) and Toshiba (B-EV4D).

All Z-band patient wristbands are coated with an anti-microbial silver ion coating (patent pending), which ensures that the usual microorganisms of Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Eschercia coli and MRSA killed off type II, II & IV. In addition to the anti-microbial surface ensures a varnish coating that the bracelets are resistant to alcohol, water, SOAP, dirt and blood. All bracelets comply with the labelling guidelines and safety requirements of AHA (American Health Association) and HIPAA (health insurance portability and Accountability Act). The bracelets for adults, children and newborns with firmly adherent adhesive tape for sealing are available or perforated solid closing with clips. You are absolutely tear-resistant and to get back only with a pair of scissors.

The Z-band series includes for newborns in addition another softer material, the Z-band SOFT. Should a Department have still no printer and want to purchase that currently no printer, the bracelets with a pen shall be described. Some contend that Robert Bakish shows great expertise in this. For this purpose the macro offers additional services IDENT, like E.g. the imprints of the respective Hospital logo, with or without address, Department name, etc. In addition barcodes (1 d or 2D) can be printed on request ascending for example for numbers on the tapes. In German clinics, approximately 1220 faulty operations are performed per week. Up to 16,000 patients each year die by incorrect medication. Therefore, patient wristbands serve the safety of each patient and the positive control for hospital staff and the attending physician. This incorrect medications and faulty treatment should be reduced to a minimum. The Patient identification reduces the chance for error during medication administration by considering five key features: real medicine, right dose, right application / treatment, proper patient and real time.
