Why should medical employers should install like air purification solutions throughout their hospitals?
Since hospital-acquired infections are a major problem in health care facilities, employers should install engineering controls like air purification solutions throughout these buildings to prevent the chance of infection.

The possibility of #cyberattack grows as health data becomes increasingly digital
The health world is flirting with disaster, say the experts who monitor crime in cyberspace.

"For too long, the American health care system has prioritized fixing acute problems over managing long-term well-being" I could not agree more!

I also think that there should be some sort of certification that apps can obtain that vouches for their reliability in the case of treatment management. And maybe also one that focuses on the reliability of different measurement such as heart rate and glucose level.

Funny. I remember we talked about putting a glass box on the wall at nursing stations with a small hammer to be used to break in and get access to the old paper order forms if the EHR system started to fail.

Sources of air impurities in hospitals include biological pollutants, such as bacteria, pollen and particles from pests, according to the American Lung Association. These may result in infection for patients, which could prolong their hospital stays and put their lives at risk.
Medical facilities managers may want to install air purification equipment to protect workers and patients from the harmful effects of indoor air pollutants and other chemicals present in hospitals.

Substantial Dose Reduction Possible in CT of Pleural Effusions
#diagnosticimaging #lowdose #CT 

Pleural effusions, thickening and calcification may be detected on low-dose computed tomography (CT) using filtered back projection images at doses as low as 2 mGy, or at a dose of 0.8 mGy in cases with moderate to large effusions, according to a new study of human cadavers published in the American Journal of Roentgenology.

Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease
#diagnosticimaging 

A 45-year-old female presented with vague pain in the abdomen. A USG was ordered, which revealed that both kidneys were enlarged and had innumerable cysts with minimal intervening parenchyma (Figure 1A and 1B). An ill-defined hyperechoic area with posterior acoustic shadowing was seen in the left kidney. The ureters and bladder were normal. A few similar cysts were also seen in the liver (Figure 2). The findings were confirmed on a plain CT scan which revealed bilateral nephromegaly and cysts in both kidneys and the liver.

The Achilles' heel of internally managing data #security
Thanks to instituted regulations businesses such as healthcare organizations, universities, and data centers are implementing actions to secure their private and sensitive data. However, although compliance is great, it isn't enough.
