Penn Study Finds Men Are More Likely To Receive CPR in Public than Women

When it comes to your likelihood of receiving bystander CPR if you experience a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in public, it turns out your gender may play a lifesaving role. According to a new study from researchers in the Center for Resuscitation Science at Penn Medicine, which is being presented at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions 2017, men are more likely to receive bystander CPR in public than women.

Sepsis: The Unknown Medical Emergency

Darby1.jpg

Little-known sepsis is a medical emergency, a life-threatening condition caused by an overwhelming response by the body to infection. It's a leading cause of in-hospital death, and one of the most expensive conditions for U.S. hospitals. Forty percent of patients diagnosed with severe sepsis die, and half of the survivors suffer from a debilitating condition known as post-sepsis syndrome. Sepsis has also been named the most expensive in-patient cost in American hospitals, according to a study published by the Agency of Healthcare Research Policy. Costs to hospitals in 2014 reached nearly $24 billion.

How a $10 Microchip Turns 2-D Ultrasound Machines to 3-D Imaging Devices

Technology that keeps track of how your smartphone is oriented can now give $50,000 ultrasound machines many of the 3-D imaging abilities of their $250,000 counterparts — for the cost of a $10 microchip. Doctors and engineers from Duke and Stanford universities will demonstrate their device Oct. 31 at the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) Research Forum in Washington, D.C.
