Prescience: Helping Doctors Predict the Future

University of Washington

UW engineers developed a new machine-learning system that can help anesthesiologists predict the likelihood that a patient will experience low blood oxygen levels during surgery. This condition, called hypoxemia, can lead to serious consequences, such as infections and abnormal heart behavior. The team’s system also gives real-world explanations behind its predictions. The researchers estimate that it could improve the ability of anesthesiologists to prevent 2.4 million more hypoxemia cases in the United States every year.

The Fine Print

University of Utah

A team of University of Utah biomedical engineers have developed a method to 3-D-print cells to produce human tissue such as ligaments and tendons to greatly improve a patient’s recovery. A person with a badly damaged ligament, tendon, or ruptured disc could simply have new replacement tissue printed and ultimately implanted in the damaged area.

Researchers Develop 3-D Printed Objects That Can Track and Store How They Are Used

University of Washington

Engineers at the University of Washington have developed 3-D printed devices that can track and store their own use — without using batteries or electronics. Instead, this system uses a method called backscatter, through which a device can share information by reflecting signals that have been transmitted to it with an antenna.

Scientists Forge Ahead with Electron Microscopy to Build Quantum Materials Atom by Atom

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

A novel technique that nudges single atoms to switch places within an atomically thin material could bring scientists another step closer to realizing theoretical physicist Richard Feynman’s vision of building tiny machines from the atom up.
