(UCLA Magazine) — A look at how the “Internet of Everything” is being embraced by medical researchers at UCLA, including the team behind AbStats.
(Reuters Health) -- A new bowel-sound sensor can be used to assess patients for postoperative ileus, according to a validation study by its inventors.
(medGadget) -- Post-operative ileus (POI) is defined as “the absence of intestinal peristalsis without mechanical obstruction”. It is a serious condition that can make recovery from surgery a challenge. Now a new device developed at UCLA that autonomously listens to gut sounds to evaluate how things are moving down there has been shown to be [...]
(FierceMedicalDevices) -- “Listen to your body” is good advice for healthy living, and University of California, Los Angeles, researchers have developed a device that does just that in order to determine how soon patients should be fed following surgery.
(UCLA Newsroom) -- A disposable plastic listening device that attaches to the abdomen may help doctors definitively determine which post-operative patients should be fed and which should not, an invention that may improve outcomes, decrease healthcare costs and shorten hospital stays, according to a UCLA study.
