High-Frequency Oscillations Recorded on the Scalp of Patients with Epilepsy Using Tripolar Concentric Ring Electrodes

Electroencephalography (EEG) is a noninvasive means for recording electrical activity of the brain. We have developed tripolar concentric ring electrodes (TCREs) and have shown that TCREs provide higher signal-to-noise ratios, higher spatial resolution, and less mutual information than conventional disc electrodes. This paper describes the results of a clinical study of patients with epilepsy to determine if high-frequency oscillations (HFOs) were present in EEG recorded with TCREs.

Effective CPR Procedure with Real Time Evaluation and Feedback Using Smartphones

Timely CPR can mean the difference between life and death. A trained person may not be available at emergency sites to give CPR. Normally, a 9-1-1 operator gives verbal instructions over the phone to a person giving CPR. In this paper, we discuss the use of smartphones to assist in administering CPR more efficiently and accurately. The two important CPR parameters are the frequency and depth of compressions…

μ-Foil Polymer Electrode Array for Intracortical Neural Recordings

We have developed a multichannel electrode array, termed μ-foil, that comprises ultrathin and flexible electrodes protruding from a thin foil at fixed distances. This study is an early evaluation of technical aspects and performance of this electrode array in acute in vitro/in vivo experiments. The in vivo acute measurements showed…

Postdoctoral Research Associate Position Available

Pharmacokinetics Research Laboratory within the Department of Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Rhode Island invites applications for up to 2 postdoctoral research associates. The laboratory is supported by various grants from the National Institutes of Health is located in a brand-new, state-of-the-art research facility.

Scope Statement

We focus on innovative solutions to healthcare needs from biomedical engineering, clinical engineering, and medical communities that bridge the engineering and clinical worlds. JTEHM's unique scope is original work at the intersection of engineering and clinical translation.

The journal’s focus is interdisciplinary collaborations among researchers, healthcare providers, and industry. We publish results and best practices from these translational efforts and serve as a community hub for researchers, clinicians, and developers who are addressing challenges in technology development, commercialization, and deployment for better global healthcare. Our ultimate goal is to improve the practice of engineering in translational medicine and to serve as a focal point for the nascent community. Our interactive content includes video, lively commentary, blogs, and other features to engage our clinical and engineering communities.
