Norepinephrine (NE), an endogenous catecholamine, is a mainstay treatment for septic shock, which is a life-threatening manifestation of severe infection. NE counteracts the loss in blood pressure associated with septic shock.
Management of heart failure is a major health care challenge. Healthcare providers are expected to use best practices described in clinical practice guidelines, which typically consist of a long series of complex rules.
This paper focuses on the development of a passive, lightweight skin patch sensor that can measure fluid volume changes in the heart in a non-invasive, point-of-care setting. The wearable sensor is an electromagnetic, self-resonant sensor configured into a specific pattern to formulate its three passive elements (resistance, capacitance, and inductance).
Effective management of neurogenic orthostatic hypotension and supine hypertension (SH-OH) due autonomic failure requires a frequent and timely adjustment of medication throughout the day to maintain the blood pressure (BP) within the normal range – i.e., an accurate depiction of BP is a key prerequisite of effective management. One of the emerging technologies that provide one’s circadian and long-term physiological status with increased usability is unobtrusive zero-effort monitoring.
The objective of this study was to examine changes in applied force and rate of chest compression (CC) during 5 min of CC with a target CC rate of 90/min (CC90) or 120/min (CC120) with and without metronome guidance during simulated neonatal CPR.
