File Name: hand held devices in hospital setting and efficiency 2013 to 2019 .zip
The use of mobile devices by health care professionals HCPs has transformed many aspects of clinical practice. Mobile devices and apps provide many benefits for HCPs, perhaps most significantly increased access to point-of-care tools, which has been shown to support better clinical decision-making and improved patient outcomes. The introduction of mobile computing devices personal digital assistants [PDAs], followed by smartphones and tablet computers has greatly impacted many fields, including medicine.

The company's focus has always been to fulfill its social responsibility to provide for society in the best possible way and to help its global customers protect, support and save lives. KGaA achieved significant order intake and net sales growth in the first nine months of net of currency effects. The delivery of the order will start in and will stretch until the end of The expected net sales are roughly EUR million. The ultrasonic sensor allows the system to react more quickly than conventional gas detection technology, as it detects the sound of the leaking gases rather than the gas concentration of a gas cloud. To this end, the company will expand existing production sites in Sweden and Germany and build a completely new factory in France. Monitoring these sometimes very low values is a demanding task.
While mHealth has application for industrialized nations , the field has emerged in recent years as largely an application for developing countries , stemming from the rapid rise of mobile phone penetration in low-income nations. The field, then, largely emerges as a means of providing greater access to larger segments of a population in developing countries, as well as improving the capacity of health systems in such countries to provide quality healthcare. The field broadly encompasses the use of mobile telecommunication and multimedia technologies in health care delivery. The term mHealth was coined by Robert Istepanian as use of "emerging mobile communications and network technologies for healthcare". While there are some projects that are considered solely within the field of mHealth, the linkage between mHealth and eHealth is unquestionable. Thus, eHealth projects many times operate as the backbone of mHealth projects. In a similar vein, while not clearly bifurcated by such a definition, eHealth can largely be viewed as technology that supports the functions and delivery of healthcare, while mHealth rests largely on providing healthcare access.

Mobile phone use while driving is common but it is widely considered dangerous due to its potential for causing distracted driving and crashes. Due to the number of crashes that are related to conducting calls on a phone and texting while driving, some jurisdictions have made the use of calling on a phone while driving illegal. Many jurisdictions have enacted laws to ban handheld mobile phone use. Nevertheless, many jurisdictions allow use of a hands-free device. Driving while using a hands-free device is not safer than using a handheld phone to conduct calls, as concluded by case-crossover studies,   epidemiological,   simulation,  and meta-analysis.
Mobile devices and apps provide many benefits for HCPs, perhaps most significantly mobile devices in a wide variety of clinical settings ranging from classrooms to hospitals.

The Strategy That Will Fix Health Care
In health care, the days of business as usual are over. Around the world, every health care system is struggling with rising costs and uneven quality, despite the hard work of well-intentioned, well-trained clinicians. At its core is maximizing value for patients: that is, achieving the best outcomes at the lowest cost. We must move away from a supply-driven health care system organized around what physicians do and toward a patient-centered system organized around what patients need. We must shift the focus from the volume and profitability of services provided—physician visits, hospitalizations, procedures, and tests—to the patient outcomes achieved.
Nosocomial infections NIs are known worldwide and remain a major problem despite scientific and technical advances in the field of health. The severity of the infection depends on the characteristics of the microorganisms involved and the high frequency of resistant pathogens in the hospital environment. The aim of this study is to determine the distribution of pathogenic bacteria and their resistance to antibiotics that spread on hospital surfaces, more specifically, on those of various departments in the Provincial Hospital Center PHC of Mohammedia, Morocco. A cross-sectional study was conducted from March to April Samples were collected by swabbing the hospital surfaces, and the isolated bacteria were checked for their susceptibility to antibiotics by the Kirby—Bauer disk diffusion method following the standards of the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute CLSI.
Contamination of the Surfaces of a Health Care Environment by Multidrug-Resistant (MDR) Bacteria
The technology revolution in the miniaturization of electronic devices is enabling to design more reliable and adaptable wearables, contributing for a world-wide change in the health monitoring approach. In this paper we review important aspects in the WHDs area, listing the state-of-the-art of wearable vital signs sensing technologies plus their system architectures and specifications. A focus on vital signs acquired by WHDs is made: first a discussion about the most important vital signs for health assessment using WHDs is presented and then for each vital sign a description is made concerning its origin and effect on heath, monitoring needs, acquisition methods and WHDs and recent scientific developments on the area electrocardiogram, heart rate, blood pressure, respiration rate, blood oxygen saturation, blood glucose, skin perspiration, capnography, body temperature, motion evaluation, cardiac implantable devices and ambient parameters. A general WHDs system architecture is presented based on the state-of-the-art. After a global review of WHDs, we zoom in into cardiovascular WHDs, analysing commercial devices and their applicability versus quality, extending this subject to smart t-shirts for medical purposes. Furthermore we present a resumed evolution of these devices based on the prototypes developed along the years.
Wearable technologies can be innovative solutions for healthcare problems. In this study, we conducted a literature review of wearable technology applications in healthcare. Some wearable technology applications are designed for prevention of diseases and maintenance of health, such as weight control and physical activity monitoring. Wearable devices are also used for patient management and disease management. The wearable applications can directly impact clinical decision making. Some believe that wearable technologies could improve the quality of patient care while reducing the cost of care, such as patient rehabilitation outside of hospitals. The big data generated by wearable devices is both a challenge and opportunity for researchers who can apply more artificial intelligence AI techniques on these data in the future.

Artificial intelligence in healthcare is an overarching term used to describe the use of machine-learning algorithms and software, or artificial intelligence AI , to mimic human cognition in the analysis, presentation, and comprehension of complex medical and health care data. Specifically, AI is the ability of computer algorithms to approximate conclusions based solely on input data. What distinguishes AI technology from traditional technologies in health care is the ability to gather data, process it and give a well-defined output to the end-user. AI does this through machine learning algorithms and deep learning. These algorithms can recognize patterns in behavior and create their own logic. To gain useful insights and predictions, machine learning models must be trained using extensive amounts of input data. AI algorithms behave differently from humans in two ways: 1 algorithms are literal: once a goal is set, the algorithm learns exclusively from the input data and can only understand what it has been programmed to do, 2 and some deep learning algorithms are black boxes ; algorithms can predict with extreme precision, but offer little to no comprehensible explanation to the logic behind its decisions aside from the data and type of algorithm used.
Спустя три мучительные секунды все еще ничего не произошло. Сирены по-прежнему выли. Пять секунд. Шесть секунд. - Утечка информации.
Но мой брат… - Сэр, если ваш брат целый день целовался в парке с девчонкой, то это значит, что она работает не в нашем агентстве. У нас очень строгие правила относительно контактов клиента и сопровождающего. - Но… - Вы спутали нас с кем-то другим.
У нас были бы красивые дети, - подумал. - Чем ты занята? - спросил Хейл, пробуя иной подход. Сьюзан ничего не ответила. - Я вижу, ты выдающийся командный игрок. Может быть, можно взглянуть? - Он встал и начал обходить круг терминалов, двигаясь по направлению к .
Я тебя разбудил. Она улыбнулась и поудобнее устроилась в постели. - Ты мне только что приснился. Приходи поиграть. - На улице еще темно, - засмеялся .
Я просто не желаю играть вторую скрипку - тем более по отношению к подростку. - Моя жена вовсе не подросток, - возмутился Бринкерхофф. - Она просто так себя ведет. Мидж посмотрела на него с удивлением. - Я вовсе не имела в виду твою жену.
В служебных помещениях ТРАНСТЕКСТА было черно как глубокой ночью. Минуту он наслаждался полной темнотой. Сверху хлестала вода, прямо как во время полночного шторма.
Мидж, - беззвучно выдавил он, - черт тебя дери. В шифровалке все в порядке! - Телефон не унимался. Джабба принялся устанавливать на место новый чип. Через минуту его усилия увенчались успехом, а телефон все звонил и звонил. Христа ради, Мидж.
Так появился апельсиновый мармелад. Халохот пробирался между деревьями с пистолетом в руке. Деревья были очень старыми, с высокими голыми стволами. Даже до нижних веток было не достать, а за неширокими стволами невозможно спрятаться.
Беккер был уверен, что представляет собой отличную мишень, даже несмотря на то что находился среди огромного множества прихожан: его пиджак цвета хаки ярко выделялся на черном фоне. Вначале он хотел снять его, но белая оксфордская рубашка была бы ничуть ни лучше, поэтому он лишь пригнулся еще ниже.
