Nerve conduction velocity test (NCV): a Diagnostic tool, Working and Risk

A nerve conduction velocity test determines how quickly electrical impulses travel through the body's nerves. Learn about the nerve conduction velocity, or NCV, test's application, typical outcomes, and potential adverse effects in this article. NCV as a diagnostic tool An NCV test is used to check for nerve injury. An electrical current is used to directly stimulate a nerve during the test to observe how it responds. A range of muscular and neuromuscular diseases can be diagnosed with NCV tests. In some cases, electromyograms, often known as EMGs, are performed along with NCV tests. EMGs are also used by doctors...

Understanding Myocarditis: Symptoms, Diagnosis, Treatment and Prevention 10 Aug

Understanding Myocarditis: Symptoms, Diagnosis, Treatment and Prevention

Myocarditis is a medical condition that causes the inflammation of the myocardium which is the muscle layer of your heart’s wall. This disease reduces the heart’s ability to pump out blood as it directly affects the heart muscle and electrical systems in our body. This eventually leads to several potential complications like arrhythmia, cardiomyopathy, an abnormal or rapid heartbeat. What Causes Myocarditis? Viral infections can be a known cause for myocarditis as inflammation occurs as a body’s response to fighting infections. However, it can also be caused by more systemic inflammatory disorders like autoimmune diseases. The heart muscle weakens to...

How modular patient monitors can optimize workflow in operating rooms and help reduce financial strain on HCOs

Healthcare professionals worldwide rely on highly accurate patient monitors to improve their quality of care. These monitors measure five vital signs of patients that include ECG, SpO2, non-invasive blood pressure (NIBP), temperature, and respiration. Patient monitors displaying these vital signs are an essential part of every clinic, hospital or healthcare organization and help doctors, nurses and operation theatre staff monitor the patient’s progress and well-being. Measuring specialized parameters In addition to the parameters listed above, healthcare professionals often require monitoring of specialized parameters that include: EtCO2 - End-tidal CO2 - carbon dioxide content in expired air IBP - Invasive blood...

Using high flow nasal cannulas to reduce mortality rates during COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has just completed its second anniversary in 2022. With new viral mutations coming out nearly every few months, COVID-19 has essentially forced people to “live with it”. However, this has also put a significant strain on healthcare systems worldwide. Overwhelmed healthcare facilities As the infection spreads quickly amongst the population, critically ill patients are referred to hospitals in the hundreds, overwhelming available facilities and making it difficult to ensure quality care. Patients suffering from end-stage or advanced stages of coronavirus disease often need respiratory support due to the nature of the disease. In extreme cases, it requires...

Improving Accuracy Rates In Blood Pressure Measurement 08 Mar

Improving Accuracy Rates In Blood Pressure Measurement

We live in the digital age. Today, most of us are highly aware of what is going on around us and the world—all thanks to technology. Additionally, most of us are also highly aware of our health and staying fit and healthy. With the advent of wearables that can quickly measure SpO2 or blood oxygen saturation, ECG, and even blood pressure, it has become easy for us to monitor our health at any time. However, most of these devices are not as accurate as we would want them to be. Additionally, wearables and off-the-counter blood pressure measurement devices can give...
