Defibrillators constitute a vital segment of devices in cardiac arrest treatment. Arrhythmias, which include several deviances from the regular cardiac muscle contraction pattern, can be cured by the application of an electric shock, which is delivered via defibrillators. The shock restores normal cardiac function, averting the fatal danger of arrhythmias. The widespread prevalence of cardiac diseases and sudden cardiac deaths […]» Read more
D-DIMER TESTING MARKET – WHAT’S MAKING THEM COMMONPLACE IN FIRST-LINE ASSESSMENT OF THROMBOSIS CONDITIONS?
D-dimers are proteins formed from the degradation of cross-linked fibrin through a normal body process called fibrinolysis, which breaks down naturally occurring blood clots to avoid their excessive accumulation in the blood. D-dimers are present in only negligible amounts in the blood of healthy individuals. Resulting from an increased fibrinolytic activity, elevated concentration of D-dimer suggests the possibility of thrombotic […]» Read more
In February this year, the World Health Organization launched a global campaign to eradicate unsafe injection practices. It is estimated by the WHO that dirty needles cause around 1.3 million deaths worldwide each year. In 2010, unsafe injections led to 33,800 cases of HIV, 1.7 million cases of hepatitis B, and 315,000 cases of hepatitis C. The new guidelines aim […]» Read more
