first_img Business News 6 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Today at the WearableTech LA conference, a panel of experts will discuss implantable technology—items that can be placed in a body for a variety of medical reasons, including to monitor, heal, adjust or improve health in ways that non-embedded devices cannot.The panel, called “Wearables: Everything Ingestible, Implantable,” will run from 3:00 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. in the Pasadena Convention Center where the conference is taking place. It will be moderated by Dan Rosenbaum, editor-in-chief of Center Ring Media’s Wearable Tech Insider and a veteran technology journalist. Panelists are:• Eric Olson, Director of Design, Karten Design;• Dr. Victor Pikov, Bioelectronics R&D Consultant at GSK (Glaxo Smith Kline) and Senior Scientist for Huntington Medical Research Institute); and• Joshua Windmiller, CEO, Electrozyme.“Implantable technology sounds kind of freaky,” said Rosenbaum, “but the first implanted cardiac pacemakers date from 1958 and have been changing lives for the better ever since. As technology gets smaller and more powerful, and as medical science understands the human body better, implantables are a technical frontier that’s just starting to come into view. Most people aren’t aware of all the intensely cool early work being done in this space, such as what these panelists’ companies are working on. Imagine a device that automatically monitors and regulates insulin production in diabetics, or something that detects hypoxia in pilots and warns them to adjust oxygen levels. We’re way past fitness trackers here. It should be a very interesting discussion.”A technology journalist for more than 30 years and an award-winning writer, Dan Rosenbaum covers wearable technology on his blog, Wearable Tech Insider, which addresses new products, corporate news and technology developments in the world of in wearable technology.

How to Tell if Someone Is Having a Heart Attack

first_img Share 44 Views   no discussions Although you’re probably familiar with the classic heart attack scenario from movies and TV, most people don’t just clutch their chests and fall to the ground.Heart attacks usually start slowly, with mild pain or discomfort, or even more subtle flu-like symptoms. Heart attack symptoms can be subtle, and it’s not always easy to tell what’s happening.But if someone is having a heart attack, every second counts: There’s a limited window of time before heart muscle is permanently damaged. Delaying treatment also increases the risk of sudden death from an irregular heart rhythm.To give someone the best possible chance of recovery, it’s wise to familiarize yourself with the warning signs of a heart attack.Remember that all heart attacks are not equal: Even if you’ve seen someone have a heart attack before, a second heart attack or a heart attack in someone else might not have the same symptoms.Pay special attention to heart attack symptoms in women Although many people mistakenly believe that cardiovascular disease isn’t a problem for women, it’s still a leading cause of death. Unfortunately, women tend to have different heart attack symptoms than men, so heart disease may go unrecognized until it’s too late.In a study of 515 women who’d had heart attacks, the most frequently reported symptoms were unusual fatigue, sleep disturbances, shortness of breath, indigestion, and anxiety. Less than one-third reported any chest discomfort.How to respond if you see signs of a heart attack In general, it’s best to call 911 if you have any reason to suspect that someone is having a heart attack. Waiting even an hour or two may limit treatment options and reduce the chance of a full recovery. It’s common for someone having a heart attack to downplay the situation because he or she isembarrassed and doesn’t want to cause a scene.Take charge and call for help even if the person tries to talk you out of it. Don’t wait to see if heart attack symptoms go away — and call even if the symptoms do disappear or come and go. If it turns out to be something less serious than a heart attack, at least you’ll have some peace of mind.Bear in mind that not all of the following warning signs occur in every heart attack.The five signs of heart attack:Chest discomfort or painThe most commonly reported heart attack symptom among men is chest discomfort, often described as a heaviness, tightness, or even a burning sensation. The feeling usually starts in the center of the chest and may or may not radiate to other areas of the body. It may go away and then come back, or it may be continuous. If you’re aware of someone experiencing any persistent chest discomfort, call 911 right away. Even if it’s angina rather than a full-blown heart attack, he needs to see a doctor.
