Mobile Apps Improve Atrial Fibrillation Detection

A new study has shown that mobile health (mHealth) devices are able to screen for the common cardiac disorder called atrial fibrillation (AF). This condition which affects about a million people in the UK denotes an irregular heartbeat (called arrhythmia) originating in the abnormal fluttering contraction of the heart’s upper chambers, or atria. In contrast, the normal…

Bacteria Are Becoming Increasingly Resistant To Common Antibiotic

The research study discovering antibiotic resistance does not spread only where; and when antibiotics are used in large quantities, ETH researchers conclude from laboratory experiments. Reducing antibiotic use alone is therefore not sufficient to curtail resistance; and should be done in conjunction with measures to prevent infection with resistant germs. Bacteria are becoming increasingly resistant…

Anatomical Feature Of The Cells Pack In The Epithelial Tissues

According to the study, researchers explaining the anatomical feature of the cells pack in the epithelial tissues; as the cells in an epithelial sheet are normally connecting by the Velcro-like structures called adhesive junctions and have a near-uniform size distribution. As a result, cells related by descent tend to stick together in mosaic patches referred…
