Heart Rhythm Disorders Can Be Reduced By Wearable Defibrillators

A new study examined that Wearable cardioverter defibrillators vest-like devices that deliver electric shocks to interrupt a dangerous heart rhythm may be a safe and effective alternative to surgically implanted devices in children with ventricular heart rhythm disorders that put them at risk for sudden cardiac death. The study was published in Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology, an American Heart Association journal.

Investigation Of Vertigo With Prognosis Of Hearing Variables In SSHL

According to a study, researchers examine the association of vertigo with a prognosis of hearing variables in SSHL. Vertigo may be a risk factor for sudden sensorineural hearing loss; future studies are needed to examine whether treatment of vertigo might contribute to the recovery of hearing. For patients with the sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSHL), vertigo may be negatively associated with recovery of hearing. The study was published online in JAMA Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery.

Rotten Food Detection Improved Using Wireless Tagging Device

When it comes to the "smell test," the nose isn't always the best judge of food quality. Now in a study appearing in ACS' journal Nano Letters, scientists report that they have developed a wireless tagging device that can send signals to smartphones warning consumers and food distributors when meat and other perishables have spoiled. They say this new sensor could improve the detection of rotten food so it is tossed before consumers eat it.
