Cardiac tamponade (CT) is a dangerous medical condition caused by the buildup of fluid in the pericardial space (surrounding the heart between the muscle and the outer sac). It increases the pressure on the heart, and reduces its ability to expand and effectively pump blood.
Cor-IS is a portable, non-invasive device for the diagnosis of Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) through brachial artery endothelium functionality evaluation. Until now, ultrasound imaging of the brachial artery is applied in clinical practice, but this has major disadvantages like poor repeatability, extensive fluctuation in the measured values,
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, killing over 800,000 a year (1 in 3 deaths). Heart attacks are an unpredictable emergency situation which is difficult to monitor and predict before permanent damage occurs.
Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) is a growing imaging technique in the medical field. It has advantages of being noninvasive, low-cost, and non-ionizing. In this, near-infrared light is used to assess blood volume and blood oxygenation levels. LiteScan transforms fNIRS capabilities into a wireless,
Infrared surgical lasers, e.g. CTH:YAG @ 2100 nm and TM:YAG @ 2000 nm, are wonderful tools for minimally invasive surgery such as laser vaporization of hyperplastic prostate tissue (BPH), but they are completely incompatible with right angle,
Backed by more than $22 million in grant and Series A funding, Pulmotect is focused on reducing COPD exacerbations with its proprietary drug, PUL-042. COPD, which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema, affects more than 24 million Americans and is the third leading cause of death in the U.S.
