https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9343456
Nature Communications; Wang T, Ugurlu H et. al.

Aug 2nd, 2022 - Microcatheters have enabled diverse minimally invasive endovascular operations and notable health benefits compared with open surgeries. However, with tortuous routes far from the arterial puncture site, the distal vascular regions remain challenging for safe catheter access. Therefore, we propose a wireless stent-shaped magnetic soft robot to be deployed, actively navigated, used for medical f...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8832687
BMC Pulmonary Medicine; Straßburg S, Linker CM et. al.

Feb 13th, 2022 - In this study we tested the hypothesis that in patients with cystic fibrosis (pwCF) respiratory rate (RR) is associated with antibiotic treatment, exacerbation status, forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) and C-reactive protein (CRP). Between June 2018 and May 2019, we consecutively enrolled pwCF who were referred to our hospital. We determined RR and heart rate (HR) by using the minim...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8792035
Nature Communications; Palanker D, Le Mer Y et. al.

Jan 28th, 2022 - Loss of photoreceptors in atrophic age-related macular degeneration (AMD) results in severe visual impairment. Since the low-resolution peripheral vision is retained in such conditions, restoration of central vision should not jeopardize the surrounding healthy retina and allow for simultaneous use of the natural and prosthetic sight. This interim report, prespecified in the study protocol, pre...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8748626
Nature Communications; Escobedo P, Fernández-Ramos MD et. al.

Jan 12th, 2022 - The use of facemasks by the general population is recommended worldwide to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2. Despite the evidence in favour of facemasks to reduce community transmission, there is also agreement on the potential adverse effects of their prolonged usage, mainly caused by CO2 rebreathing. Herein we report the development of a sensing platform for gaseous CO2 real-time determinatio...
