INTRODUCTION: Disasters create major strain on energy infrastructure in affected communities. Advances in microgrid technology offer the potential to improve "off-grid" mobile disaster medical response capabilities beyond traditional diesel generation. The Carolinas Medical Center's mobile emergency medical unit (MED-1) Green Project (M1G) is a multi-phase project designed to demonstrate the benefits of integrating distributive generation (DG), high-efficiency batteries, and "smart" energy utilization in support of major out-of-hospital medical response operations...

Cost-effective, high-performance diagnostic instruments are vital to providing the society with accessible, affordable, and high-quality healthcare. Here we present an integrated, "microfluidic drifting" based flow cytometry chip as a potential inexpensive, fast, and reliable diagnostic tool. It is capable of analyzing human blood for cell counting and diagnosis of diseases. Our device achieves a throughput of ~3754 events/s. Calibration with Flow-Check calibration beads indicated good congruency with a commercially available benchtop flow cytometer...

Personalized mobile medicine will continue to advance through the development of wearable sensors that can wirelessly provide pertinent health information while remaining unobtrusive, comfortable, low cost, and easy to operate and interpret. It is the intention that the sensor presented hereafter can contribute to such innovation. By applying a combination of emerging microfluidic and electronic technologies, a miniature, flexible, transparent, highly sensitive and wearable pressure sensor with microfluidic elements has been implemented, referred to as a microflotronic device...

Mobile phones are now playing an ever more crucial role in people's daily lives. They are serving not only as a way of talking and delivering messages, but also for exchanging various information. Nevertheless, the functional limit of the phone is still far from being reached. Among the many promising applications, using mobile phones as an actuating element to control data or devices is useful in quite a few emerging medical care and handicapped assistance settings owing to its wireless communication feature...

Maya mobile medical providers in highland Guatemala and the goods and services that they offer from "soapboxes" on street corners, local markets, and on buses exemplify an important yet underinvestigated domain of localized health care, one that I refer to as the "other" public health. This medical and linguistic examination of traveling medical salespeople calls for a reconsideration (on a global scale) of what has come to be understood as "public health," arguing that "othered," local forms of public health that are often overlooked by anthropologists as "nontraditional" and delegitimized by bio-medicine as nonscientific merit serious consideration and investigation...

BACKGROUND: Clinicians caring for HIV-infected patients >60 years old encounter multiple clinical challenges. The use of a functional geriatrics screening for detection of significant comorbidities is important in this population. METHODS: The geriatrics screening evaluated functional capabilities, depression, cognitive dysfunction, nutrition, mobility, medicines used, and interactions. RESULTS: As of July 2009, 57 patients were screened (average age 62...

Inappropriate use of medicines increases the risk of hospital admissions for the elderly. Not only does this lead to unnecessary suffering for the patients but also incurs a great financial cost to the society. A medicine decision support system in a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA), with a barcode reader, can provide an overview of the patients' complete medicine use, and detect unsuitable drugs and drug combinations. Focusing on the elderly, our aim was to evaluate if a mobile medicine decision support system with a barcode reader is useful and user-friendly for nurses in home care...

This paper addresses a pharmacy delivery design problem with two types of human resources: pharmacy assistants and transporters within a hospital. Each medical unit of the hospital has a mobile medicine closet which is conveyed each week by transporters to the central pharmacy for inventory assessment and refill by assistants. Transportation is carried out by foot, by tractor or by truck depending on the location. The problem consists in creating a transportation and supply planning for each day of the week in order to balance workloads for both transporters and assistants while ensuring the availability of medicine to each medical service...

In this paper, we propose a downlink power-control mechanism to be applied in a multi-code code division multiple access (CDMA) mobile medicine system. The mobile medicine system can provide (i) measured blood pressure and body temperature, (ii) medical signals measured by the electrocardiogram (ECG) device, (iii) mobile patient's history, (iv) G.729 audio signals, (v) Joint Photographic Experts Group 2000 Medical images and Moving Picture Experts Group 4 charge-coupled device sensor video signals. By utilizing a multi-code CDMA spread spectrum communication system with downlink power-control strategy, it is possible for this system to meet the quality of service requirements of a mobile medicine network...
