Middle Ear MEMS Microphone Could Restore Hearing

Friday, January 24th, 2014

Researchers at the University of Utah have developed a MEMS microphone that can be implanted in the middle ear to restore hearing and requires no clunky external electronics. The device improves upon conventional cochlear implants, which have restored basic hearing to some 220,000 deaf people but require a microphone and related electronics to be worn outside the head, creating reliability issues and social stigma.

BlueStar, the First Prescription-Only App

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

The app, called BlueStar, helps people with Type 2 diabetes (the most common kind) by suggesting, in real time, when to test their blood sugar and how to control it by varying medication, food, and exercise. That it requires a physician’s prescription is actually an advantage, because it means insurance companies will reimburse BlueStar’s fee.

Automating Anesthesia For Medically Induced Comas

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

In some scenarios it can be safer for health professionals to put certain patients, those with persistent seizures or brain trauma for example, into medically induced comas during treatment or recovery. But this requires full time supervision from hospital staff because the process involves watching a patient’s EEG and manually adjusting the anesthesia drugs to keep brain activity stable. But a new system tested in animals and published in PLOS Computational Biology yesterday automates the monitoring and dosage modification.

The IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society Mentor Program provides mentees access to experienced mentors who can contribute to their professional and personal development.

For example, students can talk to graduate students or members already in the field.  Have a question about one of the areas of Biomedical Engineering,
find a mentor who can explain and help you.

The program provides a platform for mentees to realize their potential by enabling personal and professional relationships with mentors, who act as role models and provide guidance to them. It offers opportunities to develop business contacts, access industry information, and gain valuable insights from experienced and successful professionals.
