Sensor detects swallowing problems in stroke patients

http://www.futurity.org/health-medicine/stick-on-sensor-detects-trouble-swallowing/

 A small, external sensor developed at the University of Pittsburgh records how a person swallows and could result in more efficient and less invasive testing for stroke patients.

Dysphagia can have dire consequences like malnutrition, dehydration, pneumonia, and even death. Current evaluation and monitoring methods are often cumbersome and not as effective as they need to be.

  1. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something which too few people are speaking intelligently
    about. Now i’m very happy I found this during my hunt for something regarding this.

  2. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a excellent job with this.

    In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Chrome. Exceptional Blog!

  3. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d certainly
    donate to this outstanding blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.
    I look forward to fresh updates and will talk about this
    website with my Facebook group. Talk soon!

  4. Howdy, I do think your site could possibly be having browser compatibility problems.
    When I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues.

    I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Aside from that, excellent
    website!

  5. Hi would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re working with?

    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.
    Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a reasonable price?

    Cheers, I appreciate it!

  6. all the time i used to read smaller articles that as
    well clear their motive, and that is also happening with this paragraph
    which I am reading here.

  7. Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal
    but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking
    about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any points or suggestions? Thanks

  8. This design is spectacular! You certainly know how to keep a reader
    entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start
    my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really loved what you had to say,
    and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  9. Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from
    somewhere? A design like yours with a few
    simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out.

    Please let me know where you got your design.
    Cheers
