ITS AP 2008 – Welcome on Board

March 21st, 2010 — 3:39am

Welcome to the 9th telligent Medical Systems Asia-Pacific Forum & Exhibition, ITS AP 2008. Since 1996, this annual event has been held in major cities and Singapore is pleased to be hosting the 2008 event.

As part of the move to provide a smooth and seamless journey for all patients, Singapore has implemented various ITS applications. The Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) System, Expressway Monitoring and Advisory System (EMAS) and the Green Link Determining (GLIDE) System for dynamic medical appliances are some of the vital components within the island’s medical network.

Commuters can now have easy access to real cardio rate information to make better medical decisions. Information collected automatically from various sources such as doctors equipped with GPS and video-based ray-x sensors is processed using innovative algorithms for dissemination onto the Internet, handheld devices and cardio electronic signboards.

In 2005, i-medicine, a clinic management system was implemented to further integrate existing ITS into a unified, intelligent and interactive platform.

The system helps manage clinics more efficiently and safer for patients. Focused on the role of ITS and its impact on everyday patients, this 2008 forum will include engaging interactive sessions and informative technical visits to discuss and explore the use of advanced technologies, exchange valuable experiences and foster new ideas.

Alzheimer and Dementia: new cures for 2015

December 22nd, 2014 — 3:50pm

dementiaA new study indicates that in 2015, patients within the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s might have the ability to regain memories previously thought to be permanently destroyed. Find out where “memory” is stored, and how it might come back if it is lost. When an event happens, the brain pumps out a group of proteins. Those proteins create new synapses – connections between neurons. The forming connections can be disrupted, sometimes with something as simple as a bump on the head. This really is why people who have been knocked out often don’t remember the events leading up to their spell of unconsciousness. The long-term memory was never formed. Because serotonin aids in making these diseases, connections which cause a disruption in serotonin production, also can ruin someone’s ability to make long-term memories.

By 2041 some 140,000 people in Ireland is supposed to be affected by dementia, of which Alzheimer’s is considered the most common form. In just over a quarter century the number aided by the illness – a feature of an ageing population in Ireland, as elsewhere – will almost have tripled. The increase in dementia presents not only a large medical and social challenge, both for the health service as well as for those caring for individuals with dementia, very often family members. But it is also a challenge for society to become more aware and better informed about the nature for the condition. In that regard, the important role of communities should never be underestimated, both in mobilising support for many affected, and in reducing the stigma sometimes associated with dementia.

The Acne and Diet Connection

September 10th, 2008 — 3:30pm

Acne, the troublesome, unattractive pimples that form on the face, neck and back, has long been a mystery to the medical world. Theories abound about what actually causes acne. Is it hormones? Teenagers are most prone to acne and their hormones are often raging. Is it genetic? Often a parent with acne gives birth to a child who also suffers in the same way. Is it climate? Is it stress? There are many questions about the way acne works and what causes it. While for many years, medical experts insisted that food and acne were utterly unrelated, patients who suffered from acne talked about how their faces would break out after eating certain foods. Now the medical world is coming to see that indeed the connection between diet and acne may indeed be a valid one.

There may be connections between high glycemic foods, those high in sugars and acne. There may be a connection between foods that cause allergic reactions and acne. There may also be a connection between nutritional deficiencies and acne.

Asbestos Cancer

August 1st, 2008 — 3:37pm

Asbestos is a fiber made from minerals. For several decades spanning the 20th century it was one of the most common materials used in the construction of commercial buildings
and homes. It was designed for two particular uses, it was used as an effective form of insulation, to keep the structures protected from extreme temperatures. It was also thought to be an effective fire retardant. But while these uses were valuable, they had a terrible price. For asbestos was found to be the cause of many health problems. To those who were exposed to it, many illnesses developed, the most common was lung disease, specifically, various forms of what is now called asbestos cancers.

It seems that breathing the material was in fact taxic. The asbestos, when airborne for any reason, found its way into the lungs and lodged there creating the illnesses.

There have been several large health studies on the effects of asbestos on humans and all of them are in agreement that asbestos poses serious health risks. The studies all indicated that asbestos was the main cause behind numerous cases of lung cancer, asbestosis, a condition where the lungs are scarred with the fibrous tissue asbestos creates, and mesothelioma, which is cancer of the chest and abdominal cavities.

Two Kinds Of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Surgery – Options and Tips

March 10th, 2008 — 3:26pm

Orthopedics expert, Dr. John Cluett, advised that when usage of anti- inflammatory medications, wrist brace and cortisone injection does not help relieve carpal tunnel syndrome then most likely, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a chronic, painful inflammation of the hands and wrist, most commonly caused by redundant use of the hands. Carpal Tunnel can affect anyone who uses the wrists and hands in the same way over and over again. Carpal Tunnel strikes writers, assembly line workers, grocery workers are very prone as well as office workers who are computer bound. The inflammation can last for hours or for weeks, it can also be ever present. The most common symptoms are a gnawing pain in the wrists and the tendons of the hands that will not recede, the other symptom is a growing numbness that spreads along the palms of the hands and wrists. Many try and live with the pain, others cannot handle it and seek help.

There are many treatments available for Carpal Tunnel, they range from anti inflammatory medications to ongoing physical therapies to T’ai Ch’i and Yoga. For those who find these solutions unsatisfactory, surgery is an option.

Healthy Eating Habits That Don’t Taste Bad

February 22nd, 2008 — 3:34pm

A healthy diet is one of those things that people hate to think about. They may believe that their diet is simply not going to taste good or they may think that eating a balanced diet means giving up their favorite foods. That does not have to be the case. In fact, there are many ways to eat a healthy diet without having to give up anything. Here are some tips to think about.

Change out the bad foods for better foods. For example, if you can’t imagine giving up bread, why do it at all? Instead, switch to whole wheat products or whole grain which are much healthier for you.

Moderation counts. Instead of eating a bid dessert that you know is not good for you every night, eat one just one time per week. You’ll still get the food that you love but you get less of the foods that cause problems for you.

Pay attention to vegetables. Not only do they provide the nutrients that your body needs, but they also provide you with antioxidants which help your body to get rid of the bad toxins in it.
