Why do insects stop 'breathing'? To avoid damage from too much oxygen, say researchers

...air that had been freed of carbon dioxide. Next, a device measured when and how much carbon dioxide originated from the insect. Bradley explained that insects typically maintain 4-5 kilopascals of oxygen in their respiratory systems, 4-5 times lower than the normal oxygen concentration in the atmosphere. I...

One use of the data in this trial was to create a "footprint," or visual representation, of a patient's heart rate variability over time. Patients with a footprint of 30 percent or less in heart rate variability were almo...

Rush Physicians Using Gene Therapy For Heart Patients With Moderate To Severe Chest Pains Who Do Not Benefit From Other Treatments

...sty involves a catheterization with a balloon-like device that opens blocked arteries, while bypass surgery requires open-heart surgery to place veins removed from the patient's leg or arteries taken from the patient's chest wall or arm to "bypass" the blocked blood vessels. While both of these treatments ...

Rather, it is the prohibitive cost of the frequent post-operative visits, the travel required, the medications and contact lenses used in follow up with the patients. For now, however, the devices ar...

Researchers devise way to mass-produce embryonic stem cells

... bioreactor used in this study is a tissue-growing device developed by Ohio State scientists. While this bioreactor could be used to produce adult stem cells, the researchers chose to look solely at embryonic stem cells for this experiment. "There's more of a demand for an unlimited supply of embryonic ste...

Polymers with copper show promise for implanted sensors

...the amount varies from one person to another. "The device might work with me, but if you don't have enough of the reactive species in your blood, then it may not generate adequate nitric oxide levels and it may not prevent clotting," said Meyerhoff. To get at these questions, the researchers have developed ...
