The limited functionality of wearable patches and the low level of comfort from them is restraining the market from growing. The wearable patches have short battery life, limited connectivity, less interoperability. As it is connected to internet, the risk of data security also arises. Research and development efforts in the area of wearables are therefore necessary for unlocking innovation and bringing the ‘next generation wearables’ to consumers and professional users.

Companies are investing heavily in wearable technologies as they consider it to bring high cost of returns. Crowdfunding websites, such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo, have been instrumental in getting connected wearable projects off the ground. For instance, the Pebble Watch was able to raise more than US$10 million in pre-orders in 2012. Investors are currently very active all over the place. Venture capital funds are trying to provide more investments to start-ups that want to invest in wearables. This gives the market an excellent opportunity to expand and create a strong foothold.

The Application of Connected Wearable Patches in Clinical Use is Increasing and is Dominating the Market

The clinical segment leads the global connected wearable patches market, in terms of use and will continue to dominate the market in the coming years. Wearable patches help in monitoring the health conditions of patients. They gather information at regular intervals and transmit the data to connected devices such as smartphones and laptops. By remotely monitoring the health of patients, these devices eliminate the requirement for doctors to physical visit patients. Researchers have created nanoscale electronic scaffolds that can be seeded with cardiac cells to produce a bionic cardiac patch. Once implanted, the bionic patch could act similarly to a pacemaker delivering electrical shocks to correct arrhythmia. Thus, the need for a doctor to continuously monitor patients is eliminated.

Home Care Expert Explains Ways to Communicate with Dementia Patients Easily

Comfort Keepers Philadelphia, PA..

Philadelphia Caregivers

Michele Berman of Comfort Keepers of Philadelphia, an award-winning home care agency, gives tips on how to communicate with those who suffer from dementia.

Dementia is a multi-natured disease that affects millions all over the world. Dementia also can diminish a person’s communication skills.”

— Michele Berman, Owner

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2018 / — Dementia is a multi-natured disease that affects millions all over the world. Dementia embodies a group of symptoms that affect memory, thinking, and social abilities severely enough to interfere with daily life and functioning.

Problems with Dementia begin with at least two different brain functions, such as memory loss and impaired judgment. This could also include the inability to perform daily activities such as cooking or paying bills. Dementia also can diminish a person’s communication skills gradually.

Difficulty with Communication: Look for Clues

When looking for changes in communication skills, look for ones that are aligned with the symptoms of Dementia. Examples of symptoms of Dementia are:
-Use familiar words often
-Inventing new words to describe everyday things
-Losing train of thought often
-Reverting to a native language
-Having difficulty organizing concepts in a logical way
-Speaking less often

Communication During the Different Stages of Alzheimer’s and Dementia:

What to Expect:
In the mild and early stages of Dementia, an individual is still able to engage in daily dialogue, deep conversations, and social activities. However, the person may unknowingly repeat stories, have difficulty finding the correct word, or feel overwhelmed by excessive verbal stimulation.

The middle stage is usually the longest and can last for several years. As the disease progresses, the person will have greater difficulty communicating and will require a lot of direct care.

The severe stage can last several weeks to several months. As the disease advances, the person may rely on nonverbal communication. This could be through eye contact or body language. Around-the-clock care is usually required at this juncture.

The Best Ways to Communicate:
Dealing with Dementia is a struggle. People that have Dementia usually have more difficulty expressing thoughts and emotions than a person without Dementia.

Here are some ways on how to help you be successful in communicating with Dementia Patients:

Before You Speak:
-Stay composed. Take a moment to calm yourself before engaging in a conversation.
-Remain focused. Consider what you are going to talk about and stick to that topic. Try always to be positive. Show your positivity in your voice and body language.
-Be the primary focus. Make sure you grab the person’s full attention, and that they can see you clearly. Try to maintain consistent eye contact and remain at their eye level.
-Minimize distractions. Turn off the TV or radio to reduce background noise.
-Match your body language to your words. Make sure that your body language/facial expressions match with what you are saying.
-Never stand too close. Instead, respect the person’s personal space, for this could be intimidating. Allow the person to feel as though they are in control of the situation.
-Use physical contact. Show that you care by holding the individual’s hand or putting your arm around him or her.

How to Speak Correctly:
-Make sure you Speak calmly and clearly. Be aware of how fast you are talking and your clarity in words. Be sure to use a gentle and relaxed tone. A lower pitch is better to use since it is seen as more calming.
-Speak at a slower pace (slightly). Allow time in between sentences for the person to process the information and to respond at their own pace.
-Include the person in conversations with others. This will reduce feelings of exclusion and isolation.
-Avoid confusing and vague statements. If you tell the person to “hop in the shower,” he or she may take your instructions literally. Describe the action in a more direct way to make your directions more clear: “Please come here. Your shower is ready.” Instead of using unclear antecedents such as “it” or “that,” name the object or place directly. Rather than “Here it is,” say “Your coat is right here.”
-Repeat questions or information as necessary. If the person does not respond quickly, wait a moment for them to think. Then ask the person one more time.
-Turn your questions into answers. Provide the patient with the solution rather than an open question. For example, say “Your lunch is right here,” instead of asking, “Are you ready for your lunch?”
-Turn negative things into positive things. Instead of saying, “Don’t go there,” say, “Let’s go here.”
-Try to laugh with them about mistakes and confusions. Humor and fun can bring you closer together with the person and relieve any tensions.

What to Say to the Patient:
-Clearly Identify Yourself. Advance the conversation from a frontal view and maintain good eye contact.
-Call the person by name. It helps keep the person in reality and grabs their attention.
-Use short, simple words and sentences. Lengthy stories or requests can be overwhelming.
-Offer a guess. If the person can’t find the correct word to use or uses the wrong word, try helping them guess the right one.
-Avoid asking too many direct questions. People with dementia often become frustrated if they can’t find the answer. If you have to, ask questions, ask only one question at a time and put them in a way that allows for only a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer.
-Try not to ask the person to make difficult decisions. Try always to give the person a choice. Too many options can be frustrating.
-Avoid criticizing or correcting. Don’t discourage the person’s effort by telling them that they are incorrect. Instead, try to understand what they are trying to say, and encourage him or her to always correspond their thoughts.
-Avoid arguing. If the person says something you don’t necessarily agree with, try to let it go. Fighting makes things worse. It will also heighten the level of agitation for the person dealing with dementia.

How to Listen:
-Always try to Listen attentively to what the person is trying to communicate.
-Try to be caring and supportive. The person may need more time to process thoughts in conversation. Let the person know you are listening to them.
-Pay attention to hints. If the individual has difficulty finding the right word to use or finishing a sentence, maybe ask them to try to finish it in a different way.
-Remain sympathetic while listening. If the individual is feeling unhappy, let them express their feelings without dismissing them right away. This will show that how much you care.
-After listening, get confirmation. When you have not fully understood what they are saying, tell the person what you have comprehended and make sure you are correct. You may have to repeat yourself to clarify.
-Always use the best judgment. Some people will not remember personal things, such as medical history, family, or friends. You will need to and act appropriately in these situations. For example, they may say that they have just showered when you know they haven’t yet.

Always Keep Corresponding, and Be Respectful:
Remember to always treat a Dementia patient with respect and dignity. Don’t talk about them as if they are not there, or speak to them as you would to a young child. Remaining patient is crucial.

Always offer them ongoing comfort and reassurance, too. If he or she is having trouble communicating, let the person know that it is alright. Try to give support to the person to continue to explain his or her thoughts, no matter what.

Malpractice Lawyer Outlines What to do if Your Breast Cancer is Misdiagnosed

Alvin F. de Levie & Associates - Personal Injury Attorneys

Alvin F. de Levie & Associates

The misdiagnosis of a serious illness can bring great consequences. Attorney Alvin de Levie outlines what to do if you experience a breast cancer misdiagnosis.

Unfortunately, despite growing awareness, many medical providers fail to properly diagnose breast cancer. More than 90,000 women have received breast cancer misdiagnoses.”

— Alvin de Levie, Esq.

PHILADELPHIA, PA, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2018 / — Breast cancer is a serious problem in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in 2014 (the most recent numbers available), almost 237,000 women were diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States and over 41,000 of those women died from breast cancer. We have all seen the pink ribbons from organizations like the Susan G. Komen Foundation on bumper-stickers and t-shirts to raise awareness of breast cancer. Efforts that spread awareness of breast cancer are important, as the American Cancer Society notes those who begin receiving breast cancer treatment early have the highest survival rates.

Unfortunately, despite growing awareness in both the medical community and among the public, many medical providers fail to properly diagnose breast cancer. In this instance, it's important to hire a medical malpractice lawyer. According to a study of breast cancer survivors performed by the Susan G. Komen Foundation, more than 90,000 women received incorrect breast cancer diagnoses. Sometimes, a doctor may misread the patient’s symptoms and diagnose the patient with another medical problem, resulting in a misdiagnosis of breast cancer. Other times, the doctor may miss the symptoms entirely and incorrectly give the patient a clean bill of health, resulting in a failure to diagnose breast cancer. Because early intervention is so important to increase a breast cancer victim’s chances of survival, the failure to make a prompt and proper diagnosis wastes valuable time during which cancer can spread.

What Are The Symptoms Of Breast Cancer?

Symptoms of breast cancer vary from person to person. According to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, symptoms of breast cancer include:

-Skin changes, such as redness, swelling or noticeable differences in one or both breasts;
-An unexplained increase in size or shape of the breast;
-Nipple discharges (not including breast milk);
-Pain in or on any part of the breast;
-Lumps or nodes that can be felt on or inside of the breast;
-Changes in the appearance of one or both nipples (such as inverted nipples or swollen nipples).

The Cancer Treatment Centers of America also notes several symptoms of more invasive stages of breast cancer, including:

-Change in breast color;
-Peeling or flaking of the skin around the nipple;
-A breast lump or thickening of the breast; and
-Irritated or itchy breasts.

According to the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, women should get yearly mammograms starting at age 40 to detect early signs of breast cancer. Regardless of whether you have reached the age where annual screening is recommended, the American Cancer Society recommends that all women of any age be vigilant and report any changes in how their breasts look or feel to their health care provider immediately.

What Kinds Of Failures Lead To A Misdiagnosis Of Breast Cancer?

There are many kinds of negligence that leads either the misdiagnosis of breast cancer or the complete failure to diagnose breast cancer, including:

Breakdowns in Communication Between Doctor and Patient: Women with a family history of breast cancer are often are a higher risk than those without such a history. Medical providers sometimes fail to obtain a proper and thorough medical history that includes whether any relatives have been diagnosed with breast cancer. This can make a medical provider less diligent in examining the client for symptoms of breast cancer. Medical providers may also fail to follow up with their clients when they do report potential symptoms of breast cancer to ensure additional symptoms have not developed.

Breakdowns in Communication Between Medical Providers: The diagnosis and management of breast cancer often involves a chain of many different medical providers. Your doctor, radiologists, specialists and outside testing facilities all need to work as a team to ensure the proper screening and tests are performed and that the results of those tests get to the right medical providers in time. A breakdown in communication between these providers can result in several errors that can lead to misdiagnosis, such as failing to order the right test or a failure to promptly report adverse findings.

Incorrect Readings and interpretations of Diagnostic Tests: Many times, a misdiagnosis may be due to the simple fact the radiologist or doctor misreads diagnostic tests. The medical provider may miss a lump or node that appears on a mammogram or ultrasound and incorrectly tell the patient there is nothing to worry about. Other times, the medical provider reviewing the test results may interpret the results incorrectly, leading the provider to incorrectly decide that what is in fact breast cancer is merely inflammation or another kind of medical problem.

In either case, these failures prevent breast cancer from being discovered early and rob patients of their ability to increase their chance of survival by recognizing and treating their breast cancer early.

What Should I Do If My Doctor Has Misdiagnosed Breast Cancer?

First, you should seek treatment immediately. The key to surviving breast cancer is often early intervention. Seeking the proper treatment immediately after you suspect or are diagnosed with breast cancer greatly increases survival rates.

Second, contact an experienced attorney. DO NOT DELAY! Misdiagnosed breast cancer is generally due to medical malpractice or medical negligence. There is a Statute of Limitations in Pennsylvania that generally requires any medical malpractice lawsuit to be started within two (2) years of the medical malpractice or medical negligence which has caused your injuries. If you do not bring a lawsuit within the applicable two-year period, any claim that you may have will be forever barred. There are certain situations where the Statute of Limitations will be extended, but determining whether your case meet the requirements for an extension is extremely complicated. You will need an experienced attorney to review your case to see if it qualifies.

Like all medical malpractice cases, cases of misdiagnosed breast cancer are often much more complicated than other kinds of personal injury cases. Your attorney will often have to gather thousands of pages of medical records and have them reviewed by experts to determine whether the provider that misdiagnosed your cancer is guilty of medical malpractice or medical negligence. You need an experienced attorney with access to the right experts who can review the facts of your case to determine what kinds of claims you may make. Second, medical malpractice cases are often high-stakes cases that are heavily litigated and notoriously expensive. You need an attorney with the resources and perseverance to take your case all the way to trial if necessary.

At the Law Office of Alvin F. de Levie, Esq., our team has years of experience handling complex cases for those who have suffered from medical malpractice and medical negligence. If you or a loved one have suffered injury due to misdiagnosed breast cancer, please call our firm– 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – at 844-777-2529 (Toll-Free) for a consultation.

33% of every million elderly admitted to hospitals suffer from nutrition-related diseases. Everything boils down to inadequate food intake therefore and can be corrected by taking a few necessary steps pertaining to senior care.

You may be flabbergasted to find out that your elderly father suffers from malnutrition. You are in a shock as you do everything possible to ensure home care nutrition by bringing him to the dining table during meal times and make sure that he takes his medication diligently.

Simply feeding him won’t be enough. You must keep an eye on both the quantity as well as the quality of regimen. The professionals who offer home care solutions for the elderly will be able to educate you about the how’s and why’s of malnutrition that is likely to leave your father frail and weakened. Doctors advise opting for a professional in-home care provider who has both the knowledge as well as the expertise for tackling such a situation.

The in-home caregiver may not have an inkling of the real cause of the problem though. She will, however, keep trying to force feed him at times and end up upsetting him. This is likely to affect him mentally as well. You definitely need to coax him to open up about his problems or allow the caregiver to communicate with him closely.

It might not be as simple as stuffing him with a huge quantity of food either. Geriatric pros believe it to be a combination of physical, psychological as well as social issues that result in severe malnutrition.

Here are some of the common issues that cause a senior citizen to consume less of food thereby lacking the required amount of nutrition.

Going through the details below will help you identify and try and solve it at the earliest in order to ascertain the health of your old and weakened parent.

Health Issues – Elderly individuals lose the will to eat due to dementia at times. Loss of teeth and gum problem may also make them unable to chew properly causing them to refuse food often. Recovering from chronic illness or a feeling of loneliness may also keep them off food thus affecting the nutrition. It would help to question your father and get to the root of the issue. Solving it becomes easy once you know how to minimize the issue.

Dietary Restrictions – If your father suffers from diabetes or has high blood pressure than he is certainly not alone. These happen to be common age-related conditions that need them follow a diet sans salt, sugar and many other nutritive substances that help in nourishing the body. It might be best to get a dietitian prescribe supplements to replenish the diet, therefore.

Social Life – An old person loses touch with his friends because most of them live too far away. Unfortunately, your father is also likely to find many of his old friends dead and gone. He becomes despondent and pines for the lost years when he had enjoyed living life to the fullest. Lack of friends and companions forces him to eat alone, and he often leaves the food uneaten as he has lost his appetite.

Depression is more likely to affect his mood when he lives on his own with no one to talk to. The grief and lack of companionship along with ill health will often make him forgo his food completely. Be sure to ask the live-in caregiver to keep him engaged and happy. Enjoying his favorite activities with a person who takes good care of him is sure to make him happy. He is bound to find life interesting once again.

Malnutrition in seniors is something to worry about.

The foods you eat are important to your health–and never more so than in your senior years. A healthy, balanced diet is crucial to mental and physical wellbeing.

Additionally, many older adults' doctors have recommended a specific diet for their health needs. But following a proper home health care eating plan or a special diet can be difficult for many seniors to keep up on their own.

Facts about Senior Malnutrition
Malnutrition means not getting the vitamins, nutrients, and calories our bodies need from food. Not eating enough of the right kinds of foods can cause many health problems, especially for the elderly.

Unfortunately, according to recent statistics, many seniors are not getting the nutrition they need. A recent article in Forbes stated that one in three patients admitted to a hospital were malnourished. Many of these patients were seniors. The article also found that the cost of malnutrition for older adults is $51.3 billion each year.

Risk Factors for Senior Malnutrition
A review of the risk factors seniors face for malnutrition was published in the journal Advances in Nutrition. The research found that risk factors include:

Cognitive decline due to dementia and Alzheimer's disease
Difficulty walking up and down stairs
Taking more than 10 prescription drugs
Functional decline
Loss of hand grip strength
Parkinson's disease
Just like your parents worried about your nutrition when you were a child, friends and relatives of older adults often worry about their loved ones' nutritional intake. This is especially important if your loved one has any of these risk factors for senior malnutrition.

Special Dietary Concerns for Seniors
According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, senior nutrition has some specific concerns. Here's what you need to know:

1. Seniors need more vitamin D and calcium. These two nutrients work together for bone health. According to the National Institutes of Health, adults age 71 and older need 800 International Units (IU) of vitamin D, which is 200 IU more than adults ages 19-70.

Women ages 50 and up and men ages 71 and older need 1,200 mg of calcium per day. Not getting enough calcium and vitamin D can lead to bone loss and osteoporosis. Calcium and vitamin D can come from some foods or from supplements.

2. Vitamin B12 helps to keep cells healthy and prevent anemia. An article published by Harvard Medical School found that people over 50 are at risk of developing a vitamin B12 deficiency.

As we age, it becomes harder for us to absorb vitamin B12 in foods. The recommended daily allowance for adults is 4.2 micrograms. Some examples of B12-containing foods include clams, beef liver, chicken, dairy products, and B12-fortified foods, such as cereals. Vitamin B12 supplements are also available.

3. Seniors need to pay attention to their fiber intake. Fiber is the parts of foods that your body can't digest. So why do you need fiber?

It helps you feel full and helps with digestion. Eating enough fiber can help older adults with constipation. The Institute of Medicine recommends men age 51 and over consume 30 grams of fiber per day.

Women over age 51 should aim for 21 grams. Good sources of fiber include whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and nuts.

4. Everyone needs protein to help their cells function properly. The daily minimum amount of protein per day for adults is currently .8 grams per kilogram of the person's body weight each day.

A 2017 review published in Frontiers in Nutrition found that older adults may need even more protein. Good sources of protein include dairy products, eggs, meat, nuts, beans, quinoa, and soy products.

New Alliance Seeks to Promote Health and Prevent Illness by Addressing Social Determinants of Health

Non-medical determinants of health are thought to account for up to 60 percent of health outcomes

The Alliance will lead to healthier communities and will also have a positive impact in slowing the rise of healthcare costs.”

— Mikelle Moore, Intermountain Senior Vice President, Community Health

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, June 29, 2018 / — A new collaborative called the Utah Alliance for the Determinants of Health (the Alliance) has been formed to promote health, improve health care access, and decrease health care costs. The Alliance—a collaboration in Ogden, Utah, and St. George, Utah, led by Intermountain Healthcare involving city, county, and state government agencies and other community based organizations—seeks to improve health by focusing on non-medical factors that affect health, such as housing instability, utility needs, food insecurity, interpersonal violence, and transportation. The collaborative will begin with two demonstration programs in Ogden and St. George.

Americans have shorter lifespans and fare worse on many health indicators despite our expending double the per-capita average of our industrialized peers in other countries. To effectively care for Americans with complex medical conditions, it is often best to simultaneously address medical treatment along with what are commonly called the social determinants of health. These non-medical determinants of health are thought to account for up to 60 percent of health outcomes.

Addressing these non-medical health drivers requires innovative, comprehensive, and collaborative solutions from the public and private sectors. The goal of the Utah Alliance for the Determinants of Health is to achieve healthier communities, lower healthcare costs, and be a model for positive changes that other areas of the U.S. can replicate. The work will begin in Ogden and St. George with SelectHealth Medicaid members with an intent to eventually initiate similar work throughout Utah with other patients.

Intermountain will provide funding to support the Alliance’s initial demonstration programs in Ogden and St. George for three years subject to applicable regulations. These communities were selected based on the needs of the communities, opportunities to partner with other organizations and agencies, as well as on other factors such as available social services. The initial demonstration will work with SelectHealth Medicaid members in four ZIP codes: 84401 and 84403 in Ogden and 84770 and 84790 in St. George. Alliance program services will be available to qualifying persons without regard to their choice of healthcare providers. Upon the completion of the demonstration, the program will be evaluated for expansion to other populations and geographic areas.

The Alliance is designed within the Accountable Health Communities model designed by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. This approach will include screening SelectHealth members for social needs and assisting with coordination of those needs. It will also include working with community partners to ensure that services are aligned with the needs of community members.

Intermountain will be investing $12 million over three years—$2 million annually in both Ogden and St. George—which will sustain the three-year demonstration project. Intermountain’s initial funding for this demonstration will be used to bolster the impact of numerous pre-existing programs currently led by community partners. The addition of funds will enable Intermountain and community partners to gain efficiencies in coordinating care and other services that will reduce total spending. In addition, Zions Bank has made a generous donation of $100,000 to support the work of the Alliance.

“We are very excited to work with our local and statewide partners in this innovative Alliance,” said . “By working together in new ways to promote health, we expect to make a real difference in the lives of the people in these programs. The Alliance will lead to healthier communities and will also have a positive impact in slowing the rise of healthcare costs.”

“Addressing social determinants of health increasingly plays a vital role as the country transitions to value and holistic-based health care. Leavitt Partners is pleased to leverage our expertise regarding social determinants of health, health care transformation, and alliances to provide instrumental advisory and strategic support to Intermountain and the Alliance on this initiative,” said Andrew Croshaw, CEO of Leavitt Partners.

Intermountain Healthcare is a Utah-based not-for-profit system of 22 hospitals, 170 clinics, a Medical Group with about 2,300 employed physicians and advanced practice clinicians, a health plans group called SelectHealth, and other medical services. Intermountain is widely recognized as a leader in transforming healthcare through high quality and sustainable costs. For more information about Intermountain, visit

Highlighting Nano Vivere Research on Innovative Ways to Combat Breast Cancer

Nano Vivere

A sea change in the way cancer is analyzed and treated has yielded more than one promising treatment for those diagnosed with the breast cancer.

GUANGZHOU, GUANGDONG, CHINA, June 29, 2018 / — Nano Vivere (ISIN: CN0024013913), a late stage clinical company, pioneering nanomedicine whose technology is based on proprietary technologies and patents, today announced that Nano Vivere scientists are featured in an article about new targeted therapies to fight breast cancer.
The co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Don T. Leung said: “Our research team is testing a family of drugs for positive metastatic breast cancer. The drug is nanoscale Trojan Horse that sneaks into the cancer cell carrying a variety of weapons that stage a multipronged attack on the cancer.”
“The drug plays a dual role. It blocks existing receptors on the surface of the cancer cell, and at the same time plays the role of the vehicle that brings other inhibitors into the cancer cell,” said Dr. Don T. Leung, professor of cardiology and chief of sciences and director of the Nanomedicine Research Center.
“It enters the cytoplasm to the cancer cell. In addition, we put in specific molecular inhibitors of any future receptors, so we burn the candle from both ends. Not only do we block from the outside, we prevent from the inside. There’s one more exciting possibility, which involves including one more weapon inside the Trojan horse: a substance that stimulates the patient’s own immune response to help fight the cancer cells.”
“We genetically prepared a new ‘fusion gene’ that consists of an immune-stimulating protein,” he said. The nano-weapons are in the advanced preclinical stage, which means they are at least a year away from being presented for approval. “With the technology of nanomedicine, we can treat not only primary breast cancer, but we can better treat metastasis,” he continued.
Nanotechnology may be able to cross the blood brain barrier and deliver drugs to stage a multipronged attack on breast cancer, giving more hope to survivors, and taking one more step toward making some late-stage breast cancer a chronic but manageable condition.
If researchers can figure out what molecular switches are turned on, they can turn off the switch.
