Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most common birth defect and it is estimated that nearly one out of every 100 babies is born with CHD. It has been reported that around 78,000 infants die because of congenital heart disease in India every year.1 Critical congenital heart disease (CCHD), defined as CHD causing death or requiring invasive intervention in the neonatal period, occurs in one to two newborns per 1,000 live births.2

“We evaluated several monitors before selecting Masimo’s superior SET® technology for all 16 Cloudnine Hospitals,” said Dr. Kishore Kumar, Chairman and Senior Neonatologist, Cloudnine Hospitals. “Masimo SET® will enhance our existing protocols to provide superior screening and ensure that every baby born here now has the opportunity to live a healthy life. Our hope is that universal CCHD screening become mandatory for every child born in India.”

“Early detection is key in this fragile patient population,” said Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo. “It’s exciting to see the adoption of CCHD screening in India. Cloudnine’s hospitals have the best in class morbidity and mortality outcomes in the country – 0% maternal mortality and a 99.83% survival rate for babies. When we developed SET®, we didn’t realize how many wonderful new applications our Measure-Through Motion and Low Perfusion™ technology would make possible – so it’s especially gratifying that we can help clinicians around the world save the lives of so many babies.”

In a study of newborns, researchers have found CCHD was detected 63% of the time by standard screening and 83% of the time when screening with Masimo SET® was added.3 Over 100 million patients are monitored with Masimo SET® pulse oximeters around the world and in more than 100 comparative studies Masimo SET® outperformed other technologies.4,5 Researchers have found that Masimo SET® in combination with changes in clinical practice led to an increase of 31% in the detection of newborns with CCHD when used as a part of the CCHD screening protocol.3

Cloudnine hospitals are also the first in the country to make a formal patient safety commitment to the World Patient Safety Movement Foundation. This non-profit organization is dedicated to eradicating preventable patient deaths in hospitals around the world. With this step, Cloudnine joins an elite group of over 1200 hospitals worldwide that have made public commitments to implementing Actionable Patient Safety Solutions in their respective organizations.

CorFlow Presents Fundamental New Insights into the Coronary Microcirculation at ACC22.2.2018 09:10Pressemelding

CorFlow Therapeutics AG (www.corflow-therapeutics.ch) today announced that the company will present fundamental new insights into the coronary microcirculation during the annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology (ACC) in Orlando, FL, March 10-12, 2018. CorFlow has since its foundation in June 2016 worked to document that the Controlled Flow Infusion (CoFITM) technology is able to measure the coronary microvascular status and provide therapy to the compromised coronary microcirculation at the same time. Microvascular obstruction (MVO) affects more than half of the acute heart attack patients and is an independent predictor for complications including heart failure which constitutes a high cost burden for the world-wide health care system. To address this large unmet medical need in interventional cardiology, CorFlow has developed an in-vivo model which reproducibly creates MVO in an occlusion-reperfusion model with very low complication rates. Using this in-vivo model, the C

DocsCorp White Paper Encourages Businesses to Review their 2018 Data Protection Strategy – Protection through Technology22.2.2018 09:02Pressemelding

Tough new data protection laws are coming – are you prepared? Reviewing your data protection strategy in 2018, a new white paper published today by DocsCorp, challenges readers to assess their readiness to comply with rigorous upcoming data protection standards affecting businesses in Europe, the Americas and Australia. DocsCorp contends that organizations around the world will be affected by new data laws. The UK’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into force in May 2018. Australia’s new, sweeping National Data Breach (NDB) notification laws already require all businesses to report data breaches. In the United States, many individual states have passed their own data protection laws, and the US federal government has proposed the nationwide Data Security and Breach Notification Act, currently under congressional review. A main focus of GDPR is “Privacy by Design and Default,” which recommends preventative action before breaches occur rather than coping with damages and pe

GSMA Warns That Policymakers Must Act Now to Avoid Mobile Network “Gridlock” in Major Cities22.2.2018 09:00Pressemelding

The GSMA today published a new report that examines the ability of mobile networks to meet the exploding demand for mobile data in the world’s largest and densest cities. The GSMA/Boston Consulting Group report, “Delivering the Digital Revolution: Will Mobile Infrastructure Keep Up with Rising Demand?”, finds that networks in so-called “megacities” such as New York, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Tokyo will face a significant gap between mobile data traffic demand and available network capacity, with as much as 48 per cent of traffic demand going unserved in ultra-dense urban areas by 2025. The report highlights that regulatory reform will be critical in closing the projected supply-demand gap and unlocking the economic potential of next-generation mobile broadband. “The current global regulatory landscape has been successful in creating a competitive market that has made mobile connectivity accessible to more than five billion people around the world,” said John Giusti, Chief Regulatory Offic
