"Heart failure patients often treat their symptoms with alternative therapies and over-the-counter supplements.

Everyone's talking about ChatGPT and how it's "taking over the world." The Medical Futurist in this article reveals how ChatGPT can be used in medicine to answer basic medical questions, book appointments, and do fundamental and repetitive tasks.
"One of the few things you can count on in life is that insurance companies want their members to remain as healthy as possible. Screening, early treatment, and positive patient outcomes all help to reduce their payouts.

Researchers at Stanford University Report That They Have Developed A Wireless Smart Bandage That Has Shown Promise In Speeding Up Tissue Repair By Monitoring The Wound Healing Process And Treating The Wound Simultaneously
"The smart bandage is composed of wireless circuitry that uses impedance/temperature sensors to monitor the progression of wound healing. If the wound is less healed or an infection is detected, the sensors inform a central processing unit to apply more electrical stimulation across the wound bed to accelerate tissue closure and reduce infection. The researchers were able to track the sensor data in real time on a smart phone, all without the need for wires."
"She's the first patient to be treated with this technology," said Prof Waseem Qasim from UCL and Great Ormond Street."
Biological engineering is becoming more popular in oncology; it involves editing base genes [genetic codes] and changing the genetic instructions.
