CYCLE CLOSING TODAY: NOT OURS.

For many people in the west, a cycle is closing today. Other cultures closed it earlier and some will do in the future. The fact is that we all live within cycles and when they’re coming to an end, a feeling of gratitude and hope arises almost inevitably. On our side, we don’t feel like the cycle is closing yet. We still have surprises coming and when they are revealed we’ll jump into the new dimension of design and progress thinking. We have righted some wrongs already, but ‘amazing’ is yet to come. We’re not kidding, amazing isn’t just a nice word to use, it is the perfect adjective to describe it. We are pushing the industry’s limits once again. For now, we can only say thank you for all your support and wish you an amazing new cycle, if you’re starting a new one tomorrow.  


THERAPEUTIC HYPOTHERMIA: EMBRACING COLD

Heart attack's main risk involves permanent brain damage which is produced by the lack of oxygen to the organ . Many victims wake up looking normal but their brains will never be the same. This interesting story published at The Daily Mail details  the recovery of Mike Burton after the attack. In recent years, cardiologists all over the world have adopted the therapeutic hypothermia treatment which uses "the simplest of technologies: ice" as stated by The Wall Street Journal. The procedure, as described in the article affirms that  "Once a patient's heartbeat is restored, emergency-room doctors, cardiologists and rescue squads are quickly applying ice and other coolants to moderately lower a patient's body temperature by about six degrees. Then the patient is put in a drug-induced coma in intensive care for 24 hours before gradually being warmed back up to normal temperature." And because it's working, many ER facilities have been adopting this treatment, embracing the cold, as we do. We want to share a video from Penn Medicine's Center for Resuscitation Science in which they describe a successful experience with it. We hope you enjoy it.
