FREE EKG TRAINING APP FROM SYNDAVER
SynDaver™ Labs has released a free medical training electrocardiogram (EKG)simulator app for android devices on Google Play. The SynDaver EKG Simulator is a digital platform that can function with any medical training manikin, according to SynDaver. Currently available variables include heartbeats per minute, systolic pressure, diastolic pressure, respiration rate, SpO2, and temperature. Values are displayed both numerically and by color coordinated dynamic waveform with mutable audio indicators for heart rate.
The EKG Simulator app allows for 2 android devices to be paired using Bluetooth, which, says the manufacturer, is ideal for a classroom setting because it allows the instructor to update the display remotely to modify the training scenario.

XOFT CERVICAL APPLICATOR FOR EBX
iCAD, Inc. has added a cervical applicator to the Xoft® Axxent® Electronic Brachytherapy (eBX) System® for intracavitary treatment of multiple gynecologic cancers in a minimally shielded setting. The cervical applicator is used to deliver a precise dose of radiation to larger target areas of the cervix while minimizing exposure to healthy tissue, according to iCAD.
Using proprietary miniaturized x-ray as the radiation source, the Xoft eBX System delivers isotope-free radiation treatment in a targeted prescribed dose directly to the site where cancer recurrence is most likely, designed to minimize exposure to healthy tissue such as the bladder and rectum. The system requires minimal shielding and therefore does not require room redesign or construction investment and also allows medical personnel to remain in the room with the patient during treatment, says iCAD.
