Clinicians and researchers from the University of Michigan have published two proof-of-concept papers on new negative pressure environment devices that protect health care workers while treating patients with COVID-19.
3D printing fuels U-M efforts to rapidly increase ventilator capacity while providing each patient on vent support with individually tailored gas pressures and pressure monitoring.
PICCs should be reserved for long-term use, but a new study shows 1 in 4 are inserted for five days or less with 1 in 10 of these leading to device-related complications.
A federal “right-to-try” law for medical treatments could soon become reality. But systems to expand access to investigational options while protecting patients are already in place, says a U-M expert.
A new digital tool offers an evidence-based guide to vascular access devices that could change bedside decisions — and boost patient safety.
