Shock Devices – Ban Shock Mon, 29 Nov 2021 13:13:03 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Shock Devices – Ban Shock 32 32 Spectral Medical announces US FDA approval of Tigris Mon, 29 Nov 2021 13:00:00 +0000

Amendment aligns Tiger eligibility with current clinical practice in septic shock

Potential to improve Tigris enrollment rates by 25-50% and reduce time to trial completion

Five additional clinical sites are now participating with a total of 15 fully integrated sites

TORONTO, November 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Spectral Medical Inc. (“Spectral” or the “Company”) (TSX: EDT), an advanced theranostic company that provides treatment options for sepsis and septic shock, as well as the commercialization of a proprietary new platform targeting the renal replacement therapy market through its subsidiary in wholly owned Dialco Medical Inc. (Dialco), today announced that the United States Federal Food and Drug Agency (“FDA”) has approved an amendment to the protocol of its Tigris trial allowing the use of a sequential evaluation of organ failure (“SOFA”) as a criterion for inclusion in the study. In addition, the Company announced the start of recruiting for five additional clinical sites, including Louisiana State University, Cleveland Clinic, University of Arkansas, University of Michigan and Colorado Springs, bringing the total number of participating sites to fifteen.

Dr John Kellum, Medical Director of Spectral, commented: “We are very pleased with the FDA approval of our amendment to the Tigris protocol to allow the use of SOFA, which is an alternative scoring system used to quantify the severity of illness. Adding SOFA as an alternative to capture cardiovascular dysfunction when already treated with vasopressor drugs removes a critical barrier to enrollment using MODS and aligns the study protocol with current sepsis guidelines and models of practice in most hospitals. We are very excited to implement SOFA in the study, as we believe it should have a very positive impact on enrollments. We estimate that registrations will increase by 25-50% using SOFA.

“The ability to include patients based on SOFA scores removes a major barrier to enrolling in Tigris,” said Dr Ali Al-Khafaji, professor of critical care medicine at the University’s medical school. of Pittsburgh. “Although our site has enrolled patients on MODS basis, the ability to now enroll patients on SOFA basis should have a significant impact on our enrollment rates. I would expect this enrollment impact to be universal across other Tiger sites and significantly reduce the time it takes to complete the trial.

Despite a challenging clinical environment due to COVID-19, Spectral was able to add new test sites to the Tigris trial. At present, 15 sites are engaged in the trial. Dr Kellum continued, “While all of the sites are very committed to the trial, they face the challenge of balancing the demands of COVID with their ability to focus on clinical trial recruiting activities. That being said, all of our Tiger sites were specifically targeted for our study based on many characteristics, including expertise in sepsis, blood purification devices, and the conduct of clinical trials. We are pleased to announce the addition of Louisiana State University, Cleveland Clinic, and University of Arkansas, all of which are renowned institutions in the field of sepsis. In addition, the University of Michigan and Colorado Springs are now open for registration. “

“We are very excited to participate in the Tigris trial,” said Dr. Kyle Gunnerson, associate professor of emergency medicine at the University of Michigan School of Medicine. “Sepsis remains a major unmet need of patients, and we see PMX as a potentially significant therapy to address this unmet need. As a clinical site partner, we view the Tigris trial as a well-designed study positioned for a positive outcome. With the flu and the winter seasons approaching, and as COVID recedes, we expect sepsis cases to increase and believe we can be an active registration site. “

Chris Seto, CEO of Spectral, commented: “As we head into 2022, the Tigris trial is well positioned to accelerate recruitment and finalize the trial as quickly as possible. While it is important that the overall clinical environment continues to normalize, we now have all of the sites engaged. In addition, we are encouraged by the current mortality results, which exceed expectations. “

MODS vs SOFA summary

Both MODS and SOFA are measures of organ dysfunction. They report on the same six organ systems with complementary variables except for the assessment of cardiovascular dysfunction. The MODS score uses a formula that includes blood pressure, heart rate, and central venous pressure, while the SOFA score targets blood pressure and the degree of vasopressor need. With the possibility of using both scoring systems, the range of registration possibilities increases because not all patients with sepsis have the central venous pressure measured. In these cases, the SOFA method can be used.

]]> Apple HomePod mini review: sound quality, features, price and battery Sat, 27 Nov 2021 20:31:52 +0000 On first use, it seems odd that this new Apple product doesn’t have this essential feature – so it all makes sense.

Apple is back to bring color to our homes with the release of the HomePod mini in three fresh new colors – orange, yellow and blue. The mini speakers are small but ready to be a centerpiece, fitting into any room and filling it with music.


The speaker, aka HomePod mini, comes with an attached USB-C cable, a USB-C wall outlet, an Apple sticker, and a getting started guide. Move your iPhone closer to HomePod mini and your phone and mini will audibly guide you through the setup. When in use, HomePod mini is primarily voice controlled, but you can also tap the top of the device to pause, play, skip tracks, and adjust the volume.

Sound quality

Although this smart speaker is just under 8.5cm tall, its audio quality is surprisingly impressive. There is a built-in full-range loudspeaker as well as dual-force-canceling passive radiators and the shape has been carefully designed to produce high-quality 360-degree sound output.

The music sounded delightfully clear, loud, balanced and rich in bass no matter where I placed the speaker in the room. This is probably also due to the S5 chip designed by Apple which allows the speaker to optimize the sound quality according to the room where the device is placed, in real time.


Besides playing music, Siri is a big part of the HomePod mini user experience as it is able to recognize up to six different voices to give you updates and personalized information. Asking “Hey Siri, what’s my update?” »Siri gives you an overview of your day, including the weather, what’s on your calendar, commuting time for trips you make often (eg to work), what’s on your calendar has in your reminders and even a short news update.

Conversely, you can also ask Siri to set reminders or send messages – which isn’t new to Siri – but it’s handy with a HomePod that’s always on with loud responses even on the other side of the house. the room.

Some hidden features of the product that I found useful were being able to ask Siri to ‘ping my phone’ or ‘find my keys’ (with an AirTag attached), conversely, when you are relaxing at home by asking Siri to play a TV show on my Apple TV 4K. Siri can turn on your Apple TV, pause, play, and rewind shows while your HomePod mini becomes your audio output. Plus, you can use the HomePod mini to control your smart lights and tell Siri to “turn off the lights in 15 minutes.”

Some of these features aren’t entirely groundbreaking compared to other smart speakers on the market, but the HomePod mini is perfect for bringing the entire Apple ecosystem together seamlessly. And don’t get me wrong – the mini is specially designed to complement the Apple ecosystem – so it can only be used with Apple devices (first and foremost the iPhone but also the iPad) with Apple Music and Apple Podcasts.

Battery life

Interestingly, the HomePod mini is not battery powered and cannot be charged; it must be plugged in and powered. I was initially shocked by this, although I guess it’s because it’s small and I mistook the mini for a portable speaker – the HomePod mini is supposed to be a permanent device in it. a play.

The idea is to buy one or more of them and put them in places where you would listen to music or want convenient access to Siri. And if you buy more than one, you can choose to play different songs in each room, pair two as a stereo pair, or sync each HomePod mini to fill your home with music.

Overall, this is the perfect smart speaker for an iPhone user’s home. HomePod mini is also available in white and space gray, priced at $ 149, which is a great price considering the build quality and user experience.

Woman was shocked after finding Apple AirTag taped to her car Sat, 20 Nov 2021 12:18:00 +0000

Last August, we told you the story of a cybersecurity expert in Brooklyn, New York, who was able to recover his stolen bike, tracking it down himself, all thanks to an Apple AirTag he had hidden in inside the bike. The story was the subject of an interesting article and highlighted the many benefits of AirTags.

For the uninitiated, Apple AirTags are tiny, speaker-driven tracking devices that can stick to objects most likely to be misplaced. The user can then activate them using their Apple device and easily locate them by finding their missing item along the way.

Although they have many beneficial applications, such as the one mentioned above, they can also be used for unwanted surveillance. Jonesboro, Arkansas KAIT News related the story of a unidentified woman who turned on her iPhone in her car only to receive a notification that there was an AirTag somewhere nearby.

It was clearly an AirTag that she had not placed herself because at the time of the occurrence she did not even know what it was. “It turned out I have an AirTag that follows and I’m like no,” the woman said. So she came to the strange conclusion that someone else was trying to follow her.

“On my way to work and I went to plug in my phone to listen to music, then it appeared, I have an AirTag following and I’m like no,” added the still shocked woman. She then found the device stuck to her trunk, put it in a bag, and took it to the local police station for investigation.
