New stretchable electronics device promises to make cardiac ablation therapy simpler In an improvement over open-heart surgery, cardiologists now use catheters to eliminate damaged heart tissue in certain patients, such as those with arrhythmias. But this, too, can be a long and painful procedure as many catheters, with different functions, need to be inserted sequentially. Now an interdisciplinary team including researchers from Northwestern University has developed one catheter that can do...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- The drug rt-PA may prevent infection in kidney dialysis patients, according to a new study. People with kidney failure undergo hemodialysis -- a treatment that cleans out their blood. Often, a catheter is required. However, catheter malfunction is a complication that involves blood clots forming at the catheter tip as well as infections in the bloodstream. The drug heparin is used as a locking solution in the catheter after dialysis to help prevent malfunction and keep...

Intravenous therapy, commonly known as IV therapy, is known as the administration of a liquid substance directly into a vein. It is also known as drip therapy, because most often the liquid is suspended above the IV site by an infusion pump, and runs through a drip chamber, which prevents air from entering the line. IVs are the preferred method of drug administration in hospital settings because they are the fastest known route of getting medication to the body. Intravenous therapy can also...
