“Many Americans die every year because they need kidney transplants, in large part due to federal laws banning organ sales. …an average of over 30,000 Americans have died each year, because the ban prevented them from getting transplants in time.” [Ilya Somin; Frank McCormick, Philip J. Held, and Glenn M. Chertow, Journal of the American Society of Nephrology] More: Michael Huemer (“I don’t know what ‘commodification’ is or why anyone should care about it.

Porcupine quills are sharp AF and inspiring a new kind of surgical staple

From Deep Look: The quills of North American porcupines have microscopic backward-facing barbs on the tips. Those barbs make the quills slide in easy but very difficult to remove. Researchers at Harvard are looking to porcupine quills for inspiration in designing a new type of surgical staple that would also use tiny barbs to keep itself lodged into the patient’s skin. This helps because traditional staples curve in under the skin to keep the staple in place. This creates more damage and ...

Petdali’s pet wheelchair gives Lassie extra feet

I’ve had the good fortune of having pets at home, and during their growing years, I’ve seen their mischief getting them into trouble. One of my Alsatians was quite a perky guy and would love running and jumping the fences. On one occasion, I remember him injuring his hind leg and had to limp around for several weeks. Back in the days we didn’t have pet wheelchairs, and the one like Petdali’s pet wheelchair, would have been godsend. Although designed for pets with hind-leg disabilities, and with ...

The New Tia Clinic is a Complete Reimagining of the Gynecology Office Experience

When history credits a man for introducing modern gynecology (yes, it’s true, his name is James Marion Sims, and he was known to experiment on enslaved women at that) it’s no surprise that OBGYN clinics receive notorious complaints as being a place of angst and uneasiness. Whoever decided that asylum-like patient rooms, harsh white lights, and cheap paper gowns would foster the cornerstones of a place where females get their reproductive health examined was probably not a woman. Let us introdu...

A baby thermometer with fun sounds for those high-temperature days!

As a mother of two children in their twenties, I know how harrowing unwell kids can be! Even at this age they kick-up so much fuss, so imagine what toddlers can do.
