Cardiovascular Disease / Autonomic Nervous System Testing

Cardiovascular Disease and Autonomic Nervous System Testing
Presented by Dr. Mehmet Kaya

Provides an overview of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). Explains why ANS function tests include measurement of heart rate variability (HRV) from electrocardiography (ECG) recordings, pulse wave velocity (PWV) measurements from photoplethysmography (PPG) recordings, sudomotor function testing using quantitative sudomotor axon reflex test (QSART) and sympathetic skin response (SSR) test, are very important. Provides a short overview of these three tests, with added detail information.


Advances & Challenges for Affordable Healthcare

Bioceramics: Advances and Challenges for Affordable Healthcare
Presented by Dr. Larry Hench

The ethical and technical challenges facing affordable healthcare in the 21st century are addressed, with an emphasis on the evolution and clinical applications of bioactive ceramic materials. Topics include tissue bonding, regenerative medicine, state-of-the-art medical implants and long-term viability, along with socio-economic implications and ethical considerations. Alternative approaches to tissue repair will be discussed, and the advent of third-generation materials and nanomaterials will be addressed.
