Is Google Home a Trojan Horse in Healthcare?

In this study, recently-diagnosed diabetes patients were asked to use the technology to have "heart to heart" conversations with Alexa about what they want their friends and family to understand about their disease and what they are going through. The researchers found that patients were having genuine, meaningful conversations with Alexa about their disease, but the downside was that Alexa still sounds very robotic, which raised the question of whether or not Alexa or other voice-assisted technologies need to sound more human in order to have these types of conversations with patients and have the same impact? "We don't think so," Bogdalek said. "We would like to see Alexa become a little bit more real [sounding] but not too real to be able to distinguish between a human and something tha...

CHICAGO (AP) ? There’s an extra bonus to marriage for melanoma patients: They tend to be diagnosed in earlier more treatable stages than patients who are unmarried, widowed or divorced, a new study says. Spouses may be apt to notice suspicious moles on their partners that could signal melanoma, the most dangerous type skin cancer. More importantly, they may also be more inclined to nag their partners to get those moles checked out, the researchers said. The findings suggest that unmarried people should ask relatives or friends to do skin checks or seek frequent skin exams with dermatologists. Why marriage might a difference in diagnosis isn’t clear since unmarried partners or observant friends might also notice skin changes. But maybe married people have more opportunities to...

Discussion Distal digits, especially of the hand, are important as they provide support for pinching and grip, give tactile sensation and contribute to cosmesis. Trauma to the distal digit and nailbed ranges from significant trauma with digital crush injuries or amputation to minor broken nails causing only annoyance. Most injuries especially in children involve the hand especially the middle finger. The dominant hand is more common if the child has a hand-preference. Usually they occur indoors especially being caused by being pinched by a door. Significant trauma requires surgical intervention and may require specialty surgical intervention by a hand specialist. Survival rates for distal digital amputations with re-implantation vary based on several factors. A 2011 systematic review of f...
