Patient information as an event – Interactive, in multimedia format, personal
He (or she) who seeks shall find. First of all online. But not all information in the internet is good and correct. This can even be harmful in health issues because websites cannot make up for a visit at the physician’s. Still, searching the internet can be the right starting point for patients. This is the case when different channels join to create a good contact to the doctor: multimedia, daily newspaper, presentations and one-to-one talk – many roads lead to the answer.
Unmanned flying helpers - Emergency care via drone
The willingness to donate blood in Germany is waning. Thus, it is increasingly important for central blood banks to provide blood and blood products to the hospitals in the quantity that is needed. Especially in large cities, strong traffic is a major problem for emergency transports. Small unmanned aerial vehicles, also known as “drones”, could soon provide relief in this difficult situation.
Centralized biobanks - Treasure troves of medical research
Most disciplines do not rely on paper libraries for their research. Working with tissue and fluid samples that have been donated by patients or healthy volunteers is necessary in medicine. Our camera takes a look at the inner workings of the centralized biomaterial bank at the RWTH Aachen University (RWTH cBMB). There, we learn more about data protection, technology and organization surrounding the storage of these biological samples.
