the rise of remote patient monitoring (RPM)

Posted by Neoteryx on Dec 14, 2017 6:44:00 AM

Remote patient monitoring is on the rise as more researchers and technicians, and the clinicians that rely upon them, adopt new technologies that improve the quality of patient care. Remote monitoring of patients encompasses a broad range of approaches, from the use of mobile devices to monitor heart rate and exercise levels to remote blood collection using microsampling.

small samples, big impact: mitra vs. malnutrition

Posted by Neoteryx on Dec 12, 2017 5:00:00 AM

Lean, low-resource field work poses unique challenges to those involved, whether in research or diagnosis. Mitra® microsampling technology has the potential to meet and overcome some of these challenges.

Recently, Volumetric Absorptive Microsampling (VAMS™) technology helped a group of organ transplant patients summit Mt. Kilimanjaro. Now students and scientists from the biomedical engineering program at Duke University have found another transformative new use case: testing children in Liberia for biomarkers associated with malnutrition.

why a positive participant experience is crucial for clinical trials

Posted by Neoteryx on Dec 7, 2017 5:25:00 AM

Participating in a clinical trial is not as simple as taking pills. The medication may come as a self-administered injection or an IV infusion. Blood work and imaging can be needed on a regular basis. Transportation must be arranged. Appointments with physicians and other medical professionals will be necessary, resulting in more transportation. Side effects of medications can cause lost time at work. Family and job responsibilities may interfere with patient participation.

how to use capillary blood samples in pediatric PK studies

Posted by Neoteryx on Dec 5, 2017 6:10:00 AM

Pharmacokinetic (PK) studies investigate the absorption and movement of drugs within the body. Since children absorb and process drugs differently than adults do, PK studies have to be done on children to determine safe and effective doses.

microsampling and patient-centered medicine

Posted by Neoteryx on Nov 30, 2017 5:28:00 AM

In days gone by, the doctor was considered a deity of sorts. Nurses and technicians stood at attention when this Olympian individual walked into a room. Most patients understood that they would be wise to follow the doctor's orders with precision and without question. That was doctor-centered medicine.
