Healthcare Innovations to Address the Challenges of the COVID-19 Pandemic

Metin Akay, Shankar Subramaniam, Colin Brenan, Paolo Bonato, Charlotte Mae K Waits, Bruce Wheeler, Dimitrios I I Fotiadis

 

To address the challenges of bringing COVID-19 solutions into clinical practice quickly, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) convened an international COVID-19 forum. In the group, 29 scientific researchers and innovators, industry leaders, clinical experts, and policy makers from the USA, Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific provided a comprehensive and multi-dimensional perspective on the pandemic crisis. Their major recommendations are now published in the IEEE Journal of Biomedical Health Informatics.

Innovative Vaccines to Fight COVID-19, Other Viruses
 

Bringing vaccine delivery into the 21st century

Although they may not replace the traditional jab, new methods of vaccine delivery—including tablets and transdermal delivery systems—provide stable, easy-to-transport alternatives that could enable widespread dissemination and contribute to herd immunity for a range of infectious diseases.

Heart-Lung Interactions During Mechanical Ventilation: Analysis via a Cardiopulmonary Simulation Model

Nikolaos Karamolegkos, Antonio Albanese, Nicolas W. Chbat

 

This article presents simulation results from a cardiopulmonary model during simulated mechanical ventilation conditions in order to analyze mechanical heart-lung interactions and their effects on cardiac activity. The model is validated with human data and helps in explaining contradictory experimental observations.
