Superior Sensor Technology’s New Differential Pressure Sensor Enables Higher Pulmonary Testing Range in Spirometers

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Superior Sensor Technology today announced the SP160 pressure sensor that will enable manufacturers to cost-effectively develop spirometry equipment with more precise spirometric measurements for higher pressure range applications, such as athletes with larger lung capacity.  The SP160 is the first single sensor to support Multi-Range with four multiple programmable high pressure variants, ranging from 5K Pa to 40K Pa, with a very stable zero measurement and no degradation to performance on each variant. Other pressure sensor solutions require multiple sensors to achieve the same results, making it more expensive and time-consuming for manufacturers to develop spirometers with these higher pressure ranges. 

The SP160 is based on the company’s proprietary NimbleSense™ architecture, which is the first intelligent system-in-a-sensor that offers manufacturers a high-performance, programmable, flexible sensor solution. The SP160’s

High blood pressure in midlife is linked to increased brain damage in later life — ScienceDaily

Higher than normal blood pressure is linked to more extensive brain damage in the elderly, according to a new study published today (Thursday) in the European Heart Journal.

In particular, the study found that there was a strong association between diastolic blood pressure (the blood pressure between heart beats) before the age of 50 and brain damage in later life, even if the diastolic blood pressure was within what is normally considered to be a healthy range.

The findings come from a study of 37,041 participants enrolled in UK Biobank, a large group of people recruited from the general population aged between 40 and 69 years, and for whom medical information, including MRI brain scans was available.

The research, carried out by Dr Karolina Wartolowska, a clinical research fellow at the Centre for Prevention of Stroke and Dementia, University of Oxford, UK, looked for damage in the brain called

Genetic study shows that the risk of pre-eclampsia is related to blood pressure and BMI — ScienceDaily

Pre-eclampsia, usually diagnosed by increased blood pressure and protein in urine, affects up to 5% of pregnant women. It contributes worldwide to the death of estimated 50 000 women and up to one million babies annually. The condition is also associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases among mothers and their children later in life. There is an inherited risk, with women with a family history of pre-eclampsia at greater risk of developing the condition themselves.

In the InterPregGen study, researchers from the UK, Iceland, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan studied how maternal genetic variation influences the risk of pre-eclampsia. The team studied the genetic make-up of 9,515 pre-eclamptic women and 157,719 control individuals.

The results, reported today in Nature Communications, pinpointed DNA variants in the ZNF831 and FTO genes as risk factors for pre-eclampsia. These genes have previously been associated with blood pressure, and the FTO

Big Tech faces rising pressure in Congress and courts

While the tech industry delivers many benefits to society, governments around the world have been showing a rising interest in regulating it. Digital platforms, they worry, may be encouraging tech overuse and eroding privacy among consumers, curbing competition among businesses, and failing to adequately manage their societal role as gatekeepers of information. 

In the U.S., tighter antitrust oversight appears to be already taking shape. On Oct. 20, the U.S. Justice Department sued Google for using anticompetitive practices to maintain its dominance over search and search advertising. And many Democrats in Congress support legislation to break up tech monopolies.

Separate questions are swirling about what role tech giants should play in controlling misinformation online, and Republican allegations that the firms have an anti-conservative bias. The Senate Commerce Committee has been considering whether changes are needed to a 1996 provision that protects internet companies from liability for what people say on their

Social isolation during COVID-19 pandemic linked with high blood pressure — ScienceDaily

Lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic is associated with an increase in high blood pressure among patients admitted to emergency. That’s the finding of a study presented at the 46th Argentine Congress of Cardiology (SAC).

SAC 2020 is a virtual meeting during 19 to 21 November. Faculty from the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) will participate in joint scientific sessions with the Argentine Society of Cardiology as part of the ESC Global Activities programme.

“Admission to the emergency department during the mandatory social isolation period was linked with a 37% increase in the odds of having high blood pressure — even after taking into account age, gender, month, day and time of consultation, and whether or not the patient arrived by ambulance,” said study author Dr. Matías Fosco of Favaloro Foundation University Hospital, Buenos Aires.

Mandatory social isolation due to COVID-19 was implemented on 20 March in Argentina as a

Algorithm-driven digital program helped lower patients’ cholesterol, blood pressure — ScienceDaily

Using a remotely-delivered, algorithm-driven program for disease management, patients experienced significant improvement in cholesterol and blood pressure levels, according to late-breaking research presented today at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions 2020. The virtual meeting is Friday, November 13-Tuesday, November 17, 2020, and is a premier global exchange of the latest scientific advancements, research and evidence-based clinical practice updates in cardiovascular science for health care. The manuscript of this study is simultaneously published today in Circulation, the American Heart Association’s flagship journal.

Failure to appropriately treat hypercholesterolemia (high cholesterol) and hypertension (high blood pressure) remains an ongoing clinical challenge that increases the risk of heart attacks, stroke and cardiovascular death. Using digital tools, clinicians at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, initiated and continue to conduct a remote, algorithmically driven, hypercholesterolemia and hypertension management program.

Between January of 2018 and May of 2020, researchers screened 18,810 patients and

Huawei sells Honor under ‘tremendous pressure’ from US sanctions

honor 30 pro plus review logo
  • Huawei has sold off Honor to Shenzhen Zhixin New Information Technology Co.
  • Once the sale is complete, Huawei will have no stake in Honor.
  • There’s no word about the future of Honor phones and other products.

Huawei has finally sold off its sub-brand Honor after weeks of rumors about the sale. The new owner of the Honor brand is a company called Shenzhen Zhixin New Information Technology Co.

In a statement detailing the development, Huawei attributed Honor’s sale to the “tremendous pressure” its business has been facing because of US sanctions. The company says that “a persistent unavailability of technical elements” needed for its mobile phone business forced it to sell all business assets of Honor.
