Purchasing Insight: Portable X-ray

Portable chest X-rays are the most common diagnostic exam in intensive care units. Having the ability to perform them at the bedside is extremely valuable, as there exists clear clinical evidence that the latest digital radiography (DR) detector portable X-ray units allow for portable exams to be performed in almost half the time previously required for computed radiography (CR) and film-based exams. Substantial point-of-care diagnostic advantages can be realized through mobile X-ray units equipped with digital flat panel detectors. This technology allows physicians to view radiographic images in a matter of seconds after exposure and offers improved patient care and a more streamlined workflow for clinicians. There also is often a 30 to 50 percent reduction in radiation dose with the newer technology. Pricing for portable X-ray systems varies, depending first on the technology segment (analog versus digital), then on the power rating of the unit's chassis, and finally on the type and size of flat panel detector that is associated with the system. Multiple sizes of flat panel detectors are available to be paired with mobile X-ray units. Larger panels are typically 14" × 17" while smaller panel detectors come in four common sizes—11" × 14", 8" × 12", 24 cm × 30 cm, and 25 cm × 30 cm. Although it is possible to use both larger and smaller panels in conjunction with one mobile X-ray unit, doing so will increase the price of the unit dramatically. Smaller panels are most often utilized in NICUs and for orthopedic imaging of extremities, while larger panels are used for most other portable X-ray exams, such as studies of the chest, hips, and abdomen. Although analog portable X-ray units require a modest investment, $40,000 to $80,000, as compared with their digital cousins, advances in flat panel detector technology have made digital systems coupled with flat panels the gold standard in most U.S. hospitals today. Hospitals with an existing analog system have the option to retrofit a detector, which typically costs $62,000 to $140,000 depending on the size and type of flat panel. New fully-digital portable X-ray units run about $125,000 to $235,000 depending on maximum power output options and type of detector selected. Regarding service and support, most organizations opt for full-coverage service plans that include tube, battery, and detector drop protection because of the high cost of repairing and replacing the flat panel detectors. Analog units may require only partial coverage, such as second-call or time and materials only agreements, because they often can be serviced by trained hospital biomedical engineering (BME) staff.

Is snap portable across other UNIX (example macOS)?

Yes, thanks to the stability of the Linux syscall interface, this is possible.One of Linus Torvalds' great commitments to Linux users is that the set of interfaces offered by the kernel is stable. Many people do not appreciate the value of this, or how challenging it is as a leader of an open project to achieve that commitment. Consider for example how unpredictable changes in the GNOME APIs are by contrast! When you hear about Linus getting intense on a mailing list, it's almost always because some committer to the kernel decided to change such an interface 'because they had a better idea'. Linus says you can innovate wildly INSIDE the kernel, but please do not break the 'userspace' apps which depend on existing syscalls.As a consequence of that stability it is possible for other kernels to offer the same syscalls, allowing apps built on Linux to run on those other kernels. One example of that is the Joyent Triton project, which offer Linux-compatible syscalls in containers on SmartOS (a descendent of IllumOS, a descendent of Solaris).A more widely known example is the new Linux subsystem in Windows.Of course, how many of the syscalls are offered, and how bug-for-bug compatible they are, is the real question. At least for now, there is not another environment where all the necessary syscalls are in place, because the ones snaps use are relatively new and deep in the way the kernel thinks about the things it manages.But they will certainnly come, in time, and I think snaps will thus be usable in a wide range of contexts.Which is very cool, patches welcome :)

Keeping Your Gym Members Safe with a Portable AED
Many gyms and health clubs provide state-of-the-art training and equipment to help their members lead long, strong lives. It's also important to make certain that these facilities have state-of-the-art safety equipment such as CPR supplies and a portable AED (automatic external defibrillator). Without the proper safety equipment, the risk of health club members' deaths greatly increases. In Massachusetts a woman died from sudden cardiac arrest and while an off-duty paramedic tried to revive her, he did not have the necessary equipment - namely a portable AED. Led by local legislators and the late woman's mother, the state now requires that every fitness center own an AED and have a trained user on duty during all staffed business hours. That is just one example of how a portable AED can combat such tragedies. Unfortunately, the cost of an automated external defibrillator (as low as $1,000) often times stops health clubs and gyms from providing these life-saving devices. With states now requiring portable AEDs, health clubs may be required to comply and provide the life-saving equipment even if it means negatively impacting the bottom line. Once finances are in order, purchasing a portable AED can be easy if you keep in mind the following steps: 1.Ensure that the company you are entrusting with your health equipment needs is supported by the Better Business Bureau. Look into the awards they've received - especially safety awards - as well as feedback from their current customers. Are they easy and friendly to work with? Do you feel they will be around for the long haul? Can you trust them with the health and safety of your members? 2.Make sure that your portable defibrillators come with a warranty to protect against any malfunctions. While many units are vigorously tested to ensure they are performing properly, you want to rest easy knowing a backup is available if you need it. 3.Look into a Loaner Program which allows for customers to receive an identical defibrillator unit to replace a unit that needs service or repair. Verify that your AED supplier will provide a loaner unit if your unit ever needs to be serviced, repaired or replaced. 4.Verify that the AED comes complete with everything you need to get started, including the device itself as well as a carrying case, electrodes, a battery, operations manual, training DVD and AED check card. Don't forget the aforementioned Warranty and Loaner Program. 5.Examine the various customer service offerings and see if they meet your needs. Do units come with a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee? What is the charge for shipping? Are there any additional products offered (either discounted or free-of-charge) that you can bundle with your order? 6.When an AED is available, proper training on how to use the device is a key component. The American Red Cross provides training in addition to other life-saving training such as CPR and first aid. According to the Red Cross, its "first aid, CPR and AED programs are designed to give you the confidence to respond in an emergency situation with skills that can save a life." Supporting the health and fitness of one's local community goes well above supplying cardio equipment and free weights. Gym and health club executives need to proactively ensure their members are safe at all times.
