LIQUID FIRE,” a corrosive drain cleaner for transportation by air from Louisville, Kentucky, to Boulder, Colorado.The package leaked and nine UPS employees who came into contact with the box reported feeling a burning sensation and were treated with a chemical wash, the FAA said.The FAA said the shipment was improperly packaged, not accompanied by a declaration for dangerous goods and not properly labeled to indicate the hazardous contents.Amazon declined to answer questions about the incident or prior fines, but said in a written statement that “we ship tens of millions of products every day and have developed sophisticated technologies to detect potential shipping hazards and use any defects as an opportunity for continuous improvement. We will continue to partner with the FAA in this area.”UPS spokesman Mike Mangeot in a statement declined to discuss the incident “other than to say our employees were fine after receiving treatment.”UPS is committed to the safe transportation of hazardous materials, he said. “We expect our customers to follow hazmat regulations, and when incidents or discrepancies occur, we report those situations,” Mangeot said.The FAA alleged Amazon failed to provide emergency response information with the package, and Amazon employees who handled the package had not received required hazardous materials training.The FAA said that from February 2013 to September 2015, the government found Amazon had violated the hazardous materials regulations 24 other times seeking a total of nearly $1.3 million in fines. In at least 15 instances, hazardous material leaked, the FAA said in its notice of violation reviewed by Reuters.It was not clear how many total times Amazon paid fines or admitted responsibility, since the FAA does not issue press releases for fines below $50,000, an FAA spokesman said. The company did pay $91,000 in April 2014 for a 2013 incident.The agency is continuing to investigate Amazon’s compliance with hazardous shipment rules.In April 2014, Amazon paid a $91,000 fine to the FAA after its employees improperly shipped a package in 2013 containing flammable liquid adhesive by air on Federal Express from Whitestown, Ind., to Boulder, Colo.(Reporting by David Shepardson; editing by David Gregorio and Diane Craft) Reuters June 14, 2016 Apply Now »last_img read more

Stratasys advanced FDM 3D printing helps Biodonostia to improve treatment for thoracic

first_imgOrdinarily, in a case like this, we would remove the affected ribs and correct the defect by covering the area with a titanium plate. These plates are a standard size, designed for men of 100 KG or women of 50 KG, and need to be altered and rotated during surgery to suit each patient specification. In a complicated surgery, this can add hours to the operating time.”Dr  Jon Zabaleta, Thoracic Surgeon at Biodonostia Using precision 3D printing, surgeons at Biodonostia are able to create highly-accurate patient-specific 3D models to plan for thoracic wall tumor surgeries. Surgical time for the removal of a complicated thoracic wall tumor in a 64-year-old patient reduced by 2 hours due to the ability to plan the surgery in advance with a patient-specific 3D printed model. Surgeons are now able to reduce often lengthy and invasive steps by measuring the necessary screws and pre-bending the titanium plates accurately before the surgery using the patient-specific, accurate 3D printed model. Biodonostia is now working with 23 hospitals across Spain, providing them with access to advanced Stratasys 3D printing technology to enhance pre-surgical planning and improve patient care. By creating a precise, anatomically-accurate 3D printed model of the thoracic wall, we were able to plan and perform the resection on the 3D model ahead of the surgery. This allowed us to measure the screws and pre-bend the titanium plates in advance and helped reduce the overall operating time by 2 hours. For the patient, this meant a significant reduction in time under anesthesia, and for our hospital, freeing up time in operating rooms saves costs.”Dr Jon Zabaleta, Thoracic Surgeon, Biodonostia Health Research Institute Benefits/Value: Related StoriesBordeaux University Hospital uses 3D printing to improve kidney tumor removal surgeryStratasys’ new J720 Dental 3D printer sets new standards for digital dentistryStratasys and Materialise bring 3D printed medical models to lifeAs Dr Zabaleta explains, this case presented a complex challenge for the surgical team, as removing the tumor would require removal of more than one rib, an unusual method of treatment that increased the risks associated with the surgery. As a result, the surgeons needed to find the best way to correct the defect with the strength to protect the lungs, while maintaining flexibility and movement in the chest.In order to explore and plan the surgery, the surgeons turned to their partnership with Tknika and Tecnun to produce an advanced, patient-specific 3D model of the patient’s thoracic wall on the Stratasys Fortus 450 mc 3D Printer. Together, the hospital’s partners converted a conventional CT scan of the patient into a 3D printed model and return edit to the surgical team within 24 hours. Jan 25 2019Executive Summary: Founded in 2008, the Biodonostia Health Research Institute was the first institute for medical research in the Basque region of Spain. Facing difficult surgical challenges every day, it recently partnered with Tknika, a Research and Applied Innovation Centre for Vocational Education and Training in the Basque region, and Tecnun, a specialist division of Universidad de Navarra, to enable surgeons to harness the latest 3D printing technology as a tool to aid surgical preparedness. Now, using Stratasys advanced FDM 3D printing technology, the hospital can create advanced, patient-specific 3D printed models to plan for complex cases such as complicated thoracic wall tumors. The partnership allows them to convert the CT scan of the patient into a 3D printed model and deliver it to the surgical team within 24 hours. Due to these models, the team are now enjoying a reduction in surgical time, avoidance of lengthy, invasive surgical procedures and improved patient care. 3D printing is an essential surgical tool for us. Previously, no 3D printed model we created in-house could meet the level of detail and accuracy we needed. However, thanks to our partnership with these local institutions, we now have access to advanced 3D printing technology from Stratasys that enables us to meet the demands required to create highly-accurate, patient-specific 3D models.”Dr  Jon Zabaleta, Thoracic Surgeon at Biodonostiacenter_img Patient-specific 3D-printed model of a tumor on the thoracic wall. 3D printed using the Stratasys Fortus 450 mc. Biodonostia Health Research Institute, founded in 2008, is the first institute for medical research in the Basque region of Spain. Today it undertakes research in seven subject areas that bring together over 350 researchers across 26 groups. Daily, the institute, and the co-located Donostia University Hospital where all treatment takes place, face challenging surgical cases. These all require precise, complex and often difficult surgeries during which surgeons need to make the most of every tool in their arsenal to ensure a safe clinical outcome.A new, and vital tool is 3D printing. The hospital recently entered into a partnership with Tknika, a Research and Applied Innovation Centre for Vocation Education and Training in the Basque region, and Tecnun, a specialist division of Universidad de Navarra, providing the surgical team with access to more advanced 3D printing technology. Stratasys FDM 3D printing has proved particularly important when treating complex, and often life-threatening thoracic wall tumors. Located on the chest wall, thoracic tumors can cause excessive and painful swelling, or lead to breathing trouble for the patient.Surgical Time Reduced by Two Hours In a recent case, a 64-year-old man came to Dr Zabaleta and his team with an extremely complicated tumor on his thoracic wall. Over the course of two years, the tumor had slowly grown up his chest cavity and spread across multiple ribs. The man was in intense pain, with surgeons concerned about his respiratory function. For this thoracic wall tumor, the surgeons required a model strong enough to replicate human bone, so the teams at Tknika and Tecnun selected Stratasys FDM technology thanks to the ability to print in engineering-grade thermoplastics.“Our partnership afforded us access to the necessary technology to produce a large and complex model that was incredibly strong, close to the real bones we would face during surgery. Without the strength of this model, we could not have prepared for the surgery in the same way,” explains Dr Zabaleta.In addition, Dr Zabaleta credits an improvement in patient-doctor communication to the 3D models. For the man in the aforementioned case, the ability to use 3D printed models to explain how they intended to protect his lungs helped to alleviate his anxiety ahead of a complicated operation and enables informed consent to be achieved quicker and more easily. Additionally, the surgical consult is faster and more efficient, offering the surgeon time to see more patientsExtending the use of 3D printing to other disciplinesDr. Zabaleta believes that the next natural step will be for all surgical disciplines at Biodonostia to use Stratasys 3D printing to prepare and plan for surgeries, as it offers the hospital the opportunity to innovate their treatment procedures and improve patient care.“The use of the 3D printed model was so essential to this case, and we are working to apply this to many other surgical disciplines across the hospital, from pancreatic tumors to airway stenosis,and these 3D printed models are already being used to help train our future surgeons,”explains Dr.Zabaleta.Ultimately, the goal of the partnership with Tknika and Tecnun is to create a multi-disciplinary team that collaborates to create the best possible 3D printed surgical models for the hospital on-demand, with Tecnun’s involvement centering around the segmentation and reconstruction of the models, and Tknika producing the final 3D printed versions. But this collaboration is not just limited to Biodonostia, as the hospital is currently working to provide 3D printed models to 23 other hospitals across Spain.“We’re thankful to have such knowledgeable partners in Tknika and Tecnun. Coupled with the dedicated local support of Stratasys distributor, Pixel Sistemas, we’re confident that the hospital can continue to help patients with access to the most advanced 3D printing solutions,” concludes Dr Zabaleta.

Expansion of eligibility criteria means more people will benefit from cochlear implants

first_imgMar 11 2019Many more people across England and Wales with hearing loss will be able to access the life-changing benefits of a cochlear implant. This is the result of a decision by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) to expand the criteria used when determining who is eligible for a cochlear implant within the NHS.The threshold for eligibility has been reduced to equal or greater than 80 dB HL (decibels hearing loss) at two or more frequencies without the use of hearing aids, down from 90 dB HL for children and adults with severe to profound hearing loss. 80 dB is equivalent to an alarm clock.This important change follows concerted campaigning from the hearing-impaired community, healthcare professionals, Cochlear and key groups including the British Academy of Audiology (BAA), the British Society of Audiology (BSA) and the British Cochlear Implant Group (BCIG).Against the backdrop of these guidance changes, a global survey by Cochlear Ltd to assess the impact and understand attitudes to hearing loss highlights people in the UK are least likely of any country surveyed to have had a hearing test in the last two years.Cochlear’s 2019 State of Hearing Report reveals 96% of adults in the UK think hearing is important to their overall quality of life, yet more than 7 in 10 (71%) of people who believe they have hearing loss have not had their hearing checked.Stuart Thomas, General Manager, U.K. Ireland & South Africa, Cochlear, says: Cochlear and the World Health Organization are urging people around the world to treat their hearing as a vital health priority by having their hearing checked as a regular part of ongoing healthcare.Dr Huw Cooper, Cochlear UK’s Implant Team Manager, says: Most hearing loss is treatable and some is preventable, but it’s not prioritized in the same way as other health conditions. We are committed to improving the lives of people living with hearing loss through extensive research, development and constant innovation. We want as many people as possible to benefit from this criteria change, so that more people can reach their potential and lead full and connected lives.” The State of Hearing Report, which surveyed 2,248 people across the UK, highlights that untreated hearing loss is having a detrimental impact upon relationships. 46% of the UK population surveyed have a close family member who suffers from moderate through to profound hearing loss, with 86% stating it impacts their family member’s ability to communicate.As a result, 62% of people in the UK believe that hearing loss can result in withdrawal and isolation from society.At the same time, 7 in 10 of those surveyed believe hearing loss is an inevitable part of aging, causing delays in prevention, monitoring and treatment, and leading to people living a poorer quality of life. Cochlear’s State of Hearing 2019 report outlines a clear need for people to take action to address preventable and treatable hearing loss.Consultant Ear Nose and Throat Surgeon, Mr David Selvadurai, of St George’s Hospital, London, says: Today disabling hearing loss affects 466 million people around the world, with one in three people over the age of 65 living with severe to profound forms of the condition. World Health Organization figures predict the total number of people living with hearing loss will nearly double by 2050 and this increase will be most noticeable amongst older people.center_img As the world’s population continues to live longer, preventing hearing loss, while maintaining and restoring hearing, will become imperative for general health and wellbeing. Getting a hearing test can be the first step in making sure people maintain their quality of life and continue to be part of society. Even if you are currently wearing hearing aids, regular check-ups are important as there are other options available.Hearing loss is frequently dismissed as an inevitable part of aging, leading to delays in action and people living a poorer quality of life. Hearing loss is a significant health issue impacting our ability to have normal conversations with loved ones and friends. It impacts our ability to stay connected, healthy and productive.” Source:http://www.cochlear.com I see people every week who could benefit from a cochlear implant but have been outside of the previous NICE guidance. These individuals can now have a simple surgical procedure that is genuinely life changing.Many people don’t seem to be aware how much better they could be with a cochlear implant, how safe and straightforward the surgery now is and the huge range of potential benefits they might enjoy. Cochlear implants allow adults to re-enter many social situations, feel safer in the outside world and for many, offer the possibility of talking to friends and family over the telephone. This change of criteria will make a real impact on the kind of care we can deliver to many of our patients.”last_img read more

UK unveils energy price cap to help 11 mn households

first_imgThe energy price cap would save consumers a total of £1.0 billion annually Britain seeks to cap ‘rip-off’ energy prices Explore further Britain’s energy watchdog on Thursday proposed a temporary price cap on gas and electricity that could benefit 11 million households, notably the most vulnerable exposed to excessive cost hikes. Ofgem’s proposal, that follows recent government legislation, calls for an initial annual ceiling of £1,136 ($1,468, 1,263 euros) for households using both gas and electricity.”Over 11 million more households on poor value default tariffs would be protected from being overcharged under proposals announced by Ofgem,” the regulator said in a statement.”Ofgem is working to have the cap in place by the end of the year,” it added.Britain’s privatised domestic energy sector, run largely by UK group Centrica and eurozone-based companies, has faced criticism over default high tariffs that punish customers who for various reasons do not seek out a better deal by switching provider.”When the price cap is introduced suppliers will have to cut their prices to the level of or below the cap, proposed to be £1,136 per year for a typical dual fuel customer” whose pay monthly from their bank accounts, Ofgem said Thursday.The limit would save consumers using a typical amount of gas and electricity about £75 per year on average—and in total some £1.0 billion annually.”Ofgem has made full use of the powers parliament has given us to propose a tough price cap which will give a fairer deal to consumers on poor value default tariffs,” said the watchdog’s chief executive Dermot Nolan.Ofgem said it would update the cap’s level twice a year.”The price cap is designed to be a temporary measure, in place until 2023 at the latest,” the watchdog said. “This will allow Ofgem to put in place further reforms to make the energy market more competitive and work better for all consumers, including making switching energy supplier easier, quicker and more reliable.”Share prices in energy group’s jumped on Thursday’s news, with British Gas-owned Centrica surging 5.3 percent to 151 pence in London.”This announcement marks the end of uncertainty for energy providers,” noted David Madden, analyst at CMC Markets UK.center_img © 2018 AFP This document is subject to copyright.
