No evidence of SARS-CoV-2 in the U.K.’s wild deer population

A new study accepted for publication in the journal Transboundary and Emerging Diseases assesses the potential exposure of U.K. deer to the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) since studies have shown the spill-over of SARS-CoV-2 infections to the Northern American white-tailed deer. If there is a spill-over, wild deer species can act as reservoirs of SARS-CoV-2 with […]

Implant placed alongside a blood vessel could replace bulkier devices that stimulate nerves

An implant little bigger than a grain of rice, put gently in place alongside a strategically placed blood vessel, could replace much bulkier devices that stimulate nerves.

NIH program provides a real-time risk assessment of variants of SARS-CoV-2

The […]

AI-based model can use ECG images to diagnose multiple heart rhythm and conduction disorders

Researchers at the Yale Cardiovascular Data Science (CarDS) Lab have developed an artificial intelligence (AI)-based model for clinical diagnosis that can use electrocardiogram (ECG) images, regardless of format or layout, to diagnose multiple heart rhythm and conduction disorders.
