Can a wearable EEG monitor malfunction due to sun heat?

Can a wearable EEG monitor malfunction due to sun heat?

Unlikely: Portable monitors are fairly robust, and temperatures that are comfortable for the patient should be fine for the device. That being said, i would not leave it in direct sun in a hot car, as that might be excessive. Think of it as an expensive laptop, and that level of care should be fine. ...Read more

How does bystander lightning (not a direct strike) affect implanted pacemakers, defibrillators, vagus nerve stimulators, etc...?

How does bystander lightning (not a direct strike) affect implanted pacemakers, defibrillators, vagus nerve stimulators, etc...?

Usually no effect.: The lightning strike (even as a bystander - it travels through the soil & can pop up at distances far from the original strike) can have deleterious effects on your heart (causing arrhythmia) or brain (causing unconsciousness) but these are just as likely with or without an implanted device. All electronic implants have a floating ground, which means they cannot short out because of an external ch ...Read more

Can localised 2nd degree contact burns on ribcage (metal rod 20 second contact) damage underlying lung tissue?

Can localised 2nd degree contact burns on ribcage (metal rod 20 second contact) damage underlying lung tissue?

Highly unlikely: It depends on if there is any other trauma with the impact of the rod, but a 2nd degree burn itself should not cause any damage to the lung. A 2nd degree burn by definition is only a partial thickness injury to the skin only, so you should have no worries. ...Read more

Can the cell phone radiation exposure damage my brain all or kill any cells?

Can the cell phone radiation exposure damage my brain all or kill any cells?

No: It makes no sense biologically. The radiation isn't of the wavelengths that damage molecules, let alone kill cells. The studies that supposedly show harm are retrospective surveys that invite recall bias -- i.e., junk. Our high-tech age is difficult enough without this kind of fearmongering. You should at least enjoy its benefits. ...Read more

Portable handheld ECG monitor, where to get this?

Portable handheld ECG monitor, where to get this?

Don't do it!!!: You are going to drive yourself nuts monitoring your heart. If you have had a consultation with a cardiologist and a minimal work up that is negative, monitoring heart is only going to feed your anxiety and make everything worse. Please place your energy in things that can make you healthier (don't smoke, eat well, loose weight and exercise) If you are taking medications, be compliant. Good luck! ...Read more

Can microwave radiation from cell phone tower cause cancer ?

Can microwave radiation from cell phone tower cause cancer ?

Not that we know: The radiation energy from a cell tower is very low unless you are on the tower at the antenna. The current controversy is whether cell phone itself can cause brain malignancy since they are held close to your head while they are being used. The jury is still out on the question but prudence suggests you use your cell phone on speaker or use a blue tooth ear piece which generates lower radio ener. ...Read more

Does aluminum foil or a reflective plastic emergency blanket block radiation in case of a radiation leak or dirty bomb?

Does aluminum foil or a reflective plastic emergency blanket block radiation in case of a radiation leak or dirty bomb?

Survival: 3 questions answered: 1) Decent survival food should have similar nutrition as regular food, so insulin requirements should be similar. 2) Poop and pee can go into sealable plastic bags/drums for a while, but consider chemical toilets (porta-potty). 3) A large amount of radiation in the air will get you no matter what. Whole body decontamination suits will limit contact exposure. ...Read more

Which is better --- a manual toothbrush or battery operated?

Which is better --- a manual toothbrush or battery operated?

Both: Any brush is good if used regularly and correctly. Most dentists recommend choosing a soft-bristled brush if you are using a manual brush. With power brushes one must take extra care not to be too aggressive, as the bristles tend to be hard. A power brush should only be guided and not leaned on. Try both and see which one works best for you. Just remember to floss as well! ...Read more
