Inflatable Device Stops the Bleeding

A fast, efficient balloon-based system could save lives on the street and battlefield.

Uncontrolled bleeding is a major cause of death on the battlefield, and according to military medical experts, it accounts for 80 percent of otherwise preventable deaths. One problem is that there are no effective treatments for deep, penetrating wounds, which are too severe for gauze packing and are in areas where a tourniquet cannot be applied. To stop life-threatening bleeding in such instances, Maynard Ramsey, the chief executive officer and chief technology officer at CardioCommand, a Tampa, FL-based medical device company, has developed a balloon-based system that can be inserted into a wound and inflated in less than 90 seconds.

The baby bottle that heats itself up in 60 seconds

yoomi bottle

When feeding a tiny baby from a bottle, the trick is to heat up the milk. And for parents too tired to do it, the trick could be the Yoomi.

The gadget, which has won innovation and research awards, heats a baby’s feed bottle to the temperature of breast milk with just the touch of a button.

The milk is ready to use in 60 seconds after heating to around 32-34 degrees celsius.

According to the husband-and-wife inventors, solicitor Farah and engineer Jim Shaikh, the device was born out of desperation after the birth of their eldest boy Danial.

Their experiences of stumbling around the kitchen in the early hours heating milk in the microwave or begging waiters for hot water when out to warm the bottle in, mirror those of millions of other couples.

Six years ago, Dr Shaikh, 43, first sketched the concept on a pub napkin. Later the product was road tested on the couple’s second son Niall, now aged two.

The gadget that makes a difference is the sealed warmer unit that sits inside the bottle and beneath the teat.

Pressing a button on the side of the unit triggers heating of a solution contained within the warmer.
