Slipknot Wants Paul Gray’s Doctor to ‘Pay’

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Legal Issues, Obituaries,

Daniel BaldiSlipknot want Paul Gray's doctor to "pay for what he has done."

The group are "in a state of anger and sadness" following the news Dr. Daniel Baldi has been charged with the involuntary manslaughter of the bassist - who had battled addiction for many years and died of an accidental overdose in June 2010 - and have vowed to do all they can to help the investigation, with the medic also being probed over the deaths of seven other patients.

"As the loss of our brother Paul Gray is still very fresh for us in the Slipknot family, this new development has us all in a state of anger and sadness. The fact that this person took advantage of our brother's illness while he was in a position to help others has outraged everyone in our family. We can only hope that justice will be served so this can never happen to anyone else ever again! Our thoughts go out to the families of the other victims. We plan to cooperate as much as we possibly can to ensure this tragedy is never repeated, and to make sure this man pays for what he has done," they said in a statement.

If Baldi is convicted of all the charges, he could face up to 16 years in jail.

Henry Ford Hospital Tweets Operations

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Internet, Science,

Henry Ford TwitterEven doctors love Twitter. Last week surgeons from the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan sent short updates while removing a cancerous tumor from a man’s kidney. Sent by the chief resident, the messages were watched by medical students, doctors and perhaps fans of “Grey’s Anatomy.” Four months ago, Robert Hendrick, while under local anesthesia, tweeted his varicose vein removal surgery while the event was taking place. He claimed that it not only took his mind off it and lessened his nervousness, but family and friends were there to support him.

Instymeds Dispenses InstyDrugs

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Household, Misc. Tech, Science,

InstymedsIt won’t be long before pharmacists are replaced by InstyMeds, vending machines that can be placed in clinics, hospitals, and doctors offices. The current model holds 100 different drugs and 8 to 22 bottles of each drug. It labels and dispenses tablets, capsules, inhalers, sprays, creams and ointments, suspensions and syrups. Using PC writing software, the physician merely enters the patient’s information. The patient then uses a touchscreen to enter name and date of birth, chooses a printed prescription or fills it there and inserts cash or credit card. Insurance companies are billed automatically for co-pays. Not only will this cut down on handwriting errors, it may cut back on pharmaceutical errors, as long as it is loaded properly.

Doctors Use PMPs for Stethoscopes

iPodNext time you see your doctor sporting an iPod at work, do not think that she/he is slacking off. Neil Skjodt, of the University of Alberta, claims that even the most modern of stethoscopes do not have the purity or clarity of sound of MP3 players. He also mentioned that they have the added feature of being able to store recordings for future reference. While PMPs will surely not replace stethoscopes, we suspect that the technology will contribute to the future of medical care in finding such complications as heart murmurs.
