The Southeastern med tech scene

Seven Southeastern U.S. life science and medical technology groups have joined forces to better promote and advocate for the region. The Southeastern Medical Device Association (SEMDA) (http://semda.net) formed an alliance with six state medical technology and life science advocacy groups: BioAlabama, Bio Florida, Georgia Bio, ncbio, Life Science Tennessee and SCBIO. "Industry and academic partners simply cannot invest enough in each individual state's bio advocacy organization-nor travel to each organization's annual event every single year," SEMDA executive director Jason Rupp said in a news release. "But they can come to SEMDA, where the entire region gathers every year bringing their leading investors, academic and industry partners including the best of their young, innovative, investable companies."

Video training for anesthesiologists

The American Society of Anesthesiologists and education firm CAE Healthcare launched the latest release in their interactive, screen-based simulation training product line Anesthesia SimSTAT. The new course, Anesthesia SimSTAT - Appendectomy, is designed to provide physician anesthesiologists with advanced training to manage challenging anesthetic emergencies in patients undergoing laparoscopic surgeries for acute appendicitis. With Anesthesia SimSTAT - Appendectomy, learners navigate in a 3-D, fully functioning virtual operating room and participate in a series of high-fidelity simulation scenarios with a realistic patient who responds appropriately to clinical interactions.

 Cybersecurity isn't optional

 Legacy medical devices are "a key vulnerability for hospitals and health systems" related to cybersecurity, and device "manufacturers must support end-users in providing a secure environment for safe patient care," the American Hospital Association told leaders of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce. "This support should include wrapping security precautions around these devices, adding security tools and auditing capabilities where possible, conducting regular updates and patching all software, and communicating security vulnerabilities quickly through consistent channels," AHA said in response to a committee request for information on how best to keep medical devices secure over their useful lifetimes. Among other comments, AHA said that the Food and Drug Administration must make clear that security measures to protect legacy devices are required, not optional. Click here for AHA's comments.
