COPD burden in the 7MM to increase by 13.3% over the next decade, says GlobalData

The total prevalent cases of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in the seven major markets (7MM*) is expected to increase from 59.3 million cases in 2018 to 67.2 million in 2028, at an annual growth rate (AGR) of 1.33%, according to GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

The company’s latest report, ‘Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: Epidemiology Forecast to 2028,’ provides an overview of the risk factors and historical trends for COPD in the 7MM for people ages ≥35 years.

'Very active' flu season continues as a second wave could be coming

The 2019-20 flu season continues to be more active than normal, with Influenza B the leading type of virus among patients nationwide. But patient visits were down compared to the previous week in much of the country, indicating the early Influenza B wave may reach a peak and start declining in the coming weeks, according to researchers at the Biocomplexity Institute at the University of Virginia who work in a research partnership with AccuWeather.

However, those researchers expect that eventually an Influenza A wave will arrive and cause considerable infections later in the season.

The percentage of visits for influenza-like illnesses (ILI) dropped over the last week, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Nationwide, 3.2 percent of patient visits reported through the U.S. Outpatient Influenza-like Illness Surveillance Network (ILINet) were due to influenz

HealthWell Foundation Now Offers a Financial Lifeline to Medicare Patients Living with Chronic Heart Failure

The HealthWell Foundation®, an independent non-profit that provides a financial lifeline for inadequately insured Americans, has opened a new fund to provide copayment and premium assistance to Medicare patients living with chronic heart failure. HealthWell will provide up to $2,500 in financial assistance for a 12-month grant to eligible patients who have annual household incomes up to 500 percent of the federal poverty level.

Many people with chronic heart failure lead full and enjoyable lives when managing their c

Withings Launches ScanWatch, the First Hybrid Smartwatch to Combine Medical Grade Electrocardiogram and Sleep Apnea Detection

Withings, pioneer of the digital health movement and connected analog watches, unveils ScanWatch, the world's first clinically validated hybrid smartwatch to detect both risk of arrhythmia (AFib) and sleep apnea – all from the wrist! Developed by cardiologists and sleep experts, it is Withings’ most medically advanced wearable to date, helping users and their physicians monitor overall health with a smartwatch that identifies highly prevalent, yet largely underdiagnosed cardiovascular and sleep issues early.

“ScanWatch is our most ambitious medical tracker and purposely designed to detect the early presence of AFib and sleep apnea - two related issues that are extremely common yet largely undiagnosed, despite their known impact on multiple health conditions,” said Mathieu Letombe, CEO of Withings. “Worn throughout the day and night, ScanWatch provides an early warning system, collecting
