An Internal Sinus Lift - 18 month followup
Here is an internal sinus lift I did sometime ago on the 9th of February 2009. The graft material in the sinus (collagen plug and ossifi) are clearly seen. The patient did not return for a follow up until today.
This is the post op iopa after close to a year and a half. One can see the new sinus floor and the bone above the implant.
Steelcase Reinvents the Hospital Cart for the Health Care Revolution
Steelcase Reinvents the Hospital Cart for the Health Care Revolution: "
Rolling through hospitals are the ubiquitous carts that nurses use for everything from calculating lab results to transporting IV bags. In the near future, these carts will do more than simply wheel supplies. They'll need to perform increasingly high-tech tasks, all while remaining easy for caregivers to move and clean, and still feel friendly to patients. Such was the challenge confronted by a new medical cart called Pocket, which debuted at this week's NeoCon show in Chicago.
Created by a health care company called Modo, Pocket was designed by a division of Steelcase called Nurture to address the changing needs of nurses and doctors. Especially with the speedy arrival of electronic medical record-keeping, known as EMR, caregivers will need a mobile, personal workspace with Internet access as often as they need a stethoscope. If the above video is to be believed, nurses and doctors will be using iPads, not clipboards, to check patient histories.

As craftsmen and artists that we all are , isn't this what we aim for ?
