In this paper, we propose a new approach for accessing the electronical health records (EHR), and we apply it to the cardiology medical specialty. Though the use of EHR improves the storage and access to the information in it regarding the previous health records in papers, it entails the risk of having the same problems of huge size and of becoming(More)

Chronic wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers and venous leg ulcers are common problems in people suffering from type 2 diabetes. These can cause pain, and nerve damage, eventually leading to foot or leg amputation. These types of wounds are very difficult to treat and sometimes take months or even years to heal because of many possible complications during(More)
Tissue engineering offers a promising strategy to restore injuries resulting from trauma, infection, tumor resection, or other diseases. In spite of significant progress, the field faces a significant bottleneck; the critical need to understand and exploit the interdependencies of tissue healing, angiogenesis, and inflammation. Inherently, the balance of(More)
In a longitudinal study, a sample of 16 first year medical students of Universidad de La Frontera medical school was selected initially. The sample was stratified in two groups according to the academic results obtained at the end of the first semester. The aim of the study was to determine if the exposure to a traditional teaching methodology during 5(More)
Everyday more hospitals develop their own Electronic Health Record (EHR) Systems to improve the accessibility to the information on it. There are some standards and proposals to homogenize the structure of these EHR, but they use to be so generic, that the final EHR structure has so many particularities that is different in each hospital. This situation has(More)
The printed Biomaterial Laboratory at UTEP does research a printable hydrogel which can have appropriate properties for tissue engineering of the skin. Skin is the largest organ in our body which protects us from the environment and pathogens. Skin can be affected by burns and also by diabetic foot ulcers. The current tissue engineered skin substitutes for(More)
