Invention helps to set proper doses of antwristbands nowibiotics

Vacation Destination: Memphis, Tennessee I like to visit with my friends and I like to cook and when I put these two things together it is called a party. I have never thought of myself as an event planner but I do love to plan parties at my home and I have become quite efficient at it. Trust me I am no Martha Stewart and lets face it most of us are not. The important thing is do what you love. If you want a theme party do it, and if you want an intimate dinner then have at it. You are in the driver"s seat. The important piece is to plan. Never be afraid of too much planning but do not let the planning take away the fun. Stay flexible. Music travels to California must be during the mid of April. This is because the month of April is when the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival takes place. It is a festival wristbands that is conducted every year, and a lot of music lovers pool in during the month of April to be a part of this event. The duration of this festival wristbands is three days. Yes, three days is a very short time, but still there are such crazy music lovers for whom every second of their favorite band counts. Rock, hip hop, indie, pop and so on are the genres that you get to enjoy if you are successful in journeying to California during the month of April. This is about the big picture of creating a healthy, happy lifestyle here. It"s not always going sport wristbands to look exactly the way we think it should. As long as it"s healthy overall, then cool it with the stress and guilt. That kind of thinking will create its own negative health consequences. WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO HAVE YOUR EVENT? Location is usually the area of the least control. Some locations require a reservation a year in advance, so you can not wait until the last minute. Researching locations 18 - 24 months in advance may help relieve a lot of stress early on. I you are having the party at your house then you just need to deal with the family. So weigh your odds early on! If you are like most people buying event wristbands (or armbands or bracelets) for an event, you want to be sure they"ll help you let the right people into a venue and that they"ll keep the wrong people out. WHO ARE YOU GOING TO INVITE? Your guest list will be the determining factor in almost every decision that you have to make while planning your party. If you have to rent a location for your event you will need one large enough to hold all of your guests. The number of people you have will determine the amount of food, how many chairs and the number of gift bags to prepare if that will be part of you event. So sit down and make a list of potential guests. Wherever your Labor Day weekend plans take you, be careful on the road. Holiday traffic will be heavy and there"s construction around town and across the state.

Chinese scientists have developed a prototype instrument to quickly determine the level of antibiotic resistance in cells infecting a patient, thereby allowing more precise administration of the drugs.

The device was unveiled recently by the Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, which said it was the first of its kind in the world.

It can determine the level of resistance in sample cells within three hours without the need to grow more cells in a lab. Existing methods typically take 24 to 48 hours, said Ma Bo, a research fellow at the institute.

Widespread antimicrobial resistance and the associated rise of superbugs is a major public health threat. One leading cause is the misuse or overuse of antibiotics due to incorrect assessments of how much is needed.

"Traditionally, doctors may use high doses of antibiotics to save a patient"s life … because they cannot wait long for the results," Ma said. "With the help of this new instrument, doctors will be advised how much antibiotic to use for different patients, and will avoid misuse."

The institute"s announcement followed the World Health Organization"s World Antibiotic Awareness Week, which ran from Nov 12 to 18. The WHO"s annual campaign aims to increase global awareness of antibiotic resistance and to encourage best practices among the public, healthcare workers and policymakers to avoid the further emergence and spread of resistant microbes.

According to the Qingdao institute, the instrument has been validated experimentally using clinical samples from urology departments at domestic hospitals.

Zhou Hongwei, head of the Department of Laboratory Medicine at Zhujiang Hospital of Southern Medical University, is excited about the new device.

"Novel methods and instruments for rapid antimicrobial resistance tests are urgently needed in clinical microbiology labs, and inventions like this can potentially lead to a paradigm shift in microbial diagnosis."

Xiao Yonghong, deputy director of the State Key Laboratory for Diagnosis and Treatment of Infectious Diseases at Zhejiang University, said it is a step toward responsible and personalized use of antibiotics.

"I hope researchers will accelerate its clinical validation," Xiao said. "But translating scientific discoveries to the bedside can require significant investments and additional efforts."
