ENTSafety.com announces the launch of the 2014 design of the ENTSafety System for tonsil, adenoid and other throat surgeries.

VERNON, N.J., Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ENTSafety.com is on a mission to eliminate potentially risky and improvised surgical practices often found in throat surgeries.  While risks of mortality and morbidity in tonsillectomy and other throat surgeries are lower than for many procedures, risks remain and can be reduced.  The ENTSafety System is a surgical device and disposables uniquely designed to reduce the risk of injuries and complications associated with tonsillectomies, adenoidectomies, laryngoscopies and other common throat surgeries. 

Our equipment, supplies and safety protocols are designed to help reduce the risk of post-tonsillectomy bleeds by improving surgeons' access to the throat, surgical efficiency and by stabilizing the patient's head during surgery.  Post-operative bleeds in tonsil surgery (post-tonsillar hemorrhages) can result when access is compromised by less than optimal angle or head stability.  The casual use of a mayo-style instrument stand to support mouth gags additionally can result in chipped and broken teeth, strained and dislocated jaws.  Fortunately, surgeons now have the option of implementing the ENTSafety System to reduce such risks.  ENTSafety supports the heightened attention being paid to safety procedures in throat surgeries as a consequence of public concern for Jahi McMath and her family. 

Surgeons have reported that their procedures are better organized and shorter in duration after incorporating the System.  Laryngoscopic throat surgeries can be significantly shorter and easier according to surgeons using the System.  Dr. Ramtin Kassir, a New York based ENT and cosmetic surgeon agrees, "The safety and efficiency of the ENTSafety System will undoubtedly become the standard of care."

For ten years, the designers of the ENTSafety System have been working to decrease risks in tonsil, adenoid, uvuloplasty and laryngoscopic throat surgeries.   

The ENTSafety System incorporates the input of hundreds of ENT surgeons seeking to improve on the historic procedures, instruments and equipment used in throat surgery.  Surgical facilities and hospitals may arrange trials of the hardware and purchases of disposable organizers.  Surgical facilities affiliated with the Kaiser Foundation, St. Josephs Health System, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Mayo Health System, Stony Brook University and Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary are among facilities which have adopted the ENT Safety System into their surgical procedures.  The System is compatible with most tonsillectomy techniques including plasma blade, coblation and electrocautery and all laryngoscopic chest supports.

15th Cloud Expo, which took place Nov. 4-6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, expanded the conference content of @ThingsExpo, Big Data Expo, and DevOps Summit to include two developer events. IBM held a Bluemix Developer Playground on November 5 and ElasticBox held a Hackathon on November 6. Both events took place on the expo floor. The Bluemix Developer Playground, for developers of all levels, highlighted the ease of use of Bluemix, its services and functionalit...
The 4th International DevOps Summit, co-located with16th International Cloud Expo – being held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY – announces that its Call for Papers is now open. Born out of proven success in agile development, cloud computing, and process automation, DevOps is a macro trend you cannot afford to miss. From showcase success stories from early adopters and web-scale businesses, DevOps is expanding to organizations of all sizes, including the world's large...
Some developers believe that monitoring is a function of the operations team. Some operations teams firmly believe that monitoring the systems they maintain is sufficient to run the business successfully. Most of them are wrong. The complexity of today's applications have gone far and beyond the capabilities of "traditional" system-level monitoring tools and approaches and requires much broader knowledge of business and applications as a whole. The goal of DevOps is to connect all aspects of app...
SAP is delivering break-through innovation combined with fantastic user experience powered by the market-leading in-memory technology, SAP HANA. In his General Session at 15th Cloud Expo, Thorsten Leiduck, VP ISVs & Digital Commerce, SAP, discussed how SAP and partners provide cloud and hybrid cloud solutions as well as real-time Big Data offerings that help companies of all sizes and industries run better. SAP launched an application challenge to award the most innovative SAP HANA and SAP HANA...
When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
Want to enable self-service provisioning of application environments in minutes that mirror production? Can you automatically provide rich data with code-level detail back to the developers when issues occur in production? In his session at DevOps Summit, David Tesar, Microsoft Technical Evangelist on Microsoft Azure and DevOps, will discuss how to accomplish this and more utilizing technologies such as Microsoft Azure, Visual Studio online, and Application Insights in this demo-heavy session.
DevOps is all about agility. However, you don't want to be on a high-speed bus to nowhere. The right DevOps approach controls velocity with a tight feedback loop that not only consists of operational data but also incorporates business context. With a business context in the decision making, the right business priorities are incorporated, which results in a higher value creation. In his session at DevOps Summit, Todd Rader, Solutions Architect at AppDynamics, discussed key monitoring techniques...
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA).

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
