YESA - Creating a Pipeline for STEMI
Ask Prof Ron 06 June 2014
Just a quick report back relating to the Speak to Prof Ron Project on MXit. During the initial phases the user base was confined largely to the SADC region but in recent months there has been a surge from a number of different countries across Africa and even into America, Europe and Asia. The number of countries now exceeds 60 and is growing. More importantly a total of over 9000 questions have been responded to with an average of 22.8 in 398 days. I will be reporting back to the academic community via a series of Journal articles in the coming months.
The latest development includes a post graduate student in the IT faculty from the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) working on the development of an automatic response system to initial questions. The intention is to allow the revised response system to interrogate the current database of questions and the serve up a few options. If the user is still not happy with the answers provided the system will then channel the questions to me directly. This will certainly improve the efficiency of the system by reducing the response time.

Microscopic Chip - Real-Time Video
Ready for your close-up? Well, I hope so, because this little guy is going to get a closer look at you than any other sensor before it. Created by scientist F. Levent Degertekin, this 1.5mm donut-shaped camera is small enough to make itself comfortable inside your arteries with some help from a catheter.
