King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health science is the first public university in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Middle East region specialized in health science. Its headquarters is in the main campus in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. It has two other campuses both in Jeddah and Al-Ahsa. All of the campuses are located inside the parameters of King Abdulaziz Medical cities, and are overseen by the Saudi National Guard Health Affairs. Wikipedia.

The medication management system is divided into hospital server, pharmacy server, and patient mobile device. The hospital server and pharmacy server contain all patient active and inactive medication profiles. The hospital software runs on the hospital server, which is an intermediary between the pharmacy software (PMRPharmacy Medication Records) and the patient software. The platform can communicate with different types of pharmacy data bases and software, and at the same time can be used as a type of an encoding and decoding platform to convert from one pharmacy database to anther automatically and eliminate the long tedious effort done by humans to do it manually.

The pneumatic system for intussusception treatment, i.e., invagination of a segment of the intestine into an adjacent segment, includes a pressurized gas supply connected to a series of filters, valves, regulators, and sensors connected to a rectal insertion tube to introduce gas at moderate pressure into the intestine of the patient. A computerized control and monitoring subsystem is included. The system preferably includes a heating system to warm the gas as desired. The system also preferably includes an exhaust portion to relieve internal intestinal pressure as required or desired. The exhaust portion of the system preferably includes a filter to absorb undesirable fecal odors that accompany the exhausted gas. At least the rectal insertion tube and the odor filter may be separable from the remainder of the system for convenient disposal. An alarm may be provided to alert the doctor or medical professional of conditions other than normal.

The composition for management of periodontal diseases includes a gel matrix having a polymer system and a plurality of microspheres dispersed in the polymer system. The polymer system contains about one-half a dose of medicament, while the microspheres contain the remainder. Upon administration of the composition into the periodontal cavity, the medicament in the polymer system provides an initial therapeutic benefit, while the remainder of the medication is released over time via degradation of the microspheres. This biphasic pattern of medicament delivery provides increased efficacy of the medicament through sustained delivery of the same.

The releasable torque device obviates the need for removal of the wire introducer in order to torque or manipulate a vascular or other guide wire and/or catheter in a medical procedure, and further obviates the need to remove the torque device for wire and/or catheter introduction. The device may include a base cylinder and an inflation cylinder defining a variable fluid volume therebetween. As the inflation cylinder is pushed toward the base cylinder, the fluid is forced through a port in the inner wall of the inflation cylinder and between a tubular inner cylinder and an inflatable guide wire grip within the inner cylinder to squeeze the grip onto the guide wire passing axially therethrough. Alternatively, the device only has a central tube and an inflatable guide wire grip therein, using a remotely disposed fluid pump and reservoir supplying fluid to the tube and guide wire grip.

The thermometer using differential temperature measurements utilizes a pair of adjacent temperature sensors in order to measure the temperature of a common surface over a pre-selected period of time. The thermometer includes a housing and first and second thermistors mounted adjacent one another on the housing. The first and second thermistors are positioned against the surface, which can be a body part (for oral, rectal or axial body temperature measurements) or can be any other desired surface for which a spot check temperature reading is desired. A programmable current source pre-heats the second thermistor to a pre-selected temperature, while the first thermistor is initially at room temperature. A controller inside the housing causes both the first and second thermistors to take instantaneous temperature measurements of the surface at two successive times. The controller linearizes the measurements to predict the temperature of the surface, which is then displayed to the user.
