FDA warns of security flaw in Hospira infusion pumps
31 Jul 2015 at 1:18pm
By Jim Finkle BOSTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Friday advised hospitals to stop using Hospira Inc's Symbiq infusion system, saying a security vulnerability could allow cyber attackers to take control of the system remotely. The agency issued the advisory some 10 days after the U.S. Department of Homeland Security warned of the vulnerability in the pump, which is used to deliver medications directly into the bloodstream of patients. The FDA and DHS cited research from independent cyber security expert Billy Rios, who found that remote attacks could be launched on patients by accessing a hospital's network.

Hillary Clinton given clean bill of health by her doctor
31 Jul 2015 at 12:06pm

By Steve Holland WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is healthy and "fit to serve" with no lingering effects from a 2012 concussion that caused a health scare when she was secretary of state, her personal physician said on Friday. The Clinton campaign released a statement from her doctor, Lisa Bardack of Mount Kisco, New York, that detailed the health status of Clinton, the front-runner to represent the Democratic Party in the November 2016 presidential election. One of the questions about the 67-year-old Clinton's health has been whether she had completely recovered from a concussion suffered when she fainted in December 2012 after contracting a stomach virus while traveling abroad and becoming dehydrated.

Hillary Clinton takes on Jeb Bush on racial equality issues
31 Jul 2015 at 9:33am

By Zachary Fagenson FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (Reuters) - Democrat Hillary Clinton sought to persuade African-Americans on Friday to resist any temptation to side with Republican Jeb Bush in the 2016 presidential race as they offered differing visions on how to tackle economic and racial inequality. The annual convention of the National Urban League marked the first same-stage appearance for Clinton, front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, and Bush, one of the leading candidates in the Republican race. Democrats have long counted on African Americans as a loyal voting bloc, whereas the Republican Party acknowledged after its loss in the 2012 presidential race that it needed to build support among minorities to win the presidency.

A smarter way to track your asthma symptoms
31 Jul 2015 at 8:42am

A new, free-to-download app from non-profit Allergy & Asthma Network could help people better monitor and understand how asthma affects them or their children and provide potentially valuable insights for healthcare professionals. Called the Asthma Storylines app and available for the iPhone, Android and the desktop, it can be used for tracking everything from frequency of specific symptoms and emotional impact, to setting up reminders for taking medication or for medical appointments. The idea of the app is to create a comprehensive picture of how asthma manifests itself in an individual over time and potentially identify triggers as much as patterns.
