TopMedTalk | Innovators in Anesthesia

This piece tells the story of two different innovators in the field of an anesthesia. The first is, The Pediatric Device for Induction of Anesthesia (PeDIA), a mask-free anesthesia delivery system designed for kids. The second is the Error Recovery and Mitigation Aide (ERMA), a reworking of the traditional needle box whereby a clear reservoir is inserted between the re-entry proof top and opaque terminal disposal portion, allowing practitioners to have visualization of all the syringes and vials used during the course of a procedure. At the end of a single procedure, a trap door in the bottom of the reservoir is released to allow those sequestered vials and syringes to drop into the bottom of the needle box for terminal disposal. This allows providers to recognise, check and confirm possible errors in a timely fashion.

Also during this piece there is a wide ranging and fascinating discussion about patents and patenting. How does the process work, how can you patent your ideas and how does the advent of block chain technology potentially change this forever?
