Smartphone system under development at Ben-Gurion University can evaluate apnea and other sleep disorders at home, without contact sensors

An audio-analysis technology developed in Israel for smart devices can assess sleep-wake disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) while the user is awake, at home and not hooked up to machines or sensors.

Link was stronger for common but difficult-to-treat type of heart failure

Getting regular exercise and staying slim can lower the risk for an especially hard-to-treat type of heart failure, new research shows.

This specific type of disease is called heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). Ejection fraction is the amount of blood that's pumped out of the heart. In many people with heart failure, the heart is so weak that it doesn't pump enough blood out of the heart to meet the
