Most military battlefield casualties die before reaching a surgical hospital. Of those soldiers who might potentially survive, most die from uncontrolled bleeding. In some cases, there’s not much medics can do — a tourniquet won’t stop bleeding from a chest wound, and clotting treatments that require refrigerated or frozen blood products aren’t ...

High blood pressure is normally treated with drugs, but they often don’t work very well and in many cases patients stop responding to them. Renal denervation has been a promising technique, but recent news of Medtronic’s SYMPLICITY system failing to achieve a primary efficacy endpoint in a clinical trial put a lot of doubt about the technology. ...

Graphene is viewed as a kind of “miracle solution”: It is thin, transparent and has a tensile strength greater than that of steel. In addition, it conducts electricity better than copper. Since it comprises only a single layer of carbon atoms it is considered two-dimensional. In 2010 the scientists Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov were awarded ...
