New Medical Technology Could Make You Filthy Rich
If you live in the U.S., you enjoy excellent health care.
Yes, it’s very expensive, but by many measures it’s also the best in the world.
When it comes to getting treatment, there’s nowhere I’d rather be.
When my daughter was born earlier this year, my wife could count on the help of an experienced physician aided by multiple nurses.
And if there were any problems for her or our newborn baby, some of the best medical technology around was available to help them do their jobs better.
It isn’t always this way.
My own mother, born outside the U.S., didn’t have the luxury of a modern U.S. hospital. She was born at home in her own mother’s bed. Had there been a problem at birth, things could have turned out quite badly.
My wife’s mother didn’t have access in her country to the excellent medical technology and service we enjoy today. She died giving birth to my wife’s younger sister, who fortunately survived. Her death probably would not have happened in the United States.
Children die too. Today, more than 3 million newborns die every year in poor countries.
These are lives that will never be lived. What good they could have done for the world will never be realized. And the grief of their families has no price.
But new medical technology could greatly reduce this problem.
Neonatal deaths account for 41% of all deaths among children under the age of 5. Leading causes include low birth weight, infections, asphyxiation and birth trauma.
Eighty percent of these deaths could be prevented but resources are needed.
In Uganda, for example, neonatal intensive care units have 12 times more babies per nurse than what we have in the U.S. Moreover, the lack of personnel is exacerbated by a lack of equipment.
Overworked nurses aren’t well provided with the means to monitor newborns. Only 4% of them have access to a vital signs monitor. Nurses have to check vitals by hand. With the lack of staff, they aren’t able to adequately monitor newborn infants.
A wearable vital signs monitor is designed to help caregivers by providing constant feedback on four factors: pulse rate, respiration rate, blood oxygen saturation and body temperature.
The wearable monitor is designed to be affordable, easy to use and rugged, making it appropriate in tough environments. It doesn’t need IT infrastructure such as Wi-Fi, either, since it can stream wirelessly to a mobile device via Bluetooth.
The device can also communicate through a web interface to alert nurses and doctors.
And results can also be streamed to U.S. doctors for data tracking via the cloud, offering cheap yet effective alternatives to traditional monitors.
Not only could this device help make a huge impact on infant mortality abroad, but it also taps a huge and growing market.

On Tuesday, we got confirmation that Cronos Group (NASDAQ: CRON) was in investment talks with Altria.
Altria owns major tobacco brands like Marlboro and is seeking to diversify. For CRON holders this is the moment we’ve waited for since fist adding it to our watch list on March 6 at a price of $10.22.
