Drawing From A Lifetime Of Service, Veterans Use Apple Technology To Revolutionize Trauma Medicine, by Apple

As the team assembles and prepares for the patient’s arrival, there’s a new tool in their kit. It’s a cutting-edge app called T6 that runs exclusively on iPad and leverages data to give medical professionals real-time feedback as they administer lifesaving trauma care.

Nathan Christopherson is vice president of surgery for Northwell Health, New York State’s largest healthcare provider, and he oversees all of its trauma centers, including Cohen Children’s Medical Center. He’s also a veteran, having served as a combat medic in the Army for more than a decade, and it’s that experience that led him to introduce T6 into Northwell’s emergency care — the first civilian healthcare provider in the US to do so.

I was trying out tab groups and pinned tabs over at Safari on macOS this past week. (No, these are two separate features that doesn't overlap.) And that's when I encountered a Safari bug: all the titles in the tabs in the tab bar disappeared, and the chrome stopped working. For example, if I cmd-f to do a search, the search box does not appear.

So I've now backed off from trying tab groups and pinned tabs for now. Back to just plain web browser for me.


I am using three different web browsers on my Mac. Safari for all my personal stuff, Firefox for all my work stuff, and Microsoft Edge for all the... well... Microsoft stuff. That last choice of browser is to make sure Microsft has no excuse for the web versions of Outlook and Sharepoint and OneDrive not working well. (Unfortunately, Teams on the web is even more horrible than Teams on macOS.)


Thanks for reading.
