The Bleeding Edge - S3 E7 The Compassionate Achiever Podcast

    • Education

Do you want to know something you probably don’t know but should? Over 95% of medical devices (from birth control and heart devices to knee and shoulder replacements) in the United States are not tested or regulated before they are implanted in Americans. An American first grader goes through more testing than over 95% of American medical devices and it is having serious health consequences across the country. The podcast crew is joined by a leader (and compassionate achiever) in America’s effort to regulate medical devices, Angie Firmalino of ASHESnonprofit (https://www.ashesnonprofit.com). This episode was inspired by the Netflix documentary, The Bleeding Edge. See http://www.medicaldeviceproblems.com for more information about problems with medical devices.
