One Look Dictionary Search ( an on-line dictionary that I find useful, particularly for medical terms. You just type in the word that you need a definition for, and a list of links to various on-line general and medical dictionaries comes up.

The McMaster-Carr Web site ( is an on-line catalog for hardware and tools that can be used in the R&D lab for prototypes, or on the manufacturing floor. For example, if I need something quick, I can count on having items delivered the next day without having to make a trip to a store during the business day. 

The Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI; is a good resource for finding out what a particular regulatory standard is, but they do make you buy a full copy of the standard. Nevertheless, you can also read draft documents and get an overview of what a specific standard pertains to.

The Web site for the Cardiothoracic Surgery Network ( is a valuable resource for those working on new technologies in that particular area of the medical device industry. This on-line network caters to surgeons, but members of the professional community can get a membership I.D. to access the Web site.

Orbitz ( is one of the many on-line travel sites available. I have found it to be pretty easy to use, particularly for airfare. If you want, you can find an airline's best deal on a particular flight combination, then godirectly to that airline's Web site with those flight numbers to get the extra frequent flier miles. 

Estech Least Invasive Cardiac Surgery (Danville, CA; develops technologies that enable less-invasive surgical treatments for cardiac disease. Estech's patented products are routinely used for less-invasive surgical approaches for treatment of coronary artery disease, valvular disease, and congenital heart defects.
