A wide range of equipment, techniques, therapies are in reach to everyone today, older times it was possible ONLY for high society people.
Innovative technologies (application of science and technology) are improving the quality of health care delivered and patient outcomes through earlier diagnosis, less invasive treatment options and reductions in hospital stays and rehabilitation times.
Medical equipmentis designed to aid in the diagnosis, monitoring or treatment of medical conditions. These devices are usually designed with rigorous safety standards. There are several basic types of this equipment: Diagnostic equipment includes medical imaging machines, used to aid in diagnosis. Examples are ultrasound and MRI machines, PET and CT scanners, and x-ray machines. Therapeutic equipment includes infusion pumps, medical lasers and LASIK surgical machines. Life support equipment is used to maintain a patient’s bodily function. These include medical ventilators, anesthetic machines, heart-lung machines, Ortho, ECMO, and dialysis machines. Medical monitors allow medical staff to measure a patient’s medical state. Monitors may measure patient vital signs and other parameters including ECG, EEG, blood pressure, and dissolved gases in the blood. Medical Laboratory equipmentautomates or helps analyze blood, urine and genes. Diagnostic Medical Equipment may also be used at home for certain purposes, e.g. for the control of diabetes mellitus. Durable medical equipment is a term of art used to describe any medical equipment used in the home to aid in a better quality of living.
A surgical instrument is a specially designed tool or device for performing specific actions of carrying out desired effects during a surgery or operation, such as modifying biological tissue, or to provide access for viewing it. Over time, many different kinds of surgical instruments and tools have been invented. Some are designed for general use in surgery, while others are designed for a specific procedure or surgery. There are several classes of surgical instruments: Clamps and occludes for blood vessels and other organs, Retractors, used to spread open skin, ribs and other tissue, Mechanical cutters (scalpels, lancets, drill bits, rasps, trocars, Ligasure, etc.), Sealing devices as surgical staplers, Measurement devices, such as rulers and calipers, etc.
An implant is a medical device manufactured to replace a missing biological structure, support a damaged biological structure, or enhance an existing biological structure. Medical implants are man-made devices, in contrast to a transplant, which is a transplanted biomedical tissue. The surface of implants that contact the body might be made of a biomedical material such as titanium, silicone or apatite depending on what is the most functional. In some cases implants contain electronics e.g. artificial pacemaker and cochlear implants. Some implants are bioactive, such as subcutaneous drug delivery devices in the form of implantable pills or drug-eluting stents.
Living in 21st century, people still not getting proper medical aid on time, there is technology, instruments, well trained people, improved techniques, marvelous brains , what not all in reach and possible. Then WHY WHO is not bothering about people who are in need of medical help. This is not secret well known to everyone; let’s see who steps forward for them.
