Transcript of Technology Advances in the Medical Field

Why are medical advances important to the world?
Thanks to the upgrade in technology in hospitals, patients have less time recovering from surgeries. Patients undergoing surgical procedures now have a recovery time from about 2 to 4 days. Before, it took about 4 weeks for patients to recover. Less time recovering leads to more time enjoying a healthy life.
People can live a more productive, independent, and healthier life
Technology Advances in the Medical Field
How do these technologies help patients today?
Advances in the Past Years
The plan of medical prototypes.
Scientist in Washington State University have created a hybrid material that has the same properties of a real bone with strength and flexibility.

With use of 3D printers, scientist could print structures of bones with the hybrid material.

These were made to replace a fracture bone while the real bone grows around the printed bone.

With the use of 3D printing, scientist can make any tissues and any organs can be grown once they have the right material.
Did you know?
What will be needed 5 or 10 years from now?
5 or 10 years later, we would need injections for cancers just like the flu. Also, we would find the virus of cold and make the cold shots and some special medicines for cold.
Individuals who were diagnosed with deadly diseases can look forward to a decent life.
What is being done now to improve these technologies?
These days, there are a lot of new medical technologies coming out. Examples of medical technologies.
Better technology leads to better medicine as well as more tests, drugs, and surgeries.
This is a prototype of the hybrid material printed out as a jaw.
3D Printed Bone
Checks the pulse rates and perfusion rates
The first face transplant was performed in France in 2005. In 2008, after a woman named Connie Cult was shot by her husband, she got a face transplant. She was the first person in the U.S.A to have one.

In April 2003, scientists completed the human genome project which identified single genes in a human body that can cause diseases, but also aids in making better treatments.
Scientists created stem cells, which have potential for curing diseases and repairing damaged tissue.
Bionic hands were created to make prosthetic limbs for people who needed to get amputated. Apps and technology can makes the prosthetic feel more real.
Better targeted cancer therapies were invented by killing only the deadly cells in a cancer victims body and not the good cells.
Laporoscopic is a new surgery used in which patients endure less pain, have fewer scars, and recover faster.
Medical advances are important to the world because it helps individuals live a better and happy life. Since some disease can quickly adapt to the chemicals that we use against them.

This technology can indicate the temperature. The sensor comes with it and just need to plug the sensor in the charging place
In 2006, the FDA approved Gardasil; this is a vaccine that is delivered three times over 6 months. It prevents four HPV strains that can cause genital warts. Due to recent studies though, the vaccine did not make a big difference in relation with HPV-related cancer victims.
In 2006, a medicine called Atripla. It combine three antiretroviral medication which helped cure HIV.
In 2003, only 75 cities in the U.S banned smoking at indoor workplaces, bars, and restaurants. In 2013, 560 cities passed smoke free laws and about 28 cities have cleaner settings and reduced asthma and heart attacks.
