Transcript of Future of medicine

The future of Medicine... Alex S, Jaime, Pamela, Sarah and YuFei Genes..... How will these choices influence the future of medicine? On the other side of the path, it's a completely different world... How will technology influence medicine on the future? Ethics Economic factors How will surgery change in the future? Robotics will be the future of surgery.
The ARES robot will soon be clinically available. This is a robot you swallow, and will perform operations inside of you internally.
There are also prototypes to
change how open heart surgery
is performed - the cost of use
for this robot outweighs the problems
with the already outdated method. ABC.2012.Open Heart Surgery of the Future.http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/health/2011/10/28/open-heart-surgery-of-the-future/ [accessed 28/8/12]

Immunisations of the future will not be with needles but patches, so no more lollypops! On this patch there will be 100 dissoluble micro needles that you wont even feel. Things such as HIV/AID's and cancer may be in vaccinations in the future.

Nanotechnology is downsized science. It will help medicine in the future as it has done currently with sunscreen for example. Scientists in China have already used nanotechnology to come up with a way to fight cancer without chemotherapy, concealing drugs in the patients DNA.

Futurologists have already predicted this and even think we will succumb problems such as printing capillaries.

Environmental factors Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic

Arthur C. Clarke. choices plant growth Future....
what is it going to be like? The choices we make now will influence our future for the better or the worse choices Tissue engineering will make future medicine look as if it's come out of a science fiction movie. Global warming-not just an environmental problem, but also a health problem 2000 2010 2005 2002 March (cc) image by jantik on Flickr • The environment will become a disaster to people in developing countries. New diseases will also develop •Crops and plants that people in developing countries rely heavily on are becoming more dangerous to consume. population growth How will cultural factors influence the future of medicine? stem cell research Wars has had huge impacts on our society and its well being. war religions and beliefs are bound to have huge influence on future medicine as many newly developed techniques are contradictory to a religion's beliefs. How does religion affect medicine in the future? we are just starting to realize that genes can potentially be utilized to cure genetic diseases. will we have genetically modified children in the future where we are able to choose how our children will look and what characteristics they will have? In the future, we might be able to genetically alter the mosquitoes to eradicate malaria Malaria Scientists have already grown a pimping heart valve, the only trouble is how to implant it. If tissue engineering is still focused and funded in the future we may be able to print organs and grow back limbs by the end of this century. Doctors seemed to never consider about the environment we live in, which is in fact, a huge part in our health and well being. Lifestyle+genes+environment=risks in the future, we might have a "residential treatment" where you are required to live in a different place for a period of time to improve your health alternative medicine If the environment continues to worsen, our health will be hugely effected by our environment plant growth is declining Many plants are threatened to become extinct as conditions were predicted to worsen overtime Over the next 30 years, most of the world’s population growth will occur in the urban areas of poor countries More funding-more options Law: a big variable on the future of medicine. Even though many rules forbid certain medical practices, laws may change with the changing demand of medicine. medicare and insurance ensures that when we have a health problem, we do not need to worry about not having enough money to pay. however, this system does have its downside. economics is bound to boost the development of future medicine. However, not everyone will benefit from the increasing development of medicine, especially for people in developing countries. A process that involves the making of an embryo & killing it to harvest its stem cell. By any objective, scientific standard, the embryo qualifies as a member of the human race. From the moment of conception the embryo is an individual. The zygote is distinct from mother, father, and other living things, having her own unique genetic fingerprint.
Greg Koukl As we never know when wars might struck in the future, it is essential to be ready for it. After going back from wars, soldiers would experience what's called 'shell shock'; psychological illness that is hard to cure.

The technology of curing someone (mentally and physically) fast must be invented in the future. The irony of how Moslems are to not be in any contact with pig while scientists are trying to grow human organs in pigs.. Jehovah's Witness- no blood transfusion Should it be allowed? Perception of beauty has always been changing overtime, and with media telling what is perfect, plastic surgery becomes undeniably popular. Is society becoming too vain? Plastic surgery were used to fix those who are physically injured. But now, it is used for beauty purposes. Funds for more important research such as HIV/AIDS might go to research on new technologies on plastic surgery.

And what's so called "perfect beauty" might change in the future. The number of people doing cosmetic plastic surgery will increase for a number of reasons common diseases, such as skin cancer, malaria, respiratory diseases will increase in rate. vaccination Kiefer, D. 07 Oct 2011 NIH to examine how climate change may affect public health http://www.earthtimes.org/health/nih-examine-climate-change-affect-public-health/1483/(accessed on the 1/9/2012) Geography is the destiny in medicine.
