The Impact Of Technology In Medicine
The medical world has been one of many great discoveries. The first time people found out how some things in the human body worked. They could not satisfy their hunger for knowledge about the delicate and complicated functions of the human body. For thousands of years, people died of diseases and infections that had simple solutions. But the technology at that time was just not up to for the task of saving those lives.
Effects in the medicine world is amazing
Today we live in a different world, where if you get separated from your hand during an accident. You can get it re-attached with a good team of surgeons and a technologically advanced hospital. The way technology has had its effects in the medicine world is amazing, to say the least.
Surgeons today are in some way artists of the human body. In earlier centuries they were the bringers of bad news. Usually when a doctor was requested in the initial days of medicine, was for the acts of amputations of limbs on the body. Today we have surgeons performing plastic surgeries on everyone that can afford them. Doctors that can perform heart and other organ transplants and save lives of people that would have died just 50-100 years earlier.
These people have decided to study the art of the human body and have become perfect sculptors in their craft, but one thing is sure, no artist could perform works of art without his tools.
This is exactly where technology comes into play. The technological advancement in medicine has been nothing short of a miracle for many people. The tools used have been perfected for every little body part, where you can remove and re-attach body parts as easy as changing the motor in your car.
The future is certainly going to bring new discoveries, until then be grateful that in today’s day and age medicine is responsible for the additional 20-40 years’ humans got on their average life expectancy.
