Medical Equipment - Development and History of Medical Equipment

In the doctor's office, hospital, or clinic, patients rarely consider the medical gear around them. Medical equipment is an integral component of identification, monitoring, and therapy. Even the simplest physical exam can often call for various high-tech medical gear.

In 15th century Europe, during and following the horrors of the bubonic plague, autopsies started to be performed in universities, and a crude form of 'scientific method' began to take hold in the minds of the educated. Practical surgery and anatomy studies started. These inquisitive medieval Europeans laid the foundation for modern mathematics. They also laid the foundation for the well known process of identifying a problem, developing a hypothesis, testing the hypothesis by most significantly observing and experimenting; translating the information and drawing a conclusion.

Medical equipment prior to as well as during the scientific revolution relies on classical Greek and Roman notions about mathematics, which weren't based on science in any way, but on philosophy and superstition. medical equipment suppliers Dubai was viewed as a balance of 4 ' internal 'humors' in the body. Ailments, both physical and psychological, were caused by an imbalance of humors. The perfect mind and body balanced all four humors, gracefully. To heal, doctors prescribed foods or procedures which would balance the fluids in the body. A few of the prescriptions seem to make sense-- fevers were treated with cold, dry temperature to fight the hot, wet over stimulation within the body. But if this failed, often another step was blood permitting. Unnecessary purging and enemas were also common cures, which could have helped some people, but also might have caused more problems than they solved. George Washington's departure has recently been attributed, not to the strep throat that he likely had as he expired, but into the bloodletting and mercury enema given to him to heal it.Not-quite-scientific medical cures are still available and used by many, even now.

Since the 15th century, Western science has focused on examining and observing the body, and has created resources to make this easier. X-ray imaging and now MRI apparatus are merely extensions of the first autopsies and anatomical studies, which strove to comprehend how the human body actually works. Exam accessories, tables, and other medical accessories are just the most recent versions of tools which have been used for centuries. Medical technologies and medical knowledge feed off of one another. Take for example hypertension. Although apparatus for measuring blood pressure have been around for more than 100 years, just in the past twenty years have the connections of blood pressure to disease, genetics, and lifestyle have been fully researched. As the significance of measuring blood pressure increased, new technologies have been researched to keep accurate measurements and records. It wasn't until the prevalence of automatic blood pressure monitors a correlation could be made between readings taken by a human and readings taken at a controlled, isolated surroundings. The medical equipment and the medical understanding then form a continuously twisting Gordian Knot, 1 side tightening, as the additional curricular, forth and back.
