Many digitalization of medical records of the latest medical technologies are aimed at assisting medical professionals to analyze data and integration. They also provide them with information into a patient’s condition, and help them identify better treatment options. For example connected inhalers aid patients to save lives by reminding them to take their medication. AccuVein for instance, helps doctors and nurses locate veins while injecting patients by displaying where blood flow is located on the skin’s surface. Other smart devices help to make surgery safer, including a virtual reality system which allows surgeons to practice procedures prior to introducing them to the patient.
Another 2022 technology that can improve the outcomes of patients is Telemedicine. This technology allows doctors to diagnose and treat patients remotely by using the use of a video link. This reduces the number of trips patients have to visit the hospital. It can also cut the waiting time for treatment and improve access to care.
Other medical innovations include wearables, which allow to monitor the heart rate of a patient, stress levels and blood oxygen level. This technology can notify doctors that a patient’s health is declining. They can then take preventative measures and prevent the need for more intensive treatment in the future. CRISPR and other gene-editing techniques have changed the way that diseases are diagnosed by allowing scientists fix or alter DNA. This could be the catalyst for cures for deadly illnesses.
