A lot of the latest technologies in medicine are geared towards helping medical professionals by providing data integration and predictive analysis. They can also provide insights into the patient’s condition which allows them to determine better treatments. Inhalers that are connected could save lives by reminding patients to take their medication. Additionally, devices such as AccuVein help doctors and nurses to find veins for injections by showing them where the blood flow is located on the skin’s surface. Other smart devices assist to make surgery safer, such as virtual reality systems that allows surgeons to practice procedures prior to introducing them to the patient.
Another 2022 innovation that improves patient outcomes is telemedicine. This technology lets doctors diagnose and treat patients remotely via the use of a video link. This can reduce the number of hospital visits a patient has to make. It also reduces waiting times for treatment as well as improve access to care.
Other medical innovations include wearables, which allow to monitor the heart rate of a patient, blood oxygen level. This technology is able to inform the doctor if the patient’s condition is getting worse. They can then take preventative measures and avoid needing more intensive treatment in the future. CRISPR and other techniques for editing genes are changing the way diseases are diagnosed through allowing scientists to change or correct DNA. This could be the solution to certain fatal diseases.
