how is emerging technology influencing healthcare? and give an example.
all what i know is that they are basiclly new technologies and my example is about tissue engineering but the problem is that i don't know how it influences the healthcare!!!
so please please your help!! i NEED IT and thnks a lor
Do we have new treatment options?
consider an insulin pump, pacemakers, skin grafting, bypass surgery, tv cameras going into hearts for diagnosis,..
I have no idea what is included in any of the labs and other places where tissue engineering and such are studied ... clearly it's all very sophisticated, or I might be able to understand some of it!
However, I do appreciate being able to to to webmd.com or the iTriage app on my phone to get answers when I need them. One recent example was when I slipped on ice and fell backwards, hitting my head hard. After getting back indoors, the first thing I did was go into those two places on my phone and read everything I could find about concussions -- mostly because I wanted to know if I should head straight for an ER or what.
To have information like that readily available for the everyday person like me is absolutely priceless.
