How Technology Changed the Medical Industry

HOW TECHINOLOGY + CHANGED THE MEDICAL INDUSTRY? Mėdical technology is the application of devices, procedures, and knowledge for diagnosing and treating disease for the purpose of maintaining, promoting, and restoring wellness while improving the quality of life. 1816 Stethescope Invented. 1818 - First successful human blood transfusion 1842 First surgical operation using anesthesia with ether. 1852 Hypodermic syringe with plunger invented. 1855 Laryngoscope invented. US MED TECH COMPANIES BY SEGMENT 1879 First vaccine for cholera. Research and other 1895 First documented medical use of x-rays. 1899 First commercial bottle of aspirin sold. 1901 First ECG or EKG machine. equipment g6 Cardiovascular vascular 145 Orthopedics 85 Non disease specific 69 Other 40 Ophthalmic 36 Multiple 29 Wound Care 29 1920 Band-Aid invented. Respiratory 27 Oncology 24 Aesthetics 23 Neurology 23 Hematologyfrenal 21 Women's Health 18 Gastrointestinalv Dental 4 Ears, nose and throat 13 Urology/pelvic3 1922 - Insulin first used to treat diabetes. Non-imaging diagnostics 212 Therapeutic devices 586 1923 First vaccine for diptheria produced. 1924 First vaccine for tetanus produced. 1927 "Iron Lung" invented. Imaging 75 1928 Penicillin's antibacterial qualities discovered. 1943 First electron linear accel- erator designed for radia- tion therapy developed. 1945- First human hemodialysis machine developed. 1947 First stereotactic devices for human neurosurgery invented. 1948 Plastic contact lens devel- oped. 3 WAYS MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY HAS IMPROVED TREATMENT PROCESSES Faster Diagnosis Less Invasive Treatments Shorter Hospital Stays 1949 First implant of intraocu- lar lens. The results of many tests can now be delivered on the same day or the day after the tests are taken. Now most patients can undergo exploratory surgery and be back to their normal routine on the same day. Less invasive treatment methods and better recovery procedures combine to help you recover faster and return to the comfort of your home sooner. 1951 Tylenol approved by FDA 1953 Heart/lung bypass ma- chine first used in surgery 1955 Ultrasound first used on pregnant women i First polio vaccine used on children 1958 First cardiac pacemaker implanted. i. Artificial heart valve developed. 1959- First kidney transplant The survival curve has become increasingly flat in response to progressively lower mortality and increasingly vertical at the older ages. This is greatly due to medical technological advances. SURVIVAL RATE O 1900-1902 O 1949-1951 2002 100 with survival more than one year. 90 1962 First hip replacement using a metal head placed in a polyethylene acetabu- lar cup 1964 First vaccine for measles. i- First coronary bypass surgery. 1965: First portable defibrillator installed. 80 O 70 60 A 50 30 i First dedicated mammog- raphy unit developed. 1967 First human to human heart transplant. 20 19 1968 Amniocentesis first used to diagnose Down syn- drome in unborn fetus. 1972 CAT scan for brain invented. 25 30 35 40 45 50 55 60 65 AGE 5 10 15 20 70 75 80 85 90 95 100 1973 - CAT scan for whole body invented ADVANCES IN MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY 1975 - First recorded PET image 1977 - First image of a human in a whole body MRI scanner. Nexagon Healing Gel Berkeley Bionics' ELEGS iPhone Blood Pressure Monitor 1978 First "test tube" baby born. Berkeley Bionics' ELEGS are an outgrowth of military technology that allow seriously disabled people to stand and walk again. This is a huge boon to medicine as it makes it realistic to track Nexagon is a sort of gene therapy gel with the consistency of tooth-paste that accelerates the natural healing process to roughly 6 times the normal rate. First cochlear implant your blood pressure far more regularly, which gives doctors better information with which to diagnose conditions. surgery. 1982 First permanent artificial heart. i. First biotechnology drug approved by FDA Wireless Heart Monitors The STEM microscope Skin Cell 1983 Cyclosporine approved by FDA. Gun These wireless heart monitors. researched and created by Car- dioMEMS, relay arterial signals to doctors and greatly assist them in keeping track of all sorts of factors - making it an indis- pensable preventative tool. 1985- Implantable cardioverter defibrillator approved by FDA, The idea is to create a mixture of the patients' own skin stem cells and spray them onto a severe burn wound. The Skin Cell Gun can heal second degree burns completely, and within only a few days This device records neuron activ ity in real time. Medical profes sionals working with schizophre- nia, mental retardation, the 1987 First laser surgery on a human cornea. autism spectrum and other con- pecti ditions can harness the STEM microscope to better understand exactly how they operate. First laparoscopic chole- cystectomy using video technique. First cholesterol-lowering statin drug (Mevacor) approved by FDA. - First selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (Prozac) approved by FDA KNOW BEFORE YOU GO! Advancements in Health Record Technology Many hospitals are now offering Emergency Room wait times online, via text, and even on billboards. Sprint's MaM healthcare initiative offers doctersalthcare offers doctors new abilities, like 1989 - First proton-pump inhibi- tor (Prilosec) approved by FDA. GPS tracking for dementia and Alzheimer's patients. They also give doctors faster, more unifed access to patient data, such as records and test results The Current ER Wait Time C2 Mins 1992 - Prostate-specific antigen test approved by FDA 1995: Lasik eye surgery approved by FDA. Sprint There is even a way for patients to hold a place at the ER online by paying a $9-99 fee through the service InQuickER First protease inhibitor approved by FDA, usher- ing in the era of highly active antiretroviral therapy for HIV disease. 1996-- oly th hep becomes HELPFUL HEALTHCARE APPS the first mammal cloned from an adult cell.
