As the days go by, everything is constantly changing with him. People are discovering new things. Making everyday life easier. Only a few hundred years ago from today. When hundreds of people would die from a very small disease. Gradually people have learned to prevent these diseases. Discovering various antidotes and medicines. As a result, the mortality rate of these diseases has come down to almost zero. But even then new diseases are appearing. There will be many changes in the days ahead that will take medical science much further.
Today we will tell you about some of the most amazing things in medical science that we may see in the years to come.
1. Human Head Transplant:
The most amazing thing that is going to happen in medical science this year is the human head transplant. So far we have heard about the transplantation of various organs including heart and kidney. But this is the first time that the whole head has been transferred directly from one body to another. Sergio Canavero, an Italian neurosurgeon, dared to perform this complex task. So far no animal has survived long after the head transplant.
Because even if everything in the body could be connected to the replaced head, the spinal cord could not be connected. But Sergio Canavero will take a slightly different path this time. With the help of a special blade he will complete this replacement process and in this case he will use a glue with a special organic material to grow the nerves of the spinal cord.
2. Medical 3D printing:
Many of us may know about 3D printers or 3D printing. Just as we print a variety of text on a computer with a normal paper printer, so the biotechnology industries are currently working on how to create body cells with a 3D printer. If this study succeeds, it will be possible to create different parts of the body in the near future with the help of 3D printers. Researchers have already been able to create body bones with this printer.
3. Artificial intelligence:
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is going to bring about unimaginable changes in the years to come. Nowadays, the artificial intelligence assistant of smartphones has made our life much easier. In the same way, in the days to come, this artificial intelligence will play a unique role in healthcare and medical science. Sick? Fever, colds or any minor illness? In the future, you may no longer need to see a doctor for these reasons. You can easily get health care through an artificial intelligence assistant sitting at home.
4. Laboratory organs:
If for some reason the lizard's tail falls off or is cut off, it slowly grows again. But is it not the case. However, there are some cells in our body that are constantly being destroyed, new ones are being created. Such as the outermost cells of our skin. The lining of our skin is completely removed once every two to four weeks. Then new cells grow again. In the case of the skin, however, once a part of the body is lost, it does not regenerate. But recently, scientists have been able to create organs such as ears, nose, etc. from body cells in the laboratory.
The whole organ is then gradually formed by creating many cells from one cell by developing the cell in the right environment. This prosthesis is then placed in the patient's body. As the prosthesis is made up of living cells, the veins and nervous system of the body gradually develop within the organ. As a result, this artificial organ became a part of the body.
5. Portable diagnostic device:
At present we can do blood sugar or diabetic test, blood pressure diagnosis etc. sitting at home. But even decades ago, we had to rush to doctors and to various diagnostic centers for these tests. At present we resort to various diagnostic centers for ECG, X-ray etc. But in the coming years we will not have to go out for all this. We can test these at home through portable devices. Recently researchers have been able to invent a portable ECG machine.
Also, a few years ago, Eugene Chan, a doctor and his team, developed a portable device that could diagnose hundreds of diseases with just one drop of blood. The device is so small that it can carry in your pocket. Many of these devices is going to come in the future.
