There are many different kinds of medical equipment used by almost all hospitals. Here are a few different types.
Medical monitors – help doctors analyze a patient’s current state of health and include:
ECG: An EKG, also known as an EKG, measures the electrical activity of the heart and basically measures how well your heart is working. It is a painless test that shows how fast your heart is beating, whether your heart rate is constant or not, and how strong your heart rate is. It is used to diagnose heart problems such as arrhythmia, heart attack, and heart failure.
EEG: An EEG or electroencephalogram is a test that measures the triggering of neurons in the brain by recording electrical activity along the scalp. This test can show abnormalities in brain function due to causes such as epilepsy and coma.
Diagnostic Kit – This kit is used to help physicians diagnose a patient’s injury or illness.
MRI: An MRI, or MRI, is a test used by doctors to diagnose abnormalities in the body without surgery. It provides excellent contrast between the soft tissues of the body, thus facilitating problems. It can be used to take pictures of the brain, heart, muscle, bone, or cancer and is a painless procedure.
Ultrasound – An ultrasound or ultrasound is used to see the joints, tendons, muscles, and organs for abnormalities, and obstetric ultrasound is used exclusively during pregnancy to assess the health and growth of the baby.
X-ray machines: They have been used since their invention in 1895 to detect breaks or abnormalities in bones and teeth, and can also be used to detect tumors.
Survival Equipment – This equipment is used to maintain life, without which continuous life would be impossible.
CPB: A CPB, or cardiopulmonary bypass, is used to temporarily resume the function of the heart and lungs. It is commonly used during heart surgery, hypothermia, life support in endangered newborns, and people awaiting organ transplants.
Medical ventilator: this is what we all commonly associate with the term “life support”. It is a machine that mechanically moves air in and out of a patient’s lungs when they cannot breathe on their own. They are commonly used in emergency situations, intensive care, and long-term home care.
Meditherm – Thermal Imaging Systems are a line of thermal imaging devices for digitally displaying and storing thermal images. It consists of a high-performance thermal imaging camera and cabling, a laptop computer, and custom imaging software.
Hypothermia Machines take temperature control to the next degree by delivering precise temperatures to control the body’s metabolic functions. The hypothermia system offers an effective alternative to traditional techniques for cooling patients. This revolutionary system combines the Gentherm head wrap, patient vest, and lower body blanket for a non-invasive whole-body hypothermia system.
All of these computers and many more have the capacity to save and improve the quality of your life. While it can be assumed that these machines are still available, they can be expensive, both to purchase and to maintain.
