He proved that injured excitable biological tissues generated direct electrical currents. The experiment proved that electricity travels though nerves causing muscular contractions. By 1878, Wilhelm von Ziemssen discovered that the heart accelerates when periodic pulses of current are applied to the chest until its beat coincided with the external stimulus. John Alexander McWilliam then proposed in 1889 that sudden death in human beings is due to the heart beating irregularly or at the wrong rate. In 1899 he published a paper demonstrating his thesis that small, regular electric pulses could treat ventricular fibrillation.
This oxygen-rich blood then enters the left atrium and is pumped into the left ventricle, which pumps blood through the aorta to all the organs and tissues of the body” (Blaser). That is the structure of the heart, and that so happens to be the most important organ in an organism’s body. The heart helps people get oxygen, keep the organs alive, and it keeps us alive. If this major organ fails and has problems, them that will be really bad. Although There are other major problems in the health world, cardiac problems should be prioritized by doctors.
Horace first practiced his medical skills after gapsinjeongbyeon, when Prince Min Young Ik was badly injured. Horace was able to cure him with his westen medicine. This influence Horace to introduced westen medicine to Koreans, which resulted in saving over many lives. Aside from medicine, Koreans were not familier with western culture, technology, or science. With the help of Horace, Koreans were able to bulid mines for gold, silver, and coal, develop an electric and steam railroad, and a waterway system.
Western medical ethics may be outlined to guidelines on the responsibility of doctors in olden days, such as early Christian teachings. In the 5th century, the first code of medical ethics was available. In the early modern period, the field is appreciative to Muslim medicine such as Ishaq ibn Ali al-Ruhawi (who wrote the first book dedicated to medical ethics) and Muhammad ibn Zakariya ar-Razi , Roman Catholic scholastic thinkers such as Thomas Aquinas and Jewish thinkers such as Maimonides. 1 Medical ethics appeared as a more self-conscious in the 18th and 19th centuries. Thomas Percival, a physician and author, created the first modern code in 1794 and made its expansion in 1803.
Medicine has started out poorly, as any other science, with low expertise and primitive instruments. Likewise, surgery did not differ much from medicine, yet its importance cannot be ignored due to its influential role in treating complicated physical diseases and injuries. Surgery is the art, practice, or work of treating diseases, injuries, or deformities by manual or operative procedures . Surgery can be traced back to 6500 B.C.E. where it was a fearful and dangerous decision to choose, and it has been developing ever since to an indispensable science.
“Lindbergh invented an ‘artificial heart’ between 1931 and 1935. He developed it for Alexis Carrel, a French surgeon and biologist whose research included experiments in keeping organs alive outside the body. Lindbergh’s device could pump the substances necessary for life throughout the tissues of an organ” (Ferrara). This is relevant to Joseph Campbell’s criteria that states that a hero is one who gives one’s self up to something bigger. By inventing an artificial heart and making great advances in the medical field, he clearly devoted his life to something that not only benefits a small group of people, but society as a whole.
Harvey William Harvey’s seminal work “On the Motion on the Heart and Blood in Animals” initiated modern medicine. Harvey’s arguments were detailed readily verifiable and though they did endure a fair bit of criticism when released, in most areas, they were accepted within his lifetime. Once his simple notion of the circulation of blood was carefully described others were able to see and understand its validity themselves. I will argue that William Harvey’s theory which used inductive reasoning to show, with experiments, how blood flowed from veins to arteries through the heart and deduced the existence of capillaries to return blood from arteries to veins. One of the main understandings of the day, proposed by Galen of Pergamon nearly 1500 years earlier, was that blood was a resource that was produced in the liver and consumed in the tissues and the brain.
How and Who Influenced/ Discovered Medicine In the Medieval Era, the medical knowledge from Greece and Rome was replaced by estimation and folklore. But in the 14th Century, many medical universities adapted and developed the knowledge of medicine. Many debates were taken by the students, judging the theories of Galen. The Church then agreed with Galen’s theories and prohibited further investigation with Galen. It was difficult to learn as the Church stopped dissection of human bodies which led to many mistakes and errors due to lack of knowledge.
I noticed that these documents are highly important to performing medical tasks and procedures that allow patients to feel comfortable and in the blood transfusion case, to live. There was similarities and differences between the two documents that made the understanding of medical research so complex and distinct. The rhetorical analysis between the two can be valued as mostly similar, with the context of them to be
The heart helps people get oxygen, keep the organs alive, and it keeps them alive. If this major organ fails and has problems, then that will be critical. Although There are other major problems in the health world, cardiac problems should be prioritized by doctors. In history, it was virtually impossible to touch a heart,
