Without the sterilization process established by Joseph Lister and the germ theory of disease by Robert Koch and Louis Pasteur, infectious diseases would have been easily spread far more quickly and also longer than they had before. These inventions made the way for a better hospital environment and cleaner operating

The Civil War was America’s bloodiest war. Soldiers were not only dying from battle itself, but from the daily practices the military had in place. Medical care and response was lacking organization resulting in many preventable deaths. In 1862 this all changed with the appointment of Medical Director Jonathan Letterman, who focused on how soldiers were being treated both on and off the battlefield. Jonathan Letterman was crucial to the Union’s victory because he advanced civil war medicine and made it more accessible hence why his gravestone describes a man “who brought order and efficiency into the Medical Service and who was the originator of modern methods of medical organization in armies" (Arlington National Cemetery).
Write about two advantages and two disadvantages of the imaging system. • Advantages 1. By using NM, doctors have higher chances of early detection of diseases and heath conditions which increase the percentage of healing (5 Advantages and Disadvantages of Nuclear Medicine, 2016). 2. Images that are produced by this system are detailed and accurate.
Tablets are also easier to carry from room to room. Thanks to technology, medicine is better than ever and with the installation of machines like x-rays, it helps the economy prosper by creating new jobs. One such job would include a biomedical
Scientific, and Medical advance have made it possible for more people to fight off diseases and bring back more of our troops from the war. Medical and scientific advance just keep getting more advance by the minute new discoveries are made, new vaccine are being developed to help save thousands of lives that could be under the risk of becoming infected, also new scientific transplants are being performed. Medical and scientific advances also help benefited the American economy during the postwar. A man that saved thousands of lives with his research and studies to develop a vaccine came about in the 1950’s. Dr.jonas Salk developed an effective vaccine to prevent polio, he may have also help save thousands of lives in the far future.
It was during this time that Occupational Therapy became more closely related to and aligned with organized medicine, thus creating a more “scientific approach” to this field study. It is also this organization that would be later known as the American Occupational Therapy of today. Following the Great Depression, however, it was difficult to find therapists due to low budgets and poor staffing clinics. World War I then came which necessitated the use of every valuable therapist possible. It was of this time that Occupational Therapists were called on to develop programs and treat the injured soldiers, of which there were too

In the past decades it has taken on many roles and played a big part of the medical field for people suffering from heavy metal poisoning. This treatment option was a major breakthrough for its time; the people that discovered how chelation therapy would help individuals with heavy metal poisoning would be like scientists finding a new way to decrease the death rate for cancer in today’s time. Even though I had never even heard of this type of therapy before, I found it very interesting and fun to learn about. It has most definitely opened my eyes in a whole new perspective. You never truly appreciate something until you break it apart and see what it is made up of on the inside I
In The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Rebecca Skloot presents the scientific progression of HeLa cells with study cases, such as the study of viruses and the development of the polio vaccine, in order to prove to the reader that HeLa was beneficial towards science and was not illegal in any ethical way. Polio is an infectious viral disease that affects the central nervous system. The year 1950, a year before Henrietta Lacks died, was the peak of the polio
