    Virtual Consultations in Healthcare (UK)

    Virtual Consultations in Healthcare (UK)

    A few years ago, when I was a university student in Southampton from Newcastle Upon Tyne, I was awaiting results from a biopsy I had a month before. I was given a follow up appointment date, which was to discuss the results from the procedure. This wasn't my first biopsy and I had been with the same urologist/consultant for two years; I believe we had managed to build a good rapport. Unfortunately, I had to travel home (Newcastle) tqo days before my appointment. This meant I could not attend the follow up appointment as planned. If you think getting a GP appointment is hard, getting an appointment with the urologist (at the time) was even harder! I called the urologist's secretary and asked if the face to face appointment could be changed to a telephone appointment. She wasn't sure if this was possible so I left the message with her, to hear back later that day. I got a call from the urologist (on the same day); he too informed me that he wasn't sure if it was 'allowed' to do the review over the phone and he would get back to me after confirming this. The next day, he called me and to my delight, whoever he had to confirm with had agreed to a telephone appointment.

    What Happens While You Wait at the Doctor's Office?

    As you wait in the doctor’s office and stare at the obligatory photographs of landscapes, have you ever wondered what’s going on while you wait? You might think that you’re simply waiting around because too many patients are scheduled to be seen, but the truth is that there is a lot more happening behind the scenes than you might realize.

    I Am a Mystery to Doctors​

    I Am a Mystery to Doctors​

    As a kid, I was never allergic to anything, and hardly in pain or seeing doctors. One day in May 2016, all of that changed. I found myself in the hospital with severe abdominal pain and zero clues as to what caused it. I had eaten cereal that morning and found myself in severe pain shortly after that lasted all day. I could barely move and felt nothing but that pain, which easily hit a 10 out 10 on the scale. My parents drove me to the hospital after school, where they found the only thing off was my inflammation levels, which were at 48 and should not have been above eight. They gave me an antibiotic to kill the inflammation and sent me home. In the next few days, the same pain kept coming anytime I ate or drank anything, even water. Anything I did physically even, left me in agony on the floor. My parents took me to the hospital every few months when it got worse to see if doctors could find anything wrong with me. Only, they never did. Doctors tried to say I had gastric problems, but none of the medicines or diets helped so that was ruled out. One emergency room doctor even tried to say it was psychosomatic, all in my head, but others said it was clear I had real pain.

    What Is Physiotherapy and Its Techniques?

    Physiotherapy techniques provide ample opportunities for the choice of methods of influence on the body. Modern physiotherapy has a rich arsenal of techniques, but in this area, bordering on alternative medicine, the scientific approach and the comprehensive consideration of all the circumstances and all the subtleties of treatment are extremely important.

    Position Sensors: The New Medical Device that Saves Lives

    Position Sensors: The New Medical Device that Saves Lives

    The prevalence of diseases and disorders in the world has been increasing over the years. Medical equipment must continually develop to address this worsening situation. Scientists continue to try to engineer equipment to provide better and more useful service to hospital patients. One of the innovations that these people introduced is the use of a position sensor. Position sensors come as small parts that permit measurement of position, be it absolute or relative. Usually these devices come as small components, but they are significant in engineering, and now in medicine. To this end, there are several uses of position sensors that help people’s lives. Position sensors can be extremely effective and helpful in the medical field. Although there is still research on it, it is pretty set in stone.

    Band-Aids Come in Different Colors to Match Skin Tone

    Band-Aids Come in Different Colors to Match Skin Tone

    Long ago, everybody had to buy the same color of Band-Aids. That's because they used to come in only one color. Johnson & Johnson manufactured only the soft pink item in 1920. The New Brunswick, New Jersey company has sold billions of the rose colored product worldwide over the years, with about 62 percent of all Band-Aid sales in the United States.

    End the Pain?

    End the Pain?

    We never really know what a situation feels like unless we’re dropped into it. We never truly understand what someone else is going through unless we are put through it. A disturbing thought nonetheless, but think of this: imagine being terminally ill with an unbearable pain tainting your final days. Your only respite is a drug that you know will only suppress the torment temporarily but never fully eradicate it.

    Starting a Medical Technology Company

    Starting a Medical Technology Company

    Starting a medical company is something that is exciting and also scary. It can be a lot of responsibility to be in charge of a company that is delivering products and services to people, especially if their life depends upon it. When customers or patients become unhappy or not satisfied with your service or product, it can become stressful and rocky. There are different methods and strategies that can be used to prevent this from happening as you build and grow your own business. Not all strategies are appropriate for every company but you get to choose what your company uses and how they employ different business techniques.
