Post Medical History

I recently conducted research about how nursing, medical technology, and medical instruments, and vaccines in the 18th century have benefited our modern medical world tremendously. I discussed how Florence Nightengale stated that caring and nursing for a patient will help them get better faster. I included this in my paper by stating how even still today, nurses are so very important, because they focus on the emotional side of the patients. i discussed how different technologies and instruments that were invented in the 18th century have helped our medical world now grow. I discussed things as the stethoscope, xray, blood transfusions, and also discussed vaccines. I stated that if it would not have been for some of the vaccines developed in the 18th century, doctors could not focus on the big diseases such as cancer today, because they would still be worrying about small diseases such as the common cold or flu.
Feel free to add anything you may have thought I missed or comment.
