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.

Re: Medical History

I must say that during my recent fight with cancer, the nurses were the heart of my care. They are the first line helpers to the people in need. Great nurses are important to the entire healing process. I agree with you that the equipment used makes their job easier for them and on the patient.

Re: Medical History

A good nurse that shows compassion and delivers good care is priceless! As for vaccines, two of the most important vaccine developments were the Smallpox vaccine and the Polio vaccine. Because of the Smallpox vaccine, given routinely in the U.S. until 1971, the disease was declared eradicated in 1977. The Salk polio vaccine, developed by Jonas Salk in 1952, and later the Sabin oral Polio vaccine developed in 1957, have contributed to Polio being nearly eradicated.
