Technologies have progressed at an astounding pace. New technologies are becoming available in the medical field; that could help save a lot of lives.

In this post, we will shed light on six upcoming technologies that could reduce the loss of life on a global scale.

1. Nanorobots

Nanorobotics is a growing field that has the potential to impact many fields. Research is being undertaken to use nontechnology to cure various different diseases.

In the not so distant future, we could see nanorobots in the bloodstream that could help ward off diseases. The nanobots can enter the bloodstream and fight off diseases.

Studies are underway to research how to use nanobots to keep tissues oxygenated after a heart attack.  Researchers believe that we can create nanobots to perform complex diagnosis, remove platelets and dangerous cancer cells.

2. Drug Delivery Drones

Another promising lifesaving technology that we could see in the future is drug delivery drones. Some companies are working on drones that can be used to drop medications and vaccines in countries such as Rwanda, Somalia, and other areas where aid organizations face major challenges. The vaccine delivery drones could help save a lot of money and lives by delivering vaccines to remote areas of the world.

3. 3D Printed Organs

3D printers can fabricate just about anything. They have been used to print everything from food to airplane parts, which represents an epic advancement in manufacturing. Research is underway to use 3D printers for printing organs. Researchers have been successful in planting 3D printed tissue onto a rat. The technology presents great potential to treat diseases and save countless lives.

4. Augmented Reality (AR) Glasses

The Google Glass is being used by medical students to live-stream surgeries. These devices hold great potential in advanced patient care. In the future, we could see AR glasses being used to display electronic records of patients in real time. They can also guide emergency personnel to locate the exact GPS location of a victim.

5. Free Genome Sequencing

Genome sequencing can become cheaper than a blood test in the future. The cost of genome sequencing is decreasing making it easier for individuals to access their genome. This can result in getting medications and dosages that are customized to a person’s specific genomic code. The result will be less risk of adverse effects due to medications.

6. CPR and First Aid

A lot of advancement is being made in CPR and first aid delivery. Research is in progress to develop a device similar to an apple watch that can display the heart rate. In addition, one of the latest advancements is CPR is the use of carrying AED devices by drones. A Swedish Transportation Agency has manufactured AED drones that can arrive at an emergency situation within minutes thereby increasing the survival chances of victims.

Many medical technologies are expected to revolutionize the medical field. Due to these medical advancements, individuals will be able to live longer and healthier. The technological advancements in the medical field will result in improved physical health, and make medical treatment affordable and accessible for most people.
