Medicine is one of the most important industry for humanity, if not the most important and the development of it is really fast. There have been many diseases that were critical in the past and unfortunately ended many lives, but thanks to hard work of many scientists, doctors, and researchers, there have been numerous very important medical discoveries that made curing those critical diseases possible and some of them even become a piece of cake for the modern medicine.

Over the years, there has been some very important discoveries and innovations which changed the medicine forever, below are some of the most influential ones that saved a lot of lives and are still the core of medicine.

Vaccines

Still one of the core components of the medicine, vaccines first appeared in 1796 and it quickly becomes a very popular weapon against many diseases. The appearance of vaccines was the real deal in the 1800s as it allowed doctors to quickly and effectively combat a lot of deadly diseases including ones like smallpox virus, tuberculosis, cholera and rabies that were threatening the world for a long time.
Thanks to this discovery, one of the deadliest virus – smallpox were finally defeated and wiped out from the world.

Medical Thermometer

Probably every family has their own medical thermometer in and out times, it is a very basic medical device that doesn’t look to be any special, but there were times when it made a huge impact. Unfortunately, it isn’t confirmed when the exactly the first medical thermometer was invented but Gabriel Fahrenheit invented the mercury thermometer in 1714 which is still widely used in the 21st century.

Medical thermometer allowed doctors to measure the temperature of the body easily and effectively, making it possible to detect issues in the body and effectively solve them. Before that, it was a real trouble to understand why a patient may feel weak and what could be the reason for different symptoms.

Anesthesia

Can you imagine a hard, long, painful surgery going without an anesthesia? Nowadays it is unimaginable, but unfortunately, before 1846, it was a real thing. A medical surgery was a real hell for everyone and it was last, the worst decision after everything else. People hated surgeries and many patients agreed to die to avoid surgery as it was long, very painful, hell like experience that you can’t forget for the whole life. Of course, it was also very hard and unpleasant experience for doctors too, it is really hard to concentrate on such hard job when a lot of things is going around, including painful voices of patients.

Fortunately, in 1846 anesthesia started to appear and become a popular way to easily run surgeries. It allowed doctors to better do their jobs, it took a lot of pain, trouble, and fear away from patients and it allowed longer, more complex surgeries to take place. The appearance of anesthesia made surgeries a normal choice and saved a lot of lives.

Medical imagining and X-ray scans

Next one in our list is another game changer piece of technology that managed to take medicine to whole new levels and made it way faster, effective and easier. In 1846, the first ever X-ray scanner was created and the world’s first radiology department was opened, making a huge impact on how medicine was developed.

X-ray scanners allowed doctors to see through the human body and see many issues in the body that was very hard to detect without X-rays. This new technology was real game changer and it opened ways for similar discoveries.

The popularity of X-ray scanners leads to the creation of Ultrasound scanners which was another big improvement in medicine, allowing doctors to see more details in the body and discover more diseases that were bothering people. Ultrasound scanners use high-frequency sound waves to create a digital image of the body or body parts, this technology is effective to see things what normal X-ray scanners can’t detect.

Organ transplants

In 1954 medicine industry made another huge jump when first surgery was successful which transplanted a kidney. It was not the first try but it was only and first successful try which made it clear that it was actually possible to transplant organs. It quickly becomes the center of attention and leads to implantation of many organs, making the process available in most countries and that discoveries saved many lives.

Fortunately, many important medical discoveries made it possible to cure most of the deadly diseases that were incurable in the past, modern medicine is capable of nearly everything but it is still evolving and going further!

As the world continues to exist, develop, evolve and change, as we see new influential factors nearly every day, we also see new and more dangerous diseases and illnesses that are a huge threat to humanity, animals and plants, a huge threat to the whole world, the whole planet. To keep up with all of that, we need a development of medicine and for this reason, there are different kinds of medical researches, tests, experiments, different types of medical engineering…

All of that necessary processes require a lot of effort, hard work of many smart scientists, modern and advanced tech devices & facilities, a lot of time and of course, a lot of money. Still, without it, we would not have modern medicine which we have today, we would not have the ability to cure a lot of deadly diseases and probably we would not be able to survive all those centuries without a proper medical industry & development.

Today, one of the best-paid jobs are available in the medical industry, biomedical engineer’s salary is one of the highest in most countries as well as scientists are one of the highest paid professionals in the world and the reasons behind it are clear for everyone. Their job is very important for humans, animals, plants and for the whole earth itself. Their job is also one of the hardest and requires a lot of time, effort and dedication to see a success.

 All scientists, biomedical engineers, doctors and researchers who are working now or worked in the past are the ones who saved the world, who changed our lives and made deadly diseases & health issues possible to cure & fix. The process of biomedical research is hard, long, needs a lot of attention, wise decisions, and dedication, but in the end, you may get a life-changing discovery, or you may get nothing.

What is biomedical research and how it works

To get a better sense of how hard biomedical research actually is, how much effort it requires and why it still worth all of that hard work, first you need to know well what a biomedical research actually means, how it goes and why it is even needed.

Biomedical research is a very board area of science, it looks for different ways to cure diseases, solve health issues and prevent them from happening. Biomedical research is usually conducted in a laboratory and it uses different biotechnology techniques to run experiments and to get a suitable result. Discovery of new medicines, therapies and solutions is a hard task and requires wise experimentation and monitoring.

As many diseases have different effects while in a living body, there is often a need to monitor a living organism, experiment different medicines and therapies with it to find a suitable solution. For this reason, animals are often used as a test subject to ensure a potential cure is safe, has no critical side effects and is really effective against a disease.

Also, a continuous monitoring of a living body is often required to better learn and understand new diseases, understand how it reacts to different conditions, medicine and how it evolves in different environments.

Animals are most common test subjects, especially smaller animals as most diseases have similar effects on both – animal and human bodies. Also, they have a shorter life circle that makes it possible to monitor them in all lifespans in a short period of time. It is also easier to create a suitable environment for smaller animals than it would be in case of larger creatures like humans or big animals.

Most common test subjects in most countries are rats and mice as they are smaller, they are biologically quite similar to humans, they are easy to find, common in all countries & territories, have a short lifespan and are the host of many common diseases.

Each animal involved in tests and research is monitored for a long time before it is included in experiments, all data about the animal is collected and after that potentially effective solution for the animal’s disease is created. After that, the animal is the subject of experiments to see how medicine affects it, everything is still monitored for a long time. If the medicine was effective and suitable for use, then the test subject changes with a different animal and it all starts again – the final test subject is usually a human who agrees to it.

As there are different types of medical engineering, some of them are also working to find a cure for some diseases which are only common in the animals. In such cases, there is no need for human test subject participation.

Medicine is one of the most important industry for humanity, if not the most important and the development of it is really fast. There have been many diseases that were critical in the past and unfortunately ended many lives, but thanks to hard work of many scientists, doctors, and researchers, there have been numerous very important medical discoveries that made curing those critical diseases possible and some of them even become a piece of cake for the modern medicine.
