CHAPTER V Clinical architecture


In the eight years since the publication of the third book in three volumes, called The Biomedical Engineering Handbook, the field of biomedical engineering has continued to grow and expand. As a result, the fourth edition has been substantially revised and expanded into four parts to reflect the state of knowledge and needs in this important discipline:

• Part I: Fundamentals of Biomedical Sciences

• Part II: Medical equipment and people skills

• Part III: Biomedical Evidence, Imaging and Computer Science

• Part IV: Molecular, cellular and tissue engineering This fourth edition in particular has been extensively revised and contains entirely new chapters.• Cellular architecture

• Design of drugs, delivery systems and devices

• Special treatment Including Theas well as a number of heavily updated units

• Tissue Engineering (fully adapted)

• Behavioral phenomena and biomimetic systems

• Industrial facilities

• Visualization

• Medicine Additionally, Part IV includes a chapter on ethics because of its increasing role in biomedical technology.

Almost all of the chapters in the first three books have been heavily revised. Therefore, this fourth edition provides an excellent summary of the knowledge and practices of biomedical researchers in the early 21st century. Therefore, it may be a good book for those interested not only in an overview of basic physiology but also in ways to make rapid progress in some areas of biological research. It is an excellent textbook for students in fields where traditional textbooks have not been developed and is suitable for use in biomechanics, biology, bioinstrumentation, medical imaging, etc. It can be used as a good overview of important areas of activity in any field of biological engineering, such as It could be a “bible” for the biomedical engineering profession, covering topics such as the historical perspective of biomedical engineering, the role of professional associations, ethical issues related to biomedical engineering, and the FDA.

Biotechnology is now important and useful in various fields. Biomedical engineers are involved in all aspects of the development of new medical technologies. They deal with the design, development and use of equipment and devices (pacemaker, lithotripsy, etc.). work as a member of the healthcare team (clinical medicine, medical informatics, rehabilitation engineering, etc.) who has clinical research and application skills (signal processing, artificial intelligence, etc.) and seeks new solutions to problems. We are faced with the complex health challenges facing our society. This book provides a central focus of knowledge in these disciplinary areas to meet the needs of a diverse group of biomedical engineers. But before presenting these details, it is important to give an overview of the development of the modern medical system and know the different activities that biologists carry out to help in the diagnosis and treatment of patients.

Evolution of modern medical systems Before 1900, medicine had little to offer ordinary people, as its resources consisted mostly of doctors, their schools, and the “little black bag.” “There appeared to be a general shortage of doctors, but there were reasons for this shortage other than the lack of available medical personnel. Although the cost of obtaining a medical education was relatively low, the demand for medical services was also very low, as many of the services provided by the physicians were also provided to experienced volunteers in the community. The home was often a place of treatment and rehabilitation, and relatives and neighbors provided a skilled and willing nursing staff. Children were delivered by midwives, and diseases that could not be treated with home remedies were left to do their normal, even deadly work. The difference between it and the modern medical system, where doctors and specialist nurses provide diagnosis and treatment services in hospitals, is striking. Changes in medical science began with rapid advances in practical science (e.g. This process of development was characterized by a variety of industrial fertilizers, creating an environment in which medical research could make great progress in the development of techniques for diagnosing and treating diseases. In 1903, Dutch physiologist Willem Einthoven designed the first electrical circuit to determine the electrical activity of the heart. He ushered in new eras in both cardiology and electrophysiology by applying discoveries in the natural sciences to the analysis of biological processes.

New discoveries in medical science were pursued as intermediaries in the chain. But the biggest innovation in clinical medicine was the development of X-rays. This ‘new type of radiation’, W.K. Roentgen described it in 1895 and opened the ‘inner man’ to medical research. Initially, x-rays were used to diagnose bone fractures and dislocations, and by then x-ray machines had become commonplace in many urban hospitals. Different radiology departments have been established and its influence spreads to other departments of the hospital. By the 1930s, x-ray imaging of almost all body systems became possible using barium salts and various radiopaque materials.X-ray technology provided doctors with a powerful tool that allowed them to accurately diagnose a variety of diseases and injuries for the first time. Additionally, since x-ray machines were difficult and expensive for doctors and clinics, they had to be installed in clinics or hospitals. Once there, X-ray technology enabled the hospital to transform from an inpatient facility to a medical center.

Many other important technological developments in medicine have made the integration of healthcare services necessary for economic reasons. However, hospitals remained challenging institutions, and with the introduction of sulfanilamide in the mid-1930s and penicillin in the early 1940s, patient infection, the main risk of hospital admission, was significantly reduced. With these new drugs in hand, surgeons can perform surgeries without morbidity and mortality due to infection.
