Transcript

  • 1. Emerging Technologies in Medicine By: Phillip Leicester - 981821 Sharon Lavery - 2810541 Nathan Hobson - 2659113 Sundarraj Arun Babu - 2554312
  • 2. Disclaimer... Please be aware that this presentation contains videos that illustrate graphical surgical procedures, if at any time you wish to leave the room please raise your hand.
  • 3. Introduction
    •  
    • Introduce emerging technologies
    •  
      •      Robotic Surgery
    •    
      •      Telemedicine
    •  
  • 4. Robotic Surgery - Advantages
    •  
      • Enhancse the skills of the surgeons
      •  
        • Higher success rates
      •  
        • Shortens recovery time
      •  
        • Minimises human error
      •  
        • Streamlining of Surgical procedures
  • 5. Improving the Medical Industry
      • Full Medical staff are still required
    •  
      • Eliminate malpractice suites
    •  
      • Fail-safe Application
    •  
      • Used in:
    •     
        • Urology
        • Cardiology
        • Gynaecology
        • General Surgical procedures
    •  
  • 6. Assisting Medical Staff
    •  
      • Focues on precision
    •  
      • Reduces fatigue of the surgeon
    •  
      • Eliminates hand tremor interference
    •  
      • 3D camera gives the surgeon a better view of the area:
    •  
    •          there-for better decision making techniques
    •  
    •  
  • 7. Assisting Patients
    •  
      • Less invasive surgery
    •  
      • Faster recovery time
    •  
      • Smaller incisions mean less blood loss
    •  
      • Less pain
    •  
      • Considerably cheaper than regular surgery
    •  
    •  
  • 8. Australia - At the fore-front of Robotic Surgery
      • American trained Australian Surgeons are on the front-line with this technology
    •  
    •  
      • Australian Doctors are world-class
    •  
    •  
      • This technology will only get better
    •  
    •  
  • 9. Telemedicine - Advantages
      • Deliver medical services over distance
    •  
      • Telecommunications is cheaper as medical costs rise
    •  
      • Uses Web Conferencing
    •  
      • Medical staff can share knowledge
    •  
      • Remote patients are more likely to get appropriate care  
    •  
      • Improves life quality for terminally ill patients
  • 10. Improving the Medical Industry
      • Enhances Global reach
    •  
      • Consultations with specialists without being in the same room
    •  
      • People in remote areas more likely to use this, rather than travel
    •  
      • Higher diagnostic success rates
  • 11. Assisting of Medical Staff
      • Centralises Specialists
      • Support primary care clinicians 
      • Assists in high density areas of care where doctors are in shortage
      • Knowledge readily available
      • Medical staff are able to reach out to more patients
  • 12. And Assisting Patients
      • Eliminates unnecessary travel
    •  
      • Specialist advice readily available allowing for more appropriate diagnosis
    •  
      • Less costly
    •  
      • Less invasive
    •  
      • Increases quality of life for terminally ill patients
  • 13. Australia - Uses
      • As with Robotic Surgery, Australia is also on the front-line with the technology of Telemedicine
    •  
      • Australia is a vast country, so its uses are clearly defined
    •  
      • More funding is needed, as initial outlay is expensive
    •  
      • Cost-effectiveness has been positive
    •  
      • Medicare need to way up the benefits
    •  
  • 14. Demonstration/Incorporation of these  Technologies   da Vinci Surgery - Robotic-Assisted http://www.davincisurgery.com/surgery/index.aspx     Video of robotic surgical prodecure and its benefits as a medical instrument for surgeons. 
  • 15. Demonstration/Incorporation of these Technologies Surgeon Experiences http:// www.davincisurgery.com/surgery/surgeon_perspectives.aspx     Video outlining a surgeon's view of the results provided by robotic surgery.   
  • 16. Demonstration/Incorporation of these Technologies   How to use telemedicine                     It's benefits and potential to the medical industry 
  • 17. Conclusion
      • Robotic surgery
        • Technology evolving over time
        • Replaced with futuristic techniques
        • Success rate
        • Interfacing with patients
        • Complex surgery completed quicker
        • Increase life expectancy
  • 18. Conclusion cont…
      • Telemedicine
        • Wide spread population
        • Workshops are being held
        • Lack of funding
        • Australia on the for-front
  • 19. Thank-you Are there any questions??
