Zero gravity surgery

  1. 1. INTRODUCTION …… <ul><li>True, exploring anything beyond the planet’s boundary does not anymore leave us surprised. </li></ul><ul><li>Zero-gravity surgery holds great promise for space exploration. </li></ul><ul><li>French doctors carried out the world's first ever operation on a human in zero gravity, using a specially adapted aircraft to simulate conditions in space. </li></ul>
  2. 2. SURGERY …. <ul><li>Surgery is the branch of medicine that deals with the physical manipulation of a bodily structure in order to diagnosis, prevent or cure an ailment. </li></ul><ul><li>Advances in these fields have transformed surgery from a risky &quot;art&quot; into a scientific discipline capable of treating many diseases and conditions. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Zero-gravity surgery a success!   <ul><li>To make its transition to the modern era, the art of surgery had to solve three major problems that effectively prevented surgery from progressing into modern science. These were: </li></ul><ul><li>Bleeding </li></ul><ul><li>Infection </li></ul><ul><li>Pain </li></ul>
  4. 4. ABOUT ZERO GRAVITY SURGERY IN ERA
  5. 5. How did the experiment simulate zero gravity?
  6. 6. How did the surgeons work? <ul><li>The three surgeons and two anesthetists used mountain-climbing gear to strap themselves to the walls of the plane. </li></ul><ul><li>The patient, who was chosen because he's a bungee jumper used to additional gravitational forces, received a local anesthetic and remained awake for the surgery. </li></ul>
  7. 8. What about bleeding? <ul><li>Liquids of any kind present a special challenge in zero gravity. </li></ul><ul><li>Liquids can't pool without gravity and will float away . </li></ul>
  8. 9. How did the team prepare? <ul><li>The medical team who performed this surgery trained in zero-gravity machines similar to the ones astronauts use, to get used to less gravity. </li></ul><ul><li>To practice the techniques, they performed zero gravity surgery on the artery in a rat's tail during a flight in October 2003. </li></ul>
  9. 10. Is This The First Time This Surgery Has Been Performed? <ul><li>NASA performed a similar experiment in underwater conditions in October, 2004, but it was performed on a surgical dummy, using remote instruments. </li></ul><ul><li>This is the first surgery ever to be completed on a human being by using a plane to induce null-gravity conditions. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  10. 11. Conclusion <ul><li>Space agencies hope to use these techniques when a permanent base is established on the moon, expected by 2020. </li></ul><ul><li>NASA has said it hopes to be able to remove kidney stones remotely. Because there is more bone re-absorption in null-gravity, astronauts have an increased risk of kidney stones. </li></ul>
  11. 12. The technology could also provide emergency care in remote areas such as missions to Earth's polar caps, or in areas isolated by earthquakes or other DISASTERS
