  5. 5. Patient Monitoring Equipment<br />
  6. 6. Allows nurses to leave the room and gives them the freedom to perform other duties.<br />
  7. 7. Pacemakers and Life Support Systems<br />
  8. 8. Pacemakers<br />Computers to keep the heart beating.<br />Life Support Systems<br />Computers that look after and monitor patients who are in critical life conditions.<br />
  9. 9. Drug Research and Development<br />
  10. 10. Imaging Technology<br />
  11. 11. Remote Operative Technology<br />With the help of video phones<br />And remote technology, a<br />Surgeon would be able to <br />Perform a surgery, using robotics, from the other side of the world!<br />
  12. 12. Nanobots!!!<br />Nanobots are molecular scale robots that could be programmed to deliver medicine, destroy specific cells, or even just sit and wait for a problem to occur inside the body!<br />
  13. 13. Key-hole Surgery<br />Key-hole surgery are operations performed inside the body without highly invasive surgery. <br />Usually assisted by robotic arms and extenditures.<br />
  14. 14. DNA Sequencing<br />Helping to decode the DNA of people and creatures in order to be able to specifically describe the DNA code that causes genetic disease.<br />
