Chapter 14. Science to Save Life
Chapter 14. Science to Save Life. A healthy, strong and disease-free body is necessary for us to live. We cannot live in a normal state in spite of the utmost effort. Sometimes we are attacked with different diseases. For diseases, medical treatment is a must. For medical treatment overall diagnosis is essential. In recent times there is enough development in medical science. By applying different theories of science, new instruments have been developed to diagnose diseases. As a result, it has become easy to identify, cure and prevent health problems applying various techniques. The contribution of physics in the diagnosis of diseases is praiseworthy.
The massive limitation of ultrasonic waves is that it cannot penetrate hard bone. For this, sometimes the backward portion of the bone cannot be detected. Although according to the opinion of the World Health Organization (WHO) ultrasonography is not harmful they have advised that at the time of pregnancy it is best not to use the ultrasonography as far as it is possible.
Chapter 14. Science to Save Life
Apr 18, 2017 – Science creates a foundation upon which improvements in global health are built. It unlocks discoveries and fuels innovation, informs policies and programs, breaks down barriers, and ultimately advances better, healthier lives for all people. … In global health, science matters because of #scienceserves and science save.
Science expands our understanding, makes the impossible possible, and helps us build the future we want for all people. Science drives the work of our Global Health Technologies Coalition, so we wanted to take a step back to reflect on five ways science is transforming global health:
From a vaccine that has put us at the brink of eradicating polio to antiretroviral treatments that have dramatically extended the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS, science has generated new health technologies that have driven tremendous progress in global health. Thanks to investments in science and research, 82 new vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, and other lifesaving global health tools have been developed and introduced since 2000.
These tools include a new meningitis A vaccine—which has already saved 378,000 lives and prevented 673,000 new infections since 2010—and new child-friendly malaria drugs that have helped cut childhood malaria deaths by 65 percent since 2000. Science has also fueled a robust pipeline of over 670 global health technologies now in development poised to further build upon these gains.
Driving progress in global health is not just about developing tools that work; it’s about developing tools that work for the communities and contexts in which they are used. A diagnostic test won’t help us identify and control an emerging epidemic unless it can be administered on the spot in remote communities and deliver results quickly.
From using weather patterns to forecast the risk of insect-borne disease outbreaks, to employing genomics and evolutionary theory to predict how bacteria will become resistant to antibiotics, to advancing new hybrid systems that combine crowdsourced data with traditional disease surveillance, science is helping us better predict, detect, and track infectious disease outbreaks and other emerging health challenges. Early detection can make the difference between an outbreak becoming an epidemic and is critical to mounting an effective response.
teachingbd24.com is such a website where you would get all kinds of necessary information regarding educational notes, suggestions and questions’ patterns of school, college, and madrasahs. Particularly you will get here special notes of physics that will be immensely useful to both students and teachers. The builder of the website is Mr. Md. Shah Jamal Who has been serving for 30 years as an asst. Professor of BAF Shaheen College. He expects that this website will meet up all the needs of Bengali version learners /students. He has requested concerned both students and teachers to spread this website home and abroad.
