The Evolution of Surgical Instruments Book Review:

The Evolution of Surgical Instruments is the first comprehensive work on the subject published in over sixty years and arguably the most important general history of surgical instruments ever published. The only prior work on the subject, C. J. S. Thompson's The History and Evolution of Surgical Instruments (1942) attempted to cover the entire history in only 113 pages. Elisabeth Bennion's Antique Medical Instruments (1979) concentrated chiefly upon the aesthetic aspects of medical and surgical instruments to 1870. James Edmonson's comprehensive history, American Surgical Instruments (1997), focused on instruments manufactured in the United States up to 1900.

A Text Book of Medical Instruments Book Review:

This Book Has Therefore Subdivided The Realm Of Medical Instruments Into The Same Sections Like A Text On Physiology And Introduces The Basic Early-Day Methods Well, Before Dealing With The Details Of Present-Day Instruments Currently In Use. Some Principles Of Diagnosis Are Also Included In Order That A New Researcher Could Understand The Requirements Of The Physician Rather Than Blindly Proceed In His Developments Using His Knowledge Of Circuity, Software And Methods Of Signal Processing. Further, Medical Diagnostic Practice Has Been Conservative In Preserving The Acumen The Physicians Have Imbided From Their Seniors. For Example, In The Ecg, The Very Same Trace Occupying Just 2 Mm-3 Mm With A Chart Paper Is The Vital (Qrs) Component In Diagnosis, Though, At Present, The Same Information Can Be Presented In A Much Better Time-Scale With Greater Detail. Because Ecg Diagnosis Is Still Based On This Standard Record, A Researcher Intending To Produce A New Algorithm For A Detection Of Typical Pathology (Automatically) Would Need To Know The Principles Of Pathological Detection From The Ecg In Current Use. That Is Why, The Book Has Spent Some Pages On Such Aspects As Well.After Covering The Several Instruments Under The Different Heads Of Physiology, The Later-Day Instruments Like The Ct Scanner, The Mri, Ultrasound And Lasers Are Included. These Deserve Typically Separate Volumes On Their Own, But Even Here, The Essentials Are Covered Both From The Medical And Technical Angles.Particular Importance Has Been Given To Safety Aspects As Has Been Widely Made Known Through Several Papers In The Ieee Magazines, In A Separate Chapter. A Chapter On Possible Further Developments And Another On Signal Processing Examples Have Been Included To The Advantage Of A Medical Reader Intending To Exploit The Technological Developments.A Final Chapter On The Use Of Computers For Medical Data Management And The Use Of The Web At Large Concludes The Book.In A Book Of This Kind, Meant To Be Of Use For The Student Who Gets Himself Introduced To Medical Instruments For The First Time, A Large Number Of Books, Journals And Manufacturers Material Had To Be Referred To. Today, The Subject Is Growing At A Very Fast Pace And Newer Methods In Surgery And Diagnostics Are Coming Up Every Day. The Book Could Cover Only Such Material As Are Current And It Is Up To The Reader To Keep Himself Abreast Of The Developments By Looking Into The Useful Journals For Example, The Ieee Issues. A Little Work Done By The Authors Own Biomedical And Engineering Group Has Been Included In The Chapter On New Developments.

Crucial Interventions An Illustrated Treatise on the Principles Practice of Nineteenth Century Surgery Book Review:

A beautifully illustrated look at the evolution of surgery, as revealed through rare technical illustrations, sketches, and oil paintings The nineteenth century saw major advances in the practice of surgery. In 1750, the anatomist John Hunter described it as “a humiliating spectacle of the futility of science”; yet, over the next 150 years the feared, practical men of medicine benefited from a revolution in scientific progress and the increased availability of instructional textbooks. Anesthesia and antisepsis were introduced. Newly established medical schools improved surgeons’ understanding of the human body. For the first time, surgical techniques were refined, illustrated in color, and disseminated on the printed page. Crucial Interventions follows this evolution, drawing from magnificent examples of rare surgical textbooks from the mid-nineteenth century. Graphic and sometimes unnerving yet beautifully rendered, these fascinating illustrations, acquired from the Wellcome Collection’s extensive archives, include step-by-step surgical techniques paired with depictions of medical instruments and depictions of operations in progress. Arranged for the layman (from head to toe) Crucial Interventions is a captivating look at the early history of one of the world’s most mysterious and macabre professions.

The Knife Man Book Review:

WINNER OF THE MEDICAL JOURNALISTS' OPEN BOOK AWARD 2005 Revered and feared in equal measure, John Hunter was the most famous surgeon of eighteenth-century London. Rich or poor, aristocrat or human freak, suffering Georgians knew that Hunter's skills might well save their lives but if he failed, their corpses could end up on his dissecting table, their bones and organs destined for display in his remarkable, macabre museum. Maverick medical pioneer, adored teacher, brilliant naturalist, Hunter was a key figure of the Enlightenment who transformed surgery, advanced biological understanding and even anticipated the evolutionary theories of Darwin. He provided inspiration both for Dr Jekyll and Dr Dolittle. But the extremes to which he went to pursue his scientific mission raised question marks then as now. John Hunter's extraordinary world comes to life in this remarkable, award-winning biography written by a wonderful new talent.

Sources of Medical Technology Book Review:

Evidence suggests that medical innovation is becoming increasingly dependent on interdisciplinary research and on the crossing of institutional boundaries. This volume focuses on the conditions governing the supply of new medical technologies and suggest that the boundaries between disciplines, institutions, and the private and public sectors have been redrawn and reshaped. Individual essays explore the nature, organization, and management of interdisciplinary R&D in medicine; the introduction into clinical practice of the laser, endoscopic innovations, cochlear implantation, cardiovascular imaging technologies, and synthetic insulin; the division of innovating labor in biotechnology; the government- industry-university interface; perspectives on industrial R&D management; and the growing intertwining of the public and proprietary in medical technology.
