In recent years, due to the health emergency, scientific innovations in health have become part of everyday life, and are increasingly present in all medical areas. Despite its widespread use, the use of technologies continues to be the subject of study and constant research.
Among these innovations, without a doubt, the one that continues to constantly evolve is telemedicine. The use of ICTs (or communication technologies) for consultations and treatments, including apps, smart watches and more, was one of the safest ways to care for patients during the pandemic.
Although the use of this type of technology for routine operations such as consultations, control and more is widespread, work is still being done on its implementation for surgery, and this is what is known as telesurgery.
WHAT IS TELESURGERY AND WHAT IS IT FOR?
Telesurgery uses a mechanism of robotic arms and instruments that can be manipulated from a distance, either in adjoining rooms or even from another hospital, city or country. These types of procedures are used when the surgeon does not have access to the patient or to perform less invasive operations.
Although it can be confused with robotic surgery, it differs in the fact that telesurgery is the surgeon who manipulates all the tools. For its part, in robotic surgery the entire operation is performed automatically.
Even so, for telesurgery the “intelligent operating room” is necessary, which is equipped with a series of robots and interfaces that must be connected and integrated into the operating room in an ergonomic way, taking into account the type of procedure and how many people. that they are going to do it.
One of the advantages that this modality allows is that the instruments used are programmed and this allows greater precision in operations. Any variation in the programming is even detected electronically and notifies the team of the same. This can be compared to the fact of using a GPS to orient yourself, and which ultimately translates into more safety for the patient.
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IMPROVES TELESURGERY
The first transatlantic surgery took place in 2001 and was carried out by Frenchman Jacques Marescaux, who, while in New York, removed the gallbladder from a patient in Strasbourg. Since then, scientific advances have allowed this type of feat to become more and more common xxx porno.
Marescaux, president of the IRCAD surgery institute and the European Institute of Telesurgery, explained in an interview with Infobae that the use of Artificial Intelligence in surgery aims to reduce complications thanks to the use of surgical and patient data. This allows for more detailed monitoring and avoids risks.
The surgeon also hopes that there will be more support for doctors in the future. For example, he mentions that “machine learning” or automatic learning, health professionals could have early warning not to go ahead with a risky operation.
