In this video, Dr. Bertalan Mesko, host of The Medical Futurist YouTube channel, discusses the portable and innovative diagnostic tools that will shepherd us into a new medical era.
The traditional GP’s medical bag typically features, among other instruments, a stethoscope, a reflex hammer, a tongue depressor, specimen bottles, and so on.
But given our age’s escalating advances, a host of digital health technologies are now becoming available, for general practitioners to conduct their work more efficiently and make their patients the points-of-care.
The 21st-century GP medical bag could thus soon include:
- A hand-held ECG
- A blood pressure monitor
- Multi-diagnostic devices
- A digital stethoscope
- A portable ultrasound
- An otoscope
- A vision test
