medical laboratory equipment.
Life support equipment helps a patient to
maintain bodily function. Some of the life support equipment includes
anaesthetic machines; medical ventilators; ECMO, providing both respiratory and
cardiac support to a patient with severe heart and lung damage and heart-lung
machines, such as CPB or cardiopulmonary bypass that during surgery temporarily
takes the function of both heart and lungs.

medical device and are often used as a fashionable accessory. Stethoscope has
practically become doctors' symbol, but it was not invented until 1816. Many
other inventions, both those already mentioned and others such as mercury

equipment is used to help people in a number of different ways, therefore giving
people an opportunity to have longer, better lives. On the other hand, medicine
heavily relies on it, which is not always a good thing. Machines make fewer
mistakes than people Authentic

make a process easier, and fulfil their tasks faster. Yet again, without the
human factor a problem can be overlooked simply because the machine is
