Infographic: How engineers are helping doctors and health care communicators

Mobile traffic and medical device growth are booming, and the surge is important for communicators.

Electrical engineers who have helped develop CT scans, defibrillators and monitoring devices for chronic health conditions are also focused on small, wireless technology for clinicians.

Communicators can get ready for groundbreaking equipment and monitoring changes, which make for great content and fodder. For example, electrical engineers are working on:

  • A virtual stethoscope (not a cumbersome electrocardiogram machine) may soon offer waveform graphics and audio of a patient’s heart activity on a PDA.

  • RFID sensor technology badges that track time spent on patient care versus locating lost equipment.

  • Electronic underwear that sends gentle electrical charges every 10 minutes to improve blood flow and stimulate cells. Experts predict the “smart e-pants” could save $ 12 billion a year in health care costs in the U.S. alone. How? The garb could reduce or eliminate 60,000 deaths from bed sore infections.

You don’t have to be Bill Nye, the Science Guy, to be impressed with the technology featured in this infographic. Take a look:
