Hospital engineering - an essential part of modern medicine
Medical devices and procedures
Some of the devices most commonly used in the clinic are the dialysis machine, with which the kidney patients’ blood is cleaned, and the pacemaker, which, after being inserted into the human chest, improves the lives and health of those with heart disease. Other devices used most often in the clinic are infusion pumps, through which patient care with vital medicines or health-promoting nutrient solutions takes place, and large machines like the Heart-Lung Machine, which keeps intensive care patients alive during comas. Artificial organs, which are developed in special laboratories and implanted in patients to save lives, prostheses, which support the mobility of disabled patients, and also visual aids and surgical instruments are used daily by physicians. Also, dental implants, which are becoming more frequently requested by dental patients, are manufactured using medical technology. Small- and large-scale medical equipment and procedures help you to detect and treat diseases, increase patients’ quality of life, and sometimes have an aesthetic benefit as well, as shown by the example of dental implants. The scientific basis of medical technology is made up of research results and methods from the areas of medicine, medical technology, system analysis, biomechanics, biotechnology, biochemistry, and medical physics.

Applications of medical technology in hospitals
Imaging procedures, or techniques that make pathological changes inside the body visible, are the most used and most complex medical products in the hospital. Depending on the type of tissue to be examined, there are different methods to be used with or without the addition of contrast agents: those without ionizing radiation, such as ultrasound (Sonography) and magnetic resonance imaging work, and procedures in which ionizing radiation is used, such as X-rays, computer tomographies, mammographies, angiographies, positron emission tomographies, and scintigraphy in the field of nuclear medicine. Qualified medical technicians and engineers work closely with the computer science department of the hospital and experts of medical physics to take care of the inspection, maintenance, and repair of their medical equipment, as mandated by lawmakers. Medical engineers also advise on the purchase of (large) equipment and the implementation of their technical connections. Medical products must be CE certified and are subject to strict quality and safety controls.
