  1. History of Health & Medical Milestones

  2. The Early Beginnings: • Many illness and ailments were treated with plant sources. • Digitalis comes from the foxglove plant • Quinine comes from the bark of the cinchona tree. • Belladonna and Atropine are made from the poisonous nightshade plant. • Morphine is made from the opium poppy. The Ancient Times: • Hippocrates based his knowledge of anatomy and physiology on his observation of the human body. Hippocrates also wrote the standard of ethics; which is still the oath that Physicians take. • The Egyptians were the earliest people to keep accurate health records. • The Ancient Greeks were the first to study the causes of disease. • The Romans learned from the Greeks and developed sanitation systems, • and the Romans were the first to organize medical care

  3. The Dark Ages: • When the Roman Empire was conquered by the Huns, the study of medical science stopped, and for about 1,000 years medicine was only practiced by convents and monasteries. • Epidemic outbreaks of disease caused millions of deaths • The Bubonic Plague killed 60 million people • Small Pox, Diphtheria, Syphilis, and Tuberculosis were ramped The Renaissance Period: • The rebirth of learning and the study of medicine were responsible for many new developments. • The building of universities and medical schools • The acceptance of dissection of the body for the purpose of study • The development of the printing press and the publishing of books

  4. The Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries: • Several scientists added new knowledge and discoveries. • Leonardo da Vinci studied and recorded the human body • William Harvey studied physiology and the circulation of blood • Gabriele Fallopius discovered the fallopian tubes in the female anatomy • Bartolommeo Eustachio discovered the tube leading from the ear to the throat (Eustachian Tube) • Antonie van Leeuwenhoek invented the microscope

  5. The Eighteenth Century: • Students attended lectures in the classroom and they observed patients at bedside, and when a patient died, they dissected the body to study the cause of death. • Rene Laennec invented the stethoscope • Joseph Priestley discovered the element of oxygen • Edward Jenner discovered a method of vaccination for small pox • Benjamin Franklin developed bi-focal glasses, and discovered that colds could be passed from person to person

  6. The Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries: • The advancement of organized medical science and the development of medical technology began to unfold. • IgnazSemmelweis identifies the cause of childhood fever (Puerperal Fever) • Louis Pasteur discovered that tiny microorganisms were everywhere • Joseph Lister developed antiseptics for surgery • Ernst von Bergmann developed Asepsis (sterile surgical procedures) • Robert Koch discovered many disease causing organisms • William Roentgen discovered X-rays • Paul Ehrlich discovered the effect of medicine on disease causing microorganisms • Gerhard Domagk discovered sulfonamide compounds

  7. DimitriIvanovski discovered that some organisms that caused disease were a virus, and they could not be seen with a microscope • Poliomyelitis, Rabies, Measles, Influenza, Chicken Pox, Herpes, Mumps, German Measles • Sigmund Freud discovered the conscious and unconscious parts of the mind and developed psychoanalysis • Alexander Fleming discovered that penicillin killed bacteria • Ernst Chain and Howard Florey develop penicillin and antibiotics • Jonas Salk discovered that the dead polio virus would cause immunity to poliomyelitis • Albert Sabin used the live polio virus to develop a more effective vaccine against poliomyelitis • The process of transplanting organs is further developed • The use of computers to diagnose medical conditions • The development of noninvasive techniques for surgery • The advancement of prenatal care for the fetus • The further development of the treatments for Cancers and other chronic diseases

  8. Complementary and Alternative Therapies: • Acupressure: pressure applied with the fingers, palms, thumbs, or elbows to specific pressure points on the body • Acupuncture: the insertion of very thin needles into specific points along the meridians in the body to stimulate and balance the flow of energy • Antioxidants: nutritional therapy that encourages the use of substances that prevent or inhibit oxidation and neutralize free radicals in the body • Aromatherapy: the use of selected fragrances to alter mood and restore thebody, mind, and spirit • Biofeedback: relaxation technique that uses monitoring devices to provide information about reaction to stress by showing heart rate, respiration, blood pressure, muscle tension, and skin temperature

  9. Herbal Medicine: • medicine derived from herbs, plant extracts, roots, stems, seeds, flowers, and leaves • Hydrotherapy: • use of water to massage and soaking in hot springs or tubs to relax the muscle tissue • Tai Chi: • ancient theory that states health is harmony with nature and the universe and a balanced state of yin (cold) and yang (heat) • Yoga: • Hindu discipline that uses concentration, body positions, andritual movements to maintain the balance and flow of energy
