Christian Louca's insight:

I have always been interested in the medical field because I have always liked helping other people. Helping people avoid pain is one of the best and one of the hardest ways to help people, especially in sensitive places like back and spine. The
Prodigy, a device used to prevent pain for those who suffer parenthesis, is bringing scientists and doctors closer to new ways lessen pain patients go through while suffering from a disorder, or being treated for one. It is not right to see people in pain and I believe scientists should do everything they can possibly do to moderate pain.

 The Prodigy is used to help aid people who have pains in there spine.The Prodigy gives you an insight of how advanced technology is becoming and is being used by everyone differently. The Prodigy is used to prevent paresthesia which is a tingling sensation that is common in spinal cord stimulator users. The Prodigy produces pulses in the spinal cord which then travel to the Brain. The Prodigy is implanted in the spinal cord and Orthopedic Surgeons could control the pattern of pulses. St. Jude Medical have received approval to launch this product. This amazing piece of technology used is an example of how technology is developing more and people are using it differently. This is related to my research question because this is a change in our medical field. But, there are different changes. The Prodigy would be considered a technology change but there could be changes in the training of doctors such as when they are in residency, they receive more breaks.

Salaries of ER Doctors and Trauma Surgeons.

“ View salary range, bonus & benefits information for Physician - Emergency Room jobs in the United States or search by specific US and Canadian cities and towns. View open positions, job Descriptions and other statistics related to Physician - Emergency Room jobs.”
Christian Louca's insight:
Both an ER Doctor and a Trauma Surgeon both make a comfortable amount of money. A Trauma Surgeon receives $28,000 dollars per month, that is more than enough to live comfortably. You could give your family what the need and want, with a limit of course. ER Doctors make $21,000 dollars per month, this is also more the enough to live comfortably. Taxes, health care, and other payments would not be much a concern. These are great amounts of money for helping people live to see another day. Looking at all the facts, becoming a Trauma surgeon would be more rewarding, the pay is higher, you are only needed when there is an emergency, and you only need to see a patient once, for the surgery. This is an easier alternative to becoming an ER Doctor, you are needed during all “emergencies,” even when the problem is not a real emergency and the pay is lower. The more rewarding medical field would be becoming a Trauma Surgeon.

Very interesting topic that you touched on. I never knew that Er Doctors and Trauma Surgeons had many things in common. I also liked the way you set up your scoop it. You started with a simple idea, the similarities and differences between two doctors. First you started with there similarites. Then, you said a couple of things about them individually. Finally you made them go against each for their differences. Finally, you finished that off by concluding what you said. Amazing! Also great sources that you got. It must've took a while to put this together. I just learned so many new things in such a short amount of time and I would never thought of comparing Doctors between each other. You did great!

Advantages of Being an ER Doctor.

advantages of becoming an ER Doctor

Christian Louca's insight:

There are many advantages of being an ER Doctor, one is when you put your time in and you are done for the day. There is always some one there for the sick, so you do not need to stay on stand-by. There is also a chance of “adventure”, all patients have a new unexpected problem, so, you see something new everyday. Although it may look like it, most patients are not real emergencies. Patients do not stay more than 24 hours. There is an anticipation of a large wave of patients that keeps doctors on edge, even when times are slow. ER Doctors are also paid a salary unlike most doctors, which are paid each time someone visits their office. The work environment is also not very chaotic nor fast paced. However, there is no time to think about things. There is a wide variety of things to see as an ER Doctor and it is a very beneficial job.

Similarities Between ER Doctors and Trauma Surgeons

Similarities between ER Doctors and Trauma Surgeons.

Christian Louca's insight:

Despite their different names, ER Doctors and Trauma Surgeons have similar jobs and responsibilities. They both work in the ER or other emergency care units. Their job is to accurately diagnose and treat serious injuries. Their training requirements are also similar to each other. Both ER Doctors and Trauma Surgeons are required to complete the same four-year Doctors of Medicine or Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine degree. They must complete these four year courses before continuing to study for their specialties. Both doctors must learn emergency response techniques, basic surgery, and use of medicine and devises. The most important part of their training is being able to stabilize a patient after any given emergency, after the patient is stabilized, other specialists can treat less urgent problems or more highly specialized problems with a patient. Both doctors are trained in basic chest, abdominal, vascular, and liver surgery. Despite different names and some varying responsibilities, Trauma Surgeons and ER Doctors are quit similar.

Christian Louca's insight:

I am also interested in the medical field and I am always interested in new technology that could aid doctors and their patients. It is a great thing that doctors and scientists are coming up with ways to prevent cancer cells from spreading by finding their source. In this case, the melanoma cancer can be seen by this device, the MelaFind. This could help doctors reduce the number of patients with this cancer and after some time, this particular cancer might not exist. Could this device bring doctors and scientists of the world one step closer to finding a cure for cancer? I think it is definitely one step closer.

These are more examples of the greatest technology inventions that are used to help aid people. These 5 medical inventions are known as the greatest ones ever created. But, the most important technology that changed medicine was the MelaFind. The MelaFind optical scanner helps dermatologists do studies on a dangerous skin cancer called melanoma. The MelaFind is supposed to help dermatologists rude the number of patients with unnecessary biopsy scars. MelaFind was created by Mela Sciences in New York. By receiving approval from the FDA to launch the product, Mela Sciences used missile navigation that was paid for by the Department of Defense to scan the surface of the face. This is another example to show how technology helps people. Also this was a device made in New York only and my research question is supposed to show technology in New York. The MelaFind is a very important piece to our future studies in the understanding of Medicine.

Advantages of being a Trauma Surgeon

advantages of becoming a Trauma Surgeon.

Christian Louca's insight:

There are many advantages of becoming a Trauma Surgeon. One great advantage of Trauma surgeons is the power to able to save someone’s life. It is the best feeling in the world. There is a fantastic salary. You and your family could live very comfortably. Being a surgeon also is great emotionally and physically, it keeps you on your feet at all times and the feeling of helping is great for your emotional state. Another advantage is that you can work in a general practice or in a specialized area. Surgeons also have the most important role in medicine. You can make your own path, you are not bound to one type of surgery, you can train and try an other field. You are also learning new techniques, symptoms, and new problems people come in with. No two patients have the same exact condition. Though people say the best advantage of being a Trauma Surgeon or any other surgeon is the satisfaction of helping people to see another day.

Trauma Surgeons vs ER Doctors

Trauma Surgeons vs ER Doctors | ER Doctors vs Trauma Surgoens. | Scoop.it
Trauma surgeons and ER doctors both treat acute physical injuries on an emergency basis. ER doctors, who are formally known as emergency medical specialists, also treat patients who are brought into ...
Christian Louca's insight:

Trauma Surgeons and ER Doctors are similar, but the each has their own unique differences. Both are required to take a four-year Doctors of Medicine or Doctors of Osteopathic degree, but after that, ER Doctors go to a three of four year postgraduate residency program for emergency medicine. After that they must take the American Board of Emergency Medicine examination. A Trauma Surgeon must complete a five-year residency in general or orthopedic surgery. After they must either take a one-year Trauma surgery residency that evolves around wound and injury surgery or a two-year acute care surgery. These also include instruction in emergency surgery for certain conditions. ER Doctors have their own responsibilities, they provide all medical services needed to correctly diagnose and or stabilize any patient who arrives in an emergency room or a clinic. Their job can deal with anything from supervising or performing life saving procedures like using a defibrillator or reading test results and diagnosing a problem, like in blood and x-rays. ER Doctors must also keep a large record of each patient which can be used in another hospital if needed. Trauma Surgeons also have many different responsibilities. They are called in after the ER Doctor concludes that emergency surgery is needed. These surgeries are needed to save the patient’s life or prevent a disability. The Trauma Surgeon is now responsible for any and all surgical procedures needed for right away and follow-up surgeries. Both these doctors go through similar training but have different responsibilities.
