Apple has become a partner with the medical field to produce not only the IGlasses but the IWatch as well. The IWatch is being produced to greatly help those how are diabetic. The IWatch is said to be able to measure glucouse levels, kidney function, electrolyte balance, and potassium levels. The Iwatch is a long lasting battery powered tiny chip that feels like sand paper on your skin but is said to be extremely life changing.

Google Glasses are predicted to become one of the next best things in the medical field. It gives doctors and patients a way to connect easier. Google Glasses can also provide helpful information while in the middle of an operation. Google glasses provides the doctor with a visual display of any information needed, the ability to live stream their operation for teaching purposes or even if something unexpected happens a doctor has the ability to call anyone for help. these glasses can also help patients. thy can identify the person prescriptions review their dosage instructions and teach them how to take these medications safely.

Mental Illness is at an all time high (21%) between the ages of 9 - 17 but some say that that isnt even near where the percentage should be. Due to the cost of health insurance and other medical fees a lot of parents cant afford to get their child tested for a mental disorder which in the long run can be even worse for the child. If a child goes untreated with a mental disorder, that can cause their disease to get worse or even cause co-occurring mental illnesses.
Jessica Byrd's comment, February 18, 2014 12:38 PM
suicide has become one of the worse mental disorders and is known as a common co-occurring mental disorder. its shown that over 90% of children who have a mental disorder actually die from suicide.
Jessica Byrd's comment, February 18, 2014 12:44 PM
Living with and untreated mental disorder has a very negative effect on a kids life. they are more likely to become high school drop out and then eventually end up in jail all before they are even legal adults. A statistic shows that 65% of boys and 75% of girls in juvenile detention have at least one mental illness.

The Kids Are Not Alright

The Kids Are Not Alright | Aspect 1 and Aspect 3 | Scoop.it

-Kids are increasingly self-medicating to deal with the pressure. Forty percent of high-school students report using marijuana (up from 31 percent in 1991). In college, 40% percent of kids under age 21 report “binge drinking”—having five or more drinks on one occasion—in the last month.

-Kids also take prescription medications to cope. I can’t find official figures, but consensus among college administrators, who get counts from their health centers, is that at least a quarter of students are taking prescription drugs for depression and anxiety.

-Thirteen to 24 percent of high school students cut or injure themselves deliberately. Self-injury is a distressingly common way for kids to express emotional pain and relieve stress and anxiety.

-A quarter of college-age women binge-and-purge to “control their weight” (binge eating and then vomiting is a sign of the eating disorder bulimia). Anorexia is the third most common chronic illness among adolescents, and eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness.

-Kids are increasingly depressed, perfectionistic, and committing suicide. A nationwide survey of college students at two- and four-year institutions found that nearly 30 percent of college students felt “so depressed that it was difficult to function” at some time in the past year.” About 10 percent of college students have thought seriously about committing suicide or have made a plan to do so.


When we pressure children to achieve, we cut them off from their sources of inspiration, their passions, and their natural curiosity. They don’t grow up to love learning but instead are schooled in how to game tests and make the grade. This does not make their lives meaningful, or happy.

Mental disorders can have a very negative effect on kids now a days that put them in a lot of danger. According to the new statistics it is now more common for kids between the age of 15 to 18 (high school) to use marijuana. in theb past decade the percentage of use has gone up 10% to 40%. 40% is also the percentage of reported kids, under 21, that say they have binge drank (at least 5 or more) in the past month, of this study. Kids are more likely to get their hands on perscription medication to help them cope. 13 to 24% of kids participate in self-harm. Anorexia and bine-and-purge eating has become something very common in women to control their weight.

"In the not too distant future we will be waving our iPhones or tablets over our patients’ chests, to not only get instantaneous information their heart rate and blood pressure, but also their valvular function and whether there’s any pathology in their lungs such as fluid or infection. This will soon be to a level that reciprocates an echocardiogram.". This is a statement about where a person thinks the medical field is heading. Soon enough it is predicted to be said that Iphones will have an app created that can monitor the persons pulse and blood pressure. Other applications that may come out are real-time blood sugar and hydration monitors. All making it easier for the doctor and patient. There is also said to be something coming out that, based on orders from your body, it can detect certain cancers. The "electronic smartphone stethoscope" is sad to be more accurate and less prone to mistakes and variations that the stethoscopes of today have issues with.

The MEMS is a 14 millimeter chip placed in your body to help as an early warning sign. Once the chip is placed in your body it uses its remote sensors and sends data to medical facilities where the data is studied to see how medicines are working or to help detect life threatening illnesses.

Synthetic biology has become a huge break through for the medical field. Synthetic biology uses engineereing, physics and computer technology. With the break-through of this type of research biologists are focusing on ways to change a persons DNA by reprogramming cells. All this new programming has helped scientists work at a faster pace and on much smaller scales while still producing results. This type of biology is also being used to try and create a new chemical fuel that is less harmful to the public, and also help create new medicine.

Autism is a horrible neurodevelopmental disorder that as of 2008 effects every 1 in 88 kids. With 1 in every 54 are boy and 1 in every 252 are girls. Autism put a huge effect on the development of kids as they get older they have trouble making friends/talking with their peers, they become very repetitive, poor eye contact, no facial expressions, and they like everything done in a certain way. They don't like being in loud areas, or being touched, and they tend to do strange things with their hands like flapping or they will bang their head when they become stressed out. One of the most sever types of autism is Aspergers Syndrome. Although is is considered one of the most sever its probably the only type of autism where it excels the brain in memorizing and demonstrates high skills in math, writing, electronics, and music.

Mental Disorders are on a high rise, or is it? One of the main contributing factors to the mental disorder rate going up is due to the fact that doctors are now doing a better job at diagnosing child with a disease. It is now said that about 20% or 1 in 5 kids have some type of mental disorder. Between the ages of 12 and 17 suicide has become the 2nd leading cause of death. Amoung children between the ages of 6-17 3.5% have behavioral problem, 3% have anxiety, and 2% have depression 11% (1 in every 5) high school age boys have ADHD.

Doctors now-a-days think that having a mental disorder can be worse than physical illnesses. Because mental ilness in a child can affect their brain so much it puts a lot of stress and anxiety on that child which intern can lead to many medical risks on top of the mental disorder. Chronic stress is a major symptom of any disorder but chronic stress and also lead to an increased risk of heart disease. Also when a child has a mental disability it more than likely that that child is also going through mental and physical abuse from those around whether it is intentional or not. People now worry that if nothing is done then that is leading our children down a road where mental health problem are sure to worsen.
