Surgery is an ancient medical specialty that uses operative manual and instrumental techniques on a patient to investigate and/or treat a pathological condition such as disease or injury, to help improve bodily function or appearance. An act of performing surgery may be called a surgical procedure, operation, or simply surgery. (

  • 4 Taking the Leap from Medicine to Public Health

    When a smart, charismatic young doctor has as much success as Howard enjoyed building a department at Beth Israel, it does not take long before the suitors from other medical centers arrive at his door. In Howard's case they not only arrived, it seemed at times as though they were lined up outside his door. After he had been chief at Beth Israel for just four years he received a call to determine whether he would be willing to be considered for the position of medical school dean at the University of Rochester. He declined. But an older colleague told him afterward that it was always useful at the very least to go for an initial interview, for if nothing else it could well prove to be a learning experience for both Howard and the institution he was visiting. He took that advice to heart.

  • Saving the Oodlehood and Shebangity of the Internet


  • You Know It, Can You Teach It?

    For a variety of reasons, many technical experts struggle to “transfer their knowledge”—or to help others construct the knowledge that they already possess—in a classroom setting. The biggest challenge that expert will face is himself/herself. Experts must overcome their own natural abilities with their product. Several decades ago, Noel Burch developed a model for skill development that was quickly adapted by leading psychologists and educators. The model is brilliant in its simplicity and is helpful for experts, not only to understand their student's level of competency, or skill, but also—and even more importantly—to understand themselves, and why they have a hard time teaching. Generally, employers and educators alike reward the unconscious competence as the ultimate achievement. This is where experts want their skills to be in order to be a great employee.

  • Coding System for Patient Care Procedures

    This chapter contains sections titled: * Introduction * CPT * Discussion * Conclusion * Bibliography ]]>

  • Practitioner, Heal Thyself

    This chapter suggests that a software industry could be improved by utilizing a medical school model in universities. Like most current curricula, individual courses would cover requirements, design, implementation, testing, quality assurance and configuration management, project management, formal methods, maintenance, metrics, and so on. After all, people should strive to teach how to do things, not just how to talk about things. Like medical students, each software student should also be assigned a cadaver: a large software system that either works now or worked at one time. During every regular class, students would simultaneously enroll in the cadaver lab, where they would perform related tasks on their assigned software. As in medicine, the students must complete a minimum one-year internship. Internships could take place in special for-profit or not-for-profit companies closely affiliated with or established by the school of software.

  • Software Lemmings

    According to the author, software developers, in their search for the Holy Grail, are convinced that they are doing something meaningful. Like lemmings, they tend to follow the leader, without ever asking ourselves if they want to go where the leader is taking them. This chapter presents the lemming paths explored by the author and provides an idea of their popularity, goals, risks and payoffs. It explores the terms structured programming, structured analysis and structured design. Object-oriented programming is based on very sound principles of quality programming discovered 20 to 30 years ago: data abstraction, information hiding, encapsulation, inheritance, and so on. The process-maturity path is only the first leg of a very long journey on the path to quality software. The chapter also talks about the C language, software prototyping, CASE tools, and COTS software.

  • Telepresence Robots for Medical and Homecare Applications

    This chapter explores the up-to-date research findings and industry practices in telepresence robots for medical and homecare applications, including rehabilitation and therapy, monitoring and assistance, and communication. Moreover, the key contributing factors to the success of telepresence robots are also discussed to address the future trends and opportunities. Robots have the advantages of high precision, strong consistency, and stability. Thus, in the field of medical applications, the use of robots exactly helps to overcome the technical limitations of conventional surgery performed by physicians. Telepresence helps extend not only human vision and hearing but also the sense of touch, which is important for physical rehabilitation. From the user's perspective, human-centered design is definitely critical to the success of the telepresence robot. Once the real demands can be explored and realized, telepresence robots will eventually enter our lives as new roles for modern medicine and homecare.

  • Bladder Tissue Engineering

  • Prologue

    Examinations and tests or assessments function as motivational agents: they make some students very competitive, but all students benefit from the role of examinations and tests as formative agents. Given that the purpose of professional study is preparation to undertake work in a specific occupation, a major question is the extent to which a curriculum prepares or does not prepare students to function satisfactorily in that occupation. Assessments that make this judgment may be made at both the level of the program and the level of student learning. If education is associated with what is learnt in college and training is associated with what is learnt in industry in order to become an engineer who can practice, it is clear that education cannot be divorced from training. Industry has a vital role to play in that training. Assessment has become a preoccupation of many engineering educators.
