Modern medicine has become unimaginable without the use of technical means. The process of increasing technical sophistication first started as early as the 1960s. Especially in the USA, technical innovations such as electric beds or automated X-ray film developing devices, as well as laboratory diagnostics in the daily clinical routine, were deployed at early stages. In the following decades, technical progress has constantly been reflected in medicine. Nowadays, computers, digital imaging, and automatic analysis procedures, as well as robotic systems, belong in many places. While the "digital revolution" has changed large areas of business and everyday life in recent years, Internet and software-based solutions in medicine first raised concerns and skepticism. However, recently there has been a change of thinking. Terms such as "digital health" and "medicine 2.0" are discussed and officially used widely. Some people even propose that progress through digitization can be placed on the same level as the development of antibiotics. The Danish health system offers a glance into the near future. In spite of strict data protection guidelines, an electronic patient record system has be
The chronological age of a person can usually be accurately determined with the aid of a birth date. In contrast, the biological age is quite difficult to measure. There are a multitude of theories about the aging process, but the causative mechanisms, however, remain largely unknown. This is believed to be a multifactorial process that is influenced by internal and external factors, such as genetic structure, lifestyle and environmental factors. In the course of this process, complex physical changes oc
Increased blood, fat and cholesterol levels are among the main risk factors for the onset of cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, besides high blood pressure drugs, statins are one of the most commonly prescribed medications worldwide. Statins inhibit the body's cholesterol synthesis and can thus help to reduce blood cholesterol levels. However, their broad usage is often controversial and widely discussed, with potential alternatives currently being researched. Presently, a focus of scientific interest is in the propro
Being overweight or obese can be an important risk factor for the occurrence of metabolic, heart and circulatory illnesses. Originally considered pure and passive energy storage, fat tissue has since come to be seen as the biggest endocrine organ of
