For several months now, the whole world has been facing a health crisis : the coronavirus. This virus is highly contagious, so the number of patients in hospitals is very high, which has led to a “shortage of doctors and nurses” in the world’s hospitals. As a result, hospitals are finding it increasingly difficult to care for coronavirus patients.
ROBOTS FOR DOCTORS AND NURSES
Day after day we are confronted with the same question : how can we combat this shortage of doctors in hospitals?
I think that in order to cope with this situation, it would be very useful to create robot doctors and nurses, those who have the ability to detect the symptoms of the disease, to diagnose patients, and therefore to use them to cary out the most dangerous tasks.
they could then replace the medical staff during check-ups and carry out tasks such as : taking temperatures, cardiac and respiratory auscultation, taking saliva and distributing medicines.
In addition to reduce the workload of doctors, they could also reduce the risk of transmisssion of the coronavirus from patients to doctors, since a doctor can be contamined by his patient.
