Computers in Health Care and Medicine
Doctors, nurses, and other medical practitioners have adapted to computers because they already depend heavily on specialized information to perform their jobs. Having a computer to store and retrieve that information is a natural extension of an already complex and information-intensive process. In addition, with today’s emphasis on government involvement and large-scale health-care providers, controlling costs requires technology to improve the efficient of administrative and patient record keeping and reduce expenses without sacrificing the overall quality of health care.
Intensive care units are an early example of computer-controlled patient
monitoring. At the bedside, critically ill patients are connected to a wide variety of sensors that measure vital signs such as heartbeat, breathing, and brain activity. If any of these vital signs change dramatically, an alarm is sounded and the appropriate life-saving techniques are administered.
Patient monitoring is not confined to the bedside. Some persons with illnesses that require constant medication can benefit from portable of implanted monitoring and control devices. Diabetics, for example, can wear an implanted insulin pump that monitor their blood sugar and releases precise doses of insulin to control the blood-sugar level.
Therapists who treat the needs of speech-, hearing-, and cognitive-impaired
persons can use computer technology to assist in the rehabilitation process. Such
computer-assisted therapy is getting a big boost from products that are designed
to run on personal computers. For example, Speech Viewer is a clinical tool for use by therapists who treat speech disorders or hearing disabilities that affect speech. By letting client and therapist view speech, SpeechViewer provides interactive feedback between speech sounds and the display. Clients can also practise manipulations components of speech in a game like environment.
Another product, Thinkable, is used to treat cognitive impairment or memory loss. Using computers, clients are prompted through clinical practice sessions that help improve memory, attention, discrimination, and sequencing. Such products can help individuals with disabilities achieve greater personal and professional independence.
II. Answer the questions.
8. I … for an hour.

7. Building material is any material which is used ____a construction purpose
8. Apart ______naturally occurring materials, many man-made products are in use, some more and some less synthetic.

The broadest categories of computers are special purpose and general
Special-purpose computers are dedicated to only one function: control-ling
the machines in which they are embedded. They have been given a permanent set
of instructions. In effect, they have been preprogrammed to perform their spe-cific purpose.
on your digital watch, control traffic signals, and inject fuel into your car’s engine as you drive. Some even speak to you, telling you that your car door is open
or that your car is low on gas. In your telephone, they remember numbers and dial
them for you at the press of a button.
Not all special-purpose computers are small. The navigational computers
aboard the space shuttle, the computers found in sophisticated military aircraft, and those found in medical diagnostic equipment are typical examples of medium- to large-scale special-purpose computers.
General-purpose computers differ from their special-purpose cousins by
being programmable; that is, their operation can be changed by altering the
instructions or programs they are given. They can be adapted to many situations
if given appropriate programs. For example, there are programs that can help store and organize data, sort data alphabetically (or any other way you choose), write letters and reports, and generate charts and graphics. Like special-purpose computers, general-purpose computers also come in a wide range of sizes and capabilities.
Some general-purpose computers, known as personal computers, are de-
signed for use by individuals, such as students, office workers, and executives.
Some are even small enough to carry around in your pocket or purse. A close
cousin of the personal computer is called a workstation. Although it resembles a
personal computer in appearance, it is used by scientists and engineers for technical applications that require more computational power. Much larger and far more expensive computers, called mainframes, are designed to process large amounts of data and to be shared by many different people in businesses, government agencies, and scientific and educational institutions. The fastest computers made are called supercomputers. They are used for weather prediction, computer animation, and scientific research. Their performance far outpaces that of even the largest and most powerful mainframe computers. Minicomputers are suitable for use in departments, branch offices, factories, and scientific laboratories.
