Technologies for the Treatment of Cardiovascular Disease

Technologies for the Treatment of Cardiovascular Disease

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, with over 17 million per year according to the World Health Organisation. This represents approximately 31% of global deaths. Many forms of cardiovascular disease are chronic in nature, meaning that they worsen over time. Thus, once the disease has been diagnosed it is important to initiate treatment as soon as possible in order to provide positive patient outcomes.

Emerging Technologies Deployed in China during the Coronavirus Period

Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been spreading in many places, which has brought great concern, inconvenience and harm. It also changes the lifestyle in some areas as people are requested to quarantine themselves or avoid contacting each other. In order to better conduct monitoring, prevention and control, multiple high-tech and emerging technologies have been deployed. Some of them may still play an important role when everybody comes back to normal life. This article will show the readers a selection of them.
