Remember that the human being is characterized by its ability to adapt to the environment in which it is located, then our mind may be at the level needed to handle the type of technology that will be in the future?.

The history of medicine is very interesting since it has been revolutionizing according to the needs of the human being and their ability to cope with adversity. Being a step forward of great importance and help for humanity in 1905 is performed the first transplant surgery in humans1.

However, still exist situations in which despite medical advances patients lives were lost and that’s why, in 1915, are the first fruits to the blood transfusion1, which is a significant process that has saved thousands of lives since that time to the present day. And to finish with the historical events of the advances of medicine we have in 1961 the creation and use of artificial heart valves1, without a doubt an excellent aid for patients with heart failure.

This being a brief timeline of historic events, how it will be the future for health professionals? Today have begun to undertake studies and projects such as reverse paralysis in quadriplegic patients2 or as the atlas of cells, which is a project where its easy access will allow to search for treatments for different conditions cell phones at more than 37.2 trillion from different cells2.

The future is uncertain, but with the new projects for the future health system pioneers, this will be your starting point for the cure of many diseases that we know as “incurable”, may be correct from deletions and translocations chromosome without affecting the fetus still in its early, to find the cure and be able to change the lives of people living with such unusual conditions such as diseases of Epidermodysplasia Verruciformis3 and their variants.

” Not there a drug such as hope, no big incentive and no tonic so powerful as the expectation that something happens tomorrow.” -Orison Swett Marden.
