Titanium robot into nuclear medicine field, not afraid of radiation throughout the monitoring
Today, artificial intelligence has entered the field of medicine, "Dr. Watson" as a cancer treatment software, has been able to beat humans in the game, become accurate "tumor expert consultant."". Now, in the field of nuclear medicine, nano robots become afraid of radiation "super doctor" of radioactive therapy were real-time monitoring, medical, medicine, health care workers receive not only reduces the risk of radiation, but also improve the care and safety of patients.
In September this year, as the first batch of medical institutions in Shanghai and the introduction of the use of titanium meter robot, Renji Hospital took the lead in introducing titanium robot in nuclear medicine, meters, running more than 1 months to achieve good results.
As is known to all, radioiodine as a specific molecular targeted drug for thyroid cancer treatment, radioiodine 131 is currently an important means of treatment of hyperthyroidism and thyroid cancer residual lesions after surgery. Radioiodine -131 can be absorbed by the residual thyroid cancer cells, release beta rays and irradiate thyroid cancer to achieve the purpose of treatment. Due to radioactive iodine in patients taking therapeutic doses of 131 to become "sources", can cause potential radiation hazards on the surrounding population and occupation health care workers, so according to clinical guidelines, patients in the high dose of radioactive iodine -131 treatment, must be in a certain period of time in radiation protection in specific isolation ward.
According to Yan Chai Hospital Director Liu Jianjun Department of nuclear medicine, used in order to reduce the radiation hazards to the medical staff potential, doctors and nurses in each ward should wear lead clothing, clinically usually within a week to take drugs at once to patients, doctors and nurses in general rounds, consultation and answering through monitoring video and intercom facilities with patients, patients with daily routine observation of vital signs are mainly completed by the patients themselves and report.
The first two days after taking medicine, the side effects were relatively large, nausea, vomiting and other discomfort, and laryngeal edema, respiratory distress, and even suffocation. If the monitoring is not timely, it will increase the potential medical safety risk.
And the titanium robot is a "Iron Man" who is not afraid of radiation. It not only brings more accurate service to the patients with radioactivity, but also reduces the occupational injury of the medical staff. The robot can fully implement the treatment of titanium meters standard, every 2 hours to conduct a physical examination of all patients: each robot will automatically go to the isolation ward, call the patient's name through face recognition automatically after confirmation of the identity of patients including body temperature, blood pressure, thyroid iodine uptake and residual radiation monitoring of vital signs and other medical activities, can significantly reduce the number of medical and nursing staff of isolation wards, avoid unnecessary radiation, improve medical safety standards.
The nuclear medicine ward service robot can also help nurses complete the drug distribution and inform the medication method. The nurses face or badge certification into drugs, to determine the payment of beds, each robot will automatically go to the isolation ward, call the patient's name, face recognition by automatic verification of identity and open the box with voice recognition, taking notice of play. The robot can strengthen the education of patients in the treatment process, the robot active interaction with the patient, the boring and difficult medical and nursing knowledge into animation scene in the voice response, to achieve better effect of education.
Robot can effectively help medical staff and patients to carry out remote video, observe the location of the patient tissue. Through real-time video interaction, doctors and nurses can communicate with patients at any time through the robot. The radiation environment of the ward is collected by the radiation detection equipment on the robot, and the corresponding alarm can be carried out according to the requirement. The robot can open the dialogue function, carry on the patient education after surgery and the related question which the patient cares.
According to Yan Chai Hospital Director of nuclear medicine, Liu Jianjun said, "in the clinical application of titanium meter robot, not only improve the care and safety of patients, make patients feel the medical staff has been accompanied in the side, reduce the anxiety caused by isolation and loneliness, more patient safety sense, and reduce the medical staff to accept the risk of radiation, the medical personnel can grasp the vital signs of patients in a more secure environment under protection. Hope that in the future can further improve and develop the ability of human-computer interaction, so that medical staff can increase the interaction with patients, and further improve the patient's medical experience."
In addition to nuclear medicine, the titanium robot has many uses. At present, medical materials transportation robot, nuclear medicine ward service robot, pension accompany service robot and many other medical robot products have been put into the clinical application of Wuhan Union Hospital and other large hospitals.
In the operation room, for example, the software system of the robot through the titanium meters and hospital storehouse HIS docking, can be achieved between the two operation room and supplies, equipment and other items of single level warehouse and automatic distribution function, can effectively avoid the operation in the process of waiting for transport and was forced to interrupt the condition, shorten the operation time, and optimize the operation room the use of high value consumables.
