Una aproximación a la tecnología cardiovascular a través de la interdisciplinariedad: Una necesidad latino Americana

Producción científica: Contribución a una revistaArtículo en revista científica indexadarevisión exhaustiva


The progresses obtained in the cardiovascular medicine during the last years come to transform the content and the practice of the profession. These advances are consequence of the contribution of basic disciplines like the physics, the chemistry and sciences of the information. Thanks to those disciplines, which establish narrow bonds to each other, appear in the language the transdisciplinary sciences like the biophysics and the biochemistry, an approach between biological and the inorganic thing; as well as the interdisciplinary techniques of the biomedical engineering, whose work move in the medical surroundings using tools of engineering, like the bioinstrumentation, the biomechanics, the bioelectronic and the biomaterials. With these set of tools, it has been possible to extend the diagnoses methods as well as the therapeutic ones in the cardiovascular area, improving substantially the quality of life of the patients. As a result of it, the doctor-engineer encounter becomes transcendent, increasing the dialogue between both disciplines; in what must take part professionals of wide diversity of areas: cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, mechanical engineers, electronics engineers, industrial systems engineers, physicists, designers, among others; contributing each one in its field of the knowledge, but coming together towards a same axis of action.
