ITGS question about robotic surgery

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'd really appreciate if you could help me out with this question:

Discuss one reliability concern for patients undergoing robotic surgery.

Our teacher said it must offer a considered and balanced rewiev that includes a range of arguments, factors or hypotheses. Opinions or conclusions should be presented clearly and supported by appropriate evidence.

Honestly, I have no idea about this. Any help would be great! :) Thanks

Well I don't expect you expand MUCH on this but anyway.

During Robotic surgery there may be a communication failure between the doctor's controls and the equipment used to operate on the person. there may be small factors like loss of power etc. There are times when surgeons perform these surgeries from halfway around the world...so if the internet cuts.

You can read more up from the following links:

They should help you understand the concept of Robotic surgery and come up within facts.

Here's an ITGS Syllabus blog, basically goes with the syllabus. :)

ITGS Syllabus Blog

That's for the 2007 syllabus and it has nothing on Robotics.

I suggest http://www.itgsopedia.wikispaces.com

That's the syllabus we used and it does have robotics, I did it in ITGS and we talked about robotic surgery like forever.. Also, it says: 'Robotics' in the website Ishaan.

2.4.1 Robotics.

Robotic Surgery

Next time, check very well before you say something.

P.S The teacher gave us that website to use all along, I didn't just find it through google.

No offence to your school but the information is kind of.....outdated.

I'm not saying the information is irrelevant or something. It's just not a very good resource for THIS YEAR'S ITGS student. And kudos to your teacher for making a blog on his subject. I truly wish my school teacher had that kind of dedication.
