MRSA is often called a superbug because it creates various health problems that are hard to treat and cause several infections which reduce one’s quality in life. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is a strain of Staphylococcus aureus that is incredibly hard to treat because of its resistance to antibiotics like Penicillin. The infection tends to pose a threat in places like hospitals where people with weak immune systems and open wounds are commonly infected. It has been hard for medical professionals and pharmaceutical companies to pin down a treatment for MRSA because its cells mutate, change shape and evolve too quickly for any substance to be able to contain it.
Once contracted MRSA is hard to treat, so it becomes important for the bacteria that causes it to be contained before it infects people. This is something that is easier said than done so many methods have been applied to make it possible. Technology has also allowed for the creation of the K* algorithm which is able to anticipate how the bacteria mutates and changes. It has also become a great help in development of various gadgets to help with treatment for MRSA.
The Novaerus is a gadget that looks like a trash can which produces billions of small electronic waves which are harmless and heat-less but at the same time destroys what makes the bacteria dangerous to health. It basically converts the bacteria from its infectious state into a harmless airborne organism. The gadget’s power comes from a plasma field that make it effective at performing this incredibly important duties.
Several hospitals have found that copper door handles are incredibly effective at fighting the spread of MRSA. Though this seems like a simple gadget unlike the Novaerus, copper has been used in treatments and antidotes for thousands of years. When stainless steel on doors was replaced with copper, many places found that infection rates fell drastically and as a result several medical institutions have taken the steps to replace sink taps and handrails with copper ones instead of steel.
Medicine and its many advancements has always been highly important in the combat against the world’s most problematic diseases and infections. Without it, antibiotics and other incredible achievements like life-saving surgical procedures wouldn’t be possible. Technology continues to provide many solutions to problems the world faces and in this has extended to dealing with health issues and infectious diseases like MRSA. It also helps in the search for a treatment for MRSA. Thanks to innovation, gadgets have been created to improve health and make life better.
