New Medical Devices : Invention, Development and Use Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


In the past 50 years the development of a wide range of medical devices has improved the quality of people's lives and revolutionized the prevention and treatment of disease, but it also has contributed to the high cost of health care.

Issues that shape the invention of new medical devices and affect their introduction and use are explored in this volume.

The authors examine the role of federal support, the decision-making process behind private funding, the need for reforms in regulation and product liability, the effects of the medical payment system, and other critical topics relevant to the development of new devices.
