Can you imagine practicing medicine in a really remote field with no supplies? It would be tough, for sure. Even the very best doctors cannot do very much if they do not have the right equipment. What equipment is that? Well, it varies. A surgeon may need a scalpel and some thread. An ear, nose, and throat doctor really needs a light and a scope to see what's going on in patients' throats. And eye doctors need all sorts of equipment to test patients' vision. Here on this blog, we promise to write about lots of different medical equipment and supplies.
