|1. Warning System.
||A device used to insure that patient isolation precautions are known. This will help to
prevent anyone from entering a patient room where infectious diseases or airborne diseases
are present without the prior knowledge of protection required.
|2. Antibiotic replacement.
||Antibiotic resistance is rising in the united states and especially in hospitals. This
leads to infections that are very difficult to get rid of. Maybe there is a protocol that
could be put into place for cleaning/clearing antibiotics from an area in order to prevent
|3. Migrane Treatment.
||Many people suffer from chronic migraines with no relief. LSD can cause migraine relief
based on its structure resemblance to a serotonin. Maybe there is a naturally occurring
serotonin, LSD analogue, or even a way to target the same center that's triggered by LSD.
|4. Patient protocol.
||Patients enter the hospital and go through DT's, other drug withdrawals, suicidal attempts, etc.
This can lead to the patient lashing out, becoming angry, agitated, or even violent. A protocol
for treating these patients as well as a new way to deal with them could help to prevent the
risk of injury to health care workers on duty.
