At the conclusion of the International Conference on Biomedical Engineering.. Strengthening the role of the medical engineer


Damascus, SANA- Participants at the conclusion of the first international scientific conference for biomedical engineering in Ja


At the conclusion of the work of the First International Scientific Conference on Biomedical Engineering at Damascus University Coliseum today, the participants recommended the necessity of raising the nature of specialization for medical engineers because they are exposed to multiple risks (radiation, laboratories and pollution due to germs, medical waste and workshops).

The participants in the conference held by the Faculty of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering at the University of Damascus under the title “Biomedical Engineering and its Role in the Development of Health Care” called for the acceleration of approving the profession’s practice system that was submitted by the Syndicate of Engineers, which regulates the work of the medical engineer in Syria and gives facilities to small private projects. Manufacturing medical equipment and supplies, activating cooperation between ministries and the university in the field of spare parts for medical equipment, and discussing some laws related to the import of these parts and their harmonization with international regulations.

The participants also called for strengthening cooperation between the Biomedical Engineering Department and the Ministry of Health by training medical engineering students in the ministry and encouraging cooperation with the Ministry of Industry to start manufacturing local medical devices and prosthetic limbs, in addition to strengthening cooperation with local and international companies in the field of training, rehabilitation and supervision of scientific research.

The participants stressed the need to encourage research related to the use of nanotechnology, enhance the role of the medical engineer in health institutions, oblige medical equipment companies to train third- and fourth-year students in the Department of Medical Engineering, and oblige private hospitals to have a medical engineer and train third- and fourth-year students in the Department of Medical Engineering, as well as work to hold an annual conference. in this field.

The sessions on the last day of the conference focused on a set of studies and research on prosthetics, orthotics, modeling and simulation in the fields of dentistry, biosimilars, medical imaging and biomechanics, in addition to reviewing a number of researches in medical engineering.

In statements to SANA, Dr. Zuhair Marmar, Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences at Damascus University, confirmed that today's focus largely focused on prosthetics and orthotics, due to the societal need for this matter after the war that Syria was subjected to, noting the students' interaction with the lectures and new topics presented by the conference, which indicate on the success of the conference and the achievement of its desired goal.

Dr. Nabough Al-Awa, a professor at the Faculty of Human Medicine at Damascus University, pointed out in a lecture he gave about rhinoplasty methods and its relationship to medical engineering to the need to find a program to transfer the shape of the nose to the patient before performing the operation, which reduces the patient’s reaction to the nose and brings his desire closer to the possibility of achieving it, and to find a program that trains the novice doctor in plastic surgery from During the procedure before performing the required operation in order to avoid medical errors.

Dr. Khaldoun Darwish, Dean of the Faculty of Dentistry at Damascus University, spoke in his lecture about the applications of rapid modeling in surgical restoration of the maxillary region, while Dr. Gholamreza Rawhi from Iran gave a lecture on the Internet entitled “Biomechanical Approach to Understanding the Interactions of Dental and Orthopedic Implants.. More Efficient Implant Design.” .

From France, Dr. Basem Haiba gave a lecture on “high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging of the brain .. methodological developments.” From Malaysia, Dr. Noor Hamza Nasser spoke in her lecture about a new technique in the field of medical imaging to extract the features of forearm movement.

The conference was launched yesterday, accompanied by an exhibition of the latest technologies and medical equipment in Syria.
