3 Most Necessary Medical Interventions

A medical intervention according to Medicinenet is, "In medicine, an intervention is usually undertaken to help treat or cure a condition."

These types of interventions can include things like therapy to teach a kid to speak who is afflicted by autism, medications to prevent anxiety or even rash cream to suppress a rash on the body.



With so many great medical interventions available, it can be difficult to pinpoint which should be considered the best. However, there are many that can be considered the most notable and the most necessary. Let's take a look at three of the best medical intervention tools that exist as of now.

The Antibiotic

Likely, the antibiotic is one of the most useful, necessary and beneficial medical intervention there is. Not only does the antibiotic take care of the symptoms but it can also treat the underlying condition.

So, what does an antibiotic do?

Antibiotics are interesting because of the way they work. They are created to attack characteristics that bacteria cells have but human cells do not. For example, human cells do not have a cell wall. However, most bacterial cells do. Antibiotics like penicillin work by keeping a bacterium from building or creating a cell wall.

The X-Ray

In 1895 a German Physicist discovered the X-ray. Although discovered by accident, it has become a timeless and priceless invention to the medical community. Having been voted the top-rated modern discovery, the X-ray has helped many people understand diseases, bodily function, and has aided in the cure of disease as well.

The X-ray allows us to see within the human body without the use of surgery. Considered mostly a diagnostic tool, the X-ray is likely to remain a top contender on the medical intervention list.

Hypodermic Needle

Likely, the hypodermic needle is overlooked. However, because of this invention, we are able to give immunizations and medication. The hypodermic needle has helped to rapidly decline the rates of influenza, and other once deadly conditions.

The hypodermic needle not only allows for rapid, easy injection of fluids, but it has also reduced contamination. Because of the needles smooth surface, airborne pathogens cannot become lodged within the irregularities on the surface of the needle.

The hypodermic needle also reduces contamination because of its sharpness. The tiny hole created by the needle head reduces the likelihood that bacteria or other contaminants can enter the body through the injection site.

The Bottom Line

Medical intervention devices have been an important invention and discovery for society as a whole. However, it is important to consider that not all medical intervention is utilized in the right way. According to ScienceDirect,

"Some interventions and the use of drugs to suppress symptoms contribute to, and cause, disease. Adverse-effects of medications are often treated with additional drugs, which in turn can cause additional problems."


This means that while some medication options seem like they work, many of them do not address the underlying condition. Instead, these medications simply treat the symptoms. It is important to follow up with the actual medical condition itself and the underlying cause.
