nanotechnology has the potential to impact almost every area of society. new phases of products. Nanotechnology is already being used in products in its passive form. such as cosmetics and sunscreens. Some of the examples of such implicational procedures are given below: . It is one of the major technologies which have highly supported the entire field of medicine. devices and machines which nanomedicine has introduced. One nanometer is one-millionth of a millimeter. such as better batteries and improved electronics equipment. Nanomedicine ranges from the medical applications of nano-materials. and even more useful and practical future applications of molecular nanotechnology. One of the biggest advantages of nanoemdicne is that it can transform common medical procedures into faster one with 90 percent accuracy rate.NANOMEDICINES Introduction Nanotechnology involves manipulating properties and structures at the nanoscale. will be developed and have far-reaching implications. Often hailed as a revolutionary new technology. Current problems for nano-medicine involve understanding the issues related to toxicity and environmental impact of nano-scale materials. nanoelectronic biosensors. to nanoelectronic biosensors. Naomedicine have significant applications in the world of medical sciences. Nanomedicine advantages and applications There is a huge range of Nanomedicine devices which involves medical applications of nanomaterials. Nanomedicine is the medical application of nanotechnology. and even possible future applications of molecular nanotechnology. In the field of medical and biological world nanomedicine has greater significance as this application has facilitated the mankind so well. often involving dimensions that are just tiny fractions of the width of a human hair. and it is expected that in the coming decades. There are many instruments.

Fixed nanomachines could be inserted in the nervous system of the human body to monitor pulse rate. Nanomedicine also has successful applications for the reduction of extra drugs from human body. and other important functions. In human heart defibrillators and pacemakers. biochips. . Drugs dispersion: Live saving drugs are one of the important ingredients in the latest medicines but its unusual and its excess usage could cause death.  Heart and ECG machine: Advanced and fully equipped nanomedical heart trackers are present in the major hospitals to accurately track the heart beat and it’s down falls and also for treating it as needed in the body. chemotherapy. insulin pumps. with wireless transmitters. . Mobile nanorobots. nanodevices could influence the behavior of individual cells. and send out alerts when chemical imbalances appear within the blood. Artificial antibodies: Nanomedicine was the first to conceptualize the artificial red and white blood cells and later on it successfully showed the positive results. Implantation of nanomedicine devices could disperse drugs or hormones as required in people with chronic imbalance or deficiency states. could easily circulate in the blood and lymph systems and can. brain activity.needle less injectors. Cancer patients are now treated by injecting artificial red blood cells to balance the human body blood level. Artificial antibodies. . Nervous system tracking: Nanomedicine has also helped doctors to better understand the phenomenal changes in the human nervous systems. glucose monitoring devices and drug injecting systems. Future perception Researchers have established the excellent device with the help of nanomedicine and in near future nanomedicine applications will be including activity monitors. medical flow sensors and blood pressure. white & red blood cells and antiviral nanorobots could be considered as successful applications of nanomedicine. At its best nanomedical machine may replicate back to them and could cover up the deficiencies by replacing or improving the DNA molecules of body.    Diagnosis using nanomedicine: Diagnostic nano-apparatus could be attached to keep check of the internal chemistry of the body.

add a sense of urgency to the problems that arise. treatment. In the long term we're looking at the ability to do in vivodiagnostics coupled with much more targeted. Because of the paucity of data on the physicochemical properties of nanoscale materials in biological systems. Now we just do general drug therapy: sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. management and communication involving human subjects. the rapid development of nanotechnology and its potentially profound social and environmental impacts. Challenges in Nanomedicine Nanomedicine shows tremendous promise for improving medical diagnosis. we'll be able to avoid those side-effects and we'll have better response to therapy because we'll know who to give it to and how to give it. but it also raises a variety of ethical concerns. If the promise of nanomedicine holds true. In the short term we're looking at advances in drug discovery and drug delivery. and prevention. clinical trials of nanomedicine products present some unique challenges related to risk minimization. as well as the continued miniaturization of analytical/ diagnostic procedures.The advantages of nanomedicine are two-fold. . focused therapy. Although these clinical trials do not raise any truly novel ethical issues. and some medications produce significant side-effects.
