The subject is focused on special medical technology - laboratories in the field of biochemistry and hematology, as well as on gas and air distribution systems as well as electrical wiring. Next to the field of technology in operating theaters. A brief mention is made of special spaces such as transplantation, burn centers and central operating theaters. Other areas include surgical robots, ophthalmology, implantable medical devices and sterilization. The special area is gerontology and assistive care, special infusion techniques for diabetics and angiology and angiolina. All of these areas also have an overlap in diagnostic methods using this technique in the relevant fields of medicine.
