3 Frightening Medical Devices You Won’t Believe Existed

In the current age of medical enlightenment, people around the globe have access to expert care at a moment’s notice. Patients can drive a few minutes to urgent care or the nearest hospital, or call an ambulance that’s sure to respond quickly. And when they arrive at the doctor’s office, we can be certain the latest medical advancements are at their disposal: Cutting-edge techniques to reduce pain, and precise instruments to make our visit efficient and effective.

Great doctors over the years have universally had premium patient care in mind, but they haven’t always had access to the medical devices needed to do the job. Take a look at a few:

  1. Tonsil Guillotine. Open wide! Before antibiotics, infections could often lead to death. This vintage medical device slipped down the patient’s throat, then speared and snipped the troublesome tonsils.  
  2. Dental Key. Stress ball needed! Before dental equipment and data caught up with patient needs, this archaic device was used to clamp a painful molar and wrench it free, roots and all.
  3. Osteotome. Not exactly cutting edge! Used for trepanning, or relieving under-the-surface pressure after a cranial injury. Doctors of old used this mini chainsaw to treat brain trauma; today, the tool has been updated (to put it mildly) to help relieve pressure under a fingernail or toenail.

Thankfully, there’s no need for those scary tools nowadays. In fact, you can find every modern device you need for your office, from furniture and lighting to surgical instruments and AEDs at Medical Device Depot.
