Medicine Then and Now

Medical technology has advanced by leaps and bounds in the past few decades.  From lifespan to vaccinations, we’ve seen huge improvements in how our health is managed today.  www.bestnursingmasters.com has created an infographic entitled, “Then and Now: From 1950 to Today” detailing the progression and improvement of medicine and medical technology in the last 60 years.

Back in 1950, the average lifespan was 68.2 years.  Today, the average life span is 78.6 years old.  Not only are we living longer, but we are procreating at an increased rate as well.  There were 3, 632,000 births in 1950, and last year we recorded 4, 131,019 births.  Thanks to advances in medicine, infant mortality rates have dropped sharply.
