What is Internal Medicine?
Internal Medicine is a broad field of medical study that encompasses almost anything from health to illness, but is more geared toward problem-solving. Internal Medicine can be mistaken for family medicine, but the two fields are distinct. Internal medicine doctors specialize in health promotion and disease prevention. They are often called when a patient has a confusing problem.
What's Included in Internal Medicine?
While many internal medicine doctors have a general specialty, Internal Medicine as a field can encompass a few specific fields.
Dermatology is the study of skin conditions, and as such falls under the Internal Medicine umbrella. MFI carries dermatoscopes, exam tables and chairs, electrosurgery equipment, and smoke evacuation tools to complete any dermatology treatment needed.
The first step in diagnosing a patient is to use a diagnostic set of tools for checking their most vulnerable areas, such as ears, skin, mouth, and throat. MFI carries complete diagnostic sets, as well as individual or wire-free otoscopes and ophthalmoscopes. Don't forget about the consumables as well, including probe covers, tubes, test strips, and more.
To best diagnose a patient, internal medicine doctors need reliable lighting for both exam rooms and treatment areas. At MFI Medical, we offer a full range of lighting, from headlamps to surgery lights, and this range includes exam lights too. These lights are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, with impressive versatility to fit any size exam room. Burton and Medical Illumination exam lights vary in size and intensity, as well as halogen and LED options. Welch Allyn offers finite lighting with a variety of mounts, including wall, floor, or ceiling mounts.
As a student of diagnostics, an internal medicine doctor needs a reliable laboratory to test patient samples. MFI carries centrifuges, tubes, and accessory items needed to run reliable tests. In addition, top tier microscopes are available for laboratories to equip.
Similar to other diagnostic needs, having access to better radiology equipment is an essential in the internal medicine doctor's toolbox. These important pieces of equipment have patient comfort in mind, such as accurate diagnostic ultrasounds and x-ray stretchers that allow the patient to remain in the stretcher during analysis.
