A team of Russian scientists from the Laboratory of Optical Radiation of the Kant Baltic Federal University (Kant Baltic Federal University) have developed a new painless method for performing surgical operations on the skin.
To do this, experts suggested using non-thermal plasma (ionized gas, where electrons have a high temperature, and positive ions have a low temperature). Due to the fact that the plasma’s own temperature reaches about 40 degrees Celsius, the surgical procedure is painless. Also, this method can be used to treat open wounds, since plasma is able to stimulate accelerated healing due to increased blood circulation.
In June 2022, scientists from the Australian Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology at the University of California (AIBN) and the University of Queensland found a use for the venom of the world’s deadliest snakes. It is planned to be used as a gel that can stop uncontrolled bleeding.
