Challenges Facing Humanity Today Audience Reaction Speech Reflection Paper

Question Description

I’m working on a Communications question and need guidance to help me study.

Your speech has been recorded. You are to watch the video of yourself and write an (approximately) 1-page essay explaining what you did well AND what you think you need to improve on, using the answers to the questions below as a guide for your paper. The paper should be typed in 12 pt. Times New Roman with 1-inch margins, and it can be double-spaced or single-spaced.

NOTE: This is a self-evaluation paper, not a simple Q&A format. It should have paragraphs, etc. While it should be clear to me that you have included the following information (i.e., answered the following questions), you should not include the questions. This evaluation should be written in the form of a reflection paper. HINT: I suggest you use 6-8 paragraphs.

ALSO NOTE: For questions 4-6, you must answer based on what you see in the video, NOT what you remember from giving the presentation.

Here are the questions to help you evaluate yourself:

  • What are two things you felt you did well during the speech? These things can include content, visuals or other aspects of the speech (though organization & delivery are covered in separate questions). Explain why you thought these aspects of your speech went well.
  • What are two things you felt you could have improved upon about your speech?
  • If you could change something about how you did your speech, what would you change? This can include a wide variety of things, from the topic itself, to how you prepared, to how you organized the speech.
  • Evaluate your organization for this speech. How well do you think the speech was organized? Do you feel you followed the guidelines or could you use improvement in your organizational skills? Explain your answer.
  • Evaluate your citation of sources. Did you cite them all out loud? Did you give enough information the audience could find each one, if they wanted to do so? Did you give any facts, statistics or opinions without citing the source out loud? Did your visuals have credit lines, where applicable? What might you do differently next time?
  • Evaluate your delivery for this speech. Were your posture, voice, and gestures effective or are there considerations you could have made to improve your delivery?
  • What was the hardest part about preparing for this speech?
  • What was the best part about giving this speech?

Running Head: INFORMATIVE SPEECH ON MEDICAL DEVICES Informative Speech on Medical devices Ameen Mohamed COMS 2302: Professional & Technical Communication for Science Engineering Linda Bishop March 23, 2020 1 INFORMATIVE SPEECH ON MEDICAL DEVICES 2 Introduction Have you ever imagined what would happen to suppose all the healthcare inventions and medical devices were not yet made? We are surrounded by technology, and some of its benefits are prevalent, especially in the healthcare sector. Technology is essential, and so you should be aware of medical devices. Today I am going to inform you about medical devices, their impact in the medical sectors, and why and how they have been significant in medical practices. Aimee Mullins once said, "at some point in every person's life, you will need an assisted medical device - whether it's your glasses, your contacts, or as you age and you have a hip replacement or a knee replacement or a pacemaker. The prosthetic generation is all around us." I know some of you, like me, are probably asking themselves what these medical devices are, and why them. Well, a medical device is any device that is designed to be used for medicinal purposes. In 2018, Bernstein and his colleagues in research categorized such methods into different classes. Class I devices comprises of surgical tools or instruments; Class II devices are ultrasound scanners and contact lenses; Class III consists of hemodialysis machines and orthopedic implants, and lastly, class IV, cardiac pacemaker. These devices are used to diagnose, monitor, and treat diseases, disabilities, and injuries. On many occasions, you might have wondered what is wrong with you. Maybe you are sitting on your couch, and you develop this harsh and pain in the abdomen, and you conclude it is just but a slight food poisoning and get some pain killers. Since some diseases are rare and some dominant, you may feel better in the next few hours. The problem is, what if you don't. Well, this may require screening and suppose it is something complex, medical devices may be used. Suppose such tools did not exist, ask yourself, what could have been the problem? Well, the answer is, you don't know and could not have known without medical devices. INFORMATIVE SPEECH ON MEDICAL DEVICES 3 As a medical practitioner, you should be aware of new rules on medical devices. Medical devices have rules depending on the country or state from which they are practiced or used. In the United States, for instance, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates medical devices intending to ensure the effectiveness and safety of the methods. The CDRH or Center for Devices and Radiological Health is a component of the FDA that looks after the program. That is why you need to understand the advantages and demerits of such devices alongside risk factors they carry along. Carey, in her 2019 handbook, highlighted various advantages that medical devices have brought to the lives of humanity. Well, in medicine, all that matters is accuracy. Even for good doctors, errors are inevitable because we are all but human beings, and we all make errors. With medical devices, such errors are minimized. For instance, diagnosing a patient based on observable symptoms may conclude an erroneous disease, which would not be the case if medical devices were used. We all know sicknesses, and we are sure to know more about new conditions. However, when it comes to precision, we may need a hand from medical devices. To some extent, not all that is good, are all beneficial. You probably know what happens when you keep your fingers in water in a kettle on electricity. Trust me, and if you don't, then you will learn it the hard way. Even medical devices needs monitoring. Radiation is used to cure some diseases, but in case of errors from the machine, the patient undergoing treatment may suffer severely from the same condition. That is just but an example, but there are many more errors with devices that are far much fatal than human mistakes, and we all need to monitor such machines. It is the 'monitor me, I monitor you' game. Medical technology plays a significant role in medical practices. Just think about the current generation that is dominated by fatal diseases. Who would know you have cancer without INFORMATIVE SPEECH ON MEDICAL DEVICES 4 a proper scanning. We cannot even know how our babies are doing in the womb without the help of medical devices. In the contemporary world, such devices have made work easy and with precision. We all can now be guaranteed, and it is not cancer but a broken born. It's not just a fever but its malaria. All these are courtesy of medical devices. Sometimes, it is vital as a medical practitioner to identify and know the likelihood of occurrence of an error. In 2018, Jacob and his colleges discussed that it is crucial to identify some risk factors that a machine may pose to a patient. Some devices may be applicable for some patients and may not work for others because we all have different responses to treatment, and so does different blood groups or types. As a doctor, you should be aware of risks when applying medical devices to a patient. It is always my dream to see a healthy society around me. That is why I strive much to ensure that everyone gets the best out of my effort. Some states have a weak economy and worse one that people in that given region die of mild sicknesses. My point is, poverty is and has controlled the human lives. I may hope that we may have such devices in every society or community around the world to solve any problems like they do in other countries. Medical devices are essential, but if you can't afford them, they are as much as useless. In addition people are afraid of such regarding their errors. Conclusion In a nutshell, healthcare practitioners have tried their best to bring what we see today as healthcare devices and are still struggling to up with new things that will help solve all human mysteries. All we have to do is hope for the best and that the future generation to have a better life than we have today. Medical devices are essential, and governments should strive to ensure INFORMATIVE SPEECH ON MEDICAL DEVICES they are available to every person within the country or state, disregarding their economic status because we are all but one and depend on each other. 5 INFORMATIVE SPEECH ON MEDICAL DEVICES 6 References Bernstein, D.

When I stood to make my presentation, I felt nervous at first. However, thanks to that
feeling since it activated my adrenaline. I felt a surge of energy surge in me as I tried to
overcome the feeling. I believe that is what made me articulate the opening statement that well. I
remember how people got attentive when I posed the question about what could happen if no
medical devices or interventions existed. Repeating the question for the second time helped
arouse the attention of my audience. I ...
