AlMakadma an Assistant Professor of clinical Medicine and Pediatrics from the College of Medicine. Postsurgical patients require very keen monitoring since they’re prone to get internal bleeding which can be subtle and pass unnoticed at first due to the distress the patient is already in, however patients suffering from respiratory distress can get very obvious Asthma attacks but the danger lies in them being secluded from anyone who can actively help. Pilots and other officials supported the project idea and looking forward to seeing students’ recommendations.
Three best papers awards will be given, as well as a limited number of travel grants for graduate students. The organization has been universally recognized over the course of the last century for its outstanding contributions in improving technology and global conditions.
