About the Video

Medical devices for translators and interpreters 1: Cardiac, vascular and thoracic surgery

We are proud to present a fantastic series of videos about medical devices for translators with Yana Onikiychuk. Yana is a qualified doctor, but at some point in her medical career, she turned to translation, having studied the art. She thus benefits from two backgrounds and is uniquely positioned to explain medical concepts to translators and interpreters working in the field of medicine.

In this series of seven videos we are tackling seven different fields in which medical devices are deployed.

This video deals with medical devices for cardiac surgery, vascular surgery, and thoracic surgery

  • Open heart surgery
  • Prosthetic valves and other devices for structural heart diseases
  • Medical devices for heart rhythm disturbances
  • Video-assisted cardiac and thoracic surgery. The video is designed with experienced and advanced translators in mind. Although attendees should have some experience of medical translation; this video will help you to feel more comfortable when working in the field of medical devices.The speaker will make use of videos, diagrams, and extracts from real documents (IFUs, marketing materials, clinical documentation etc.) to demonstrate and explain many of the devices.
