Medical research and Experiments by chloe colvin

Medical research and experiments from the Victorian era still impact our medicine today. The discovery of Bacteriology, the microscope, and the anesthesia Chloroform revolutionized the medical field to find diseases and better cures for doctors.
Many scientists and doctors revolutionized medical research in the Victorian era but there are some that went above and beyond. Robert Koch discovered bacteriology and the germ theory, Rudolf Virchow found blood clots, and John Snow discovered how cholera was spreading.
Certain findings and things aided in the discovery of medical marvel's during the Victorian era like the use of home almanacs (because doctors were kind of useless), James Sims experiments on female African American slaves, and the theory of miasma. Some helped while others were pretty useless and might have even set medical research in the opposite direction.
