Blacklisted Links Found on Biomedical engineering[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected links on Biomedical engineering which have been added to the blacklist, either globally or locally. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed or are highly inappropriate for Wikipedia. The addition will be logged at one of these locations: local or global If you believe the specific link should be exempt from the blacklist, you may request that it is white-listed. Alternatively, you may request that the link is removed from or altered on the blacklist locally or globally. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. Please do not remove the tag until the issue is resolved. You may set the invisible parameter to "true" whilst requests to white-list are being processed. Should you require any help with this process, please ask at the help desk.

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to 4 external links on Biomedical engineering. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Merger proposal[edit]

I propose that Health technology be merged into Biomedical engineering. I think that the content in the Health technology article can easily be explained in the context of Biomedical engineering, and the Biomedical engineering article is of a reasonable size that the merging of Health technology will not cause any problems as far as article size or undue weight is concerned. Lucasstar1 (talk) 16:12, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

  • Merge - This article doesn't look like it will improve and has many things to do with Biomedical engineering Lucasstar1 (talk) 23:53, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Do not merge - I think that a) "Health technology" can improve a great deal (simply expanding the section about professions, and the general definition would go a long way); and b) biomedical engineering is not sufficiently related to health technology to complete the merge. At best, "Biomedical engineering" should have a short section about medical technology with a see-also link. Biomedical engineering is the process of creating health technology by using the principles of engineering, and is more of a profession than a type of technology (as "health technology" is). Health technology can be developed without the use of engineering, but biomedical engineering will always create health technology, by definition. All in all, the article "Health technology" needs to stand alone and should not be merged. -- 2ReinreB2 (talk) 01:07, 12 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Do not merge - I agree with User:2ReinreB2 wholeheartedly. "Health technology" is a wide catch-all net for technology use as applied to the healthcare realm. I'd be more tempted to merge it into Health informatics, though it's largely specific to health care technology. Health technology includes medical devices and procedural equipment, among other items. Biomedical engineering is a much more specific division of health technology.Lostraven (talk) 21:40, 29 February 2016 (UTC)
  • "Do not merge" -Health Technology is not the same as Biomedical Engineering — Preceding unsigned comment added by Madimyers (talkcontribs) 14:01, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
