Hey guys,
In prep for the medicine paper on monday, I've been doing some exam questions I found online. There's one particular exam question I'm struggling with:

‘There was little progress in medicine in the Middle Ages.’ How far do you agree? Explain your answer (16)

Any help/pointers with the question will be greatly appreciated

is this history?
Lack of anaesthetics so patients died from shock/pain - Laughing Gas/ Nitrous Oxide introduced by Joseph Priestly in 1772.
Lack of antiseptics mean more patients died from disease contracted after surgey. Carbolic acid first used by Joseph Lister in 1867.
Lack of understanding that microorganisms caused diseases, work of Pasteur in late 1890s and the germ theory.
No women were doctors, societal/religious influences, only males attended universities, only seen as male work
