SWALLOWING DISORDERS AFTER HEAD-AND-NECK CANCERS RADIOTHERAPY Summary Introduction: This study aimed to assess the swallowing function of head and neck cancer patients before and after radiotherapy. Materials and methods: A repeated descriptive cross-sectional study was carried out on 33 head and neck cancers patients treated at Aristide LeDantec Hospital Radiation Therapy Department. The dysphagia was assessed through a self-questionnaire (DHI) and a functional swallowing test (COLP - G -FR). Each patient was seen twice: before treatment (T0) and three months after radiotherapy (T).
Uses a walker. • Mr. Raj Singh, a 68-year-old admitted with chest pain and scheduled to have a cardiac catheterization done today at noon. He is very anxious and rings the call bell every 15 minutes to ask whether he is going to die and if the cardiac catheterization is really necessary. • Mr. George Rivera, a 38-year-old Mexican male, admitted with high blood sugars and newly diagnosed with diabetes.
This patient is 1 year post second bilateral lung transplant and completely immunocompromised from CF and the transplant. One week prior to developing symptoms of high fever, headache, and vague abdominal pain the patient had their stent removed that was placed for treatment of choledocholithiasis, gallstones. This case is presented as rare case due to the imaging of patient virtually identical to a inflamed swollen pancreas (acute interstitial edematous pancreatitis). With further testing and increase of symptoms candida albican infections, a type of yeast infection, was concluded. It was successfully treated by antifungal therapy.
The aim of the study was to find prevalence of work-related musculoskeletal disorders in musicians. Out of 507, 12% of subjects were diagnosed with trigger finger (muscle-tendon syndrome). The causes explained in the study were carrying heavy instruments and repetitive movements of fingers . A retrospective review of 130 professional musicians was done by Katherine Butler and Ian Winspur in London, UK in 2009.
Some other test doctors or physicians my use are cardiac MRI, CT scan, chest x-ray and cardiac catheterization. The prognosis of coarctation of the aorta that it can be cured with surgery, so doctors recommend that the patient needs to have surgery before age 10. Narrowing or coarctation of the artery can return after surgery, more likely in newborns. There is a risk for death due to heart problems among people who had their aorta repaired, so lifetime follow-up with a cardiologist is encouraged by physicians. If you don’t receive treatment, most people die before age
A patient who is morbidly obese with a history of vascular disorders D) A patient with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease Ans: B Feedback: Systemic diseases, such as diabetes mellitus (leading cause); hypertension; chronic glomerulonephritis; pyelonephritis; obstruction of the urinary tract; hereditary lesions, such as in polycystic kidney disease; vascular disorders; infections; medications; or toxic agents may cause ESKD. A patient with more than one of these risk factors is at the greatest risk for developing ESKD. Therefore, the patient with diabetes and hypertension is likely at highest risk for ESKD. 10.
Oral mucositis is the main complicate of head and neck chemotherapy. The current study was conducted to evaluation of Hypozalix artificial saliva and propolis mouthwash efficiency for the prevention of Chemotherapy induced-oral mucositis in Leukemia patients .This was a randomized controlled clinical trial conducted on 72 Chemotherapy induced-oral mucositis in Leukemia patients. The patients were divided into 3 equal treatment groups: Hypozalix artificial salivary, Propolis Mouthwash, and control groups. The method of artificial saliva Hypozalix usage according to the manufacturer order was as 4 or 5 puffs every 8 hours and every time on the left or right buccal mucosa, and the second group method usage was for 14 days, everyday 3 times, each
Melanoma is a type of skin cancer. There are three different types of skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and melanoma. Melanoma is the deadliest of those three. There are thousands of Americans (and many others) diagnosed with skin cancer every year “The American Cancer Society estimates that at present, more than 135,000 new cases of melanoma in the US are diagnosed in a year. In 2015, an estimated 73,870 of these will be invasive melanomas, with about 42,670 in males and 31,200 in women.”
Patient Safety In 1999, the Institute of Medicine released a report citing that medical errors accounted for approximately 98,000 deaths in the United States each year. It was also determined that medical errors have a direct impact on the spiraling cost of healthcare. With this revelation regulatory organizations, insurance companies and government official starting putting protocols and guidelines in place to decrease medical errors and create a culture of quality improvement (McGowan & Healey, 2009).
According to Emory University, the 20th university in the world, they say, “Each year, 34,598 people die by suicide, an average of 94 completed suicides every day [...] One in 10 college students has made a plan for suicide.” This shows that stress can lead to suicide because people act differently because it can cause people to kill themselves. This means that 10% of all college students have made a plan to kill themselves. Therefore, stress is a huge deal as it can cause many health issues and death.
