Current research is making progress on addressing several issues but there is no ideal device. In the following, I will describe what I believe an ideal device would be. One of the first issues that needs to be addressed is the mismatch between the Young’s modulus of the electrode and the tissue into which it is inserted. An electrode needs to be stiff enough to puncture into the tissue and be able to move within the tissue without simply bending and not going deeper. As such, the issue of the mismatch can be addressed by coating the electrode in a soft conducting polymer that has a Young’s modulus as close to the tissue as possible.
Sometimes medication may be used in treatment of interstitial cerebral edema in order to reduce cerebrospinal fluid production in chronically increased intracranial pressure. If untreated cerebral edema can cause death. When treated it may still have lingering effects on the body such as: loss of vision, cerebral atrophy with cognitive decline, and altered mental
First line therapies should target the underlying disease, however platelet transfusions may also be mandatory up to some extend. However, in case of diseases with increased platelet activation and consumption, platelet transfusion is not convenient because it may trigger a new pathologic
TASK 3.1 Write a report comparing and contrasting the structure and function of the three types of blood vessels. The Structure and Functions of Blood Vessels ARTERIES The walls of arteries contain smooth muscle fibre that contract and relax under the instructions of the sympathetic nervous system. The functions of the arteries are: transport blood away from the heart and transport oxygenated blood only. Arteries have four different parts, which are; lumen, endothelium, smooth muscle and connective tissue. LUMEN=the lumen of arteries is relatively narrow to maintain high blood pressure.
The continuum model contain three distinct stages- reactive, disrepair and degenerative tendinopathies. The progression through each stage will inhibit the pathological areas ability to recover. Progression through the stages is dependent on load and internal factors such as genetics and other predisposed pathological illnesses such as including adiposity, cholesterol, insulin resistance, diabetes and menopause (cook and Bass et al 2007). Reactive tendinopathy is a short term response to acute overload and will lead to a inflammatory response. Proteoglycan contents within the extracellular matrix are increased however collagen will only undergo a small amount of change.
For instance the Tracheal Suction Catherer (TSC), measurement of liquids, the recording process is all critical, according to (Sha, Fung, Brim & Rubin, 2005). During their actual studies, they found out that greater TCS distance, diameter, force and positioning have become vital for suctioning mucus, it can have a different effect on TSC performance. This only shows that effective learning program changes have been achieved, although they should not be complacent with their knowledge since the practice of endotracheal suctioning can also change. Several practitioners attempt to continue to establish new discoveries and learning opportunities not to be limited by the current process as shown
The rough surface created by atherosclerotic plague increases the probability of a thrombosis because the platelets are designed to aggregate or attach to the rough surfaces. This reduces the nitric oxide bioavailability and thus resulting in the endothelial
Cystic Fibrosis Could you Imagine what it would be like if you had a disorder that clogged and blocked the passageways in your body? Well there is a disease that does this very same thing, and it’s called Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease that causes your body to produce a thick and sticky mucus. No, the disease isn’t the mucus being produced, it’s the mucus being thick and sticky. This mucus is supposed to be thin and watery, so it can act like a lubricant and help protect your bodies organs and passageways.
Multiple sclerosis occurs when damage is brought about to the myelin in the central nervous system (CNS), and to the nerve fibers themselves. What causes this illness or disorder is still not known, but the body response to this by initiating an immune-mediated unwanted response to the stimuli that possibly comes from the environment. This unwanted response interferes with the bodies transmission of nerve signals between the brain and spinal cord and other parts of the body (National Multiple Sclerosis Society, n.d., para. 2). The questions that a nurse would ask a patient with multiple sclerosis are going to be questions about reports of muscle weakness, tingling sensation in the limbs, and poor
This investigation analyses the causes and effects of procrastination and explores a range of measures suitable to cease this destructive habit. The information for this report has been gathered from both printed and electronic sources namely published books, online journal articles, newspaper articles and psychological websites. It was found that procrastination is mainly driven by the fear towards failure and imperfection. Ineffective time spending and poor time allocation is also a root cause of procrastination. Procrastination may deteriorate procrastinator’s health in which procrastinators suffer high stress leading to other chronic diseases including cardiovascular disease (CVD) and hypertension.
