4.1) HEALTH PROBLEMS: 4.1.1) Heart Diseases The cause of the heart diseases can came from many factors. Sometimes the danger factor is family history. Those with parents or close relatives with heart disease are more likely to develop it themselves.
He reported that the intervals between the episodes of biliary colic decreased from one time every 10 days until it became daily. Also, the attack of biliary colic was relieved by intramuscular injection of antispasmodics and analgesics at first, but they weren’t effective anymore. The option of cholecystectomy was discussed and the patient agreed. Pre-operative laboratory investigations revealed normal kidney function, normal blood picture and elevated liver enzymes and elevated bilirubin (AST=174 u/L), (ALT=399 u/L), (GGT=206 u/L), (Alkaline phosphatase=147 u/L), (Direct bilirubin=2.0 mg/dl) and (Indirect bilirubin= 0.6 mg/dl).
An increased PI is an early indicator of the pharmacologic effect of the anesthesia, often occurring before the onset of the anesthetic effect providing the physician an early indicator of successful anesthetic administration. In the neonatal acute care setting, a low PI has been shown to be an objective indicator of severe illness. In conjunction with oxygen saturation and pulse rate, a diminished PI becomes an important indicator of a critical state of neonatal health. As such, the PI may be important to consider as a standardized, objective measure in addition to conventional subjective means of assessing the state of the neonate. From
A treatment option for those who have suffered an ischaemic stroke is thrombolysis. As 85% of strokes are ischaemic this is a treatment option for many (Fitzpatrick and Birns,2004).The goal of thrombolysis is to disintegrate the thrombus/embolus occluding the vessel and reduce the scale of tissue damage (Fitzpatrick and Birns,2004).It is important to note that thrombolysis using ateplase should only be used to treat acute ischaemic stroke once intracranial bleeding has been ruled out by diagnostic imaging, and within 4.5hours of onset by
In this study, hf-NMES was applied to patients with the severe copd. Exercise and activity limitation are characteristic features of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).Exercise intolerance may result from ventilatory limitation, cardiovascular impairment, and/or skeletal muscle dysfunction. Exercise training, a core component of pulmonary rehabilitation,improves the exercise capacity (endurance and, to a lesser degree, maximal work capacity) of patients with COPD in
In our patient, acute pulmonary oedema developed presumably because of tachycardia caused by anxiety and pain caused by preterm labour in our patient with pre-existing multivalvular heart disease and limited cardiac reserve. Management of these patients is difficult, because guidelines and standards are lacking. Some authors have described the use of general anaesthesia with good maternal outcome, whereas others have reported increased pulmonary arterial pressure during laryngoscopy and
A study published in 2017 looked at the effects of BIPAP on Dyspnea and exercise tolerance in heart failure patients: Patient requirements included a NYHA classification of I, II, and III, having heart failure for six months or longer, and a left ventricular ejection fraction of less than 45%. Forty patients were split into two groups. One group was treated with BIPAP while the other was not. A six min walk study was done before and after the use of BIPAP. This study found that the use of BIPAP decreased the sense of Dyspnea, and increased the walking distance that the patients were able to do during the six min walk study.21 A study by Khayat et al.21 also showed that BIPAP could improve the function of both
The First World War was a major cause for a rapid decrease in the human population. The War created a gap in an entire generation and led to a baby-boom after the war was over. By looking at the graph, one can see that only about half the people sent into war came home unwounded and still alive. For instance, 12.000.000 soldiers were mobilised from 1914 to 1918 and about 2.000.000 soldiers died. This is a decrease of about 16 % of soldiers in 4 years.
This would determine whether primary or secondary preventive interventions would likely be effective in treating condition. Kirkman mentioned type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed by lifestyle interventions or by various classes of medications. In one study mentioned in this article more than 20 % of participants ages 60 and older seemed to have more efficacy from lifestyle intervention than younger participants, but did not appear to benefit from medication. Follow up in 10 years showed the same outcome with ongoing greater impact of the original lifestyle intervention in older participants. This article also discussed the fact that diabetes increases the chance of having other health complications in older adults.
