Medicare and Medicaid programs are expected to cover $160 billion, or 68 percent, of the total health care and long term care expenses that is nearly one in every five Medicare dollars is spent on people with Alzheimer 's and other dementias. In 2050, it will be one in every three dollars. Unless something is done, in 2050, Alzheimer 's is expected to cost more than $1 trillion . That means there will be an increase in government spending and more economical issues for U.S and many other countries that suffer from this disease. Alzheimer 's is one of many serious illnesses that affect a wide range of people among us and many people lack the awareness about the diseases.
Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease past infancy for U.S. children. However, thanks to better therapies, more than 80% of U.S. childhood cancer patients now become long-term survivors. Survival rates can vary depending on the type of cancer. About 420,000 childhood cancer survivors live in the U.S., with much more around the world (St. Jude Children 's Research Hospital) this shows that cancer is one major diagnosed disease found in children under the age of 15. Cancer patients will have long-lasting chronic conditions during treatment.
Among the positives we can include that from 1999 to 2012, 70% public spending went in education and health care. Before the Bolivarian Revolution were 18 doctors per 10 thousand. Today the population is about 59 to 10 thousand inhabitants and thus significantly reduce child mortality. Chavez was built around 7000 health care clinics across the country. Among the negatives certainly the enormous crime, the level is very high in regional and global scale.
Today in America the homeless account for almost 1.8 million with nearly 44 % of them being men. Disease and mortality are greatest in the homeless, there has “been a 51% increase in the number of patients age 50 or older between 2008 and 2014 (Healthcare).” With these increasing numbers, the growing need for advanced care planning in the homeless is becoming more relevant. The case study that was examined was Paul: No Surrogate.
Although it can occur at any age, significant predilection is in second to third decade of life more commonly in male patients. The above patient was reported in the 4th decade of life which is relatively rare age of occurrence. Keratocystic odontogenic tumour usually tends to enlarge without significant expansion.  However this case showed significant buccal and lingual cortical expansion, which is a rare finding. Other features are swelling, pain, discharge and paresthesia of lip.
“Technology is constantly advancing, price competition is fierce, and the consumer is king,” writes Sally C. Pipes of the Pacific Research Institute. “In the past decade, more than three million Lasik procedures have been performed. During that time, the average price of Lasik eye surgery has dropped nearly 40 percent, from $2,200 to $1,350 per
The easy solution to this, not involving the termination of the fetus, is simple: prevention. The PP clinic has helped nearly five million women (and men) with their services, and prevented about 579,000 unintentional pregnancies every single year. If the consistently stressed importance of safe sex is withheld over a period of time, awareness would spread, and females are less likely to get unintentionally pregnant, saving a lot of time, money, lives, and
B. Hashimoto’s disease is much more common in women than men. 1. Wilmar Wiersinga of the Department of Endocrinology & Metabolism, Academic Medical Center, University of Amsterdam, in The Netherlands states that “The incidence of autoimmune hypothyroidism is about 350 cases/100,000/year for women and 60 cases/100,000/year for men in iodine-sufficient regions and 44 (females) and 12 (males) per 100,000 per year in iodine-deficient areas.” 2. Although the disease often occurs in adolescent or young women, it more commonly appears between 30 and 50 years of age.
In a research of more than 4000 older citizens living in New York, it was found that the rate of elder abuse was at 76% (Burnes et al., 2015). A national survey conversely noted the rate was at 9%. It is highly likely though that mentioned figures were underestimated since not every senior citizen took part in the survey and also the reliance on the self-reported cases excluded older persons suffering from dementia. According to (Peterson et al., 2014; Dong, Chen & Simon, 2014), older people suffering from dementia are the individuals mostly prone to financial mistreatment. In considering such incidences, it is easy to make an estimate that 10% of older individuals reasonably suffer from elder abuse (Acierno et al., 2010).
China is having the largest numbers of abortion compared during period 1980-2010. The total number of abortion almost reaches 400 million. National Health on Family Planning Policy reported that more than 13 million babies are aborted in the country every year. It is estimated that 1,500 babies every hour and in average 35,000 babies per day are
AA adults have the highest mortality rate from DM in individuals less than seventy years of age than other ethnic groups (Tancredi, et al., 2015). In 2010, diabetes mellitus has caused the deaths of 69,071 people in the United States with total percentage deaths of all males (48.2%) and females (51.4%). In 2013, their mortality rate accounted for 21.2 deaths per 100,000 populations (CDC, 2015). This alarming statistics have proven that AA adults at risk for T2DM are in a greater need for EB interventions that will be championed by the advanced practice nurses
Fresno County is located in the central regions of California (CA). Current estimates put the population at around 965,000 which represents a huge 20% increase over the last 14 years. Most of the population growth came from the Hispanic and Asian communities, which now represent over 33% of the total population. Given the County 's proximity to both Sacramento and Los Angeles, they too suffer from a large number of crimes and death related to drug abuse and addiction. Startling Statistical Information About Drug Abuse in Fresno County, California While Trust for America 's Health reported the state of California has the 15th lowest fatality rate (10.6 out of every 100,000 people) from drug overdose, the number is quite misleading considering the vast population of the state.
In Tennessee, the number one abused substance is prescription opioids, and drug-related crimes have increased 33% in the last ten years. Opioid overdoses affect everyone, and the cost to society is huge. “In the United States, prescription opioid abuse costs were about $55.7 billion in 2007. Of this amount,
As age increase, so does cancer risks, with individuals over 65 making up 60% of cancer diagnoses (Berger et al., 2006). Radiation therapy is utilized in over 50% of cancers in the United States unfortunately there is a much higher incidence of death in low income underdeveloped countries where there is a shortage of access to radiation therapy. In 2012, there were a reported 14 million new cases of cancer worldwide, and estimated to reach 24.5 million by 2030 (Atun et al., 2015).
I am regarding the Ensuring Access to Clinical Trials Act of 2015 for Rare Diseases. H.R. 209 [114th] I am writing you to ask that you help pass the new bill. The cruel disease Cystic Fibrosis (a life-threatening, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and progressively limits the ability to breathe) effects about 30,000 people living with Cystic Fibrosis (70,000 worldwide), approximately 1,000 new cases of Cystic Fibrosis are diagnosed each year. In the past two years I have met
