Background and Purpose: Microperc using all-seeing needle is associated with reduce tract-related morbidity. The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness and safety of microperc in children. Patients and Methods: From July 2010 to August 2014, a total of 17 patients with renal stones underwent microperc at our institution. Renal access was achieved through 4.85-Fr (16 gauge) all-seeing needle under direct vision and fragmentation with 200 µm holmium:YAG laser fiber. The patient’s demographic data, operating time, hemoglobin drop, complications (Clavien-Dindo), and length of hospital stay were prospectively studied.

Creating a Health Screening Initiative in today health is an important issue to prevent disease apparition. One of the goals in creating a health screening initiative is to identify the cause and the risk factors of any disease that can cause a financial burdens and decrease the quality of life. Reason of Choosing the Topic of Screening There are many diseases that are affecting people’s lives like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, sexual transmission diseases all types, psychiatric disorders, and much more.

We wondered if we had had to intervene early with surgery, in order to rapidly eradicate the disease, but at the moment the evidences point to intervene only in case of persistence of the disease despite maximal medical therapy. Further evidences are needed to acquire more knowledge about the better treatment, especially to identify patients at risk of relapse, in order to rapidly change on surgical option rather than continue for a long time with antibiotic therapy. We hope that this event will make a contribution in this
Patient Safety Assignment Marwa Ghabra U00020161 Patient safety blood transfusion Assignment What is patient safety? Patient safety is defined as a new healthcare discipline that emphasizes the reporting, analysis, and prevention of medical error that often leads to adverse healthcare events Case: Subjective: a 35 year old married female comes to the clinic to review her thyroid function tests and CBC that were ordered as part of her routine annual periodic health check-up. Objective: TFT results were normal. CBC results though showed a Hg of 6.6. pale skin, lining mucosa, conjunctiva and nail beds. No murmurs heard on auscultation.
She also has chronic hypertension and is on chronic medication. The patient also has recurrent urinary tract infections. This case should provide a better understanding of how these conditions coexist and what their effects are as well as how management of these conditions should be approached which will help advance our knowledge in the pre-hospital setting. It may provide important information on how these conditions overlap and interlink with each other. It may also provide important information on the endocrine system which will help in that specific field of medicine.
The patient was discharged after 24 hours, to be followed up for the next 2 months at the first, second, and fourth weeks, then at the end of the second month. Statistical analysis Data were analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS version 16). Values are shown as mean ± SD, range, percentage, and number. Statistical analysis was performed with the use of the Mann-Whitney test and Wilcoxon Signed Ranks test for the VAS and morphine consumption changed from the baseline. Statistical significance was assigned as P value less than 0.05.
The more traditional framework that would have been used would have been the scientific biomedical framework. This framework is a model that does not take into consideration the psychological and social factors which may be contributing to a person’s illness; the illness is simply seen in biological terms. This ideology is far outdated, and one can see this simply by reading the WHO’s most recent definition of health, mentioned in the opening of this paper. This model views medications as the resolution to all illnesses, however we know that in today’s society, medications can often cause further problems- for example the creation of superbugs such as MRSA in the hospital system, bugs that as a result of overexposure to antibiotics have now become immune to the medication’s effects, and can therefore be detrimental to a patient’s health. By choosing to concentrate merely on biological impacts on health, a vast array of other factors, such as the environment, the money invested in public health care systems and many more, are ignored.
What I would like to see in the future is simply more awareness and attention addressed to diabetes. So that people suffering from it don’t need to constantly answer to all these questions, so that we diabetics can feel safer knowing that there are people out there that knows what to do when we are incapable of taking care of ourselves and so that we hopefully can prevent further complications and decrease the amount of people being diseased of diabetes. And in a few years see a growth in the fundraising for diabetes so that we can finally put an end to all the pain coming from this
