The reason for the syndrome is unknown, but researchers think that disruption of the development of the fetus leads to the problems to develop. The precise cause of Prune-Belly syndrome isn't known. Ulcerative colitis is thought to be an auto-immune condition. While constipation is a rather basic digestive problem, it is going to occur differently for different folks, simply because no 2 people have the same kind of bowel movement.

After sitting in the hall for five hours, David complained that he needed to lie down. The ER staff, who had been trying to move him to a VA hospital with no luck, finally transferred him by ambulance to a local nursing home. David had a massive stroke shortly after being admitted to the nursing home and died six weeks later (Fremgen, 2016, p. 161). a. Does there appear to be negligence in this case?
At the early stage of CHD, most people exhibit some symptoms or discomfort but some people might not have any symptom at all. Commonly, the symptoms of CHD include chest pain (angina pectoris), short of breath, dizziness and irregular heartbeat. In this study, there were eight risk factors being considered in the risk function of CHD. 1.2.1 Age and Sex In United States, CHD is the leading cause of death for both women and men. CHD is markedly more common in men than in women (Jousilahti, 1999).
Strains of smallpox should be eliminated and here is why. The resurgence of infectious diseases has been a huge problem in the 21st century. Imagine what the world would look like with the return of one of the globes most brutal disease; A disease like smallpox that could spread so easily through the air. Smallpox had both a high prevalence and incidence rate in the United States and many other parts of the world. Quantitative data and statistics display that about 30 percent of people with smallpox died from the disease and many others developed other problems.
INTRODUCTION Giardia Lamblia is a protozoan parasite. About 200 million people had infected in the world but this value just an estimate since that only 500 000 of new cases reported in a year. Previously, higher prevalence of occurance in the developing countries (20% and 30%) compare to developed countries (2% and 5%) (Wilson, 1984; Farthing, 1994).. Malaysia was considered as the developing country. Giardia lamblia may infect human through ingesting of it cysts. Hence, people with low hygiene and contaminated water supply have high risk of being infected.
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
Phantom pain is described as shooting, stabbing, boring, squeezing, throbbing and burning. Recent studies report the prevalence of PLP to be more common among upper limb amputees than lower limb amputees. It was also reported to be more common among females than males. The phantom pain have been reported in different body parts including eyes, teeth, tongue, nose, breast, penis, bowel and bladder but the limb amputation has most common occurrence. Phantom pain and sensation have two peak periods of onset first within month and second a year after amputation.
Information conveyed through the nervous system moves along networks of cells called neurons. These neurons can only send information one way. Those transmitting to the brain are sensory neurons; those that transmit from the brain are known as motor neurons. The nervous system can suffer from a number of afflictions, including cancer (e.g., brain tumors). Other problems include multiple sclerosis, in which damaged nerves prevent signals from traveling along them, and meningitis, which causes an inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord.
If a person touches a working wire, with no protection on, they might not be able to let go off of it, because of the current’s affect on a human body. Currents that are less than 0.02 amps can make feelings from tingling to strong pain. The range of 0.03 to 0.07 can stop a person from breathing. The most dangerous currents are from 0.1 to 0.2 amps. These currents can kill a person, by affecting their heart, which stops blood from flowing to the rest of the body.
