In conclusion, Zika virus is a mosquito transmitted infection that originated from Africa. Discovered in Zika Forest near Lake Victoria in Uganda, Africa almost seventy years ago on April 18, 1947 on a rhesus monkey, Rhesus 766. It is discovered in the Rockefeller Foundation Program because of the research about the jungle yellow fever. By then, they brought Rhesus 766 where they examine the febrile monkey and pass sample of serum from the rhesus to mice where they found out after 10 days that the mice that have been inoculated were sick, and a filterable and transmissible agent was found naming it the Zika Virus (ZIKV).
The Heritage Assessment Tool is used by clinicians to assist them in understanding a patient's ethnic, religious and cultural background. The writer completed three Heritage Assessment Tools interviews where two of the people were of different backgrounds and one of similar background to the writer. For health care workers to provide competent care, it is important to have an understanding of the barriers to adherence for the patient. Patients may hold strong to a belief or ritual that may affect their health care. Through open and honest dialogue this information can be obtained, to assist the clinician in providing care for the person as a whole. The Heritage Assessment Tool provides the clinician
It was a rainy day. Unlike the previous observation, I did not get the fun ride with my professor. I had to catch the Uber and I could arrive at school by 8. I walked into the classroom and I could meet Ms. B’s class students, Ms. B and two of teachers aids. All students were eating something in class for their breakfast including two of teacher assistants. Two of teacher assistants were sharing a bag of hot Cheetos. Many students were interested in the tempting looking snack hot Cheetos rather than an animal cracker that they got from Ms. B. Teacher assistants refused to share their snack with students and I believe that it was because the hot Cheetos is not good for children.
Gwacham et al., (2011) hypothesis is AdvoCareSpark will increase the average anaerobic power in NCCA football players, reduce the time of the football players, and lessen the fatigue index of the football players after each sprint test. Gwacham et al., (2011) used a double-blind, counterbalanced cross-over design. The participants were tested twice. One time they drank the energy drink the other time they had the placebo. The subjects were twenty male student-athletes from Utah State University football team who were twenty years old. They were six feet one inch tall and weighed between two hundred and twenty-one pounds and two hundred and seventy pounds. The athletes learned how to do the Running-based Anaerobic Sprint Test (RAST) a week before the study. They were told to avoid alcohol and other stimulants; also, to keep a normal routine before the experiment, and sleep between six to eight hours the night before the test.
Pneumolabyrinth is the presence of air in the vestibular and/ or the cochlear organs due to a pathological communication between the middle and inner air.1-2 Pneumolabyrinth caused by a temporal bone fracture was first described in 1988 by Nurre et al.3 Traumatic pneumolabyrinth secondary to temporal bone fracture is a rare entity with only 15 cases reported thus far.1 Neurotological symptoms following a head trauma usually necessitate a computed tomography imaging (CT).4 Pneumolabyrinth is managed either conservatively or by surgical internvention.

This assessment measure allows the client the opportunity to enact how she would typically behave in situations which she fear the most, such as the fear of abandonment. The therapist is able to play the role realistically while observing the client’s behavior. This assessment not only provides important information regarding client’s behavior, but also assessing her social skills and assertive behavior. Based on the information, Robin’s assertive behavior can appear to be aggressive as she continue to alienate her friends and family. Her inability to understand how to be assertive as oppose to being aggressive towards others, has led too much of Robin’s distress. Role playing will not reveal client’s true behavior, but provide insight for treatment.

When I got to my clinical site there was already a student in the office. He had been hit a few inches above his pubic bone with a large block of wood, in a woodworking class.

Amy called his mom and explained what happened, they decided it was best for him to go home and maybe see a doctor. When the students mother came in he showed her where he had gotten hit and explained that the cut didn’t hurt but his entire right leg did.
Zellweger syndrome is an autosomal and recessive disease. It is part of one a 4 disease of disorders known as peroxisomal biogenesis disorders. It is caused by absence of peroxisomes, which remove the body of toxic substances in the liver, brain, and kidneys. The most common features the zellweger syndrome patients include swell liver, high levels of copper and iron in the blood, and vision disturbances. This disorder results from the inheritance by 2 mutations genes for one of the receptors (PXR1) needed to import proteins into the peroxisome. Then the peroxisome enzymes become unable to enter the peroxisome and long chain fatty acids cannot be metabolized and hydrogen peroxide just stable to affect the cell. A baby with Zellweger syndrome will die within six months to a year after it is born. Statistics indicate that 1 in 50,000 babies are diagnosed with Zellweger syndrome. Today there is no cure for ZS just some drugs to relieve symptoms. The main treatment for this condition will be based on care and supportive care from parents and health care centers for make a good life for ZS children.
