Today was another busy but fulfilling day. I got checked off with my head-to-toe assessment. I followed my regular nurse, Nurse Clea. Since I mostly knew the routines of my patients, I started by doing rounds. I checked my patients one by one to see if they were stable and responsive. With Nurse Dre Dre, the night nurse, I got to do suctioning, tracheotomy care and start feedings. I feel like I’m getting confidently effective with my communication skills everyday that my I’m learning and enhancing my nursing skills. I was able to educate a family member who was not wearing protective equipment inside an isolation room the importance of wearing one to prevent the spread of infections and promote wellness.
The medical field has been forever changed,thanks to a young woman named Elizabeth Holmes. She is the founder and CEO of Theranos. While she was studying at Stanford, Holmes was awarded a stipend to start a research program. Due to the unfortunate death of her uncle, she together with her college professor, created Theranos. Holmes created a way to collect blood with just a finger prick. Similar to the way people with diabetes check their blood sugar, Holmes found a way to diagnose diseases like cancer and high cholesterol. If I was with Elizabeth Holmes, the main thing I would ask is how Theranos is able to retrieve so much information with such a small sample of blood. Also, on the business end, how is Theranos able to keep their prices
Johnson's perception of pacemaker seems quite misleading, and gives us a sense as to he himself is not sure what exactly is a pacemaker. As he states "their genes instruct them to protect their mother, the same way their genes instruct them to forage for food"(Johnson,194). In this sense, couldn't genes be termed as pacemakers too as they are "instructing" the ants to protect their mother, and in reality, that really is what a pacemaker is, or in other words a central authority figure does, give instructions. Doesn't that evidently go against what he actually thinks of a pacemaker? To further complicate Johnson's perception, Sacks states "Yet the brain remains capable of making radical shifts in response to sensory deprivation"(Sacks,331). Making radical shifts gives us an indication that the brain could be termed as a pacemaker within us, as it controls what we do. Furthermore, genes and the brain have quite similar functions to carry out, which is giving out instructions to us, so in that regard both could be termed as pacemakers. The term pacemaker is indeed a very complex term and not as simple as it
Imagine entering your local food store and seeing that items most people eat everyday have been discontinued. Items such as coffee, apples, cucumbers and honey are no longer available to consumers. This may not be possible in our generation, but one day it could very well happen.
In his first issue, Paley concludes that being that there is proof of a watch/universe, someone or something had to have created it. But in efforts to prove one creator of the universe exists, he presents not one, but the many creators it took to make the watch. This would conclude to many gods having participated in the creation of the universe. According to philosophy 's definition of God, this conclusion rules out the characteristic of there being only one,

“Cooley 's detailed descriptions of what it was like to be in the operating room at crucial points in medical history offer a fascinating perspective on how far medical science has progressed in just a few decades. Dr. Denton Cooley and the Texas Heart Institute are responsible for much of that progress.”
Making use if blood/stool/saliva tests we can detect any form of instability in the body's biochemistry.
Dr. William Harvey Dobelle made the first functioning bionic eye by a brain implant although limited it’s better than no sight at all. He is also known for the breathing pacemaker which is the only FDA approved device for phrenic nerve pacing. I chose this inventor because I thought it is cool to be able to have the ability to see without your natural eye or eyes.

Gone are the days of small, simple medical laboratories. Located just behind the scenes of direct patient care, there are countless healthcare professionals working around the clock in order to provide patients and clinicians with critical diagnostic and prognostic information. Found in the dungeons of the hospital, there are a variety of specialties comprising laboratory medical sciences: Chemistry, Blood Bank, Cytology, Microbiology, and Surgical Pathology. These are just a few of the departments that are growing rapidly due to the demand of the population and evolving overnight with developments in technology. With all of the advancements ranging from microscopic stains to complex equipment, these fields need leaders that not only are familiar with the intricacies of laboratory medicine, but leaders who are well versed in running the

On this day October 24th, 2016 many events happened at Jessie Trice Community Health Center (JTCHC). As usual, I was exactly on time to start my clinical rotation at 8 am. My rounds were made in the clinic looking for something out of place and improvise with my assistance. A morning huddle was hold at the nursing station. Everyone met to listen to the points Joel Polanco, RN would present. Topics on improvements in the clinic related to patient-physician needs were discussed. I was really an active learner since those administrative aspects were managed by the nurse manager at the clinic. After the meeting, we talk about the patients and their needs, what I have seen in this community, what would be beneficial for the patients coming to JTCHC,
