• He labeled symptomatology, surgical treatment, physical findings and prognosis of thoracic empyema that was related to chest cavity in the linings. • His teachings stayed relevant until today to students of pulmonary medicine and surgery. • Firstly, he made documents on chest surgery, the finding and the techniques while crude ( the use of lead pipes that were used to drain chest walls abscess) are still usable. • Hippocratic School of Medicine mentioned and described well the ailments of the rectum of the human and the treatments related, despite the poor theory of medicine at that time at the school. • Some believed that Hemorrhoids was caused by excess bile and phlegm but the Hippocratics treated it in advanced ways.
The word got around about the March of Dimes during the war years by the Radio, Hollywood, and the president’s personal appeal. (Rose) According to the March of Dimes website the original mission of the March of Dimes was accomplished and then the foundation was then able to turn its focus on the prevention of birth defects and infant mortality. The March of Dimes has led the way to genetic testing and newborn screens. They have also educated medical professionals and the public about the best practices for a healthy
Heart rate is a measurement used in a variety of studies for a variety of reasons. The heart’s function is solely to pump blood around the body, so nutrients can be transported and used where they are needed1(p360). Heart rate has been shown to have connections to and be an indicator of general health and abilities thus it is an appropriate variable to consider3,4. The ECG is a trusted and accurate machine used in many studies to determine the heart rate of an individual5,6,7. It has been used as a screening tool for Sudden Cardiac Death with controversial success5.
Career development My current position as a fellow in the Division of Endocrinology has provided me a tremendous research opportunity and added to my enthusiasm to become an academic researcher in the field of beta-cell proliferation and regeneration. Under the guidance of my mentors, I started early in my fellowship training to explore that field by studying the prognostic outcome of auto islet cell transplantation in patients with chronic pancreatitis who undergo total pancreatectomy. Successful completion of that project was the starting point that prompted me to choose Dr. George Gittes, who is a well-known expert in that field. My long-term goal is to become an independent researcher in the field of beta cell proliferation and regeneration,
This method is used for measuring mechanical activity of the heart like the opening and closing movement of valves during each cardiac cycle to estimate the fetal heart rate signal. (10) It uses ultra-sounded technology by bouncing sound waves off the baby and return a representation of the fetal heartbeat rate (3). It depends on generating ultrasound beam with frequency of 1 or 2 MHz (the most common frequency are used in the range (1-2.3MHz). (11) Although, it’s intended for use by health care professionals, it’s becoming more and more popular for personal uses. However, the FDA recommends against their home use, citing possible harm to a developing fetus.
Dr. Verschuer was highly known for his work with twins, and this is where Mengele found his fascination for twins. Mengele went on to earn his medical degree in 1937 (Museum). In 1938 Mengele wanted a part of the Nazi action and joined the SS. The SS or Schutzstaffel was responsible for population policy and settlement, identification of ethnicity, security, and intelligence collection and analysis. In June of 1940 Mengele was drafted into the Army, and he volunteered for medical service.
Inner organs are palpated, or felt, to decide whether they are amplified. Since hypertension can make harm the veins in the eyes, the eyes might be checked with an instrument called an ophthalmoscope. The doctor will search for thickening, narrowing, or hemorrhages in the veins. A trunk x beam can distinguish an expanded heart, other vascular (heart) irregularities, or lung sickness. An electrocardiogram (ECG) measures the electrical action of the heart.
I thought that this would be a great way to develop a better understanding of the career and what it takes to care for others. The STNA classes I completed to receive certification and the work as a patient aid that followed helped me confirm that I was making the right choice with respect to my career choice. I worked as a personal care aid in an assisted living home to gain knowledge and experience and I am extremely grateful for that opportunity. Working in the health care field provided a chance to care for the elderly and watch nurses do their jobs. I saw at first-hand the impact of diseases including, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, but more importantly, I witnessed the impact of empathy and good care had on a patient and their families.
While World War II was occurring, scientists and doctors were discovering and inventing new medical advances to help soldiers who were fighting in the war. Some of the most helpful medicines today were invented during World War II. These include sulfanilamide, penicillin, atabrine, plasma, and morphine. Sulfanilamide and penicillin proved very useful for their ability to kill deadly, harmful bacteria. “Sulfanilamide was first mass distributed in 1936 to fight not only strep infections but also meningitis and pneumonia, which had been killing and weakening tens of thousands of

There are three interesting aspects of the development of prosthetics: the science and technology behind the prosthetic, the medical advancements of the patient, and the psychological impacts following losing a limb. The first aspect of prosthetics is the science and technology behind the prosthetic. The science and technology is the first aspect of prosthetics.
From the Kaiser Permanente career website, I was delighted to learn about the RN I position at Kaiser Permanente Oakland Medical Center in the Medical Telemetry Department. Kaiser Permanente is a leader in our nation’s healthcare system and has the standard for promoting wellness and disease prevention in our communities. As a result, I am excited about the possibility of being part an organization that so deeply shares the same passion as I of providing holistic and compassionate health care. After obtaining my first degree in Biological Sciences from the University of California, Irvine and assisting nurses and CNAs as a Clinical Care Extender, I became inspired to pursue a career in nursing. I obtained my RN license July 2015 and graduated
•A pacemaker is a small device that 's placed in the chest or abdomen to help control abnormal heart rhythms. This device uses low-energy electrical pulses to prompt the heart to beat at a normal rate. •Pacemakers are used to treat arrhythmias. Arrhythmias are problems with the rate or rhythm of the heartbeat. During an arrhythmia, the heart can beat too fast, too slow, or with an irregular
My dad 's achievements are a constant reminder of what I will do once I get to college and for what is up ahead.. After college, my next step is medical school. I plan on furthering my research in how mental illnesses affect large communities, with my newly earned M. D/Ph.D. in Psychiatry and Biology. With the knowledge gained from medical school, I intend to give back to my community by opening a practice in my hometown of Gary, Indiana. As I reflect on the challenges that I have faced within my community, I am grateful.
The two main pathways this organization utilizes to accomplish their goals are education and research. The American Heart Association offers many free, educational lectures throughout the year that include lectures by cardiologists and real life inspirational stories given by the actual patients. I have found the stories that patients have share to be inspiring and motivated me to do more. CPR guidelines and teaching is another area that the American Heart Association greatly influences. If you have taken a CPR test or read about CPR this information probably came from this organization or was greatly influenced by this organization.
Going to undergrad in Colorado Springs gave me a flavor for the unique city it is. I still have many friends who have chosen to stay in Colorado Springs, and I am excited to contribute to the city in the future alongside them. Colorado Springs is a second home for me. I am also familiar with the population beyond my college campus from volunteering at Memorial Hospital Central as well as working in classrooms all around city. With the support network I already have there, it would be an excellent location to study for a year of medical school.
