The Swan-Ganz catheter has also been shown as a potential device for its explicit usage of applying drugs directly to the heart of the patient. The device is an accurate hemodynamic monitoring system. In medicine, this device is commonly used to detect mostly for cardiac and respiratory problems. The balloon of the catheter acts as a navigator through the blood vessels and into the heart. The Pulmonary Distal Lumen which is connected to the inflated balloon is wedged in between the blood vessels to detect the atrial pressure.
Perfusion : Perfusion is the process of a body delivering blood to a capillary bed in itsbiological tissue. The word is derived from the French verb "perfuser" meaning to "pour over or through". Tests verifying that adequate perfusion exists are a part of a patient's assessment process that are performed by medical or emergency personnel. The most common methods include evaluating a body's skin color, temperature, condition and capillary refill. Perfusionists employ artificial blood pumps to propel open-heart surgery patients' blood through their body tissue, replacing the function of the heart while the cardiac surgeon operates.
Most occurring SSI can be largely avoided with EBP approaches. These strategies have been implemented in many facilities. The attention to safer surgery, SSI prevention resulted in the development of World Health Organization (WHO) Surgical Safety Standards. The intention of this strategy is to demonstrate the significance of effective communication and teamwork to evidence-based health care to prevent SSI. I plan to influence change by adhering to the implemented quality checklist encouraging an overview of the list of surgical standards.
Angiography is the most commonly used technique to visualize the blood vessels with particular interest in the arteries, veins, and the heart chambers. This is traditionally done by injecting a radio-opaque contrast agent into the blood vessel and imaging using X-ray based techniques such as fluoroscopy. The image of the blood vessel thus obtained is called an angiogram or angiograph. Depending on the type of angiogram, access to the blood vessels is gained most commonly through the femoral artery to look at the left side of the heart and at the arterial system or through the jugular or femoral vein, to look at the right side of the heart and at the venous system. Using a system of guide wires and catheters, a type of contrast agent is added
A large part of the documentation is the facility's information form and health history questionnaire. 4. previous mammograms a. review prior to exam-Prior breast images may be pre-fetched to the workstation from radiology or hospital information systems for comparison. In some facilities this pre-fetching may be a manual process. The mammographer also should review prior mammograms to determine the densest part of the breast for proper AEC detector location, proper positioning techniques, and any potentional problem areas within the breast positioning/exam. b. verify for interpreting physician- In general, the mammographer should document all findings related to the patient's breast health and mammography visit, including findings the mammographer observes visually, those reported by the patient, and those identified through breast palpation.
(3) Central venous catheters can be inserted through a proximal central vein commonly the internal jugular, subclavian or femoral vein, or through a peripheral vein. The catheter is threaded through the vein till the tip reaches a large vein near the heart. The tip of the central venous catheter lies in the superior vena cava, the right atrium or the inferior vena cava. Central venous catheters are used for rapid administration of medications, fluids, blood products and parenteral nutrition to the patient. They are also used to measure central venous pressure.
Balu, T. Devi, et al , describes the image mining system that automates the diagnosis of acute appendicitis with significant time reduction. The experimentation methods, results of the testing using real data are detailed in this paper. The data set of 44 patients’ sonographic images collected from a reputed hospital in India has been used as input. The conclusion is that region based segmentation algorithm followed by Euclidean distance method yields accurate diagnosis of appendicitis. The developed sonographic image mining system to detected acute appendicitis yielded a sensitivity of 86% and specificity of
Technetium-99m is used in the blood or injected into patients systemic circulation so that it can be detected by medical equipment such as X-ray. Technetium exametazime under brand name of Ceretec which commonly perform radiolabel
