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.
Title: TORSION OF A NON GRAVID UTERUS Abstract Torsion of a non gravid uterus is a rare but potentially fatal event. It may cause irreversible ischemic damage to the uterus leading to rapid clinical deterioration. The rarity of the condition and its non specific clinical presentation make the clinical diagnosis difficult. Here we describe a case of torsion uterus in a 55 year old postmenopausal lady who presented in emergency with acute abdomen.
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
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-
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.
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
There are numerous parts for cardiovascular ultrasound throughout potentially cardiotoxic cancer treatment regimens. Primarily, prior to potentially cardiotoxic chemotherapy, echocardiography can safeguard that patients do not already have diminished cardiac function. Subsequently, throughout chemotherapy, cardiovascular ultrasound can monitor ventricular function to eliminate chemotherapy-induced dysfunction. Preceding, the follow-up treatment, cardiovascular ultrasound can regulate new symptoms that are potentially caused from cardiac disease.
The expected outcomes are standards against which nurse judges if goals have been met. Evaluation of client response to nursing care requires the use of evaluative measure simply as the reassessment of patient symptoms. Vital signs and auscultation of breath sounds. Observation of client skill performance and discussion of how they feel. Lab results such as chest x-ray to confirm whether pneumonia diagnosis is still present.
From these functions, the required data needed was inclination, angular velocity and linear acceleration. For inclination, we directly used the Euler vector function which gives data in 0-359 ͦ. For angular velocity, vector gyroscope function was used. This function directly gives data in rad⁄sec which was required for finding angular velocity of the sensor. Finally, for linear acceleration, function called vector linear acceleration was used. Figure below shows the VECTOR-EULER function used for getting the required inclination values from the sensor.
