Gall bladder cancer: The rates below are based on the stage of the cancer at the time of diagnosis(published in the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual in 2010). Incidence of gall bladder cancer is steadily rising even approaching 20% in Ganga belt region. Below table showing how much fetal Stage Relative 5-Year Survival Rate 0 80% I 50% II 28% IIIA 8% IIIB 7% IVA 4% IVB 2% Cervix cancer: In women, cervical cancer is second most common worldwide, next only to breast cancer. In India, cervical cancer is the most common cancer especially among rural based female. One woman dies of cervical cancer every 8 minutes in India.
About 420,000 childhood cancer survivors live in the U.S., with much more around the world (St. Jude Children 's Research Hospital) this shows that cancer is one major diagnosed disease found in children under the age of 15. Cancer patients will have long-lasting chronic conditions during treatment. Plus 0.35% of children get cancer and is always being overlooked. Childhood cancer research is vastly and consistently underfunded. Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under the age of 15 in the U.S.One in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they are 20 years old.Every year, an estimated 250,000+ new cases of cancer affect children under the age of 20 worldwide.Two-thirds of
Even after menopause, the rate of men’s death from heart disease is the highest than women’s even it increase every year. Main cause of the heart disease also because of age. People who die from coronary heart disease more than 83% are 65 or older. Older women are more likely to die of heart attacks within a few weeks of the attack than older men. 4.1.2) Obesity
However, those who perceive autocratic team leadership style witnessed more frequently errors than other. On the other hand, preferred working style also affects the occurrence of errors. All of those who preferred working individually encountered more frequently errors as a result of teamwork-related skills than those preferred working on teams because the nature of medical environments requires working on teams to best satisfy patient’s
According to a statement from his widow, Susan Schneider, “Williams was not sober but struggling with depression, anxiety and the early stages of Parkinson’s disease when he died”. This evidence shows that depression is a serious illness that can lead to suicide. It is estimated that 400 million people in the world suffer from depression and there are about 3,000 reported suicide deaths every day. The World Health Organisation (WHO) predicts that depression will be the second form of health problem after heart disease. The figures
Introduction Outpatient or office hysteroscopy is an important tool for diagnosis and treatment of intrauterine lesions. Office hysteroscopy requires no operation theater facilities or general anaesthesia and therefore it is more convenient to the patients and more cost-effective than inpatient hysteroscopy. Office hysteroscopy is usually accompanied by some degree of discomfort or pain. The majority of patients experience mild pain and few patients experience severe pain and vasovagal reaction . Menopausal status, absence of vaginal delivery and history of previous cesarean section are the main risk factors for severe or intolerable pain during office hysteroscopy[2-3].
As GPs are community-based, they are generally easier to access. This could be seen as 72% of the New Zealand adults in 2013 were able to get the appointment on the same or next day when they were sick. But even then cost is the main barrier to access the primary care in New Zealand as 21% of the NZ adults experienced cost as a barrier to access healthcare in 2013. This shows that even though gatekeeping provides a wider access to healthcare for 72%, there is still a significant amount of people where cost is still a barrier (Mossialos et al.,
It is said to be the 5th leading cause of death and an estimated 25000 people die every year because of it. South Africa has one of the highest alcohol consumption rates across the world. The Cape has one of the biggest problems with alcohol consumption and liver
Approximately 100,000 heart valve replacements are performed each year in the U.S. It is estimated that patients requiring heart valve replacements will be tripled from 290,000 in 2003 to 850,000 by 2050 (Yacoub and Takkenberg 2005). It is estimated that 5 million patients in India are suffering from heart valve disease and every year 50, 000 new patients are diagnosed with heart valve disease. Heart valves may become impaired either due to tightening of the valve preventing forward flow of blood which
In nurse’s perspective, the poor and inconsistent of pain assessment can lead to unrelieved pain and reduce patient mobility, resulting in complications such as deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolus, and pneumonia (Ed. Caltorn, 1997). Postsurgical complications related to inadequate pain management will affect the length of hospitalization; the risk of readmissions, and increase the cost care of treatment. Somehow, a poor documentation of current status pain assessment will delay the intervention and responses to the care plan (Gordon, 2005). Thus, to overcome this situation in clinical practice, The American Pain Society (2005), created the phrase “Pain: the fifth vital sign” to increased awareness of the important in pain management
Budgetary constraints are currently limiting our ability to hire more healthcare provdiers, so an ability to utilize licensed caregivers more efficiently would be helpful. By installing a pneumatic delivery system, the hospital system could have the licensed caregivers focus more time on providing excellent care to our patients. There are some noted concerns that using a pneumatic tube system for laboratory specimen delivery may increase the risk of hemolysis in a blood sample (Lima-Oliveira et al., 2014). However, this risk of hemolysis does not pose a substantial harm to patients and is clinically insignificant in the vast majority of cases. This is particularly true in the case of the Alvin C. York Medical Center as the units that would utilize the pneumatic tube system are units that do not serve patients with acute medical conditions.
There are approximately 350 million individuals living with DM worldwide. In the United States, the rate of T2DM has increased in individuals of AA descent with the prevalence rate escalating in the past 30 years and has quadrupled. AAs above 20 years of age are 1.7 times more likely to be diagnosed with DM than the Caucasians. They accounted for 10.8% of all individual with diabetes (CDC, 2015). A comparison of rates of diagnosis of diabetes mellitus by ethnicity and race disclosed that in 2010 the AAs diagnosed for diabetes were 13.2% of 29.1 million Americans (ADA, 2014).
The United States is facing an epidemic. As many are aware, prescription opioid abuse is a problem across the country. Within the last ten years, the United States has seen an alarming increase of opioid overdoses. Prescription painkillers claim the lives of 120 people every day, and approximately 6,700 people visit the emergency room for opioid abuse. In the current state, prescription drug overdoses claim more lives than car accidents.
Life expectancy has increased by thirty years during the twentieth century. It is “the average number of years a population of a certain age would be expected to live, given a set of age-specific death rates in a given year (Health People.gov).” Within different ethnic groups, “women have a higher life expectancy than men.” Also, life expectancy “provides global information about disparities (Kominski, G. (2014).” There are gaps between men and women, and between blacks and whites. According to Changing the U.S. Health Care System, Latino females have the highest life expectancy rate, and African American man had the lowest life expectancy rate.
suicide rates are double, maybe even triple Civil War rates. There were more documented military suicides in 2010 alone than the entire four years of the Civil War, as 295 service members committed suicide in 2010 versus the 278 documented suicides in Union soldiers during the entire Civil War with force sizes being relatively equal during both wars. Researchers have tried to identify exactly why there has been a dramatic increase in PTSD in modern times versus the past, but a variety of factors complicate the issue with any number of stressors capable of being the culprit, from military training, to overseas deployment, to the transition back to civilian life, to combat itself. These numbers reflect a dangerous crisis as it demonstrates a need for care and services for not only the new generation of veterans, but an increased need for care on top of the necessary aid provided to Vietnam War Veterans who continue to suffer from PTSD as well, even today. These statistics thus reflect a problem for not only the military service members of today, but the service members of tomorrow as well, as whatever factors increase the risk of PTSD today will most likely increase the rate of veterans suffering from PTSD in years to come unless the reasons for this increase can be pinpointed and specifically
