She had her tonsils removed at the age of 19 and had a fairly significant postoperative hemorrhage 5 days out. She also reports heavy menstrual cycles. On further inquiry with her prior losses she had one D & C and reports that she had bleeding for 3 days after and at least one week with her spontaneous loss. She has never required a blood transfusion. I informed her that testing for bleeding disorders such as von Willebrand, which is the most common, is difficult in pregnancy because all of these factors are upregulated.
Then he was kept for observation for 3 days. The patient developed fever again (39oC) and parenteral paracetamol was able to decrease his temperature temporary for only 2 hours and kept rising again to 39oC.

CLINICAL FEATURES The term BMS refers to chronic pain condition in absence of any visible mucosal abnormality or organic disease. It is defined by symptoms that persist for a long time. The pain episodes usually occur continuously for at least 4-6months and may last for 12 years or more with an average duration of 3.4years. The most common complaint is unremitting oral mucosal pain in association with dysgeusia and xerostomia. And no signs of lesions or other detectable changes in the oral mucosa even in painful areas.
According to the WHO, one of the major point of the new standards is that it presumed breastfeeding as a "biological norm" and the new standards can detecting, measuring, monitoring and evaluate both under-nutrition and obesity which is very related to public health in both developed and developing countries (WHO, 2006 ). Table xx: Key anthropometric measures and indicators provided in recent WHO and US CDC growth references/ standards This table indicates the anthropometric measurement included in the three sets of recent growth standards and the first two are commonly used by people in different countries and “v” indicates available measures
The vaginal mucosa is absent of glands. The vaginal epithelium consists of three rather arbitrary layers of cells – superficial flat cells, intermediate cells and basal cells – and estrogen induces the intermediate and superficial cells to fill with glycogen. The superficial cells exfoliate continuously and basal cells replace them.  Under the influence of maternal estrogen, newborn females have a thick stratified squamous epithelium for two to four weeks after birth. After that, the epithelium remains thin with only a few layers of cells without glycogen until puberty, when the epithelium thickens and glycogen containing cells are formed again, under the influence of the girl's rising estrogen levels.
Board of Directors. Clinical Pathways and Algorithms for Delivery of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition Support in Adults, Silver Spring, MD: American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition; 1998:4. Subjective Global Assessment As a nutrition screening tool, SGA relies on history of weight and dietary change, gastrointestinal symptoms, functional capacity, effects of disease on nutritional requirements and physical appearance. Based on these parameters, patients are classified as; well nourished, moderate or suspected malnutrition or severe malnutrition.

Merchant inform the readers about the main causes of obesity and ways of prevention of this chronic disorder. The authors start the article with the definition of childhood obesity and methods of measuring body fat, including underwater weighting, multi-frequency bioelectrical impedance analysis, magnetic resonance imaging, body mass index waist circumference, and skin fold thickness. The authors also define causes of obesity that include an increased calorie and fat intake and the decline in physical activity. According to the authors, the most effective ways to prevent the disorder are to create a healthy environment, encourage physical activity among children, restrict television viewing, and make some changes in the food
The nonattendance of a menstrual period for no less than one year is a pointer that a lady is transitioning from a conceptive to a non-regenerative stage in life. This shows she has entered menopause. For most ladies, menopause begins around 51. The move starting with one stage then onto the next doesn’t occur without any forethought. It’s somewhat steady and is an alternate ordeal for every lady.
In the current study, a new treatment (bladder distension) was compared with the currently available treatment (misoprostol). This study aimed to reveal that uterine straightening by bladder distension was not inferior to misoprostol in relieving the pain experienced by postmenopausal patients during office hysteroscopy. At the time of study design, there were no studies in literature that reported the use of vaginal misoprostol (400µg) 12 hours before office hysteroscopy in postmenopausal patients. Available studies either included heterogeneous population of patients (postmenopausal patients and patients of reproductive age) or investigated different regimens of misoprostol administration in postmenopausal patients undergoing office hysteroscopy[6, 7,
They were collected from the Outpatient Clinic of the Dermatology and Venereology Department, Tanta University Hospital.

The purpose of this article was to assess dental hygienist beliefs on treating pregnant patients and assess the amount of education they have on the subject. Perinatal care among oral health care professionals has a focus since maternal periodontal disease was linked to preterm low birth weight babies. The authors wanted to examine hygienist views on the importance of oral care being apart of prenatal care, thoughts on treating pregnant patients, and knowledge level of appropriate procedures. Emails containing the questionnaire were sent to all Michigan Dental Hygiene Association members (MDHA). A total of 150 dental hygienists (over 98% were white females) members of MDHA completed the survey.
