In Christian County, the range of births is 79 per 1,000 females. This is a very serious matter. Childbirth is one of the leading causes of death in teenage girls. About 70,000 young mothers die each year because their bodies were not physically ready for parenthood. The baby is less likely to survive.

Premature babies are usually placed in the intensive care unit (ICU). (March of dimes) Respiratory distress syndrome is a very common disorder that almost all infants that are born before 28 weeks end up having. A premature infant may have issues breathing problems due to not fully developed lungs, so they are not able to provide them selfs with enough oxygen to breathe. If the infant 's lungs lack a substance called surfactant, what this does is doesn 't allows their lungs to expand. This is a disorder that rarely occurs with infants that serve a full term inside the womb.
The number of persons over the age of 65 will double by 2030. The older population may also present with comorbidities that demand more physician services. Of the 83 million people over age 62, 14 million will have diabetes, and 21 million will be obese. However, first year enrollment in medical schools has declined every year since 1980.Other conditions that will drive demand for physician services include rates of heart disease and cancer, two of the leading causes of death in the U.S. It is projected that the shortage will most affect the primary care sector of physician services.
CAUSES A baby 's heart forms during the first 8 weeks in the mother 's womb. Sometimes something goes wrong and things do not form like they should. This does not happen often. Transposition of the great arteries occurs in about 20 to 30 of every 100,000 newborns. The cause is usually not known, but some conditions (called risk factors) increase the chances that a baby will be born with the condition.
The Nova “Dying to be Thin”, video discusses anorexia and bulimia and how it impacts the lives and health of those who suffer from these conditions. I also watched the YouTube video “The Starving Art” both videos focused on the high demands of being a ballerina and the unrealistic expectation of thinness and how the industry is trying to adapt to the challenge. According to the Mayo Clinic there are 8 million people that suffer from the anorexia which is a “36% increase every 5 year since the 1950’s” and 3 out of every 100 girls will develop anorexia or bulimia and 10% of them will die from the condition. Anorexia nervosa “an eating disorder characterized by excessive with loss, an irrational fear of gaining weight, and distorted body self-perception”
Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) which is also identified as cot death is the sudden, unforeseen and unexplained death of an apparently well baby. In the UK, just under 300 babies die suddenly and unpredictably every year. This statistic may sound shocking, but SIDS is scarce and the risk of your baby dying from it is low. Most deaths happen in the course of the first six months of a baby’s life. Infants born too early or with a low birthweight are at bigger risk.
You don’t know it 's Alzheimer’s until it hits you right in the face. Millions of people have Alzheimer’s. This forces other people such as family members or nurses to have to help many hours of the day, because the patients of Alzheimer’s can’t do things by themselves. Since the Baby Boomers of the 60s were born, there will be double the elders by the year 2050.People who haven’t experiences Alzheimer’s don’t realize how blessed they are. Alzheimer’s is a an awful disease.
Since the late 20th century, postpartum depression has affected “about 20% of women after giving birth” (Kalat 2008, pg. 440), but truly many more women than that suffer from this kind of depression. Postpartum depression can be moderate or severe in these women – whether it occurs up to three months after delivery of all the way up until a year after giving birth. The hormonal and non-hormonal changes in women is usually the signs that women show that they are leading into a depression. These women go through changes in their bodies during pregnancy, their social life, and most of all their worries about their ability to be a mother.
“It was the best of times; it was the worst of times.” The summer before sixth grade I discovered I had a severe case of Scoliosis. I had an 80 degree curve in addition to my spine being twisted. However; the most devastating thing about it was not fixable with a brace. My pre-teen life consisted of copious amounts of MRI’s, consultations, and doctors appointments. During my consultations, I had the choice of the “big” surgery, where they fix it all at once, or the multiple surgeries where the surgeon would fix one vertebrae every six months.
Stroke may be somewhat unlikely to happen in children but when it does happen it has a significant impact because it can cause morbidity and mortality. Children’s strokes can present differently than adult. Also according to the “Pediatric Stroke: A Review”, “The reported incidence rate of both ischemic and hemorrhagic pediatric stroke ranges from 1.2 to 13 cases per 100,000 children under 18 years of age”(Tsze & Valente 1). Nevertheless, Pediatric CVA is more familiar than we can imagine, because of the misdiagnoses. In one report, it is said that 19 out of 45 children with a stroke did not obtain the accurate diagnosis until 15 hours to 3 months after initial presentation.
Every day in this country, 9000 healthcare workers sustain a disabling injury while performing job-related tasks and many of these unfortunate health care workers are registered nurses. Sometime these injuries can be debilitating, career-ending and life altering. They can result to lost work time or sometimes permanent disability. The Bureau of Labor and Statistics in 2006 first started to survey non-fatal injuries in the workplace and revealed that one of the highest rates were among nursing staff. An estimated 12% of nurses leave nursing annually because of back injuries and more than half complain of chronic back pain.
