“I think for any relationship to be successful, there needs to be loving communication, appreciation, and understanding.” - Miranda Kerr. This quote represents everything about communication that did not happen in As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner. One of the themes in this book is one of miscommunication and family tension because of it, to understand this to its full extent you need to understand the reasons behind this tension including secrets, bad parenting and misunderstandings.
The bloodiest battle in American history, the Civil War which took place in 1860 through 1864, had many events, battles and hardships. The novel A Soldier 's Secret written by Marissa Moss, contains lots of historical accuracy but also holds a number of inaccuracies as well, in regards to women soldier’s, amputations and the main character Sarah Edmonds.
Amputation is the term used to describe the partial or complete loss of a portion of the body. Depending on the reason for amputation, it can impact activities, functions, and psychosocial adjustment. Although the term amputation is commonly associated with the loss of an extremity, it is also used to categorize the loss of other body parts (e.g. an earlobe or parts of the nose from frostbite). Amputation can result from trauma or it may be a surgically procedure utilized in the management of other conditions (e.g. amputating toes or the whole foot in the management of diabetes). Moreover, amputation is also the term to describe an absence of limbs at birth (e.g. born with nine toes; born without legs, etc.) (Falvo & Holland, 2018).
Brain science is hard to understand. Very hard. However, Dr. Norman Doidge describes the current understanding of brain plasticity by using relatable examples and comprehensible diction instead of arduous textbook style writing. In The Brain that Changes Itself, Doidge challenges the age-old belief that the brain's structure is concrete by providing countless experiments that prove the brain to be malleable.
In “Freak the Mighty” Kevin is featured as the supporting character, but with his strong personality and backstory due to his constant fighting against Morquio syndrome, he is certainly the most interesting character out of them all. Kevin suffered from mostly all the symptoms caused by Morquio syndrome, including dwarfism and heart problems requiring him to walk around with crunches and leg braces. Due to his disease, Kevin is required to wear bionic equipment not necessarily separating him from others who are implanted with bionics.
A very dangerous condition in which the arm or the leg is affected and may need to be cut off to save the person’s life. _ A _ G _ _ N _
Amputation which often on the battlefield did save lives, because a crushed foot or arm would always lead to a fatal systemic infection, so it was simpler to cut it off other than to try and save it. Having to work very quickly, a very skilled surgeon would cut through the flesh that was saw completely through the bone and apply a piping red hot iron to fix off the stump’s raw surface and stop the bleeding of the cut. Sometimes the entire operation was performed in less than two minutes. By having a limb amputated the mortality risk was about fifty percent. But even with a fifty-fifty chance of living after this surgery was a better chance that most received, because if the person didn’t receive treatment they would most definitely die. The ability to eliminate pain during surgery was a huge medical breakthrough.
This passage intrigues me because it explains a little how a body is prepared for a funeral. As a student looking into the health community, this intrigues me because of how it is seen as similarity to surgery. “His equipment, consisting of scalpels, scissors, augers, forceps, clamps, needles, pumps, tubes, bowls and basins (...)” (2) The informative tone that Mitford possesses for this essay sounds like what a college professor would lecture, it can get a bit boring (but then again, that could be because of my generation 's attention span and my attention span) but overall informing and she makes it seem as though you need notes on these (then again, most informative writings seem that way). She also uses descriptive language to hook the readers with colorful words (not bad words, just descriptive) and her use of them boosts the readings likeability, in my opinion.
The era of medicine before the Civil War wasn’t beneficial. They had just started common practices and having few uneducated nurses. When entering the Civil War diseases and hygiene became a huge problem for the soldiers on the front lines since doctors had little knowledge about medicine. Amputation, Lewis Sayre, and diseases aided the construct of modern medicine from the Civil War.

The Civil War was bloody, killing around 620,000 people. Most of these people were killed by disease and sickness, and medicine was important. The Civil War split the country pinning North against South over the issue of slavery. Many things such as the Kansas-Nebraska act and the election of Abraham Lincoln led to the succession of 11 southern states. The war lasted from 1861 to 1865, and eventually the Union (the North) came out victorious under Ulysses S. Grant. Robert E. Lee, the Confederate general was not killed or imprisoned, but the 13th amendment was ratified, ending slavery. During the war, there had to be some way to try and save those mortally wounded. A new era of medicine arose, with all new treatments, procedures, and practices.
“The aim of medicine is to prevent disease and prolong life…” said William James Mayo. During the Civil War there were many advances that helped soldiers live through and after the war. Medical Advances in the Civil War introduced new antiseptic medical practices and medical procedures, modern medical surgeries, and medical knowledge to better serve the public.
Igor Spetic is a volunteer at the research center in the Louis Stokes Cleveland Veterans Affairs Medical Center. He uses his left hand, which is his own flesh and blood, and his right hand, a plastic metal prosthetic (a consequence of an industrial accident). The prosthetic in his right hand uses the “myoelectric” device which is controlled by flexing his muscles in his right arm.
Physical therapy is a career that will always be needed throughout society; it helps the human body rebuild physical function in people that have been injured, have birth defects, or any other reasons. People who have been in accidents or have disabling conditions such as low-back pain, arthritis, heart disease, fractures, head injuries and cerebral palsy turn to physical therapists, commonly called PTs, for help. These health care professionals use an assortment of techniques, called modalities, to reestablish function, improve movement, relieve pain and avoid or limit lasting physical disabilities in their patients. There are certain education requirements to become one, just like
Derek Steen had a motorcycle accident thirteen years ago, and he lost his left arm. Dr. Ramachandran was testing him Derek on his arm that no longer exist. Dr. Ramachandran starts to touch Derek’s body and ask him what he feels. When Dr. Ramachandran start to touch Derek’s left check, Derek feels a rubbing on the phantom of his left arm. When they scan Derek’s brain his right hemisphere brain shows green and red spots, and that’s shows that everything is normal on this side, on
