Pregnancy outcome: Few studies have reported that nausea and vomiting in pregnancy is associated with favourable pregnancy outcome8-10. An interesting study conducted by group of investigators in 411 pregnant women about the pattern of nausea and vomiting its pregnancy outcome showed that women without nausea and vomiting had a greater proportion of non viable fetus and low birth weight infants than those who had vomiting 8.
Depression is a psychological disorder characterized by feelings of persistent sadness, hopelessness, and suicidal tendencies.1,2 There are several types of depression ranging from seasonal depression to postpartum depression (PPD), after birth depression.2 The term “postpartum depression” contains a number of different mood disorders that vary in their nature.3 These differences are essential when it comes to the displayed symptoms and applied treatment.3 PPD affects 10% to 15% of recent mothers. In some parts these percentages could rise up to 35%.3 However, most of the cases remain undiagnosed due to a number of factors
Win Ma PH-211: Ethics Jo Jo Koo “Let Your Kids Grow Up”: Kantian, Utilitarian, and Virtue Ethics Response to Parental-Child Upbringing of the Disabled It is common for parents to make their children become independent when the children reach adulthood. However, disabled children’s parents are hesitant to let their children become independent. To see what the parent should do I consider responses from three ethical systems: Kantian Ethics, Utilitarianism, and Virtue Ethics. As I will show, all three ethics show disabled children’s parents should make their child independent. However, I will then argue the utilitarian position is more persuasive.
Family income and maternal education were also independent predictors of oral expression and oral composite scores. No differences were found between children with right- or left-ear UHL or with varying severity of hearing loss. Children with UHL were more likely to have an individualized education plan (odds ratio: 4.4 [95% confidence interval: 2.0-9.5]) and to have received speech-language therapy (odds ratio: 2.6 [95% confidence interval: 1.3-5.4]).School-aged children with UHL demonstrated worse oral language scores than did their siblings with normal hearing. These
Recent evidence also exists that there is a link between autism and twins. Identical Twins, about 70-90%, both have autism in comparison to, 3% of fraternal twins both have autism. Also, study has shown that families that have more than one child, their second child, tend to be the one that may carry the disorder. It is key to understand that genetics and environmental factors is not fully to explain the cause of autism (Block, M., Block, V. , & Halliday, P. , pg.
I believe that it is a safe method for both male and females. The price for spermicide is also inexpensive, it can also be combined with other barriers, in which the failure rate for pregnancy becomes even more less. Sterilization is another good method I would choose; in 1995 pregnancy prevention through sterilization has dropped drastically since then. It also is the permanent method of birth control.
Infants at High Risk for Developing RSV & Palivizumab Background Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is an acute viral infection and the common cause of bronchiolitis in infants and young children. RSV primarily occurs in the months of October to March and affects infants of approximately six months of age and generally under the age of twenty-four months. The purpose of the study was to determine the association of RSV-related hospitalization and non-compliance with palivizumab (Synagis) in commercially insured infants and was clearly conveyed by the researcher. palivizumab is monoclonal antibody administered to high-risk infants via the intramuscular injection monthly for a five-month period, usually from November to March.
Few benign lesions such as a fibroadenoma and a chronic abscess had a higher strain ratio and appeared to be hard on elastography. These patients were false positive on sonoelastography. Discussion: Maximum number of patients with palpable and non-palpable breast lumps were in the age group of 40-50 years, followed by those between 60-70 years (Table 1). Mean age was seen to be 50.6 in the study.
In 1992, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported an ectopic pregnancy rate of 19.8 per 1,000 pregnancies compared with a rate of 3.7 per 1,000 pregnancies in 1980. Lipscomb GH, et al (2000).Although early diagnosis and modern management techniques have contributed to a marked decline in mortality, ectopic pregnancy remains one of the leading causes of maternal morbidity and mortality as cited by Dorfman SF, Grimes DA, Cates W Jr, et al (2008).Undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy can result in rupture of the fallopian tube with intra-abdominal bleeding, leading to haemorrhagic shock and death. The most common manifestations of ruptured ectopic pregnancy are abdominal pain, light headedness, and vaginal bleeding, which collectively can be of moderate sensitivity but low specificity. The first essential branch point in the majority of guidelines for the management of ectopic pregnancy includes a sensitive qualitative urine β-subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin (β-hCG) assay. A negative test result is used to exclude the diagnosis of pregnancy and thereby a possible ectopic gestation.
In children and families, where FASD is a concern, there is increased risk for contact with the child welfare system and children are often placed in care … FASD will impact clients throughout the life span. There remain many gaps in the research, not just in child protection but also the impact of FASD at various stages of life. Given the strong clinical connection between social work and FASD, social work should position itself to provide leadership and excellence in research and practice. (Badry & Choate, 2015).
While treatment outcomes have been successful, a great majority of the studies focus on a limited population focus, of which most do not include male participants at all. According to the American Psychiatric Association (2013), females make up 75% of the population diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. However, 25% is still a significant number of males that could benefit from the same empirical studies of dialectical behavior therapy for treatment of borderline personality disorder.
Over the past decade, increasing research has been conducted on the prevalence of and the outcomes associated with children exposed to domestic violence (Kitzmann, Gaylord, Holt & Kenny, 2003). Children exposed to domestic violence may experience higher rates of externalizing and internalizing behaviors than their peers. The negative consequences of experiencing domestic violence have been observed from infancy to adolescents and in males and females (Evans, Davies & DiLillo, 2008). State laws regarding children’s exposure to domestic violence vary. Several states have no specific statues addressing this population (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families, 2012).
Choosing a name for a child is a difficult process that can have unexpected surprises. When choosing a name parents may consider the meaning and origin of the name. They may draw inspiration from historical figures or events. Furthermore, even when one considers all aspects of a name, unanticipated developments may arise and lead to all effort invested into choosing a name becoming irrelevant. However, one may question if all the attention parents put towards choosing a name for their child is truly due, or whether this activity is a misappropriation of time that could be better used preparing for the arrival of the child.
