An experience I had involving ethics in relation to an interprofessional collaboration was in my present nursing case. Prior to me starting my patient a 13-year-old girl had a severe asthma attack and went into cardiac arrest, died and was brought back to life this past February. Although the EMTs were able to bring her back, she has been in a coma ever since. What makes this case an ethical dilemma is that several months ago the doctors wanted to diagnose her as brain dead and remove her from life support. Through the use of medical terminology, lack of understanding about her daughter’s condition and unempathetic doctors they managed to convince the mother that her child had no hope of survival.
Although many states made it illegal for minors to use tanning salons, and President Obama created a 10% tax on tanning, young people flock to the salons yearning for a bronze complexion. Call to Action: Indoor tanning is dangerous and unhealthy. The Indoor Tanning Association even warns consumers of the risks when using these beds, so why do we still use them? Is it a self-esteem issue or just refusal to see the truth in the danger that tanning is just as bad or worse than smoking and leads to cancer which is deadly? Every time you lay in a tanning bed, you are volunteering your body to get
The doctor had tied the bandages too tightly, stopping the blood flow, resulting in her death (Diclementi 200). There are “added risks” (Ryan and Cocotos) for teens because they haven’t stopped growing and doctors are worried that it will be dangerous for teenagers to get cosmetic surgery at a young age. Most likely, “‘[s]omeone will die [from cosmetic surgery]’, warns Norman Waterhouse, a London-based surgeon and former president of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS)” (Waterhouse qtd. in Lawton 54-56). There can be “emotional risks involved, as well” (Styer qtd.
SMOKING AND ITS EFFECTS Convincing someone to quit smoking is a challenge even if we lay cards on the table and tell them of the negative effects it can cause their body. It is after all like a drug, once you pop you can’t stop. Not only is smoking linked to cancer, lung problems and heart disease, it is the most preventable cause of morbidity and is responsible for the three million and more deaths every year around the world. Studies show that smoking can also cause premature skin ageing, delayed wound healing, hair loss and is a cause of numerous dermatological disorders such as psoriasis. If you need some motivation to stop smoking, add ageing of the skin to your list!
They do not know the disadvantages of using the makeup, because nobody tells them. They are told that it is used to make you beautiful, not that a chemical in your moisturizer may cause you to get cancer. All of these ingredients called the “Dirty Dozen” don’t only affect your outer self but they affect the inside of your body too. Most of these harmful products contain xenoestrogen which is any product of industrial or chemical processing that have estrogen like effects. In Source B, a YouTube video titled “Dirty Dozen Toxic Cosmetic Ingredients,” the doctor says, “A lot of the time it’s because we’re developing this toxic accumulation of man-made or synthetic estrogen also known as xenoestrogen.
But for the most part I think that GMO technology is a good thing. The definition of GMO or Genetically modified organism is taking a gene from one species to another. After conducting a survey with nine people I found some interesting things about how people feel about GMO’s. 55% people know what GMO’s are 22% somewhat know what they are and 22% have no idea what they are. I feel like you should know what a GMO is.
However there is unimportant proof to propose that there are disservices and critical dangers of expending GM foods. Different testing has been led on a variety of substances and segments of GM crops to test for specific impacts, some of these being toxicity and allergenicity. There are clashing reports; some proposing GM foods are sheltered, others that say they are unsafe and a danger to human health. According to my point of view, we should support the production of genetically modified foods because many poor countries are facing food shortage problems. GM foods can play a positive role to overcome the food shortage problem at world level.
Telling them that drugs can harm their brain cells if they consume drugs while their brain are still in the process of growing. Drugs can harm the body from the outside and the inside. Sometimes that harm can lead to a higher risk of dying because of the damage being done. Drugs like heroin, ecstasy, alcohol, and many more can cause your brain to be in another condition of not being able to be in control of your body. For example, one of my friends, uncle has been doing cocaine and drinking alcohol since he was 27 now that he is 35 he has horrible chest pain and his heart rate is very high leading him to have a heart attack at any moment.
Conversely, the destruction of families due to the volatile temperament induced by recreational drugs would have a lasting effect – a value of ‘-200 hedons’ would be plausible. In this instance the net worth of drug abuse would be ‘-195’ or ‘195 dolors’. In pursuit of “the greatest good for the greatest number”, the snowball effects must be considered. For example, the poor hygiene associated with intravenous drugs increases the spread of blood contagions, causing illnesses such as HIV in thousands of people thereby endangering their lives. In doing this, healthcare systems are monopolised, diverting taxpayer money away from treating unpreventable diseases.
(Facts)From the website PureSight Online Child Safety they wrote" Hannah Smith, a 14-year-old girl from Lutterworth, Leicestershire, England, hanged herself in her bedroom on August 3rd, 2013.

Her dad was a violent alcoholic who beat her mother, and her mom was violet to the kids. At the age of 5, she got scarlet fever which leads her later on in life to have learning disabilities. This caused her to drop out of school at the age of 12. This caused her to tell rumors that she was raped by a coast guard. At the young age, she had to have a blood transfusion.
Thulia thinks Trump won 't do much about the problem. I think that doctors should give patients more information when prescribing opioids to patients. Many people that just had a painful surgery take opioids to stop their pain and then shortly get addicted after from taking the pills, I believe people would not get as tempted, and feel like it is ok to take opioids, if they knew they were highly addictive. Allen, a recovering addict, had to research her symptom to find out why she was having this temptation to take these pain killing pills when she was not even in pain. Allen’s doctor never told her about the danger of these “painkillers” but once Allen found out, she was concerned about herself, and knew she was addicted and in

EpiPen With the recent price increase for the life saving EpiPen many families are being forced to either pay the absurd amount for the drug or to risk their safety and go without one. This imperative device is a prefilled syringe that inject a small dosage of epinephrine into the thigh muscle which suppresses the immune system to open up the airways closed off by fatal allergic reactions such as bee stings or nuts. For 43 Billion people across Americans the EpiPen is a necessity to daily life. One that which many people now are deciding to go without. While the EpiPen’s price continue to go up, the average consumer 's wage does not.
Her mother was legally blind and a schizophrenic, which qualifies their family for welfare to only pay for her parents’ drug ritual. Throughout, the years of drugs the girls are brought around other users and Liz receives abuse from Ron while her mother is gone to the liquor store one night. Her mother also eventually breaks the news to Liz that she has HIV. The drugs drive a wedge in between her parents which leads them to separation. This seems to really affect Liz along with the new diagnosis of her mom.
