But, the fact of the matter is that an emotionally sensitive topic such as addiction which has such a hold on to American citizens would greatly benefit from an appeal to these sensitivities. Of course, any article would benefit from facts such as, “About 40 percent of people using opioids aren’t interested in treatment,” or logic like, “Somebody who says they’re ready for treatment doesn’t mean they’re ready to stop using.” But, when someone fails to overcome addiction, they face mortality. An ultimatum between life and death is an empathetic topic and by appealing to emotions that become aroused by the topic of death, one can strengthen their argument. Undoubtedly, facts and common sense are important. Yet, feelings are almost impossible to control and will persuade readers to continue their or their loved-ones battle against addiction.
The rhetor is compelled to speak about this issue for it gives those whom she interviewed a sense of voice and a call out to doctors to be more understanding of their patients. The Kairos of when the essay was written is essential because if the essay was written in modern day, many will not read it for it is currently not a concerning issue compare to how it used to be. Living life while believing there is something living and crawling inside you is no easy thing just anyone can live with. Morgellons disease is a relatively rare condition that most frequently affects middle-aged white women. The skin shows symptoms of rashes, sores, fibers, the sensation of creatures crawling on or in your skin, and extreme itching.
While the movie is fiction, it does contain a realistic moral lesson that can be applied to real life. The scenario is based on past possibilities as the treatment that the patients received is very outdated as 1) there are not nearly as many asylums as there were in the 1980s and 2) the mistreatment of patients is also very outdated as their rights have increased over time. The film makes a moral argument about the importance of self image and maintenance of self respect. McMurphy teaches the other patients (and the audience) that they must be confident in themselves and that even if they are crazy, they’re still people. This message can be related to the reading of The Moral of the Story: An Introduction to Questions of Ethics and Human Nature as the morals can teach us about real life and further philosophical
A recently developed a new treatment for macular degeneration with very good results in general (although there are people who do not respond to this treatment), which is based on the use of injections periodic anti-VEGF (vascular endothelial growth ), they are hindering the development of new vessels, which is the alteration that really worsens the prognosis of the disease. Other less frequent macular degeneration, such as the toxic maculopathy , occur as a result of the ingestion of certain substances, such as drugs used in malaria , namely chloroquine, so when this drug is used is eye must perform regular checks, as well as a previous eye
When people discover that I'm studying acupuncture a common question I get asked is "isn't acupuncture just placebo?" The short answer is yes and no. I have written this article in response to this question and to examine the placebo effect. I have tried to be as objective as possible but obviously my view is going to be biased as I am studying to become an acupuncturist so I obviously think it is more than placebo. To start with the definition of the placebo effect is "A substance containing no medication and prescribed or given to reinforce a patient's expectation to get well."
You shouldn’t worry about the effects of the medicine, because the exhausting nausea and vomiting affects you and your baby. By taking prescribed medicines not only you, but also your baby will find relief. • Let yourself get distracted- Whenever you experience nausea or an urge to vomit, try and think of something that currently occupies your mind besides the pregnancy. Sometimes it works if you set your mind on something else and ignore the morning sickness altogether. Nausea is not an easy thing to ignore, but a good book or an entertaining crossword might
I have always thought that in extreme circumstances when the patient can no longer function properly and there quality of life is almost non-existent then I think that euthanasia is the right thing as you ensuring that that person no longer feels any pain. After researching this topic further and looking into personal opinions especially those of doctors I still feel that euthanasia could be considered a mercy killing upon certain circumstances, but I also think that it should be used as a final resort and the main focus should be on improving care for the patients to see if this can cause any improvements. If the area continues this way with the topic gaining more publicity with people coming forward and fighting for their right to die as they please then it is likely that euthanasia will become legal in more countries, then the few where it is already such as Belgium. Although, if more doctors come out against this practise then there is the possibility that control may become stricter in those countries where it has been legalised or it may be made illegal for being
Another disadvantage is that Amber may have repeated examinations (Siu, 2015). This is because while her GP would’ve sent her medical files and notes from their consultation to the specialist, sometimes this does not always happen, (Weynants, 2015). Sometimes parts of the files/notes are not sent through, meaning the specialist as to repeat some examinations that will aid them in making an appropriate decision of what treatment plant to give Amber. This uses up some of the appointment time as well, giving the specialist slightly less time than
They say that they are healthier for you and help you quit. However, studies have shown that this is not true. Vapingdail.com states, do not be fooled, e-cigarettes are not healthy. E- cigs still contain nicotine, which can give you heart or lung disease. Nicotine is an addictive chemical, in the end you will be hooked on smoking e-cigarettes.
Some might argue that banning smoking in hospitals is not so much a good example as a cruel decision for smokers. According to an article in The New York Times, smoking causes long-term stress levels to rise (O’Connor). In addition, Cambridge University researchers found that hospital workers were not smoking outside wards for pleasure or stress reduction but were just driven by chemical dependence. Thus, stress reduction cannot be a valid reason to tolerate smoking on hospital premises. Of course, everyone in hospitals will be offered nicotine replacement therapy and plenty of advice to minimize withdrawal symptoms and to make them feel convinced enough.
In conclusion,the article has outstanding key points. Haelle could’ve added more information to make the article a little better.She explained the outbreaks that occurred in different countries and different people. She provide examples to explain her explanation. She includes in her article that its family that are traveling is the one that 's getting the measles because they didn 't get any vaccination. Haelle did not include if the disease decreased over the years.The article would have been better because the article would of had enough keypoints.
Even though this was many decades ago, I feel as though there still should have been standard practices in place that prevented this kind of behavior from those who are supposed to be trusted most, health care professionals. The article we had to read in a previous assignment is a wonderful account of Henrietta Lacks life and the impact she made on the world today. It
As I continue reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks it makes me question why some of the people treated her the way they did. Like how Doctor Gey would only care about taking Henrietta’s cancerous cells for research rather than help her. It also has me wondering about what is going to happen in the remaining chapters and how everything will end up with Henrietta’s family. I think if Rebecca Skloot wrote another book similar to this I would read it because of how interested I am in this one. As for recommending this book, yes I would.
Nearly every time she introduces a scientist, she first uses a direct quotation from them and in the next sentence she states where they work. Although stating where the researcher is from builds credibility, it is not essential enough information to stand alone as s sentence. It could have been just as effective and more eloquent by stating these facts as subordinate clauses. In addition, a reader could easily be confused of determining which are the author’s own words and which are the paraphrase of scientists. For example, “Drugs such as colistin, which are so important for treating people, need to be withheld from use in animals — at least until absolutely necessary, he says” gives credibility to the scientist at the end of the sentence.
Slater 's theory that we spend our lives paying attention only to information that is consonant with our beliefs, and we ignore contradictory information that might cause us to question what we have built is extremely important because it exposes how people become close-minded about other beliefs. Slater herself writes, "My sinks soaks it up and the cut closes over, so there is no mark there anymore, or is it just too dark to really see (Slater 132)." In other words, Slater believes that it could be true that the oil healed up her wound, or, she could deny it and make up an excuse. The argument here is that if others do not admit other possible facts or truths, they will be left in the dark. In other words, they will not be exposed to new ideas
