Heart failure is called congestive heart failure when fluids accumulate in various parts of the body. So if you do not already have, but runs the risk of suffering, you should change your lifestyle now! Symptoms of heart failure usually develop over weeks and months as your heart weakens and can not pump blood your body needs. Heart failure usually results in an enlarged heart (left ventricle). Does your heart stops?
Bleeding in the brain is very serious and dangerous because it can deprive the brain of blood, causing parts of the brain to die. Intracranial hemorrhage is usually seen in babies born prematurely, although it sometimes occurs in unborn babies after they have had a stroke. Some factors that can increase the chance of an unborn baby to have a stroke are: pre-existing weaknesses or abnormalities in the baby 's blood vessels or the mother’s placenta, high blood pressure in the
Even though it is a life-saving procedure, it involves heavy blows and may lead to serious injuries at times. Once this procedure is successfully done, the victim should always be seen by a doctor to assess any internal damage due to the thrusts. Choking victims also need medical attention if coughing persists or they have a feeling that something is still inside their throats.

There are several risk factors associated with these types of burns such as, lack of proper blood circulation when the major blood vessels are damaged, that then will lead to lack of oxygen, and lastly, it can lead to shock. Permanent limb damage may occur due to injured bones and tissues. When wounds are open and exposed, they run the risk of infections, which can lead to sepsis. Sepsis is a potential life-threatening illness that occurs when the body responds to infections and injures of its own tissues and organs. Compartment syndrome may also occur if the hypodermis is damaged.
Medication Often the most surprising trigger are specific forms of medications and medicines, both prescribed and over the counter. Specific individuals have also been identified to have anaphylactic reactions to herbal and ‘alternative’ medicines. People who are allergic to medication are highly recommended to wear a ‘Medical Alert Bracelet’ as if they are admitted to hospital under extreme duress, for example in a car accident and they become unconscious, they would be unable to inform doctors that they are infact allergic to certain drugs, putting their life at
2. Use of Lasers To Treatment Keloids The treatment of keloids use this laser is more effective to flatten keloids and reduce the rash occurs when undergoing cortisone injections to remove keloids. This treatment is safe and will not be too painful, just take a couple of sessions to achieve maximum results, but is also a factor the cost of this treatment is very expensive. 3. Remove Keloids With Surgery The treatment of keloids this one can be classified as acts that are in danger, to cut the keloid will be able to ignite a new keloid as a result of cuts when cutting keloids.
Shock Definition Shock is a medical emergency in which the organs and tissues of the body are not receiving an adequate flow of blood. This deprives the organs and tissues of oxygen (carried in the blood) and allows the buildup of waste products. Shock can result in serious damage or even death. Description There are three stages of shock: Stage I (also called compensated, or nonprogressive), Stage II (also called decompensated or progressive), and Stage III (also called irreversible). In Stage I of shock, when low blood flow (perfusion) is first detected, a number of systems are activated in order to maintain/restore perfusion.
Aortic Dissection: Hemiarch Versus Total Arch Replacement Taylor Aubin Sinclair Community College October 1, 2015 Aortic dissection is a life threatening condition in which the intima, the inner most layer, of the aorta tears. As the blood flows through the aorta it rushes through this tear resulting in dissection of the intima from the media, the middle layer of the aorta. This unfortunate condition is often fatal if the newly created false lumen ruptures through the aortic wall. Aortic dissection must be immediately detected and treated to increase the opportunity of survival. There are different types of aortic dissection categorized using two classifications which are DeBakey and Stanford.
As with other soft tissue injuries, whiplash may heal given time and rest; however, that is not always the case. Severe cases of whiplash can result in chronic pain and reduced mobility that prevents you from performing everyday tasks and returning to work. If you notice any symptoms of whiplash, seek immediate medical care. Closed Head Injuries Because a closed head injury can occur without any outward sign of physical trauma, this type of injury can go unnoticed for days or weeks. A closed head injury occurs when the head strikes an object or the head is violently jerked causing the brain to “bounce” around hitting the skull.
What happens during a myocardial infarction is that the muscle that surrounds the heart (known as myocardium) losses its access to the blood supply. This could happen because something is blocking it the blood supply from getting to the muscle around the heart, like a clot, or because of buildup of material on the wall of the artery. The experience of having a myocardial infarction is very stressful one, it an even lead to death, this might be a reason researchers would want to research the possibility of having Posttraumatic Stress Disorder from it. During a myocardial infarctions many symptoms may appear such as, chest pain, nausea, pain in the arm, jaw or neck, cardiac arrest, and many more. If a myocardial infarction goes untreated it
Name That Liability The name of the responsibility is negligence due to falls of patients in intensive care unit. The liability may occur due to the medical staff that forget to put the brakes on the beds, put in a low position, the call light within reach and personnel items easily reach to every patient. These falls can bring a lot of injuries to patients and fractures (loss of continuity of bone tissue. It ranges from a small crack to total bone fracture displacement of the two ends of the bone fracture), trauma to the skull and face (injuries to the skull and face are especially important, since the intensity of the shock can affect the central nervous system (CNS), located within the cranial cavity), trauma to the extremities (as a result
Diseases or illnesses affecting the lungs cause the flow of air and blood into and out of your lungs to become impaired. Obstruction in the airflow impairs the lower airways from clearing out mucus which in turn creates an ideal environment for infection. Inflammation in the airways occurs and makes matters worse for the lungs. Inflammation with COPD damages the system responsible for the clearing of mucus in the airways. The risk of developing pneumonia for those with COPD is greater due to already weakened lungs and the inability to filter bacteria and viruses.
Sickle cell disease prevents one of the body 's most fundamental re-sources, the blood, from adequately transporting oxygen to the tissue, which can result in organ damage and many other related complications. A sickle cell related "crisis" can be extremely painful for patients, and deadly in some cases. Both quality of life and life expectancy are reduced for sickle cell patients, even when the disease is optimally managed with existing therapies, blood transfusions, vitamin regimens and a host of other precautions. "An ISU student died March 12 from complications of Sickle Cell Anemia there is no cure for Sickle Cell Anemia" (Indiana Statesman 2004). Sickle cell disease is a group of disorders that affects hemoglobin.
Pseudoaneurysm A pseudoaneurysm happens when an artery is injured and blood leaks out to form a sac-like bulge. The bulge can break open, causing bleeding in the nearby tissues. CAUSES The most common cause of this condition is a procedure such as an angiogram in which a thin tube (catheter) is inserted into an artery. After an angiogram, the insertion site on the artery should close back up all the way. If it does not, blood may leak out of the artery.
Elliott Cole Mr. Jason Long, Instructor EMS Academy 20 January 2016 Anaphylactic Shock Anaphylactic shock and Anaphylaxis are serious medical conditions that are a result of insufficient blood flow throughout the body. Anaphylactic shock refers to severe hypersensitivity or an allergic reaction. Causes of Anaphylaxis often include allergic reaction to foods, medications, or insect stings. Anaphylactic shock on the other hand, is a medical emergency which can lead to other conditions such as a lack of oxygen in the body 's tissues (hypoxia), heart attack, cardiac arrest and even severe organ damage. Anaphylactic shock requires immediate medical care and treatment for the symptoms which can worsen rapidly.
