Pathology Mankind has been fighting diseases for centuries, nowadays you step outside you risk your life, you take a breath you risk your life.

Many babies do not survive in the first few days or weeks after birth due to heart problems or brain problems. Some babies are able to do surgery to repair cleft palate, cleft lip or heart defects.

The mitral valve is also reconstructed during surgery either by repairing it or, if needed, replacing it so that the valve will close tightly enough to regulate the blood flow. However, during a complete atrioventricular septal defect repair, the doctor will also divide the single mitral valve into two separate valves, with one each on the left and right sides of the repaired septum. If dividing the mitral valve is not possible for the procedure, then a heart valve replacement would be needed to proceed. The anatomical system that is affected by this procedure is the cardiovascular system. The operation is performed in the chest cavity on the heart, with the septum and valves being reconstructed or replaced.
Around 610,000 people each year in the United States die from a heart related problem, that is 1 in every 4 deaths (cdc.gov). Over the past 15 years, researchers and doctors have been finding ways to lower these numbers by creating new medicine, devices and other treatments. A doctor 's main goal is to prevent any heart problems from occurring, but as that is not entirely possible new devices are helping save people 's lives. Three devices and treatments that are being used in hospitals today include, Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement, Left Ventricle Assist Device and a MitraClip.

Beginning as a prescription drug for severe or chronic pain, oxycodone gradually becomes a silent addiction. The patients may experience less pain and a high, ultimately creating a desire for more medication. After the initial first week, the desire has moved from a simple want to a need. The body begins to crave more, as the patient desires to feel the high again. After the first few weeks of being addicted, the original dosage no longer helps.
Doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., diagnosed Payton with a side effect that caused his ducts to drain bile from his liver. Once the cancer set in doctors couldn’t do much to save him. Everyone assumes that since Walter Payton is a Hall of Famer that he would get moved up the recipients list, but the government offers everyone an equal opportunity. No one is above one another. The government also placed a price ceiling on the amount of money needed to pay for an organ.
Then, in their final days they realize they hadn 't talked much about the process of dying even though they knew the disease was progressing, and the end was coming. This is the mistake multiple people make, and one in which I don’t want to make at the end of my life. My ideal death would be having all the necessary paperwork filled out for my wishes, having already had the tough conversation, not taking any measures to prolong my life, and most importantly being surrounded by my friends and family. Much of what I wish to be my ideal death are going to make the process not only easy on me but also on my friends and
