This allows new aircrafts, vehicles, weapons, and communications to be upgraded; making them even deadlier than before. Although, this seems to be dangerous the U.S military has dire issues to fix. Soldiers coming home are the biggest issue. Most soldiers return with devastating wounds, PTSD, unemployment, or their homeless. However, protecting the greater good means you 're willing to give up
HF is not only detrimental to the patient but also impacts funding, reimbursement methods, economy, businesses and cost of our society. The rate of HF readmissions will continue to increase with time due to the aging population. Implementing strategies to offset these causes are important for the financial growth of healthcare today. Elimination of all probable causes prior to discharge will result in evidence based outcomes and promote a longer lifespan. Although, due to the recent presidential election, it is currently uncertain how HF readmissions may affect our future economic standpoint.
It can be quite prevailing for individuals to have financial problems towards health coverage. Based on the Health Affairs reference, “In the last decade, health insurance premiums costs have increased by 80%... whereas 58% of Americans report they are not able to seek medical attention due to high costs” (Gary Claxton, Matthew Rae, and Nirmita Panchal, et al). Statistics also present many factors exhibiting millions of individuals facing the risk of losing their insurance. Above all, health insurance is a basic health necessity. Medical services being available to everyone will benefit the public health not only with quality, but along with quantity.
As the technology marches forward introducing every time we turn around a new, improved device or computer program this constant adaptation undoubtedly affects every part of our financial life. One must agree that iPhones, for example, which become almost absolute after two or three years of use due to evolving computer science must create an economic burden for some American families. The same way, all hospitals must struggle with maintaining technological sharpness while assuring the presence of digital innovation despite the existing financial limitations. To illustrate the monetary hindrance in the VA Hospital, I would like to bring to the attention a problem related to cloud-based application necessary for managing and storing information.
Now that vaccines, procedures and medicine are available for all these diseases that once took the lives of the young and old population, the American people are living longer with a new challenge. Elderly are now living with multi-morbidities and are experiencing debilitating physical decline that often requires an immense amount of care and is more than the American healthcare system projected. The real problem that is at stake is that fewer caregivers are available to provide the care necessary
In fact, our past generations experienced similar issues as described by Jasper Hammill in his article discussing the lasting effects of the industrial revolution on future generations’ mental health. Hammill states that, “post-industrial places had a 31 percent higher tendency toward suffering both anxiety and depression... These traits are then passed down through the generations through a combination of experience and genetics.” (Jasper Hamill). Our ancestors continue to have an effect on us in our modern day society which heavily correlates to the story where our protagonist struggles to get the same health and support that men were more likely to receive. Gilman helps shed some light on the reality of the situation in regards to female oppression and social degradation, especially when referring to the issue of mental health.
But it’s all in the past. At some point, I found it disappointing. The development of medical science is so rapid that all the skills together with the highest qualification of a whole generation can be "nulled" in several years. We have spent a lifetime to learn the operations and procedures, which are not applied now. Sometimes I think that this profession is cruel to those devoting their best years to it, as well as health and life.
Even though we know that these technologies played an important role in the advancement of surgery, we still have yet to fully understand the great weapon that surgery has given to us. Modern day surgery has given us at least forty years more of life expectancy, and it has even given us cures for minute problems and diseases. Without the industrial revolution and the increase in diseases there would be no research to build us to the point that we are at today. Without modern medicine we would have an increasing amount of deadly diseases every year with the fear of death always on your mind. Often we take these simple things for granted, when in reality these are gifts from the generations before us.
In Frankenstein, such advances were not up to par with what it is today. Back in the day, people would die of the common cold, flu, and other curable diseases. Without science, most humans would not only be dead, but most likely extinct easily due to an epidemic. In the article debating the advancements of science, it says, “The advancement of science has most definitely manipulated the progress of humanity over time, as is evident by the current lengths of people 's lives”. (2) Science has undoubtedly saves the lives of numerous people each year, and its advances are what keeps the human population alive and well.
Today in this moment, we have more scientific knowledge and are more technologically advanced than ever in human history. Yet we still suffer from a health crisis. Many experts understand the importance of having a biopsychosocial approach to health care, meaning we need to take into consideration the biological, psychological, sociological and ecological issues for a real understanding of health. Nevertheless, because of systemic economic pressures we have a global health crisis that we simply cannot afford to ignore. In my research I explore systems theory in an effort to understand the root causes of this crisis, I also explore some possible practical solutions to this complicated and ever evolving issue.
Valerie Benavidez Professor Stewart ENC 1101 15 November 2015 The Healthcare Crisis in the States Today, many Americans struggle to obtain minimum, let alone full healthcare coverage. The cost of healthcare has sky rocketed over the years and has become less affordable for thousands of people across the U.S. The number of uninsured Americans is at an all-time high. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) makes perfect sense, economically, because it eases rising costs, has been more successful at previous attempts of reform, and provides a better healthcare system overall, compared to the initial medical care system we use today. There are many factors that led up to the reasons why healthcare costs have risen so rapidly, but one of the main reasons
