She does recall having similar symptoms some 20-10 years ago in the setting of frequent bronchitis. I have therefore suggested that we perform a bronchial provocation test to definitively to exclude asthma, although admittedly her symptoms are far from typical. I have also arranged an HRCT chest scan and I will see Rina again in the next week or so. In the meantime, I have asked her to keep a logbook to monitor when the episodes are occurring and if there is any particular pattern. Thank you again for your
However, there was no statistical difference between acupressure treatment and placebo (acupressure at nonacupressure points) groups. Because fatigue and poor sleep is often accompanied by depressive symptoms, Tsay (2004) reported that the application of 12-minutes of acupressure at SP 6, GB 34, ST 36, and KD 1 three times a week for four weeks reduced fatigue and depression, and improved sleep quality in patients with ESRD (n = 106) when compared to a control group (p <
The sizes of nanomaterials are similar to most biological molecules and they can be of great use in biomedical applications. In the past few years reports have appeared in the application of metal nanoparticles for the control of microbial infections when used on surfaces of biomedical devices and implants. The antimicrobial properties of both silver and copper nanoparticles have been investigated earlier after coating on to various biomaterials in the last decade (ref). In the last few years, extensive research on metallic nanoparticles has proved their potential as antimicrobial agents. Among these metals the most widely studied metals for their antimicrobial nature are silver and copper (Ingle et al 2008 and Umer et al 2012).
Drug is a natural or synthetic chemical agent that used in medication to diagnosis, treatment or prevention of disease and can affect how the cell and tissue functioning. One of the most important theory in drugs is the germ theory of disease, developed by Robert Koch and Louis Pasteur. This theory suggests that there are many diseases are produced by the existence and actions from specific micro- organisms inside the body. To proof the theory, they led the research and development of “Magic Bullets” and recruited Paul Ehrlich along the way. Paul Ehrlich (1854- 1915) was a German scientist who worked in field of immunology, hematology and chemotherapy.
The more people knew how easy it is to donate blood and once they are more educated about donating blood, they will be more likely to do so. A. There are few requirements of donating blood. 1. Aged between 18 and 60 years old , body weight of at least 45 kg, In good physical and mental health with no chronic medical illness, and not on long term medications and has not been intoxicated by alcohol within 24 hours prior to donation.
There were no technical difficulties in the procedure even in the cases associated with anatomical distortion of the floor of the third ventricle due to the associated congenital anomalies. Based on the preoperative radiological imaging, 42 patients (63.7%) diagnosed to have non-communicating (obstructive) hydrocephalus and 29 patients (32.7%) had communicating hydrocephalus, however in 44 cases HCP associated with MMC. The signs and symptoms of increased intracranial pressure resolved after ETV in all patients. Follow-up brain CT scan showed no complications related to the third ventriculostomy except for insignificant asymptomatic Pneumocephalus in 11 cases. The initial clinical success rate was 82% and decreased slightly to 78% during long-term follow-up.
8. AYURVEDIC MASSAGE AND HERBS Ayurvedic massage has been practiced in India for around 5000 years. It is used to balance the physical, mental and emotional body. There are around twenty different types of ayurvedic massage and each one is aimed at treating specific health imbalances. In some regions of India treatments are given daily for up to one month each year to treat and prevent dis-ease and to delay the aging process.
In the first phase, the researchers did not intervene in any violations and found that the compliance with smoke free zones was a mere thirty-three percent. This data correlates with the results from the Seitz study as it shows that there is a lack of compliance with a passive form of smoking policy. However, in the next phase of the study, the researchers intervened by adding clearly marked non-smoking areas with more signs and by having people intervene with smokers, giving them cards that reflected whether they were in compliance with policies. In this phase, there was a near reversal of the results with seventy-seven percent of smokers following the campuses policies. Having a well defined nonsmoking area discourages people from breaking these rules, leading to a healthier campus with less secondhand smoking.
