presence can be identified but it is much more difficult to prove its absence (Gosseries et al., 2011). Causes The vegetative state just like other disorders of consciousness can occur due to three main reasons; the first and most common cause is a traumatic brain injury. As a result of a severe head injury, for example an injury sustained during a car accident, a fall from a great height, or a violent assault, a person can enter into a state of vegetative consciousness. According to Gosseries et al. (2011), in most cases where the damage is severe, patients usually die within a few days.
Bradykinesia, a disease that could ruin your life. This disease causes a person to gain, slow movements, and even freeze up sometimes (Medical.net). Bradykinesia causes a person to lose dopamine in parts of their brain. When you lose dopamine in the brain it causes you to slowly gain the symptoms of this disease (HealthLine). Even though there are many setbacks to having bradykinesia, it can be helped slow down and stop some of the symptoms.
This disorder leads to too much blood clotting 3. Clotting in this process can then cause the clots to travels to the brain, causing a stroke. a. If clot travels to the heart is can cause a heart stroke D. “Silent Stroke” 1. This stroke has a pretty accurate name “silent” because this a a symptomless stroke.
The blood flow and oxygen flow is incorrect or in simple words, the current of blood stops flowing through you body correctly. WHAT IS THE ISCHEMIA DISEASE Ischemia Heart Disease or Coronary Heart Disease is the narrowing of the blood vessels that supply the heart with blood and oxygen. These Arteries Include: 1. Left Anterior Descending Artery 2. Left Circumflex Artery 3.
Aldosterone increases the preload to increase the systolic volume (Moreau, 2006). However, this is counterproductive in the long run because an increase in the preload will wear out the heart by working double time as well as increasing lung congestion. The heart failure causes multiple organ failure in chronic conditions such as altered digestion, decreased brain perfusion
Then, antibiotics, surgery, anti-inflammatory agents, or obstetric procedures may regulate hemostasis, mainly in chronic DIC. However, in acute phase of DIC, two categories of treatment are available as follows: treatments that slow the coagulation process and therapies that substitute the coagulation factors and the missing platelets. Heparin also can be used to stop the uncontrolled stimulation of the coagulation cascade due to the antithrombotic properties. Careful monitoring of heparin is required because the heparin can worsen the bleeding. Red blood cell administration, thawed frozen plasma, and platelets transfusion may be use based on the patient
Immune-related reactions occur when your immune systems attacks components of the blood being transfused or when the blood cause an allergic reactions. Most transfusion reactions occur because of errors made in matching the recipient’s blood to the blood transfused. Even receiving the correct blood type sometimes results in a transfusion reaction. Most mild reactions are life-threatening when treated quickly. Doctors or nurses will stop the blood transfusion if they think you are having reaction.
Sometimes after the surgery the patient may experience pain, bleeding or swelling. To avoid the pain the dentist may prescribe medicine for the patient in order for them to be comfortable after the procedure. In case of post-surgical bleeding the patient may undergo bleeding 12 to 24 hours after the surgery. This is hard to keep under control, but the patient is advised to press a sterile gauze pad on the surgical area for up to 20 minutes. The patient may also experience interstitial bleeding, also known as ecchymosis.
Lifestyle modifications is the number one factor influencing the prognosis of a patient. If a patient follows the medication regimen prescribed, adheres to the recommended diet, quits smoking, and begins an exercise program their short and long term are good. When a patient does not adhere to the recommendations complications are likely to reoccur. Summary and Conclusion Summary In summary, a NSTEMI is a life-threatening complication that is preventable. By properly educating patients on the risk factors, signs and symptoms, and when to seek medical attention the prevalence of myocardial infarctions would likely decrease.
Among American adults, 1 in 2 have a chance at having high blood pressure. That is 50 percent of all people who are above the age of 18 in the United States. High blood pressure can be caused by multiple factors in that age range. In an ad by the Ad Council for the American Heart Association titled “High Blood Pressure Control,” the Ad Council states that many Americans who have high blood pressure do not have their blood pressure under control. While there are many ways to keep blood pressure under control, many adult Americans do not pay attention to the signs.
The low body temperature from the cooling pads causes the immune system to slow down. Typically, a strong immune system is extremely crucial to the body’s overall health from exterior infections and diseases; however, during the process of induced hypothermia, a decrease in immune system is prefered because it reduces the risk of inflammatory reactions. In a healthy body, inflammatory reactions are important because they will create an increase in blood circulation, which will normally help fight off
