A dissonance between expectations and reality creates a sense of humor, which, when utilized in literature, acts to amplify criticism. Building on this, exaggerating flaws and unusual situations connects the novel to the reader, establishing a successful comedy. In his novel Catch-22, Joseph Heller explores this concept by developing Yossarian, the protagonist, as a character marked by ambiguity. While many details of the setting remain unclear, Heller mentions that the novel occurs during World War II primarily on an island called Pianosa, the Twenty-seventh Army Air Force Headquarters. Throughout each aspect of his life, Yossarian occupies a gray area. He stays in the hospital over a liver condition that fails to be jaundice, but his fever
It is important for all people to be vaccinated to protect themselves from contracting communicable diseases, from spreading these diseases, and from the high cost of treating these preventable diseases. It would make sense to do so. No one wants to contract diseases, or be laid up if they can prevent it. Getting vaccinated will prevent anyone from spreading contracted diseases to others. It can also be very costly when trying to treating a communicable disease that could have been prevented with a vaccine. Immunization will prevent you and others from contracting a disease as well as dealing with all the expenses that come along with treating that disease. Everyone should make getting vaccinated a priority for their health and for others.
Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections, and complicates a person’s ability to breathe. People with Cystic fibrosis have troubles to breathe because a broken gene causes a thick, growth of mucus in the lungs, pancreas and other organs. The mucus blocks the air passage to the lungs, and traps bacteria leading to infections, considerable lung harm, and sooner or later, respiratory failure. In the pancreas, this mucus blocks the deliverance of digestive enzymes that allow the body to break down food and absorb vital nutrients. People with this disease used to have a life expectancy of 6 months back in 1938, but now with the advances of technology and medical treatments, life expectancy is approximately 35
Native Americans experienced a dramatic change in the 1830s. Nearly 125,000 Native Americans who lived on inherited land from ancestors of Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Florida were all cast out by the end of the decade. The federal government forced the natives to leave because white settlers wanted an area to grow their cotton. Andrew Jackson (President of the U.S. during this time) signed into law, the Indian Removal Act, authorizing him to grant unsettled lands west of the Mississippi River in return for native lands within state borders. As a result of Andrew Jackson’s Indian Removal Act during the years of 1838 and 1839, the Cherokee nation was enforced to give up land east of the Mississippi River
How has the Philadelphia yellow fever epidemic of 1793 change history? An appalling contagious outbreak impacted the colossal city of America and its country’s capital. In the summer of 1793 the weather was brutally humid and mild. Therefore, this infectious disease has initiated in August and is known to be terminated approximately few months later in November. This disease has commenced by mosquitoes and caused a massive amount of deaths. Not only has this epidemic dispatched numerous people it made them suffer to the point where it was unbearable to handle.
Lupus is the fourth leading cause in disability for women. 38% of Lupus patient has been forced to stop working due to health complications from this disease. Patients spend roughly about $6,000 in treatments alone. It is unfortunate that this disease has taken a backseat when it comes to research priorities. Hopefully as time goes by, the attention towards gaining investment will increase before more of the population has to go through this disease that makes it unbearable for an individual to live their
It is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disease (metabolism disorder passed down through families) caused by a deficiency in one of the enzymes needed to break down the glycosaminoglycan heparan sulfate which is found in the extra-cellular matrix and on cell surface glycoproteins. It makes the body unable to properly break down the heparin sulfate sugar chain. The incompletely broken down heparan sulfate remains stored inside cells in the body and begins to build up, causing progressive damage. There are four types of sanflippo syndrome based on the defective gene that encode for the enzyme.
Abraham Lincoln was shown to have a tall/thin build, a long face, and enormous hands and feet. He shares the same symptoms of an individual suffering from Marfan syndrome. Marfan syndrome is a genetic disease that affects the connective-tissue of an individual. The connective tissues help the human body grow and develop by holding cells, organs, and tissues together. This disease is caused by mutations in a gene called “FBN1”. This gene holds the information to make a protein known as “fibrillin-1”. This protein is responsible for repairing tissues and controlling the growth throughout the body. The FBN1 gene is responsible for this mutation. This gene can reduce the amount of healthy fibrillin-1 proteins, thus resulting in instable tissues
Chromosome #2 with locus TPOX with a length of 248 base pairs was only found in the parent sample A. None of the chromosomes from sample b matched the chromosomes from A, C, or D+E except for maternal TPOX chromosome from B and the paternal TPOX from C.
What would you do if your town started to come down with a fever that no one knew what it was? The reasons why I think that the author used “all was not right” for this chapter is because they knew something was going around and that they did not know what was going on.
An Outbreak at the Michigan State University is my next medical investigation. I was called to the campus to investigate the outbreak and all of its victims. There are 9 patients they are suspected to be victims of the outbreak. Sue, Jill, Marco, Maria, Maggie, Alvin, Arnie, Anthony, and Wanda. The patients came into the campus infirmary worried about their symptoms. Each patient has agreed to testing except for Arnie. The patients have similar symptoms but the symptoms were presented in a different way. I thus had to investigate, diagnose, treat, and produce a prevention plan on how to attack this outbreak that is affecting the campus environment.
This syndrome is caused by a deletion of chromosomes 15, however AS can be inherited through genes. (Charles Williams, 2015) Due to its rareness research is still being gathered. Angelman syndrome is a rare condition and
“OK, Team! We have a new patient in Room 3B who is being admitted with a progressive (gradual, advancing) decrease in mobility (movement) of his back and legs, and increase in pain located in the lumbosacral (lower back above the tailbone of the spine) area. The patient’s Primary Care Provider has sent along Computed Tomography scans (CT, a rotating x-ray emitter, detailed internal scanner) showing spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spine causing pressure on the nerves and spinal cord causing lower back pain.) and decrease of the normal lordosis (abnormal curvature lower spine, excessive inward curvature of the spine) in the thoracic vertebrae (upper and middle back). Lumbosacral
Henoch-Schonlein purpura is inflammation of the blood vessels. This causes a rash of red or purple spots on the skin.
