Thiamin is required in the diet to assist in the conversion of carbohydrates to energy, muscle contraction, and conduction of nerve signals (MedlinePlus, 2015). RDI values for thiamin suggest that 1.2mg of thiamin should be consumed per day. This diet provides an average of 0.79mg per day, less than 50% of the recommended amount [refer to Graph 1].

For radiotherapy, the doses are given in 30 − 35 fractions spread over 6 − 7 weeks, to allow healthy tissue to repair. This treatment plan is used both for conventional radiotherapy, as for proton therapy. However, if it is possible to improve the imaging techniques for proton therapy, such as proton radiography, the number of fractions may be reduced. The greatest advantage of proton therapy, i.e. its localised dose deposition can turn into a disadvantage if the position of the tumour is not precisely determined.
Dr. McCrory's research found women who consumed more than the national daily average of fiber intake tended to not be overweight, while those who consumed less than the national average were more likely to be overweight.

The usual dosage and frequency of leukeran is 0.1-0.2mg/kg*day for 3-6 weeks. It needs periodic blood controls to see if the WBC cells decrease excessively to check if there is any necessity to reduce the dosage or to stop the treatment permanently .
Pharmacologic treatments for diastolic heart failure and systolic heart failure are similar in the fact they both should include an ACEI, an ARB, beta blocker, and a diuretic. The following dosages and instructions are available for both heart failures. For ACEI, the treatment should be initiated at low dosages and slowly titrated upward if the patient tolerates them. Captopril should be taken by mouth on an empty stomach (at least 1 hour before meals) usually two to three times a day starting at 6.25 mg initially then increasing to 50 mg three times a day. If a patient is unable to tolerate an ACEI, an ARB would be beneficial because they do not create the same reaction.
The short acting medications normally work in 15 minutes and can last 6-8 hours. Short acting anticholinergics are not considered relief medications because they normally take longer to work than our beta-agonist medications. Though the lists of short acting anticholinergics are short these medications are great for people with COPD. They have fewer side effects than beta-agonist drugs and they are good bronchodilators. The long acting anticholinergic drug takes about 20 minutes to work and can last up to 24 hours, although it is thought of as a “reliever” it’s long lasting effects would make it an excellent maintenance drug for patients with COPD
They are typically applicable to patients six years old and older showing a 98.5 average sensitivity for that population and exhibiting a very low rate of false negatives. The specificity is moderate: 40%. The OAR has been recognize to reduce the use of x-rays up to 30%. Please note some studies support the use of the OAR for patients as young as 2 y/o (Plint, Bulloch, Osmond, Stiell, Dunlap, Redd, Tenenbein, Klassen, 1999). The Pittsburg Knee Rules is another series of rules to determine if the knee injury requires radiographs despite of the patients’ ages (McKinnis, 2014).
