Sepsis in Sickle Cell Patient (Slide Presentation)

IntroductionAn infection is a state in which microorganisms survive and reproduce in the host’s tissues. In many instances, no noticeable changes(or symptoms) are apparent.An infectious disease results when the organism produces sufficient tissue damage through many different mechanisms.SepsisSepsis is a gamut of diseases, where there is a systemic response by the patient or host to a specific infection. Presentation ranges from non-localised symptoms to very severe signs with attestat...

Introduction to Anaesthesia and Sedation

IntroductionEffective communication among healthcare providers and patients has gotten noticed as an essential factor in unfavorable patient well-being results. The Join Commission campaign of "Anesthesia and Sedation” got printed in June 2014 in an attempt to spread understanding of precautions, risks, and various sorts of information to provide to individuals. The campaign aims at people who experience a condition that needs tranquility (The Joint Commission, 2014)

A Study On Screening And Quantification Of Phytochemicals In The Aqueous Extract Of Vernonia Amygdalina Leaf

ABSTRACTVernonia amygdalina (V.amygdalina) is a tropical plant whose leaves have been proven to have medicinal benefits. It has been used by natives as a remedy against constipation, malaria fever, high blood pressure and many bacterial infections, due to its proven antimicrobial activity. Recently, V.amygdalina has been used as an ethinomedicinal solution to persistent fever, headache, and joint pain associated with AIDS. Previous studies of the aqueous leaf extracts...

PSG 201 Lesson Note: Ageing in Physiology

This is time related deterioration of the physiological function necessary for survival and fertility. Maximum life span- the maximum number of years a member of a specie has been known to survive. This maximum life span depends on the special Life expectancy: the age at half the population still survive, this is not the characteristics of specie or population. Why do they age? 1 The hereditary factor depending on what's going on the linage 2 loss of cellular mass and ability o...

Head and Neck Anatomy

The head and neck are two examples of the perfect anatomical marriage between form and function, mixed with a dash of complexity. The neck is resilient enough to sustain a five kilogram weight 24/7, yet sufficiently mobile to move it in several directions. On the other end, the head is durable enough to protect the fragile brain but intricately designed to facilitate the passage of the complex neurovascular network. In this topic page, we’ll learn about various anatomical aspects of the hea...

ElectroPhysiology of the Heart

Cardiac muscle, like skeletal muscle, is a striated muscle and much of the mechanism of contraction is similar between the two muscle types. The electrophysiology of the two muscles differs: First ,the cardiac action potential is not initiated by neural activity. Instead, specialized cardiac muscle tissue in the heart itself initiates the action potential, which then spreads directly from muscle cell to muscle cell. Neural influences have only a modulatory effect on the heart rate. Second, th...

Respiratory System and Functional Anatomy

AbstractThe functional anatomy of the respiratory system and mechanism of respiration.The respiratory system consists of nostrils, nasopharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, alveoli duct and alveoli. The structures included from nostrils to terminal bronchioles will have 16 divisions, while the remaining structures show 7 divisions, giving a total of 23 divisions for the respiratory tract. The divisions are formed by the repeated branching of each segment of the tract.Structures like...

Mechanisms of General Anesthesia

IntroductionThe branch of pharmacology that relates drug concentra￾tion to biologic effect is known as pharmacodynamics. Major goals of this area of study are determining the proper dose to administer to elicit the desired effect while avoiding toxicity. Although pharmacokinetics can be used to deter￾mine dosing requirements necessary to maintain a particu￾lar drug concentration, it is the relationship between drug concentration and effect that ultimately decides appropri￾ate dosi...

FRM 512 (Forest Protection and Conservation): Tree Diseases Affecting Forest Tree Species

Ten Tree diseases affecting forest tree speciesA) Common name: Root rot diseaseBotanical name: Cochliobolus sativus.Literature review: Root rot disease is a disease that attacks the roots of trees growing in wet or damp soil. Prolonged exposure to excess water causes waterlogging, which interferes with aeration of the roots, leading to low oxygenation and decay.Causative Agent: Phytophthora spp. Particularly species P.cinnamomi. Others include Pythium, Rhizoctonia and Fusarium.....B) Common n...
