The Pathophysiology of CVI and DVT

Words: 1037 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 65744731

Disorders of the Veins and Arteries
Pathophysiology of Chronic Venous Insufficiency and Deep Venous Thrombosis
The pathophysiology of Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is either obstruction or reflux of venous blood flow. It can develop from the protracted valvular incompetence of the superficial veins, deep veins or the perforating veins that connect them. In all these cases the result is venous hypertension of the lower extremities. The bicuspid valve which is located in the superficial and deep veins assists in ensuring that blood is pumped towards the heart and it prevents blood from refluxing towards the feet when the patient is standing in an upright position (Eberhardt & Raffetto, 2014). Perforating veins valve function by preventing the reflux of blood from the deep veins into the superficial veins. In normal conditions, when a patient is standing erect, venous return is pulsatile and the valves will open and close about 20 times…… [Read More]

Blood by Suzan-Lori Sparks expands on the main theme of society's unfair disregard for its people of low condition in general, for women, and for adulterers. Hester La Negrita, the protagonist, is an African-American woman who struggles to survive in poverty along with her five base-born children. The family's outcast status is portrayed as a direct inducer and accelerator of emotional suffering, poverty, lack of education, and sexual exploitation.

(A) From a structural perspective, In the Blood is constructed in two acts and nine scenes, employing a linear plotline (ush, 2005). In this sense, the play debuts with the equilibrium of Hester striving to provide for her children in meager conditions, the inciting incident represented by the suggestion to seek help from the available former lovers and fathers of her children, the major dramatic question of whether or not she will attain it, the developing action as Hester approaches everend…… [Read More]

blood ion levels, particularly sodium, potassium, and calcium levels, if there is a decrease in overall blood flow to the kidneys. A full credit answer will discuss the mechanisms at the cellular and chemical level.

Kidney failure: What occurs when there is a decrease in blood flow to the kidneys?

A decrease in blood flow to the kidneys can lead to complete organ failure at worst or at minimum severely disrupt the body's state of homeostasis. The kidneys play a critical role in the regulation of electrolytes, particularly sodium, potassium, and calcium. As their name suggests electrolytes, or ions, "are the charged particles in body fluids that help transmit electrical impulses for proper nerve, heart, and muscle function" (Astle 2005). In a healthy organism, positive and negative ions are in a state of equal balance. Decrease in blood flow to the kidneys severely disrupts the body's ability to not only…… [Read More]

Night of September 30th 1919

Words: 1756 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 20286132

Stockley devotes much of his narrative to explaining the psychological implications of the massacre, specifically how it has impacted both blacks and whites in their mentality of Southern society and politics. He argues, "it will not be enough to make the case that what occurred in Phillips County had to do with economics and power" (Stockley, xix). Rather it is an understanding and acknowledgement of the South's violent past that has hitherto been ignored and neglected.

Although Stockley presents a convincing argument for how this event has shaped southern thinking in terms of intra-racial history. view this book more as a social framing for the events of the Elaine Massacre. Stockley fully captures the social, economic and political circumstances that surrounded this event and increases our understanding of historical memory. However, his claim that both whites and blacks have not fully embraced the South's violent past seems to be a…… [Read More]

I thought Stockley's account was riveting; he combined a historical non-fiction with the action packed style of a legal thriller. As a result, this book was both highly entertaining and emotionally riveting. It is evident that Stockley did not see this book as merely a story about the Elaine Massacre, but a stage upon which he could present his own interpretation of how the Elaine Massacre impacted the real racial history of the South. Stockley devotes much of his narrative to explaining the psychological implications of the massacre, specifically how it has impacted both blacks and whites in their mentality of Southern society and politics.

Stockley fully captures the social, economic and political circumstances that surrounded this event and increases our understanding of historical memory. However, his claim that both whites and blacks have not fully embraced the South's violent past seems to be a bit thin. The strength of book lies in the fact that he carefully documents the legal understanding of these events, and not only how whites benefited from the Elaine Massacre, but how African-Americans also took advantage of this event to further their position. In effect, he digs into the past to find out the truth of an entire social movement surrounding violence within the South. I thoroughly enjoyed this read and would recommend it to others.

Organelle Functioning in the Human Cell

a&P Lab

Design Project -- A&P Lab

Ammonia (NH3) is produced by cells located throughout the body; most of the production occurring in the intestines, liver, and the kidney, where it is used to produce urea. Ammonia is particularly toxic to brain cells, and high levels of blood ammonia can also lead to organ failure. The imaginary organelle referred to as a hydrosome functions in a manner that decreases the blood ammonia levels in people, thereby circumventing the need for medications such as to treatment to prevent hepatic encephalopathy and conditions associated with a failing liver. The hydrosome functions similarly to a primary lysosome, also containing a highly acidic interior with lytic enzymes called hydrolases. However, the waste disposal that the hydrosome conducts serves to convert ammonia to a water-soluble waste that is then excreted by the kidneys.

Cold Punishment Capital Punishment In

Words: 334 Length: 1 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 79755768

¶ … Cold Punishment

Capital Punishment: In Cold Blood

The very fact that Truman Capote wrote in Cold Blood, and that the book has persisted in popularity and controversy over the decades since it was published, is an argument against capital punishment. In Cold Blood is not really the story is a murder, or of the punishment of that murder, but rather a story of several lives. The immediacy and urgency of these lives is heightened by the knowledge of how each life in the book ends, and this makes in Cold Blood compelling where it otherwise would have been a well-written yet fairly mundane biography, but this intensity and the public attention to the book stem from somewhere else as well. At one point, Capote quotes the lawyer, Mr. Fleming, as saying, "Remember, all we can hope is to save your lives" (Capote 266). This is not really true,…… [Read More]
