Pathologies and Diagnosis discovered through the use of MRI

One of the diagnoses that the MRI has been credited with is Pancreatic Cancer. According to an article found in USA Today, new MRI's are now allowing for the early detection of pancreatic cancer, which usually spreads to other organs before it is detected.

Human Immunodeficiency Virus HIV Has Grown Into

Words: 784 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 68115079

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) has grown into an epidemic that has spun out of control and grown into something that needs to be addressed in a manner that everyone will finally agree that this situation has to be remedied. No longer can HIV be viewed as a way to ostracize those who most need help, nor should it be seen as a method to suppress those of lower socioeconomic status and of minority background, which so far combined, are the groups with the highest rate of HIV infection (Downer, 2009).

In order for anything to change with the HIV situation in the world, a way of dealing with this issue in a calm rational manner needs to be established. Currently, there are individuals living with HIV that have not been receiving the proper care to address their needs and their particular situation (Downer, 2009). My public health vision for the…… [Read More]

Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railway Company spokesman stated, "The settlement is consistent with the practice we've been following," said Richard Russack. He also states that the companies apologized to it's employees for running the tests and they stopped all testing when to suit was filed as they were ordered.

Many in the political and medical filed and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission themselves feel this is a landmark settlement which will halt any future discriminations. "This was the right result. It gives people reassurance that the potential harms of genetic testing are going to be taken very seriously in our society," said Wylie Burke, head of the Department of Medical History and Ethics at the University of Washington in Seattle.

This is a positive finding with reliability and validity, in the situation of a compliant population already following a low-cholesterol dietary portfolio. The results of the self-report aspect, i.e. The scaling comparison between the oat bran bread group and the strawberry group indicate that, among this compliant group those who added strawberries were more satisfied and therefore more willing to eat the added anti-oxidant food, as a result of its increased palatability.

Though I agree with the results and application of this study to control for diet, and make sure that dietary variations did not play an extreme role in results, it would be interesting to study this comparative model in a situation where participants were not compliant to another cholesterol-lowering dietary portfolio, utilizing the same blood and urine standards, i.e. To see if the results of physiological reduction and palatability survey ranking would be similar with just this dietary…… [Read More]

The symptoms are similar but type 2 can be more insidious as it is more commonly undiagnosed and could possibly have been prevented with early intervention lifestyle changes. Pain and reduced circulation in the extremities and/or long-term vision loss can also occur in type 2 as does permanent nerve damage in the eyes and extremities. Dependency on insulin is present in type 1 while in type 2 other pharmacological options and even simple lifestyle and diet changes can often suffice in the early stages of the disease, though many type 2 diabetics eventually become insulin dependant.

However, some of these may be former employees, a group that has been demonstrated to be among the strongest of candidates (Zottoli & Wanous, 2000).

The second recruiting source recommended is the internal job board. Wellpoint has a large staff from which to find a suitable candidate. The candidate will be familiar with the company and clearly seeking to build a career within the company. The employer brand will not need to be sold to internal candidates. Although the internal candidates will be the strongest, the talent pool is again limited through this recruiting source.

The third recruiting source should be an executive search firm. Although expensive, these firms can be useful for screening candidates. The recruiting message can still be controlled and the field broadened. The downside to the use of executive search firms, I addition to their cost, is that Wellpoint would lose some control over its employer…… [Read More]

The author of this report is asked to create a psychological-related test that measures something important yet psychological in nature. To that end, the author of this report is going to have a test that measure stress and anger in drivers as they commute to work in a rush hour environment. The different levels of reaction times and emotions expressed will be capture and measured so as to find out the depth and breadth of a person's problems with driving in a dicey commute.

Klinefelter Syndrome

Klinefelter syndrome is a genetic condition where a male child is born with an extra X chromosome, so that his sex chromosomes are XXY rather than XY; some people with Klinefelter syndrome have more than two X chromosomes. Klinefelter syndrome is the result of random error and is not a heritable disease. While many people think of the X chromosome as solely a sex chromosome, it plays a significant role in bodily functioning, impacting brain development and growth in addition to sexual functioning. Mental retardation and phenotypic abnormalities are associated with Klinefelter syndrome and are "directly related to the number of supernumerary X chromosomes (Chen, 2013). Klinefelter syndrome is a "form of primary testicular failure, with elevated gonadotropin levels due to lack of feedback inhibition by the pituitary gland" (Chen, 2013). This results in an androgen deficiency that causes many of the symptoms associated with Klinefelter's syndrome. Other hormone levels…… [Read More]

"Clicking to like," and "friending" are part of common vernacular, due to Facebook. The social media Website has unmistakably transformed the way people use the Internet. Facebook members read about daily current events in their "news feed" rather than from visiting the Websites of The New York Times. Users read articles posted by friends, who re-posted them from other friends. Facebook has even made regular email seem almost obsolete when it comes to socializing. Although it has not gone by the way of snail mail, traditional email is now much less important compared with Facebook messaging. Communication and the development of friendships take place within the virtual playground of Facebook. Facebook has in fact changed the ways people view the state and practice of friendship.

" This category of identifiers, is however, weak. There are apparently a list of indicators such as name and address that have to be removed from the database in order to use the DNA evidence without notifying the person. When these markers are removed, the evidence is considered public. Yet there are potentials for those markers to resurface and privacy can never be ensured. Even though Angrist is in favor of a public pool of DNA evidence for the lofty goals of science, he agrees, "de-identification is increasingly difficult." It is becoming hard to disconnect names, dates, and places from the hemoglobin and RNA. Science appreciates access to DNA because it can link certain traits with others and thereby advance scientific knowledge.

Crohn's Disease Affects the Digestive System (Journey with Crohn's, N.d.)

Crohn's disease is a serious condition that afflicts roughly half a million people in North America alone. The disease affects the bowels of a patient, anywhere between the mouth all the way to the anus, and has a wide range of symptoms associated with it. Some of the symptoms include abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting, weight loss, skin problems, arthritis, eye inflammation, lethargy, and concentration issues. Although the disease is produced by a bacterial which is introduced to the body through the environment, there are certain risks factors that make people susceptible to the disease. For example, there seems to be a genetic component to the disease and people with a family history of the disease are more susceptible to contracting the condition.

Are more encouraged by praise that is delivered physically rather than verbally -- such as by a handshake or a pat on the back rather than by a verbal "good job."

Kinesthetic learners also tend to absorb information when given a great deal of tactile stimulation. I will explore this in greater detail below.

Kinesthetic learners are generally better at expressing themselves in concrete ways. This includes expressing emotions. When kinesthetic learners interact with people who are primarily visual learners there may be significant gaps between the two in how emotions are expressed and understood. For example a kinesthetic learner might offer to change the spark plugs in her boyfriend's car while he (a visual learner) might well prefer to have gotten a card with a romantic poem in it from her.

Even the title of the tutorial 'Information architecture' leads one to contemplate exactly what it is that the process is proposing. Therefore, information architecture might best be describe as the foundations and building blocks of an informational website through a complete pre-operational design. According to 'Squishy' (the website host/guide) website design is "more important than you might think' (Webmonkey Staff, 2012).

Its importance is debatable but the process itself is one that encourages the use of an architecture geared towards specific goals and objectives. According to Squishy, the first step is to define the site's goals, which will shed light on "the all-important art of collecting client's or co-worker's opinions and assembling them in a coherent, weighted order of importance" (Webmonkey, 2012).…… [Read More]

Influence upon a psychological phenomenon

One of the most alarming trends in psychology is the increase in diagnoses of autism. No singular cause has yet to be determined to explain why autism rates have increased so rapidly, although an increase in efficacy of screening, most scientists believe, cannot entirely explain the spike in cases. A correlation between the ages of the mother of children with autism has been observed. "The older a mother is when she gives birth, the higher her child's risk of autism." (De Noon 2010). For example, "women over age 40 are 77% more likely than women under age 25 to have a child with autism" while "women under age 25 are 14% less likely than women aged 25-29 to have a child with autism" (De Noon 2010).

After a heated discussion about the morality of capital punishment, a pro-capital punishment banker offers the lawyer two million dollars to remain imprisoned for five years. Filled with pride and conviction that a life sentence is preferable to execution does him one better: "If you mean it seriously," the young lawyer states, "then I bet I'll stay not five but fifteen." With the bet on, the two men agree to the terms of the confinement, during which the lawyer is permitted unlimited access to reading materials, one musical instrument, food, wine, and tobacco.

Illegal Drug Use Among Military

Words: 1051 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Research Paper Paper #: 50241765

The first method, therefore, of curtailing use relates to the development of tougher measures for soldiers once they have failed a drug test. Prevention programs should be given a higher priority than is currently the case. With stronger prevention programs, and if commanding officers are more willing to put troops who have failed drug tests into those programs, more soldiers can see their drug use curtailed.

The second method is related to the first -- prevention programs. If stress in its various forms is a major cause of illegal drug use among soldiers, then there needs to be more awareness of the issue in the military community, and more help available to soldiers before they start using. Training for all members of the military community would allow for the creation of an informal support grid for soldiers experiencing stress.

An early report that was conducted by British physicians claimed that they had found irreversible brain damage in ten male marijuana users -- all of whom had been referred to them for medical treatment because of psychiatric illness, neurological symptoms, or drug abuse problems (Zimmer & Morgan 1997). These researchers used a brain imaging technology and forced air into the patients' brains through the spinal column, then reporting that they saw "abnormalities consistent with cerebral atrophy -- actual brain tissue shrinkage" (1997). The researchers methods were criticized and it was concluded within just a few short years that the brain imaging technique that they use was medically "risky and unreliable" (1997). Using more modern brain imaging technologies today, researchers have not found any evidence of brain damage in human marijuana users, even in those humans who smoke an average of nine marijuana cigarettes a day (1997).

Effectiveness of Mass PSA Testing in Reducing Mortality Rates

Prostate cancer screening is considered as one of the crucial steps towards dealing with the problem of prostate cancer among various patient population. Healthcare providers consider screening as a crucial issue towards improving the health and well-being of patients. In light of the significance of prostate cancer screening in health promotion, several screening tools have been developed and are utilized in the clinical setting such as digital rectal exam (DRE) and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) testing. PSA testing has received considerable attention in the recent past, particularly in relation to its impact on mortality rates. PSA testing/screening for prostate cancer remains a controversial issue in the modern healthcare setting given the variance in evidence on its impact on mortality rates. This paper examines whether PSA testing reduces morality rates based on research evidence or evidence-based practice. The analysis is carried out based…… [Read More]

Arlene's case as was explained by her husband, revealed that she underestimated the risk posed by behaviours, such as self-injury, excessive gambling and aggression. These symptoms are often exhibited by patients on the impulsive end of this kind of behaviour. The impulsive end is characterized by a lack of care/consideration for the negative consequences of actions such as self-injury due to aggression and is typified by antisocial personality disorders. As is Arlene's case, impulsive patients are not aware and neither do they evaluate the harm that could be caused by their actions, instead they engage in such actions because to them, the excitement or thrill they get from their actions far outweighs the possible risks of their behaviours.

ICU Delirium -- Evidence Review and Synthesis

Evidence Review

Luetz et al. (2014) conducted a study in which they examined how delirium management is an important aspect of intensive care treatment alongside analgesia and sedation management. The main objective of the study was to examine the implementation rate of delirium screening by healthcare professionals in the intensive care unit. To achieve the study's objectives, the researchers utilized a multinational, two-part survey in which hospital and ICU data as well as patients' data was collected and analyzed. The study found that even though 44% of hospitals and ICUs reported using a validated screening assessment, only 27% of patients had been monitored using the instrument. Additionally, the researchers found that a validated screening instrument enhances the ability of healthcare professionals to identify ICU delirium. The study provides Level III evidence, which is essential for this study to promote the use of a…… [Read More]

Statement of the Problem

For any individual, the death of a family member, friend, parent or sibling may often be overwhelming. For adolescents, the death of person close to them may prove much more traumatic as it can disrupt adolescent development. Diana Mahoney (2008), with the New England Bureau, reports in the journal article, "Navigating adolescent grief," that Erik H. Erikson created a seminal model of psychosocial development that classified adolescent years as a time period when teens form their personality. These trying teen times typically may be defined by the opposing extremes of integration and separation. Mahoney (2008) asserts that as adolescents struggle to belong and strive to be accepted by others, particularly their peers; they simultaneously struggle to become individuals. For the…… [Read More]

Prenatal care is an important aspect of pregnancy and can result in positive outcomes for both mother and infant. Low-risk pregnancies have different recommendations for prenatal care than high-risk pregnancies. Low risk pregnancies begin with medical checkups that include screening tests. This will help the mother know if the baby is healthy and if she is healthy while pregnant. Prenatal care also involves some aspect of counseling as well as education on how to handle various facets of pregnancy. Patient education could involve topics like healthy eating, any additional screening tests needed, and level of physical activity. They may also include as part of prenatal care, what to expect during labor plus after delivery.

The first trimester for a low-risk pregnancy as previously stated, involves tests, labs, and screenings. The first thing they do is determine the expectant mother's blood type and Rh factor and to look for signs of…… [Read More]

pre-employment assessment tools to select employees result in hiring better workers. If one looks at job applications, sometimes companies may ask the applicant to fill out a survey or perform a test. These preliminary actions help "weed out" potentially incompatible or unqualified applicants in order to allow for an increased focus on suitable applicants. Although logically it seems like a good way to increase the pool of qualified workers and limit exposure to unqualified or incompatible workers, consistency may be a problem.
