Pivot Point In History

This paper aims to explore the assertions and idea of spirituality as being able to help in the healing process of terminally ill patients. The recognition of values of elements such as…… [Read More]

Structure of a health care organisation

The health care organisations of today are no longer only requested to provide quality medical services, but they have to ensure this medical act within a growingly complex and demanding context. For instance, the ageing of the baby boomers puts additional strains on the health care institutions as the demand and the level of pretensions increases. Then, the cost of the medical act is also a stringent issue, specifically in the context of the internationalised economic crisis, but also the ongoing dispute over health care provision and coverage by the state and the private institutions.

Furthermore, the health care providers must also respond to the advancement of technology by integrating the…… [Read More]

Whether someone views something as a placebo or not from a medical standpoint, if it improves the health and well-being of a patient then it is good for that patient, and good for the medical community as a whole (Ambrose, 2007).

The second reason for the health care system to allow alternative medicine is that people believe in it in the same way that they believe in placebo pills if they are not told that they are placebos (Ambrose, 2007). There will always be some people who do not think that these things work, and they might not work for them, but there are many people who have been helped by non-traditional medical practices, just as there are many people who have been helped by more traditional means (Ambrose, 2007).

Christian Biotechnology: Not a Contradiction in Terms

Presented with the idea of "Bioethics" most people in the scientific community today immediately get the impression of repressive, Luddite forces wishing to stifle research and advancement in the name of morality and God. Unfortunately, this stereotype too often holds true. If one looks over the many independent sites on the Internet regarding bioethics, reads popular magazines and publications, or browses library shelves for books on bioethics, the message seems quite frequently negative. Many Christians --and particularly those in conservative camps-- seem to have a deep seated fear of many elements of biotechnology. While this is slightly less problematic with such advances as genetically modified plants and animals (which are targeted more by liberal neo-pagans and primitivists), it is certainly very true in the field of medical experimentation and especially stem cell and embryonic research. In many ways, this dedication to an anti-technology…… [Read More]

It means that the business elements are not neutral tools that merely enhance efficiency without impinging on medical science itself; rather, the science, the practice, and the business of medicine are intertwined at the most fundamental level. What exactly are these elements, and where did they come from?

Order new kind of enterprise boomed in the American economy in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, creating organizational changes that some would call a second industrial revolution. This new enterprise changed the workplace, the nature of work, and its products. Its productive features included concentration in large plants, labor specialization, process standardization, monopoly of technology, and professional management.

New Technology the Best Cure

Taken in isolation, some of the new, minimally-invasive procedures are less expensive by far, when analyzed on a procedure-by-procedure basis, than previous significant surgical interventions, as demonstrated below:

Procedure

Cost

Estimated duration of 'cure'

CABG

5-7 years

PCI (percutaneous coronary intervention

3-5 years

Based on the above analysis, it would appear to be clear that a PCI is more cost-effective than CABG procedures. This may not be true when all costs are considered, however. The logic of comparison needs to include additional factors than the 'cure' period and the direct procedural costs.

CABG cost discussion

CABG can vary from a simple mammary artery, single bypass to a 3- to 5-vessel bypass graft operation with the use of saphenous vein grafts from the leg. Many of the single-artery bypass operations have been overtaken by PCI in the past few years, as the need to 'open' single vessels has been taken in…… [Read More]

Hypnosis

In his study, "Cognitive Hypnotherapy in the Management of Pain," Dowd (2001) reports that, "Several theories have been proposed to account for the effect of hypnosis.

Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science

According to author and surgeon Atul Gawande, the practice of medicine, despite its veneer of scientific objectivity, is often based more in art and subjective impressions than science. In his book A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science (which is part memoir and part philosophical rumination on the state of modern medicine), Gawande examines various types of medical errors and misreadings in his own career and others. Intentionally or not, the effect upon the reader is often unsettling, and although Gawande makes suggestions for how to improve the practice of medicine, he implies that mistakes are unavoidable because patients and doctors are human. Even statistics elude the unpredictability of medicine. "In psychology, there's something called the broken-leg problem.

Ayurvedic health care system, which is a 2000-year-old comprehensive and holistic system of health care with roots in the Indian subcontinent. Ayurvedic medicine includes various phytocompounds (plant-based medicines) that can be used internally or topically. While research has yet to use sufficient randomly selected clinical trials, empirical evidence does support the use of some Ayurvedic preparations and treatments in nursing. The specific implications for evidence-based practice are discussed in this paper.

The Vedas refer to a canon of Hindu spiritual texts penned about 2000 years ago, and the Ayurveda is located within this canon. However, the Ayurvedic system of medicine evolved over time and is not contained in a single compendium any more than allopathic medicine is. Rather, a "systematic development" of Ayurveda can be traced throughout Indian history until the postmodern era (Narayanaswamy, 1981).

Homeopathic Remedies for Anxiety

Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a branch of medical science which mainly deals with medicines. This system was invented by a German medical practitioner, Samuel Christian Hahnemann (1755). It is combination of Greek words Homeo and Pathos. Homeo means similar in nature and pathos means treatment or cure. Together the term Homeopathy means a branch of medical science which cures the disease through similar effect. In this system of medicines, the drug is similar to the disease in nature and the effects produced by the medicine are used to nullify the effects of the disease. Hence it follows the rule of 'like can cure like'.

People believe in its harm free nature, hence, prefer to use it (as cited in Shand et al., 2005).
