... of treatment. It has been used effectively to combat the nausea caused by chemotherapy, to reduce the internal pressure of the eyes of glaucoma patients, and to prevent the “wasting syndrome” in AIDS and cancer patients (“Marijuana for the Sick” A10). As an alternative to using actual marijuana, modern science has developed a synthetic form of THC, the active chemical in marijuana. However, this synthetic drug, called Marinol, is useless for most everyday treatment because it has the unpleasant side effect of being a powerful sedative.

... are constantly renewed. In the course of this turnover, they may undergo deamination, the removal of the amino group. Deamination, which takes place principally in the liver, results in the formation of ammonia. In the liver, the ammonia is quickly converted to urea, which is relatively nontoxic, and is then released into the bloodstream. In the blood, it is readily removed through the kidneys and excreted in the urine. Any disease or condition that reduces glomerular filtration or increases protein catabolism results in elevated BUN levels. Creatinine is another indicator of kidney function. Creatinine is a wa ...

... Africa, and Southeast Asia. There are over 200,000 witch doctors locally in South Africa alone. Shamans are usually the ones who hold power in their communities because they have the power to communicate with the spirits. The shaman learn from a spiritual teacher and are asked to protect people from harm, to cure the ones with poor health, and to help with affairs of the heart.

Injustice Of Abortion

... never wronged a single person. If Americans are unable to unite behind a principle which is so seemingly universal, then what will they unite behind? It is simply un-American to solve problems by killing it. On one hand, America is a peace loving country that intervenes in places like Ireland and the Middle East to end war and promote peace. On the other hand, many Americans whole heartedly support the practice of choosing to kill a baby so that the parent can avoid conflicts when the baby is born. This seems like a very contradictory and unnecessary practice. One major problem with the is the fact that people ...

... is restored and cardiac arrest is avoided, hemorrhagic shock, which can cause organ failure, is often a problem. There are 3 types of hemorrhagic shock: compensated hemorrhagic shock; uncompensated hemorrhagic shock, the shock which is reversible; and irreversible hemorrhagic shock. The most popular way of resuscitation is the use of lactated ringer's solution to make up for lost blood volume by making the cells swell and in turn restores normotension. This works fairly well but it is not the optimal treatment. PATHOPHYSIOLOGY Half of the deaths that occur annually are due to acute illness or injury, and are ...

The Immune System

... parts that work together to fight infections when pathogens or poisons invade the human body. Pathogens are disease-causing organisms such as bacteria and viruses. The immune system reacts to foreign substances through a series of steps know as the immune response. Any agent perceived as foreign by a body's immune system is called an antigen. Several types of cells may be involved in the immune response to antigens. When an antigen enters the body, it may be partly neutralized by components of the innate immune system. It may be attacked by phagocytes or by performed antibodies that act together with the comple ...

... disorder. However, only a decade ago TS was frequently misdiagnosed as schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, Sydenham's chorea, epilepsy, or nervous habits. The differentiation of TS from other tic syndromes may be no more than semantic, especially since recent genetic evidence links TS with multiple tics. Transient tics of childhood are best defined in retrospect. At times it may be difficult to distinguish children with extreme attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) from TS. Many ADHD children, on close examination, have a few phonic or motor tics, grimace, or produce noises similar to t ...

... of its causes and treatment. Affective disorders are characterized by a smorgasbord of symptoms that can be broken into manic and depressive episodes. The depressive episodes are characterized by intense feelings of sadness and despair that can become feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. Some of the symptoms of a depressive episode include anhedonia, disturbances in sleep and appetite, psychomotor retardation, loss of energy, feelings of worthlessness, guilt, difficulty thinking, indecision, and recurrent thoughts of death and suicide (Hollandsworth, Jr. 1990 ). The manic episodes are characterized ...

... plague arrived in England. But it is certain that it arrived via the ports, carried on merchant and Naval ships. However, were the infected fleas carried by the rats in the grain or bales of cloth and cotton, or on the backs of the crew, passengers or returning soldiers? Furthermore, how did the disease spread from the ports to the town and country? Via wild rodents in the countryside, by the rats and fleas in transported freight, or by the fleas on their human hosts?Although the evidence is mixed and debatable, it is suggested they all played a role. There is evidence to support that plague was caught from baggage ...

... the onset, the more possible causes it has. Think about all of the "causes" adduced fifteen years ago for AIDS! They include dope, sensation-enhancing drugs (poppers), etc. In the end, after scientific investigation, only one essential cause remains: HIV. No virus, then no disease, no matter what else is happening. By the same token, Gulf War syndrome has been attributed to a variety of causes, including, according to the Presidential Advisory Committee, these top 10 candidates: Biological warfare agents Chemical warfare agents Depleted uranium in shells, armor Infectious diseases ...
