Do you have a kid approaching middle school age? Chances are your child has already done some school projects using the family computer. He’s had to research the Web, or type and print out a report.
Now you may be considering the purchase of another device to support his needs as he heads into tween hood, high school and beyond. What is best – a laptop or a tablet? What device will be more advantageous for schoolwork, and also support the social networking and game playing that kids will inevitably want to do?Here are some examples of how kids are using technology in schools.
Online and visual learning: Many teachers have incorporated videos of lessons into their plan, either of themselves teaching the lesson, or from an outside source. Often, watching an assigned video is part of the homework.
Practicing skills: Playing math games are a fun way for kids to practice skills or math facts. Students also practice test taking or other skills with online games.
Researching topics: At an early age, schoolchildren start using the Internet to find information about topics they are learning about. The average young student knows all about Wikipedia, which has all but replaced the encyclopedias we used to use.
Reading: Textbooks and literature are becoming more available in e-book format. This reduces the need for students to lug heavy books to and fro.
Producing content: Students have become accustomed to using computers for typing and printing traditional papers and reports. In addition, technology makes it easier to create more involved projects, such as slideshows or Power Point presentations, or videos. Many classrooms post their own content in a class website, showing what they’ve learned.
Taking and submitting tests: teachers can administer online tests. At our school, band students can videotape and post music performances online which the teacher watches and grades at his convenience. This frees up time for both student and teacher.
Doing homework together: using Skype or Facetime, kids can collaborate with each other.
Communicating and networking: Almost every school has a website now. Teachers use sites like Schoolrack.com to communicate to students and parents what is going on in the classroom. They post homework assignments and classroom news on these sites. Our schools use Zangle.com to post grades throughout the year so families can stay on top of their students’ status. School groups (like band) often use a social media site like Facebook to communicate to all group members and their parents.
You can count on kids wanting to use their device for some popular extracurricular activities – social networking, gaming, and possibly blogging.
Social networking: A parent can only manage to hold the kids off from joining Facebook or Twitter for so long. Each of the social networking sites at this time offers free and easy access whether you are on a laptop, tablet or mobile phone. However, sometimes the mobile or tablet app is more difficult to navigate than the full version due to the limited display area.
Gaming: The gaming habits of your child may be a more decisive factor in choosing a device. Will you want permit them to use the device for games? Even if you had been strict about video games when they were young, as they get older they will want more freedom to play games like their peers are playing. So you should consider how involved your child is in gaming. Does he already do most of his games on another system, like a Playstation? Or is he hogging the family computer on weekends to do Minecraft with his friends? If the kid is into any PC-based games at all, a laptop would be preferable. Popular games like Minecraft (is there any kid that doesn’t play Minecraft?) work on a PC or laptop; even the full paid version of the tablet app just isn’t the same. As always, it will be up to the parent to monitor game time usage as appropriate.
Blogging: Is your enterprising kid doing any blogging? Blogging platforms like WordPress and Blogger have made apps that are available for tablet use, but they are nowhere near as powerful as the real on-your-PC platform.
Tablets are smaller, thinner and lighter than traditional laptops, weighing under 2 pounds. They can be held with one hand and slipped into a large purse. Except for some ultrabooks, most laptops are much bigger and heavier, between 3-10 lbs. That can weigh down a backpack.The delicate size of a tablet warrants an additional purchase of a protective case, which will add to the expense and weight of the unit. Laptop carriers often choose a specially padded backpack or bag also, to give extra protection. The small size of a tablet also lends itself to careless handling, and I guarantee you will find that thing wedged in between your sofa cushions at least once. We are talking about kids, after all.Portability for a parent is not always a good thing. It will become easier for your child to view inappropriate things on the Internet, or misuse social networking, with a portable device. So Parental Guidance is Suggested!Laptops still function as a surrogate for desktop computers. They are generally equipped with everything you need for office or school based functions. Most laptops come with software for all the basic functions: word processing, spreadsheets, browser, wifi, etc. A laptop is a self-contained computer, which means you do not need to plug it into or sync to another computer to do any kind of setup.Printing that book report with a tablet might be a little dicier, depending on what type of printer you have. With a laptop printing is a familiar procedure, either with a printer cable, a wireless printer, or a networked printer. Printing from a tablet requires some extra work-arounds. Depending on your tablet, you’ll have to go through some combination of steps which might include getting a special app, setting up cloud printing, or getting a wifi or Bluetooth printer.One advantage of Windows laptops is that your child will be able to view virtually all videos that he needs to watch regardless of format. On our tablet, we initially had trouble accessing some of the teacher videos because the format was not supported by Apple. There’s still stuff out there that is not compatible with Apple. However, later that year, the teacher had her videos revamped so that they could be viewed on the iPad.Both laptops and tablets have cross-connectivity with other devices that your children might encounter. For example, if they want to make a video or sideshow presentation, they can just connect the device with the appropriate cable to a projector at the school. You just have to purchase the appropriate connector.You need software for laptops, and apps for tablets. While the availability of apps is rapidly growing, there are still a lot more software choices out there than apps.In general, tablets do not have as much processing power as traditional laptops. Although the tablet can do high demand tasks, it is designed and marketed for quick and easy use with low demand tasks like e-mailing, web browsing, or playing tunes. For high-power tasks, graphics, editing video, or multi-tasking, the laptop beats the tablet. For playing Minecraft and mulitplayer online games, you use a beefed up laptop, not an iPad.Data storage capacity will be much greater with a laptop. Hard drives on tablets (not tablet PCs) come with 16-128 gigabytes of storage, and getting the maximum amount of storage will cost more. There are ways (some more convoluted than others, depending on the brand of tablet) to store or backup your files from a tablet. Alternatively, your child can opt for “the cloud” (like Dropbox or iCloud) to store documents and files.Tablets run with lower power requirements. A battery on a fully charged tablet can last up to eight, maybe ten hours. On the other hand, laptops run more powerful hardware, and have shorter battery running times, roughly 3-4 hours.Screen size of a laptop is going to be bigger than a tablet, therefore easier on the eyes. Screen resolutions are higher as well. Laptop screens flip up and can be tilted at any angle to suit the viewer. Tablet screens can only stand up if you purchase a separate stand, and most stands only have a few preset angles for displaying your screen.Input via typing is easier on a laptop with a regular alphanumeric keyboard, especially if the user has learned touch typing. Even if you get a bluetooth keyboard* for the tablet, that keyboard will tend to be smaller. And while navigating around websites is really neat on a touchscreen, cutting and pasting and editing is just easier with a mouse or mousepad.Input via freehand and drawing using your finger or a stylus is easier on a tablet screen, when you have the right app.For quick tasks like web browsing, or watching a video, or reading some text, it’s quicker and easier to pick up a tablet. The whole process of opening and powering up a laptop seems quite tedious.The laptop’s main drawback is size and

You are unable to get out of the vehicle and the area is so isolated that the chances of you being spotted is less. How the help will arrive? It may take several hours for the authorities to even know that you are in trouble. For this problem Telematics can be the solution.The technology which is used for sending, receiving and storing computerized information is generally termed as Telematics. Now this technology is commonly used for automobile automation and thus referred as Vehicle Telematics. In short Telematics is a vehicle system which combines both GPS and cellular technologies.
American automobile giant General Motors first introduced the concept of vehicle Telematics in 1996 as an automatic safety tool for vehicles. The service is termed as ‘ ON STAR ‘ and it provides needful services in an emergency. There will be a small console panel in the dash board or in the over head console of the Onstar Service enabled vechicle. By pressing the Blue Onstar button,the driver can communicate with the live or virtual advisor in the Onstar service centre. The red button in the console panel is meant for emergency . Basically Onstar service is a combination of Cellular, Voice Recognition , GPS, Vehicle Telemetry technologies. In which cellular service is voice activated and hands free.
The GPS receiver in the vehicle receives the satellite signals and determines the position of the vehicle. This information is stored in the Onstar Hardware in the vehicle. When the driver presses the Onstar button or the emergency button or when he deploys the air bag , a phone call will be generated to the Onstar Control Centre along with the GPS location data. Thus the position of the vehicle and the consumer data will be available to the Onstar advisor by the same time.
The
Onstar is also acting as an Event Data Recorder in case of an emergency. All these programs are together referred as Automatic Crash Notification System (ACNS). Sensors, Sensing Diagnostic Module(Event Data Recorder),Vehicle Command Interface Module (VCIM), Cellular Antenna are the four main parts of ACNS. During the event of a crash or in an emergency, data will be passed to the Sensor Diagnostic Module SDM from the sensors. Accelerometer in the SDM evaluates the intensity of the crash and sends these information to the VCIM. VCIM with the help of cellular antenna sends these data to the Onstar Control Centre. Even if there is no information from the sensors, control centre can be activated by the Airbag notification system .
TELEMATICS SERVICES:
Air bag Deployment notification, Vehicle Collision Notification ,Crisis Assistant, Customer relations/Vehicile Info, Dealer Service Contact, Destination Download & Guidance, Emergency Service, Google Search, Hands Free Calling, Remote Door Lock/ Unlock, Remote Horn/Light, Ride Assistant, Sent to Navigation Function, Stolen Vehicle Tracking Assistant, Vehicle Locater are the main Telematic services.TELEMATICS APPLICATIONS:
The following are the applications of Telematics.
1.Vehicile Tracking: GPS Tracking Device, GPS Tracking Server , User Interface are the main components in Vehicle Tracking process. In which the GPS Tracking Device sends the vehicle location, ON Head/Tail light, battery status information to the Central server.GPS Tracking device receives the data from the Tracking Device, stores it and makes it available to the customer as per request. Customer can access these information through User Interface.
2.Asset Management: Telematics can be used to manage a group of vehicles in a company. Data from the engine sensors can be analyzed and can be used for better performance.
3.Intellegent Transport: Timing of the buses , trains and other metro services can be made available to the consumer. Based on the present location of the bus and the traffic on the streets, exact timing of the bus can be announced to the customer.
4.Toll Collection: Details of vehicle passing through a particular point can be identified by special units placed there and then the toll can be collected through debit/credit cards.
5.Stolen Vehicle Tracking: This is the most important application of Telematics. When a vehicle is reported as stolen , a particular signal is sent to the vehicle and thus activates a Transmitter. The signals from this Transmitter can easily be located by the police. The speed of the stolen vehicle can be controlled and also can prevent the restarting by the control center operator .
Another important feature of Telematics based security system is the ‘Geo-Fencing’. These are the electronic fencing of about 100m diameter around the vehicle. When somebody tries to move the vehicle , an alert and a running commentary will be provided to the control centre.
6. Driver Identity System:
7.Trailor Tracking:
8.Mobile Internet:

Vehicle manufacturers can improve their product performance and can offer better customer relationships through Telematics. But the hardware and integration of this system can be costly. Also a part or full expenditure of the monitoring and response will be on the customer .This creates a –ve approach towards Telematics.Even though mass application of the Telematics can change the way we drive and make us more secure on the move.If you are looking to increase your internet speed without any expensive software then you came to right place. I will tell you how to increase your internet speed up to 50%-60 % with few clicks. I have applied this trick to my GPRS dial-up connection and my internet connection speed increased to almost double. Earlier I used to get 2-3 KB/s in Opera download and around 3-5 KB/s in Gigaget download manager. But after tweaking my internet settings I am getting 3-5 KB/s in Opera download and around 5-8 KB/s in Gigaget download manager. Sometimes Gigaget download manager crosses the speed of 12 KB/s. I must say that Google DNS is faster than my ISP and is one the best public DNS server.
For Google DNS setup please do the following. I advise you to write your internet setting information before you make any changes.Right
click on “My Network Places” and
click on properties. This will open “Network
Connections” where you can see all LAN Cards, Dial-Up and Broadband
connections. If you cannot find “My Network Places” on desktop then you can go
to “Control Panel”->” Network and
Internet Connections”->” Network Connections” (Category View) or “Control Panel”->”Network Connections” (Classic
View).Now
select your internet connection which you use to connect to internet. Again
right click on it and select properties. This will open your internet
connection properties.Go
to networking tab and select “Internet
Protocol (TCP/IP)” and click on properties button. This will pop out “Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties”
window.Here comes the real thing, if you have static IP address along with DNS server then please write that information for later reference. You don’t need to change IP address only change Preferred DNS Server address to “8.8.8.8” and Alternate DNS Server address to “8.8.4.4”. Those who have dynamic IP address only need to select “Use the following DNS Server addresses” and enter the following address Preferred DNS Server address to “8.8.8.8” and Alternate DNS Server address to “8.8.4.4”. Now you can dial your internet connection and start surfing with some improved speed. Don’t forget to say thanks to Google public domain service.You can also configure your Mobile Phones, PDA,
Linux, MAC, routers to use this Google Public DNS and can enjoy better internet service.

Primary DNS: 8.8.8.8Secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7 then you need to choose “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)” i

Top 10 Things Not To Say To Cancer Patients

With the increasing average age of Americans, more and more patients presenting for surgery and anesthesia are older or elderly. Some surgeries are elective and others will be emergencies.
Many people are living longer and are doing so with relatively good health. Modern medicine has also made it possible to extend life, even while being treated for serious health conditions.
There are normal changes in how the body works as we age. In addition, older people have more serious health issues. All of these things must be taken into account when administering an anesthetic.The overall effects of age on the heart lead to a more dramatic drop in blood pressure when anesthesia is induced. If the patient is also dehydrated or has very high or very low blood pressure to begin with, this drop can be even more pronounced and may become dangerous if not attended to and treated right away by the anesthesiologist. Care must be taken in drug selection and dosing for the induction of anesthesia, since the elderly patient’s ability to compensate for these changes may be limited or impaired.
The anesthesiologist must also be aware the the time it takes for blood to circulate in the body takes longer in older people, so medicines given in the IV will take longer to take effect.While the normal changes to the heart of aging are complex, the overall function of the heart may be fairly well preserved in the absence of heart disease. Surgery and anesthesia are a stress on the body, however, like moderate exercise. Under anesthesia, the effects of age on the heart may be more likely to be seen.
As we get older, we have a lower resting heart rate and a decreased ability to increase our heart rate during physical or physiologic stress. This can become important during surgery and anesthesia. If we aren’t able to maintain our cardiac output (determined by the heart rate and the amount of blood pumped with the heart’s contraction), it makes it much more difficult for our body’s to compensate for the stress that may accompany surgery and anesthesia.
Of course, any preexisting cardiac disease further complicates this issue. The anesthesiologist must have a thorough understanding of cardiac physiology (both normal and abnormal) in order to plan the most effective–and safe–anesthetic possible in these situations.Because oxygen levels may be lower, it may be advisable to use higher concentrations of oxygen while under anesthesia.
Careful selection of ventilator settings can help reduce overdistention and collapse of small airways. Airway pressures should be monitored and adjusted to compensate for changes in the ability of the lungs and chest wall to expand and relax.
Postoperative oxygen may be needed and all patients, but especially the elderly with preexisting lung disease, should be instructed to use an incentive spirometer (device to help reexpand the lungs by deep breathing). Walking early in the postoperative course also helps decrease pulmonary complications from anesthesia and surgery.The lungs have a natural elasticity to them. This gives them the ability to expand and then recoil appropriately with breathing and to adapt to changes in the depth and pattern of breathing.
As we get older, the elasticity of our lungs decreases. The overall effect is that smaller airways can collapse. Those collapsed areas are then not available to help absorb oxygen into the blood and get the carbon dioxide (waste gas) out. The body may take longer to respond to changes in oxygen levels, and overall oxygen levels may be lower.
The chest wall, itself, may also become more rigid and the muscles of breathing may weaken.
Pneumonia may be more likely in the postoperative period.Examination of the airway preoperatively is necessary to predict and prepare for any difficulties with patient (placement of the breathing tube).
Precautions should be taken to prevent aspiration pneumonia.
Administration of antacids before anesthesia to high-risk patients.
Induction techniques that block acid from rising up from the stomach into the throat and then into the lungs (called “cricoid pressure or Sellinger maneuver- an assistant pushes on the hard cartilage on the front of the neck to push against the food pipe and close it off to keep acid down).
Ensure that airway reflexes have returned by removing the breathing tube only once the patient is fully conscious.
The airway is the passageway to get air with it’s vital oxygen to the inside of the body and get waste gas like carbon dioxide, out. The airway includes the mouth, nose, throat, voicebox (larynx) and windpipe. Related structures and the lungs may be included in this term, depending on the context.
In older people, there are changes in the airway that occur with normal aging. The jaw and neck may have limited mobility due to arthritis. This can make placement of the breathing tube more difficult.
In addition, reflexes like coughing and gagging may be impaired. If the upper airway cannot be cleared of patient fusion; then aspiration of these secretions into the lungs may be more of a potential complication. Aspiration pneumonia is a serious condition that may become life-threatening.Metabolism in general, slows as we age. The ability and speed with which the liver and kidneys clear toxins and medications from the body may be significantly different in the elderly.
Anesthesiologists must understand the changes that occur and how each drug administered to an elderly patient is handled by the body. Older patients may need less medication if the drug is cleared more slowly.
Electrolytes such as potassium are also regulated by the kidney. If there are risk factors that impair kidney function, electrolyte abnormalities may be more likely and can lead to problems during and after surgery. Abnormalities with heart rhythm and muscle weakness are examples of complications of electolyte disturbances.
Older patients are more prone to mental decline after surgery and anesthesia. While postoperative cognitive dysfunction was presumed to be the result of general anesthesia’s effects on the brain, studies have now shown that this decline can occur regardless of the type of anesthesia used. Current theories speculate that factors related to illness and the stress of surgery, along with changes that occur in a body trying to heal (inflammatory mediators and hormone changes) may contribute to this phenomenon.
The kidneys lie along the borders of the Psoas muscles and are therefore obliquely placed. The position of the liver causes the right Kidney to be lower than the left. The Adult Kidney weighs about 150g. The kidneys are supported by the perirenal fat (which is enclosed in the perirenal fascia), the renal vascular pedicle, abdominal muscle tone, and the general bulk of the abdominal viscera. Variations in these factors permit variations in the degree of the renal mobidity. The average descent on inspiration or on assuming the upright position is 4-5cm.The Adult Ureter is about 30cm long, varying in direct relation to the height of the individual. It follows a rather smooth S curve. Areas of relative narrowing are foundat the ureteropelvic junctionwhere the ureter crosses over the iliac vessels, and where it passes through the bladder wall.The Adult bladder normally has a capacity of 350ml-450ml. Where empty, the Adult bladder lies behind the pubic symphysis and is largely a pelvic organ.The Kidneys play a central role in the maintenance of a constant internal environment for body cells in response to cellular catabolism and wide variations of dietary intake. It achieves this by regulating extracellular http://www.doctorbittercom.charterly.com and solute concentrations by the excretion of salts, water, metabolic waste products and foreign substances. The process involves the production of a plasma Ultrafiltration of 180L per day. This passes down to about 2 million tubules from which essential solutes and water reasbsorbed into the blood and non-essential solutes secreted from the blood into the remaining fluid which becomes the final urine. The other functions of the kidney incude hormone production and the production of glucose by breaking down other non-carbohydrate substrates (gluconeogenesis).Main Urologic symptomsSystemic manifestations, local and referre pain (Kidney pain, Pseudorenal pain, ureteral pain, vesical pain, prostatic pain, testicular pain, epididymal pain, back and leg pain), gastrointestinal symptoms of urologic disease, symptoms related to the act of urination (frequency, nocturia and Urgency, burning sensation during urination, symptoms of prostatic obstruction, symptoms of urethral obstruction, incontinence, oliguria and anuria, Pneumaturia, cloudy urine, bloody urine, enuresis (an inability to control urination. Use of the term is usually limited to describing individuals old enough to be expected to exercise such control) ), other objective manifestations (Urethral discharge, skin lesions of the external genitalia, visible or palpable masses, edema, bloody

out of bed, but it will only benefit you more if you do it more than
once a day. The daily energy routine consists of the following
techniques: The Three Thumps – this technique will “boost
and restore energy, increase strength and vitality, and strengthen the
immune system.”The Cross Crawl – this technique will “balance
and harmonize energy, improve coordination, and clear thinking.”The
Wayne Cook Posture – this technique will “focus the mind, allow you to
untangle inner chaos, see with better perspective, think more clearly
and learn more proficiently.”The Crown Pull – this technique
will “relieve mental congestion and headaches, clear and refresh the
mind, sharpen memory, and open the crown chakra to
higher inspiration.”Connecting Heaven and Earth – this
technique will “open the meridians, expel toxic energies, and stimulate
fresh energy to flow through the joints.”The Celtic Weave –
this technique will “pulse your auric energies outward
and strengthen them, and connect all your energies together so they
operate as a single web.”The Hook Up – this technique will
“get strange flows moving, strengthen auric field, leave you feeling
whole again. It will calm you and help you feel connected.”The
Zip Up – this technique will “boost confidence, clear your thoughts,
and protect you from negative energy that may be around you.”Step

So, don’t hesitate to try it…Seasonality has become a fashion statement on the dining scene. However, eating seasonally has been exactly “what the doctor ordered” since antiquity.Food was the ‘drug of choice’ in all of the ancient medical systems in Europe, India and China. Whilst the medical theories in each differed, they shared a common philosophy: illness is the result of imbalances within the body and between the body and the environment. Man lives within nature and staying in harmony with nature’s rhythms is essential for good health. The word disease is literally “dis-ease” or physical disharmony. Diet plays a significant role in correcting imbalances and is an important factor in healing the body. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is based on the cosmic theory of Yin and Yang; and the laws of the Five Elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water). These elements correspond with organs in the body. Other groups of five such as five flavours, five seasons etc are also involved in TCM. The principles, development of which is credited to the Emperor Huang Di – also known as the Yellow Emperor (2698 – 2589 BCE) – are documented in the ancient Chinese medical classic Huang Di Nei Jing . It remains a respected reference source in TCM to this day.

So, don’t hesitate to try it…Seasonality has become a fashion statement on the dining scene. However, eating seasonally has been exactly “what the doctor ordered” since antiquity.Food was the ‘drug of choice’ in all of the ancient medical systems in Europe, India and China. Whilst the medical theories in each differed, they shared a common philosophy: illness is the result of imbalances within the body and between the body and the environment. Man lives within nature and staying in harmony with nature’s rhythms is essential for good health. The word disease is literally “dis-ease” or physical disharmony. Diet plays a significant role in correcting imbalances and is an important factor in healing the body. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is based on the cosmic theory of Yin and Yang; and the laws of the Five Elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water). These elements correspond with organs in the body. Other groups of five such as five flavours, five seasons etc are also involved in TCM. The principles, development of which is credited to the Emperor Huang Di – also known as the Yellow Emperor (2698 – 2589 BCE) – are documented in the ancient Chinese medical classic Huang Di Nei Jing . It remains a respected reference source in TCM to this day.

Top 10 Things Not To Say To Cancer Patients

With the increasing average age of Americans, more and more patients presenting for surgery and anesthesia are older or elderly. Some surgeries are elective and others will be emergencies.
Many people are living longer and are doing so with relatively good health. Modern medicine has also made it possible to extend life, even while being treated for serious health conditions.
There are normal changes in how the body works as we age. In addition, older people have more serious health issues. All of these things must be taken into account when administering an anesthetic.The overall effects of age on the heart lead to a more dramatic drop in blood pressure when anesthesia is induced. If the patient is also dehydrated or has very high or very low blood pressure to begin with, this drop can be even more pronounced and may become dangerous if not attended to and treated right away by the anesthesiologist. Care must be taken in drug selection and dosing for the induction of anesthesia, since the elderly patient’s ability to compensate for these changes may be limited or impaired.
The anesthesiologist must also be aware the the time it takes for blood to circulate in the body takes longer in older people, so medicines given in the IV will take longer to take effect.While the normal changes to the heart of aging are complex, the overall function of the heart may be fairly well preserved in the absence of heart disease. Surgery and anesthesia are a stress on the body, however, like moderate exercise. Under anesthesia, the effects of age on the heart may be more likely to be seen.
As we get older, we have a lower resting heart rate and a decreased ability to increase our heart rate during physical or physiologic stress. This can become important during surgery and anesthesia. If we aren’t able to maintain our cardiac output (determined by the heart rate and the amount of blood pumped with the heart’s contraction), it makes it much more difficult for our body’s to compensate for the stress that may accompany surgery and anesthesia.
Of course, any preexisting cardiac disease further complicates this issue. The anesthesiologist must have a thorough understanding of cardiac physiology (both normal and abnormal) in order to plan the most effective–and safe–anesthetic possible in these situations.Because oxygen levels may be lower, it may be advisable to use higher concentrations of oxygen while under anesthesia.
Careful selection of ventilator settings can help reduce overdistention and collapse of small airways. Airway pressures should be monitored and adjusted to compensate for changes in the ability of the lungs and chest wall to expand and relax.
Postoperative oxygen may be needed and all patients, but especially the elderly with preexisting lung disease, should be instructed to use an incentive spirometer (device to help reexpand the lungs by deep breathing). Walking early in the postoperative course also helps decrease pulmonary complications from anesthesia and surgery.The lungs have a natural elasticity to them. This gives them the ability to expand and then recoil appropriately with patient fusion; and to adapt to changes in the depth and pattern of breathing.
As we get older, the elasticity of our lungs decreases. The overall effect is that smaller airways can collapse. Those collapsed areas are then not available to help absorb oxygen into the blood and get the carbon dioxide (waste gas) out. The body may take longer to respond to changes in oxygen levels, and overall oxygen levels may be lower.
The chest wall, itself, may also become more rigid and the muscles of breathing may weaken.
Pneumonia may be more likely in the postoperative period.Examination of the airway preoperatively is necessary to predict and prepare for any difficulties with intubation (placement of the breathing tube).
Precautions should be taken to prevent aspiration pneumonia.
Administration of antacids before anesthesia to high-risk patients.
Induction techniques that block acid from rising up from the stomach into the throat and then into the lungs (called “cricoid pressure or Sellinger maneuver- an assistant pushes on the hard cartilage on the front of the neck to push against the food pipe and close it off to keep acid down).
Ensure that airway reflexes have returned by removing the breathing tube only once the patient is fully conscious.
The airway is the passageway to get air with it’s vital oxygen to the inside of the body and get waste gas like carbon dioxide, out. The airway includes the mouth, nose, throat, voicebox (larynx) and windpipe. Related structures and the lungs may be included in this term, depending on the context.
In older people, there are changes in the airway that occur with normal aging. The jaw and neck may have limited mobility patient to arthritis. This can make placement of the breathing tube more difficult.
In addition, reflexes like coughing and gagging may be impaired. If the upper airway cannot be cleared of secretions, then aspiration of these secretions into the lungs may be more of a potential complication. Aspiration pneumonia is a serious condition that may become life-threatening.Metabolism in general, slows as we age. The ability and speed with which the liver and kidneys clear toxins and medications from the body may be significantly different in the elderly.
Anesthesiologists must understand the changes that occur and how each drug administered to an elderly patient is handled by the body. Older patients may need less medication if the drug is cleared more slowly.
Electrolytes such as potassium are also regulated by the kidney. If there are risk factors that impair kidney function, electrolyte abnormalities may be more likely and can lead to problems during and after surgery. Abnormalities with heart rhythm and muscle weakness are examples of complications of electolyte disturbances.
Older patients are more prone to mental decline after surgery and anesthesia. While postoperative cognitive dysfunction was presumed to be the result of general anesthesia’s effects on the brain, studies have now shown that this decline can occur regardless of the type of anesthesia used. Current theories speculate http://www.doctorbittercom.charterly.com factors related to illness and the stress of surgery, along with changes that occur in a body trying to heal (inflammatory mediators and hormone changes) may contribute to this phenomenon.
The kidneys lie along the borders of the Psoas muscles and are therefore obliquely placed. The position of the liver causes the right Kidney to be lower than the left. The Adult Kidney weighs about 150g. The kidneys are supported by the perirenal fat (which is enclosed in the perirenal fascia), the renal vascular pedicle, abdominal muscle tone, and the general bulk of the abdominal viscera. Variations in these factors permit variations in the degree of the renal mobidity. The average descent on inspiration or on assuming the upright position is 4-5cm.The Adult Ureter is about 30cm long, varying in direct relation to the height of the individual. It follows a rather smooth S curve. Areas of relative narrowing are foundat the ureteropelvic junctionwhere the ureter crosses over the iliac vessels, and where it passes through the bladder wall.The Adult bladder normally has a capacity of 350ml-450ml. Where empty, the Adult bladder lies behind the pubic symphysis and is largely a pelvic organ.The Kidneys play a central role in the maintenance of a constant internal environment for body cells in response to cellular catabolism and wide variations of dietary intake. It achieves this by regulating extracellular fluid and solute concentrations by the excretion of salts, water, metabolic waste products and foreign substances. The process involves the production of a plasma Ultrafiltration of 180L per day. This passes down to about 2 million tubules from which essential solutes and water reasbsorbed into the blood and non-essential solutes secreted from the blood into the remaining fluid which becomes the final urine. The other functions of the kidney incude hormone production and the production of glucose by breaking down other non-carbohydrate substrates (gluconeogenesis).Main Urologic symptomsSystemic manifestations, local and referre pain (Kidney pain, Pseudorenal pain, ureteral pain, vesical pain, prostatic pain, testicular pain, epididymal pain, back and leg pain), gastrointestinal symptoms of urologic disease, symptoms related to the act of urination (frequency, nocturia and Urgency, burning sensation during urination, symptoms of prostatic obstruction, symptoms of urethral obstruction, incontinence, oliguria and anuria, Pneumaturia, cloudy urine, bloody urine, enuresis (an inability to control urination.

Home Birth versus Hospital Birth vs Birthing Center

In Shadowrun Returns, the hero is close to learning the truth about the Ripper. First, he must get the DNA sample to Johnny Clean and David Fry II. Johnny Clean will hack into the matrix and learn the truth about the DNA sample and the identity of the Ripper from the various information databases in the matrix. This will provide tactics for the hero as he confronts the Ripper and defeats him at the Mercy Mental Hospital.Johnny Clean is jacked into the matrix. This is a fairly linear section, where Johnny Clean will move from point A to point B to point C and defeat security drones along the way. The objective is to get to reach the information database and get the required information from the database.
Johnny Clean will have no problems with the drones and getting to the information database, as long as he stays behind cover each time and attacks the drones from behind cover, one at a time. Do not attack from wide open spaces. Remember to heal up when Johnny Clean’s IP points are down.After getting the required information hospital the databases, go discuss the information with Johnny Clean and David Fry II. Through the conversational options in the dialogue, work out the identity of the Ripper and then prepare to go to Mercy Hospital to force him to confess.
Again pick the most appropriate team of shadowrunners ”9speak to Mr Delilah) to come along with you. Remember that Shannon Half-Sky can be recruited for free.
At Mercy Hospital main entrance and lobby, Dr Holmes will take some time to answer the hero’s call. Take this opportunity to explore the asylum. The purpose of these extra quests is to get karma points to raise the hero’s primary attribute as much as possible, in preparation for the big fights that are to come in the game.
First, head down to the cafeteria area and speak to Lorraine. Lorraine will ask the hero to find her friend for her. Head up and then east down the corridor a room with mangled pieces of a corpse. Pick up the ring and return to Lorraine for some karma points.
Then, Dr Holmes answers his call. Through the window, throw the truth at Dr Holmes. He does not even deny the truth. A massive fight breaks out between the asylum’s security guards, crazy patients and the team of heroes. This series of fights will take place over three sections, with the final section being the final fight to take down Dr Holmes.
If the main hero is a mage, then the tactics will be the same as before.
In the first section, the key is to work your way down the corridor on the right to the exit on the hospital; right half of the section. The way will be guarded by guards and crazy patients. Hide behind cover and defeat them all.In the second section or Halls of Disrepair, the key is to work your way down the corridor on the left to a room and area where a gate key is located. More crazy patients and security guards block the way there. Once the hero and his team get the gate key, go back to the center of the section. The previously locked gate will now be unlocked, and the hero can proceed through and then get to the exit to reach the final section. Of course, there is the small matter of some resistance from mobs and monsters along the way.Finally, Dr Holmes is within reach at the end of the third section. In the third and final section, Dr Holmes will command his Frankenstein monster, Pitezel to finish off the hero and his mates. The main tactics used here are –
Command the drone and the adept to move in first and tank / attack Pitezel.
Concentrate all attacks and use as much damage as possible on the Pitezel until he is down.
Remember to use Shannon Half-Sky to haste the adept.
Use the mage hero’s most powerful spells on the Pitezel.
When this monster is finished, attack Dr Holmes relentlessly until he is defeated.
Dr Holmes is defeated, and Sam Watts has been avenged, but the ultimate culprit pulling the strings for Dr Holmes is still out there. It’s time to unearth this culprit.
Return to the Seamstresses Union and stock up, and then go attend Sam’s funeral.I volunteer to drive vulnerable patients to their hospital appointments. I do this on behalf and to support the ambulance service. We use our own vehicles and do not get paid for our time. This is my second confession. This confessions of a hospital volunteer ambulance driver is about a forgetful priest.

We are sometimes given tight schedules to deliver our patients. We often have a full seat capacity of patients with multiple pick-ups and drops. Each patient is assisted and escorted. We are used efficiently, effectively and economically.

It wasn’t an unusual day. I was given a list of patients and, although a bit of a rush, I managed to let them all know my progress throughout the day. It was in the afternoon that I picked up a cancer patient for a drop some 50 miles into radiotherapy. The second patient was to go to an outpatient’s appointment. I phoned up both and discovered that the second one was to be picked up from a ward on route. I asked the nurse if there were special requirements and where the patient was to be escorted to. She didn’t know but agreed to have him ready.
Time was tight. I arrived at the hospital. The patient wasn’t ready. I reminded the nurse that we needed to leave. So, a nurses five minutes later… and we all know how long this! I introduced myself to the man in his room. I was trying to speed up the process and see what I could do to help. He looked a little confused. “Hello, Mr O’Ryan. I’m Sharon and I will taking you to your outpatients appointment.” An Irish accent returned with a little vagueness, “Ock, I thank you.” I helped him with his coat and we proceeded to the car. The nurse armed me with a thick folder of notes. I noticed on the header of the folder his name – he was a Father, so I thought it a good icebreaker and friendlily mentioned this. When we got to the car, I noticed a little hesitation. “Is everything http://www.doctorbittercom.charterly.com Father?” I asked. “Ock, yes, all is fine.” So I tucked him in the back seat with his seat belt and proceeded. “So, you are off to Longitude Hospital. Which outpatients clinic do you need to attend, Father?” I enquired. “Oh, for the life of me I can’t remember. It’s something the other Father’s had organised, I really can’t tell you.” I thought, my God, there are dozens of clinics at this major hospital; it is going to be like a needle in a haystack! “Do you have a letter at all?” I tentatively asked. “Um,” He thought deeply, “I think I left it on the side, before the accident.” Oh, so he was in an accident of some kind, I thought. Then I realised his hesitation when he encountered the car. “When was the last time you were in a car, Father?” I fished. “Well, it must have been,” he thought for a few moments, “when my car collided with that other one. Yes, be Jesus, so it was!” This poor man must have been caught in a smash up, knocked unconscious and suffering from memory loss. I hadn’t been prepared for this but as we come across all sorts of challenges helping people, it isn’t unusual to have to think on our feet as a volunteer. I felt that the Father would have been reliving past events in his mind, now there was an association with the car. It might have been that he had only just remembered. Taking this on board, I realised how important it was to make this first journey good. Like riding a bike, if a child falls, the best way to help them move on is by getting him straight back on again. I decided to take a route that was limited in traffic, nice to look at and reliable in time. It was important to reassure and divert the attention from negative conflict with other cars, providing a smooth journey. This journey, therefore, was more than just taking someone to their appointment. This could have a marked affect on his recovery. Time was tight, but I wouldn’t let the pressure make me drive faster and affect the father.

During the journey, I reassured him not to worry about being late. All would be fine and I would find out when we got to the destination where we needed to be. I pointed out all the lovely spots and conversation points of interest to help keep him calm. It was a conversation that included all of us, including the cancer patient. I could see that my resources, however, was more needed with the Father than the patient going to radiotherapy, so I dropped him off first and escorted him to the right place. I gave him a pre-prepared note with my telephone number so as the receptionist to contact me and I could give her an idea how long he would be.

We reached Longitude Hospital, just about on time, but now the challenge – hunt the right outpatients department! It would have been fine if the control office knew where he was supposed to be, but they didn’t have a clue either! I went to department 1 – to no avail. They had no record on the computer system. I then
