If you are a person who googles everything, then you will be redirected to the article Noninvasive Ventilation written by Guy Soo Hoo that states “Noninvasive ventilation (NIV) refers to the administration of ventilatory support without using an invasive artificial airway (endotracheal tube or tracheostomy tube).” Now if you are a person that likes to look at books to get the answer, then David W. Chang wrote in Clinical Application of Mechanical Ventilation that “noninvasive positive pressure ventilation is a technique of providing ventilation without the use of an artificial airway.” Wherever you want to get the definition from, the purpose is all the same: to help the ventilation of the patient without having an artificial airway. Now that does not sound awful, but what about when a person has to be on this ventilation for long periods of time? What happens to the patient 's face from having that mask sit against it for hours at a time? Not every medical practice can be errorless and noninvasive ventilation has its downfalls too. Having a mask sit on your face for hours on end can cause lesions on the skin that a patient will not want on his or her face. There are many different interfaces for noninvasive ventilation, so some may be less harmful than others, but is the mask the only way these lesions can happen? In this paper we will investigate all the different reasons a patient can get this discomfort from a mask. Now let…

    I had my first surgery ever during the summer of 2015. I was sitting at home in my cozy living room and a sense of pain would come across my throat as well as my ears feeling full with water. I asked my mom to look in my throat because every time I swallowed, it felt like a piece of sand paper was scrapping my throat. I remember her saying we should go to the doctor bright and early in the morning because there were white, clammy spots deep in the back of my throat that should not be there.…

    For three weeks, I spent 85 hours in the operating room working closely with the nurses and observing countless surgeries. During my time, I learned that a lot of facets of surgery-for instance observing an open body cavity- do not phase me: I tend to lean in to get a closer look rather than shy away. However, in the middle of my second week, I learned that this indifference to the gruesomeness of surgery may not always be a strength. This realization came during the first amputation I observed.…
