  • Bjork-Shiley Heart Valve Case Study

    Every year, thousands people get heart valve replacements. There are multiple options for replacement valves that can be generalized as either mechanical or biological. One of the mechanical options from the 1970s and 1980s was the Bjork-Shiley valve, which became infamous because of the controversy surrounding its stress fracture failures. These failures resulted the death of about 400 people, causing the valve to be taken off the market. The decisions made leading to this issue must be examined using various ethical frameworks so that an incident like this will not occur in the future. Ultimately, the FDA should require either third party or FDA in-house testing in order to ensure the safety of a medical device before it is approved for market,…

  • Faucet Repair Case Study

    Before calling a plumber in Arlington, check the water pressure at other faucets. If the water pressure is low only at a single faucet, first ensure the shut off valve is open. Next, inspect the aerator for clogging due to hard water sediment. Soaking in vinegar and scrubbing with a soft brush should correct the problem. Otherwise, replace the aerator. While the aerator is off check the water pressure at the faucet. If low, a problem is affecting the faucet. Faucets receive significant use,…

  • Heat Transfer Lab Report

    Next, the arrow icon was clicked to begin measuring temperatures. After that, the water drain valve was closed tightly. Next, the water flow was set to 2 gpm, and the steam valves were opened. Flow rate oscillated up and down during the process of heating, so adjustment was required to maintain the desired flow rate. Then, temperatures were recorded if stabilization and no significant changes occurred. Next, the tubes were examined, and the transition between boiling and non-boiling heat…

  • French Horn Evolution

    still highly limited in reaching its full musical potential. 1.3 Addition of valves The addition of valves around 1815 is arguably the most significant development in French horn technology. A crude piston valve system, known as the Stölzel valve, was developed around 1815 by Heinrich Stölzel and Friedrich Blühmel. In this system created by Stölzel and Blühmel, air entered through the bottom of the final valve in the sequence. The air would then travel either through an extended length of…

  • Prosthetic Aortic Valve Endocarditis Case Study

    Prosthetic aortic valve endocarditis without evidence of vegetation Introduction The modified Duke criteria for the diagnosis of infective endocarditis (IE) include three major and five minor criteria. One of the major criteria is evidence of structural findings on echocardiography such as an oscillating intracardiac mass, abscess or partial dehiscence of a prosthetic valve (1-2). Less common echocardiographic findings of IE include pseudoaneurysm, fistula, or valve perforation. The American…

  • Essay On Mitral Valve

    The mitral valve is the valve that regulates flow from the left atrium of the heart into the left ventricle. This valve is subject to a few different diseases and pathologies that affect its form and function. One of those diseases is mitral valve stenosis which is when the mitral opening between the left atrium and the left ventricle narrows and restricts the blood flow through it. The etiology, pathology and symptoms of mitral valve stenosis are well known and well documented which allows…
