  • Muscular Dystrophies

    There are more than 30 different genetic diseases that are classified as muscular dystrophies. Muscular dystrophy is the weakness and degeneration of the skeletal muscles that often control movement. In muscular dystrophy, abnormal genes, also called mutations, interfere with the production of the proteins that are needed to form healthy muscle in the body. There are many kinds of muscular dystrophies and symptoms are more than likely begin during childhood. With different kinds of muscular…

  • Skeletal Muscle System

    The skeletal muscle system is made of many skeletal muscle fibers which have at least one neuromuscular junction. A neuromuscular junction is the area of the skeletal muscle fiber that is innervated by a motor neuron (motor nerve). It plays a key role in body movement and breathing along with our nervous system. The synaptic knob, motor end plate, and the synaptic cleft are all key parts of the neuromuscular junction. The synaptic knob of an axon connects with a skeletal muscle fiber to form the…

  • Anabolic-Androgenic Steroids Analysis

    The following article will discuss the effects that Anabolic-Androgenic Steroids can have on muscle development in the human body. Anabolic-androgenic steroids are commonly known for being taken for personal use but, there are many medical conditions where anabolic-androgenic steroids must be used and this will also be discussed. Anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS) are synthetic drugs related to the male sex hormones called androgens and the term anabolic, refers to the growth of skeletal…

  • Targeted Temperature Management Case Study

    The article that I choose was called “Targeted Temperature Management at 33°C versus 36°C after Cardiac Arrest”. The objective of the article was to find at which temperature was it better to induce hypothermia on a patient who had gone into cardiac arrest in an out-of-hospital scenario to prevent neurological damage and the. The researchers hoped that if by inducing hypothermia early on after the cardiac arrest and loss of consciousness there would be little to no brain damage. The researchers…

  • The Last Word On The Last Breath Analysis

    Why couldn’t we have let the patient die in peace?” (Hoffman, 2006, p.1) By using pathos and imagery to evoke sadness from the reader, the author makes one feel as if it is their family member having CPR. In extreme cases like a patient going into cardiac arrest, it is challenging to determine who should have the final say whether one should do CPR on the dying patient. According to the law, the family has control to decide, however, the article uses medical opinions to sway the reader’s…

  • Essay On Defibrillation

    Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest or OHCA is an abrupt loss of cardiac function in a public setting, usually occurring instantly or soon after symptom development (American Heart Association [AHA], 2014-a). Defibrillation and cardiopulmonary resuscitation or CPR are well-documented variables in predicting poor OHCA outcomes (Bur et al. 2001). CPR is the method of compressing a patient’s chest at 100 beats per minute, providing adequate blood flow to the body’s vital organs, preserving life (New…

  • Muscle Dystrophy Research Paper

    appears in the early childhood years and will worsen rapidly after that. Those who are affected will have delayed motor skills such as sitting and walking. DMD is also associated with a heart condition known as cardiomyopathy. This disease weakens the cardiac muscle which in this case. Prevents the heart from pumping blood. Symptoms of a dilated cardiomyopathy can include an irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath and extreme…

  • Muscular Dystrophy Essay

    Occurring mostly in males, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is an X-linked disorder that includes progressive muscle weakening caused by an insufficient gene for the production of a protein in the muscles called dystrophin. (Lucas-Heron, 1995) It affects about one in 3600-6000 live male births, making it the most common form of muscular dystrophy. Symptoms are most often noticeable by the time patients reach the age of three to five. The affected males will lose their ability to walk by eight to…

  • The Muscular System In The Human Body

    The muscular system function is that it allows movement of body parts, and works with skeletal system to help us move. Major muscles types : There are many muscles in the muscular system. Some are skeletal, smooth, and cardiac muscle. The skeletal muscle, smooth muscle, and cardiac muscle can stretch and contract, but they complete different functions. The skeletal muscle is attached to your skeleton by strong, springy tendons or is directly connected to rough patches of bone. The skeletal…

  • Sarcopenia Case Studies

    AIM: Sarcopenia has been defined as an involuntary loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength and/or function. The presence of sarcopenia in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) may have prognostic effects and may be mistaken for poor therapeutic control of PD. We aimed to evaluate sarcopenia in patients with PD. METHODS: One hundred non-demented PD patients, and 95 healthy subjects were included in the study. Avarage-Muscle mass, weight, bone mass, fat mass, basal metabolism rate (BMR), body…
