  • Research Paper On Hypothermia

    Merriam-Webster defines hypothermia as a condition in which the temperature of the body is very low. This condition is a medical emergency that occurs when the body loses more heat than what it is able to produce; hence, the body temperature decreases. The part of the brain called the hypothalamus is responsible for controlling body temperature; therefore, hypothermia is the result of the dysfunction of the hypothalamus. In order for a person to become hypothermic, their body temperature must be…

  • Hetastarch Hypovolemia Case Study

    Hypovolemia is a state in which the blood volume, specifically the volume of the blood plasma, is decreased. This can also lead to an imbalance in the volume contraction, or a decrease in the volume of body fluid, which includes osmolytes. Hypervolemia is often linked with sodium depletion, and is distinctly different from dehydration. Causes include loss of blood, loss of plasma, and loss of osmolytes via diarrhea and vomiting. It is recognized by tachycardia and diminished blood pressure, as…

  • Outline On Heart Failure

    heart failure, occurs when your heart muscle doesn't pump blood as well as it should. Certain conditions, such as narrowed arteries in your heart (coronary artery disease) or high blood pressure, gradually leave your heart too weak or stiff to fill and pump efficiently.” Web. . January 12, 2016 There are contributing factors that can lead to heart failure such as coronary artery disease, diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure. Management of these diseases such as daily exercise, weight…

  • Essay On Pneumothorax

    Post-Biopsy Care and Complications: After the procedure is done, the skin nick is cleaned and dressed, and a repeat scan is obtained to rule out the presence of a pneumothorax. Most institutions obtain two post-biopsy chest radiographs, one immediate baseline and a repeat 2-3-hour study, to ensure no enlarging pneumothorax. The patients are observed until the follow up radiograph is obtained while fasting in case a chest tube insertion is needed (Fig. 5). The patient is discharged if the follow…

  • Electrocardiogram Test Lab Report

    - The purpose of the Electrocardiogram test is to monitor and measure the quantity and quality of the electrical rhythm of the heart. Understanding the electrical rhythms of the heart is important because your heart's electrical system controls the timing of your heartbeat and you would have to understand how the electrical rhythm of the heart should be to know what problems may be occurring. There are three common variables that are encountered in an electrocardiogram which are the direction…

  • The Human Body: The Respiratory System

    The respiratory system is responsible for taking in oxygen and releasing carbon dioxide. The lungs are the main organs in the respiratory system. According to the American Lung Association, red blood cells collect the oxygen from the lungs and carry it throughout the body where it is needed. As the red blood cells travel through the body, they collect the carbon dioxide, taking it back to the lungs where it is then exhaled. The human body needs oxygen in order to sustain itself. The average…

  • Health And Social Care Level 3 Unit 3 Energy Systems M1

    They function is to circulate the blood around the body to all the muscles. The red blood cells carry oxygen to all the muscles through the vein (carries blood to the heart). The veins have thin walls and contain blood under the low pressure. The arteries (carries blood away from the heart) have thick muscular walls and small passage ways. They contain blood under high pressure. The last blood vessels is the capillaries (found in the muscles and the lungs). They are one cell thick, and have low…

  • The Importance Of Exercise In The Human Body

    Introduction: Our modern society is engaged in pursuing a healthy and active lifestyle in order to avoid common health problems such as obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes mellitus to name a few. Exercise duration, frequency and intensity all are relevant in triggering physiological responses in our bodies. For example, skeletal muscles demand an increase in oxygen and substrates and simultaneously remove carbon dioxide and metabolites (Burton et al., 2004). Furthermore, studies have…

  • What Is Congested Heart Failure

    Congested Heart Failure, often referred to as CHF, is when the hearts output pressure is weaker than normal. This will cause the blood to have a decreased pressure circulating the body, but the internal pressure within the heart will increase. As a result the heart cannot keep up with supplying the body enough oxygen and nutrients that it depends on. So the chambers of the heart will stretch due to the increase in pressure to try and hold more blood to pump through the body or may become stiff…

  • Hypovolemic Shock

    Hypovolemic shock is the result of severe blood/fluid loss causing the heart to inadequately circulate oxygen to the rest of the body (Workman, 2013, pp. 812). In this condition, there is sudden decrease in blood volume within the vascular space causing a drop in mean arterial pressure. This decrease in mean arterial pressure causes a sudden loss in the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood related to the sudden decline in available red blood cells. As the heart is unable to properly pump oxygen…
