  • Furosemide Conclusion

    Conclusion My hypothesis stated that Digitalis and Furosemide will both work upon the patient’s left side heart failure. However, the experiment concluded that only Digitalis was effective upon the patient’s condition. Administration of Furosemide led to a relatively quick death of the patient. I did not expect the patient to die while being administered Furosemide. In fact, I had hypothesized that while both drugs would work effectively upon the patient, that the Furosemide would work at a faster rate. If I were to make an alternative hypothesis for the experiment, I would still say that Digitalis would accomplish its goal of helping the patient. But, I would hypothesize that Furosemide would help the symptoms, but not treat the actual problem. The main point of Furosemide is to be used as a diuretic, which allows for some relief from water and sodium retention ("Furosemide", 2014). Digitalis, however, acts by assisting the heart in beating stronger and with a more regular rhythm, therefore actually help treat the actual problem ("Digoxin", 2014). My calculations for the experiments are as follows: The calculations for each value are as follows: Minute Rate (ml/minute) = Tidal Volume x Respiratory Rate Alveolar Ventilation Rate (mL/minute) = Respiratory Rate (Tidal Volume x .70) Stroke Volume (mL/beat) = Cardiac Output / Heart Rate Pulse Pressure (mmHg) = Systolic Blood Pressure - Diastolic Blood Pressure Mean Arterial Pressure (mmHg) = 1/3(Systolic Blood Pressure -…

  • Case Study: The Apricot Tree Cafe

    Daniel Chandler emphasis this in his references to Saussure’s “two-part model of the sign” (Chandler, 2002), which provides an explanation onto why the name and location may be causing confusion to the patrons. Saussure two-part model discusses how the listener of a signifier which in this case be the word “café” would psychologically associate it with “other elements associated with it in a linguistic sign” (Chandler, 2002) which is the signified.

  • Visual Rhetoric And Propaganda In Walmart

    According to Roland Barthes’ myth formula, a sign acts as a signifier when society assigns it a widely accepted meaning. The meaning of the sign, called the signified, makes a sign logical.
