combination of these factors. There are many factors attributing to the risk of pressure ulcers. Pressure ulcers are acquired as a result of prolonged periods of immobility during unrelieved pressure which compresses tissues that overlie in bony prominences. The principal factor in pressure ulcer development is excessive tissue pressure that prevents the normal supply of blood to the affected area. The severity of skin and tissue damage will depend on how long the patient had been exposed. Prevention is the best intervention for pressure ulcers. There are several risk factors that have been identified to make a patient more vulnerable to acquiring a pressure ulcer. Pressure friction and shear are thought to contribute to the development of pressure ulcers. Certain groups of patients have a higher risk…

Not only is it illegal to take these things, it is incredibly immoral to do with or without a law. Before laws were implemented, doctors could take from their patients as they…
Intramuscular adipose tissue or IMAT is a predictor of mobility function in a variety of metabolic, orthopedic, and neurological conditions treated at our practices. High level of IMAT are associated with muscle weakness, movement dysfunctions, and insulin resistance affecting motoric abilities. Although CT and MRI have been able to measured IMAT in several studies, there is a need for these imaging techniques to routinely quantify it. Comparisons between MRI and CT for IMAT identification have…
Therefore, obesity should be defined by an excess adipose tissue not the weight. Similarly, Rothman (2008) argues about various limitation of BMI technique, such as, the measurement does not differentiate the increase of muscle mass or fat mass which vary with different gender. Also, there are other factors to consider while measuring obesity because the relationship between percentage body fat and BMI varies with ethnicity Rothman…
