O'Connor in the American Journal of Drug and Alcohol abuse, children with fetal alcohol syndrome may show cognitive and attention deficits, increased activity levels, problems in inhibition and state regulation, perseverative behavior, and expressive language and motor problems. These problems may last into and throughout adulthood. They may have difficulties such as bonding in infants and depression in 4-6 year olds. There have been reports of depression, anxiety, psychosis, somatic complaints, delinquency, hyperactivity and sleep disorders. O'Connor also reports in a study done on 473 people that were prenatally exposed to alcohol 44% were diagnosed with major depressive disorder, 40% had psychotic disorders, and 20% had bipolar disorders(Women's Health1).
Huntington also creates inability to enjoy life and lack of energy. Sometime delusions and hallucination, paranoia, and bad behavior occurs. After age 50 some people may suffer depression rather than anger or irritability. These symptoms affects many parts of the human body that why we need a medical answer to prevent and stop this disease. People in families with high percentages of Huntington don’t have a promising future even the children are at risk.
Unit 517 Lead Person Centred Practise (HSCM1) 1.5 Explain how person centred practise can result in positive changes for an individual. Person centred practise (PCP) places the individual at the centre of the care they receive and this can lead to a lot of positive changes. Before the use of PCP, treatment of an individual was based on their condition (medical model). Decisions are continually made for the individual as they are only defined as being independent once they overcome their disabilities. Taking away a person’s choices long-term may lead to ill effects such as withdrawal, depression, lack of motivation, lack of progression, delusions of over dependency, challenging behaviours, lack of opportunities and community access and institutionalisation.
Unit 2 Health and Human development- Chapter 6: Key term definitions Amniotic fluid – the fluid surrounding he embryo/foetus, which acts as a protective barrier. Antenatal - occurring before birth ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) – a condition which is a pattern of impulsiveness, inattention and overactivity. Autoimmune disease – the immune system attacking and destroying healthy body cells. Cephalocaudal development – development that occurs from the head downwards. Child mortality – deaths that occur between the first birthday and 12 years of age.
For some though, such is not the case, there may be stress and fear. While most parents are wondering simple things, such as, if it’s a boy or girl, others are wondering whether or not their past or current alcohol addiction will be a concern. Alcohol could be one of the oldest addictions in these United States, (U.S.) today. Drinking alcohol during pregnancy, once thought to be rare, now is commonly known to cause birth defects, mental retardation and developmental delay, worldwide, (Burd). One of those birth defects is fetal alcohol syndrome or F.A.S., and as Dr. Burd explains: “The current term used to describe the full range of these problems is fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, (F.A.S.D.).
Who is to predict that we will not be involved with data collection for the future research on the current H1N1 flu and its effect on the pregnant mothers and their unborn child? From module 4 readings and specifically from the model of viral and immune causes of schizophrenia, one can explain an increase in the rate of schizophrenia. For example, maternal infection with H1N1 flu during the second trimester of pregnancy can lead to increased risk of schizophrenia later in life amongst their offspring (Sadock & Sadock 2007). Studies have shown that when you infect a pregnant animal with different respiratory viruses, it can lead to abnormal cognitive and behavioral problems. Some other studies have shown that the 20th centuries flu's correlate with an increased risk of schizophrenia.
A suggestive approach to help with these difficulties of treating gait abnormality have been suggested: 1. A screening exercise could identify the scale and type of the problem (using gait analysis). 2. A RCT is needed to assess surgical treatment. Treatment protocols need further work, however, more research on the topic will help with reliable evidence to indicate whether such management could help improve ambulation in chronic stroke
Some personal problems that can cause drop outs are pregnancies, marriage, and ect. Becoming a mother or a father at a young age is a big responsibility. When teens have kids, some tend to quit school without thinking about their child's future. Also, marriage can be a very stressful factor to any student. Stressing leads
Public health Some information is used for public health. It lets the NHS look ahead and plan what to do if there are outbreaks of diseases. It also helps the NHS to take action now to stop problems from happening in the future. Research Information also helps to improve medicines and treatments for patients. Researchers study it to find better ways to prevent illness and treat conditions.
Synthesis #2 1) Approximately 1% of babies in the United States are born with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders or (FASD). FASD is an umbrella term for all birth related defects associated with alcohol exposure prenatally (O’Connor & Whaley, 2007). Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, or (FAS) is a specific medical diagnosis for permanent conditions from birth to prenatal alcohol related conditions (Rasmussen et al., 2012). FAS can result in mental disabilities, as well as psychological and behavioral problems (Rasmussen et al., 2012). Children who are diagnosed with FAS, are also put at risk for maltreatment by their mothers (Grant, Ernst, Streissguth, Stark; 2005).
