Peaking in January and February, Respiratory syncytial virus is the virus causing most common colds, when it is limited to the upper respiratory tract. Unfortunately when the virus aggravates the lower respiratory tract, complications occur, including respiratory distress, pneumonia, bronchiolitis and possibility the development of asthma. Pruitt also states that each year 125,000 children (mostly under 6 months of age) require hospitalization, and of these, about 2,500 die (Pruitt 63). Beyond this age, by about two years old, children have been exposed to RSV and have developed and immunity. If diagnosis of this infection is made through cultures of respiratory secretions, treatment begins immediately.
Understanding the risk for falls for people with Parkinson’s disease and use of appropriate fall interventions as delineated in The American Geriatrics Society AGS/BGS Clinical Practice Guideline: Prevention of Falls in Older Persons can help maintain the functional ability, increased independence and overall quality of life. Decreasing the Risk of Falls in the Patient with Parkinson’s Disease The leading cause of injury in the older adult is from falls, 30% of adults age sixty five and older fall at least one time per year and this number increases strongly with age.1 77% of people with Parkinson’s disease will experience a fall.2 They are twice as likely to experience recurrent falls compared to other elderly people.3 The purpose of this manuscript is to address fall risk and prevention in people with Parkinson’s disease to maintain or improve functional ability and quality of life. Parkinson’s disease is a progressive disorder of the nervous system that develops gradually and affects movement. These changes can affect balance and posture as well which increase the risk of falls. According to Canning and his
Even with that drop in the death rate, SIDS is still responsible for about 3,000 deaths per year (“Sudden Infant Death” 1621). There is a theory that SIDS is caused by rapid development. This theory that SIDS is a developmental thing argues that because a baby's brain is growing so quickly during its first six months of life, there is a chance that it may send an abnormal or wrong message to a critical organ system. Another theory is simply that these infants are just not healthy to begin with. This idea says that the baby's time in the womb before it was born may have placed it more at risk.
The purpose of this paper is to discuss data associated with falls, and identify risks and prevention strategies. Analysis of the data As the population continues to age, falls among the elderly are of great concern. It is important for healthcare facilities to implement dashboards to help improve performances of their facility and staff and to monitor patients who may be at risk for falls. The Sinai inpatient rehab unit used the National Data of Nursing Quality Indicators (NDNQI) to help measure nurse sensitive quality indicators such as falls. Falls are important to be monitored due to rising cost of care for patients who have fallen, and this will help decrease the chance of harm to patients.
More than half of those divorces will be witnessed by children under the age of 18. Those who divorce once double the likelihood that they will divorce again meaning children involved are more likely to experience subsequent divorces. Divorce can be devastating and create unhealthy and inappropriate norms in children such as aggression, withdrawn behavior, depression, risky behaviors and attitudes, and most significantly interruption of healthy, normal growth and development. Some research suggests that children from divorced homes experience more psychological trauma than those who experience the death of a parent. Divorce impacts the emotional wellbeing of children and adolescents under the age of 18 in multiple ways depending on their
