Running Head: A Fantastic Voyage: Battle of the Bacterium 1 A Fantastic Voyage HS130-03 Unit #4 Assignment Kaplan University February 4, 2014 A Fantastic Voyage: Battle of the Bacterium 2 This is Heather Handley coming to you live inside SubMed. SubMed is a mini sub that is going to tour the inside of a human body. While we wait for the green light to go I will explain what is happening. I have been placed in a sub that was shrunk down to eight microns and will be inserted inside the right femoral vein of a healthy female named Zoey. The right femoral vein is located in the thigh and pelvic region of the body.
Make proper nursing interventions if needed. Check the central pulse and note skin color, temperature and moisture when assessing circulation. Assess skin turgor for dehydration. Initiate intravenous access and begin running fluids. Place a urinary catheter to accurately measure output.
The use for Listerine is for “helping control plaque that lead to gingivitis”. Listerine is also used to “rapidly penetrate the bioform (another word for plaque) to kill plaque and gingivitis germs” (McNeil-PPC Inc, 2013). The result that was expected was that the bacteria will drastically immediately after rinsing with Listerine, and after about five minutes, the bacteria will start to form again. Materials and Methods This experiment, conducted on February 20, 2013, requited each group to have four sterile plates, four clean volumetric medicine cups, eight sterile pipettes, six sterile swabs, and of course, one medicine cup filled with 20 mL of Listerine. Notice how
P4: The Cardiovascular system The cardiovascular system refers to the heart, blood vessels and the systematic circulation (blood). Blood contains oxygen and other nutrients which your body needs to survive. The body takes these essential nutrients from the blood. At the same time, the body dumps waste products like carbon dioxide, back into the blood, so they can be removed. The main function of the cardiovascular system is therefore to maintain blood flow to all parts of the body, to allow it to survive.
Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen, last week I spoke to you about “The History of Phlebotomy”. This evening I would like to speak to you about the equipment and supplies used in phlebotomy and blood collection. The first and most important thing to remember is Universal Precautions. Universal Precautions refer to infection control with human blood and certain human body fluids; the best way to do this is to wash your hands. As a phlebotomist in blood collection, you wash your hands before and after each patient.
When creatine is consumed it travels through out the body to the muscles. Creatine attracts water to the muscles which causes the muscles to get leaner. Not only is creatine used by athletes and body builders to strengthens the muscles it is used by patients with medical diseases in hospitals. Creatine has been treated as it has been suggested as a complementary treatment for conditions in which muscle weakness occurs, such as muscular dystrophy, congestive heart failure, Huntington's disease, McArdle's disease (also called glycogen storage disease type V), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, Parkinson's disease and after injury or surgery according to about.com. Possible side effects that creatine monohydrate has on the human body after consuming the liquid is stomach cramps, muscle cramps, weight gain, loss of appetite diarrhea and nausea.
Then travels will resume in the bloodstream via the superior mesenteric vein. All major passageways and structures will be described going through the superior mesenteric vein all the way to the left renal artery. Once the voyage gets to the kidney, the nearest nephron will be entered. All structures will be discussed passing through on the way to the urinary tract where the voyage will exit out through the urethra. This journey is quite far but very interesting.
This experiment is important to do because we must understand the way enzymes work in our own body, and so would be important to medical researchers trying to see how different things affects the body. Research Question: What is the effect of H2O2 concentration on float speed of Catalase soaked coffee filter? Hypothesis. Catalase is an enzyme that digests Hydrogen Peroxides into water and oxygen. Since the speed of an enzyme reaction relies on whether there is any substrate to react with, float speed should increase as substrate concentration increases.
Bus 707, 2012, Practice Case 1, September 12/2012 Lululemon and Vitasea; Reputational Capital Test* Instructions: We will open up our glass discussion on Feb 16, before lunch, with this case Overview Firms, even those attempting to engage in responsive and responsible social action are often tested. On November 14, 2007, the article on the front page of the New York Times business section read, “Seaweed Clothing has none, Tests Show." The story strongly asserted that one of Lululemon's product lines, Vitasea, which purported to contain a seaweed fibers designed to release marine amino acids, minerals and vitamins into the skin upon contact with moisture. Indeed, contain no such ingredient whatsoever. Both Mr. Chip Wilson, Chairman and Founder of athletic wear retailer Lululemon and Robert Mears, Lululemon’s, CEO, were about to embark in the first damage-control mission since the company's Initial Public Offering in July of 2007.
DVT left lower extremity 2. Thrombophlebitis 3. Cellulitis PLAN Diagnostic Doppler Ultrasonography: Often the test of choice in detecting DVT. With the use of sound waves, showing the velocity of blood flow through the veins and arteries, the diagnosis of DVT can be ascertained. Impedance Plethysmography and Compression ultrasound scanning of the left leg veins also useful in aiding diagnosis of DVT and Thrombophlebitis.
